If my memory serves me correctly this song was never played live due to its difficulty. I love it and I reckon they would now be able to if they gave it a shot. Anyone agree?

I heard an early live version of the song. The early name of the song was Spectrum.

So yes, they played it live.

 

Here it is!:)

 

This song is really hard live. Especially the falsetto part.

how do they play it when they record it then? do they piece different parts of the hard riffs together? i always wonder what happens if you keep messing up with stuff when you're recording it... can the editors fix it?

:eek: Bellzor said fuck!

 

 

Made me lol, why? :|

 

 

 

I think I've heard it live somewhere...

Maybe I'm making that up.

I don't know.

I think I actually have it as uh... -looks at iPod- Spectrum (live). I think that's Futurism... whether it's the right title or not, I don't know.

But it sounds very hard to play...

I've heard a live Futurism

 

Sounds better as studio version though

 

That's what I've got anyway :LOL:

 

Groovy bass line :happy:

What is hard about Futurism is the vocal parts, it's completely killing Matthew in the live recording and considering he wasn't much of a singer in the earlier days, it's easy to see why it hasn't ever been a popular by them.

 

They could look into it now though, I do enjoy the song quite much.

Yeah, you can edit out mistakes in a recording. They are called punch-in's. Usually (if they're using software, which Muse does use in the studio) you'll highlight the section of music thats messed up, and record over it, playing the correct way. That way, only that section is fixed and it should be a seamless edit.

Yeah it's the vocals that are too hard.

 

The chorus is constantly up in Matt's absolutely highest chest voice range, with a whole lot og G sharps.

I kinda liked Spectrum, you have to remember it was from a time where their live performances weren't so polished anyway and their career was still quite young!

 

Futurism is one of my favourite bsides though.

apparantly it was played live at reading 2000, which means i might have seen it at leeds 2000 (never seen a set list for that gig) but i was far too much of a n00b then to know anything other than sunburn and muscle museum :(
