These fine Brits stopped by KXLU right before the last show of their massive 7 week US tour. I was really excited to see them, having known Kevin and John from their previous band, PRE (and for full disclosure, Kevin’s record label Tome released Foot Village’s record “Friendship Nation” in 2008). The guys seemed super beat, so they suggested they mix it up a bit and play a set in a lighter style. I think Robin (drums) was using some kind of heavy brushes or some shit. Kevin and John were seated for the entire set. Normally I’d not be cool with that kind of thing going on, but look at these guys. They were even skinner and more depraved looking than the above photo. Like stray kittens.
Plus they still managed to totally rule. I went and saw them later that night at The Smell, where they played normally (read: much much louder) and it was quite exciting. I almost danced, which is something I am not prone to doing.
To make matters even more delightful for these poor bastards, their flight home gets canceled due to the volcano in Iceland. So they’re still stuck in LA. But I’m going to help fatten them up, on Saturday I’m going to take them to the Grilled Cheese Invitational! Exciting!
