This recording was culled from the second performance I attended on the band’s last tour. That was seven years ago this month. Last week GYBE announced that they would be reforming to curate this year’s All Tomorrow’s Parties festival in England. After that, “a handful of British and European shows, and then 9 American towns.” You can bet your ass I’ll be at whatever US shows I can possibly attend come this winter. I saw three shows on that final tour of 2003, and each one was more miraculous than the last. I hope when the time comes to see them again, I can behold that awe that is “Moya” since Moya will actually be playing with the band this time around.
I remember waiting in line to get into the show was the first time I met Anthony V. from The Hype Machine. I gave him my spare ticket and we watched Jackie-O Motherfucker and part of Godspeed’s set together at the very front of the stage. I eventually moved further back in the club to improve upon the sound, but Anthony and I have remained somewhat in contact ever since that night, and I’m happy I got to meet him and help him into the show. I’m sure if I end up flying home to see the band in New York, he’ll be there too. And we can have this same conversation, which we always have when we see each other. It’ll be fun.
Godspeed You Black Emperor
