Guilfest Reviews & Photos
Hey Guys,

Its been just under two weeks since Karn8 played the Rocksound Cave at Guilfest and we thought this would be a good time to look back on the performance and let you in on some of the feedback and photographs we have received after the performance.

Guilfest Reviews
These are a couple of the reviews we have had in so far:

"It’s been a slow start at Guilfest on Friday so we’re more than ready for some dirty rock and roll and fortunately Karn8 are on hand to deliver the goods. This Hampshire based three piece centre around drums and guitar (courtesy of Leigh and Bones respectively) with singer Kirst providing the vocals and occasional additional guitar duties. The music is upbeat rock and roll leaning distinctly towards the garage end of the genre populated by the likes of MC5, although to bring it up to date they remind me of Juliette & The Licks. Kirst has some well practiced moves straight from the Debby Harry book of stage craft and she makes a compelling figure.

They mix up styles nicely with songs like ‘Old No.7’ dipping into smoke filled blues bars, whilst ‘Where the Fires Play’ rips it up like the Stooges at their most intense. The set isn’t without it’s problems however, the horrendous drone that plagued this tent last year threatens to return and it’s just not loud enough. The problem with this is firstly that it prevents Kirst’s voice from carrying too well and secondly that what should be bold slabs of rock and roll fall a little flat. That aside though it’s an assured and confident performance and they even pull off a passable version of The Doors' ‘Wild Child’. All in all it’s good stuff but they really need to be seen in a club venue with the volume cranked to the max."

Andrew Latham @ Room Thirteen

"Hampshire based trio Karn8 play a blistering set on the Rocksound stage. Front woman Kirst has a sultry and seductive vocal which draws you in only to be blown away by the heavy growl which hits the back of the tent, this really gives the band a depth and quality that many bands would like to have. They take in many styles of music and mix them up to create their own unique sound, which has certainly earned them an army of fans, many of which seem to be here to see them today as the tent is packed."

Karn8 are pleased to announce that our debut album ‘Of All The Strange Things’ is out now on Wicked Boy Records. The album was recorded and produced by the band and mastered by Clive Cherry at Tongue and Groove Studios. It has taken two years to complete and we are very proud of the results. You can purchase a copy via the online shop or download from iTunes .... Enjoy!

Album Review

"What is noticeable as the second track kicks in is that Karn8 inject a lot of energy to their music - there’s a bit of a Rage Against The Machine thing going on in ‘As If You Could’ and ‘Strip’ opens up to a noisy distorted guitar riff in the choruses. The return at the end of ‘Running Free’ has the building blocks of something that could turn into an extended Kyuss-esque jam but sadly doesn’t.

Female singer Kirst’s sultry voice really shines on ‘True Face’, a stripped down song made up of a moving bass line and precise cymbal clangs. In fact the entire album is held together by some really nice bass grooves throughout, courtesy of Bones, and the whole thing is bookended by the sombre acoustic guitar led ‘Wasteland’ and its reprise.

It’s obvious that the band have been working hard to find sound and it really shows. The version of ‘Where The Fires Play’ on this album is much better than the early single release as the mix is a lot more balanced and it just livelier. These are songs that have possibly been written to be played live rather than played back on a record.

The production is raw and organic which is what usually happens when bands record things themselves meaning that the drums sound like drums, the guitars like guitars and so on without being pro tooled to death. That’s not to say it’s bad or sloppy, just that it captures a live feel and an essence of a group of people having fun with their music.

They haven’t created a new genre or discovered new song structures, what they have done is produce 12 songs, whether good, bad or average, that really link together in one fully formed package. There is room for improvement, some of the song such as ‘Over’ are forgettable and don’t really go anywhere, but very few bands make a five star album first time round.

They’re not original, not trying new or different but Karn8 do a pretty good job at making an album that follows the traditional rock standard. On Of All The Strange Things the band deliver nuts and bolts rock ‘n’ roll that harks back to the days when guitar bands played guitar songs and is not too dissimilar to some of the groups currently flirting with the mainstream or apart of it."

Facebook Fan Page

As some of you will already know, Karn8 have had a Facebook Group for some time. But we have found this to be slightly limited, so we have now started a Karn8 Facebook Fan Page.
This has more options and makes it far easier or us to communicate with everyone. So join up here

New Look Myspace Page

Along with the release of the new album. Our myspace page has had an overhaul, so that it better fits in with the new look. This includes a new track 'Good Time' from the album, so don't forget to check it out here

GU2 Radio

Karn8 are also due to appear on Guildford's Student GU2 Radio from 7pm on Friday 20th February, to help promote the Album and have a good old chat. Be sure to listen online here

Also a local tour:

That last gig is going to be an Eating the Elephant night, in case any of you guessed, and Karn8 will also be playing an EtE in June (reviews here and here).

corpse bride on saturday
This Saturday the Hull Screen is showing Tim Burton's The Corpse Bride - I know you've probably all seen it by now, but one more time before it goes to DVD won't do any harm, will it? Especially when it only costs £1.50 to get in - you've got to love arts cinemas!

