Right, there is no reason they can't play a fair amount of newer material and a good selection of classics. On the Brave New World tour they played 7 songs from that album and 15 older songs and it was perfect. They gotta realize they're letting down probably most of their fans by not treating them to the songs we really wanna hear. I can't believe they're not playing "The Trooper" or "2 Minutes To Midnight".
Didn't even hear about those vinyls, sounds like a good investment to me. I really didn't dig KoK until now, I love the new one but couldn't say how it compares with their older stuff which I found pretty boring.
If you're interested in giving et9 another chance you can download a free 16 track best of compilation from their website: http://www.earthtone9.co.uk/
Haha OK, thought it was a slim chance. I knew a guy there called Matt whose surname I could swear was Green who is into exactly the same sort of stuff as you. Goatsnake rule by the way, I really hope they decide to do another album.
