the first two, we actually paid for these to be recorded and stuff... let us know if it was worth it.
nice work, definitely worth the expense to record it properly I'd say. I can hear a lot of early Sonic Youth in the second song.
and he's well into discordant stuff, i think its coming across well!
i think the recording sounds really good
And I say that as a massive Husker Du fan. Great stuff man.
Yeah i think my vocals could be a bit better, they sound a bit flat at times i think, but i've not really been a singer for too long so i'm still learning. I'll be listening to Husker Du a bit more closely now. Well pleased with the comparison though :)
Yeah, we just like books and stuff, and i had recently finished ...Dorian Gray when we were thinking of a name, so i suggested it and that stuck.
People think we are a gay band sometimes, we got asked if we were supporting Limp Wrist the other day! But i think its probably overall neither a help nor hinderance. Thanks about me looking cool too, i'll have to mention that to my bandmates.
also, you know archie from never grow up?! gnarly! are there any plans to come to canterbury soon?
i dunno about canterbury! if he puts us on we will! but we wanna do a weeks worth of shows at some point so i'll try and pull a favour. hes a nice guy though, i got speaking to him through our 'zines.
Two very enthusiastic thumbs up to that. Like the vocals - you sound like you can't actually be bothered, but then someone has said this to your face, which has sparked off a tirade of pissed off abuse in the form of your slurred shout. Good stuff.
Like the arrogance of the second one. Favourite bit is the 'music is shit' line. :D
really chuffed you like the vocals
b) i'm not sure what that is
i really really care what you think, dont keep me waiting
i just think it'll be funny
i'm not sure if i want him to have anything to good to say about it given his aversion to this kind of music
but well done.
The new recordings sound good but you should have re-recorded 'The money...'
we just chose a brilliant song that not many people know to cover. which is both a good and a bad idea.
But you do it well...
Tom looks like ian mckay..is he the new guitarist? Maybe his guitar is more fugazi influenced than sonic youth :P
and yeah i think theres a definite influence both in his appearance and guitar :)
but aside from that pretty good.
will you ever run out of book puns?
i'm pretty sure theres thousands of books we can use
Your cut-offs are TINY! :D
and i thought they were far too long for me to wear on stage
the band name and the song titles are embarrassing. the songs don't do anything for me and yeah, as mentioned before, the vocals are way too loud for stuff like this. you would've sounded so much better recorded into a shitty mic on a shitty boombox in a cramped shed.
comes off like a school kid's guide to hardcore. seems like you're having fun though.
just wondering... we just do it as it saves us having to think of some shitty overwrought title for a song, but a few people have said this, just wondering why.
other than that... oh well.
which, because they're not very clever/funny, comes off as embarrassing. dunno, maybe it's just me, but i wouldn't have listened to you had i not known you.
and yeah, oh well. x
it really is because we can't be arsed to think of a title... most of the time i think any song titles i would come up with be equally so.
cheers anyway for being honest etc. appreciated.
i enjoyed the new recordingss :)
thats pretty good though yeah
