Miguel Grazina Barros

Me and my gf saw Julian Casablancas + The Voidz live in Portugal last year (2018).
They were the last band to perform that night. When they started, half the crowd had left because most of the people were there to listen to hip-hop.
The sound was terrible during the whole concert, I guess the sound engineers are not used to mix a real band nowadays, with real instruments...
There were around 100 people at the concert at that point. Julian couldn't hear himself on the stage, he left several times. At first, he seemed happy and joked about it, then he got mad as he had to interrupt most of the songs.
At the end, some people asked him to play "The Strokes" and they began to play "I'll try anything once".
Halfway through, he stopped. Once again, he couldn't hear himself on stage. He left.
Some more people left, but the rest of us started asking for this song "Human Sadness".
He came back and suddenly the Voidz played this song. It was incredible. The sound became nice.
When they finished, Beardo came to me and gave me his guitar pick. I didn't ask for it, but I guess he saw me dancing the whole concert.
I'll never forget this concert, I have the pick as a symbol of that day.
They were amazing despite all the troubles at the beginning of the gig.
Thank you for this concert <3.

This particular concert became quite famous for its technical issues :)

Dammit... the slow part after 4:15 is my favorite. Starting with the lines,
"He wanted it more than me, I suppose.
I was in a rush to wait in a line."

The whole song has depth and speaks of society but these lines are great. Closely after these are some more favorites,

"just walk me thru it, tell me what to do i'll do it
show me where to go -- don't get angry so -- quickly,"

Very discerning lyrics in an already great music. Thank you Julian Casablancas

Lyrics: vanity overriding wisdom, usually common sense
Should I delete it, you said you'd read it
You promised you would never ruin it with sequels
I wait for you on and on

Beyond all ideas of right and wrong there is a field
I will be meeting you there
Beyond all ideas of right and wrong there is a field
I will be meeting you there
Beyond all ideas of right and wrong there is a-

The moon's a skull, I think it's grinning
The room is full of people now I think it's spinning
Wanted you, didn't ask for nothing
Wait for you on and on
And I don't need your tie, I don't need to, tired of saying it
We don't need more talk, don't empty out your canteen on the desert floor
Ahhh, it's all my fault

Never wanna spell it out, I just want to say that it is all my fault
I could never spit it out, I don't wanna fix your tie
Never want to say we're sad, thankful that we got some chance
I know you won't get back your time, I wish that you could take it back

Beyond all ideas of right and wrong there is a field
I will be meeting you there
Beyond all ideas of right and wrong there is a field
I will be meeting you there
Beyond all ideas of right and wrong there is a field
I will be meeting you there

He wanted it more than me, I suppose
I was in a rush to wait in a line
Now I hear echoes of my old self
This is not the way to be
All at once, I lost my way

Is it not true, the things that we did?
Come here at once and look what they did
Come here shut down and tune in tonight
Learn the words that they teach you without you realizing it
Come here sit down and watch some TV
Mine all mine, wait your turn
Cross my cross, slice his hand
Not your son, not your friend, not your enemy
I rely on the little things to get me by, conscience says "I'm ok"
You don't hear what they say "He's not my son, search his home"
Off to war, it's time to go hide inside

Soft skin, weak chin
Just walk me through it, tell me what to do I'll do it
Hurry hurry, that's my baby, ohh, do what you can
All the time, he waits for me
And now we talk from time to time
Hits you on the head when nobody's there
Then he says "Come here could you fix my tie?"
It's never gonna be to be is not the way to be
Show me where to go don't get angry so quickly, fuck depression

Beyond all ideas of right and wrong there is a field
I will be meeting you there
Beyond all ideas of right and wrong there is a field
I will be meeting you there
Beyond all ideas of right and wrong there is a field
I will be meeting you there

Understanding is more important than love
If not money will always trump justice
All is lost, I'll find my way
So I say to be is not to be, to be is not the way to be

I know what you mean. I listened to this band for the first time yesterday and I thought "there's some vague reminiscence of Casablanca's vocals here".

Its interesting that this song samples Mozart's Funeral Mass in D minor, which is the last piece he wrote.
