I just saw them. It was good. But about 40% of the gig was Wigout. They have the art of wigging out down pat.
i had no money to go
some amazing wigouts
when the band go nuts and make loads of feedback and bang the drums and stuff.
never knew it was called wigging out
youd wig out
I have been in training.
there's a fair biit of it on the new album. They're not coming to see us though, so I'll just be Wigging Out in my living room.
24 hour wigout. thatd be cool.
listened to the new one, then the old ones, then the 1st one again, then the new one another twice yesterday, and again in the bath this morning.
I'm, like, totally Wigged Out!
the first-ever not entirely positive review on my blog:
I feel really bad about this because 'The Decline Of...' is still one of my favourite things, but the truth about 'Do You Like Rock Music?' must be heard.
Its not bad, but its not special to me.
I've tried with the new album but I just find it a little flat. The production is awful, too.
This is pretty good as far as missing something goes: http://music.guardian.co.uk/pop/reviews/story/0,,2239874,00.html
I meant it is the first negative review I have given something on my blog, you silly goose.
I just wanted to put that on here somewhere. It's especially silly as another reviewer gives it five stars and album of the month awards in today's OMM.
I got the impression everyone at the Guardian HQ was salivating all over it. It seems like the type of album they would really like because its unchallenging but obviously intelligent.
You're a moron.
a) Her name is a Big Black song
b) She is right about 'Do You Like Rock Music?'
1/ I'm not familiar (err, sorry?)
2/ I disagree!
Is it good or bad to sound like the Arcade Fire? She does make some good points though (e.g. Canvey Island is eminently skippable). I haven't heard 'The Decline Of...' so I never had much expectation for them as particularly experimental - but their pop sensibilities are occasionally, joyously life-affirming.
A smile never left my face the entire gig. And opening with Waving Flags/Great Skua was a stroke of genius.
Oh, and the end was something special. You say "wigging out" like it's a bad thing, it really really wasn't.
Just loved every second of it.
most of my mates think Do You Like.... sucks, even diehard BSP fans. And the Kitty Empire review is spot on, they are trying so hard to act weird and eccentric because their music is not up to standard
i consider myself a bit of a die hard and quiet of few of my friends also and we all think DYLRM? is brilliant. Ok, its not decline, but thats not the point
as for wigouts - they definately have cracked it. I last saw them in September last year and they played Pelican (wigout #1) into True Adventures (wigout #2) and then ended on Atom/Rock In A (wigout#3). They only played like 10 songs but it went on for a while...
bring on koko - hopefully the sound wont suck
never in my life have I seen such a bunch of motionless zombie cunts.
but the band could have done something to stir them up right?
no onstage banter AT ALL.
saying that i thouroughly enjoyed myself and the wigouts WERE GOOD.
It could have been bad but at least the band saw the funny side.
i will wear my wigging out trousers
