Eskimo Joe

Post by rama_fan » Wed Sep 06, 2006 11:30 pm

Saw their concert a couple of weeks ago and cannot stop listening to them. They are unbelievable and f****** brilliant live.

The Forum suited them down to a tee and at the moment I just can't get enough of them.

Out of all the concerts I've seen this year I'd almost put them ahead of The Strokes and The Artic Monkeys, just.

I have both their albums, their not bad. Nothing on the second album appeals as much as From The Sea though. That song has great momentum.

What do you mean you have both their albums...they've got three!!!!

Girl, A Song is a City, and there most recent Black Fingernails, Red Wine.

They've come along way from the days of Sweater.

It's hard to believe but they are even better live, seen them at the Corner last year, f****** spewing I missed them the other week at the Forum!!!!!

My favourite Joe song is still Wake Up of their first album Girl.

A Song is City is my favourite album though.

Was right up the front at the Forum, we got there fairly early and in the rush to get in it seemed we were the only ones going to the stage, everyone else was going for those booths.

Caught one of the drumsticks thrown at the end, super catch.

Now this is getting annoying. Everywhere I go, where I KNOW I posted, posts have been eaten and it wasn't me this time :D

From The Sea and Black Fingernails, Red Wine are awesome songs. Don't own any of their albums as yet but am thinking of fixing that problem soon.

Correct me if I'm wrong but I was a bloody admin? :D Also saw a stack of other posts made by people who weren't admins that also went by the wayside, just got eaten in the crossover I guess.

It's ok, you only missed my admission that I'm really Tania Hird :shock:
