...this is a little inconvenient i would have thought...
...but given there's nothing on their website, not even on the messageboard which is populated with people who would find this stuff out quickly, I can't help thinking this might be another of their 'japes'...
In other science news, scientists give elephants acid:
I'm really annoyed that they've been advertising this trip as their "UK tour", when it seems that they are actually supporting the Kaiser Chefs on a lot of the dates (including London). I've been waiting to see W.A.S live again for about 18 months, but I'm not paying £20+ to see them just because they happen to be supporting Britain's most boring band.
and i dont think thats on the list. I think they just announced these extra dates to extend the tour.
On the drummer front i think he could have left, i saw a video for their self improvement programme and hes not on it.
Finally, i LOVE this band.
One experiment in the 1960s saw 10 soldiers board an aircraft for what they believed was a routine training mission from Fort Hunter Liggett airbase in California. After climbing to around 5,000 feet the plane suddenly lurched to one side and began to fall. Over the intercom, the pilot announced: "We have an emergency. An engine has stalled and the landing gear is not functioning. I'm going to attempt to ditch in the ocean."
While the soldiers faced almost certain death, a steward handed out insurance forms and asked the men to complete them, explaining it was necessary for the army to be covered if they died.
Little did the soldiers know they were completely safe. It was merely an experiment to find out how extreme stress affects cognitive ability, the forms serving as the test. Once the final soldier had completed his form the pilot announced: "Just kidding about that emergency folks!"
It's not ULU. It's Earls Court, and they're supporting the Kaiser Chefs.
but look at this
"As previously reported, at some dates the band will support themselves, offering self-improvement seminars to fans."
Theyre doing that at glasgow. I dont listen to them but being at their show was great last time. I might see if i can get a ticket for this, it sounds hilarious.
theyre not doing that at my uni.
