They had a lot of energy.
They’ve got a lot going on.
They’re very tight.
They have a great look.
They have a lot of potential.
I like the singer’s voice.
I see what you mean about them sounding like Radiohead; I always felt that Thom Yorke should be more subdued.
Yeah, I was going to say that. Lo-fi, but heavy without being emo.
Oh, way better than the Strokes.
The guitarist … I want to say he reminds me of early Robert Quine.
I liked the cover of “Rock and Roll.” Nobody does that. It’s cool how they slowed it down somewhat. You could really hear the words, which is so important for that song.
The bassist was really laying down some bottom on those songs. I like how he plays it up around his chest. Probably easier to move around that way, I would imagine; but I liked that he just stayed still.
Well, yes, they did have some problems there in the middle. But this club sucks. The sound system is terrible here; the band that opened was lucky.
When the singer was talking about his lactose intolerance, you could tell the audience was really getting behind him. That’s gotta be rough to have to live with that as an artist. And to write a song about it? Genius.
Oh, the drummer was great. And he’s self-taught? Wow.
Yeah, I’ll definitely sign the mailing list.
I’m really glad I saw the show. I’ll have to check out their next gig.
Oh, yeah. You can tell they’re gonna get signed. It’s a just a matter of time ….
