May go and see em tonight, anyone a fan?
One of those bands who are definitely better live than they are on record, just comes together much better.
so much so I went to see them a second time in Manchester as well
- and they were even better
They have so much energy, it was a really storming set
You must go!
if i prefer them live as the albums bloody amazing.
still a very good live band
is actually because at the time the album was released I was still new to the whole idea of polyrhythmic music. Now having totally saturated myself in everything from Cap'n Jazz to Maps & Atlases, my ear is more tuned to the sound.
tour is still going on, but well worth seeing.
...they're one of those bands that are better live than recorded
yes. Especially when they're playing with Adam Gnade.
Make sure you get the joint EP with him, too. And the new one.
I seem to remember people only having "meh" things to say about them live about 6 months ago. What has changed?
probably haven't seen them live (because of said meh feeling) and aren't really in a position to answer the question is what i'd guess.
definitely see them live, if you enjoy them even a tiny bit on record it is worth it. hell, even if you're on the fence.
seen them 10+ times, always way better than just good.
i played with them, and my massive thought was an overwhelming "meh"
nothing special at all, certainly no energy in the slightest as ppl seem to be saying!
HOWEVER! this was maybe a year ago, and im sure everyoine here isnt a fool and isnt lying, so im willing to believe they have improved lots. it would have to be a hell of a lot though..
i also remember being distinctly impressed at how the singer could jump around so much without once tripping, and there were loads of wires :o
even better live. Their Oxford gig was top, and the set with Adam Gnade was cute.
Did you go then Funkster?
last night was boss! Was better than the korova show earlier in the year! Crowd was kinda quiet but into it, and i got the soplit 12" w/redjetson from back in the day for £2 and the new ep to!
