Are Biffy bringing out Who's Got A Match? as their next single? I saw it on Q with a video made up of live clips

^ Yeah. It's the sixth and last single to be released from Puzzle.

Saw them at Brixton in November. They were amazing. They played almost all of Puzzle and a minimum of 2 classics per album. During Glitter and Trauma thousands of pieces of glitter were dropped from the ceiling. I collected loads in my pockets and still have 'em now. ^ o ^

I really used to like Biffy. Then Puzzle came out ... ****, killed the band for me.

Granted, "Puzzle" isn't Biffy's best, but I think it has some really good tracks and I wouldn't say it ruined them for me

I think Machines is an incredible song

Puzzle is their worst album. It's just a bit too mainstream for me. Still brilliant but not as good.

For anyone who's only heard Puzzle era Biffy the 10 essential tracks you should download first are:

Joy Discovery Invention
Justboy
57
Bodies In Flight
The Ideal Height
Toys Toys Toys Choke Toys Toys Toys
All The Way Down: Prologue & Chapter 1
Glitter And Trauma
Some Kind Of Wizard
There's No Such Thing As A Jaggy Snake

^ I would add 'My Recovery Injection' as that was one of the songs that got me into Biffy.

BIffy are the best band I have seen live.

Saw them 4 times last year but couldn't make it to their mini-tour atm

But yeah, I love them. Best band ever IMO.

How's Biffy Clyro supposed to be pronounced? I've heard a few alternatives.

How else do people say it then?

Surely "BIFF - EE CLY - ROW" makes sense?

Ive just started to get into biffy clyro, i picked up puzzle, and it seems pretty good. I need to pick up some of there earlier stuff like some of you have suggested. My favourite songs on puzzle are 9/15ths and Machines.

^ . And mitch, get Blackened Sky next as you like Puzzle. It's quite accessible and doesn't have as much experimenting as The Vertigo of Bliss and Infinity Land.

I only have Infinity Land and Puzzle. Which album should I get next. My favourite songs are Living is a Problem, Saturday Superhouse and My Recovery Injection.

Blackened Sky gets worse towards the end. Vertigo of Bliss is consistently brilliant. Join my group if you havent. I know there is some Biffy fans out there
