juliette lewis and the licks.
the obvious choice but at least i got in there first
their first album was massively popular
Juliette and the Licks also had her preband stature to keep it going for a while
Neither hardly sold anything, certainly in comparison to the amount of press they get.
"With five and a half million copies sold, it has been ranked the 16th biggest-selling album of the millennium so far in the UK"
I assume you're talking about Keane here. I do know how to reply to threads right motherfuckaaaa
I was talking about Juliette and the Licks and got crossed wires from that as well.
i guess i could've made it clearer
so much lol.
get a record deal in the first place?
The ghost of L Ron pulling strings perhaps?...does anyone here actually think they are any good? they have to be one of the worst live bands its ever been my misfortune to see.
doing a promo for a Juliette and the Licks show... and he stopped and said "you don't want to see this show, they're really awful." Ha!
because people are so horrible to them.
doesn't mean they don't have loads of fans, mass appeal etc.
(i assume that was to me btw)
The first one sold well, and was really good.
amazing they were allowed to make the first one to be honest
trying to get at about keane. i just didnt want to be too nasty
that i really dislike leane.
They bring joy to thousands - leave the boys alone!
My image of them is shattered forever. How could they do such a thing?
at least there is someone round here on the same wavelength as me...
and theyre meant to be nice educated boys...
The Kaiser Chiefs...
you mean "even if their first album failed and cost a lot" to their record company :
didnt think of that one. well done
No idea what happened with Antisocial, was like the label just gave up on it.
I'm going to ripp Berretta and Forward to iTunes again, I miss those Dublin days.
and released to other albums there...
I meant I don't know what Interscope were thinking of with 'Antisocial', it came out to a bit of press after some pretty decent 7"s... and then nothing...
Their third album sucked, but 'Forward' will always remind me of moving to Dublin. :)
Their label shouldn't have released a mini album a few months before the album... The small hype about the band already had died !
Maybe sentimentality is driving my praise of it, but I think it's a pretty solid album.
Just opened it to stick it in my laptop and the receipt fell out. 30 May 2002! Aw!
is a funny one - their first album went top 20 and had a load of publicity put into it post-'play (they're namechecked in Mitch Benn's Everything Sounds Like Coldplay Now too), and I've just had to check Amazon to make sure that their second album has actually come out. Even the second Rakes album has had some press coverage.
after the re-release of a song that was on a advert, no ?
And with the number of singles released and the promotion they made, I'm beting the record company losed a lot of money ( which explains why there was only one single and no promotion for the second album... Contractory obligations before dropping the band ? )
i only knew about the first when someone on here posted it was in fopp for about £4 a month after release or something like that.
Average band, awful first album, second one coming out less than a year after the first one. strange indeed.
And they're shit anyway
Canny go wrong with a bit of shinobivsdragonninja
the third one though. dogshit.
well, they say it's recorded. seriously, who bought the first one!
i guess someone at their label is taking a massive risk and hoping that they can claw back some of the 1000s they spent on the first one.
I remember the Fallout Trust, their first album cover was scary as fuck
Their first album was actually great
if the band's first album made a lot of money, they got a lot of exposure, they have some sort of connection to popular culture. Well, they're hardly not going to get to make another album (unless the first bombed, which is only the case with a few of the examples). And even then its hardly "inexplicable"
Unless this is just another "bands what u think r well shit n ting" thread. In which case i'm DREAAAAAADFULLY sorry
what you mean is bands such as Haven, The Open, Alfie (who managed to get to number 4 or something ridiculous) and Aqualung.
