Super Furry Animals
with Times New Viking
Paradise Rock Club 2/23/08

I don't get out to see Live music nearly as much as I'd like. So when the planets align and a baby sitter is available I jump at the opportunity to catch a Live show. Mrs. Speakers and I hit The Paradise a little over a week ago to catch Super Furry Animals with Times New Viking. As the house lights went down SFA hit the stage decked out in there cowboy garb, think The Flying Burrito Brothers without all the sparkles. From the opening of Slow Life to the final chords of Keep The Cosmic Trigger Happy they fired through an excellent set brimming with would be and should be hits. The band let there fans vote for the songs they wanted to hear during this brief US Tour. This proved to be a great idea because this set list was flawless.

Times New Viking delivered a ramshackle but excellent set showcasing songs from there Matador Records debut Rip it Off. The Ohio 3 piece has gotten heaps of praise from the indie press and after bearing witness to there Live show, I have to say the hype is right on.
