just got fabulous muscles... wow. brilliant.
basically their most accessible song.
.....they are 1/4 amazing, 3/4 what the hell is going on?! on record they are half amazing, half what the hell?!
i dunno, everybody goes on about volcano! being great but its far more accesible than that. brian the vampire is good.
and Sad Pony Guerilla Girl are pretty accessible by Xiu Xiu's standards, right?
Brian The Vampire manages to scare the shit out of me and make me think "Jesus, what a good song"
I love Xiu Xiu oh-so.
I Luv The Valley OH
Their 5 most amazing songs.
my favourite Xiu Xiu song.
Basically Fabulous Muscles has all the most accesible songs.
leaves me completely cold...
there's no point in reminding me !
Hives Hives is great, jazzy.
I saw them live last week and I would say they were 3/4 amazing and 1/4 what the hell is going on! But then again I knew all the songs on they played except two or three so I knew what to expect. If you ever get the opportunity to see them, do it!
"Muppet Face" and "Pox" off La Foret are very accessible too. And the track "Fabylous Muscles" is probably their most beautiful song...
i saw them last week too! with final fantasy! i sent mr crabtree a review he is sizing it up i think. yes. they were ruddy bloody excellent tho i think FF beat XX, just... he had overhead projectors to play with
you have no idea how jealous I am.
mainland Europe doesn't know how lucky they are.
For the people who don't get Xiu Xiu, listen to I Luv The Valley OH and Clowne Towne. If that doesn't work, check pulse and then repeat.
i'm still kicking myself for missing xiu xiu & a silver mt. zion for er, eurovision.
but yes! i luv the valley (OH!) & pox & other pretty songs are a NACE place to start.
250 capacity venue. And it was not sold out ;-)
And Silver Mt Zion were OK. A bit boring live are they not? "God bless our dead marines" is really good but their song that goes "Blind blind blind" is just dreadful. The rest is kind of average. Maybe I'm just not really into them...
saw them last month, it was amazing how they reproduced the weird and wonderful sound live. (vibrating fork-thingie on cymbals, little bells etc.)
definitely Clowne Towne & i love the valley Oh! Some of the other songs scares me a bit though, admittedly.