Anyway - the details: this Saturday (2006-01-21) at 14:00 (two o'clock). For those who haven't been, the Hull Screen is attached to the central library in town, so meeting up at around 13:30 in the coffee shop also attached would seem to be called for?

Eight Zero - Welly - Friday 13th
A bit late, I know, but I've been trying desperately to find out about this one without success.

Welly are doing an Eighties night on the second Friday of every month, but the band-playing list features many top eighties Goth/Alternative bands including The Pixies, Siouxsie, and my old favourites The Miss- er, The Sisters.

I'm going along tonight to find out more. I can't tell you prices or times, only that you get £1 off with an NUS card.

Have a good weekend!

requiem, vagueness

Holy Trinity Church has regular organ recitals in the evenings. In October this will involve accompaniment by a choir and orchestra, for selected works by Mozart, including Requiem.

Going from memory I think it's on the 17th at around seven / seven-thirty, and costing five quid. If anyone's interested I have an email address somewhere to contact for more details

p.s. would possibly be a good idea to meet in a pub either beforehand or post-recital. I'd suggest Ye Olde White Harte or the Mission, but I haven't been to either on a Monday night.

Grave Peril

Anyone know anything about this band? I saw a poster for a gig tomorrow (today now - 2005-July-21st) which described them as Horror Punk. There are links between that (sub) genre and deathrock / Goth, so I may go along, though the other bands playing are out-and-out punk.

Diverse Unit says the following:

Grave Peril are... Craig Robson AKA Victor Grave - Scott Dunham AKA Joey Against - Liam Conman - Dale Robson AKA Frankie Valentine - Pictures coming soon...

A listing for the gig can be found on Punk and Oi in the UK

Hull, Ringside
The Mingers + b.s.d + the Infested + grave Peril
ringside, beverley road £3 7.30 start (ish)

Oh, and found a non-existant website, which wasn't very informative.

[edit] In the event the horror punk band weren't there - the line-up that actually played was Bundy and MCD (both from KuH), BSD (from Sheffield) and the Infested (from Leeds).

So, the Odeon (last time I checked - Tuesday) only showed Constantine at the weekend, whether it's only next weekend I don't know (and neither do they), leaving the UGC cinema, which I've never been to (as with all Hullian cinemas), but which I also haven't ever even seen. From the map it looks to be absolutely miles out and not-at-all easy to get to. The answer I am trying to solicit (preferably before tomorrow) is whether to bother seeing it in Hull, or go see it in London instead. If the latter then there's always the Invincibles later on in the month (er, week after next I think, but check the Hull Screen website to confirm).

Oh, and Chiquita's kitchen is currently closed, so it's a drinks-only restaurant right now.

Monday, March 14th, 2005
5:50 pm

Since moving to Hull I still haven't been to a local cinema. Initial expectations were dashed as I realised my closest cinema had just closed, but at least there's still an Odeon an arts cinema (in the library) and some other cinema to the north somewhere (which you can probably tell I haven't investigated too thoroughly).
So as not too seem too sad (going to watch a film on my own) who wants to participate in a mass outing? No particularly Gothic films coming up, to the best of my knowledge so we'd have to settle for Constantine at the Odeon or The Invincibles at the arts place. I've seen the latter before and wouldn't mind watching it again (especially as it means I finally got to see what this library screen was like), though I fear we'd have to put up with lots of kids, it being a means of subsidising the more arty films they show by getting masses of people through the door by showing crowd-pleasers.
There would, of course, be a pub visit following, and maybe a meal somewhere at a not-too-expensive place that would have to have decent vegetarian options (suggestions?)

Hi everyone, just joined the community with an intention that is somewhat at a tangent.
Basically, I'm trying to get an V:TM campaign up and running sometime soon, yes i know that coming here and asking for players for a V:TM campaign is an immense act of sterotyping, but i'm doing it anyway. Anyone interested?
yeah, i do live in Hull.

Considering the amount of people who ask questions on their LJs you'd have thought that inquisitive or questioning would be one of the default moods. Unless it's just the icon set I'm using?

There isn't one for apologetic either - and the reason I'm saying all this is to apologise for the current colours on this community, and to ask any who read this (currently standing at two, including me :)) to come up with some better colours. The colours currently used are contained in a stylesheet, which I will replace with any suggestion that you lot (or not-a-lot) come up with.
