Are there any bands to make the pain less bad
'Avast!' they remind me of the get up kids a little...
I Am The Movie, REALLY Get Ups influenced, and bloody good too. Second one's good, lost interest after that. If you can get hold of the songs '1000 Paper Cranes' and 'Throwdown' off their first EP they literally sound like early Get Ups covers.
With 'Overdue', 'Campfire Kansas' and that on it. On A Wire is it? A gem f'sho...
true. its actually brilliant. then they got scared cos none of the pop punk fans liked it and so made another pop punky one again. fools.
And 'Something...'. They were both great.
I want to listen to it now. Agreed on Guilt Show, was a real disappointment. Wa
i saw them 5 times or so so its not that much of a problem
i never saw them at all!
to loads of nostalgic stuff I used to love like this recently like Spuerchunk and Built to Spill and The Get Up Kids and Descendents. I miss it all (although hopefully Built to Spill will tour again soon).
Maybe email them and they'll reform or summat?
is in My Chemical Romance. Can't see him leaving that sweet job.
should lessen the pain, non?
well lead singer Matt Pryors current band The New Amsterdams are touring in May. Very similar to the get up kids, also on vagrant records. playing night and day, manchester, cargo london, thekla bristol and abc2 glasgow
at first I didn't even know they were connected to Get Up Kids, that's how impressed I was.
Sunny weather and all...Campfire Kansas never fails to bring a smile to my face.
Yeah, James DeWees is officialy joining My Chemical Romance as of the next album, so it's unlikely his album (Reggie and the Full Effect) will see the light of day for a while.
is pretty much the same as the next. He does good work in MCR.
not sure if he is anymore. He's a true legend though.
it's my favourite Get Up Kids album, some fantastic autumnal indiemo songs on there.
I miss them too. Something to Write Home About and the Red Letter Day/Woodson EP are my favourites.
I will stick up for Guilt Show though -I think it's got its moments.
I wish they'd played over here a bit more. I only saw them once and that was at Leeds.
I didn't know the New Amsterdams were playing - I'll probably go along to that one if I can.
pop punk record of my high school years.
I still cry to Something To Write Home About.
DOO DOO DOOO DO DA DA DA DOOO
in this order:
four minute mile > that woodson ep > something to write home about > red letter day ep > on a wire > that last record.
great band. very much of their time.
Something To Write Home About is one of my favourite albums, full stop. It's basically the pinnacle of that whole pop-punk-emo subgenre, every song makes you want to dance and cry and shout all at once. It's perfect.
On A Wire has some awesome moments too. I really need to give Four Minute Mile a proper listen. Guilt Show kind of sucks though.
has Man of Conviction though
so it has a place in my heart
