I wonder if ANYONE on here would like them?
and A Million Dollars and the one about Yoko Ono. Which may or may not have a slightly racist Japanese accent bit in it.
I can't remember the racist bit though. Did it mention 'slitty eyes' or something?
They've got a lot of ratings
My friends played One Week in their covers band at a party a few months ago. Funny at the time.
and always slip in a cover when we play live.
Also the profile says they are from Yorkshire...
= the most productive thing I have done thus far.
I noticed that too! Pretty sure they aren't from Scarborough..
they are from Scarborough Ontario.
Changed it to just Ontario.
Aww. I went to Scarborough for my birthday. If I'd realised they lived there I might have stayed for One Week.
*Kills self horrifically in the face*
I was just going to post this selection of words:
i've only just got used to seeing that array of letters and reading
Besnard Lakes (or whatever) this is just getting confusing.
I put out that first BNL single in 92, and it's the only record I've ever put out that my Dad liked, and it's something I've always been slightly ashamed about.
Then when our folks moved house in 2001 me and Robin (AC30) had to go down there, hire a skip, and drag 2000 of the fuckers out of the loft and into the skip (along with hundreds of other crap we put out that didn't sell...).
...BNL still have a really big fan base in this country. They still manage to sell out Theatres every time they come over. I personally love them and I'm not ashamed to admit it!
I think part of the reason for the hatred is because their only big single on this side of the Atlantic was One Week and most people view them as some shit novelty band when really there is so much more to them than that. For every One Week or Yoko there's a War On Drugs or The Flag.
Great live band too :D
