I'm sure you have been asked this lots of times before (I would have followed the advice on the site about reading through previous questions to avoid repetition/being boring/asking whats been asked a thousand times before) BUT I have had a few glasses of vino and am a little tired.
SO - would you and the gang maybe like to play at my wedding please? We are getting wed at the Victoria Baths in Manchester (wicked venue) and my partner and I met over you Piazza New York Catcher song and would absolutely love it if you said yes. Long shot I know, but your music has really been a massive part of our relationship. (Matthew confirmed that he liked me by giving me his Boy With the Arab Strap badge that he used to wear in college) and also brought me closer to the friends I count as my bestest.
We'd feed you and the band lots of pie and mash!
that is a romantic story. i'm sure you're wedding day will be stressful enough without having to accommodate our massive PA needs and rider.
hope it's a good one! x
assuming that the request lines are now open i would propose "my wandering days are over"(for me in boston) & stars of track & field(for the kid & his better half in brooklyn)
request lines ARE open! only for a really short window though.. like the shaft of light that shines through the jewel in 'raiders of the lost arc'.
your requests are noted
I received tickets to your Montreal show for Christmas, and they were my favourite present, it will be my first live show and I can't wait!
My birthday is in July and I'm thinking of also going to the Toronto concert for my birthday. My question is, should I expect the shows to be really different, or do such close shows tend to have similar setlists?
I know it's months away, but I'd love it if you could play Seeing Other People, Another Sunny Day, or Come On Sister at one of the shows as those are my favourite songs!
Thanks a lot,
usually we can vary our shows a lot, but as the tour is just starting, toronto and montreal may be 'similar'!
i was thinking about seeing other people yesterday. we may have a go at it, just for you, but i think we will certainly play 'another sunny day'. x
A question purely based on vanity here.
On the quite brilliant video for 'I Want The World To Stop' you are wearing possibly the coolest sun glasses ever worn by anyone. They are like see through Ray Ban ones with dusty purple lenses.
My upcoming honeymoon in Sicily this summer simply wouldn't be complete without them proudly sat on my nose/ears.
I've spent hours trawling the internet and I can't see them, or anything similar.
Where on Earth did you get them?
got them in NYC, on the street. $5!
Im having 'Colour my life with the chaos of trouble' tattooed on my arm,I dont want to look a dick and have an incorrect spelling,so is it colour or color?
terry, you've probably don't it already.. i'd say either is ok. we say colour in the UK tho. send us a pic!
There's a really crackin' rarity called Pocketbook Angel - why was it never released?
that was before the band was formed. i gave a tape of that song to our record label as a possible future recording, and they bootlegged it! strange behaviour.
