HOW GOOD IS THIS!!!??? – NUMBER 2

OK, time for another tidy little mini-post…

I will be doing this when something, no matter how random, passes past me that I cannot help but share with you. Could be from any genre in any format, just so long as its blindingly brilliant…and this one is!!!

A couple of years ago I saw the band KASABIAN live. Now I’ve been to a shit load of gigs, (13nr Reading Festivals and 4nr Glastonbury’s amongst many, many others), and seeing Kasabian pretty much reset the bar for everything I’ve seen live since. That’s everything, ever.

I cannot recommend an Indie band more than this lot when it comes to a right show. I came across this Youtube post and it took me back there. The way frontman Tom Meighan draws you all in and involves the crowd is one thing, but above all, its the way the whole band seem to give it their all and genuinely get wrapped up in the moment as much as the crowd.

I challenge anyone to give me an example of a better ‘show-closer’ than LSF. Here it is live from a gig last year. Enjoy it – particularly 3mins and 18 secs in when he lets the crowd go for it. Brilliant, just totally brilliant!

    Dude, I have to challenge that (even though LSF is awesome I agree)! You were even there! I’m talking about Flaming Lips at O2 festival. Quite simply the best live show I’ve ever witnessed. All the hits, no filler, fireworks, Wayne in a big balloon, giant floaty spacemen, girls dressed as Santa, Bohemian Rhapsody cover, Yeah, Yeah, Yeah song…need I go on?

    True, that was totally ace live that sunny day, but OK OK we could go on forever if we ain’t careful. Soooo many great highlights over the years from all sorts…Arcade Fire’s ‘Intervention’, Metallica’s ‘One’, Franz Ferdinand’s ‘Take Me Out’, Lemon Jelly’s ‘Rambling Man’, Justice’s ‘DVNO’…blah blah blah to fade…
