does he have a site? i can't find one...
what cd should i get first?
Frank Turner > Chris T-T
you can make that comparison considering frank has done one EP and Chris has released five albums showcasing a number of different styles...
But I've seen them both live, and Frank Turner seemed to have the better songs. IM O.
that Frank Turner is better than him.
However, Chris T-T is better than most people.
As for your questions, guntrip knows...>>>>>
are very different to his live shows.
in fact, his live shows when he plays with his band are completely different to both his records and his solo shows.
chris t-t > most thingsl
you should buy London Is Sinking, because Giraffes is one of my favourite pop songs ever, and 7 Hearts is beautiful. and it also has eight other great tracks on it. yep.
London is Sinking!
his website is www.christt.com
definitely buy London Is Sinking or 7 hearts over 9 songs. Can you only get hold of his live album at gigs? i want!
yeah! It's got 'Dreams of Injured Popstars' on it. Ace.
Isn't it deleted now?
It's the only one i haven't got :(
I'll copy it for you if you like.
i asked chris if it was going to be repressed, and he said it probably wasn't. then he told me he had 3 copies left and if i emailed him he'd send me one. i forgot :'(
all of them !
And really - Frank Turner better than Chris TT? Madness - one's a jobbing ex-hardcore goon with one ropey ep and the other is one of the finest lyricists of this generation.
I kid, I haven't really heard his stuff but I'd like to. But you can't dismiss Frank Turner as an ex-hardcore goon - he's one of the best British lyricists of the decade.
much anymore because the lyrics are so outdated.
it was available on the Panic Attack album and a 7" (i think), both of which are deleted, and also on the "Live Tonight" compilation which is still available.
I liked Million Dead as much as the next man but I wasn't massively keen on the ep.
9 Red Songs was one of my favourite albums last year - just check out some of the lyrics:
'A plague on both your houses
The house of money and the house of God
A curse on all your names and your stupid games
From the people you forgot
What kind of Christian are you?
What kind of Jew are you?
What kind of Muslim are you?
To do the things you do
What kind of fear do you instill?
A drug dealer selling pills
How much blood will you spill?'
covering Chris TT
I don't think his ep really did him justice, but he really is rather good live.
He sounds much better on his demo cd than on his proper ep, if he's still selling it on his website I'd recommend everyone buys it.
I got into Chris TT after seeing Frank cover one of his songs, but when I bought London is Sinking I was a bit disappointed because it didn't sound as good as Frank, I still like it though.
you can get the live CD at gigs on by mail order:
its pretty good :o)
i don't know why they don't just set up a paypal account though..
you snobrock philistine
wut is snobrock
but you should definately base your fall release schedule around this exciting new scene before Victoria Newton gets wind of it.
to compare Turner to T-T is embarassing for T-T. Turner is shit and lacks T-T's charm. In fact, he has no charm whatsoever.
