  • Greg Grunke reviews the Festive Meltdown - Dec 20, 2003 - Los Angeles

    F Space absolutely killed! Got to the show about 11:30 pm and heard the
    last part of Los Creepers energetic set. Catchy, punky rockrockrock! Long
    gap then Spindrift. Maybe the less than stellar acoustics of the warehouse
    space (or my beer consumption) blunted a bunch of subtle nuances but their
    long noodling instrumentals didn't do much for me except for one sloooow and
    dreamy Ventures cover. Extra points for the gals in fringe vests and
    Indian headdresses shaking tambourines on stage though.

    Jet Fuel up next and made even less of an impression. Side note to Mr.
    Fuhrmann: The entire East Los Latina art-babe contingent was out in full
    force. Pollyanne Hornbeck sez "hi".

    Then F Space threw it into drive and nobody knew what hit 'em! Scott
    Jenerik, playing his various percussion contraptions, and drummer Aleph Kali
    established a complete rhythm lock pounding out patterns of amazing
    intricacy and intensity while Ethan added snaky melodies and sheets of
    texture with his guitar armada. The hall had too much flammable stuff for
    them to go totally apeshit with the pyrotechnics but Scott did fire up one
    of his smaller devices that shot out bursts of propane flame as it was
    played kinda like the time Granny's stove exploded. All this at a volume
    level that at times made early Swans sound like Raffi and sent the
    lightweights heading for the hills. Overall a stunning display of sonic
    ferocity and beauty the likes of which L.A. hasn't seen in quite a spell.

    Special thanks to Jason Heath for putting on such a swell party!

  • Sep 2, 2003: F-SPACE complete 2003 Black Rock City Tour
    F-SPACE completed 8 ground shattering performances at Burning Man 2003. Scot Jenerik and Ethan Port performed as a two piece playing through a mobile rig, blasting fire and pummeling soaring psychedelic "crunch" at random locations around the Playa. Two especially memorable shows were Friday night at 2am in front of the Man, and midnight Sunday inside the Thunderdome. Documentation of these shows will be available shortly for free download.


    "I was a firsttimer at the Burning Man festival this year. A complete mindset it was for me. I thought we are in Holland liberal and open-minded but what i saw here i
    never experienced in my life.

    The real 'Hammer' was the F-space gig @ the Thunderdome at sundaynight.
    Fucking unbelieveble, i was nailed to the desert.

    For seventeen years i do programming and party planning for several venues
    and streetfestivals.
    I really would like to introduce F-Space in the Dutch music scene."
