V Festival Part 3 - Kaiser Chiefs

Isn't E4's coverage of V awful? Some tit on there has just cut over "Gravity" by Embrace and said, "Embrace only write anthems. Fact." That song was written by Chris Martin. Fact.

Anyway, while I'm still angry, onto the Kaisers, and while I DO ENJOY their whimsy, it's true that the more I see of this band, the more I see of another band I quite enjoy - Blur. As if Employment didn't sound like Modern Life Is Rubbish part 2.

Great, inventive tunes evocative of an England that doesn't really exist - but nevertheless doesn't have the Daily Mail, warm beer and cricket on the green either.

But more importantly, the more I see of lead Kaiser Ricky Wilson, the more he reminds me of Damon Albarn. Especially every time he opens his mouth to speak. An absolute cock. (And he's not even a Chelsea fan).

Can you take any more Kaiser festival mp3s though?

I agree with you on the whole Kaisers = Blur thing.

I must say tho' that since Blur no longer make this kind of music that the Kaiser's facsimile is the next best thing.

Did you manage to record Scissor Sisters and Alex Kapranos playing Sufragette City?

vsmith, I found this:

It's not my recording though. I don't know if I have it, I still have hours of recordings to go through.
