bump to the thread cause I saw them last Friday and it was ****ing awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I almost don't make it to the show for lack of a decent ride but anyway.. we got really really late, we missed both On!Air!Library! and The Secret Machines, I heard different views of both bands, some say they were pretty good and some say they were crap.. I honestly don't care!

ok, so, since we were late, we arrived when Interpol's set had already started, I won't be bothered to check the setlist in any website cause knowing what I missed would be just torture, I just know Lenght of Love was finishing and Obstacle 1 was next when we got there.
They played (order might be wrong):
Lenght of Love
Obstacle 1
Narc
Not Even Jail
Public Pervert
Hands Away (!!!!)
Slow Hands
PDA
Leif Erikson ( kdshfsdnvmshfjh!)
Stella was A diver and She was always Down
Roland

I must add the lights were amazing..really really great, I was blown away by them and the show will be memorable ONLY BECAUSE OF them. I do love Interpol but they've been touring a lot and they were probably just tired, I thought Leif Erikson would be amazing but no, unfortunately it was a lot less than I expected.. plus I really wanted to heard Untitled and Specialist. anyway, other than that, it was still a great show, the acoustic was great and the crowd was lovely...and hot

Of course there are some similarities between Joy Division and Interpol, even Paul Banks said in an interview that JD were an inspiration for them - but I don't think they're JD clones. I can see some other infleunces, like Bauhaus, for instance...
I really think they managed to create they're own identity, I quite like they're songs! Thanks for the topic MulletProof!

Now, about Joy Division... For me, one of the greatest bands ever... Maybe I should start a topic...

with their new album out in stores and their songs being overplayed in those repulsive Clear Channel stations, their fan base keeps growing and growing.. and we need a home, for us good decent oldies.. and also for the n00bs

I recommend 'antics.' it's more bouncy than 'bright lights.' carlos d. has an odd look though.

awesome. do you know who's opening for them?, I lost my password from the interpol board and I'm too lazy to get it back:p ..I'm not really excited about Interpol anymore but it would be interesting to know what bands are supporting them this time.

argh, how annoying, the board is down.

I saw them in October and I was a bit disappointed, I figured they were just tired and not cheerful enough to put on a decent show, recently I realized I was so annoyed because I missed half of the show .
and Antics is slowly getting on my nerves, I feel like I cant listen to the entire album anymore.
I'd still pay to hear Hands Away, though

'pol
interpol is one of the better bands out of new york.
theyve been hanging around for years especially carlos 'fringe' D.
I think antics is better than lights but both LPs are respectable and possibly even very good depending on your mood & if you grow tired of their sound quickly or not.

thats their flaw- its a monchromatic sound that can impress at 3rd listen but at 30th you want to toss the cd out the window & end your friendship with them.
i think the songwriting is peppier in antics although I like PDA on lights.
sure they copy joy divison & echo bunnymen and 10 other bands but thats nothing unusual

nice clothes though.
