Is this on a par with wearing their t-shirt to the gig in 'don't be that guy' stakes, or not?
I get the feeling that if I did that my stupid analytical mind would spend the gig picking out differences between the live and recorded stuff. Which would probably result in less enjoyment of the gig. I wish I could turn that part of my brain off wrt music sometimes.
don't wear their t-shirt fo' sho', but whats wrong with listening to their music?
have you ever read that buddyhead 'rules of rock' thing?
Or on the way back.
Buddyhead had it right. Don't be that guy.
Do it again and it's unforgivable. Go directly to suicide, do not pass Go, do not collect £200.
it proper gets you in the mood for it :)
i usually go up to london for a day if im seeing a band so im on a train that morning. listening to their music on the way gets me up for it!
I listen to them in the morning on my way to work, sometimes when waiting for people i'm metting before we go to the pub before hand or something.
.....on the way to some bloody tent they were playing in Lancashire somewhere.....
It didn't put me in a good mood......I haven't done it since....
don't be silly, you need to get in the mood, I really can't see any problem with it at all.
but it's overload. People who do this strike me as those who don't know the material well enough.
when mrs.shimmetry isnt particularly aware of the band that i'm dragging her along to see. To be fair, she's quite happy to go and see anyone I suggest so I think it's OK to give her some reference tracks on the way. On the way back, no.
