much better by the Sunday, but I think having seen them 3 days in a row takes the edge off a little bit.
I wasn't at this gig, but looking forward to Brixton regardless of any whingeing.
at ATP a few years back, although they got better as the weekend went on. The vocals were completely inaudible then too and I think Shields claimed technical difficulties at the time.
They were absolutely brilliant at Benicassim though so I'm thinking for now that they sound better outside where they sound has room to spread out (it was still ear burstingly loud). Going to the second Brixton gig, so hopefully they'll be on form by then...
On the subject of 10/10s, anyone listened to that Blondes album since the first week the got it?
Think Tank is their best work
to like this, having been a fan of 'Sunshine'. Perhaps the hype has done for me, but I just didn't find it that exciting. There's not much here to make it stand out from a lot of house-y type stuff that's around at the moment, and I found the tracks with vocals pretty grating.
this is total dross. Saw them in Brighton a couple of years back and they were brilliant. Going to see them on Friday night - I hope they go easy on this stuff. Horrible!
version of 'I've been waiting for you' by Neil Young is wonderful.
for worst ever band name, methinks.
does look quite youthful in the picture.
You missed Nissenenmondai!?! Fools!
I'll take that on a rejects EP. Looking forward to the album
I'm pretty underwhelmed by the remixes. Still think the original album is the best thing they've done though.
month are these dates in DiS?!
is the only one that I'd like to hear now.
...I meant about the Heaven 17 rip off.
to this for the fist time and this is exactly what came to my mind
..originally came out in 2002 but was swiftly re-released in 2003. I really shouldn't know that.
which was admittedly right at the back, it didn't really work for Yo La Tengo in that room and I wasn't convinced by the format. They seem like nice people, but you do have to be very witty and charismatic to hold the interest of a crowd who predominantly like you for your music. The heckles were dull and diffiuclt to hear- I'd ahve gladly taken 8 or 9 more songs rather than the talking and heckling that made up about a third of the show.
is also my immediate favourite. That will probably have changed by next week though as they're all damn good.
to learn to type.
And the album sound 10x better on the cd than the pre-release download.
This is rubbish news. Fair play for the explanation though- make the album a belter sir!
The site of my teenage introduction to clubs- turning up with no idea what was on but loving every minute of it! Can't go on forever though I suppose. Pretty sure I've never bought a beverage in their either!
which makes the decision to have the drums so weak in the mix on 'Ten Silver Drops' all the more baffling. I've said it before but the E.P and Now here is nowhere are excellent, but I could only stomach two plays of Ten Silver Drops- discounting Alone, Jealous and stoned
to like the last album but i just find most of it quite annoying- some good bits though fo' sure.
I just don't really get minimal music, so to me Radio Slave's tracks sound incredibly similar- and they go on for about 6 months! I know there is supposed to be a different way of listening to minimal, but I just can't quite grasp it. I've got a Jamelia remix he did- it's cool for a couple of minutes.
...prefer this to his Radio Slave stuff. As Radio Slave he seems to have put out the same record about 100 times. I think the quiet village album has a really nice feel to it- i gather that the minimal heads find it difficult to cope with the presence of hooks and melodies though!
And as for comparing it El Gunicho! The two couldn't be more different! El Guincho was brilliant at Benicassum btw.
...Axel WIllner's The Field
Now a Dj can add all sorts of special effects on Ableton or whatever, but doesn't have to be a discerning music selector as they can just download loads of tracks and throw away the ones they don't want. Being able to access thousands of tracks at the touch of a button reduces the quality of a DJ becuase the selection process has been removed. If you have to spend £6-7 quid on a record you've got to be sure that you want it- you've got to hunt it down too. Is it really a good thing that anyone can be a DJ now?
...were at their best on big night out, before it became scripted and over produced. Big Night Out was genuinly haphazard and ridiculous, which was the beauty of it. Everything that followed was stage-managed 'surrealism' with a laughter track. Graham Lister alone was better than anything that followed.
And Shooting Stars was full of catch phrases and tedious repetiion.
Agree on Boosh- third series was embarrassing- I imagine the DVD sales refelct this.
...was pretty unlistenable as far as I was concerned- sounded like it was recorded inside a dustbin
...i was just thinking the same thing...
...agreed on Future of the Left!
...got round to listening to 'In Rainbows' this morning. Left me slightly cold. Maybe that was the frost. Oh, that was yesterday.
...when is the Pele album out?
on a rope slurred by a junkie
someone beat me up for my spelling.
she never met to cause him trouble...
the Secret Machines are being made to listen to Ten Silver Drops on repeat 24 hours a day for at least 8 months so that they can be left in no doubt about how horrible it was.
'I've been waiting for you' by Pixies! yes!
Your melodrama could perhaps have been avoided if you'd correctly read the title of the last track which is 'The Story of Yo la Tango'. Like the fizzy drink. Or the now seldom seen dance.
