* - Or 'The Automatic Automatic' as they're knowin in America.
looking like he was enjoying himself at Green Man. Had to do a double take when i saw him. He had a nice Sonic Youth T Shirt on too.
he occasionally plays keys for a Newport based country-ish band that sound a bit like Bright Eyes, they're called Gethin Pearson & The Scenery.
Them fucked then.
"he is leaving the band after their appearance at reading"
because of their appearance at reading?
in interviews, he liked totally different music than the stuff he was making with The Automatic? It's Busted all over again.
he did make the band what they were (basically annoying)
but i was hanging out with them last night and all seemed perfectly normal.
Just texted their manager:
"No worries, and heh Pennie's always leaving the band. Nah alls cool xxxx"
from a better source than their manager.
colin roberts, calm down
exact quotes from the singer:
"pennie is more about the image than the music"
"if we'd known pennie was going to be on the front cover i wouldn't've agreed to do this interview."
is he actually leaving?
He joined them like a month before their deal. He's a total cunt hole.
no he didn't.
he was there at least a year. maybe a month before they got a manager or something?
He did make the group. The Automatic would be nothing without him.
Anyway, I was watching an interview with them on T4, and they said they'd been going for a few years. He joined after they'd written the songs, and basically didn't do anything, apart from play a keyboard that no-one can hear.
I know he's bi, anyway. I saw him getting it on with this lad in Manchester.
He made the band great, they will be nothing without him!
that this is true.
Can't remember which one though. They pre-empted it, which is why it is possibly on their wiki page.
