Low - Rolling Thread

weirdly, i was just digging through some stuff in my room and found this little self portrait that mimi (possibly? her name was on the sender label) drew on the package when i ordered the box set from their web store a while back.

Blimey. I was also at that gig - managed to bag seats in the front row of the balcony just to the side of the stage. I’d seen Low a couple of times prior to that; but the Ashford gig was something special. My fondest memories are Dinosaur Act, Pissing (which was intense); and the cover of Let’s Stay Together.

Thankfully I didn’t have to stay in Ashford afterwards - as home is only a relatively short drive from there.

i love that the all purpose low thread has become a roll call for one specific low gig in ashford of all places!


#164

If they have done any better songs then… I can’t hear them.


#165

Just a shame that we didn’t do the roll call beforehand…


#166

i know, right? :frowning:

I’ve a similar dilemma - my wife is due our 3rd exactly 2 weeks after end of the rd and 2 weeks before Julien Baker in London. We’ve already shifted on her ticket for eotr so I’m currently aiming to get there with our 8 year old with fingers crossed (and mobile permanently switched on).

I went to a future of the left gig (by myself) 3 days after the birth of our last one. Lasted about 3 songs before flaking out and getting an early train home.

Everyone’s experiences are different but don’t think my wife got to a gig at least 6 months after either of our previous ones - but it’s all Child dependent on their feeding/sleeping needs. Accessible family who are prepared to help (which we don’t have) also invaluable.

How great a track is Violent Past?
I doubt I’ll ever be in a position to feel comfortable with ranking Low records, but it always shocks me how people discard Drums and Guns.


#169

i am fucking gutted they are playing during our LEJOG trip, fucking hell


#170

We’ve decided not to go now. Shitter, but they’ll come round again


#171

:frowning:


#172

Not right though. TV will be recovering and we’ll both be shattered


#173

I’ve only seen Low at festivals before, so the brudenell will be the first time seeing them at a gig. Does anyone know if they normally have any back catalogue of vinyl at the merch stand?


#174

Yeah they do, normally quite a bit


#175

Drums and Guns is excellent. The vocal panning is quite a jarring production decision, though.


#176

After Friday’s “new Low” confusion in the weekly releases thread, we are saved by genuine “new Low”

#177

Yes!


#178

Great stuff! They’ve been teasing something for a while now.

On first listen the three new tracks are great. I’ll try not to listen to them much more, as I’m really intrigued to hear the LP in full.


#179

Yeah, it’s appears that they are the opening three tracks from the album. Got that Drums And Guns feel to them. Really like them.


#180

Can’t listen yet but I guessed that after they did the organ tour
