'Honey's Dead' is a better record!
It just it!
It's got better songs on it!
It is an uncomfortable truth.
I am the Al Gore of the distorted indie rock community.
from BRMC to Raveonettes to - yeah - APTBS.
aptbs live and in smaller venues? and they are a very good live band, maybe not at jamc standards but still very good.
You Trip Me Up and Never Understand aside, I find it a bit underwhelming. They never topped Upside Down though, imo.
A) APTBS is Psychocandy AFTER Automatic (with a bit of the Cure's Pronography thrown in for good measure), and so quite a different thing from Psychocandy.
B) Rehashes/Rip-offs are only bad/pointless when they are ripping-off/rehashing bad "originals"; I'll take another 50 Psychocandy rehashes/rip-offs, thank you very much.
C) You could just as easily say there's no real need for Psychocandy while APTBS (Crystal Stilts, hundreds of other bands, all of them fucking acesome) still exist.
