Easily Thom Yorke for me, I enjoyed seeing Atoms For Peace, but the songs definitely worked better with the abstract electronica that didn't require the 4 other people.

i don't really have anything against flea personally. he's a good bass player and an interesting choice to play those songs. i'm not clamoring for a solo thom studio album: featuring flea, though.

are there any sort of decent AFP recordings floating around these days? i've heard none of the stuff played as a full band - and am interested in hearing what the eraser material sounds like in the hands of a full band.

Still haven't found out how to link stuff from this very board(such a noob) but if you scroll down the 'Upload and Share' page in 'Live Music' you'll find an Oakland '10 thread. the first link is dead but if you move further down the thread, someone has posted a new, working link. It's not soundboard or anything but it works for me, and a stellar setlist including Follow Me Around.

Edit: Oh, and if your not familiar with torrents, download and run Bittorrent, it'll change your life...

its true that some songs are better on The Eraser and some are better live, but you can't argue that Feeling Pulled Apart By Horses, especially the Fuji Rock Festival performance, is so fucking bad ass live

total waste of time... :smoke_coo 

 

 

we all die anyways...why not just enjoy the way out

I think the studio versions of the Eraser songs are comfortably more listenable than the live versions. No contest!

Obviously live there is a great deal of excitement, energy and funk present, but unless you are actually there immersed in the live experience the studio cuts are the only ones for repeated listening in my opinion.

And It Rained All Night and Cymbal Rush are two of my favourite all time tracks by anyone - awesome.

I cannot understand anyone suggesting that The Clock is better live than on the album - every time I've heard/seen it live it has only ever been merely "good" and a shadow of the original!

As for H.Hill I agree completely that the live version borders on rubbish compared to the album version....

Having said all that the Fuji FPABH is indeed jaw-droppingly good!

love clock live, sounds crunchy and full

in the end, i jus happen to respect live music over mixing and mastering in the studio i think, which anyone can pretty much accomplish

i dont think the eraser was an album necessarily made for rearranging live like that though, so theres that, and that pretty much makes the afp band even more successful i think

you can't argue that the acoustic version of The Clock is up for equal competition

total waste of time... :smoke_coo

Would anyone else agree that this kind of outshines the original?



Turns out Jonny can do Thom solo better than Thom ^_^

AFP's rendition of The Eraser at Coachella was a religious experience...I heard it first, then listened to The Eraser.

The live version by a long shot.
