Been listening to them a fair bit this week.
Any recommendations of any similar bands of a siliar standard of goodness?
Shocking stuff! ;)
Get 'q: are we not men a: we are devo!'.
should have quit when they were at their most popular, I think.
They'd have been treated very well by the future press, I reckon.
They were good.
You'd make a great band manager
it went off in 2004.
that's odd - i thought i'd sell them sell out their biggest shows in 2007. my bad.
When the fuck did their firework go off? 1994, 1995??
are of a similiar tone but about 400 times better. Silly people think they sound like The Fall, they dont but if you haven't already you should give them at the very least a cursory listen.
But pick wisely, as it's very hit and miss (ie the earliest properly recorded stuff is best) And yeah, most Jonathan Richman.
Helen Love? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WFcu7gSt640
The Indelicates? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5tYYuQ4bsAE
And definitely anything that involves Luke Haines (the Auteurs, Black Box Recorder)
in so many ways. moreso than i could point out without looking like a dick.
Try, Bromheads Jacket.
(Possibly Broomheads, i forget)
baader meinhof, the auteurs, black box recorder... nothing else.
