    Borrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrn in the USA...



    Also, my God, note to show tapers - if you're going to be the only person able and willing to record a heavy security one-off event in relatively high quality, please don't then sing over it with such a surreal degree of tone deafness.

    Badass. Also, apparently The Box soundtrack is gonna have a full on release. I can't fucking wait to hear what Arcade Fire want the 70's to sound like. I barely know what a Mellotron is, but I'd like one.

    EDIT:


    Full recording of Tunnels from the other night. I can't work out whether it's Win's bolero jacket type thing, or just the perspective, but it makes him look like he's got enormous legs and a tiny little head.



    This does boost the odds of that rumored appearance at the Merge thing considerably, doesn't it?

    Merge records are having their 20th anniversary festival thing in North Carolina this summer. Aside from Obama stuff and the odd charity thing, it's the only thing I can think of this year that might get them out of hiding.

    I'm very doubtful, to be honest, but I wouldn't have predicted the Obama ball either, so who knows.

    The other day someone posted a much better video of the Born in the USA cover. So, I ripped the audio. Enjoy!

    Sweet.

    It's mind boggling to me how much internet whining is going on about them playing Born In The USA though.

    Really? What are they saying? I thought it was a good cover. And Win/Will grew up in Texas, so if that's what people are complaining about, they can go die.

    That's pretty much what they've been whining about yeah, that an apparently Canadian band was playing the American inauguration.

    Which is hilarious, I mean, even if you consider Arcade Fire a totally Canadian band, it's not like Jeremy Gara's presence at the Staff Party personally put 1,000 Detroit steelworkers out of jobs or anything.

    No offense to the steelworkers, it's just that I don't think their drumming during Black Wave is especially impressive.

    Edit:

    Goddamn, I am totally in love with this song.

    Fun fact: The Neon Bible hotline was costing Arcade Fire $1500 a month.

    1-800-NEON BIBLE

    Phone number Arcade Fire started spreading around. It was before the album's name was widely known, so people weren't always actually sure what they were calling. You rang up, and somebody would answer the phone, usually either Will or Richard.

    Later on, when word got out that it actually really was them, they set up an automated answerphone service. It still never said at any point that it was the Arcade Fire's number you were calling, it just sounded like the creepiest self-help hotline ever. Pressing different digits asked you different questions or played previews of Neon Bible songs or whatever, and sometimes, they called you back.

    Anyway, people really ran with it. They told fairytales or stories about their lives or just tried to explain why they loved the band or whatever, but they got a huge number of calls. It was cool, it turned into a kind of PostSecret thing. Just people wanting to talk to them. You can hear some of the messages on the Neon Bible website, and there's a bunch of them all through Miroir Noir.

    My two favourites being:

    Little girl's birthday.


    Very unimpressed dude:


    There's another pretty arresting one in the film from this guy who just sounds completely lost in his life, like really profoundly unhappy. Must be weird to get somebody calling you with something so intense just 'cause you make some songs.

    EDIT:

    People who say you can't buy happiness are stupid. Or at least, people who say you can't trade a vintage analog synth for it.

    Me personally, no. I have no strong feelings regarding Table Tennis, one way or the other. Them indie types seem to love it though.

    I think the Bjork thing was in Australia, I'm not sure though.

    I'll try to get those pics sorted and uploaded soon. I found a couple of pics of them (AF) sitting on the ground at the back of the stage at Sasquatch '05 watching Wilco's set.

    Doesn't count unless they were playing Table Tennis with Wilco.

    Sporting force to be reckoned with, those folks.

    Sarah Neufeld sez:

    While youíre touring with Bell Orchestre, is Arcade Fire talking about recording a new album? Will you be caught in between both?

    Yeah, Iím imagining it will be something like that... my gut tells me before 2010.

    So, yeah, here's hoping for this year.

    And bow the fuck down to Sarah Neufeld, you mannerless savages.
