i just clued in that this gig was at the horseshoe. it would be fun to live the life of an up and coming band, as in this case playing to maybe no more than 200 people at the shoe and soon to be playing to 17,000+ at the ACC before DM in may.
dling their album and within seconds of listening to the first track, ya, i thought i was listening to joy division. excited to hear the rest of the album. must make sure i make it for doors on may 18th.
edit: didn't peter hook have a side project called revenge????
i watched their webcast from coachella on saturday night. i was surprised that they actually have some stage presence. i was really expecting some dudes in black gazing at their shoes, but turned out to be an entertaining show.
for those that are interested, their cd is on sale at HMV for $10!! well worth it.
