who would win the battle of the leeds bands?
piss on anything left over?
it's "everyone thinks he looks daft" by wedding present vs a song i can't even remember by gang of four.
Evidently, wedding present win. I really wanna get George Best when I have money.
look out for the remastered version with extra songs on it.
Bizarro and Seamonsters are also essential.
and Disco Volante by Cinerama in there as well.
the wedding present are doing a CHRISTMAS TOUR! if this isn't brilliant enough, the london date is at the forum, which is a five minute walk from where i currently live!
david gedge for PM :D
I like Gang Of Four and all, but The Wedding Present just have so many good songs - Bizarro and Seamonsters are pure classics. The new one, El Rey, is pretty damn good actually, really grown on me in the last few days.
CONTROW VERSH AL
I like Bizarro and Seamonsters
But Entertainment! is completely league of its own. The only reason the rest of their catalogue is disregarded is because of how awesome that record is.
Though I prefer Solid Gold to Entertainment! Paralysed, If I Could Keep it for Myself, etc the whole album is crawling with paranoia.
Click Click, Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah, Spangle, It's a Gas.. so many great songs. It is criminal that it is so hard to get hold of these days. Clearly a reissue is in order.
Gang of Four by a million miles.
sorry, double post :(
too much apple pie
'entertainment' still sounds good. The Weddoes just sound dated and a bit shit.
70s, sub-Marxist punk-funk however...
