I'd heard rumors that Arcade Fire would be doing one, was looking forward to it!
and since when was Carmarthen in the Valleys?
those girls were well annoying. they ended up stamping all over the band's pedals.
this gig was amazing :-)
It was originally meant to be upstairs, but they didn't sell any tickets at all, so Clwb felt it made sense to move it downstairs.
I honestly don't know where exactly they'll fit in the Cardiff shop. It's tiny!
this is actually funny. I laughed.
But no, releasing You! Me! Dancing! as a first single would have been kinda silly. Build up a buzz with a couple of low key singles then release the Big One is generally the way things are done. They need to finish uni before they do the band full time.
Loving this record though. Please Don't Tell me is genuinely brilliant.
is actually one of the pinnacles of human achievement.
is basically a perfect song. One of the best things The Shins have ever done.
The Seven Sleepers Den is re-released on CD on March 5th through My Kung Fu records, and you can also get it on vinyl as well. YAY!
to do with this gig, or Forecast as a whole?
There's a whole bunch of Forecast shows to be announced, not that I'm going to say anything, but he's actually printing stuff out on special Forecast brown paper now so it shouldn't be long before news comes out.
You obviously havn't received a flyer! Or sign up to the Forecast mailing list. SHAME ON YOU!
In Cardiff they're doing 2 sets. One as a duo, and one with a Hungarian backing band.
Is this the case for the whole tour?
people should listen you know :-)
The Horrors' look comes from victorian/Dickensian place, with a strong gothic influence. Panic! At The Disco's looks is of a more American, Southern 'Riverboat' look.
"and if the snow buries my neighbourhood, then i'll dig a tunnel, from my window to yours!"
it's just finding it that's the problem, but atleast the Listen Again option means I can hear stuff at a reasonable hour.
I agree that the Colin Murray show is rubbish but between 6 Music (especially the Freakzone), Huw Stephens, and Adam Walton on Radio Wales, there really is a load of interesting stuff being played on the airwaves.
but when I listen I still get a voice in my head going "I could be listening to Wolf Parade right now"
though doesn't NME.com win NMEs best website award every year?
I feel special, thanks :-)
is also trying to sue WWE wrestler Tripple H, who also reffers to himself as 'The Game' (and has been doing so for longer than the rapper's career). Not content with merely using the court system, the rapper has also challenged the wrestler to an actual fight.
In other wrestling/hip hop/litigation news, the wrestler Dimond Dallas Page is trying to sue Jay Z because Jay Z posed for a photo doing DDPs trademark 'hand gesture' or something.
there's a video for Hopscotch here
go to Trail o' Dead on the gigboat.
I believe in Twee-sus.
The 2nd one is the day after my birthday. YAY!
It was a cracking night was this. What I like best about this review though is that it mentions The Hat Game.
"Lesson number one? Noisy rock. Ace."
-is that a Cardiff in-joke?
I'll have to not see my Mam on her birthday mind, but that Cardiff gig will be fun :-D
No, not him! ME! Yes, me!
Fantastic band, totally exciting. Small Bones Small Bodies is good beyond description.
he's got a new show, playing mainly/exclusively unsigned bands.
I don't agree with that.
Huw Stephens? Adam Walton? Probably some others, I can't think.
that despite all their John Was A Scientist's, and monkeys, and LSD, Kasabian will never write anything as bonkers as that new My Chemical Romance song.
is Cardiff in the West Country?
I could come to this. It will be totally ace. 2 of the weekend's highlights for sure.
I wonder if it's named after his favourite pub in Cardiff?
....Sorry, that was a local joke which only about 5 people will get. Yay.
