HOW GOOD IS THIS!!!??? – NUMBER 16

Just a quickie to let you know the exciting news that ARCADE FIRE will be releasing a documentary video of the making and touring of their seminal album, Neon Bible.

It’s the first ever DVD they’ve released of their live performances and they claim it will give an intimate view of this most private of bands. It will be named Mirror Noir and is available now.

I show a clip from it below of them playing a strange impromptu gig, in an elevator!! It’s a totally gorgeous moment.

They have also confirmed the fantastic news that they are currently working on new material for their much-anticipated third album.

This band are just about as good as it gets live – Exciting, passionate, loud, frenetic, highly energetic, contagiously enjoyable and it really is like experiencing a religious experience. With so many band members on stage singing their hearts out you don’t know where to look.

You will see the violinists singing along to frontman Winn Butler, even when they don’t have microphones near them, simply because they’re so caught up in the moment. You will see Winn’s brother, Will Butler, literally running the length of the stage, instrument in hand, like an over-excited child that’s had too much sugar. You will see them climbing the amps, headbutting gongs and cymbals and swapping instruments. They’ve even been known to turn up in the venue’s foyer, after the gig has finished, to play in a small huddle to the fans as they are leaving.

It’s amazing. Really amazing.

I attach below a clip of one of their live sets from the Coachella Festival.

I can’t wait to catch them live again.

See you back here real soon for more great stuff from The Recommender
