    Y'see that would be the intelligent thing to do. Also it kind of ends in the middle of a sentence. LOL

    Unfinished, but it might give you an idea.
    quote:
    The previously named HQ, now renamed and opened as ‘Spirit’ on Abbey St, was home to one of the most intriguing concerts so far this year. Múm, (pronounced Moom) comprise a pair of pixie-faced twins and two young men who are more Sigur Ros than Sugarcubes. (Trivia fans might be interested to know the girls are featured on the cover of Belle & Sebastian’s ‘Fold your hands child, you walk like a peasant”.) The audience was packed with earnest young men in long-sleeved T-shirts, and by the time the first notes sounded each of them would have fallen in love a hundred times over with the musicians. There was an expectant buzz in the place, the audience well-mannered and quiet. We stared gloomily into our drinks, waiting, unaware that the band were already among us. They appeared without a word or any acknowledgement to the waiting crowd. Moving quietly, picking up instruments apparently at random, they played a few notes got bored and moved on. Muted vocals mixed with glockenspiels, guitars and cello’s to create a dark ice-encrusted atmosphere. We were floating on a glacier and the northern lights were spitting fire. Time passed, immeasurable. Two minutes or twenty, the music expanded, splintered, pushed up new continents of sound. Voices like bells floated above the cracked ice of keyboards, while in the background the deep throated foghorn of cello and moog combined to provide us with a foothold.
