Seriously, what's all the love on this place for them all about? Total wankfest.
I am going to stalk them at latitude, and stroke their hair.
Listen to them an imagine anyone else being able to do it. No? Therein lie thier genius.
2nd to 'where to start with the Fall' Fair play to the line up they picked at ATP a few years back but seriosuly truly of the worst live 'performances' in this users gig going memory.
because the musicianship is tighter than a cat's asshole. I admit that, in more recent tours, it's not been so *enjoyable* to watch them for parts of the set, but that doesn't steal from their capabilities as a group
Records have remained amazing though, and nothing can touch Deloused.
but musically, on stage, they are fucking TIGHT musically.
debating their claims that they gave a bad performance. Entertainment wise, perhaps so; musical capability wise? Negative, captain.
the somethingawful reviews? I don't mind the mars volta but they're pretty funny
"Oh god, a fucking bass solo. Is that Flea? Get the hell out of my stereo, Flea, you are uninvited"
obviously it is incorrect though, the ars volta are incredible
wankfest is right. AWFUL, AWFUL, AWFUL. Go listen to Tonight's The Night.
in march, was one of the best gigs ive ever witnessed!
That and the Hot Snakes of course!
As was the Frances The Mute tour, to be fair
it was better than recent shows but they were still amazing to watch in march. i thought they were better than when i saw them on the frances tour though, so for me they are getting better again
