Again I had the
opportunity to make a live-at-stage series of this beautiful and charismatic artist.
I can't recall any female artist on the Danish Rock Scene (except for Freya
and Pernille Rosendahl) with a similar beauty combined with that
Maya Albana has a unique ability for writing angry,
powerfull punk-like songs and performing them in a very sweet and feminine way!
She is so visual on stage, being a dream for a photographer.
We got a surprisingly
brief set of songs this night. She did all the songs from the God Bless
Education album, except for Struck With Me, which was actually
on the set list, but omitted for some unknown reason. In fact there were two slightly
different set lists, but both of them having Struck With Me as the
opening song. We got one new unrecorded song, Hell Raising and two
cover-songs as an encore. Also this time Maya gave the naughty and
maybe therefore unreleased Pig.
What I really miss is to hear
live versions of songs from one of the best Danish albums relased within the last
ten years: Maya Albana's first album. Why is Common Breed,
Tripping On the Rainbows or Spell Out The Truth not
included on the set list? This very album is the most overseen release ever in
Denmark. Buy it if you are lucky to find it somewhere.
was not much light in Rust that evening, so I had to erase a lot
of god, but out-of-focused pics. Below you can view what was left.
