watched them at glasto, pretty ace huh?
i sky+'d the glastonbury highlights and a quick scan didn't reveal any national, and i couldnt find anything on the bbc site last night.
ninety minutes of magic.
Saw them at werchter and they were brilliant. Crowd were really loving it as well.
this is not wrong
awaiting diver's subbing. absolutely blown away again on friday at wireless.
we all need a bit of indie rock in our lives, and it should definatly sounds like this
they are just bland run of the mill indie rock I can't see the appeal.
they aint a band you can dislike just can't love them either. Just incredibly middle of the road, for me anyway. A band I could see myself enjoying when I'm a middle age dad with kids, but I can wait until then to enjoy them hehe
I don't think you have a soul.
my souls alright thanx.
Really don't get them, a few of my friends swear by them and I have given their records a good listen but nothing. There are lots of bands I don't like but I can see why others do like them but with The National I still can't find it.
Each to their own though.
shouldn't you be off listening to some TOTALLY EDGY LIKE WOAH music instead of posting in here, then?
i concour, nothing groundbreakingly different. just good tunes, not often that happens...
with you on the Sunday night.
Easily the best band i saw throughout that weekend.
dear everyone who has ever seen the National live: I HATE YOU, I HATE THE FACT I'M TOO DISORGANISED TO HAVE EVER GOT TICKETS AND I'M JEALOUS BEYOND BELIEF. there, you made me use caps, happy now?
I've only seen them 3 times so far (4 on Saturday at TITP) and they were only great 2 of those 3, and amazing on the other occasion
at the EITS ATP. They completely owned that big stage and the atmosphere was amazing. Amazed they're not more popular to be honest, although expect them to move onto another level in the next year or so.
you've started to go up in my estimation. You're only at 'severe dislike' level now.
Shame no one was there to see it. Broke my heart seeing that half full tent.
Guy Garvey of Elbow was watching it. He seemed impressed
it's what his shitty, boring little band have always tried and failed to sound like.
clashed with My Morning Jacket at Glastonbury, which was clearly Eavis SPITE.
