Ultimate Fan Setlists: Asobi Seksu
Recently, Pearl Jam had a fan pick the setlist for one of their gigs. Bands such as The Flaming Lips and R.E.M. have taken requests online in the past, as well. What would you do if given such a golden opportunity? For a hypothetical dream set from Radiohead, Simply Fuss Free opted for b-sides and other unplayed rarities. What about something completely different? For example, how about venturing out of the arena and into the club for someone like Asobi Seksu?
According to fellow fan Mohamed El Amin, his number one wish for seeing them live is "Definitely 'Stay Awake.' I want to sing/dance/walk/sleep/fuck/a billion other things to that song." Well said. Possibly the band's most breathtaking moment, "Stay Awake" was released back in 2007 as a limited edition 7", but is still available digitally on iTunes, Amazon, and as part of Adult Swim's Warm & Scratchy compilation. For this installment of Ultimate Fan Setlists, Simply Fuss Free has attempted to strike balance between old and new, drawing from all eras, and incorporating some of their outstanding b-sides.
