    And the moment will come when composure returns
    Put a face on the world, turn your back to the wall
    And you walk twenty yards with your head in the air
    Down the Liberty Hill, where the fashion brigade
    Look with curious eyes on your raggedy way
    And for once in your life you've got nothing to say
    And could this be the time when somebody will come
    To say, "Look at yourself, you're not much used to anyone"

    How many times have you seen 4 live?
    I'm sad to say that I haven't as of yet.

    What is your favourite song by 7?
    William, It Was Really Nothing

  • The Twilight Sad on The Terrace

    17 Jul 2007, 18:24 by Alkini

    There isn't a whole lot to be said about The Twilight Sad this past Friday on the Terrace, but it wasn't a bad time, albeit less than an hour of music. I've never really gotten in to the whole shoegaze thing, but these guys are warming me up to it, especially with the live show. The guitar was noisy and droning, the bass just kicked back, and the vocals were often lost under the huge drums.

    Maybe I got caught up in the gaze and missed it, but did they not play Cold Days from the Birdhouse? I guess they were saving the special treat for all you Pitchfork Fest-goers. I'm pretty sure this show on the Terrace was just a “hey, since we're in the area” warm-up for the festival anyway.

    James Graham, the singer, spent most of the show with his back to the crowd or hanging his head. He'd occasionally work up the energy to properly belt out the loud lines. When the young woman with a camera showed up at the stage, however, he promptly turned 90 degrees towards her and assumed his best shoegaze-rock-pose.
