Default Re: Matt Tong

I'm a Tong fan, at least from 'Silent Alarm'. The new album hasn't really grabbed me. Seems like they're trying to be like Radiohead. But man Matt can play fast. And as for how he makes mistakes, he is very open about it. There's an interview I can't find right now where the interviewer is just asking the band how they're finding their new fame and Matt goes off about how he has trouble nailing this complex part of one of their songs, and how it keeps him up at night. The other guys of Bloc Party have said they chose Matt because when he played it was a sound they had never heard before, and they meant that in a good way.
