Did they split up? Just realising how good they are even though I never liked them at the time...
No one knows. The did some touring in a couple of years back and from a few reviews I read, the music was well good. The sound wasn't as chirpy or upbeat but the tunes were there. I think it was expected in 07. No sign yet.
Cryptic. I'd say they're back, but maybe a few members dropped or something.
It'll be interesting to hear what happened and what the tunes are like. Not that I loved them at the start, but I did still think they were alright.
Was it to do with the record label or something? I don't really know anything about them. Play the Hits just popped into my head a few weeks ago and I remembered what a great song it is. Listening to the album now on Spotify and its great. Why didn't I get into them at the time? :(
weren't they on a major? it says independent now on their myspace. were they dropped?
Could well have been dropped. :(
And I think they played something like 3 gigs in Dublin before they were spotted and signed. They were an over-night success.
But it was mainly toilets they played in.
They did a gig or two in Ireland in December of 06, I'm sure. They were touted as comeback gigs really. Since then, no mention has been made of them. They were returning to the studio after these gigs to complete the album. I can remember reading the gig review back when I still read the NME and they had an Irish section. It was in that. The reviews were positive.
Obviously, between returning to the studio at the beginning of 07 to complete the album and now, 2 years later, something dramatic has happened. But there's been little or no news or announcements in media circles in Ireland. Everyone's forgotten about them or presumed they've split.
This myspace announcement is good news though. They're not, they've just been delayed by forces of musical nature.
I hope they release new stuff soon though I've only just heard the old stuff. Lol...
I'm probably the only person in the world to have had a Hal song as their wedding first dance.
had some really strong songs and the album was pretty decent.
