who is going? anyone seen them yet in the last few days?
stage times/support band info would be cool as well...
have had the pleasure of seeing them at the proud gallery on saturday and the barfly last night and have been blown away both times, was lovely to see them pack out a bigger venue like proud but last night edged it for me. New stuff which I wasn't warming to on record sounds immense and really quite loud. honestly my favourite band of the last few years!
Oh last night the support band, the joy formidble were worthwhile too, sort of pj harvey/throwing muses, a nice surprise. No idea about support tonight though.
They were pretty ace. The crowd was a bit shit though. There was nearly a fight next to me. It was a farily lame effort.
The new stuff sounds good live. Brian commented to the crowd that they seemed to know the new stuff - *cheeky grin* "Don't worry I do that too". Hehe, makes a change from the ZOMG PIRACY IS RAEP attitude.
The Joy Formidable were quite impressive; they make a big noise for a little three piece. Also they were standing near the exit when I left and they were really smiley and seemed genuinely happy when we complimented their set.
proud and barfly were superb, hopefully tonight will be to!
the joy formidable, hope they are supporting tonight.
that was awesome again, thought the crowd was a lot better than barfly the night before. really do love 'the royal we' live - sounds amazing. hopefully they wont take as long as they did last time to get back over here!
I didn't know they were even in the country.
amazing how consistent they are without the performance feeling too scripted, I have no idea if they're bullshitting when they react all grateful and humbled but it feels like they mean it and that's enough, the new songs sound absolutely wonderful, I tried to record it on tape but a lot of it got scrambled by too much jumping around, they are impossible to stay still to...!
Still can't afford the 99$ box set of the new album though, outrageous price because it contains a print by their artwork guy whose stuff costs a bomb, shame.
It was a top gig as well: hope they are back soon.
Joy Formidable were impressive as well, a nice double bill
And he was fucking -desperate- to catch them. Not sure he made it though..
