I have my dancing shoes on!
will you be dancin too?
I want to go. Even moreso now I know stu is going.
I really miss DiS. Wish I could spend more time here. ;-(
they're by the door waiting for later.
Can't. Fucking. Wait.
has the second singer properly left now? will be weird with just the one
I am sure it will be amazing with just one singer.
The other two times I've seen them they've been incredible. But I really can't see this happening in Koko
I don't want to soil it :(
Gigs at Koko are almost always a let down (except for Broken Social Scene)
i'mn getting there early so that a) can be sure of seeing holy fuck and b) can get reasonably drunk before !!! come on, which only makes them even better :D
expensive, and slow to boot.
still - !!! (you can't really put exclamation marks after there name to show excitement can you?)
Perhaps we'll stand near each other again and not speak? I'm getting aroused just thinking about it
i'll try not to stand *too* near you then!
nah if i see you i will surely say hello. t'will be good, regardless of venue.
but the last time i saw them it was just the lead singer and a black lady. still amazing mind.
they were the best thing about reading, the 2nd time I saw them, they are great sober but if you pop an E it's out of this world!
however at Glasto we managed to get free some funky glasses, similar to 3D ones except they added multi-coloured stars on a lot of objects which came in super handy for their Glade' set. a highlight for sure.
was fucking amazing. I lost all my friends and I didn't care.
Sorta would like to go tonight but Saul williams is 2 mins from my flat = winner.
i went to without my friends, and a lot of them were highlights fo' sho'
eg !!! both times, Holy Fuck, Mr Scruff, Los Campesinos, Coldcut etc
thinking back to it.
we actually gave the second singer (who now according to this thread has left!?) a pair of these glasses when he made his trip from the stage to the sound desk to climb the central pole, he then wore them for the last few songs (Y)
i just remember reading somewhere that he was quitting to concentrate on some (previously) side-project. whether he is still with them for this tour i dunno
that Glade set was awesome.
thanks to sarky:
midnight juggernaut 19.50 - 20.20
holy fuck 20.40 - 21.10
!!! 21.40 - 23.00
do you know what midnight juggernaut are like?
they have a myspace tho...
i try to avoid myspace as much as possible, for the sake of my retinas
!!! on top form.
Bend Over Beethoven = WOW
the lead singer guy started to annoy me a bit by the end, but overall they were great.
The supports were great too!
Even though Midnight Juggernauts were scarily 70s prog/bowie-ish. I'm just wondering where I heard "into the galaxy" before
awesome live band
for about 1/3 of it
same for Reading
did Nic say thaey were only going to play one more gig ever? Or just on that tour?
apparently they hadn't arrived by 18.45.....
and were very good
and most excellent they were too!
