Yay or nay?
i really mean this.
It was inspired by your thread: Gang of FOUR; The WEDDING Present; FUNERAL for a Friend.
"Escape Artists Never Die" is a tune
but it's a big yay from me. They sound pretty rubbish now. :(
It's going on now.
i loved it when i was... errr 17? i suppose.
i can't remember the name but i used to love the (second?) last track, with the line "I'LL WALK UNTIL MY FEET ARE BLEEDING!!" yeah
i don't have it with me or on my computer though.
Oh god, when I opened the cd case a rather faded gig ticket of theirs fell out; dated 5 years ago. :S
i saw them at reading, but i think that was the only time. was good fun though. i think i actually missed half of the white stripes to go see FFAF :P
That was a great gig though. Million Dead supported and were probably the best support band I've ever seen.
I'd miss the whole of the White Stripes to see FFAF to be honest.
'Bend Your Arms To Look Like Wings' = massive tune.
I HOPE YOU CAN SAVE ME!
I HOPE YOU CAN SAVE OUR WOUNDED HEEEEEEAAAARRRTTTTTTSSSSSS!
and the sand digging thing, that was good. Also, whilst drunk, they were great live. Great gig - Fightstar = "YEAR 3000".
On the EP which came out before it.
I've got them somewhere. Probably worth a few bob now.
WATERRRRR! BROKEN GLAAAASSSSSS!
AND PULL THE TRIGGER!!!
I love occasionally listening to this album, along with The Fake Sound Of Progress, to remind me how cool both FFAF and Lostprophets once were.
the fake sound of progress
They're not even in the same league.
Do me a favour don't eeeeeeven think of meeee noooow.
I haven't listened to this for AGES. Not since I saw them at the Underworld as 'Wake For A Mate'.
though it is JUNO
i made a girl a mix cd in return for a cdr of the first ffaf EPs. she never made it. she came to see my emo band at the time, and i changed the words to one of the songs to "where's my funeral for a friend cd BITCH" repeated.
anyway, This Years Most Open Heartbreak is still my favourite song ever
"my friend ran the 1st funeral friend for a fansite" i wont let him forget this, esp. when he's trying to be taken seriously.
are the only band forums I've ever posted on <3
I remember that as well! I had to stand outside the tent for most of their set, but it was so good.
FOR MAKING ME
IN YOUR EYES.
Albums have just passed me by completely. Very average/boring!
Jimmy Eat World and Funeral For A Friend = my fave bands of all time.
I literally cannot wait until next Wednesday at KCLSU.
It's going to be amazing.
Waterfront Dance Club is awesome. It's on their Myspace, and another newbie Beneath The Burning Tree.
The "GO!" doesn't come in there :(
I love that album so much, it makes me insanely happy...especially 'She Drove Me to Daytime Television'.
I LIKE THE WAY YOU CRYYYY!
BREAK MY HEART AND BREAK MY HANDS AND LET ME DOWWWWN!
DROP IN! DROP OUT!
ahhhh their ep stuff was great.
Quality album, my 3 fav tracks though are the b-side 'The art of american football' and EP tracks 'Kiss & Makeup' & 'This Year's Most Open Heartbreak'
Overall though top banana init?
2nd album was a bit shite though
Wasn't on Casually Dressed, but a b-side on the Escape Artist's single.
its amazing if it is!
FOR MAKING ME
IN YOUR EYEEESSSSSSSS
what can i say?
and i see 'studio updates' for album 4.
They had a third album????????
it can't be beaten.
Hours was ok for a few listens, but it never had the staying power of the first album sadly. I didn't bother with the third.
this album as well just so I could have all the b-sides.
I CAN SEE THE HEADLIGHTS AND PAVEMENTS,
MY LEGS CAN'T CARRY ME THAT FAR,
IF THIS DISTANCE ISN'T ENOUGH THEY'LL CRY ANOTHER RIVER TO SEE YOU DROWN.
after a drunken walk home one night!
I'd forgotten how great this album is, thank you Zapsta. The only track I skip is the first, which I think is pretty weak compared to the rest.
WILL BURN YOU TONIIIIIIGHT! (with moments forever faded)
