quite like them if it wasn't for you promoting them so much.
....anyone at the festival? It doesnt look too populated.
Their performance at supersonic fest on friday was both stupidly packed and incredible.
spread around 3 stages
and they really didn't float my boat, what annoyed me was there was potential there to be great, I stood there waiting for it to get really good and it just didn't... so will keep an eye on them for the future but right now, not so...
i was the besuited bespectacled drunkard headbanging to cutting pink, I suppose I had very high expectations based on what people have said here but, and this may have been bad sound, their set fell flat because it wasn't as noisy, heavy or experimental as I'd hoped. Having said that you should really put them forward for the next Bleepfest when that happens (think there's London/Paris ones being sorted), think they'd go down well with the IDM crowd.
people's general response to them. I honestly think they are the most exciting new band going at the minute, with a cathartic and transformative capability that comes from an incredibly sound and self-aware approach. That's what attracts me to Napoleon IIIrd as well - this will to put down something that engenders an entire set of ideas in sound. Boney3 uses words too obviously - Fuck Buttons are all about channeling in my view... and they channel and amplify a beautiful, heartfelt kind of positivity.
quite so poetically, but I agree with this. FBs are easily the best new band I've seen in a long time.
Go get bent.
