Favourite live bands?
and favourite live songs/clips, adds videos if possible.
mine are oasis and greenday, both i think are brilliant live. greenday actually said that unlike most bands who tour to promote albums, greenday actually release albums to promote tours, they see themselves as a live band.
oasis, maine road 1996, at the peak of their powers, quality live performance:
cast no shadow
supersonic (imo the best live song i've ever heard, guitar solo especially)
rage against the machine by a mile they where class i was going off my tits at T in the Park gutted i missed the free gig in Finsbury park i couldnt get accommodation cheap enough :(
Dropkick Murphys at Leeds Academy t'other month were fuckin brilliant.
Rage Against the Machine were immense on Saturday at Donington.
But my two favourites are Killswitch Engage and 65daysofstatic.
I have seen 'Bad Manners' live quite a few times. I do like live Ska events.
a bit of 'do rock steady'
Maybe The Special ..
the best live act I've seen are a band called Drive By Audio
search "drive by audio live in paris" on youtube ;)
Oasis are really good live. Saw them in 2000 at Leeds when they did the main event. I've seen a lot of bands but the ones that stand out are Iron Maiden, Polyphonic Spree, One Minute Silence and Queen Adreena
Some of the best people I can remember (remember being the operative word)
Hotchip at Bestival
Bjork at Glastonbury
The Whitest Boy Alive at Hoxton Dining rooms
I saw BUSH as my first ever 'proper' gig in 1996 or 1997 at the LA2. They had placebo supporting as an unsigned act
Slipknot are probably the best live band Ive seen, in terms of tightness and stage show. Both times I saw them was 10+ years ago so I can't really comment on what they're like these days, but when they were touring their first album they were tearing it up.
I also saw Fear Factory at Donnington back in '96 and that's gotta be one of the best live shows Ive seen as well. Rancid were incredible live too, I only went to see them as a mate had a spare ticket but they proper converted me that night.
SOAD and Deftones are 2 of my favourites bands, but both can be very hot or cold when it comes to seeing them live.
