    Did anyone go?

    Bar the massive wait, then him going off within the hour, it was an amazing night.

    Played plenty of Madvillain, King Geedorah and MF Doom stuff. Not much off his new album, which was good news.

    The support was weak as piss though. Has some weird video for about half an hour with some strange noise and constant bass sound which came to nothing.

    My heart sank when some blatant imposter came on to Accordion. So glad when he fucked off and the real Doom came onstage.

    I thought it was shite.

    Travelled all the way down to London on borrowed money to watch an average performance.

    He didnt need to shout, visuals were poor and the sound quality was laughable.

    Waste of time and money. Biggest dissapointment of 2010

    Yeh, the sound was pretty wank. Why do you care about the visuals? I was watching doom. And he wasn't shouting that much. His hype man was a right pain in the arse though.

    I enjoyed it, and was real glad I went. Maybe if money was a bit tighter I might be a bit annoyed.

    But I doubt I'll get a chance to see him live ever again, so to me it was worth it.

    The thing with Doom is that you want the whole performance. The words are intricate and should be spoken, shouted. his hype man was weak.

    Wait an hour whilst they play cheesy filler pop music? No thanks.

    They could have put on an amazing performace but they flopped it. £30 for 1 hour, which was late? No thanks.

    Respect for playing some gheeodah, but it just furthers my belief that Hip hop should be small to medium venue.

    Atleast someone enjoyed it.

    Yeh, the venue was poor, support acts wern't fantastic and that akward hour of nothing but dance tunes was horrid.

    But I thought Doom himself was good man.

    I really wanted to hit this, cos like you say seeing Doom is a pretty rare opportunity, but just couldn't stump up the £30 for one artist and for some reason didn't think the crowd would be that good etc.

    I bought a ticket but sold it when he started doing no shows in the US, but now he's sorted out his passport issues I think he'll definitely be back soon, espescially with Madvillain 2 planned to be released this year. I wouldnt miss a Madvillain show.

    Yeh, I hope he does come back.

    And with Madlib?

    I think I'd have a heart attack.
