Simon & Garfunkel
What are you thinking?
The Cure (although I like much more of their output than just the singles)
The Rolling Stones
Also, you're clearly Grockle in disguise.
Pet Shop Boys
Right, I'll stop
came on in a shop yesterday. I enjoyed it.
Foo Fighters (fo real)
New Order and Field Music, who are shaping up to be a great singles band.
at someone a while back for suggesting the buzzcocks might be a singles band?
I'm in touch with tha kidz.
Dawn of the Replicants
Cooper Temple Clause
Electric Soft Parade
Funeral For A Friend
The White Stripes
bands defined as 'great singles bands' should be ones that suck at albums. and blur don't. their non single tracks > their singles. i can barely listen to the best of anymore.
but besides think tank I think the best of is their most consistent album. They're the ultimate singles band.
great singles, lots of album filler.
with all of those. Perhaps even WS because their singles often don't stand out from their albums tracks.
Especially Pet Shop Boys and The Jam.
I'd also like to be the only person likely to say Inspiral Carpets. Thank you.
I wish more bands were about the singles now. This album bullshit annoys me. I want three minutes of you, not 45. I'm not ready to make that sort of commitment, damn you!
*although I accept that most of their singles are just two tracks continually rereleased.
Nah Nahnahnah nah you got me feelin really baaaad
to Never Ever?
and if it is he needs to pst a new picture!
Does your definition of "great singles bands" refer to bands who release great songs but not great albums?
It resolved itself - she met someone at the Hundred Handed/Friends of the Bride gig at the Luminaire the other week and now she's much happier.
Which at least now means I've just got my own love life to worry about!
and the libertines- i know i know there's no hope for me.......
Lorraine (I've heard a few of their future singles on an albumsampler = ace!)
Then they released 'Diva Lady' instead of 'To Die A Virgin'.
I go with the Cure, if only because I love 'Friday I'm in Love', but that Bloodflowers album was so wank I got stares off my girlfriend for saying so.
the whole bridge over troubled water album is immensly good. every track.
bands who put out great singles but disappointing albums? In that case I'd say off the top of my head
Pet Shop Boys
And obviously most "Pop" bands. I don't understand people saying The Smiths.
