Great deals on musical instruments
There's some 'different' guitar action going on in the Bloc Party ranks, it seems.

The four-piece group are well known to include electric guitars among their music instruments.

Band member Kele Okereke has told the Yorkshire Evening Post that his group's members have seen a change when it comes to their playing and interaction.

Chatting about the topic of Four, the group's most recent LP (which contains tracks such as Kettling, So He Begins To Lie and Day Four), he went on:

"I guess as it has wild guitars in terms of our first two records but in terms of the way we are playing these guitars it's still something we haven't really done before".

He said their playing appeared to be "different" from his point of view.

Bloc Party's previous LPs have counted Intimacy and Silent Alarm among their ranks.

Newcastle and Glasgow are among the locations that Bloc Party are set to visit while touring.
