Here's my tab for Bloc Party's Song For Clay, off the new album. It's... nearly perfect, I guess.

Guitar 1: Kele Okereke
Guitar 2: Russell Lissack

_______
|Intro|
'''''''

       Bbm           F           F#      C#   G#
'I am trying to be heroic in an age of modernity

      Bbm           F                 F#          D#m   D#m7
I am trying to be heroic 'cause all around me history sits

      Bbm           F                 D#m         C#   C#M
So I enjoyed and I devoured flesh and wine and luxury

          Bbm          F               F#      F#
But in my heart I am lukewarm, nothing ever really touches...

Guitar 2
I guess it's not possible to play it exactly as it's in the album, so, just use a wah 
or pitch shifter -1 to mess around on this first bit.

The same thing as the build up riff, with Guitar 2 playing the variations on the 3rd and 4th time.

That's it, hope it was any help. Sounds nearly perfect to me. :)

this tab is pretty much perfect, except one thing. the 3rd line in the intro you have C# then C#m, it goes C# to G# just like in the first line. Picky I guess, just thought it should be known. Also, chrissya8 the chord forms are A chord forms & E chord forms, both barre chords.

A type:
e-0
B-2
G-2
D-2
A-0
E-

or in this case, A Minor type:
e-1
B-2
G-3
D-3
A-3
E-1
the chord here is Bbm, not Am, Am is just the type, you get it?

E type:
e-0
B-0
G-1
D-2
A-2
E-0

So all the A type chords are Bbm, C# D#m D#m7 and the E type are F F# & G#.

Also, this is how you play D#m7:
e-6
B-7
G-6
D-8
A-6
E-

You just remove your finger from the g string where you're fretting the 7th fret, simple as that!

Hope this helps and isn't confusing.
