On Stage At White Air
Reaction from the show by twitter user @danielm72
doves fucking rocked but no space face though
@dovesmusicblog started with Jetstream, played several tracks from Kingdon of Rust. Black % White Town. Finished with There goes the fear
@dovesmusicblogI haven’t seen doves for a while & was blown away,as were the crowd. Jimi made mention of how ‘Up for it’ the crowd was .
@dovesmusicblog the atmosphere was electric, and the band were brilliant. Best band in this country, and have been for a long time!
Cheers! If you want to submit a review/photos etc drop me a line at the usual address. I believe that was doves last outdoor UK festival appearance for the year.
How’s Kingdom Of Rust been holding up for you? I gave it a rest for a few months there. Been listening to tons of Kraftwerk of late (readying for The Catalogue.. yes please Santa!) went back to KOR yesterday.. Brilliant stuff, hasn’t left my CD player. Its early days yet, but the signs are good. I was not the biggest fan of Some Cities back in 05, it wasn’t til around late 2007 that I really got it. So we’ll have to wait and see.
Check out the Kingdom Of Rust poll on the right, which is just a couple votes away from 1000! Surprised The Outsiders isn’t up there with 10.03/Winter Hill. The poll is open til the end of the year.
Visit the White Air website for ticket details and further info.
Reading the “review”, it’s entirely possible that the author, Simon Price, didn’t attend the show at all. He erroneously refers to ’10:03′ as ‘Terminal 3’ and cites the lyric, “Like a moth to a flame” as being a clichÃ©… A clichÃ© it may be – but it’s a good one – unlike constant comparisons to Elbow (a comparison which Mr. Price egotistically lays claim to originating).
