Just thought of them for some reason when I replied to the Howling Bells thread.
Weren't they a great band
Yes I loved them.
Last 2 albums are really meh...
Some bands don't know when to stop.
But they had 3 very good albums with great singles and amazing B-sides.
and are apparently still popular in Germany.
on the same lines as echobelly... i got a demo through yesterday, and its fucking excellent. reminded me a bit of echobelly, the heartthrobs, early sleeper and maybe a wee bit of throwing muses. the band are from bristol - been around a couple of years i think, called Santa Dog. Check out the track "belle de jour" on their myspace:
on a more relevant note - i put echobelly on once in manchester at the banshee when they had just started out - and they had a digeridoo player!
as I also suddenly thought of them for no reason. I had Great Things going round my head for ages.
That band up above are pretty similar to Echobelly....the singers no Sonya though
