I've seen both bands live. And both of them are amazing. Yannis Philippakis is an incredible frontman. Seeing Foals in Oxford was one of the best live experiences I've ever had. The two support bands were awesome (Jonquil and Youthmovies), both for completely different reasons. But yes, Foals were obviously the stars of the night.
Then there's Tubelord, who are yet to release their debut album. I think it's out in the next couple of months. I have no doubt it'll be brilliant. They have a knack for writing songs that makes you want to mosh and dance at the same time. Much like Foals, though they do sound very, very different. When I went to their show in Kingston, their hometown, in December last year it was such a friendly atmosphere. The crowd was awesome. The bands were incredible, including Blakfish and Colour. I would love to see Tubelord live again.
Tubelord - Feed Me A Box Of Words
'I Am Azerrad' is the best song about killing the concept of a rock critic ever written in the entire history of civilisation.
