anyone seen them yet? was it good? thinking about going to the brighton show tonight.
it was really good, his banter was brilliant as per. I havent heard any of Malcolm Middletons new Human Dont Be Angry stuff but he is always good live as well, i'd defo go if you have the chance.
Really boring loop-pedal guitar stuff. Really liked his old stuff, but saw him supporting Bright Eyes - not impressed at all.
would have to agree with the above about Middleton's new stuff.
are classics. I can't decide if I love Into the Woods or Waxing Gibbous better. They left more of an impact on me then Arab Strap (though I adore them to). Please tell me he hasn't given that up for some experiemental guitar drones.
I think, If I'd written a song as brilliant as 'Red Travellin' Socks' and was still met with indifference after 5 albums, I'd go 'fuck it' and start making droney nonsense as well. Shame really, as he's probably one of the best songwriters we've produced in the last decade or so. A real shame.
I saw him do the Valentines Day show, and am tempted to go to Oxford on Friday...
And a lovely man to boot.
