I'm going to see Of Montreal on Monday in Glasgow and I was wondering if anyone has an idea of their recent setlists?
but i don't know if i wanna go alone.
Sorry, that's not helpful.
the fabchannel broadcast on weds from the Paradiso... can't remember it exactly but was mainly stuff from and Hissing Fauna and Skeletal Lamping (about 40:60 split).... they finished with a cover of Teen Spirit which was interesting. They also had crazy actors in costumes who 'acted out' each song which was preety cool... hope this helps!
Hopefully it will be good...
they played a couple off sunlandic twins, and the rest was split between skeletal lamping and hissing fauna (+smells like teen spirit), i've decided to never see them again always really disapointing they really need to sort their sound levels out
It seemed to be mostly Hissing Fauna, Couple off Sundalic and then a handful of Skeletal Lamping.... good set to dance to and the crowd at the Brighton gig reacted VERY well, their Smells Like Teen Spirit cover is great.
Their cover of teen spirit was very good last night. Seemed as though the crowd were enjoying themselves.
enjoying themselves but not in the flailing twatish way, no talking in the crowd downstairs either, grossly over sold though. At the start I was upstairs fighting to find a posistion to get a view and noted how bored i was getting with sore knees so i forced my way down to the front because i saw a stream of people near the bar, was right at the front for smells like teen spirit and it was one of the most enjoyable gig moments of my life.
I would be pleased if that made an appearance on Tuesday.
wonderful in Brighton. Although I stupidly stood right near a very bassy speaker and didn't get the best listening experience. Awesome show though, 'Teen Spirit' being great made up for me still never having seen 'TPIAGA' live. I still think the Hissing Fauna stuff stands out so much from everything they've done though.
This was a highlight in Brighton too... >>> http://www.flickr.com/photos/crazybobbles/3225337134/
it was so load but really unclear
so many typos today
I just think the crowd was.. just one of the best I have been to in a gig for a while, really got into it without being a bunch of twats
"Suffer For Fashion" and "A Sentence of Sorts in Kongsvinger" - can't beat them!!
the Franz Ferdinand cover though I must admit...
Overall, really good.
milking the scottish crowd a bit. Brilliant otherwise though, loads of fun :)
looking forward to dublin on wednesday
pretty rubbish that they're not doing grotesque animal though
V excited. Stiff Kitten has a fucking TINY stage though, not sure how they will perform all their shenanigans!
thats what they did at digital which has a small stage
I've never been to the SK for a 'proper' rock gig so I share the above posters concerns too
But they don't really have any interactive features. What Yesiamaduck says may make the gig actually amazing though, better than if the stuff was on the stage. I'm getting ridiculously excited now!
Meaning of Montreal are off-stage by 9.45 app. =(
Cannae wait me
I actually wouldnt see them if there not play Grosteque Animal, I'd just be too disapointed, yes I'm a plastic fan so what, but that song does things to me no other can.
Shame they're not playing Grosteque Animal but when they finished with it at ATP last year it was one of the most perfect gig moments of my life so maybe it'll be good to savour that memory?
Who am I kidding. Just play it!
first time I've seen them, so looking forward to it. I love Grotesque Animal but didn't expect them to play it because of its length, so not too pissed off, would have been nice though!
Sad to hear they're not playing Grotesque Animal, but I didn't think they would be really. That song kinda sums up Hissing Fauna I guess, and this will be more about Skeletal Lamping.
Any ideas if they are playing Disconnect The Dots? One of my top of Montreal songs for sure.
I'm sure I've heard them play it live though...
Hope they haven't retired Grotesque Animal for good, it was stunning at the Scala show in '07.
and a real heavyweight, draining, emotional experience, i was a little surprised they played it at ATP and Field Day, since it took up almost a third of their (festival) set, still, it is awesome. I think right now they want to play the new album and it sounded great live (I was in B'ton too, very full, that room, but it turned into an awesome gig, best time I've seen them so far, i think the band really enjoyed it too...)
the contrast between the joy of their happy poppy songs and the anguish of that one was incredible
But You Ain't No Picasso has a bootleg of the covers show they did on NYE:
a band doing fascimile covers of over-played songs when they have a plethora of material to play is such a cheap-shot. And a shame that a largely-stoic crowd move mostly for those two :(
Minor gripes aside, 'twas amazing
just back from dublin show. was alright. some of the older songs like suffer for fashion and that antarctica one were really good but some of the new stuff sounded decidedly meh. Would've helped if grotesque animal had broken up the camp pop, but of course they're not playing that this tour. Sound was pretty shocking though, which didn't help. At some points I could barely hear the band over the sound of people around me chatting. Was surprised at the venue being packed with trendy teenagers - i didn't know of montreal attracted that sort of crowd.
