One of the best songs of the 90s.
Perfect start to The Three EPs.
Although that scene in High Fidelity with it in is the worst part of that film, especially the pronunciation of "Beta". I always liked Inner Meet Me a bit more off The Three EPs, and Los Amigos Del Beta Bandidos was my favourite EP of the three.
just walking along the street to this song, makes me feel cool, especially when the drums kick in.
of the past 30 years and sadly, one of the reasons The Beta Band never really got any bigger as it was too impossibly perfect to live up to.
Noel Gallagher completely ripped it off for Go Let It Out too. Which is shit.
The Three EPs always reminded me very strongly of Faust IV - they must have listened...
Why is there no editor ?
though I still think Hot Shots II and Heroes to Zeroes are pretty good albums
Assessment is a great song, and those albums were underated.
Off the 3 EPs I'm a big fan of She's the One. Awewsome stuff.
Although for me, the album, and their entire career was downhill from this high starting point.
a masterpiece. The S/T album is also overlooked for me. Has some really strong songs on it. Hot Shots II should have really marked a commercial high for the band, but it never quite seemed to materialise. Heroes to Zeroes was very disappointing i thought. Cluttered and not didn't quite have the same level of worthwhile experimentalism on it.
is better than the dis review suggests.
work has been the Lone Pigoen albums. Both of those are really very nice...but i do like King Creosote and so maybe that's why i like those albums so much.
such good albums.
