hahahaha

Wooops. I'm in Southern Caifornia, so I pretty much think in Los Angeles-centric terms.

I'm sure they're doing other dates. Go check Live Nation or Ticketbastard.

The only other date listed is Atlanta 8/8. Which begs the question, why aren't they opening for U2 in September?

They'll be around and opening for Coldplay, I wish they would do some shows on their own while they're here... on the East Coast.

Oh, right. I keep inadvertently blocking that piece of information from my consciousness.

These guys are barely known in Australia but after hearing a couple of their songs on YouTube I took a punt and saw them the other day at the V Festival and was really blown away. It was the highlight of the day for me (even better than the energetic Kaisers), not just for their music but also the happy vibe that they wove into the audience right from the start. The lead singer was a pretty charismatic and funny guy.

Now to find out what songs they actually played.. and to check out that cover of Running to Stand Still!

Yeah I saw them at V Fest too.....Grounds For Divorce live

Guy Garvey was on Spicks and Specks the other night, seems like a top bloke. Wicked Mancunian accent. Fun to listen to.

Made a pathetically awesome joke about how he went to the doctor and he told him that he needed to stop masturbating....something along those lines, was quite ridiculous but the delivery was brilliant.

Was there a separate thread for the magical Seldom Seen Kid album?

I think it's all mixed in this thread.

The Fix - I'm not crazy about the other guy singing with him
I agree there is something awkward about the blaring horns and they do make you kinda reach for the volume dial when you listen to them with earphones, but through speakers it's quite tolerable and pleasant. I just love Garvey's vocal in this and damn he is a fine lyricist.

With An Audience With The Pope, i agree about the unremarkability (at least in comparison with the other songs on the album), but gawd that little piano sound that filters in and out throughout the song is gorgeous. Top stuff.

Fix is brilliant. What a bouncy tune, and what a lyrical theme, it's out of this world, from another time, but oh so contemporary. Something very cool and very postmodern about it.....like a murder mystery kind of tune.

What a cracking album. It's brilliant. Shamelessly perfect.

Well, I love Elbow, but One Day Like This is so damn good that I wouldn't care if they haven't released another song at all in their career. That's how much I love this damn song.
