New album - includes a David Essex cover:
Might see them there.
Going to try and convince my mate who I'm visiting to come with me.
why won't this band play headline shows in the uk ffs
is playing a solo set in support of Loscil next month:
Is great. Looking forward to the album.
Are touring I think, playing Village Underground in Feb.
Felt like it could have gone on for another five minutes, which is a great sign.
If they recorded the sound of a lesbian wrapped in tin foil falling down the stairs and put some beats under it then the Wire would probably be happier.
that aspect of The Wire is overplayed, maybe it was true in the past.. in many ways Tortoise are sort of a very Wire-friendly band anyway, they certainly would have been at their peak
I used to subscribe to the wire about 4 or 5 years ago and I actually ended my subscription because I thought they were becoming increasingly 'unlistenably avant garde is the only way'.
After a ticket if anyone has one (or more) going
Other than the Yo La Tengo song. Just love Tortoise really.
...until November and relocated to Tufnell Park Dome.
