yep i saw them at the oxford zodiac in the end and it was the best gig ever

sh*tdisco really impressed me

i thought it would be a really sloppy, new band kind of performance but it turned out to be really pounding and there was never a dull moment

new rave is with us

Picked up the Xan Valleys EP earlier today. Sure I had all the songs already, but it's nice to have them all in one convenient package. Plus the idiot who originally leaked the "Atlantis to Interzone (Crystal Castles Mix)" recorded it at 33 RPM, which is a real shame since it sounds excellent at regular speed.

Great band, anyway, lots of fun, blah, blah, blah, [insert more praise here]...

To be honest there are a bunch of bands that sound just like Klaxons in that whole Nu-Rave bunch, Klaxons are just the biggest and the best (IMO). And what with all the Doherty backlash, I think we'll finally see the end of all those Libertines wannabes.

yes the nu-rave movement has become the new trend, but its a trend thats exciting and original, who would of enivaged the day when 60s garage rock meets early 90s rave? And i love the libertines, they were a band that, like the klaxons, freshened up the scene. Incidently, i think datarock are better than the klaxons.

I don't think the Libertines really freshened up the scene. All they really influenced were a bunch of sub-par bands who sound just like them. As for the Nu Rave being exciting and original, it's basically Dance Punk with Rave instead of Disco. Probably won't last, anyway. :/

And I don't really associate Datarock and Klaxons with each other, but I still think Klaxons are better.

Maybe it's because I heard them before all this "Nu-Rave" stuff was being tossed around, but I tend to consider them more of an Electro group. I mean, other than the occasional guitars, all they make is dance music.

Now I'm not British, but as an outsider looking in, it's not like Britain was in dire need of a band like the Libertines. In fact, I actually think the British Indie scene was in better shape before they came around. In popularity, sure, they're very important, but in terms of actual quality, talent, and range of influence, not really. The Libertines only really get the attention because at the time Britpop was still dying out, and despite basically just being a continuation of it (along with most popular British bands these days, IMHO), they seemed to be "new" and "exciting." Honestly, if it hadn't been for the so-called "Garage Rock Revival" going on the US and no new popular music genre forming in the UK, would the Libertines really be as big as they are?

my point exactly. There was no real scene of prominance in the UK at the time. Bands such as feeder, travis, stereophonics, coldplay and david gray were the notable acts in the industry. Oasis and blur were on a creative decline, radiohead were sporadic in thier releases and the Britpop genre was ebbing away. Boybands like Nsync were amassing huge success and the popstars TV show was taking britian by storm. Music looked **** for the new generation. The UK was looking to America for the latest acts and developements - which we dont like doing! Then the Libs came along and we had a group of our own who were fresh and exciting. They've been very influential to bands for the last couple of years so i dont quite understand what your saying there? Yes they carried on the britpop movement - they are a popular british band after all. But they also had an accessibilty through various guerilla gigs that fans could latch onto. They gave us back controversy, excitement and edge to our industry for a couple of years. Anyway, the point is i believe klaxons are doing similiar now, not as much maybe - but they and others making it all a bit exciting again.

I'm really looking forward to the concert, can anyone upload anything? I can't download programmes on this computer, and they only have a few songs on their myspace...
