I lost my voice twice over the weekend! A new record! Now it hurts like daggers when I swallow.

I'd for gotten the GLC, they were amazing, especially cool was their new son Adam's Charm school.

Sons and Daughters are a very cool band - shame about the crap name which sounds like an Aussie soap opera

i have to say i didn't enjoy their set at all.

and sons and daughters was a crap aussie soap opera, not just a sound-alike :D

I really liked them.

I think their set could have been improved if they had actually sung the theme tune to sons and daughters.

And they did a song that sounded exactly like the Wurzles. That always goes down well in my book!

Did everybody freeze and turn brown at the end?

like an eskimos turd?

(yes i realise you are referring to the title sequence of sons and daughters)

Funko

Why is an eskimo's turd only brown at the end?

I must correct you.

I would expect an eskimos turd to be brown before freezing, a reversal of the Sons and Daughters closing title sequence.

the rest is covered by snow, you can't see it

:nervous:

When hunting for eskimo snow, first look for yellow snow then follow the widest part of the yellow snow back towards the thinnest end and look for a small brown peak poking through the surface of the snow.

And often a beheaded eskimo body will lie nearby.

So far this week I have seen gigs by Bad Religion and The Pixies...not a bad couple of bands to see :b:

They were both at Reading...

The Pixies were pretty good but I don't think they really suit a big festival stage, it's the kind of music you want to hear in a tiny venue.

Yeah definitely, they were the biggest let down for me. Mashed on pills, standing 4 rows from the front, I wanted GWAR or something..... the things you do for friends eh?!

Anyone out there see that band called The Arcade Fire play the Radio One Stage? They got a hell of a lot of good post-fest reviews, some saying they were the band of the festival.

I was their guest. Had a backstage pass and everything.

Too wasted to see them.

Everyone said they were great though.

I'm pretty sure I'll get to see them again.

Very over-rated I reckon. Just sound like a less good Deserter Songs-era Mercury Rev.

Well I wasn't at anything of that kind of scale, it was Alexandra Palace and I was close enough up where it felt intimate. Pretty damn good :b:

Cool you got a pass etc. But you a genuine fan of the AF? I've been following their rise for just under 2 years and think they're fantastic, especially live. :)

Not a genuine fan. My band has the same management. They sound pretty good though. I imagine they are the sort of thing that Funko's little brother likes.

I've heard their most recent song on the radio and I think it's alright actually...haven't actually heard any other stuff by them though...

Funny, from what I've heard I think he'd hate them. :)

they did get some excellent reviews for their Reading set, and various people i know who saw them backed that up

I couldn't get into the tent so it's hard to judge what they were like on the day.

Seen them live 3 times before - They were bloody amazing!
Their latest single 'Rebellion (Lies)' was released on Monday and since i've already got the album (highly recommended) I decided to buy the video single on DVD together with 2 other eccentric live versions of the song of only 99p. :)
