Paleo 2009, Day 2

The second day of Paleo. It rained a bit in the morning, so the air was less hot and dry and it made for wonderful weather conditions.

Franz Ferdinand - they were there in 2005 and I honestly think that they're 2005 performance was better. The new songs just doesn't sound as good on stage as their earlier stuff. Dunno why. I had a chuckle when I saw a sticker with the letters "E A D G" on Bob's bass (if you're a bass player you'll understand).

Thomas More Project - halfway through Franz Ferdinand I left to watch this local band. I knew the guy who used to manage them and they are pretty good. Great sounds accompanied by animations, apparently it's an audio-visual thing. Not sure if they own the copyright of the videos though.

The Prodigy - Keith Flint is not as mad as I thought he is. He also doesn't do a lot (apart from running around and waving his arms like he just don't care), just a yell here and there. Maxim did most of the talking/singing/screaming.

The Ting Tings - pretty good. Jules is a great musician and him hooking up with Karen White for her vocals and rudimentary guitar skills proved to be great. I like it how all of Karen's guitar swtches and buttons were taped up so that she didn't fiddle with it.

Malakoff, Calamari, Sambusa, Gauffre. And beer.
