Conjure One are coming over to London to play their first UK show!!!!

This was greeted by a audible 'yay' from my Quarters as I've been wanting to see Conjure One for AGES! I was even contemplating going and seeing them in Europe or the States.

Unfortunately they will be playing Slimelight on November 11th. Now despite my innate dislike for the Slimelight I actually don't think it is the right venue for them to play. It's not entirely the right crowd.

I know Conjure One are a Front Line Assembly/Delerium side-project but there music appeals to a lot wider audience whom just aren't going to go to Slimelight to see them. Plus I think they might be a bit too middle-of-the-road, chilled out and soft for the Slimelight crowd. Conjure One are certainly not the type of band I'd expect to hear at Slimelight - or most clubs of similiar ilk.

Anyway, I'll definitely be going but I hope they either add some more UK dates or aren't put off from ever touring here again after playing Slimelight!

They should come and play at autonomy_uk in Leicester.

We.Accept.Everybody and everythink.

Either that or Darkscape, at the same venue. :)

Just been chatting to Rhys (Conjure One) and there might be a date in Nottingham being added. If so I will probably be heading up that way to see them.

It sounds like they're just looking for a couple of dates as a taster at present. After talking to him it also sounds like he knows that the Slimelight isn't the ideal venue for most of their fans so I don't think that will deter them from returning to these shores if they don't get a large turn-out there.

Ok, I'm game :)

They have some amazing tracks but I still think they're too 'light' for most industrial/ebm clubs. Mind you, that doesn't stop some places playing Delerium's "Silence"...

How did they go down? And did you play an original track or one of their remixes?

The majority of Conjure One tracks seem too light for the Sliemlight. Although admittedly listening to some of the so-called EBM stuff recently has reminded me quite heavily of pop music and in one case even a boy band!
