Die Antwoord
Saw them last year and they were awesome, pretty much on a level with The Prodigy (although the massive drugs may have helped).

Saw them this year at Brixton Academy and they were shit. They had a ‘support act’ which consisted of a bad DJ and two bad rappers, which I suspect was really some sort of postmodern hipster joke intended to point out that what Die Antwoord do does require talent and effort, but the joke went on far too lIng and was irritating as fuck.

Then when they finally came on after what seemed like Axl Rose levels of delay, the sound quality was all to cock (the bass was either not there at all or overpowering to the point you couldn't hear anything else - for an electronic, techno-styled band this means that the bass was basically going WHOOOOOMMM repeatedly at the tempo of the song), they didn't seem like they were arsed and they only played for about fifty minutes.

I always knew they were a novelty band with an inherently limited shelf-life, but it seems they've gone off quicker than I expected.
