Yep, it's clapping. You know how I mentioned the band didn't think it would work live? The clapping is what made it work. The audience got totally into it.

The performance of it on the Arriving Somewhere DVD is hilarious. Steven Wilson snaps a guitar string and they don't edit it out. He jokes with the crowd about how they will edit it out ("We were doing so well! We'll edit that part out. Where was I standing?"), and it's actually one of the best moments of the show.

Well, Ax, if those first 3 songs are anything to go by, it's fair to say I'm hooked! Thank you!

I love that sort of stuff!

The second of the three songs I'm sending is Even Less. It's the opening track from the Stupid Dream album. This is actually only the first half; the full version is 14 minutes long and featured solely on the rarities collection Recordings. I'd send that if the file size weren't so huge, but the first half is quality.

My favourite part, unfortunately, is on the second half:
Fuck you and your book too
You can have it back
When I'm gone these songs will be my tracks
I had a stupid dream that I could change things
But I'm a martyr to even less ...


The original demo version of the song, which I am trying desperately to find, has this alternate chorus that I love:
God is worshipped for doing nothing
And Jesus was crucified for even less

And the third I'm sending is Lazarus, from 2005's Deadwing. I remember when I first heard it, I played it on repeat about 20 times in a row. It's just absolutely gorgeously beautiful.

I often describe it as being "something like what Coldplay would make if they were actually a good band".

I have that song.

Ashley sent it to me. She's ruining my anti-indie cred

One of my friends from a messageboard that no longer exists is right into progressive rock and metal. He introduced me to Dream Theater and Porcupine Tree.

I've kinda moved on from Dream Theater, at least from their post-1997 stuff, but Porcupine Tree's become my favourite band.

Holy shit, I've broken the 23 posts per day barrier! Last time somebody posted my daily rate, I think I was going at about 22.7.
