These guys are superb live. One of the best live shows ive seen.
isn't it nice when friends support your band?
Sigh, if this keeps up I am going to have to nickname the band ASWAD as their acronym is probably something really unaffecting and emo anyway. Also, where's my incentive? "They're awesome!" because...? what do they sound like? Myspazz page? In the words of Dragon's Den you've thoroughly wasted my time with an inferior JAg and I'm out.
They're touring with Maybeshewill right now, and getting a lot of good reviews on that and their album.
Maybe you're just a bit full of hate/ignorance, but at least you bumped the thread for the day people.
Great band, lovely lads. So quick are we to jump on the JAG train.
i would of thought that you would have been capable to myspace them yourself but obviously you aren't so here you go my dear www.myspace.com/andsoiwatchyoufromafar
and im not a friend of theirs, im just a fan of their music and live shows.
yeah they are fucking great :D
Really love the debut, some of the tracks are so crushingly heavy. 'Set Guitars To Kill' is one of my favourite tracks of the year.
and nice guys too. it was a real pleasure to support them and maybeshewill, who are equally as nice. but then i already knew the 'shewills so it kinda doesn't count.
also, them album is 8 quid for an hours worth of music!
one of the best live bands around at the moment without a doubt and the soundest bunch of lads around the debut album is a high contender for album of 09, they are touring with clutch and this will destroy you later in the year as well as loads of the festivals! check em...www.myspace.com/andsoiwatchyoufromafar
saw them on saturday with maybeshewill, neither band are as heavy as id really like, but both great.
as for this being a jag? meh. if it is, its a jag for an awesome band, rather than it being for some shite indie twoddle such as jofo or dnana or other music made for girls ;) <--- SAFETY WINK!
Very good driving music I find. Clench fists... is my favourite track at the moment.
That track is proper evil sounding, when it starts that lurching, crunching riff. <3
so much better than on record!
I had no idea what the acronym was, makes sense now, I just kept staring at it thinking And She Is Whale Yiffing For Arsenal? All Snakes Ingest Whole Yams From Argentina? Antidote Saves Idiot With Yoghurt Falling Away? what the fuck is this band...?
They're alright I suppose... :p
this could quite easily be another JAG given the way it's set out. It's just that this band sound so fucking insanely awesome that the thread's getting defended. Which begs the question whether JAGing is ok if the band in question are critically lauded and reasonably well known in certain circles? Smells a bit fishy.
we know who they are. They tour the circuit and play with bands that regularly appear on here. Street team style JAGin is still annoying. Sometimes.
would it also annoy you? i dunno, a crude marketing swoop is still a cynical irritation whether i like the band or not.
i just posted this as i really do enjoy this band and thought other people would aswell.
I'm sure I'll live.
I'm refusing to listen to them because people only used the acronym in this thread. That, and I can't be arsed. Do they sound anything like Whiskey In The Jar by Thin Lizzy?
and they don't sound like Whiskey In The Jar by Thin Lizzy.
When someone refers to a band using an acronym and expects everyone to know what they're talking about, I generally think: "This band can't be THAT good, otherwise the poster would have bothered to type the full name. If they're not worth that effort, they're not worth my time." Call me reactionary.
The worst offender on here was the lazy cunt who started a thread about the new BN album. Because typing the eight characters and one space in Brand New was JUST TOO MUCH.
PROBABLY going to be a new EP before the end of the year.
Im sure it'll be as superb as the first one.
i would honestly say you should see them live to experiance how blimin good they are.
shes dragged me to their york shows, they are good live
How come the album didnt get reviewed on DiS
I'm looking at you, DiS
