Has anyone seen them on the current tour yet?
5 days to go though! :D
i saw them in southampton
it was a really weird gig. they played pretty much exactly the same setlist as at Brixton, except with Jude Law and 70x7 substituted for new songs.
too much Deja and not enough Devil and God.
plus the crowd was full of 14 year olds. I wouldn't mind, but they were talking shit and taking myspace pictures (?!?) throughout the whole of Soco. just annoying.
brand new were on top form though and it was great to see You Won't Know and Jesus Christ played for the first time.
apparently they mixed up the setlist a lot for Manchester the other night
this is one gig where I will be happy whichever setlist they play.
although I'd like to hear Jude Law live I think. Considering Deja is the album I know best, I'd be pleased if they played a lot of it! :)
Shucks - I agree, I wouldn't mind seeing that live, actually.
ALthough the list is pretty large for songs I want them to play.
with Jude Law in Manchester apparently
to be honest.
Man, I'm actually really fussy.
DAMN YOU ;)
I think 'Soco...' will sound brilliant live, may even bring a tear to the eye. 'Degausser' and 'Not the Sun' would be nice to hear as well. (As well as 'Sic Transit' and 'Quiet Things', obv.)
The ones I wouldn't want to hear are a couple of the efforts from 'Your Favourite Weapon'.
I am currently listening to the albums in order.
last fm it's all you listen to matey! ;)
Yeah, 'Your Favourite Weapon' is possibly the weakest of the three.
A few weeks ago, I had to laugh when someone in the pub said he though 'Deja' sounded like lostprophets. Twat.
and now I have added reason too :)
I'll listen to some Mewithoutyou later aswell.
Haha, Lostprophets? How did anyone come to that conclusion, really?
they always seem to top your chart! It's like me and Some Girls.
I need to check out the Mewithoutyou stuff later. Only heard 1 track, 'January 1979' and that was bloody good.
I know...HOW?? I asked him this, and he mumbled something about the riffs and the 'feel' the album had. I just shook my head and turned away in disgust. I tried to see how he could have thought this, but no. Just no.
You should have said before, I'd have sent you some stuff by them.
The riffs? Nothing like LP. The 'feel'? It feels like an album from no other band. As soon as you hear it, you KNOW it's them. This is a good thing.
Deja has a brilliant distinctive sound. I hope I get sent home early, I want to listen to it now!
Seven, what did you think of them as support?
which i was a bit annoyed about
had a massive last minute problem with tickets and travel so arrived a bit late
they played a bit of a crap set in Southampton and then played this ridiculous one in Manchester where they started with five YFW songs, then played Deja in its entirety except for Good To Know, and then encored with six TDAG songs. Apparently they decided they want to mix it up every night from now on.
I can't wait for London, have a great time tonight and report back!
I'm going to end up taking notes or something?
and they were amazing! i really enjoyed the way they split the set into 3 sections, one for each album. worked really well. and the lights were fantasic!
this. devil and god... has grown on me so much. its stunning.
i agree with dalkin. this is one gig where i dont care about the setlist. i love it all. obviously there are some songs i'd really like them to play but i'll be happy whatever :D
After being told to expect Jude Law as opener, I did so, but was still surprised when it actually happened, with Jesse Lacey going solo and pretty much whispering the words, the crowd could be heard singing over the top of him. When the last line was ran through, the stage dropped into darkness at which time the rest of the band dawned the stage and burst into a hearty rendition of Seventy Times Seven.
I was a happy man already.
A few tracks from Your Favourite Weapon and the we were in the dark again as the sounds of Tautou filled our heads, everyone knew what was coming next and didn't have to wait long when the first notes to the sexy as fuck bassline from Sic Transit were projected towards us. We then got a treat, an entire rendition of Deja Entendu, minus one or two songs. All the songs that you would have wanted to hear from that record, you would have heard.
I'll be honest, as much as I enjoyed this, they did seem to rush through a few tracks, but hey, it's all about being in the moment, and if they are playing faster, then that's fair enough.
I was still happy.
Then came the The Devil And God Are Raging Inside Me section. This was not rushed. At all. It was perfect for the duration of the remaining time. Lacey's voice still strong. Sowing Season and Luca were highlights before finishing with You Won't Know with him on the stage on his own, just like he was at the beginning, but this time screaming the his written words, on his knees to the side of the stage. The crowd just waiting to show how much they adore him and his band. They got their wish a few seconds later.
about the same as the manchester gig, was good fun hey? there was a hell of a lot of singing along there too, often drowning out Jesse's vocals...
