Criminally underated!! - 'Cruise Yourself' a five star classic!
Have they got anything new on the way anybody?
yeah i fuckin love them! saw them last year at the touch&go block party..not sure what they're up to at the moment..playing out a bit but otherwise no word...?
was a return to form. The album on Geffen was awful, I couldn't sell it for 25p in a second hand shop. The guy who ran the place said it would just take up space and he was probably right.
On http://www.gvsb.com/ it says they are just doing the odd gig at the moment.
i have Freak*on*ica and House Of GvsB. i prefer the latter. it's music i would describe as "slanty", even though I don't know why or what I mean.
I can't believe I missed them do it at Don't Look Back (with part chimp supporting, gah!), but apart from freak*on*ica they actually developed from there, will have to check the last album out now...
Yeah, that was one was pretty poor. The polished production didnt suit them at all. Still not heard the last album..
was what ruined that album. The most recent one (You can't fight what can't see) was a return to the scuzzy production of old.
It got terrible reviews and I used to see it everywhere looking sorry and pathetic clogging up bargain bins so eventually decided to give one a home. It was fine....
is AMAZING. LOVE GVSB! PRIMALONAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA
Be cool if they were playing the Carling festival this year. Can only dream.
...is as great as Cruise Yourself. They're the best two. Fun Eastern Europe tour diary on their website at the mo, inc a terrifying story explaining why you want to avoid contact with Russian police at all costs...
To this day, some 15 years or so after its release, I can't get some money out without going 'c'mon CASH MACHINE. Duh nur nur nur!'
but they've never been my favorite band. 'Glazed Eye' is a pretty good tune though.
and have seen them more times than I remember. Probably 6 or 7 times.
Criminally under-rated, and always had really good support acts on tour with them. (Sloy and Brainiac are the two that stick in the mind)
Venus and House are the best clearly. Remember missing them when they toured Freak*on*ica. I wanted a t shirt from then. Saw them at Primavera but the sound was awful. Or my ears were shot by then. great band.
