Very good is the answer
Did you know that Cripsin Hunt wrote four of the tracks on the Newton Faulkner album?
Try the second album...is it better? Or is it just more differenter? I can never decide.
i would have also accepted:
and ebeneezer good
I was listening to this last night for the first time in ages. Love it.
Hate it when they are dumped into the same category as your Shed Sevens and Casts when people poo on britpop acts. Saw what I think was their last ever London show and it was obvious they didn't like each other.
2nd album was sooooo dark lyrically;
"Lying in the sun like a fat dog with you is worth cancer.
The few pleasures, how white my clean ass could be,
there is not yet a neat Media label to describe you and me and this age.
Well fuck them.
And on the streets there's an advert real people pickled to the bone by the vultures of culture,
golf, hold on to yourself,
so hang on,
Hang on to yourself,
Come on, come on, come on.
Make it feel like stealers tongue, a real flesh eater."
People may be able to confirm or deny 2 stories I'd been told about the band.
1, Crispin Hunt lived with a dominatrix for a while after the band split as her slave of sorts.
2, Richard Hawley, who was in the band, once glassed Crispin.
Anyone know if either of these are true?
my favourite 'britpop' band story is that Jamie from Marion was caught stealing garden gnomes, and selling them for junk money.
I bought it for three pounds in a virgin megastore sale and listened to it on my walk to and from school every day in year 11.
don't regret taking back 'Pablo Honey' and exchanging it for this.
luxuriating in Long-Pigs.
She said and Lost Myself are excellent, excellent songs.
Genuinely a brilliant album, Crispin Hunt what a voice! I remember hearing about a band member glassing him, think that is probably true. Not sure about the dominatrix stuff though
the drummer that glassed either Hawley or Hunt, can't remember which.
And yes, an absolutely brilliant album and in my top 5 of all time. More recognition for this band!!!!!
good to see them still appreciated. wish i'd seen them!
Loved She Said so much back in '95 - that and Jesus Christ. I didn't actually buy the album though...couldn't afford to buy everything back in those days and I think I opted for Fuzzy Logic instead.
