fair play to the dublin crowd tonight, we offered up a particularly bleak set tonight and they were extremely kind to us. thank you!
we're no here - slower tempo and huge elongated distortion at the end, including the nintendo ds being used.
tonight was simply immense, and ranks up there with the best 'gwai shows i've ever seen. the setlist was pure fan service for those of us who were there every night, with no less than eight songs that didn't feature on friday or saturday. 'i love you' is a monster live, and 'we're no here' may have been the loudest thing we got all weekend, but the real highlights were the two come on die young tracks, played here back to back, and beautifully. the crowd was meek and appreciative throughout, and stuart said very little indeed. but after a blinding 'you don't know jesus' he took a moment to add yet another thank you to the weekend's litany, and then a quieter 'goodnight'. the band hefted their guitars one last time. what's left in the tank, i thought? they've played all the monoliths. not quite. a snarling, seething 'glasgow mega-snake' tore the doors of the academy.
