i'd be telling tales if i claimed to be sure...

i set up a tumblr. pictures are a bit nicer than reading (or not) this blog.
so i'll be posting stuff from over there now mainly, however i'll keep checking my dash on here.
i'm sure the 10 people actually following this won't mind too much. :)

Captain Kirk?

did anyone see the Valencia broadcast last night?
i'm so glad i didn't go out last night as originally planned otherwise i would have missed it.
in fact, i thought i had already missed it but tuned in just in time, perfect!

here's the setlist:
Dance Little Liar
This House Is A Circus
Still Take You Home
Potion Approaching "would you like me to build you a go kart? i've got an old one, its broken but we can salvage the wheels at least..."
Red Right Hand
My Propeller
Crying Lightning
The View From The Afternoon
I Bet You Look Good On The Dancefloor
If You Were There, Beware
Pretty Visitors
Do Me A Favour
When The Sun Goes Down
Secret Door
Fluorescent Adolescent (Alex sung Strange - Patsy Cline in the middle)

he also kept mentioning 'Captain Kirk' where ever possible, which was amazing.

"Would You Like Me To Build You A Go - Kart? i've got an old one, its broken but we can salvage the wheels at least..."

and the Secret Door swings behind them...

whilst listening to Secret Door this afternoon i became very emotional/nostalgic/dissapointed because ticker tape cannons didn't go off :(
it's not that i necessarlily miss the Manchester gig it's that i generally miss seeing my favourite band live. some of that sadness was partially to do with not getting tickets for the Royal Albert Hall gig.
although there is rumour/speculation that there's going to be another small UK tour this year. which i hope is true because in comparison to other countries, they barely did any UK dates in 2009/early 2010.

this weekend i've also managed to (finally) get hold of a load of Milburn demos/unreleased tracks etc.. my personal favourite is their cover of the Birds Of A Feather theme tune. ♥

i hope everyone's had a good weekend.
