I can't imagine the Arcade Fire ever rockin out like Mclusky...I mean, just look at the members of Arcade Fire. Last people yo'd ever expect rockin a song like Lightsabre ****suckin Blues...would be funny though.

But yes good point, the world needs more bands like Mclusky. I recommend you check out Part Chimp, they're a good, fukkin NOISY rock group from the UK. They're on Mogwai's label (they sound nothing like Mogwai though).

haha no problem, Part Chimp are awesome. One of the most explosive live bands I've ever heard as well. And on that note, oh how I wish I could've seen Mclusky live.

Laughing Boy, yeah they have at least one album out...the one I have is called "I Am Come", which is absolutely fantastic. I recommend it highly.

I just got Do Dallas out my local library. It's pretty good. They sound like a louder, more raw version of Modest Mouse to me.

Fanyboys really annoy me and i obviously stand for music being subjective.

But you know what?

Mclusky are the greatest fucking rock band to have ever existed and if you haven't got even the slightest hint of love for them then you have no rights listening to music in the first place. Yeah.

They're name sucks. So that has caused an extreme delay in me checking these guys out. Do Dallas is pretty good (I couldn't imagine disliking anything Steve Albini is associated with). They come off as a band that would sound so much live and I get that feeling like I've seen "this band" half a dozen times in local basements but they're still good enough to keep my attention and almost seem to be banking on energy (which isn't a bad a thing). All in all good album that I'll probably spin again.
