Quiet is the new loud - shadows of echoes of memories of songs

Quiet is the new loud
I intend to go to see Kings of Convenience at the Cambridge Corn Exchange on Tuesday October 5th. KofC are purveyors of melodic, angst-ridden Norwegian folk; reviewers searching for comparisons with other music tend to namecheck Nick Drake and Belle & Sebastian. (Thanks again acronym for giving me the CD which introduced me to them!)

I am also thinking of going to see The Magnetic Fields on Wednesday October 27th, partly because they sound like they might be quite interesting but also because the support band is The Real Tuesday Weld, who are seriously groovy. (And thanks again oldbloke for giving me the CD which introduced me to them!)

NB: I am not co-ordinating ticket-buying. You can book online through the CornEx website. But if anybody else I know is going, then hey, we could meet up. That would be nice.

Cambridge people take note: Kings of Convenience, "Quiet is the New Loud" is now on sale in Fopp for only a fiver. Go and buy it while stocks last! :-)

[Listen to a sample track first: Parallel Lines]

You don't want to know where we first heard them.

What do you mean, you do?

Really? TBW's show.

Coo, really? ... Mind you, TBW does actually play some decent music. Nowhere near as good as Wogan, but not too bad. If she'd just STFU and play music, her show would be fine!

One suspects she doesn't choose it herself

*listened to sample track*

*tries to work out the soonest time she can be in town*

Um... soddit. Saturday afternoon. Hmm. I s'pose I'll just have to hope.

Either that, or skip badminton tomorrow... :\

I doubt it'll sell out that quickly. :) But if you're worried I can pick you up a copy if I go into town tomorrow -- can't promise though as I think I may be supposed to be going to some kind of meeting tomorrow afternoon, which may mean a shorter lunch. ... What day is it again?

*grin*

Nah, I'll just go on Saturday afternoon, and if it's not there I'll sulk at you.

Thank you for the offer ^^;

The Real Tuesday Weld are also the support in London two weeks before; I have great hopes.

Please persuade me that it would not be sensible to see The Magnetic Fields in Cambridge as well, and that seventeen days is not in fact an aching eternity between two radically different performances.

Please persuade me...

You're asking me to be your conscience? Bwahahahaha. Come to Cambridge! Go on.

No thanks, I'm trying to give it up.
