So their live set is almost like a mixtape, with no gaps... I think it'd be really interesting
they just keep going and going without gaps and bring sections in and out of songs. Some of them didn't do it everytime though.
not sure of the exact time frame, it was just before Bluberry Boat came out, and they played elements from the really long songs inbetween other songs, Quay Cur started the set, was continued towards the middle and they finally ended it as the closer, the music didn't stop until they left the stage. It was immense.
No idea what they are like these days, never saw them since then.
Here's a wonderfully complex setlist that sums up what they were like: http://tinyurl.com/a5fcdp
The Remember double live album from last year is quite similar though a bit too much at points. All their albums actually, including Matthew Friedberger's solo double album, are quite well spliced together. As are most of their live shows.
Greatest band of the decade.
which is great fun
and when I saw !!! they did it on a few tracks
and even though there was someone operating a laptop there was someone at the very least on drums and bass at all times. I think there might of been one or two gaps between songs in a 45 minute set. It was immense.
Do you prefer nite versions?
was going to say, Soulwax do the non-stop thing usually. Cut Copy sort of do it these days too, but in the early days they didn't.
soon as i saw th thread title. brilliant it was too. 2004 on the franz f first album tour, amazing that it doesn't happen more but a swine to get right i'm sure.
now their songs just never end :(
play non-stop, the first time I saw them it was amazing.
Prob my favourite gig of last year.
Shitdisco used to...
to the point even when the vocalist left the stage to find a new stool they didnt stop playing
We pieced together loads of different songs to make an 18 minute track which we later released.
To my memory did when i saw them, well maybe one break.
