i know nobody on here likes them, but tonight, they were fucking incredible.
i am honestly gobsmacked that this band can have any fans at all.
I can understand why people like them.
Personally I think they're shit, but y'know.
beyond either a) fancying them or b) never actually hearing any bands from before 2004.
Because it's simple, catchy, 'edgy', and appeals to people who use phrases like 'Empire!'.
Which is alot of people.
and i'd consider people who enjoy the 'Empire' phrase element to just fancy them, frankly. it's got nothing to do with their music.
i think i've overestimated humanity yet again.
I saw them at Reading a couple of years ago and was pretty impressed. They're not my kind of thing at all, but I can appreciate that musically they are more than able to put on a performance
they are cocky cunts, i resent them for their oasis like attitude, but live they just 'have' it imo!
No they weren't.
the hours opened
the enemy supported (WANK)
they opened with 'shoot the runner'
finished with 'LSF'
its not the greatest venue ever, but tonight it was ok!
