Great interview with Rodney in Electrospank magazine this month – go check it out!
The newly remastered version of our classic first album Grenade is out now on all of the usual streaming services. Go have a listen – we think Rodney did a great job producing this, it sounds amazing!
Lots of people have been asking for CX merchandise… and now we have it!
Our brand new merchandise store is now open, with lots of things to choose from – not just shirts, but mugs, mouse pads, phone cases, and everything else your little black heart craves…
Note that all of the shirts in our online store are organic cotton – this makes them a little bit more expensive than normal, but is much better for our environment. We think it’s worth it.
If you want to support our work, this is a great way to do it. Feel free to stream our music for free, but please buy our merch! 😎
We will be headlining the first day of the Bimfest Festival in St. Niklaas, Belgium on December 13. Early bird tickets are on sale now!
The Cassandra Complex – Boots & Braces Theater Stage (LAy)
No doubt, one of Amphi’s gems was offered inside the theatre when legendary CASSANDRA COMPLEX from the UK hit the stage. The band around singer Rodney Orpheus produced their first album ‘Grenade’ in 1986. Since the 2000 album ‘Wetware’ there has been no new material, nevertheless, there are blissful smiles on people’s faces whenever they get the chance to see such iconic and influential artist. No wonder that Mr. Orpheus, Andy Booth (guitar) and Volker Zacharias (bass) and “button pusher” Axel Ermes played to a full house starting with the darkly war song ‘Nightfall.’ The sound was stellar all through the gig.
Funnily enough, there was a “technical problem” during the song ‘Datakill.’ Rodney seemed to have accidentally unplugged his bandmates’ instruments. CC and their fans were very well-spirited and of course no one minded having them perform the piece once again from the start. When ‘The War Against Sleep’ and one of their very first singles, ‘Moscow Idaho,’ resounded, the audience lost it dancing and jumping wildly to the fast-pasted song. ‘One Millionth Happy Customer’ marked the end of an entertaining “Post-Punk Industrial Electronic Rock” show.
// Setlist: 01. Nightfall / 02. Too Stupid To Sin / 03. Valis / 04. Second Shot / 05. Motherad / 06. What Can I Do For You? / 07. The War Against Sleep / 08. Datakill / 09. Moscow Idaho / 10. One Millionth Happy Customer
