Post break-up sex is pretty good, but its verse to chorus ratio is off by about 50%.
Opted to see Paloma Faith instead at Latitude this weekend. Figured Vaccines tent would be crammed, plus Paloma’s normally madder than a box of frogs so thought she’d be worth seeing for that reason alone 🙂
Best formerly-unknown-to-me bands at Latitude were;
– Foster the People
– And who can forget Danny Fontaine & The Horns Of Fury’s ode to Guybrush Threepwood
Like em and was mightily pissed off when we missed them supporting the Arctic Monkeys in Sheffield, because my mates wanted another pint in some dingy back street shithole of a pub, despite my protestations…
They look and sound like a band thought up in a record company boardroom. Seriously though, how much more can be done with a four piece guitar group like them? It’s all been done before, and better, 30 years ago
I have actually seen them live, and they were OK. Significantly, the crowd were much more responsive to Beirut who came after them, and were singing along with a lot of their songs. The Vaccines are just another in a very long line of punkpop guitar bands with nothing much of any significance to say but make a pleasant enough racket for drunk kids to throw themselves around to. I’ve seen many like them come and go over the years, I don’t expect them to get much past a third album.
They were second on a five band billing, it wasn’t through choice I saw them.
