The whole debate about live/studio is a tricky one.As a passionate lover of library music,i'm filled with joy when a type of music is re-created in the studio etc etc(no need to go on about that) but you have to make the due differences.I have been thinking recently of how,say,The Velvet Underground sound like almost a totally different band on many a bootleg and they improve 100 times .Just a thought.

Bowie playing "Low" followed by "Heathen" at the Royal Festival Hall a few years back was pretty dire. It doesn't quite deserve to go in "Shit Shows" thread, but it's close.

[quote=Florya]I know this might sound like heresey, but I was disappointed by the Velvet Underground when they played Glastonbury a few years back.

We should forget about that reunion.

Jane's Addiction was terrible the last time I saw them. I couldn't hear a damn word Farrell was singing and the guitar sounded crap.
George Clinton and James Brown were also shit, but that was more my fault for seeing them so late in their careers.

I saw MCIAA twice, and in both occasions they bored me A LOT. I'm not that patriottic, huh?

I was disappointed in the shortness of Xiu Xiu's set and the fact that Cat Power didn't finish half of her songs. They were both brilliant though. I've never really been disappointed.

I saw James Brown in 1998, and the first 80% of the show was pretty naff (he brought on a magician, for God's sake!), but the encores were terrific (Sex Machine and I Feel Good) and more than made up for the iffy main set.

The Soul Generals were tight, but James was pretty worn out within 10 mins. He only sang the refrains on most of his songs. Sad.

Busta Rhymes.....all he did was advertise his new album and do short/shitty remixes of his old songs.

I saw the Shins without knowing any of their music at all and assuming they would be OK but not great. It was a free show and I was about a 5 minute walk away and had nothing to do.

A bunch of lame ass sucky songs, 4:20 jokes, and then talking about all the Led Zeppelin they used to listen to. After the show I went to a party and saw some crazy ass band in diapers with drums, a bassist, and a guy on trumpet. Fricking retarded but a lot of fun.

Oh, Yo La Tengo blew live too. I saw them in a CD store for 5 bucks. Dribble.

Oh, and Modest Mouse sucked live. They were touring with the Walkmen, they sucked too. Even the Walkmen's 1 hit wonder that I thought was a decent song sucked.
