can i get a LOL?
they're selling their album on vinyl for £1 in sister ray.
i only have MP3s of it, i've been trying to find a proper CD copy of it for ages.
this one time, i got 4 of their singles for 80p from a record shop in Islington.
i saw them live TWICE.
anyone else boast that honour?
i think he's got nearly all of their stuff?
but I didn't saw them live !
Oh the shame...
and levitation once, does that count.
bic now plays guitar for the pet shop boys live band
get with it.
Dark Star were good !
But Levitation were much better !
listening to the album, they sound uncomfortably like The Music at times.
but really not in the same league for me...
they were really good live. i remember one song where the guitarist would use an e-bow (i think) and make his guitar "scream". that was cool.
I have an ep of theirs, white and cardboardy. I saw supporting someone quite big a few years ago...
Can't remember who.
The Charlatans in about 2000
they only had 5 or 6 really good songs.
The rest ( and their B-sides ) were certainly less good...
not The Music
The Music have only bad songs !
But they split up the week before the XFM Freat Xpectations Festival. I think Kingmaker replaced them on the bill.
By that I mean Great
ace! i was listening to this the other.
the remix of Graceadelica by Black Star Liner was... nay... IS STILL amazing!
I've got a copy of their shelved 2nd album... no stand outs like Graceadelica or I Am The Sun, but a solid album. Anyone heard Francolini's new project Dragons? Shit name, but it's in a similar vein.
It was called 'Munich'.
"As of 2006, the band have stated that they would still like to release their second album which they hope to get back from EMI this year."
Was damn great.. I remember seeing them on Jools Holland playing 3AM and I was completely mesmerised.
Considering he probably had Space or some other late 90s shite on the same show, it was a bolt out of the blue!
they played cov tic toc in march 93, with spiritualized and the aphex twin, and i have to say, were fucking amazing.
but they split a week later.
Zurich has leaked onto soulseek. I've only heard the first track so far (Strangers And Madmen) and it's really good. Much more accessible than anything off of Twenty Twenty Sound.
Far better than TTS, just a shame it only lasts for 7 measly songs. I really hope it gets released next year. People deserve to hear songs as fabulous as Bigger Than Love and Perfectly Simple.
