    I agree, it's always fun to see a new Foo video. And it's cool that Dave's daughters got to be in this one too.
    yeah has a  Stranger Things thing going on also.

    Chevy Metal played a surprise show last night at Oxford Art Factory in Sydney. Tickets only went on sale at 1pm yesterday afternoon, limited to one wristband per person and the venue only holds 500 people.
    It would have been awesome to see Dave (in an ABBA t-shirt?!?) and Taylor play a couple of hours of covers in such a small venue!

    http://themusic.com.au/news/all/2017/08/30/we-got-into-that-surprise-dave-grohl-gig-last-night-and-it-was-the-best-tuesday-gig-youll-ever-see/?utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=YDS%20300817&utm_content=YDS%20300817+CID_e8e23b0902ed6fc68e72fdadc52da29e&utm_source=Daily%20SPA&utm_term=We%20Got%20Into%20That%20Surprise%20Dave%20Grohl%20Gig%20Last%20Night


    "Just so you know, we’re a cover band," Taylor Hawkins announces this up front to settle any expectations. After all, when Hawkins, the drummer from Foo Fighters is joined by his long-time cohort, Dave Grohl, on stage we might not know what to expect, but the band is a ‘70s dirt rock cover band formed by singer and bassist Wiley Hodgden (The Birds of Satan). Taylor is now a regular member of the group, but the guitarists seem to be rotated around. Tonight, having flown 26 hours to be there, Brent Woods joined the line-up from London.

    Oh, and then there's Dave Grohl. "I’ve been auditioning for this band for ten years! They’re my favourite band in the world!" Grohl, of course, is the main man of the night. His ABBA shirt is worn seemingly un-ironically and suits the theme of the night.


    The band rip straight into Bitch from The Rolling Stones and then switch it up into The Knack’s My Sharona. We are treated to a mix of '70s tracks, some of which the crowd may have been a bit mystified by. The hottest ticket in town on a Tuesday night saw The Oxford Art Factory filled to the brim with a mix of old-school, new-school and industry folk. Having lined up for two hours earlier in the day only to be put on a waiting list, I received a text at 6.37pm granting admission to the gig. It was a lucky break and worth the effort and a cheeky twenty bucks in the end!

    The music is tight, loud and raw. The talent on stage is obvious as they seem to be playing perfectly in sync despite a certain lack of rehearsal time. The singing duties are mostly performed by Hodgden who covers Sabbath’s The Wizard and The Vapors' Turning Japanese perfectly, but Hawkins takes over on The Faces' Stay With Me and most notably switches places with Grohl on a huge highlight of the night, Mercury and Bowie's Under Pressure. Grohl relinquishes the sticks quickly. "I'm so glad I don’t have to do that any more!"


    The night is two hours of fun from a self-proclaimed 'wedding band on crack' and with the calls of 'play something Aussie' coming from the crowd, Grohl proceeds to name-drop a number of Aussie acts, including Midnight Oil, INXS, The Hard-Ons, Angels, Hoodoo Gurus before finishing the night with two tracks from "…the best Aussie band there is." Riff Raff and Let There Be Rock round out the best Tuesday night gig you'll ever see. If only Foo Fighters would play this venue one day.

    enjoyed the new album on the first listen this morning 
    ...got a mind full of questions and a teacher in my soul...
  • Album came early. Foos showing some new layers. Initial impression, wide variety of sound with heavy influences of 70s rock. It's damn good
  • Don't care for the new album at all.  Very disappointed.

    I need to listen to it a few more times.  I tend to cringe at the opening vocals on each song.

    Don't care for the new album at all.  Very disappointed. 
    That's too bad.  Often I have to listen to an album a number of times.... very few albums catch me on the first listen.

    I find the foo fighters usually have a few decent tracks on every album they put out but very few are great front to back.   Self-Titled, The Colour and the Shape, and Wasting Light are probably the ones I really enjoy front to back.  Most of the other ones it's a few songs on each album.

    Given how many albums they have, it's enough to make a long setlist full of songs everyone knows and can rock out to.   Not many acts left that have that enough songs to make a killer setlist front to back (even if it's the standard greatest hits kind of setlist, instead of the extremely rare pearl jam/springsteen kind of setlist.)
  • This will be a polarizing album. If u hoped for status quo, you will be disappointed. If u were looking for Dave to jump out of his comfort zone and get creative with the Foo sounds, it's awesome. Count me in the group who didn't want the same album the Foos put out each release.

    I think, for me, anything will be better the Sonic Highways. And I dig the first 3 tracks released. Looking forward to tomorrow and hearing the rest.

  • normnorm I'm always home. I'm uncool.Posts: 31,111
    It seemed like every time a new Foos record was being recorded, Dave would say it's totally different than anything they've done. Then the finished product was pretty much the same, great Foos.

    This time he/they did it. HawkeyeJam is correct. Lots of stuff happening in this album.

  • I would have been happy with another standard Foo release and that's what I was honestly expecting. This thing is a complete surprise, not sure it's great by any means but they went way out of their comfort zone for the first time ever. Been through it about 5 times and it really doesn't sound like any of their previous albums. Makes me wonder what their catalog would have looked like had they tried something like this around say 2005 when they honestly ran out of new ideas. I loved Wasting Light and thought Sonic Highways was good but they were clearly content sticking with a certain forumula because it worked. Here we get a bunch of songs that minus Run, Sky and maybe Arrows would not fit on any other Foo record. For me the highlights are...

    Sky Is a Neighborhood - More of traditional Foo song but still has a fresh feel to it.
    La Dee Da - Total NIN vibe here, could easily see Trent belting this one out.
    Arrows - My personal favorite so far.
