scala - 14th July. awooga!
They were shit. They speeded up all their songs so they sounded like pop punk and they couldn't really sing. It has kind of spoiled their albums for me.
i was at said gig and thought the dual vocals were fine. may not be the best sound in the 229 school hall. but i enjoyed it nonetheless.
I was at that gig too, and I didn't think they were awful, but they can't really reproduce that fastidiously crafted sound that they have on record when they're playing live. For many bands that wouldn't be a problem, but I think for Pinback the way the arrangements fit together are a key part of their appeal.
...or at least I thought so anyway. I think it probably benefited from being in a smaller venue.
when I'm holiday why don't you. THANKS.
Plus Leeds the following day.
