I thought they had some decent pop songs but wasn't really surprised they never broke into the big time...
everyone'll write us off as washed-up failures then we're gonna come back with a commercial and critical smash. Probably.
would do something like that...
I've made some edits to it and corrected inaccurate information but according to the history its the work of 6 or 7 people. I actually don't know who five or six of those are.
We meet the criteria for "relevance" now but for a year or so we blatantly didn't but nobody deleted it. People even came onto our page to delete links to other bands they were deleting and kept ours in place. It was quite strange.
that was a fun band...
"Josh became a recognisable face in the UK music scene. The band grew in stature, selling out venues all over the UK including Shepherds Bush Empire in London. They were cover stars of national music magazines including Melody Maker, and due to an awesome live reputation made fans ranging from Paul Cook of The Sex Pistols to John Entwistle of The Who, were invited by Paul Weller (The Jam) to play Earls Court and by Robbie Williams to support him on 30 arena dates. They played all the major festivals, sharing the stage with The Flaming Lips in Glastonbury... While recording the follow up album, after the big US deal, the band span off into personal breakdown. Given a "write more 'pop' or get 'dropped' " ultimatum by the UK label, Josh decided they had already strayed too much into 'pop' territory and quit the band. He watched as poppier, manufactured copies of his band sprung up such as Busted and McFly and dominated the music charts for the next couple of years, while he couldn't put his finger on a direction to pursue next. Depression descended and Josh became reclusive, not leaving the house for days at a time."
were really heavy...
They really did blaze the trail which Busted and McFly followed.
It wasn't on purpose. I'd come out of the toilet in a gig venue and he was knelt on the floor just outside the toilet door talking to someone at that table. I just ploughed straight into him.
They were fucking great.
theres some killer tracks on the album! Especially 'The Cable and the Cars'. Brilliant!!
they were amazing live.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bennet_(band) were they any good?
The one with 'Mum's Gone To Iceland' on it, they were a pretty forgettable comedy indie band I thought.
and my friend bought everything they released because he was convinced that they were going to be massive.
and not because we were like "lol name some bands"
just cos theyre not forgotten
Good news, Medium 21 were ace!
