Heard of this band but haven't listened to much.

Saw them at the Koko in May on their (yet another) return. Thet've returned a bit like the Pumpkins in a way with a new guitarist and a new female bass player (who happens to be Ringo Starr's grandaughter).

To be honest they sounded just as good as they did 10 years ago and the setlist for a band which has only released one album so far was pretty damn good!


London City Lights
War of the Worlds
The Gentle Art of Choking
Grounded
Moodswings
It's So Damn Easy
Falling Off the Floor
Under the Wheels
Cast Aspersions
Windows & Walls
Get Lucky (Daft Punk cover)
Kohlstream
Cemented Shoes
Spirit Still Remains
Infantile
In the Air Tonight (Phil Collins cover) (snippet)
Ode to the Red Queen
(piano version)
Vapour Trails
Taprobane
Losing Touch
The Agonies and the Ecstacies

Encore:

Wicked Game (Chris Isaak cover)
This Time ("acoustic" on setlist, but wasn't)
Alpha Waves
Always: Your Way
Tongue Tied
C.O.R. (Critic Orientated Rock)

Oh cool, I was there too. Didn't think I'd meet any local MV fans on netphoria. Are you going to their Halloween show?

Haven't got my tickets yet (still awaiting confirmation from others to see how many) but yes, I'll be there. Never been to Heaven under the arches, had tickets for two gigs previous which I couldn't get to.

I didn't like it at first but it grew on me. Took me a while to realise that its more about hooks and songs than riffs and big-arms moments. I described it to a friend as "Josh writing Beatles songs" and I mean that in a good way. Dunno if I'd call it a "great" album in terms of like will people be talking about it 20 years from now but it was particularly solid.

New QOTSA is good but then they've always been consistent.

My Vitriol would have been one of the biggest bands of the 2000s if they had followed up their debut album sooner. They basically fused Foo Fighters-esque punk rock with ethereal shoe gaze, but with superior dynamics and guitar interplay. It's simply some of the most otherworldly, beautiful rock music ever made.

At first I was going to say Black Rebel Motorcycle Club - Baby 81 but I think Like Clockwork is just as strong and also it's going to reach a wider audience and so it's going to leave more of a lasting impression.

Totally agree. I don't think I've ever heard a band so effortlessly cool as BRMC. Great, borderline genius guitarists / songwriters.

Finally someone here who shares my enthusiasm for BRMC. I can't say enough good things about their debut album, Baby 81 or Beat the Devil's Tattoo. The most overlooked under-appreciated American band of the last decade.

I only own the debut self titled and take them on on your own. Where should I go next? The two mentioned above?

well, put it this way. for a band to give themselves a name like that, they would have to know they were worth it. and they are.

Baby 81 is the same level of quality as the first album. It's also their most accessible album. Take Them On On Your Own sounds too much like Oasis for me to take seriously.

If you like Baby 81 check out Beat the Devil's Tattoo. It's kind of a mix of Baby and the first one. It's catchy but also moody and quite dark at times.

"most accessible" is only applicable to bands who are niche acts, not BRMC

why do you insist on using that phrase for every single band, that doesn't mean something like "best album"

here's an example of how to use it: Loaded is the Velvet Underground's most accessible album, because the songs are tightly constructed pop tunes that still utilize the VU's distinctive and pioneering sound.

here's an example of how not to use it: Thriller is Michael Jackson's most accessible album, because it's packed with popular hits.

But BRMC play shoegaze so they kind of are a niche act aren't they? I mean they also play garage rock and blues rock but shoegaze is a big part of their sound. One of the reasons BRMC never took off in America like they did in the UK is because so much of their sound is taken from late 80s / early 90s British bands.
