... And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead

Post by sinus supremus » Wed Oct 01, 2008 14:57

I saw these guys last Saturday night, it was an incredible show. They played with the original lineup and played most of all the good hits and some new ones that hold their own. They are super energetic and switch up the instruments a lot.
Here are a few videos:

I used to really like Trail of Dead, but I lost interest in them some years back (no specific reason).

I think I still have a drum stick somewhere that they through into a crowd once. I imagine my friend still has the drum seat that they through into the crowd at the same show.

First album was ok... loved the second and third but lost interest when i heard the fourth. It sounded a bit bland to me. Haven't they totally changed direction now as well?

I like World's Apart, i know it got slated by pretty much everyone, but i picked it up whilst i was travelling and as such it's become one of those records that just remind of the first few times i heard, just hanging out doing nothing in Melbourne and thinking how great life is.

Saying that though, they had become somewhat of a parody of themselves by that point. Last time i saw them live was Dec 2004 at King Tut's which was a somewhat sweaty affair, but when you expect them to end up throwing one of the drum kits into the crowd and doing the encore there, it does lose something. They are fantastic live though.

Add me to the unanimous used to love them, now can't be bothered list.
and that snare drum, that drum roll
means we've got a winner
