  1. Do they exist? I have the audio recording but i've been craving for a video, does anyone know if they're making a DVD for the Australian tour?
  2. So, I went to Europe last summer, and I was on a bus with a bunch of people driving through France or something. I had been listening to my iPod and I was just starting to fall asleep, when someone made an anouncement on a microphone. It startled me so much that I jumped in my seat. At that moment, I hear on my iPod, "And it scares the hell out of me..."
  3. Time to get excited MUSE fans! Having seen the boys at Perth, BDO - i can't say i had the best vantage point hundreds of people back. Does anyone know what the layout of Bassendean Oval will be? Pure General Admission or will they erect some seating? If anyone has any info or has been to a solo show there before let us know how it goes as a rock venue. Cheers!
  4. I'm not a troll! Don't get me wrong, Muse are pretty much all I listen too and Bellamy is a god. I've seen them live, front row standing and it was fucking incredible. I'm not saying he isn't talented, but I have to be honest, as a guitar player myself, He is not that good a guitarist! He does not play anything very technical and all their 'big hits' can be covered on the guitar quite simply. Views? EDIT: I think the poorly chosen title is giving you people the wrong idea... When I say he's not good, I mean stick him on his own, no singing, just sitting on a chair with his guitar and all he can play is very simple stuff. Now combine him with his voice, creativity, feeling and song writting and that is what makes him special. I dont been bad as in the music itself is bad. And stop saying 1000 npm is not always good, I dint say fast did I? I have tried to learn Hotel California Solo, which is fairy slow yes? Its fucking impossible. Where as the Hysteria solo is like 10 mins practise and you know it. To all you people disagreeing with me, some quotes from the man himself: "but it's not difficult what I do" "I tend to do things quite simple" "Definitely technically I'n not very good at all" I incase you still dont get it, I know this is not what makes him brilliant! It's just an observation..
  5. The purpose of this thread is to post wishes to Matt, Dom and Chris for Xmas and the New Year. I made it the previous year too. so, if you think that it's early or that this thread is useless, silly, stupid, childish and so on, please, do not post in it. thank you. it's 2 weeks until Xmas from today. We'd like to thank you for all that you gave us during this year. As always. Have a great Xmas Day, Matthew, Dominic and Christopher, full of love and peace. To you and your families. And a wonderful New Year, that will bring you all that your hearts desire. Take care of yourselves.
  6. edit: Actually based upon a line from the article in this thread. http://board.muse.mu/showthread.php?t=79941 Bellamy didn't give an interview to the Sun, hopefully he never will. I've only posted this for the fact it indicates that Muse haven't actually 'gone soft' already. There is no intention of suggesting that the Sun is not an awful newspaper. Yes the KH part is bullshit. Yes that's the whole 'article'. http://www.thesun.co.uk/sol/homepage/showbiz/bizarre/3265379/Matt-Bellamy-hints-that-Muse-could-go-soft.html
  7. Hello folks - bit of a shameless plug here but it's of benefit to you so what the hell Our Xmas bumper issue is out now and it includes a massive wall planner thingy. It used a great shot of Matt at Glasto, taken by Danny North. The other half of the year belongs to the Libertines. Here's an image of it so do what you will! http://www.nme.com/magazine
  8. well, it could sound strange, but for me they were.... assassin supermassive hoodoo knights microcuts blackout usoe
  9. I found talking about the saddest Muse songs quite depressing haha, so I thought we could discuss the happiest ones as well to lighten the mood up Sorry if this already exists, I couldn't find it in search. All Muse songs can make me really happy when I listen to them, but now that I'm thinking about it, I'm really struggling to find songs I would actually call "happy" songs. What does everyone else think? What I've come up with so far: Popcorn KOC Bliss, although the chorus can be taken negatively Invincible, or at least its lyrics Uprising Don't know about any of Absolution or Showbiz, maybe Apocalypse Please, despite being in a minor key and being about the end of the world This is actually quite hard.
  10. So, The Resistance is approaching it's first birthday (and well the artwork would make a cool cake design wouldn't it?) Now that it's had time to sink in, we've seen/heard how most of the songs sound live, had all (probably) of the single releases and it sits in our muse collection normally rather than being all new and shiny. What do you think? Made a cardboard cut out of the guys and kissed them every night for making something so magical? Still love it? Liked it but the love has grown? Hated it but now appreciate it? Liked it but now not sure? Think it's awful? Actually punched Bellamy in the face for being so rubbish? Edit: I wanted a poll! Mods!
  11. Just in case it gets lost in the other thread, some quite interesting/ funny stuff http://www.novafm.com.au/nova1069/audio_exclusive-tim-blackwell-interviews-muse_100514 "tickling and poking koalas"
  12. Let there be lights With a live show every bit as epic as their sound, they don’t come much bigger than Muse. Now The Resistance Tour is finally making its way to Australia, the band’s frontman Matthew Bellamy tells Paul Smith how things came to be so huge.

