    Perhaps they thought that the vocals weren't doable in a decent-sounding way live, with the overlapping and skipping and such.

    I wonder if they tried it out in rehearsals? I'd love to see some rehearsal footage.

Pointing out stupid shit does not equal being sensitive. You're preconceptions about the people posting is what drives you to think that.
    fair enough. i guess, i felt that botley's reaction to my initial post was more heated than it needed to be. hence the urge to clarify. i find this whole debate kind of pointless, too, 'though.

    You know, I'm not a HTDA fan but FUCK YOU. That is HIGHLY offensive. Your obvious misogyny is not welcome. You are a very mean sexist person. And now you are just a troll.

    HEY, TOPIC CHANGING TIME!

    So, I'm going to bus to and from the NYC show (live in Philly) and I was wondering if people know what time HTDA has been finishing non-festival shows? (also, door open has been @6 yes?)

    This is what @Erik has said: "Doors at 7, DIIV on at 8. They usually end around 8:40. HTDA goes on at approximately 9. Their set is approximately 90 minutes."

    I'm really hoping we get something like that, a couple of songs are glaringly missing (album version of TSIB, IYLSE?), and I'd wager they tried them out at least.

    Unless part of Ally's signing on deal was that they played his remix.

    I always seem to end up liking the songs that can't be played live the most - same with Zero Sum and All the Love in the World!

    Really wish htda would play some international dates though

    Is the track "The Sleep of Reason Produces Monsters" a reference to Mick Karn's album "Dreams of Reason Produces Monsters" or is this a big coincidence?

    No, it's a reference (as most likely was Karn's) to this etching

    Random question:

    Does anyone know a 'suprefan' on youtube?



    This is their channel and one of their videos from the Pomona show.

    Or -

    Does anyone know a 'razorstarzz' on youtube?



    This is their channel and one of their videos from the Las Vegas show.

    If anyone knows how to reach them, please let us know (ppchevigny@filmssix.com) ! We're looking to have it donated in raw for the TOIOU project.

    I could be mistaken, but I swear they're the same person from the Coachella Message Boards:

    It suddenly occurred to me that Speaking in tongues is very similar to A Violet Fluid.

    As a fan of Alessandro, I have to be honest and say that his remix of The Space In Between has kind of left me cold. I just think the mood is completely different from the original, and not in a good way.

    Watching the HTDA twitter and merchstore like a fucking hawk! Can't wait for them to release the left over liths. I have 4 of 6 - 3 being signed. I hope they might release a select few signed prints as well? I know that all sold out at the shows right away, but maybe they will do a few more?

    Insert picture of Sonic tapping foot...

    Man, that was exactly my reaction when I first heard it! It's almost got the same weird drum arrangement to it; it's so similar I wondered if Trent had done it on purpose as a kind of easter egg for the fans, he seems to have a soft spot for referencing his own work.

    I think you're right. I also think it's a rather unfortunate choice for a song title. The etching is a dangerous masterpiece, true art. To give a popsong of yours that same name seems a bit exaggerating and pompous, no? On the other hand 'though... reserve has never been strong in this one. So it's in line, I guess.

    I don't, but using terms like "true art" is just a way to take the piss. It's snobbish.

    And you know what? When I hear the song, I see the picture. Would that have happened had the band not labeled the song as such? They obviously wanted to tie it to an image, and they were successful in that regard. Whether or not one is better than the other is irrelevant.

    exactly! just because someone chooses to reference something in their own work doesn't mean it has to be on par with the reference (or vice versa). example: the name How To Destroy Angels came from the name of Coil's first official release, which most coil fans (myself included) don't even really like. however, it's an awesome name, and i think it fits the band to a T.

    Alessandro should be a permanent member of the band. That remix is fucking amazing!
