My New Wave diva obsession

Kaiser Chiefs
Another Number
Seventeen Cups
Not Surprised
I saw these guys at Lollapalooza in 2005 and holy shit were they amazing. It was about 100 degrees out that day and the lead singer had the flu pretty bad so he looked like death warmed over. Despite his near-death conditions, he rocked out hardcore until he couldn’t sing anymore, at which point he grabbed two people from the audience to sing for him while he climbed the rafters. Word is that immediately after the show he threw up and passed out. I don’t care if these guys are part of the new-new-wave movement, that’s fucking metal! these tracks are B-sides to ‘Everyday I Love You Less And Less.’

It’s Tough To Have A Crush When The Boy Doesn’t Feel The Same Way You Do
Thanks to silly dance moves and some creative uses of treadmills these guys are totally huge now and I couldn’t be happier. I first saw them in 2002, they were opening for The Vines at some dive in Detroit and they nearly stole the show. I had the pleasure of talking to them afterwards and was amazed at how damn nice they were. Since then I’ve seen them live four other times and always leave their shows with a smile on my face. They’re the best power-pop band since Cheap Trick. These are two tracks off of the Brown EP.

No More Words (Dance Mix)
If I ever had the chance I would do things to Terri Nunn that would have her…I can’t think of a funny/non-creepy way to end that sentence. I’m just going to post these two B-sides to ‘No More Words’ and be done with it.
