so so good
anyone tell me more about them?
makes fx pedals for a living, I believe:
this band. Was listening to Ocean earlier and it's absolutely stunning.
get it from tonevendor.
wish they would come over to the uk.
However when part of the publicity is always "ooh, they are sooo loud, they like, turn everything up to eleven" then a small part of me starts reaching for my revolver.
That said, when they come to the UK, I'll be there like a flash.
They're pretty much everything I hate about a band. And they *so* want to be MBV. And I hate that.
quite mbv. but i like that. it's definitely no cheap rip off.
kind of sound a bit like Isn't Anything. But I hear more JAMC, in a way, what with the fuzz and all. Or Serena Maneesh, actually.
Either way, I likes it. 'My Weakness'- you sexy bitch.
JAMC earlier in the year?
hardly sound like MBV at all. Joy Division, Swans, JAMC, yes. MBV, not so much. And some of the sounds and textures Ackerman gets out of his guitar are fucking astonishing.
There's absolutely nothing original about them, but they do it so well who cares?
Haven't they also just toured the states with BRMC.
If you like A Place to Bury Strangers, you will probably be really into Oliver Ackermann's previous band, Skywave. Their final album, Synthstatic, is a masterpiece. Do whatever you can to get a hold of it.
yes.. check out Skywave as well, I think they were one of the best post-'shogaze' (whatever that means now) from the 00's..
skywave are the shizny
total destruction or some shit. extremely heavy distortion pedal, with a small custom to it. i like the fact you can choose not to have any colourings/designs on it.
85 quid including shipping, i might send him an email and see if i can try and get a CD sent too
