Los Campesinos A Different Take…

This was left as a comment by my old pal anonymous… The person is commenting on a negative comment about my post on Los Campesinos at Webster Hall August 4th, 2009. One word of defense: I may be a lousy reviewer but how does that make me pretentious?

Well said last anonymous. Smith Westerns were embarassing to say the least, their guitarist was moving bizzarely on stage as if he had to piss, even going so far as to do one of those ‘orgasm’ solos where he closes his eyes and a light comes on him. i felt bad for them, because, compared to Girls, who i liked, they looked like exactly what they are: an inexperienced teenage band. I thought Girls was good, especially considering I know none of their songs, (though thats to be expected seeing as they dont have an LP out at the moment) Girls were professional, and did in fact get the crowd going a little, though I do agree that the final acoustic closer was a strange choice, as people definitely lost interest.

Now to LC! I had seen the first 15 minutes or so of the Bowery show in februrary, and it was fantastic, with lots of energy. I feel like this energy was back, but in a lesser form. Yes it was their first official tour date, so I wouldn’t expect everything to run extremely smooth, but damn were they good. Gareth was very much into the show, I have no idea what this review was on about, he was jumping and screaming and even engaging with the crowd. May I also say that Ollie is not in fact their guitarist, but their drummer. Tom is the guitarist who said it was nice to get NYC out of the way, and fye, he was drunk (read the blog!)I would expect a real ‘fan’ to know this though.

Iman’s review is extremely pretentious, and makes it sound as if though LC! came out and barely moved on stage. Poor review of an excellent show, get yer head out of yer arse.
