Sound Quality matters

Placebo are one of our favourite bands and we were really looking forward to seeing them in concert last night. Their tracks are guaranteed to get us on the dancefloor and we have most of their albums. They're brilliant musicians and lead singer Brian Molko has an anazing voice. So to say we were disappointed by the appallingly bad sound quality at Edinburgh Corn Exchange is an understatement indeed.

The band played a great selection of songs but it all just sounded like noise much of the time.

This wasn't some local band playing in a basement bar which isn't set up for gigs and where good sound quality is a bonus if you can get it. This is a major band, excellent musicians with a very distinctive sound in a venue that likes to think it's one of the best in Scotland.

So Edinburgh Corn Exchange, what are you going to do? Can I suggest sacking the sound engineers?
