Thanks Xavi for the "Flux" link!

Paste: Got any tricks up your sleeve for your new material?

MT: Tricks? I hope so. I think our new stuff is going to be a lot less textured than the last record. I think the third studio incarnation of Bloc is going to be a bit like the rawer earlier Bloc, but with experience.


If he thinks "Flux" is less textured and rawer, I'd hate to hear what he thinks a layered, produced song sounds like!

"Flux" = Bloc Party = The Killers circa Hot Fuss

"Flux"

^ Then logically speaking, does that mean:

A Weekend In The City = OK Computer


???

I don't think Bloc are afraid of much.

A fraidy-cat band would've put out "Silent Alarm 2" . . . not A Weekend In The City.

I'm just IM'ing with my friend about "Flux". I was saying I think AWITC could've used maybe 1 or 2 more fast songs like this one, or fast like "Like Eating Glass" or "Helicopter".

Not that I don't love "On", "Kruezberg" and "Sunday" . . . but the 2nd half does slow down quite a bit. "Flux" would've been perfect right after "Where Is Home?"

But, hey, they're young. They've got better albums ahead!

Just watched Conan...cool song, love seeing them

It's kinda in the vein of The Prayer with the electronic element...I dig it. then again I dig pretty much anything Bloc create.

I wonder when the new album will be...? I'm assuming this is just a one-off single since there's no word of an album ready yet.

I saw it and thought the same thing. I was hoping that wasn't typical of their sound (gotta admit I haven't heard, or knowingly heard, anything from them before ). It isn't, is it?

Their performance did catch my attention enough that I watched a couple of minutes of it so I think they have some potential to be interesting to me, but the sound issues were annoying enough it didn't hold my attention even until the end of the song. I tend to decide very quickly if I like a band/musician or not and I find myself almost interested. If the sound of this performance was not typical for them, I will certainly check out some more from them, but if it is typical I'll give them a pass.

Crap! Crap! Crap!

I waited too long! Now ticketmaster is saying tickets aren't available right now! Crap!

I just checked yesterday and tickets were still available. I had to wait until I got paid to purchase the tickets, our Internet at work has been down ALL day and it just came back up and I go to get my ticket and now it's saying they're not available right now, check back later!

Crap!

Woooo Hoooo!

So I finally scored a ticket and I just got back (and out from a hot, hot much needed shower!) and again, Bloc Party did not disappoint!

They even played TWO MORE YEARS!!! I was so happy! The last time I saw them I screamed and screamed for them to play it and they didn't. But this time they came through!

Kele even joked, something about L.A. being really cool, but let's see how cool you really are. Let's see if you recognize these next two songs. And then they played "Two More Years" and "The Once And Future King".

They are just SO AMAZING live! Their set was a bit shorter than the 2 previous times I saw them, but that was because this was the Detour festival and set times were strict. In fact, toward the end they had to tell Kele to stop talking to the audience and hurry it up b/c they had to be off by 11:30.

I also think I'm getting a bit too old for mosh pits. I got right up front, only about 5 people back and I did last the entire time, but it took everything I had. In fact, I haven't been in a pit that severe since I took my 15 year-old sister to Warped Tour last year! I think that might've just been Fitz's last pit. I got kicked in the ear SO HARD by this tiny little crowd-surfing girl and my glasses went flying off my face. Luckily (who knew) my cat-like reflexes kicked in and I shot out with my right hand and grabbed them in mid-air. Owwwwwww! And she was so tiny! How could a tiny little girl like that hurt me soooo much.

Oh, yeah, and before they came on I got another smile from Matt! He came out to test his drumkit himself and no one recognized him except me, so I screamed at the top of my lungs, "MATT! YOU'RE FUCKING AWESOME!" And he looked up at me, just like in San Diego, smiled and waved his drumstick at me! *swoon*

It was also the best "Like Eating Glass" crowd I've been in. The audience just exploded, EXPLODED, when the first few strains filtered out and that pit just went off! I think I've only ever jumped that high at 2 U2 shows before. I was po-go-ing SO HIGH! God, I love that song!

Anyway, the set list as well as I can remember:

Song For Clay (Disappear Here)
Positive Tension
Hunting For Witches
Banquet
Waiting For The 7.18
Two More Years
The Once And Future King
This Modern Love
The Prayer
Uniform
So Here We Are
Like Eating Glass

-------Encore Break-------

Sunday
She's Hearing Voices
Helicopter

Sounds awesome, I'm so mad they didn't come to Boston this time around, and when they were in Providence I was at a Bob Dylan show, which was made OK by a decent setlist (plus his band is great) and Elvis Costello playing completely solo. They're probably the band I desire to see the most (that I haven't seen already). But I did get to see The National last night after missing them earlier this year and they were excellent, and I was right at the stage.
