the only time i saw them was on some horrific nme related student union tour. lineup:
on a regular departure tour
And as for that gig above, Clor are ace, Viva Voce are ace and at the time I was a huge Departure fan. I would have left before Kooks and called it a very good night.
tune indeed. I was getting all nostalgic over it the other day.
What a horrible tour lineup. uck.
but the rest was baaad. only £3 in though.
that was very expensive and full of pretentious idiots. They were really good though
think I saw em support Secret Machines; couldn't believe they were the support band they were so, so spot on. Barry's guitar work was amazing and I loved their cheeky lifts of Prince. Much missed and such a shame they didn't develop into a great ickle band.
Brilliant song, just brilliant.
was pretty good. think it was hearing outlines that made me buy it.
I've just been inspired to listen to it again. Outlines, Magic Touch, Good Stuff all tunes
like really wild, i had no idea who they were and they were just so spot on and on it the night i first saw them. after that the album was kind of weak because it didn't compare to the goodness of them on that night, they seemed really heavy in places, really bizarre harmonys, super danceable and straight up weird. all the riffs seemed toned down on the album. but yeah, shame they split up. any of them doing anything else? i know one of them is barringtone isn't he?
'The band split up in May 2006, their manager stating that the future paths of Dobbin and Smith were unclear, though would likely involve musical pursuits. Luke Smith has since produced Shitdisco's album, Kingdom of Fear (released April 2007) and some remixes for the band, and is rumoured to be working with electro indie band To My Boy. Smith has produced an EP with frYars and is currently producing new material with him. Barry Dobbin has since started a solo project called Barringtone.'
It's a good track I haven't heard much more of them to be honest then they disapeared.
I heard somewhere that they use to be Roots Manuva's backing band, but I might be getting it all kinds of wrong.
the bassist definitely. dunno about the rest.
I vaugly recalect some sort of connection
i managed to see Clor twice - once at Reading and once at ULU (during my freshers week...) which we got into for free just because we were already in the pub! ha!
Great band - they deserved more. Guitarist was quite arrogant and the keyboardist wore shite blazers, tho'..
RIP In Peace.
was pretty good, but they were a whole bunch better live. I'm not being cool, I didn't even mean to see them, they were just there, on the stage, and I was accidentally watching and liking it.
