C_t Co_y

What's going on with Cut Copy and their live show? I went to see them last night, only to find that there wasn't much of a "playing live" element. It can only be assumed that their sound has been sculpted to such an nth degree by a producer in the studio (in this case, Tim Goldsworthy) that they struggle to reproduce it live. Last night saw plenty of miming, with a guitar at one point so obviously not being played during a solo that it was almost insulting. The crowd didn't care as it all sounded rather impressive, but the performance really left the band exposed. If they're to pull off playing live in the future, they might need to actually play something to make it convincing.

    Jon, it is simply because you were dazzled by Radiohead an evening or so before hand :)

    I was really looking forward to the gig though. Seeing a band whose album I quite enjoy in a small venue provides the opposite of a big open air gig. Still, I just couldn't believe what I was seeing - they hardly touched their instruments, they were playing along to a massive backing track. Really surprising, and really shit too.

    I saw them on thurs doing a joint headline with example, i know what you mean about the whole backing track thing, bit lame. They played for about 20 mins too long in my opinion too
