I'm listening to 'Further' for the first time in ages and it still sounds great!
they were a little boring. That's about all I remember about them.
Oh, wait - I'm thinking about Gene.
it was an ACE gig
Andrew's new project :
I remember that they stopped because playing gigs was too costful...
How the mighty have fallen...
But it was quite good.
I have a few MP3s they posted at the beginning too...
and then again when they did some little fan-only show at the Water Rats before they released their 'comeback' single off the second album.
I liked some of their stuff from the first album. I still have a single somewhere from that which has a great b-side.
......is a pretty good album actually. Some of the album tracks are quite atmospheric and delicate. Didn't like the 2nd album much but "If You Have to go" is lovely. If i remember correctly the NME tried to lump them, and Mansun, into a scene they invented called "New Grave" haha
My friend and I were convinced our third-rate student band could be a New Grave hit. That's what the NME does to young impressionable minds...
but in others i wince a bit.
I put Further on in the lounge the other day and during Best Regrets my housemate said "I didn't know you liked Keane!".
I kind of saw his point a bit.
I found 'no one speaks' on vinyl last year and bought it to finally complete the collection I started as a 16 year old boy.
It always irked me that I wasn't able to get it at the time cos there were *only* 2,000 copies.
