I've been to the Coldplay gig in Düsseldorf, the Bells were there and I immediately fell in love with the music although I've never heard anything of them. I became so fascinated because their music is edgy and melodic at the same time - is it just me or is this kind of music very hard to find? And Juanitas voice - never heard such a "virtuos" female rock singer. By the way: stupid newbie question but how do you pronounce Juanita? The spanish way or an english pronounciation- an interviewer did that but it sounded a bit odd to me.
I would even dare to say that they're much better live than in the studio - there's is such a dynamic between the band on stage that I cannot describe with words. Too bad that I missed half of the concert because I went to the drinking stand before they started....I hope they're coming soon to Germany as a main act. Did everyone of you ever saw them live?

Yes, it's pronounced in the Spanish way, but not with quite the same flourish that someone from Madrid or Sevilla might use.
I think most people here have seen Howling Bells live at least once. Me, six times, but others are well into double figures. I've just posted some decent quality (better than Youtube) videos (from my home town - I was there!) in the "Live" section if you're interested.
