So Paul is leaving . The end of an era. Does anyone know who is to replace him?
Listened to last album yesterday.
Maybe it's time to stop...
They should have retired with dignity after the first album, which itself was half filler.
being in Hundred Reasons does either.
were unsigned, colin was working as a postman.
So he might be doing some money with HR...
because he's off on tour again.
i just mean to point out that they clearly didn't make much cash from when they were selling huge amounts of albums, so they're obviously not now..
may be exagerating...
But I see your point !
How many albums have to sell a band to live correctly ?
did not blow me out of my boots either but they were my Uni must see band and the web site states they intend to carry on.
Hopefully they'll get better with someone new.
But I'm betting they'll get worse !
will be a chap called Claude. I don't know owt about him except that he's been the 6th member of the band on tour, playing guitar and keyboards etc.
Also, I really like the new album (probably just as much as I like the 1st one) and despite the fact that Paul is leaving I'm still optimistic for their future
I wouldn't say any of them are indie.
Paul is the one without big sideburns, and spazzes/rocks out the most.
it won't be same without his shoutiness
What part - the atonal barking or the... uhm... I can't finish that sentence.
This band used to be hailed by critics as Britain's best rock band......
I do like them though.
the second album is quite average, but the other two really are very good (in my opinion).
It just seems that nowadays it's much easier to focus on their supposed fall from glory, after the first album was so successful, rather than actually give them credit for carrying on after a setback and making a good comeback.
I could have credited them for carrying on after a setback and making a good comeback - but they didn't make a good comeback. They just came out with the same stuff they got dropped for. In 2001 it was quite good - in 2006, not so good.
Repeatedly running into a brick wall. It's quite funny, but also quite sad.
they were being hailed as "the greatest new british rock band" around the same time Hell Is For Heroes were. Now Hundred Reasons are okay, but Hell Is For Heroes are a lot better and seem to be getting better and better.
but HIFH really dissapeared from even rock journalists' sights by self-releasing Transmit Disrupt.
I think they'll make another leap, but really, we've gotta hope that Burning Heart gets them some good press.
I still beleive they could be the biggest 'rock' band in the UK.
