    and the Hold Steady too if you're not averse to blue collar rock.

    Thanks for the suggestion... yep Ive been hearing all the hype but Im yet to give them a good listen.
    The problem being my partner in crime for the weekend loves Daftpunk... But I might try twist her arm

    and Yes I might fit in The Hold Steady. Although I only know one song and have no opinion on them as of yet. What exactly is Blue Collar Rock? gimme another example

    Floodzer, the Hold Steady are excellent. I bought their current album on the strength of that one single and a clatter of good reviews and for once I haven't been disappointed. The Springsteen comparisons are valid but they're not just clones either, in fact I'd go so far as to say that their lyrics are superior ( and I say that as a huge Springsteen fan. )

    I'll be checking out CSS also, and evidently I'm the only one on Cluas too uncool to want to see The Killers and Snow Patrol.

    Well as far as I can see they aint clashing with anyone so I might just drop in for a listen thanks.
    I'd like to see The Killers too actually, I watched their Glastonbury set on d'telly last week and was quite impressed. But when I saw them at Oxegen (2 yrs ago?) I had a brutal time and Ive never seen Daft Punk or The National live so I'll probably opt for one of them instead. Snowpatrol are dead to me after this year...

    THE GOSSIP "that's it really. They're the only band I REALLY want to see"
    Is the album very strong? havent got around to getting it yet, loved the single though....great singer.....

    having seen brian wilson at glasto 2 years ago, i strongly recommend ppl to see him, the band are outrageous.......the hold steady too, oh and rufus wainright......it really is a fantastic line up, hope the atmosphere is good though, not in a snobby fashion, just in a "not burning, p*siing on tents, starting row" way.....

    I love their three records, but Standing In The Way Of Control is the best one. Namely, I just want to hear that title track live because I will lose my mind.

    Right, I've decided to check out The Gossip on account of all you f*ckers raving about them ( and also because I plan to see both The Twang and Biffy Clyro before them so might as well stick around. )

    Anyone care to describe who/what they sound like ?

    1300 cribs
    1445 pigeon detectives
    1545 maccabees
    1700 Justice
    1910 kings of leon
    2100 maximo park
    2220 Interpol
    0030 I'm from barcelona

    1250 charlotte hatherly
    1545 Bloc Party
    1930 Bright eyes

    i realised that I'll have to miss Arcade Fire to see Bright Eyes. The decision really has torn me apart, but I saw them in the Olympia, and will prob see them when they come back in Autumn.

    Although I like Bright Eyes on record, I wouldn't go near him live again after the disaster that was Glasto '05.


    p.s. the gossip suck. really awful stuff.
