Good Weather For Airstrikes This U.S. blog are currently offering up Bloc Party's set at last summer's Leeds Festival...follow the white rabbit.
Incidentally, GWFAS is BLOG PARTY's favourite blog...it's always a very enjoyable read and, unlike a lot of blogs who are all talk and no action, offers up copious amounts of mp3s and videos to feast upon. Other recent posts include a download of the complete Phones (Paul Epworth) remixography and a preview of upcoming indie flick, 'The Science Of Sleep' (directed by the genius that is Michel Gondry).
I attended the Bloc Party Show in Berkeley after hearing all kinds of hype, and being totally blown away by their incredible CD.
This show sucked. If they cannot play their own instruments, they should offer those who truly want to see a live band perform, a discount, because I was robbed, and pissed that I gave these fuckers over 50 cents.
Seriously worse than the Insane Clown Posse, or the Village People at the couny fair...A joke, that really has much to prove. The riches will come and go in this business, and my donation is cut off. Sick, typical "studio musician rip off" "Performers" my ass... Just for the record, I am going to stick w/ the real quality - Kasabian, Kaiser Chiefs, and The Killers.
As unpopular as it might sound, this rip-off needs to be experienced by all, at no charge...you'll want a refund for the time you spent in misery, after you spend 2 hours watching fake performers, with a lack of a talent and desire, over market, promote, and studio produce your sorry asses into buying an over priced ticket to a shitty show.
Save your dough, stay at home, and wack it, you'll certainly have a better time.
Bloc Party: Save us time and money and please go away.
