Recently saw:

Mastodon
Soundgarden
Is this the acoustic tour and have you been yet? I'm going tonight, looking forward to it as it's in the Michael Fowler Centre which is the only place in Wellington with decent acoustics.
Mine is the 12th Dec. Acoustic.
Well he still has a great set of pipes but I couldn't help waiting for the guitars to kick.

Played various songs from Soundgarden, Temple of the Dog and Audioslave which I didn't think translated that well. Fell on Black Days and Like a Stone excepted. Thought Burden in my Hand or 4th of July would've been good but it didn't make an appearance.

The covers were actually the best. Did a pretty good versions of Nothing Compares, The Times They Are a-Changin' & Billie Jean :lol:

He also sung the everything in a completely different time signature so the crowd couldn't really sing along which I felt was a bit of a mistake. OK re-interpret the majority of the songs but give the crowd something.

Anyway concerts are shit now. No smoking, no joints, hard to get a beer... all a bit bland really. The whole point should be to go and dance and sing your tits off and not sit there being a boring plum.

So all in all highly recommended :thumbup:

Off to see You Am I at their spiritual home, the Metro in Sydney again tonight.

Caught them in Newcastle 3 weeks ago - still one of my favourite bands to see live after all these years.

Remember seeing them at the Metro in the mid-late 90s and they did 7 nights in a row at the metro with one matinee performance thrown in.....them were the days :thumbup:

Spent a long weekend at the Queenscliff music festival.
Headlined by Angus and Julia Stone, but also had Augie March, Hoodoo Gurus, Tex Perkins, Lior (playing his 2003 release) and Melbourne Ska Orchestra. But the highlight was some of the smaller acts. They had a thing called the blues train where you caught a train for 30 minutes, with one musician in a carriage, got to the end of the line, changed carriages and had another musician on the way back.

Also saw Cat Empire on Thursday night before we headed down.

Heathen!
(How you spelt sacrilege, not because you didn't get into YAI) ;)

Responsible for some of the great all time riffs in Australian music....and Tim Rogers is the classic frontman!

But with music, its different strokes for different folks as they say :thumbup:

I've tried hard with You Am I, but they just don't work for me. Often they sound like grown men belting out high school tunes. Then they flip it by adding brass and that doesn't click either. Strange band that keeps missing the mark, IMO. But each to their own as L. Ron says.

Aside from a couple of songs I always found You Am I to be fairly pedestrian...

In fact, most of the Australian bands that blew up in the mid 90's via JJJ have not aged well...

Yep.

Never missed the mark with me :D

Almost as good as nickelback

Ps have you listened to their early stufff....the sound as ever album is pretty sweet. I can understand why you would struggle with their later albums but there are some great tunes on that album...coprolalia, forever and easy, Rosedale, berlin chair and the title track sound as ever amongst others. Cracking album from 1993.

Spiderbait are quite good still although they havent released anything for a long time. Saw Jebediah a few months ago and they played Alightly Odway start to finish and it was great. Frenzal are still fantastic.
Although by and large you are right.

i saw them about a year ago. Other than that the only time i have seen them was at Taree maccas

Their bass player died a couple of years ago. Used to smoke cones with him post gig. Poor bastard.

That's the album I'm most familiar with. While there's some ok riffs it just doesn't meld well to me. He's not a very melodic singer and there are even times when he sounds like he's singing a completely different tune to the band.

I also like more melancholy in my rock. YAI are quite uppity rock and just don't have the hooks nor the depth to their sound. Check out Black Rebel Motorcycle Club if you haven't already. They're riffy but with a lot of what YAI are missing.

I like some Tumbleweed :thumbup:

Slim will be talking more of Powderfinger, Jebidiah, Grinspoon, Spiderbait, Killing Heidi, Silverchair.

Mostly shite.

Aus needs Humphrey B. Flaubert & Ron Hitler-Barassi to make a return.

Never got TISM at all.

mates of mine loved them....i was quite the opposite.

Some clever lyrics but to me, the music is the primary consideration and most of theirs sounded atrocious.

I know BRMC well.

Like them. Certainly a different band to YAI

Your description of Why you dont like YAI makes you sound like some sort of pompous art critic :lol:

I like YAI as their music is catchy, easy to listen to and they sing about stuff i relate to.

Cool, pretty sure he's playing solo in QT. Let me know how you enjoy it.
Wasn't too shabby. Venue was as big box so th music gets a bit lost. Kurt and the band were constantly fannying around with the boys in the Sound Deck between songs too. Think he's much better suited to a more intimate venue.
