Staying in Shape

The Siren after-party scene only further proves MisShapes' dominance

I like some of their songs, even though it is not cool to like SWR, especially since they do remind one a bit of Interpol , a comparison Warfield bristled at. "If we fit any of those comparisons, we might get defensive," he said. " 'Oh, two guys with a deep voice.' I can name about five other guys who have deep voices." They think L.A.'s music world is stronger than New York's, pointing to Autolux , Monsters Are Waiting , Moving Units, Giant Drag, and the Silverlake scene as evidence. Warfield wasn't the most forthcoming interviewee: "You interested in seeing any of the bands at Siren?" "No." "You ever been to Siren?" "No."

Siren fans evidently weren't impressed with their performance, either. One posted on brooklynvegan.com: "To be up front for Scissor Sisters I had to endure the UTTER PAIN of She Wants Revenge. Never again."

You can't imagine how much fun they're having
