that you have experienced?
how has a band best communicated to its audience from your own experience?
(During an extended into to The End of Radio.)
Woman in audience: Play the song!
Albini: This is the song, cunthole.
if people gave examples!
"so this songs abour rape. It's about this kid from hereford who raped loads of little girls."
I need banter coaching i think.
although I can't remember exactly what was said. But it was all GOLD.
black rebel motorcycle club show:
person in the crowd: "HANNAH MONTANA!"
Peter Hayes: "I don't know any of those songs..."
person on crowd: "All right!"
another person: "SPOONER STREET!"
Peter Hayes: "Actually, these are all Hannah Montana covers."
Silverchair geezer: "hey is this the Reading festival ? because i cant see any books
Art Brut / Eddie Argos.
Best bantering onstage of any band. Eddie Argos truly knows how to talk to a crowd and make them laugh.
Comes on the stage to a crowd of about 20 people and shouts
"Do you know where you are?"
"You're in the jungle and you're gonna die"
Wonderfully ridiculous. Also in a more recent show "If Jay Zed came up to me and said i've got 99 problems but a bitch ain't one. I would say Mr Zed 'I don't appreciate the misogynistic language but I approve of the sentiment' "
Person: C'monnnnnnn (bit unnecessarily)
Falco: You in a hurry mate? You need to get home? You taped Sex In The City, you fuck.
It was well funny.
he swore and everything
"Now I'm going to play Rusted Gun of Milan IN FRONT OF MY DAD!, that's so embarrassing!"
And more greatness which I've got recorded. I love them so much.
because it sounds really familiar. Unless Eddie is recycling his speeches.
i heard "If Jay Zed came up to me and said i've got 99 problems but a bitch ain't one. I would say 'Mr Zed I don't appreciate the misogynistic language but I approve of the sentiment'" when i saw them in glasgow once
was very funny and engaging when i saw him last week.
That'd brighten things up a bit.
cause you don't expect them to be funny. At ATP last year there were a load of hecklers, steve albini was awesome:
todd trainer was also amazing, when then arsehole at the front kept heckling, he went up and beat the snare drum right next you his ear then started yelling at him to fuck off :)
(steve was wearing a jumpsuit on stage)
fan: "why did steve come in a jumpsuit?"
steve: "because i ran out of rubbers"
on the cap'n jazz discography, before one of the live songs, one of the band members introduces the song with "this is
a sucky song for our sucky singer".
