I;m sold - I love that sound. I'll definitely check them out, thanks.

Is the album along the same lines? I dig blaring guitars, feedback, old rock'n'roll vocal lines. I wish there more of it....

So they're playing in NY - but it's sold out. The only other option is a Tuesday night show in Philly....and I'm kinda considering it.

Thursday, January 15:
CBS: Late Late Show With Craig Ferguson: Glasvegas



Finally found a copy in the store this last weekend, US version comes with bonus tracks (listening to the album all the way through for the first time right now). They were giving away the 'A Snowflake Fell' EP as well.

I listened to this the other week, and it didn't really grab me. But I haven't bothered to listen to it again yet, so perhaps I'll find time this week to do so.

So what are all of your favorite songs? While my choices are probably a bit predictable as I know two of them were singles, I'd say these are my favorites as of now:

Geraldine
It's My Own Cheating Heart That Makes Me Cry
Daddy's Gone

Go Square Go - especially the end when it gets sorta ballistic.

I love every song on this album save for Ice Cream Van and Stabbed. The former I'm a bit meh to and the latter I dislike. Tracks 1-7 are as good as anything I've heard.
