I just spyed this on the deerhunter blog.
most probibly worth a listen.
I will put it on tomorow me thinks
and let me make lots of nosie on it durring the encore of a deerhunter gig it was a bit special for me as I had been goin on his blog and listing to all sorts of his stuff for ages.
I could've meated the bassist who I think is also intense, as well as insanely cool, but I have a general rule that meeting people you love is bad and ruins the romance of it all. Same goes for Kevin Barnes... he was in the same bar as me and I could've gushed to him but I didn't wanna ruin everything I hold dear by doing so.
Again: AMAZING ON THE COX FRONT. He's a fabulous brilliant man and probably one of the finest musicians of our generation. Unrecognised now, but soon.
he is brilliant, I wasn't to fussed as it was pretty much durring the gig and not just randomly in the audiance or anything like that.
But then even though I love the dude so much I think I could hold back with my fan boyness and just have a chat if it came to it.
... I did try and play the doctor who theme on his guitar though but he had put it thruogh lots of peddles and stuff so what ever you did sounded good, and you couln't heard what the hell you were playing.
You were confronted with Bradford's array of pedals, and what do you think to play? A TV theme tune. I genuinely admire your cool-headedness in such a situation.
been comfronted with The Mae Shi
who invited us on stage and gave me a bass guitar, an instrument I had no idea how to use.
So I was use to being thrust instruments in loud environments heheheh
Try playing a gig, but turn up with no instruments and a very.fast.car. Get proffered said instruments, steal them and drive away in said very.fast.car.
oh man you crack me up
I only have a skoda!
but I'm pretty sure that will beat most indie bands in speed!
I would love to do that idea, imagain turning up at a gig with no instruments and just wingin it... that would be ace. I think I wouyld pack a bag of 12" and some CD's just to get on the decks just incase though.
That's actually quite a good idea for some kind of avant-garde noise shit; turn up and borrow whatever the hell you can, and play your songs that way. It'd probably get a nod in the Observer Music Monthly, and if you did a record that way it'd be top of The Wire's end-of-year list.
and the observer must be a peace of piss!
I mean really WHAT AGE DO WE LIVE IN!
I might zip it upload it...
Zipped thats why!
