    I saw Robert Post support Aimee Mann recently and he seemed pretty decent, although I haven't heard his album yet. Also this might give me a chance to finally catch The Kills - depending on who clashes. Looking forward to this weekend now.

    I'm not too sure about the kills myself... granted I saw them back in 2002/3 supporting Jon Spencer Blues Xplosion... wasnt impressed really. Very boring show and too much posing. But thats just my thoughts.

    Just curious about them as I heard two of their tracks and there was alot of hype around their last album. So they're no good?

    Well..... no its not like they're s**te but its all very samey and definitly not the best live show your likely to see. Just basically the two of them singing in each others faces going...'Yea I'm hot..and smoke like 200 cigs a day yeah..' BTW - did you check out Louis XIV yet?

    Not yet Benni. I saw it in Tower though and will pick it up along with a few others. Just completely broke until Friday, luckily I already have a ticket for Adam Green.

    Apart from the ones you mentioned.... Hot Chip are cool - really lo fi funky stuff Be Your Own Pet are good - like the YYY and apparently all only around 17yrs old! Audio Bullys - pure class Human League - just cause you kinda have to! The Rakes - very 'now' but good non the less Clor - Heard only great reports of a few live shows from a journo friend in the UK LCD Soundsystem - they were class at Oxegen Royksopp - great live, blew me away in HQ a few years back They'd be a few others I'll be trying to catch.

    I concur, and I've already seen them. If any of you are at the front for this watch out. Win Butler likes an auld stage dive and he's a big dude.
