Remember that time John Linnell went from being a dorky teenager to being a dorky old man
"Icky" is a super-fun song no matter what, one of my favs on the album, but it’s only about A MILLION TIMES BETTER if you picture John SPAZZING THE FUCK OUT like he does when they play it live when you listen to it.
I love this performance so much. All the songs are rockin’ as fuck, and everything is always better with horns. “No One Knows My Plan” is particularly fantastic.
Obligatory John gushing: SOOOOOOOOOO MUCH ADORABLENESS in here. I think the best part has to be the dorky little dance during plan, but I also completely adore the part where he’s looking up at the ceiling while explaining how they’re NOT WEIRD AT ALL OK (yeh John you just keep telling yourself that) and the hopping around during “The Guitar.” Also that is some QUALITY HAIR.
The fact that this is what happens immediately after “No one in the world ever gets what they want and that is beautiful” makes me so happy. Profound and deeply heartbreaking thoughts combined with adorably spazzy actions—it’s the perfect summary of John Sidney Linnell, in a mere six seconds.
