In light of these melt-banana and MBV threads, anyone who can appreciate Polvo's recent tour activity can vouch for how amazing they sound. I saw them last night and their sound was so tight and dead on, possibly better than it has ever been. They played some serious hits, mixed it up at some parts and Ash even broke into My Kimono via request from the crowd although he stopped about a minute in saying "And that's when I get lost." Epic band, epic performance. I don't remember the exact setlist but they definitely played:

Fast Canoe
Title Track
Thermal Treasure
New Song
City Spirit
Every Holy Shroud
Lazy Comet
Feather of Forgiveness
Stinger (Five Wigs)
Fractured (Like Chandeliers)
Tragic Carpet Ride

and a few others I probably missed, I'm pretty sure they played Action Vs. Vibe but can't be quite sure as some of the songs sounded pretty different from the album versions 15 years later.

watching some one perform tunes while "standing there holding a shrugging pose with a confused look " on their face is what I rock to!

Then you'd better make sure the cover charge does not go higher than $10

You cold always just let me overhear you while you make fun of people. that is likely to be very entertaining.

Can't we change the name of this thread to "Let's get Cantanky onto British TV, wearing her devil horns, and get her to take the piss out of people whilst kicking Jonathan Ross in the balls"? (Her theme tune could be the Ting Tings' "That's Not My Name").

I saw Polvo once. They were OK, but Bailter Space (who they were supporting) really kicked ass that night, so I never bothered listening to them since...ah yes, at the same gig, Kustomised were playing, and they a real Southern showmen thing going on - most entertaining.

I'd do the same to my mum to see Polvo live. Can you beat that ?


Lucky you, Mr Boots, at the moment I'm trying to force me to not listen to this band everyday, but I'm always thinking about one of their songs all the time ( I can't stop playing Gemini cusp in my head at the moment).
