anyone remember them?
and what other bands can you think of that died really early?
but not anything they did. What about The Crescent? They were from Liverpool and were supposed to be huge in the wake of, erm, Coral-mania, except they weren't.
were going to be huge according to teletext. Seems like no one really cared.
How amazing were they?
Also The Upper Room, Cord, Fields & Morning Runner.
Are brilliant live but it doesn't translate to studio and recorded material.
Larrikin Love not heard of them for a while.Have they gone yet ?
The Others. I watched the episode of Nevermind The Buzzcocks with the singer on it the other day. The whole hype about their band revolved around him smoking crack and texting fans and nothing to do with their extremely basic and terrible music.
and their album was OK...
On the same short-lived label, Medium21 and Agent Blue had the same kind of short life...
from what i remember
..and they were a bunch of 'kevin & perry' style sulking twats, the drummer was a nice bloke though.
I still have loads of giant posters of theirs from Traffic.
of vhs or beta no less than 3 hours ago on triple J
they supported the coopers. also saw medium 21 a couple of times, supporting jimmy eat world even. was hoping that would mean that they wouldn't be around for very long, but alais they took over world like lots of other shite bands.
I N F A D E L S
because I loved The Rain Band, I still wear my t-shirt with pride and only yesterday I was listening to a classy Medium 21 b-side entitled 'Honeymoon herse' - its ace!
Plus I own an Agent Blue single and really liked Morning Runner too at the time. Also VHS or Beta in Liverpool was one of the best gigs ever! (although really that was because of forward russia and we are scientists being on the same bill).
The Crescent once described The Coral as a 'Joke band' - how ironic.
Dear me, ill have to take up a new hobby...
