My Vitriol


#1342

I don’t think you’re properly engaging with the spirit of this thread.


#1343

Hiring a producer was stretch goal #156. Would’ve kicked in when they crowdfunded the GDP of a mid-tier African state.


#1344

Well… Did anyone go to the Edinburgh gig? I want a review.


#1345

Reckon this sold worse than a Trail of Dead solo tour would have done, and that’s why they’ve pulled out. Tbh


#1346

Was always a strange billing. Had several friends umming and ahhing saying, “Well… I do want to see TOD… but then I’d have to watch My Vitriol.”


#1347

Curious to find out whether anyone actually went to this. Ended up getting a refund and suspect a lot of other people did the same.


#1348

A Twitter search tells me they cancelled a Manchester show but didn’t mention it in their announcement? Someone had to DM them to find one.


#1349

Looks like the Leeds gig went ahead. Complete with electric drumkit, two guitars and… a cup of tea?


#1350

Maybe Som was collecting loose change from the crowd?


#1351

I don’t like giving my money directly to Som. He’s only going to go and blow it on Facebook Likes. I’d rather give it to a charity that helps indie middleweights.

I went to see them in Coventry on Saturday and it was massively disappointing. The sound was really weak and synthentic and all crowd interaction felt awkward.

I also really didn’t like that they were selling t-shirts for £15 that you can buy for £9.99 on their website.

I wish I’d managed to see them back in the day rather than this shadow of their former selves.


#1353

Sound could be down to the Colly though…

Big question…were the drums electric?


#1354

Yeah electric drum kit triggering the bass backing track.


#1355

I was never a fan but must have seen them three or four times first time around. They use to tour with a band called Seafood a lot as well as Asian Dub Foundation.


#1356

Ah no way!


#1357

Yeah, I remember seeing them with Seafood. I think Seafood also supported Ash about a month later too.


#1358

Going to see them tomorrow night. Bit disappointed there’s no bass player or drum kit to be honest. I was under the impression that the guitarist from Bloc Party was filling in on bass?

I don’t know why, but this username / post has really tickled me
