"Robot Fuck"? WTF??
That crazy Ryan sure loves his Batman and Star Wars songs I see! Ha.

Just got back. Freakin' fantastic. Ryan's vocals were pretty amazing, especially on 'Goodnight Rose'. I took loads of pictures (70 odd) and most seem pretty good (I was near the front). Will upload them later! :)

YES! The robots and lesbians are back!
09-24-2006, 06:46 PM
I just got home as well. Was right at the front :D A fantastic night, the new songs were great. Shakedown and To Be Young were great too, and I love the electric version of Dear Chicago.
Neal Casal opening was good too, will have to buy some of his solo stuff.

At last The Cardinals play the UK... certainly worth the wait.
Probably the quietest I've heard Ryan speak inbetween songs! Where were the stories?!...
The band were absolutely bang on, incredibly tight and considering there's a new member I take my hat off. The vocal harmonies knocked me out and the guitar harmonies too... What about an Allman Brothers cover for the future then Ryan?

This looks crazy.
Can't wait to hear it.
How long was he on, John?
09-24-2006, 11:05 PM
Thanks John, and man you guys must have had a blast!! I can't believe how those Cardinals just keep renewing themselves, from gig to gig. Every night seems to have its own feel, groove, whatever.....And the journey continues!! Can't wait till he reaches our shores...........

Looks like there's coming a BAT-album
09-25-2006, 02:23 AM
Jesus, it's getting impossible to keep up with the new songs, improvs, etc... I guess keep ém coming. Is Neal Casal opening this whole european leg? He's pretty amazing!

What an absolutely immense gig! New songs sound amazing -Robot Fuck will rank alongside some of Ryan's best lyrically. Whole band seemed to be really enjoying themselves. The harmonies (Peaceful Valley and Blue Hotel!) and guitar work as mentioned already were amazing - Brad's drumming especiially on the very cool version of To Be Young and of course Shakedown was great.
Funny thing - Graboff didn't really know what to do with himself during Robot Fuck - not his thing I reckon.
What a night - even the chatty students didn't annoy me that much.
Rock City consider yourself rocked!

Without doubt the best gig I've seen Ryan do and I thought he would never top the acoustic gig at Notts in February. The Cards were so tight it was scary and they seriously rocked! Great versions of Bartering lines and to be young, and how about the rockier version of Dear Chicago!!!
The new stuff sounds so good, we got get an album soon.
Can it get any better........

loud and proud , i have seen many bands over the years at the Rock City and this show is up with the best of them , worth the money just to hear that version of Monsters , heres hoping the show was recorded , everybody deserves to hear this rocking good show .

Short review from a friend ... don't shoot the messenger
Enjoyable show, but not blown away.
Same as last time I saw him, he came on and played
drums for the support act. Well, I say support act -
it was basically the guitarist from the Cardinals
playing a string of identical acoustic songs.
Main problem I had with the show was the mix. Music
was too loud and Ryan's vocals were so low it was
practically pointless. I like his voice, but it
literally could have been anyone up there - I could
barely make out a word.
Another problem I had, which is purely my fault, is
that I wasn't familiar enough with the material. As
you know, its a lot of the new stuff, which I hadn't
got round to digesting beforehand. That said, I found
a lot of it to be pretty down tempo and samey with not
Played for about 1h 50 mins.
On the up side, musically the band was excellent. I
don't think they made a duff note between them all
night, and they were obviously a tight unit.
Ryan not very chatty at all - practically the only
thing he said all night was "thanks" right at the end
before scuttling off stage.
I'd definitely think twice about seeing him again, to

hey, if you have photos, could you be so kind to send a few to me at email@example.com or on myspace.com/grandunion
great show, we were also down the front, i didnt know he was so little, although those shoes were huge,
neal and his dual solo`s blew me away
09-25-2006, 08:41 AM
by the way did it get recorded at all ?
09-25-2006, 08:53 AM
There seems to be some fixed feelings about these shows - particularly the fact that Ryan's voice doesn't seem to be coming across and the lack of chat which I think gets interpreted as lack of interaction with the audience. Everyone seems to agree that the band itself are great. Can't wait to see him and see for myself.
09-25-2006, 08:56 AM
I'm also hoping it was recorded.
I took a few photos with my phone. The quality is pretty bad, but here they are anyway:

To be honest, sounds like home is the best place for this cat.
