The psychedelia is still there, but channelled into more focused songwriting.

The second and third PT songs I'm sending are Blackest Eyes and Trains. They are from 2002's In Absentia and they are the band's two most popular songs. A heavier approach - both atmospherically speaking and in terms of riffs, though not necessarily both together - permeates In Absentia and is well represented by Blackest Eyes, the album opener. I love its main riff. Trains has less of the heaviness, but some lovely guitar work.

Despite its title, Trains was not an initial favourite of mine. Took ages to grow on me. Apparently the band themselves don't think that much of it, and never intended to play it live as they didn't think it would work. But they did it one night just to see how it went, and it took the crowd by storm. It has been the band's concert closer (or second-to-last song) ever since.

My flatmate in 2006 and I recited that to each other ALL THE FUCKING TIME.

Every time we've caught up since I moved to Melbourne, we've recited it too.

It never gets old.

*trysnottohyperventilate*

oh wow. That's some magical undies!

Why the hell is your sister a Mormon?

Why the hell is ANYONE a Mormon? (Nearly unintentionally wrote 'Moron' there.)

Homer: "I have this friend called ... Joey Jo-Jo Junior Shabadoo."
Moe: "Homer, that's the worst name I've ever heard"
*guy runs away crying*
Barney: "Hey, Joey Jo-Jo!"

For so reason i still get called Liam every now and then
Yeah, that's cool. I like it when people call me Ax/Axver offline.

I love how you've somewhat acquired Liam as a nickname.

Someone accidentally called him Liam rather than Ian. I can't recall who. I actually thought it was you!
