Explosions in the Sky

I'll be watching these guys tonight at the Astoria. One of my favourite bands of all time.

Buggerbuggerbuggerbugger! Jealous? Me?


I'm saving up my pass request for God Is An Astronaut in Leeds in April.

Have a good'un, Mnemonic.

Have a good un! Nice, jangly guitar music.

So, Mnemonic, how were EitS? Did I see that Eluvium was the support?

Eluvium were (or was, as it's only one person)quite amazing live, the bass being in places reminiscent of Sunn0))) but both he and Eits suffered from a chattery audience who seemed to think it was OK to talk in all the quiet bits. In fact, one of our party yelled at a particularly noisy group "Oi, there's a band playing on stage" and was well supported by other audience members near us, telling them to shut up, too. I really don't mind the odd remark, whoop or cheer from a live audience, it's part of the atmosphere, but this was way beyond that. Still, we've got our free chalet at the Explosions ATP, so I'll see them again in May.

We strolled along to the venue in the wake of Kieran Hebden and Adem Ilhan, starf*ckers that we are.
