cos everything is over noooohowowowowwww
There's a song I haven't heard in years. I might try and find it now.
lovely stuff. makes me go all 13yearsold inside
i don't think they were as good as i remember. Shame.
i've got that new one on Tigertrap here. Not listened to it yet.
as good as you remember it being when you were 13/14 and had no braincells yet. alas its still stupidly catchy.
I was thinking about this band earlier on today as I was cleaning out my car.
Pleased to see someone else remembers them.
The album, however is pretty mediocre and that's sad.
there's a lot of stuff i was listening to at that age and before that i still listen to and enjoy, and is often even better than i remember. So. Uhm. Hmm. Yeah.
second album for me. That and 'Killing Position'.
"I will set my heart to the killing position/I will show you pain how I remember it"
Killing Position is a great song.
Did they ever release a second album? Is it easy to find the MP3s?
not fairwell to twilight though.
I think I need to dig out my tape albums.
performances ever. stage dive! on TOTP!
I have 'Fairweather Friend' stuck in my head now!
Bit of trivia. After they split Hagop fro Symposium was involved in an early incarnation of Hot Chip.
I loved them back in the day. Their performances at Reading 98 and 99 were awesome. But I don't know anyone who didn't grow up and think they were a bit shit. Oh well, good times...
Anyone know what happened to Paper Cuts, Ross' (Symposium's singer) new band. They were amazing at the STA After-Show at the Spreadeagle, then they just sort of disappeared.
I wish I knew !
That's funny - I was told he was their roadie. I suppose there's involved and then there's involved.
they're on a sort of hiatus. the drummer, toby, is playing in wojtek's band at the mo (water rats, feb 7th, with fanfarlo and the heart strings and karima francis, plug plug plug).
and while we're on the trivia tip, toby used to play in a band called hardbody, who i saw in aberdeen and t in the park about 12 years ago.
yeah, that STA gig was amazing.
no album soon then !
that video is brilliant.
i listened to this last night (not having seen this thread) and it reminded me how great they were. i was singing along and dancing round the kitchen whilst washing up. also - the first album was way better than the second
I was told Hagop played keyboard / synth for Hot Chip when Felix was ill...but anyway.
The early version of Bury You (only played live) was the best; no grandiose big guitar intro, just the simple verse bass line. Felt really epic and intense when it kicked in at the end. Symposium's gig at the 100 Club was incredible. Think I've probably seen them about 13 times and that was the best.
really hope Ross gets back onstage sometime soon. Great live performer and a properly nice guy.
the version of Bury You on 'On The BBC' live album you're talking about...
