Fun story. In about 2007, I found a picture of The Horrors in this magazine I had and I was like 'Hey, these dudes look cool." And so I cut out the picture and set it aside and ripped a few songs of theirs from the internet. And then Strange House came out and I dled that and it was cool and shit. I was never like, "AWWW, YEEEAAHHH THE HORRORS ARE OSSUM AND I LOVE THEM TO PIECES." Like, last year, for example, I'm going through these magazine clippings of bands I like with my friend, deciding on what I should keep and throw out and she finds that Horrors pic and says, "Hey, you want this?"
"Mm... Just keep it. I might like them enough to put on my wall one day." WELL, NOW THAT DAY HAS COME AND I WISH I KNEW WHERE THAT PICTURE WAS. LOL. THE END.

My favourite track on Skying is Ocean's Burning
The Horrors - Oceans Burning


Brett Anderson of Suede also did an interesting acoustic cover of it

LOL, Kristina. But, eh, you could just hang the tv on your wall instead. ;D And, thanks Sierra! I really like that cover.

I was watching the videos I took at the show earlier, I'm still in awe of how great it was.

Uuugggh. Such a lovely cover. Thanks for the upload, Sierra! I might rip that one to my ipizzle. Bwehehehee.

And that TV is totally on my wall right now. I mean, I already have a few pictures of The Horrors on my wall from Vogue and shit that I've accumulated over the past few years, but that was my first Horrors picture that helped me discover their music, SO I FEEL A SPESHUL CONNECTION TO IT. IF I COULD FIND IT.

IT LOOKS LIKE THIS. I THINK EXACTLY. I GOT IT FROM AP MAGAZINE. LOOOLL THAT MAGAZINE IS PURE SHIT. I HATE IT.
Omg so old. I was like 16 or 17 when I found this. Wtf.

I HAVE TO PREPARE A SUPER BADASS OUTFIT. I DON'T KNOW WHAT THOUGH. AAHFSHGSDHGLDS And also get there like 2 hours early because last time I was at Black Cat, I drove around for like an hour and half looking for parking. Luckily I had Shianne, and she called me to tell me there was a parking spot right in front of the venue. Thank god for her ;D

harharhar ;D

I've watched it like 1000000000000 times. It's so pretty! @_@

I'm so disappointed in my slight lack of enthusiasm for this band up until seeing them perform. It's kind of a bonerkill how behind I am.

At the very end where Faris fades to black.... ;D

And, I loved them before, but, they are just so fucking good live.. Now they are one of my favorites. I want to see them again. Lol. :-\

^ Oh, god. I feel ya. They're my top played band for the week. Seeing The Horrors was just such a random thing. I saw they were coming to DC and I was like, "Huh. I like The Horrors. I have all their albums. WHY NOT GO?" THE BEGINNING OF A NEW OBSESSION. GODDAMN YOU, THE HORRORS. GODDAMN YOU ALL FOR BEING SO GOOD LIVE.

Btw, Hunter. Have you washed your shirt? I'd be so scared to wash in case Faris' birds washed off D: ! I'd get that shit like... dry cleaned, lmfao XD

My MGMT shirts don't wash out because they wrote on the fabric, bit since Faris and Josh wrote on the decal thing I'm super scared to wash it. Yeah, I'll most likely dry clean that bitch. 8) lol, my mom called a dork because I was talking to her about this the other day. ;D

I JUST HAD AN EPIPHANY. What if you bought like a fabric marker pen or fabric paint and then drew over it??? To make sure the birds will never wash off?

It's good isn't it! Can't wait for the album, I'm pretty much obsessed with Joshuas guitar playing so I'm hoping for some more guitar based songs on there, although I know he messes about with the sounds of his guitar pedals that much that you can't tell alot of the time if its synths or guitar that you're hearing.
