anyone else with me?

Don't get me started. I can't stand any more f'n' foo fighters on my radio. Seriously, I really think most of the stuff that's getting rammed down my throat by rock and pop stations these days is pure rubbish. Editors is another band I'd seriously consider executing if it were the only practical way of shutting them up. I'm quite sure that even if nobody at the radio station liked a track they'd still take it through the rotation cycle.

Biffy Clyro are also worth a mention.


I know the guys who tracked that record.  I hadn't even heard of it when they played it at their studio, but it sounded really well done.  Couple stellar songs.

Best, Marcel

From what I can gather it was the first album where they had a sizable budget, Andy Wallace mixing etc.

I like it, but imo sounds like they were pushing a little to hard for mass market appeal.

Their earlier stuff is great though. All mixed and produced by Chris Sheldon, who bizarrely mixed the only foo album I still rate.

Out of interest, who tracked it/ where?

Garth Richardson and Ben Kaplan.

I don't know where, I suspect Garth's place (The Farm) here in Vancouver, but may not have been.

I'll check out the other albums...  Which is your pick?

Its a difficult choice between The Vertigo of Bliss and Infinity Land. Perhaps the latter is a little more complete and quicker to get into.

While your at it check out Effloresce by Oceansize. My favorite album to plug, in the vain hope that this band will get at least some recognition.  

The Uk has some quality bands at the moment. Unfortunately you would never realise this judging from what gets playlisted.  Crying or Very Sad

"they seem to be the last remaining straight rock band."

i suppose that's why they don't believe in aids testing...

Not the best I've ever seen -- I'm a lot older than you -- but really, really good, and no bullshit about them.  I think I've seen them 3 times, all in 3K-ish venues, and they killed every time.  Glad you had fun.

i really liked how they brought a small club feel to an arena.  they were just a rock band, not trying to do any theatrical anything.  they just rock, and let their songs do the work.

they played for 3 hours as well.  and never let up or even looked the least bit fatigued.

With Foo backline gear - it bet the Foos were somewhere in Canada, and Alex and Geddy joined them for a song or two. Neal lives in Los Angeles, so is far away from the other two, who are close friends.
