    But I got sold this, was listening to Don Caballero yesterday after ages and made my mind up about coming to this.
  18. avatar spirit of division
    There'll definately be tickets on the door and if not I'd keep someover for you...

    Saw you earlier creeping about Victoria Square...you seemed kinda lost in a world of your own...
  19. avatar POSITIVExYOUTH
    Good times.

    Well, I was. That place is too big and too confusing.
  20. avatar spirit of division
    It's mostly full of not very much...but it's a niver walk to Forbidden Planet than the other street where Eason used to be...

    Cant wait for this :)

    Surely reading week is another term for going out?
  26. avatar POSITIVExYOUTH
    Ahahahah it most certainly is. But promised my mam that I was going to head home for the week, so I could also be away from the lures and distractions of the big city while attempting to write an essay.
  27. avatar spirit of division
    or you could go home until thurs ;)

    I was disappointed really. I was expecting a lot better.
  43. avatar november kyle
    What I posted on Metal Ireland:

    Pete, a few days ago, by any chance, did Don Cab hear/see footage of We Are Knives and think, "Holy shitballs, we can't go on stage after this lot! They'll blow us away! With their blinding technicality, riffs and general tightness! We must get them off this bill! ASAP!!"?

    At the risk of sounding all Nicholas Carr, I must declare: We Are Knives are better than Don Cab. Better; superior. Now I know the that these guys are held in high regard by many, and their influence can be heard in many places nowadays (definitely within WAK), but I feel they've run their course. Perhaps they were a much better live unit 'back in the day', but I found the performance somewhat lacklustre: the songs simply fade into nothingness. When a song started and you thought it had potential (perhaps a catchy, foot-tapping riff), it would suddenly descend into a mish-mash mess, lacking structure and anything to hold the attention. And although Ray Liotta is a superb drummer, I honestly thought he was about to die on a few occasions.

    Echoing what was suggested earlier in this thread - We Are Knives would've wiped the floor with them. I'm sure many will have differing opinions though :lol:
  44. avatar anty
    im just pissed off ive missed lafaro twice this week :(
  45. avatar spirit of division
    WAK would have wiped the floor with them indeed.

    Lost money at this and that coupled with the fact they somewhat dissapointed me made tonite pretty balls.

    Saying that though Don Cab did have their moments...glad I finally got to see them as well, but I'm sure it would have been better first time round with the original line up...
  46. avatar mrginger
    i seen them with daughters in berlin and wasnt all that impressed - i hear they were better when ian williams was around. Daughters blew them off the stage that night.

    I would have liked to have seen library tapes tho. Had to work. Oh well.

    This is all true but WAK do need to stop pulling out of shows.I know how annoying it can be for this to happen. i thought Don Cab were just ok.. pretty dull actually

    Then again there are times when the casual observer could be led to believe that the name of the band is actually "With support from WAK". They do seem to be slightly over-exposed in respect of supporting post-rock (Or whatever it's called) bands at the Bunker. Maybe that's a false impression, or perhaps there aren't many other suitable local acts for such slots, I'm not scene enough to know.
  49. avatar Crackity_jones
    WAK pulled out of Solidarity this weekend as well. :cry:

    I didn't end up going last night because I was exhausted, though I might have dragged myself along had WAK been playing. Haven't seen them in a while. Not since that Marvin's Revolt gig in the Bunker I think.
  50. avatar Furious Tradesmen
    i think it's a false impression trepanner.
    maybe in 2006 they played a little too often, but these days they make a point of not playing too many shows. even ones they're booked for.

    but yeah, they'd have killed don cab, and it would've been funny. sad times.
  51. avatar Herb
    Maybe i'm mental but I thought Don Cab were pretty good.
    If i was gonna blame anyone for them having an off night I wouldn't blame the whole band, i guess i would blame 'the grumpiest drummer in the world' for them having what most people seem to think was a bad night.

    While i'm here, i'd like to thank pete for having us.

    We had a ball.
  52. avatar boarsheadtaverncheapside
    Aye, but yous were erudite, charmin and deliverd on counts of rockin out and bein mighty, which they weren't an didn't.

    If you ask me it's a blatent concession to the shinners.

    are you saying that WAK book shows and then pull out of them on purpose? why dont they just decide what couple of shows they do want to play and stick to that? brilliant band though.
  54. avatar Lap Dog Shuffle
    Didn't catch the support but Don Cab was dull. I hope that's the last of 'em.
  55. avatar Lemsipmax
    My first post!
    LaFaro were fucking excellent. That was rockin'
    Don Cab were pretty good I thought, wasn't keen on the first few songs but thought it picked up. Drummer saying that he just wanted to "get the hell out of here" didn't exactly make me warm to him...but a good night.
    Pretty annoyed WAK pulled out, wanted to hear their music, shocked to hear they've pulled out of a little solidarity as well...:(
    Was also looking forward to hearing library tapes.
    LaFaro owned.

    He actually said that???
    I'd be tempted to walk out there and then... I didn't make this show, but, yeah... I haven't seen a unanimous 'waste of time' post in a long while.
  57. avatar Lemsipmax
    Yeah i'm pretty sure, he was like...blah blah blah...so then we can get the hell out of here.
    I was pretty steamed, but i'm almost certain I remember that. Good night though, and in fairness, he was a technically excellent drummer.
    Bit of a cock though, it seems.
  58. avatar spider_jerusalem
    They were very disappointing to say the least... WAK would have washed the floor with them.. [note to Steve: no that doesn't necessarily mean I'm complementing you.. ] :wink:
  59. avatar doctorlilt
    I've only heard a couple of Don Cab albums, "Singles Breaking Up", being my favourite. I was expecting that sort of sound at the gig.

    So my question is, when did they change so dramatically?

    On the other hand, there were some fine moments. I hope this gig doesn't discourage Spirit of Division from bringing more stuff over.

    Also, just curious, but what is with WAK pulling out of gigs all the time? (or are we just going to have guess?)
