should I go and see these then? I don't kno either band, but Islington Academy is just down the street from me. Maybe I will check this out.
I saw Pelican and they bored me silly, my girlfriend even managed to fall asleep standing upright, they got a bit better towards the end of the set but by then the damage had been done and I went away feeling really disappointed as I love their stuff on record.
i might give them another go tho.
I'll bow to your experience (but if this is the GF that didn't like Liars, like fuck am I taking her opinion seriously.)
yes it was
but i too was quite bored, but not to those levels. it didn't help that my mates band supported them and blew me away with 2 tracks and then were followed by Pelican and almost an hour of boredom before it picked up slightly.
"Unhindered by the impositions of the vocal yoke, Chicago instro-sorcerers Pelican transcend the limits of time and space to expound upon the stunning finesse and painstaking subtlety with which they command their already indelible sonic signature. Restoring instrumental composition to its former glory is no insignificant task, and to do so with such remarkable authority and presence is a testament to the sheer will and unmitigated talent of Pelican's membership. Levying cinematic melody upon glacial heaviness, they achieve the sort of inevitability usually reserved for weather systems and natural disasters."
that does sound boring.
yes, they will be.
