i dont think ive seen them mentioned once here.anyone like/love/hate/loathe them?
Meh on record (except freddy kreuger)
Everyone else seems to like them though.
But that has shrunk to vague apathy now sadly.
I think their sound is quite immature.
they set out to be immature and fun and they are
i saw em about 3 times in 2002/2003, supporting other bands and that.
and they're funny guys undoubtedly but, after 6/7 years of it, i just find their whole 'schtik' to have worn thin.
All the best to em though. I sincerley hope they 'do a Biffy' but for the reasons stated i can't ever see anyone other than the hardcore of fans taking them seriously.
and i think youre right.they wont ever "do a biffy" in fact i dont know why im still typing youve summed them up perfectly i thin.i will love them til i die though
BUT I DOOOOOOOOOOOOOON'T!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I heart Reuben
THAT I COULD BE!!!!!
SO PETTY AND SO WEAK!!!!
are ace both live and on record
...everyone is always so sorry...
boom boom boom boom
AND I THOUGHT I HEARD YOU SAY
BUT ITS THE ONLY WAY!!!
GUESS WHAT I DID WITH MY DAY???
ALL THIS 80S INDIE SOUNDS LIKE SHIT TO ME, 'CAUSE I DON'T LIKE JOY DIVISION, I DON'T LIKE MORRISSEY
LAST BAND STOLE MY HEART WAS, EVERY TIME I DIE, I LOVED EVERY SECOND, NOW 3 YEARS GONE BY.
WHEN I HEARD WORSHIP AND TRIBUTE, THOUGHT MY DREAMS COME TRUE, BUT LISTENING TO MOST OTHER BANDS IT SEEMS THEY ALL DID TOO.
was a wee bit cringe-worthy. I def. think my preference order goes:
Racecar Is Racecar Backwards
In Nothing We Trust
Very Fast, Very Dangerous
I have a photo of me with James from when i saw them...his head dwarfs mine; he looks like Hey Arnold!
he has got a BIG face!i still havent seen them :( whenever they play its either in far away lands or i have no money or i cant get time off work!
i've seen them so much that when they play now i don't even bother. Consider it me seeing them for you
dont you get that with 65dos as well?ive seen them 5 times now and the 5th was a bit "meh ive seen what you done.its ace but.."
but luckily they were MINT when i saw them the other week. So 6 times and i'd def. go again. The only band i've seen more is, eh...One Minute Silence.
L is for Lame
i think i must of been stood too far back to appreciate the ferocity of it.i hope they go back to normal production for the new album or just something a bit more "normal"
if frank sees that he will throw a fit
onetime is where it's at
they need to take a leaf out Mogwai's book and learn how to keep things interesting. TDoSI was just a fascimile with no real surprises
await rescue is my fave of theirs.apparently mogwais new one is more "metal"
I love them, I want to have their babies.
very excellent. They're really funny, admit they're in it for a laugh, and play small but sold out shows all around the country. Good times!
or have they been playing The Joiners on a monthly basis for the past 10 years?!
they haven't played there for ages.
Their new album restored my love for them.
i hope they do "do a Biffy" so i can sell it for moneys
but its toooooooo good. can't be selling that ever.
i haven't heard their new new stuff. are they on their third album?
racecar, is amazing!
I've got the Elm Street blues.
I've got a hand like a knife rack
And I die in EVERY FILM!
I loved Scared of the Police and Blamethrower, but the album was really really inconsistent and largely pants!
They're good fun. They make me smile. Deadly Lethal Ninja Assasin has been constantly reappearing in my head since I first heard it three months ago.
Want to see them live.
Don't care if they're immature; life doesn't always have to be about grown-up stuff.
I didn't get time to read everyone's replies as I'm hopping on and off cos the big boss is back :(
if you dont have all the albums yet you should get them
Thanks for making me check!
and they've matured a lot since their early days.
Last album was streets ahead of most stuff released last year, they deserve to be a much bigger band really.
always a good tune.
Not going to change the world but who the fuck is anyway?
Shits on Racecar - it's just pop-punk in comparison. In Nothing We Trust is where it's at.
Racecar is by so far the best album that it isn't even subjective! one of the greatest drumming albums ever
gave them loads and loads of love before they got signed/when racecar came out, then seems to stop bigging them up.
but i don't care, because i read enough to get into them.
the others haven't really come close to the spirit, personality and charm of that album - not that i don't like the other two just racecar is so good
Does anyone know who the girl is singing on 'Good Luck'? She's got a really lovely voice.
from the band Arthur.
Are Arthur any good themselves?
...so I'm going to say "no", just because
