They're probably lip-syncing

>band plays remix instead of studio version of track
if y'all talking about LCD Soundsystem, just wait. Murphy won't stop making post-punk music, and he needs a band to make it. In something like 5-6 years, LCD will make a new album, at least as good as the first LCD album, i bet a trillion on it.

>singer holds mic up to crowd, never sings the chorus himself
You know he played most of the instruments on the albums, I think he'll probably do some work under his own name, don't know how different or similar it's going to be but I think that's what will happen.
Here's a beautiful story that happened to my dad a year ago
>Being my dad
>52, into god-tier Dadrock
>Going to see Bruce Sprinsgteen at the Stade De France, golden places
>hype as fuck
>is up to the show hours before, show begins at 21
>crowd is pretty cool, 30-40 rockers, some nice metalheads
>10 meters from the stage
>1 hour passes
>MOTHERFUCKIN' BRUCE REACH THE STAGE TO PLAY 30 MINUTES ACOUSTIC SHOW
>no opening acts, only 5 minutes late
>show is awesome, Bruce is like a fucking deamon, he takes the placards and ask the band to play the songs that people ask for
>plays Born To Run three times in a row
>1 and half an hour passes
>"So now, we're gonna play... A full album... You'll like this one"
>Synth part of Born In The U.S.A drops
>BURN DOOOOOOOOWN IN A DEAD MAN'S TOWN
>Ends the concert with a 20 minutes Jungleland
>No encores, nobody asked for (3 hours gig ofc)
>Best show ever according to my dad (and that comes from a man who saw Pink Floyd in 1978)
>Live version of the album is shorter than the studio version
If you have to play the same song multiple times in a row it means you lack other good songs to fill the time with. Sounds pretty typical for someone as shitty as bruce Springsteen
As everyone else else has already pointed out, that's generally a good thing. It's often at least interesting to hear bands reinterpret their own material, and it can even end up resulting in something very fresh being done.
I see you've been going to Tame Impala concerts.
Honestly if they don't play it at least a little different then the album it is dissapointing. I mean a show is suppose to be a different experience than an album so the songs can be played differently
>tfw QOTSA - I Appear Missing Live On Letterman
The song's great on its own but holy shit I wish this was available in high quality somewhere
This is incredible
>Being this indoctrinated into recordings
live music is the original form. recordings came later.
The only time you should have a problem with a live show being different is if its an orchestra and they fuck up playing the score pretty badly. Orchestras should have no excuse for fucking up. The scores right in front of them, they're rehearsed the pieces, they should be able to play it right on the night, or GTFO of the orchestra.
>see someone when you're a kid that you didn't give a fuck about at the time and now are like fuck i blew it.
i saw beck open for the stones and i saw bruce springsteen in chicago. i was a kid and didn't know or give a fuck about either. i remember being all "wtf" at beck live.
what is swans
i can vouch for ween and yo la tengo having done this with many songs live. i mean, i know there's plenty of live recordings, but what i mean to say is, i got to see ween before they broke up so yeah i'm rubbing it in your face anyone that will never seen ween live.
I got two.
>studio version of song has insanely high notes
>singer can barely get that high live
>band plays songs with various forms of vocals
>play high note songs at the end
>throat is messed up from the earlier songs
>can't hit the notes
I can see them honestly trying, though.
>singer can barely get that high live
>listening to ac/dc
>live music is better than their studio music and better recorded and produced than most studio albums
Talking heads ftw
i-the guy from ac/dc, he's much older now and can't hit the high notes like he used to. fuck. DAE I"M ON THE HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHWWWAAAY TO HAIL
it was a joke nvm
In the years past dadrockers were laughed and or shamed off this board like they should be. You're fucking retarded.
I'm sure you'd like that to be true. Kill yourself.
But that's a double standard right here : Why do classical orchestra need to be sound exactly as it supposed to, and not rok/pop bands?
In fact, sometimes, orchestra plays songs in a different tempo, that depends on the conductor, but again it's not really really different. So you raise a pretty good fallacy here man.
>band is known for their amazing live performances
