I thought they would be your thing.

Anyway as I wrote their bio it's my duty to say get your ass in to gear, it's not like I've never mentioned them on ORF :P

I might be listening to the wrong songs to be fair, didn't dislike them they just didn't grab me as anything special.

What tracks/album would you recommend? I'll have a listen after TomWhales' playlist.

You'd probably prefer the polished sound of Fortress more, I think the best start would be Palms Read on Fortress, but skip to the pre-gap interlude at the end, then lead it into Limb From Limb. A bit complex I know, but it's awesome together! I'll give you some better recommendations another time. But let's be honest, if THA were happy to support them, they must be good :P

Which stage will they be playing on do we reckon? Personally hoping for one the tiny ones, it'll be a great atmosphere. Saw them at Manchester Club Academy, which is basically a store cupboard, and they're such a surprisingly laid back band for the energy that goes into their music. Rody is a funny bastard too :P

Very much looking forward to seeing them again which the new material. They put on a great show and Rody is hilarious.

I hope they play Tapestry and Sex Tapes from the new album.

When I saw them they played C'est La Vie, Dunsel, and The Reign of Unending Terror from the new album. But they're not the kind of band to stick to the same setlist. I'm hoping for Hair-Trigger myself :)

Question is are they still playing Limb From Limb? It's their best song so I hope so. I haven't seen them since August 09.

They didn't when I saw them, but you never know. I think I said in an earlier post that they don't often stick to the same setlist.
