For part two, I list three more bands I caught in SXSW that were brilliant
Foals - Never heard of these guys, but caught them in a very small show (about 20 people). Tremendously loud live, I can seriously see them going far
iLiKETRAiNS - I loved their mini album, and was hoping that they would live up to that live. They were better, superbly brooding and menancing.
Gruff Rhys - A great set by a supremely talented musician. Made full use of a bizarre array of items he had for his set, particularly during one track where he sampled item after item and mashed them all togther to create one fantasic wall of noise - amazing
