The Twilight Sad always seemed like too much of a bunch of nice lads to actually murder their parents. I hope they didn't do that. They did though once hit the road with Mogwai and this album was originally a compilation of live tracks and outtakes intended to help fund such fun ventures.  You can now get it on vinyl for the first time and as well as their stellar original work there's covers of tracks by Joy Division, the Smiths and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs tribute to the greatest '80s party band there ever was... Modern Romance.

8/10 Clinton 11 December 2008
The 'man' has allowed me to speak at you for the last few reviews of the week. Lets hope I don't ruin it for myself and everyone. First up one of my favourite bands The Twilight Sad. I've been banging on about these for ages to the scoundrels that inhabit these dark dingy towers but will they listen? Well perhaps finally they are. The Twilight Sad are the band Glasvegas would be if their music matched the hype and didn't sound so much like Runrig. Anyway this is a tour CD called 'The Twilight Sad Killed My Parents and Hit the Road' which has been made available through Fat Cat and seems to consist of a rough but enlightening live show with a few added bonus tracks. The live shows gives some idea of how exciting the band can be in the flesh with wild out of control guitars and angry scottish man vocals. At time they come across like the perfect cross between My Bloody Valentine and The Proclaimers at others they recall angry 1980's mancs Dub Sex. The only criticism would be that it would be nice to hear some new material pretty soon but it is a tour CD and therefore the kind of pointless Joy Division and Smiths covers that fill up the CD are sort of excusable. Limited to 200 yes 200 copies.
