An evening full of music

Tonight I was at the boerderij in Zoetermeer to see ABC. The Lexicon Of Love is still a great debut album I listen to now and then. the band had attracked a sold out venue.

The support Model Depose, from Groningen, opened the evening with an half hour set featuring songs from their debut album Splitting Light. A great album featuring an 80s mix of sounds from bands like Ultravox, This Mortal Coil and a male vocalist which is a crossover of Mark Almond and Alison Moyet. I bought the album straight after the show and listened to it in car on the way back home.


ABC turned out to be a trip down memorylane, Although the band played some new songs from the earlier this year released  Lexicon Of Love Part II. Somehow the new songs fitted in much better than listening to them on the new studio album. The sound was superb and so tight, and Martin Fry's vocals are still so strong and recognizable, This for sure was one of the best concerts I visited this year.
