anyone else heard this yet?
i'm only 4 songs in but thus far its been fanfuckingtastic! :)
I hate it when people feel the urge to offer their opinion on a record so quickly.
Soak it up.
The artist deserves that before you offer an opinion, be it positive or negative.
Also, it's not released in the UK yet.
is it out?
in the UK
i'll bear that in mind next time
...my copy when I was in Ireland last week.
I'm a fan of the band anyway, but this album is great. Its a pure dance around the room like an eejit album. I can understand it not being everyone's cup of tea, but it's such an easy album to listen to I think, and I can imagine many people liking them at the same time.
I think people in the UK can order the album online via towerrecords.ie.
The idea that you cannot comment on something until you have played it three thousand times is bollocks of the first water. You may hear things after a few plays that didn't strike you the first time, but that in no way invalidates an initial gut reaction.
If you listen to anything long enough you can persuade yourself that you like it.
listen to the entire thing before beginning discussion on it though.
im going to see them tomorrow night,they'll probably be playing that,although i have yet to hear it
absolutely slammed by john meagher in the irish times. one out of five
each to their own i guess
for me, FLApes are a fun band with massive appeal - i think they'll do very well for themselves. not the best new irish band but one that's very likely to get a lot of attention; mainly due to Maykay who is an amazing frontwoman.
seen them live a few times and they're always brilliant - fair play to them for being a brazen, sloppy, noisy mess who don't play guitars in this age of indie muck...
A mate recommened them to me but I've been put off checking them out by the fact they're supporting The Tings Tings on their tour at the moment.
i hate when bands do that, they've fucking destroyed them
on myspace not just demo's?
they had a video made for the original 'lend me your face' and i remember the original 'jake summers' turned up on a compilation
i reckon the production on the album fits really well
i can genuinely imagine them being a mainstream success whether or not thats their intention i dunno
I've always believed that a debut album should be a true representation of where the band is to date. To leave off the songs that had gotten us to the stage of making the album seemed ludicrous. Add that to the fact that when we had initially recorded the EPs they were recorded as demos. Both How Am I Supposed to Kill You... and David Carradine... were also Irish-only releases. We feel the rest of the world should probably get to hear those songs too.
