I just remembered this song existed. I had it on a mix CD that had this and Billy Bragg - A New England back-to-back and they are burned in my head together
the lyrics have everything, leaving home town, patty hearst, skulls and heart tattoos.
This song is great because it follows on of my favorite song structures. Three minute crescendo, then unleash for the last minute without ever changing chord progression or melody, just adding intensity. This is also a classic LCD Soundsystem move ie. "all my friends"
this song is....good?
I don't like the way they mix the vocals at the beginning, they aren't doing harmony they are just singing the same thing at the same time
They drop Conor in the mix and start harmonizing after the first verse. The second 2/3rds i like a lot!
also this is exactly how i want my hair.
Thursday used to be a guilty pleasure for me because there was like a weird 5 month period when shit like this and the used was on TRL, but fuck that this owns.
They might be literally the worst band I've ever seen live though
