but Zun Zun Egai weren't very good. To me they occupied the middle ground between Fugazi and the Red Hot Chilli Peppers, one song even ripped the bass riff from Waiting Room!
I was quite pissed I missed John Butcher, wish he had the support slot instead of the warm up one.
and has a guy from Void in his live band so is really clued up on his Hardcore.
TEENAGE JESUS AND THE JERKS!!! AMAZING!!!
I have to go now, i'm super excited about Boss Hog as well.
BUTTHOLE SURFERS!!! THE DIRTBOMBS!!!
Would they stay on the stage? that's way not as fun.
An amazing drummer who helped to produce so much amazing music. He will be sorely missed.
I left after 2 songs. Psychedelic Horseshit on the other hand were awesome.
A brilliant guitarist from a still very underrated band.
But I feel they have gone out on a high instead of spluttering into oblivion somewhere.
I haven't worked out how to do the funny u's.
Get's my vote, an incredibly influential soundtrack as well.
Looking forward to Japrocksampler...
Our Band could be your Life
Rip it Up and Start Again
Anything by Lester Bangs
However their stance on issues such as homosexuality were questionable at best. You could however say that it was their religion talking and not themselves.
An interview with HR would have been very interesting, but this is still good.
To be honest though I have no idea why they are reforming. The new album isn't as good as their earlier work but it's enjoyable. Maybe I'm being a little cynical...
as I ventured like a shivering virgin into this lark known as music. I love them.
Some of their most recent stuff has been awesome.
Playing with the Behaviour ensemble, one of my favourite gigs this year.
and the response was pretty much the same.
Still he says he'll be doing live stuff soonish anyway as soon as he sorts out some things.
There's loads of good stuff here, in fact it kicks last years line up into a cocked hat.
But where is NERVOUS TESTPILOT?!?!?!?!?
I shall investigate.
If it happened I might as well die as soon as they play their last note as life wouldn't get any better then that.
to find a concept for this album from the song titles alone. There better be one.
Rest in Peace.
There seems to be quite a heavy krautrock influence on this album. That is no bad thing at all.
Is Devo's cover of Satisfaction or The Boredoms covering The Mekons 'Where were You?'
Birmingham right now...
I'm tempted to play the waiting game though to see if there's more dates.
Here's Bristol's line-up so far.
BRISTOL early line-up:
- New Young Pony Club
- Architecture In Helsinki
- Kate Nash
- Furthest Drive Home
- Help She Can't Swim
- Kap Bambino
- Late Of The Pier
- Nova Saints
- Olympus Mons
- Sky Larkin
- The Black Ghosts
- Thieves Like Us (Kitsune)
- Victorian English Gentlemens Club
- Fortune Drive (acoustic)
- Sunset Cinema Club
if it was The Arcade Fire but that line up is just totally dull and not worth leaving the house for.
sounds better then the stuff on the latest Fall album so I'm looking forward to this one as a lot of the electronic Fall stuff was quite good.
I've picked the best festival to go to. I can't wait!
"John Peel Innovation Award - Enter Shikari"
I think I can hear the sound of a man turning in his grave.
Iron Henry is one of my favourite albums of this year. Yeah.
I won't repeat what I already mentioned here:
Needless to say I'm going to shed a tear when the last show finishes. I mean the BBC can't even be fucked to have one and a quarter hours of new and experimental music a week on it's network.
What hope is there for the genuienly different in today's media? It really is all about the interent and magazines such as The Wire.
some awesome bands there!
A music telly show worth watching?!? Stone the fucking crows.
of course you have to flip a coin.
Heads = Work of genius
Tails = Glimmers of genius with loads of turgid crap
Here's to hoping...
I made a cardboard Candylion today.
A SFA Techno album would slay all.
There seems to be 3 parts to this...
Burn Piano Island Burn.
Silly old me...
At first I didn't warm to it as well, but now I've come round and believe it to be a great record.
However there are a few weak tracks on this album (Lazer Life, Spit Shine Your Black Clouds, Street Wars, Exotic Foxholes) which stop this album becoming brilliant, I understand that these are the slower tracks in general and I wouldn't want the album to be simply one paced all the way through but they are just weak.
However when the band hit form there's nothing that can touch them, on tracks such as 'We ride Skeletal Lightning' and 'You're the Dream Unicorn'.
Good review as well Mr Diver.
Second best Blood Brothers album after
the best SFA album!
the runaway winners.
is the second worst one.
Rings Around the World is the worst SFA album, then again it's still very good.
Are released in tins.
on Radio 3 has plenty of new music.
When Dr Dre reveals that he isn't actually a doctor?
How to reward loyal fans - Release a best of which contains two new songs which compels the hardcore fans into buying it.
