Went to a festival last Saturday to see Franz Ferdinand (again) with some friends... The show was awesome but the opening band, *Art Brut*, pwned Franz. AB is fucking amazing and is worth listening. They're hilarious. I'd been told they were nice by a co-worker but had no idea how good they would be. They've definitely gained another fan after that gig.

They've only released a CD called Bang bang and Rock & Roll. I talked to the leader singer, Argos and he's just cool.

Radio 4 is another band that played adn is also nice and worth listening.

we formed a band, we formed a band.

hahaha, that line was in my head the other day and I couldn't remember what band it was.

what kind of music do they make?

Cybermears, yes. That was the best part of the show. It seems like he's having a discussion with an invisivle friend or something hahaha.

Lars, it happened to me after the show. *We formed a band , look at us , we formed a band* is way catchy.

Buddyholly, I don't know how to explain what kind of music. But I suggest that you listen to Formed a band, My little brother just discovered rock & roll, Emily kane and the funniest *A good weekend*.

They started the show with a song Called *Formed a band*. I invite you guys to guess the song they play (a little bit) before.


*Bang Bang Rock & roll*


*Blame it on the trains*

More than a year later, here I am.

I'm going to see them again tomorrow at the 9:30 Club with another band called The Hold Steady.

Again, I suggest that you guys listen to them.


This Formed a band video is awesome. Better than the previous one I posted.

You'll like them!

I just wanted to say that this was a great show and Art Brut is fucking weird, but in a good way.

Ah God, I can't stand Art Brut. I just hate them.

I saw them perform Direct Hit on Late Night and... I just sat there. I just watched. It was horrible, and I can't get that song out of my head. Not because it's catchy, because it's so annoying.

Art Brut has also become an inside joke between my friends and I.

Btw, Cammie/anyone interested, the Hold Steady/Art Brut show was recorded by NPR and is available for streaming:


Fucking great show.

I liked the music but the guys accent made me want to kill myself.

11-21-2007, 11:27 PM
I love them.

That's all I'm able to say.

ps:Thanks, Mike.

Bump because this shit is AWESOME.

I downloaded Bang Bang Rock And Roll today and it's so... I don't even know. I like it, though.

i only know the song bang bang rock and roll from saints row, and i recall it being rather annoying.
