DiS meet up, The Bailey, 6.30?
Thunderbirds Are Now! are on at 8.
Les Savy Fav 8.45.
someone please, finally, and for once, tell me what the fuck Les Savy Fav sound like? I like the name, and I want to know more. Please.
Just buy some records.
You will not want to take them back.
doing that. I own two shitting Bright Eyes albums that I'm never gonna listen to, and I don't need this to happen again! TELL ME YOU BASTARD!
Bright Eyes albums? Give them to me. Unless I already have them.
if so its right next to where we rehearse - we finish at 9.30 - oh dear!
Erm...bugger. I love you though...
watch them at the weekend and give you a full report upon my return.
I can sympathise, I'm in the same boat. Apparently I'll "really like them" but as yet have not heard the proof.
I might pop down if I finish work in time. Although not sure I can afford the Â£13 to get in.
My flatmate turned down free tickets for this because LOST is on tonight, hehe.
flatmate has issues, serious issues...
Although The Bill is on tonight, so I'd have done the same thing.
who looked a LOT like Donnie Darko once told me I'd like them. I still haven't heard any yet though.
are they a typical mike Driver band?
'typical mike diver band'?
Mr Diver has an icredibly wide music taste.
Nah, not really, if you consider me schooled in punk/hardcore.
Les Savy Fav bring the party, Marty.
I can't fuggin' wait.
They are, maybe, the best live band I've ever seen.
you Londoners make me fucking sick.
That sounds like an ace night.
on computers! I'm at work, and I broke my home one! I'm in a dark world here.
but 13 quid - bah - anyway is they were on after 9.30 I'd probably come on down - get some tips for that beat combo I 'ply' 'my trade' in (OMD)
broke your home one? In a fit of rage or summin?
I would describe them for you bamos but up until this morning my ears had never clapped on to them. Perhaps an actual fan would like to do the honours?
They are the perfect party band: they've got the hip-slinkin' moves and they've got the punk-rockin', dance beat heavy tunes. Who rocks the party? THEY do, brother. Who knocked the apples from the trees? THEY did, sister, with skyscrapers of funked-up blunderbuss bombast. The Empire State needn't be made of ginger cake for them to have it crumbling to the floor... but you'll all have got a taste.
I have no idea what I'm writing...
the jukebox in my head is now thinking Q And Not U? The Rapture? Forward Russia? Anywhere near?!?
...but not quite. More Q and not U than the others, for sure. They can jerk with the best of 'em, but the lyrics are key. You have to see 'em, really.
They're rated 8/10 on here from 124 people... which is pretty fuggin good.
what time you getting there on Friday? Did you get a lift sorted?
How about you?
but already 5 in there so can't offer you lift, sorry. Give us a ring when you get in though and come party in our chalet.
I shall do just THAT.
And then skin you on the crazy golf course.
What he said ^^^
I think you've talked me into it. I'm gonna come down, 8.45 means it should be an early(ish) finish too.
Hopefully see you cats later.
heavier than Q And Not U then, or more guitar based? I like the sound of it I think, so what album should I take a punt on?
Cheers MD, appreciate this.
I'm well aware this may inspire a jokey response.
In your FACE!
Hmmmmmmmm, interesting sound.
made me laugh like a child - I am silly arent i?
critical mass? Are you attempting to save it for something monumental? (i have no idea what your count is)
mega excited about this gig already.
I may do a little wee.
(PS: our water is back on. Mmmm, Thames Water tea.)
Wonderful People by Q and not U, and think it totally sucks. Is that typical of them? Will I therefore not like Les Savy Fav? I didn't like it because it sounds like Scissor Sisters.
is great. But not necessarily typical, the older stuff was less disco-y. All of it is amazing though.
Is not wholly representative of Q and not U: that's one of two songs that're kinda disco from their last album.
The first one, No Kill No Beep Beep, is fuggin brilliant.
I'll give them another chance then...
of Les Savy Fav - is anyone actually going??
going to wait and see them over the weekend instead :)
Well I am going, hence that first post.
As is Colin Roberts Esq and my girlfriend.
And 300-odd others.
Is this a good time to say I *might* have a spare ticket...??
She has new hair and is now an Ã¼ber-vixen.
how many spare tickets do you have for tonight Mr D?
just one, single.
on the door?
but in advance was Â£13 face value with a couple o quid booking fee.
Probably around Â£15 on the door.
Then no. I am Still Ill. I'm in my nightclothes and glasses, sniffling and aching. Poor me.
Get better for the weekend!
definitely. With the help of some sympathy PMs, and someone to make me weak lemon drinks, that kind of thing...
I do indeed have a spare ticket for tonight's grrreat show.
It's cos it was for a mate, who cannae come, but I'm on the list, so blah blah blah... basically I'm nay asking for much.
A couple o' beers for a Â£13 face-value ticket?
What time are you heading into the gig? It depends what time I can finish work.
And will be in the venue from 8.
and I'm grafting every night this week as well as being here all day - grrr
all ill at the moment!
I'm full of cold and got a nasty cough!
Id be very grateful etc etc...beer n ting.
First person to PM me can 'ave it away, so long as they are not MENTAL.
That ralphcore is quick.
CHEERS MIKE!! was going to go anyway but i was put off by the Â£13 ticket prices > Â£13 worth of beer for Mike seems less harsh tho. I'll txt you in a bit Mike. shower>
I wish I sat in front of a PC all day and had seen this free ticket malarkey. *curses*
Ralphy watch your back you cheeser! haha im gonna see them at the weekend though, like you say Â£13.
you're a cunt i hate you
they are my new les spazy fav band. Thunderbirds where quite nice too
