Emilie Autumn - O2 Shepherd's Bush Empire, London September 13th 2013 Live Review


It was an agonising six-year wait for 'Fight Like A Girl'; the spectacular third album from Victorian-industrial singer and violinist Emilie Autumn; but I'm sure all Plague Rats (fans) will agree that it was utterly worth it. Myself, I've only been immersed in the world of The Asylum for two and a half years but, having completely falling in love with the new record, I felt that I couldn't miss a chance to see this new musical journey on stage before my very eyes.

Emilie Autumn  - O2 Shepherd's Bush Empire, London September 13th 2013 Live Review

And so I travelled to London where I stood in the rain for a good 40 minutes, my perfectly styled hair totally destroyed, outside the Shepherd's Bush Empire waiting to take my level one balcony seat for what I knew would be one hell of a show. Chamber music and World War I ditties were played as we waited for the queen of crazy to appear on the stage in her pink corset and large Mohican hair piece (the latter only stayed there for the first song). She opened the set with an energetic rendition of her album's title single, waving her F.L.A.G. flag over the heads of the standing crowd. It's probably the most distinctive track of the album - it's a lot more industrial and electronic than the others which would not sound out of place in a musical, and truly kicks the show off with a bang as she gracefully climbs and swings on the scaffolding apparatus in the middle of the stage. Her performances of 'Take The Pill' and 'Time For Tea' - possibly the heaviest of the entire set - were wonderfully dramatic, as her occasional backing singers Veronica Varlow and Captain Maggots (who make up The Bloody Crumpets) restrained her arms with bandages as Emilie flailed about in anguish. An exquisite actress, who held the entire Empire's rapt attention.
