The London show is 10, but I don't know the cost of the others ...because they don't either!

That London show is the Tuesday after BigSexyLand. So just when we should have recovered...!

They're a bit underwhelming live. A bit beardy, earnest and sweater wear-y. And the main bloke indulges in totally uneccessary Robin Guthrie-itis.

That said other earnest bearded men in sweaters in the audience thought it was much better than I did.

Is this why you shaved your own beard off, Carcass - as a protest against Earnest-ism? ;-)

I suppose Robin Guthrie *was* an early indie beard-revivalist, wasn't he? Well spotted!

I thought you might have liked them, actually, but I guess it's just that one song, then? Personally, I was a bit late getting into them, but was pleasantly surprised when I did, this year.

i'd go if they promised not to do any songs off the new album.

They're a totally different proposition live, I only really like 'In The Morning' and the name's a bit of a misnomer to put it mildly. Senior Men doesn't sound as good though, does it?

I saw them at Dingwalls tonight, and they were really, really very good. I quite like the way they were a bit more rocky live than on record. I didn't really get the 'earnest' thing. It was quite intense I suppose, but I mean, not earnest like Aereogramme or something.
The support band were Domino's new signing Bonde Do Role, who were so many different kinds of shite it was quite hard to keep up.

Junior Boys were amiable enough live, but like Carcass says, it felt very earnest. It sounded like some quite good synth pop played quite well. They really missed the crispness of the record, that cutting sonic edge.

was it Carcass who claimed, on another thread, that the songs on their new album sounded no more remarkable than run-of-the-mill Depeche Mode remixes? so far i've only played it through once, in the car. can't say it made the journey seem quicker but i did manage to traverse half the length of the M6 without getting cross at any other drivers.

Yeah, it's definitely got a "sensible motorist" vibe, that album.

I can't be bothered with it myself. I love Last Exit though.

I saw them live in Brighton earlier this week. I was worried it would sell as I hadn't bought tickets beforehand, but in the end it was hard to tell how good they were as there was only 39 people there (yes I counted). I like both the albums quite a lot, but I thought they didn't have enough poise (or as Derek says, the crispness of the sound) live to achieve the intimacy of the first record. I thought the rocky element mackstress refers to was a bit half hearted to be honest and didn't suit the material.

It's a bit harsh, but the gorgeous vocals on record didn't work as well being delivered by a post-graduate Biology student dressed for helping his mate move house. At least the other one's beard helped give him an electro professor look, confirmed by his Kraftwerk T-shirt.

When I saw them at Cargo, there was a weird atmosphere too. Half absolute adoration from the dedicated fan-boys, the rest impatient indifference from thirsty bar-goers.
