Going to see them in Newcastle tonight. Anyone else going?
What can i expect?
i'll pick you up at about 7:30 ok mate.
And they're not really my cup o' tea. So you should have a great time :D
that made me laugh Magpieboy - that is an alarming trend
Everyone at T I gigs is young, front row moshing, them crashing about the stage, Sam may take the sequencer thing and wave it about a bit while Dev poses with the pink guitar and then they make a racket and sprawl all over the place. FUN. Don't expect it to be anything but like being knocked over by a bullet train gone before you've had the chance to think about it.
i am very VERY excited!
They only have one pair each. :-D
Top stuff. I really like the album.
Not a lot of anything particularly interesting.
'I'm on top of that trick' noise with a bassline to flatten condemned skyscrapers.
the defence rests.
smokes a congratulatory cigar :D
you're still funny though so that's consolation. You would have had to elbow your way past detestable fan girls to see them.
when I saw them the neon plastix (electro pop) were supporting and I really didn't like them then. I have their single now so I'm curious as to whether they were that bad or not.
but then I'm a sucker for anything (electro pop).
the Rough Trade compilation? You'd really like it Tom - buy it! It turned me on to electro/tech whatever music that you youngthings listen to in London. Blown away are the only words for it plus I love the spinto band so so much and they're on it. Oh circle square is on there and the RT shop people have excellent taste so what does that tell you?!
are so much better than tes ticicles.
is so much better than Test Icicles.
They're fun live. Very impressive guitar work. And haircuts.
They copied Bloc Party by having a multicultural line-up.
Yeah, or Dead Kennedys. I was just larking about. Facking hell.
Anyway - I've got a party to be at. Bye.
Have fun at the gig X
has that got to do with them being good or not???
that was a reference to one of wrighty's posts where he claimed that test icicles were unoriginal because they were copying bloc party by having an "unwhite" member.
i missed that one.
I remember you not missing it.
...is one of mine
May I recommend them.
Damn Arms from Oz.
Think DFA1979 but with tunes. and a bit of keys.
They have been going down a fecking storm thus far.
And watch out for flying equipment when TI are on. the cops were called alst night cos a flying summink hit someone on the bonce
Love the album, expecting a fair old night of moshing.
Should be good.
tickets for the ULU gig, so a bit pissed off, but i saw em back in november. They are a lot of fun live.
