I also wanted to know- my hubby is a mad iron maiden fan and pointed out to me the similarity of the guitar solo in Knights of Cydonia and 22 acacia avenue! Was this an inspiration? It made me like maiden a tiny bit more lol.
Hi Matt, I am a huge fan of your band! I only recently found out who and what your band is as I was a bit out of touch with music! Got a bit stuck in the 90's dance music era hanging on to my youth! I am going to your 6th of December Brisbane Australia concert yeah! I think your band is awesome and talented and there should be more bands like yours who write their own material! Reminds me of when I was a kid and I loved Bon Jovi as their guitar solos were awesome! Anyway I really just wanted to say without sounding freaky that your mum drove my husband to cubs with your brother and now he is completely amazed that this band is now world famous and his wife is seeing the band in concert lol the world is super small! Anyway this probably won't make the board because it may be too personal but I just think it is cool! Looking forward to the concert as it will be my first ever!
Hi Matt, how are you? hope fine! i hope the gig yesterday was great! i miss you, see you soon in two weeks at les vieilles charrues. i'll be there with my friend Ophelie. hugs and kisses from Paris my life, your resistant micro's lover <3
hope you don't mind that I put stuff like this on your MySpace comments page,too, I just emailed my Senators and hope some other US fans will do the same. I am on the fence as to whether any sort of cyber security measures are necessary, most nerds tell me they won't work effectively anyway, but I am concerned about more infringements on civil liberties, and its possible effect on the rest of the world.
I was lucky enough to see most of Glastonbury online last night, absolutely fantastic! and my eyes were wet, though I was grinning from ear to ear, when you did Where The Streets Have No Name
despite the silly title and cover, I like this author's ideas about sustainable agriculture though I don't always agree with his politics, is your new farm going to be somewhat like his? looking forward to hearing more about it
I'm keeping an eye on this and thought you might be interested too. The good news is Lieberman's bill to give the President an Internet kill switch is not a done deal, the bad news is I'm not sure what the Senate will come up with
