The Chemical Brothers - Star Guitar:
I don't really see why that At The Drive-In one is special.
but it's true.
I was genuinely curious.
The fact I think they're rubbish is irrelevant.
before they're no longer considered 'New'?
You heard it here first.
but I think this song is 10/10. It's stunning and contains the loveliest sentiments. I don't think I've heard a better song this year.
and am looking forward to the album.
on September 22nd, I think.
quite a lot. I should really pull my finger out and get a ticket to the London show.
but surely one disc would have been enough. My favourite tracks aren't on there too (Here Comes The Breeze, Free to Run, Tijuana Lady, Buena Vista).
but they seem to have missed most of their best songs.
and thought they were really rather ace. Bush Hall was the hottest place on earth though.
I think so. Glastonbury and Reading don't appeal to me although I'm sure they are good fun. I don't like huge crowds and I don't want to traipse for miles to see bands. I want to sit in a field in summer and have fun.
really was a sensational weekend but my enjoyment of it was not down to the line-up. There was not one single band that I thought I HAD to see, it was just great sitting with friends drinking beer in the sunshine while live music was played in front of you. I would have quite liked to have seen Regina Spektor but there was no way I was going into a sweaty barn on a sunny Sunday evening when I could sit outside with friends and be stupid. The fact the Mystery Jets were playing live at the same time was a great bonus. Basically, Truck was about the atmosphere and the people for me. If you asked me what my favourite bands of the weekend were, I'd probably say the ones where I remember having the most fun while they were playing. I hope this makes sense.
I love Underworld too. Thanks for the heads up.
I was about to get a ticket until I read that it's the same day as Animal Collective.
I don't have a ticket for that either though.
that is classic. Theo = hero.
Can't you get them to play the DiS night at Barfly? Now THAT would be good.
this column gets better.
are playing at Fabric in July. I think.
If he plays again (and it's not Rhythm Factory) I'll go.
if only I could somehow work out how to lower the volume slightly. I tried it and nearly deafened myself.
I wasn't there last night so I haven't heard his songs in a live setting but from what listening to Color Strip I think he's good but nothing special. Yet. I am only referring to his music though... talented bastard seems to be good at a lot of things.
is why I'm not so keen on it. I'd prefer an adrenaline rush but it is quite soulful at times.
but he's so obviously from Detroit though and it's hardly groundbreaking. I'm just not that taken with Color Strip.
but I wouldn't say he's that forward thinking. Much of Color Strip sounds like stuff that's been coming out of Detroit for years.
What happened to Paisley Park? Maybe it's being refurbished.
Could have been worse.
That Low gig is possibly the most amazing gig this year (or any year) and I can't go. Shit.
That was nice_squirrel. I saw all three bands in their entirety and I think that The Rank Deluxe deserved a higher score than the 6 they got in the DiS review. I'd have given them 9. Who is this Andrew Cooper anyway?
They were brilliant at Bamos' night and that other time we saw them.
I am looking forward to Friday now.
Is that some club night thing where they'll be on late? I've never been to White Heat.
I am tempted to go.
Are they supporting Carina Round or is it the other way round?
I thought they were crap. As did the people I was with.
Good work Crabbers. That Tom looks like a right fool now!
This album is fantastic, I love it and it could well be my album of the year.