  15. I'm making bracelets that have Muse lyrics on them and I hope to sell them. But they need to be under 20 characters, with spaces, or else they will be too long. The "Love is our resistance" one I made is 22 characters and is way too long. so please, under 20 characters! Also, do you think $12 is too much to charge for them? I just need opinions. Thank you, lovely Musers ^_^
  16. Hey, Small article with an interview with Chris in Brisbane's Courier Mail this morning. Â Â Â Â BRITISH band Muse had never heard of the brunette, slightly shy author, who met them backstage in Phoenix, Arizona. She proclaimed to be a huge fan, and had written a book to their music, which was about to be published. If it was ever turned into a film, she told them, she'd love to include them on the soundtrack. That was about seven years ago, before Twilight author Stephenie Meyer had hit it big. ``We had no idea who she was or what her books and the film were about to do,'' remembers Muse bassist Chris Wolstenholme. Â But the band, who have long been a success in the UK, Europe and Australia, have Ms Meyer to thank for expanding their US audience. Their songs appear on all three film soundtracks. While they used to trawl the country playing small clubs, this year they returned to play full-size arena venues. Â It's an association Chris is happy about, contrary to some media reports. ``There was a bit of press where I supposedly was slagging (Twilight) off, saying I hated being on it and it was the biggest load of bollocks I ever heard. I said I think it was a good thing for the band. ``It was quite upsetting at the time, because obviously we know Stephenie Meyer. It all came out very, very wrong and I felt absolutely awful about it.'' The band recently got official recognition in the US receiving their first American Music Award. And Wolstenholme also had some good news of a more personal variety. His wife recently gave birth to their fifth child. ``Little Buster, he was born just a month ago,'' says the proud dad. The band had to cancel a few shows, but are back on the road in Australia, kicking off their tour in Brisbane tonight. Â Being in a band and having five kids can't be an easy thing to manage, but Chris, 33, has it sorted. ``To be quite honest, once you've gone past three, it doesn't really make much difference every one you add really,'' he says. ``I love having a big family. I always wanted to have a big family.'' The clan live in Dublin, where Chris recently moved from the band's old stomping ground of Devon. While all three band members lived in different countries for a while, there are plans afoot for the three to return to London. ``I think it will be the first time in 12 years all three of us will live in the same place, which will be great for making the album.'' Chris and his bandmates Matt Bellamy (singer-guitarist) and Dominic Howard (drums) have known each other since they were 15. There are a few skeletons in the photographic cupboard especially of the young Bellamy. ``He looked quite weird when I first met him,'' says Chris. ``He used to wear track suits and have this flat-top haircut. Matt was leaning more towards the sports group. He was into his hip-hop. And then he met Dom, and asked if he could join his band. I think he sort of wanted to pick up a guitar and join a cool band to meet all the cool girls. So, you know, in six months he had long hair and was wearing jeans with holes in and looked like the rest of us.''

  18. This is about a month old interview, done when Muse were in New Jersey. I don't think anyone's posted this before... it's from a podcast, and because I have no life I put it up on Youtube Part 1 Part 2
  19. I was wondering if anyone knows where I could buy muse merch from a shop in or around brisbane? I hope this is the right place to post this.
  20. http://www.guardian.co.uk/music/2010/nov/11/take-that-progress-cd-review "Progress takes their sound closer to that of the Killers (the blaring arena-rocker Underground Machine), Scissor Sisters (the glam stomp of Happy Now) and even Supermassive Black Hole-era Muse (the alienated electro marching tune Kidz)." http://www.independent.co.uk/arts-entertainment/music/reviews/album-take-that-progress-polydor-2133933.html "The real star here is producer Stuart (Madonna's Music)Price, who manages to turn the band into a different act for every song: Muse here, Bowie there, and everywhere an electro-pop sheen and a camp and knowing smile. (And not, note to Robbie, a smirk)." http://www.bbc.co.uk/music/reviews/qvwx "The latter sounds like he’s having a ball throughout, particularly on another Owen/Williams duet, Kidz, which exhilaratingly combines martial beats, glam guitars, Atari techno and the kind of absurd dystopian pomp ("Daggers of science evolving into violence / We're not sure where the fallout blows") usually found on Muse albums." http://www.guardian.co.uk/music/2010/nov/14/take-that-progress-kitty-empire-review "You suspect it's down to Robbie's grandiosity and paranoiac tendencies that it also sounds like Queen and Muse." I can definitely see the resemblance. Can anyone else?
