hah... I still hope U2 take them on a tour as a support band.. now how great would that be!
btw does anyone remember...was it Adam who was talking about the new great band called Bloc Party back in 2004? I think it was him.. Heard it in some interview during the How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb promo tour.
In fact that's how I got to know Bloc Party back in 2004.. U2 talking about them back then..

My tone-deaf ass gave it my all on 'Banquet' at my best friend's karaoke party Saturday night. Did I mention I am so tone deaf!!!!! (No, I'm not posting the YouTube video of me singing it.)

So every time the topic of 'Banquet' comes up, my best friend always says it sounds just like Spandau Ballet's 'To Cut A Long Story Short'. Here's a side-by-side (or top-and-bottom) comparison. I think my friend's crazy on this one. Whaddya guys think????

YouTube - Bloc Party - Banquet

I don't hear it at all

I mean at a stretch you could probably throw that "she don't think straight" part over the riff

Not really. There's God Bless, Bloc Party., but it's not really that good.

They need a kick-ass dvd!

Well, I didn't want to freak you all out . . . so I went.




I finally got my 'Ion Square'.

They were, of course, completely absofuckinglutely fantastic. That Hollywood crowd was off the friggin' hook. It was just insanely awesome.

I never understand why a lot of bands will play here when they're nobodies to huge crowds, and then WON'T come back to play when they're somebodies. I saw them on their initial US tour here, and it was packed. They haven't been back since.
