Gig of the year so far for me.
i knew you'd say that.
God I can't wait
but it might be the Stella talking (or the fact that i saw The Teenagers the night before - worst gig of the year)
in berlin next week. EXCITING!
These are good. Fookin can't wait til tonight!
awesome. definately one of my fav gigs of the year so far. what was that last song they finished with? it was a beast
Every one of my friends who went were severely underwhelmed. To put it mildly.
that guy was standing a couple of rows behind me. What a moron.
I demand answers!
...Somewhat disappointing compared to expectations – the motorik groove failed to materialise to any great extent and they looked (bunch of lads hunched around each other with few vocals) and sounded more like Battles than Neu!. Still pretty enjoyable but not the world-beaters I had hopes for."
Other mates actively hated it, but really liked the barmaid.
I'm going to see them, um.. now.
accurate review really. There were times that they were spectacular (the last track and another new one as well) but the album tracks bored me a little and they took a while to get going. They seemed much more animated when I saw them before (in 2006) too. Still definitely worth seeing though (this is from the Norwich gig)
I thought they were good, but not amazing, and was expecting an immense groove/wall of sound to develop, but it never really happened. It reminded me of Battles at the same venue (Bham Barfly) about a year ago, which I didn't quite get but then loved the next time I saw them...so, I look forward to seeing them again!
They've definitely not played it when I've seen them previously.
definately gotta be a newie
they're opening for Blonde Redhead at Shepherds Bush!
*does a zoidberg style woob woob thing and runs around in a circle*
but they WERE fucking great on Wed night. I've just come back from taking in two gigs in two days (WAS) and both of them are the best I've ever been to.
