Think it might just be a bit good.
to see them on Sunday in Liverpool... I'm not as excited as I thought I'd be.
I will be there too.
A band called Amina are supporting, anyone know who they are?
not going. I'm skint. I hate you all. :(
if they are any bit as good as they were at somerset house, you're in for a treat.
right before i get the train to edinburgh ... so they could be utter shite and id still be soo fucking grateful for them being there because this revision makes me want to claw my eyes out
One word: wow. And another few: one of the greatest gigs I have ever been to.
I noticed my legs were aching about 2/3rds through (that's how I know if a gig is good) but when they had the song with the visuals with the birds on the wire it was amazing. And the last song, the final track off of ( ) was simply incredible.
I'm really looking forward to Liverpool now, I was listening to Takk last night, and I dunno if it's because I'm getting geared up to see them but it sounded fantastic, way better than the first couple of times I listened to it...
amazing gig tonight in edinburgh, made especially good for the fantastic visual effects for the encore of popplagiÃ°.
anima mentioned london again tonight and unfortunately there was a few idiots in the crowd though - just what generally happens at big venues sadly.
i wanted merch but not at those prices :(
...fantastic gig. Amina were brilliant as well.
I'm not sure what the london gig must have been like; there was a fair bit of talking over them again last night.
Was also slightly put off by being able to hear the air coniditioning better than some of quiet bits Amina played, but it didnt stop me enjoying their set.
Sigur Ros were, as everyone's said, fantastic. But the corn exchange is crap. My feet hurt. And I'm hungover.
corn exchange is a horrible hole. i hate it. Y'need to be down the front pretty centrally to get alright sound plus its a pain in the arse to get to plus the security are completely anal. If it had been at the queens hall again t'would have been even better.
i hate people talking during bands playing, especially ones which are pretty quiet at times. grrrr.
They played in the Philharmonic Hall last night, we were sat right at the back on the left and it still sounded like we were sitting directly in front of the sound desk at any other gig I've been to.
Incredible show too, definitely the best gig I've ever seen, 2 hours of sheer brilliance, and the light show was a bit special...
Amina were brilliant, they didn't have any of the problems that they had elsewhere, at one point they faded one of their tunes out slowly, and you could have heard a pin drop, absolute awed silence. It was an amazing moment. I think the venue helped, it was all seated so you didn't get big groups of wankers standing with their backs to the stage chatting...
was a crap venue ... but both bands were amazing
sigur ros encore might be the best thing iv ever seen at a gig.....ever
i'm with you there, there isn't really words to describe how good that was.
the last track off of ( )? If so, you're right, it was absolutely incredible at Brixton.
