Is there any chance of FREE ticket

One of The Drums did play SXSW with Edwyn Collins. I saw it with my own eyes.

Why on a Monday. Matthew Dear's new record is one of the best things released recently

Not to be a Debbie Downer, but I don't think I can express my "dislike" for the Drums in words. They were so much better as Elkland.

Whatever Debbie, Drums rule. Elkland sounds like some mediocre indie rock band name like Midlake or something anyway.

I wonder how the drums are live?

Posted by Anonymous | March 25, 2011 12:37 PM

"Live" is not really accurate. Sure, the band is there (well who is left in the band), but much of the "music" comes from backing tapes. They kind of just dance around on stage, like bad karaoke.

couple guys with mics dancing around? sounds like Glee. no thanks.

@12:44 - They aren't using backing tracks anymore.

@1:18 - Please don't mention The Drums in the same sentence as Joy Division or New Order ever again. Thanks.