>only known recordings are watered-down studio releases that are said to be nothing like their live shows
>they broke up decades ago so you'll never hear what they sounded like
I've seen Primus last year, and I can clearly say that "My name is Mud" is like 9384928343 times better live. Even on video you can't hear the real sound of his bass. It's insane.
>see live show
>opening act is so out of place and terrible
>ruins the overall vibe
yes! saw primus and that song and harold of the rocks stick out in my mind as being incredible live.
also got to see them play harold of the rocks for the first time in like over a decade according to les claypool. this was in hotlanta
caught them on the Willy Wonka tour they did recently. The entire stage was covered in huge fucking inflatable mushrooms and lollipops. It was fucking nuts.
god i hate this. seeing Beck last year was kind of tainted due to this. fuck you Band Of Horses.
there's still leniency for conducor and interpretation, but the cold hard facts of the score (like notes and rhythms) should always be the same. when you're dealing with a score, you're dealing with something that provides all the information needed to reproduce the work the way the composer intended. thats why you gotta stick to it.
the reason rok/pop bands dont have to do this is that they're not playing from a score (except some touring musicians playing with big acts who actually score out live parts for their backing musicians - like top tier R&B artists.)
>hearing the album version of Black Skinhead after the SNL version
>see a band live
>they're all normies
>see swans on saturday
>literally just gira chanting with tape loops and guitar feedback behind him
>thor plays only gong and chimes
Kinda disappointing. Only real songs they played were A Little God and Just a Little Boy
>only version available is ripped from a 140p YouTube video
Most rock bands write their own material, so they have more authority on how to perform their shit, and it's just a completely different tradition. The role of the composer is very venerated in classical music, and most performers and conductors are all about reaching an interpretation that honors the composer's intentions. But some classical music does have room for improv, like many baroque thangs. Anyway, the deconstruction of established tunes is something that jazzers have done for ages, and it fits into rock music as well. Songs aren't seen as these sacred things.
>See Tycho live
>they play much louder and energetically than on their albums
AJJ's Live At The Crescent Ballroom is the best fucking live album
>that people ii
>that stormy the rabbit
>that bad bad things
How does it feel to know that on two separate occasions Swans created entire songs that were longer than AJJ's People That Can Eat People. Not to mention GY!BE, The Constructus Corporation, and Miles Davis.Who, also did the same thing.
>How far this board has fallen...
See N10. This is from like 5 years ago at least
>example is I Appear Missing
>not The Fun Machine Took a Shit and Died
Everyone agreed that list was shit. Even 5 years ago. Only tripfags pushed it as gospel. I've been here way too long. Time for me to go. Bye guys. I'm moving to tumblr.
>go to show
>have the time of my life
>decide to see the same band at their next gig
>even the banter between songs is the same
>band debuts new song live
>sounds like their best new shit in years
>band performs song live before its album release
>it's completely different from the album version
>studio version of it is never released
Guess the band
This. So many bands have been ruined by me.
The worst was when I saw The Strokes during their first (I believe) tour and they played The Tower in Philly. Jules was so fucking drunk that he was slurring his lyrics and leaning on the mic stand to support himself. Pissed me off and I refused to listen to them for almost a decade.

Fuck. It's not like i'm even that much of a guitar solo fan, it's just live ones are too long/bad

A-at least I got to smoke with Wiki the second time I saw them...
>live music is the original form. recordings came later.
I can't emphasize this enough, studio recordings are more for adding experimentation and flavor, the raw meat of the song is what is played live.
that sounds freakin sweet
>i got to see ween before they broke up so yeah i'm rubbing it in your face anyone that will never seen ween live.
Not really. Her monologues are occasionally different and the guitar solos are generally different as well as sometimes other forms of improvisation. And she occasionally adds and subtracts songs from the setlist.
