Seriously, no posts since February? I figured that maybe with Syd and Seth being in the 8 G band there'd be a little spillover of love from TV land. Anyhoo, had no idea about that at all. Seth is unrecognizable on TV (facial hair and nice clothes?!?) and it was only when there was a close-up of Syd's face that I got suspicious and looked it up. And Eli from GvsB is even less recognizable what with all of that smiling. Where's the rage and venom!?!?! I seriously hope we get to hear more LSF in due time. Still one of the best shows I've ever seen (other than the Iron Maiden powerslave tour when I was 13 years old and there was fireworks and fire-spewing mummies and everything. And Twisted Sister opened...)
I can't get into their newer stuff that much, but I still think their 7" releases are some of the greatest post-punk of all time. Back when they first came out, I was floored that a band could put out so many amazing consecutive 7"s.
Nah, maybe because of Tim Harrington's voice's sounds crazy, loud, high and full of energy. that's why I think it's similar with Ben Kowalewicz's vocal. Especially with Dirty Knails, Appetites tracks. It was like Leo Tolstoy, Alan Moore or Zach Galifinakis borrow vocal apparatus from Ben Kowalewicz's. If you know what I mean
They're still good live, I just feel like since Let's Stay Friends their albums don't really capture their intensity for me. Still one of my favorite bands, so I'm hoping their new stuff will grow on me.
