Alright, so I'm going to see Bloc Party twice in September. The first will be when they headline Day 2 of the Osheaga Music Festival here in Montreal. On September 29, I'll be traveling down to Toronto to meet some friends and then we're driving down to London to check them out. We got GA so hopefully we'll be as close to the stage as possible.

Atomic Bono, you'd be even more of my hero than the last time you uploaded rare tracks! Please do.

Also, archive.org has a bunch of tracks from when they were Union, like Chinese Burn, check it out.

SRXT is stunning, both in terms of melody and lyrical content. I was having a rough time not too long ago, and I remember sitting on the bus back home with SRXT on repeat, leaning my head against the window pane. I must have listened to it at least twenty times before I had to change to something else. Surprised I didn't end up bawling right there on the bus, it's just such a depressing song. But depressing in a good way, you know?


Walking in the countryside
It seems that the winds have stopped
Tell my mother I am sorry and I loved her


That chokes me up every time!
this song just hit me

so sad

Question (if anyone knows): Does Kele sing "Blue Light", or is it Gordon?


It doesn't sound like Kele to me, but I wasn't sure if Gordon ever sang lead vocals.

Yeah, they play it live. Prolly not every show but...I'm pretty sure they've played every AWITC song live, and it probably gets played a lot more than On and Where is Home.

The more I listen to it, the more I realize "Uniform" is the best off of AWITC, but the whole thing is epic. Too bad people were dumb and wrote it off because it was different (read: an improvement on) Silent Alarm.

Big Grin I assume you will be right up front

Hey A-B.......

I purchased tickets for the show!

I'm not a big fan of that room in the Murat (saw Sufjan Stevens there last year), but looking forward to the show!

Sunday seems to be a little underappreciated, and I suppose it is one of the less spectacular tracks on the album, but it's a great lyrical sentiment.

The morning after a night on the piss, watching the Under 15's playing football in the park in St Leonards. What a splendid image and what an easy-to-relate-to circumstance.

I adore Uniform. It's probably my favourite off the album as well. I love it live...when it gets all heavy at the end I rock the fuck out

I dunno if I've ever been in the Egyptian room, though I've seen numerous shows at the Murat.

Whatcha got? GA? I'm gonna try to be at the venue an hour or two early to get right up front
