Their concert in Montreal in September was the show of the year for me and it eclipsed concerts I saw from The Killers, Oasis and even Radiohead. It was just THAT good.

When are they going to tour in the US, they've done all this constant touring lately, but never come to Boston in the past few years, they were in freaking Providence in fall 2007, but I was at a Bob Dylan concert that night.

They haven't come here (Utah) since their initial US tour for Silent Alarm.

I missed them, and not by much

Why'd you have to get so hysterical
Why'd you have to get so hysterical
Why'd you have to get so hysterical
Why'd you have to get so fucking useless

I just mentally went through the entire instrumental part that comes immediately after that in my mind.

I just heard the acoustic version of "Signs" and "Talons", when I read the word acoustic next to a song like "Talons" I was majorly confused, its such an audacious idea, but its pretty cool.

TRUST ME, after touring almost constantly for about 5 years, they have become stellar live! Like I said, not every show is going to be pure magic (I find the festival and multi-billed shows to be not quite as good as when it's just their own concert), but when they are on, they blow the roof off! And they're more often on than not; of the 7 times I've seen them, I'd say they were only not good once.
I'm sure and I hope that they would be enjoyable....

It was called Bloc Party Live At Heaven 14/12/04. Was a bonus DVD with my copy of Silent Alarm.


I can imagine songs from AWITC and Intimacy having greater potential live than some of the Silent Alarm tunes.....

I've been checking out some of "Live and Intimate" on YouTube, its excellent. We need a tour DVD from 2007, but with Intimacy and this tour we won't see one, maybe for the Intimacy touring circuit we'll get something. We who they refuse to bestow their greatness on need at least that.

I'm pretty sure it's because they're mad at you, PowHou.

Totally, they're mad I chose to stay in my own town and watch Bob Dylan & Elvis Costello, rather than drive to Providence to see them (I probably would have, but I already had tickets when I found out).

Like reading your concert story, like eating glass.

I'm still trying to forgive myself for not knowing them when my friends went to see them in Boston back in 2006.

I can actually do this now as well!!! When I was bored on a family trip I was singing it and then playing the instrumental part mentally. Perfect example of a song that just gets better and better. Even when you think it can't, or you think it's over, it does.

Back again...

It's insane how much I'm digging this album. Now loving Banquet, The Pioneers, Here We Are (was this a single, it sounds like it could have been) and Compliments.
