We Carry On sounds like they've listened to a lot of Silver Apples (and just copied it).

from what i gleamed at coachella geoff has been watching lots of john carpenter movies and copied them. he also said that this album was the last one contracted to the record label and they've already written the next. which is the best position any band can be in. popular and without a label.

Why does everyone love headphones so much? I don't like them much and only use them if it would disturb other people too much.

makes all mixes better, makes you inside the music and gives you 100% attention to the music. i guess some people get freaked out by hearing so much information at once.

personally headphones come a close second to sitting in the sweet spot in a recording studio.

Agreed with protein on the headphones point. The first time I noticed the benefit was listening to Beatles. It adds a new dimension to any music worth its salt.

I'd listen to it with headphones, only I'd only hear half of it and I've already listened to it.

It's good enough that after about ten years of waiting I'm happy to hear it. It would have been nice if it would have came out eight years ago.

Not now they've closed one of the main roads and turned it into Britain's largest cul-de-sac.
