Pitchshifter – Dublin 1991

October November 1991Oct 31 1991 Pitchshifter, Golden Horde NCAD
Oct 31 1991 Pitch Shifter, Jam Jar Jail, Dust Revolution – Fox + Pheasant

Pitchshifter from Nottingham asked through their friend Stuart if they could come over . It was Hallowe’en and we managed to get them a gig at the NCAD hallowe’en ball as well as one in the Fox.2 gigs in the one evening would help pay their ferry fare. They arrived at the Fox complete with TV screen and video. This portrayed some  disturbing images throughout their set. A precursor to U2’s Zoo TV!

Unfortunately for the band, the art students of NCAD must have wanted to watch MTV and they broke the TVscreen that evening. Maybe it was some sort of art statement. Understandably Pitchshifter were very annoyed. Also playing in the Fox that evening were Dust Revolution. None of us knew anything about the band beforehand. Shane from Jam Jar Jail asked if they could play. He knew the band. They didn’t get too many gigs as they were on day release from Grangegorman mental institution. After their set they went around the audience almost individually looking for feedback. For that night they were stars in their eyes.
