The best British dance band since Hot Chip.
but for straight up dancin' fun I'm inclined to agree
saw em live in 2006 i think
there so fun i would reccomend seeing them live def
yeah i saw em back in 06 and i cant beleive theyr not as big as hot chip yet. your right jesus bout not enough soul tho... i went to see them tonight with my mate and he didnt like them at all. i couldnt beleive it. whats not to like? theyr flippin awesome.
today while painting a fence, their melodies are unmatched...Some seriously good shit, they were cool live as well.
with the Klaxons supporting!
I thought they were great, they remind me of Devo, which is never a bad thing.
I am very excited about the new album, especially hearing the studio version of Heartbreaker.
and didn't think much of it but last night I watched a 120 Minutes I'd recorded and their new song was on it (Holiday I think it's called). Sounded good and now I'd be interested to hear more. Does this mean I'm a 'nu-raver' now?
Definitely, definitely not.
An awful lot.
playing at offset festival with gang of four, radioclit, wire, maccabees etc
but, a bit art schooolish...
i dont know..just seems like they have thought very hard about what 'cool' image they want to achieve.
nice guys though and a few very good songs.
radioladio = head to toe in american apparel? they have definatly thought about that...
it makes them lazy. However, a couple of bits from Urban Outfitters...the odd accessory from Uni-Qlo, a nice shirt that would match the background colours of the video from their mate who runs that vintage shop in Paris = They thought about it.
they are nice and nice music.
i take it all back.
aren't 'your twenties' an offshoot of this group?
Now there's a band! Their first track on myspace is awesome
Or have i misunderstood the term 'ilk'?
(I can't stand Crystal Castles either, and am a huge Late of the Pier fan, but i don't see the point you're trying to make here!)
they always use live drums and bass, and the singer plays guitar for 90% of their set. And he's actually quite good, not just strumming some open chords and that.
I think they are great.
Crystal Castles less so. Some of the album i don't mind. Live they are pretty gash.
they seemed overly worried about the image, loooook robot dance, fuck off and produce something decent, one song stood out which i can't remember but yeah seemed like a crap 80s band whose dad stuck garden lamps on them because they wanted to be different
fuck off and die, and i thought ppl on DiS had better taste than this pilth!
ever thought your opinion might not be the right one? ;)
Less of that, i'll stop now, we all know everyone's entitled to an opinion blah di blah etc etc.
Personally I think they put on a fantastic show. So what if they choreograph dances for their live shows?
If you listen to their album without thinking about the 'image' then you'll probably be pleasantly surprised at how 'decent' they sound, considering they only play two or three songs from their album in their live sets anyway. At least when i last saw them.
So instead of shouting your mouth off with "fuck off and die" how about you "fuck off and actually listen to their music."
Ooooh, good comeback.
since 2006 (yes you are arguing with a bit of a fan here) - they have NEVER been concerned with their image or appeared 'overly worried' to me.
I don't know, ever thought that it was about having fun?
i think it's just that you maybe got into the bands around the same sort of time or something, because i've done that before too - but realistically they're nothing alike.
video is great.
they seem like thoroughly nice chaps.
