I don't really pay too much attention to lyrics. I'll grant that the band has many pretentious ones, but for me the draw is unconventional (for rock) chord progressions and structure, shit-hot guitar-playing, and interesting textures. I think what some people might see as boredom-inducing, I appreciate more as "music to zone out with," which is reinforced by my love of trip-hop and things like Neu! and some electronic stuff.

Developers (Developers Developers)

Damn decent set list. I wonder who's doing the vocals? I can't imagine Nick doing Vegetable Man or Bike.

It is a dream set list but from the you tube vids I've seen it's like a cover band, a very good one at that but it's not the Floyd. LIttle pricey too I won't be seeing them. I saw Roger on his solo tour and it was a fantastic spectacle.
