A murder of crows

after missing their performance in nottingham two years ago, i finally caught up with incubus' current world tour on sunday.


brandon (with his kit on, sorry girls!) with ben and the excellent jose


they kicked off with 'megalomaniac' and from the first note they were superb! a lot of their new stuff from their current 'a crow left to the murder' album like 'talk shows on mute'. to tell you the truth, i'm not so big on their current stuff. its when they played tunes like 'redefine', 'a certain shade of green' and 'make yourself', the crowd went absolutely mental!


dj kilgore and mike on his jazzmaster


apart from having ben kelley as the new guy thumping out the low notes, another noticeable change was that mike einziger was playing fenders. the man has now forsaken the nu-metal-associated paul reed smiths. good for you, mike! the songs were still heavy as ever, despite seeing mike using telecasters and jazzmasters.

they did a cover of prince's 'when doves cry' at the beginning of the encore. and yes, all you female readers of this blog, brandon had his top off during the latter half of the show.
