I just saw this and had to share, one of the funniest things i've seen in a while. This Bloc Party playing the MTV Video Music Brazil Awards. Apparently, they were forced to pretend to play live, rather than properlly performing. Anyways, this is what happens when you try and make Bloc Party lip sync and stuff:



Kele isn't even saying the lyrics, and is nowhere near the mic when he is talking. Matt stops playing drums at one point and by the end Gordon has his bass off...Russel might have thought they were really playing though, he doesn't look amused by the shenanigans.

Letter to my Son



Your visits are getting Shorter



YVAGS for the win, one of their best songs in my opinion.

Why have them lip sync when the band is already there? Doesn't make sense to me but at least they were just joking around instead of actually doing it.

Lol that video isn't even slighly convincing that they are actually performing. It really just sounds like a CD is being played. Lol.

Much prefer Plans to be honest. I have to pick up their most recent stuff, haven't gotten around to it yet.

Every AWiTC B-Side is better than half of the album itself. It's crazy how some didn't make the album.

They're one of the few bands that have all good B sides in my opinion. Although I don't think I could get rid of any songs off of A Weekend In The City, besides On. I wouldn't mind if Selfish Son was actually on the album.

You gotta love the last three tracks of that album though (I Still Remember, Sunday and SRXT).

The middle 3 or so tracks are boring, but the album as a whole is still great in my opinion. BP should make a proper release of the B-sides though, like The Killers did with Sawdust. I mean the collection of B-Sides is collectively named Another Weekend.... but it would be nice for an official release of it.
