What was the significance of "Sak Vide Pa Kanpe" on Win's guitar? I found a Haitian Creole translation for "Sak Vid Pa Kanpe" meaning "An empty bag can't stand on it's own". Apparently, a proverb -- said mostly to people so they can take good care of themselves, eat well in order to survive physically. In other words, they can't be healthy with an empty stomach. What is Win referring to, anything in particular or just our good health?

I taped SNL last night and watching it now. What was the name of the first song they played? I'm completely in love with it and must know the title RIGHT NOW.

(Yes, I have downloaded Neon Bible, but have so far successfully avoided listening to it, prefering to wait to blast the actual CD.)

DAMN. I just found out they're going to be in Portland, but I get "no tickets available" on Ticketbastard. If only I'd known about it sooner!

Oh well. I'll keep checking; maybe tickets will pop up in the future.

They're playing the Gorge (over the mountains from Seattle) at Sasquatch, but no thanks. Festivals, camping ... shudder.

SPIN just published a very favorable review of Neon Bible (to contrast with the RS review).

Hope people won't over-react to this, but there's a bunch of buzz over at Us Kids Know about this comment in NME.

Allegedly, though, Win feels he was quoted out of context, for what it's worth.

And, he has a point, of course.

Win Butler talks exclusively to NME

Arcade Fire have criticised the marketing strategies of band’s like U2, Oasis and The Rolling Stones.

Speaking in the new issue of NME, frontman Win Butler had a go at bands who aggressively force feed their music to fans.

Butler said: "It’s not like we shun success, but at the same time we don’t’ want to shove it down people’s throats. In the UK there’s this kind of rock star competition.

"I don’t know if U2 started it, or The Stones or Oasis but a lot of bands think in terms of: ’I’m going to be the biggest band in the world. Fuck all those bands who’ve got no ambition’. I think that’s a total crock of shit.

"There’s nothing less interesting to me than the idea of marketing the fuck out of something so people are forced to like it. Some bands are just manipulating people to buy music. That’s how 90 per cent of the record industry works! It’s basically the same as selling a fucking toaster or a cruise package."

The SNL performances were really good.

Does anyone know the name of that thing Regine plays during Keep The Car Running? I'm very curious....

The funny thing is I got online right at 10:00, and bought a box seat 20 rows back. Then I checked again every couple minutes, and the seats got worse. Suddenly at 10:10, the 4th row Orchestra popped up and I had to take it. I always assumed the very best seats are sold in order, but this was not the case here.
After 15 minutes, all seats were gone.

Looking at my seat #, it looks like I'm right on the center aisle - even better!
You are so lucky. I had the horrible luck that my internet connection went down right at the onsale time, so I could not get onto ticketmaster. It started working 15 minutes later, at which point they were all sold out. 3rd and 4th row will be amazing.

If anyone has extra tickets they will sell, please contact me: daniel.tonkin@uchsc.edu

Since when is 3 and a half stars an unfavorable review?

In regards to the NME article, you've seen the thread on that in EYKIW, right?

If not, please do go over there for an a) amusing; b) horrifying; c) bizarre; d) all of the above thread.

I wish people in the EYKIW thread maybe read what he actually said? Typical immature and off base reaction in there. There is nothing hypocritical in what he says, and what he does (ie going on SNL a few days later). Nothing at all.

Anyway, if he's not comfortable with bands deciding that hype and size are their only marker of success, and the arrogance of their self fulfilling declarations along the way, then I hope he's comfortable with it when that hype and those declarations are coming naturally from elsewhere, because his band, I suspect, are about to be adorned with all sorts of crowns.

Neon Bible really is something special. I'd read all the hype, particularly in here, so was pretty sceptical, even though Funeral is amazing and one of my favourites of the last few years. I only heard Neon Bible all the way through for the first time yesterday. Was driving to a friends place while it was being played in full on the radio. Pulled up and just sat in the car for 20 minutes outside in the rain listening to the last few tracks. I haven't been looking forward to getting my hands on an album this much in a long, long, long time.