  21. I didn't see it before on the messageboard so ... The first part of Exogenesis 'Overture' is used in the trailer of the upcoming "Dior Homme" advert. This advert is like a short film with Jude Law and will be broadcasted in full on 6th, September (sorry for my english ) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b8JsSkPOzrs
  22. Living The Dream http://www.smh.com.au/entertainment/music/living-a-dream-20101125-188o6.html [spoiler=Part 1]MATT Bellamy likes the drama. You can hear it in the melodramatic music of his band, Muse. You can see it in the pomp and theatre of their visceral live shows. And, if you were to be snide, you could say his dating of actor Kate Hudson is further evidence. The 32-year-old is, of course, frontman and songwriter-in-chief for one of the biggest bands in the world. The English trio - Bellamy, drummer Dominic Howard and bassist Chris Wolstenholme - met as teenagers in Devon and have expanded their fan base with each of their five albums. Initially dismissed as ''Radiohead-lite'', since their 1999 debut Showbiz, each Muse album has had more pomp, campness and sheer liberty than its predecessor. In conversation, the diminutive Bellamy is polite and relatively modest. He is a little diffident in explaining the creation of the 15-minute, three-part centrepiece that defined Muse's 2009 blockbuster album, The Resistance. What Muse have become and the role Bellamy has played in that requires something more than a polite phone manner and faux modesty, however. And it's telling that as a child, Bellamy experienced what he thought at the time were random dreams. In these, he could graphically see himself playing on the big stages of the world, headlining huge stadium gigs. Today, he can vividly recall being 18 and thinking about holding court on the stage of a stadium. Doesn't every music fan have those dreams? ''Yes but when they come true, you look back and think about it,'' he says. ''You think, is the dream seeing the future or just having the confidence, believing in it and just making it happen? It's weird. I so clearly saw some things that actually happened, certain concerts and moments, and I felt like I knew that was going to happen. It was either arrogance or predicting the future.'' The Resistance, a massive commercial success, divided critics. A common query - aside from whether Bellamy is bonkers - is whether he is, in fact, taking the piss. The album features an orchestra, operatic tracks and air-combat sound effects. There are tales of civil unrest, the rise of a shadowy superpower and the so-called cowardly resistance to corporatisation. Oh and a love story: a romantic narrative transforms into a reflection on life, using love as a key to escaping the world's problems at large. ''I like the album,'' he says. ''It's got some very different things on it and they seemed to work.'' Much of the album was written in the throes of England's current economic crisis. Bellamy's London flat is close to the US embassy and he would watch each week as the protests grew larger and larger. It also motivated him to revisit George Orwell's 1984 novel, the first time he had read it since high school. In fact, Resistance was based on the book's narrative; the theme was a love story against a backdrop of civil unrest. ''That definitely had an impact,'' he says. ''There was a sense of uprising and a feeling that people might crack. Like what happened in Greece, for example. England was quite close to that. There was a feeling that it was time to rise up against the bankers and politicians and make change.'' The Resistance did not generate the hit singles of previous Muse albums. It did, however, help the band grow their fan base. This past European summer, the band headlined nine stadium shows, averaging crowds of about 70,000. They have closed stages at Wembley, Stade de France, Coachella and Glastonbury, where Muse were set to face off against U2 before Bono's back ailment put paid to the Irish rockers' headlining performance.

They have closed stages at Wembley, Stade de France, Coachella and Glastonbury, where Muse were set to face off against U2 before Bono's back ailment put paid to the Irish rockers' headlining performance. ''I was nervous,'' Bellamy says. ''When we found out U2 weren't playing, I thought I'd get Edge involved and do a U2 tribute, because a lot of the crowd bought their tickets expecting to see U2. I was blown away that he was into the idea.'' Bellamy says the band also learnt from their slots supporting U2 last year. ''A lot of bands treat the people they work with like shit,'' he says. ''U2 don't do that. We're more like that with our crew now.'' He also studied U2's stagecraft. This coming tour, for instance, will be Muse's first experience of playing in the round at arenas. Bellamy's mind began to wander as they toured with U2. Could Muse cope with being as big as the Irish superstars? You adapt, sure. But to play a show every night in which the band pushes itself emotionally and also ups its showmanship is daunting. ''I'd be into it for sure,'' he says. ''I've always been one where we have to rise to different challenges as a band every year. You raise the bar and go with it. You think it might all go wrong but often you want to even prove yourself wrong.'' There's also the small matter of proving others wrong. Like, say, Bellamy's infatuation with conspiracy theories. When you write a song that explores ''megalomaniacal'' foreign policy makers that he believes view the world as a chessboard to be manoeuvred, you have to be prepared for some blowback. ''From day one, we've had screaming, negative abuse and everything in between,'' he says. ''If you let that influence you, you start to let it affect your writing and then it's not coming from a real place.'' Daunting to follow up? ''All our albums have done a bit better than the one before. It's been gradual. This album did well but it wasn't like our debut was massive and everything is in its shadow. So none of those fears ever come.'' Muse play Melbourne's Rod Laver Arena on December 14 and 15.
