  • Hi

Some ACTUALLY GOOD 30 second highlights (not just HBHG, the robots and Galvanize) :music

Also i found a very cool edited video of HBHG

Now this video got me thinking about the new visuals, i like the purple breakdancers, but the talking head just seems a little bit out of place, maybe they should go back with the green one with glasses
Add Burst Generator back to setlists!

OOC/DIA is outstanding. I hope they will keep it for next year show.
The moment with DIA silhouettes and warped up DIA synthline gave me chills.
The whole segment actually.
I loved 2007/2008 Out of Control live (with Primal Scream) so I'm glad they brought it back.
OOC is my favorite track, so I take any variation of it. I feel that it could just go on and on and on...
Can you imagine ..... an extra-terrestrial disc jockey? Like, listening to radio waves from space? It was unbelievable!

I'm so glad I'm not the only one, I hate the head, it reminds me of a cheap 90s CGI model, I'm not so much a fan of the purple dancers too, they literally fall like ragdolls in Halo reach (Flipping and waving their arms and legs)
I wouldn't mind if they go back to the drawing board and reanimate the head, or add something additional to the mix, like they did with the tables and sofas.

I'm actually surprised HBHG is the only really new visual. I'd count Out Of Control but it's still made of Dissolve/Music: Response b-roll (and some of DIA which is quite creative mixing all the silhouettes together)

I imagine if they're able to film more new visuals for other songs something like HBHG would probably feel more in place, but even then...it does feel very out there, despite feeling familiar if that makes sense
I can't take the hearbreak of you leaving me again
And I'm not the one I was back then, no, no, no, no
One thing I can't take is to sit home all alone
Do what you like, my dear, but I'm not staying home

I also noticed a bit of HBHG from 2007/8 towards the end too, with the return of the green spirals. though they've been recycled already for Chembeats its kinda cool seeing it outline the Chaplin B-Rolls.

on a positive note, I got pretty much everything to assemble a pseudo concert audio, all we're missing is the Acid Children transition between GTKO & DIA and full TDTYF (though I think there may be enough 30 sceond clips out there for a TDTYF compilation).

Well, that was a fine evening!  First time seeing them at a Festival, believe it or not - always seen them in indoor venues, with the exception of the Trafalgar Square gig many moons ago.  Indoors the sound always seems more controlled, but here they just seemed to ramp up the sound that little bit more as the night went on. Incredible.

Watching the clips from this show brought some shivers to my spine. Fuck me.

Brought shivers to mine just being there.  Thought it was a great set. Loved the longer HBHG, set it up nicely.  Surprised Go wasn't as long as the last tour.  OOC/DIA, UTI/DYOH and the C-H-E-M-I-C-A-L/LH/STTS/BRB finale were epic, but then again consistently epic throughout.

Heard ONLY 8 miles away?  Pssst.  Disgraceful that their cutting corners and going so weak sauce on their sound.

I live about 6 miles away as the crow flies.  Heard Biffy on Thursday, Liam on Saturday - fairly normal on a calm day.  Then heard them soundchecking on Sunday morning, a different level. I had a text from my wife not long after they'd taken the stage - "I assume that's the Chems on now then..."

I'm still a bit upset, that no-one records The Darkness...

I've got a short clip - deliberately didn't record anything else. I'll try to post.


Scottish people sing "Here we fucking go"...pretty much anywhere!
As a Glasgow/Scottish gig-goer, it gets very tiresome but can't fault the enthusiasm!  If you want to see something unexpected... have a search for "national treasure" Lorraine Kelly introducing KSI earlier in the weekend with the same chant.

Anyway, it's great being back at gigs, and that this was one of the first was perfect timing!

Usually reserved for CB only shows - not the festivals with shorter set times, unfortunately...

Yeah, something about both this and the updated “Go” visuals remind me a little too much of, idk, Blue Man Group - and like, I get that the line between “experimental theater which will still get its point crowd-pleasingly across when played on an LED screen at a massive festival” and “Vegas sideshow” is a pretty thin one, but usually the Chems fall on the right side of it and I’m not sure what it is about the set-opener slot that makes Smith+Lyall jump straight to “mauve wireframes that do things we can translate into a spotlight shining on the audience” as of late.
(Plus “Hey Boy Hey Girl” as an opener has become such a stopgap/default move over the years; their sets are pretty much always more interesting when they find a place to drop the inevitable Here We Go Song somewhere in the middle, with a track that more specifically evokes their current era - or at least the most recent time a bunch of non-diehards paid attention to them - at the start, and it feels to me like the choice they make when they aren’t confident the crowd will be onboard without some big boshy reminder of the period when the maximum number of eyes were on them. Which I guess, admittedly, as borne out by the social-media evidence, was 100% true of this now-concluded 2021 shaky-COVID-test-case festival run. Even with the above complaint in mind this was still a variant of what I would still consider their best pre-encore setlist ever, “The Darkness That You Fear” is a great track with probably the only non-Smith+Lyall music video that’s ever felt of a piece with their work, and “Out of Control/Do It Again” might be the cleverest solve they’ve ever devised for boosting the Songs People Expect To Hear:Interesting Setlist quotient, so here’s hoping for the sake of both the world and this board that festival crowds are in a better place this time come 2022.)
I need the Miguel version of the album

Really cool. The only thing missing is the epic build up/ break down at the end of the 6 minute (album) version. Since this rendition is too short anyway, they should add that back into the live performance.

And the darkness that you fear will disappear

No - can’t take the credit for this! I only had a 60 second or so clip.

2:00, They triggered the sample in the wrong section of the track, as it should appear just before the bridge, but I really love it! <3
