it really shat me when they used that thin red line sample in one of their songs. i never got over it.

coachella, end of april

KillerKitty  said about 8 years ago:

the last track on the new album "so long lonesome" is so beautiful.

When the drums kick in at the end in nearly brings me to tears everytime I hear it.

whosgotthecrack?  said about 8 years ago:

anok - you don't have to love them, but they will always remind me of this time in my life when i had just bought the second album and i went on a little day trip to burntisland just north of edinburgh and walked around with this amazing album playing on my discman while i looked out at the great grey ocean and watched the seabirds swirling and tottering about

i needed that day and i loved that record

and then a few days later i saw them live in glasgow

... hence whosgotthecrack? + explosionsinthesky = love

nicko_mcbrain  said about 8 years ago:

i love them, wgtc - your hand in mine, first breath after coma, the only moment we were alone all are mind-blowingly beautiful. to me, they're like a more obvious mogwai.

but then sometimes i don't want that heavy scots malaise hanging over everything.

i almost saw 'friday night lights' just to hear the soundtrack...

switchbladesisters  said about 8 years ago:

gave my copy to infinland... he loves this stuff.

whosgotthecrack?  said about 8 years ago:

have you got the first album nicko?

I loved that as well...

i have got to get the new album soon

adamdmills  said about 8 years ago:

i used to love them. now i'm not so sure.

i'm quite keen to hear the new album.

beertickle  said about 8 years ago:

i found them rather boring and unimaginative live. i prefer them on cd.

adamdmills  said about 8 years ago:

those who tell the truth... is beautiful. the earth... lost its sheen after some time.

switchbladesisters  said about 8 years ago:

I would've given it to you if I'd known, WGTC!

hiponion  said about 8 years ago:

switchy - giver of great albums.

whosgotthecrack?  said about 8 years ago:

adam - track three on the newie is pretty bloody good

classic explosions

aww switchie, that's okay, you can give it to me for my birthday! ;) hehe

Postcard From 1952
Greet Death
Your Hand in Mine
Let Me Back In
The Birth and Death of the Day

mrmagoo  said about 3 years ago:


Good show! I like how they play flat out for an hour and a half or so with little to no break between songs, and then they are gone

I think they played First Breath after Coma?

MelonHCST  said about 3 years ago:

Yeah, think so too.
Great show and totally agree about going non stop and then not pissing around with an encore.

SympatheticJuror  said about 3 years ago:

No First Breath After Coma.

After The Birth and Death of the Day
Yasmin the Light (face melting)
The Moon is Down (I think)

ladyinred  said about 3 years ago:

My favourite wasn't played... but eh. can't play them all, and i got to see them two nights in a row so i'm pretty fucking happy.

Your Hand in Mine = Bliss.

Wonky  said about 3 years ago:

I shot it for FL in Sydney last night. Was a pretty amazing show.

MelonHCST  said about 3 years ago:

Fairly positive they did play YHIM in Melbourne

Sunnyboyz  said about 3 years ago:

They were fucking incredible in Brisbane last night.

GrantleyBuffalo  said about 3 years ago:

Fairly positive they did play YHIM in Melbourne

I don't think they did, but I'm a forgetful fuck. And some of their songs sound a little same-y, let's be honest...

(I love 'em lots, though)

nicko_mcbrain  said about 3 years ago:

They were brilliant at The Forum, a venue that can often sound shit/be hard to fill with your 'presence' if you have none (hi, Best Coast!)

And they were all playing cheapy guitars and using really simple effects.

No substitute for good playing.

flukazoid  said about 3 years ago:

Secret gig at the Great Northern in Byron Bay before Splendour

Arthurly  said about 3 years ago:

Their new film clip is a genuine work of fucking art.
