because that's what they did for 4 shows i looked up and the Edinburgh one i went to.
like it. I just don't know which new song is which.
When they did Roads I thought my head was going to explode!
they were pretty spectacular. My only quibble is that there should've been less new material on that setlist and more 'Humming', 'Strangers' and 'Biscuit'
I would've liked more from the s/t and less from Dummy, but that's it. The new stuff is my favourite, though, and was pretty amazing. The end of Threads was terrifying, as it seemed like Beth was virtually screaming! Maybe that was just me. She really did dominate everything last night (and I wish people wouldn't try and sing along with her, because most people's voices don't do those sorts of things).
that vocalists do it alot better than they do. Everyone in Edinburgh in my general viscinity was silent though.
Yeah, i'd def. have preferred more S/T stuff. I like the new stuff, but nowehere near as much as the old material. Perhaps this is as it's not familiar enough yet, but then that's another reason not to fill half your set with it.
General consensus is a definite thumbs up though - so glad i've finally seen them =)
(just in front of the bar slightly to the right) were standing open-mouthed in silence
Was it the Brixton show?
in that there seemed to be 2 or 3 groups of people around me who would try and sing along to the stuff from Dummy. :( That'll teach me to stand near the back.
I was around there too (as in right bar if you face the stage)... Getting pissed off with people talking during ALL the new songs ("won't you shut the fuck up, i'm just trying to watch the band")
It was a sweet gig though. The songs off Third sound even better live.
it's odd that they're playing these big gigs before the album's even released. I don't know what I'd have thought of all the new material if I hadn't heard a leak of the album first. I get the feeling that the band are still in a pre-internet mindset where you do the gigs to promote the album, rather than the other way around.
Really not keen on Hawk and a Hacksaw though. Was willing that set to end. Totally wrong venue for them.
just as much as Portishead, who I thought really started to drag towards the end despite a stunning first half-hour.
