I was blasting "This Modern Love" in my car the other night, before I crashed it , and I just keep being blown away by Matt's drumming.

To my untrained ear, the time signature changes at least 2 or 3 times during that song, AND the drum pattern changes at least 3 - 5 times during verses, bridges and choruses. God, I mean I know I don't read music or play or anything . . . . but his drumming is just so frickin' AMAZING to me!

A simple ballad like "This Modern Love" and Matt makes it SO much more interesting with just his drumming!

The concert last night was great! The crowd went wild! I must confess I don't know them that well but everybody around me seemed to know all the lyrics! It was amazing! And Kele ran on the b-stage (and I was pratically smashed because I was on the second row from the b-stage) and everybody went crazy!
Unfortunately they didn't play I Still Remember, but that's ok it was fantastic anyway...

I'm tellin' ya - I've been to about 70 - 80 concerts in my day, and their show in San Diego, at that small, intimate little venue, was one of the Top 5 shows I've ever been to!


And Atomic - YAY! I'm really happy for you, but also a little jealous! I'd definitely go see them a 3rd time if I got the chance.

BTW, the estimate on my car came in today, $7,600!!!

Well, all I've heard so far is the AWITC B-side collection which I downloaded from here. But I really like what I hear. I would love to see them live! I looked and they're playing Montreal in September but as part of the Osheaga Festival. They'll be in Toronto at the end of September so maybe I'll catch that show.

If anyone has Silent Alarm and/or AWITC can you please send me a link via PM? Thanks!

I don't listen to SRXT anymore. It's too nasty and depressing, so the album ends at Sunday for me....

We-ellll...

I'll send you a couple great tracks from each album, as I think it's unfair to upload both of them in full. If this was Zeppelin or something I'd upload the whole discography without batting an eyelid. But Bloc Party are my favourite "new" band... I want to see them make some money so that they can stick around and make more records!

Ok I get it. Maybe I should change my name to Canadiens1122 or something?

Kidding, kidding

I understand what you mean and I fully intend to support them. Send me whatever you can—but I already have Banquet.

Thanks Steph!

they remind me of... I don't know. I've never heard anything like Song for Clay (Disappear Here). The backing vocals on that are so strange and amazing and the guitar part during "East London is a vampire..." is not expected in such a rock song

Oh, I didn't send him Silent Alarm. I was just joking with him, I wasn't being serious.

I'm uploading your zip file right now!
