I got my exercise for the day...danced the entire time they played...which was over an hour. Wee!
Here's more info on them (I stole from their FB):
Tactical Sekt is an elektro-industrial act consisting of Anthony Mather (USA - Vocals, Keyboards, Programming), Robert Schott (Live Synths,Visuals) and Jay Taylor (UK - Live Drums). They are known for their powerful, noisy, dark electronic sound.
Tactical Sekt was conceived in the mind of Anthony Mather in about 2002/2003. Mather previously had experience with elektro-industrial music in his former band, Aslan Faction.
After some time, Aslan Faction stopped performing live and making new music, which persuaded Anthony Mather to devote himself totally to Tactical Sekt. The album “Geneticide” was soon put out and it featured, as Ant said in one interview: “…mostly songs that didn’t fit into Aslan Faction music profile…”.
Soon after “Geneticide” in 2003, “Burn Process” was released. The music and the atmosphere was much more euro-trance alike, emphasizing that Aslan Faction days were over.
In the following years Tactical Sekt were mostly performing live and doing remixes for other acts.
In spring 2006, a new album was coming out - “Syncope.” It featured 13 tracks, and besides the regular album, a limited edition was published which featured never released tracks, mostly from the “Geneticide” period.
Some pics from the show:
Me and Jenny...can't help but be silly when we're together. :-)
More silliness...can you see my brain through my nose?
Jay (the drummer) getting into it!
Anthony looking lost while Jay seems to be doing something inappropriate with his drumsticks...ha!
In between songs
Anthony! This is not zoomed in, he was this close to me. :-)
Robert looks like "Dad, he just hit me!"...Jay, "Nuh uh!"
Trying to get a picture of Jay being brave...then he fell on me and on the way down hit my friend Sarah in the face! You know you've had a good time when you leave a show with battle wounds!
He dusted himself off and got back to work!
Robert looking serene
I'm on the far left with a huge grin and you can only see half of my face. Hee hee. My friend Sarah is next to me with the spiked collar and bracelets. I think this was before she got hit in the face.
Again on the left, dancing I think in mid blink...
My makeup look for the show. I'm wearing Morgana Cryptoria Makeup and I'm wearing clip on bangs. I think I look kinda weird. They should be longer BUT I have a huge forehead and couldn't clip them more forward to look longer. Oh well! Might just have to make my own at some point to be the right length.
Some videos of Tactical Sekt if you're interested in hearing what they sound like. They played these songs at the show. Just so you know, it's dark and noisy. :-D
My fav song "Not Entertained"
