not cool :(
but This Is My Ship is one of the best British guitar albums of the past 5 years. Great live band, too. Will be missed.
i'd say that was their weakness. wrote some nice tunes and couldn't play/sing them very well live.
last ep was shit, i expected it be a slow burner/grower, but it is just boring. the album has some great songs on it though.
bar the technical difficulties at the Luminaire gig. Certainly wouldn't have said it was their weakness at all.
The last EP was pretty rubbish but the album was good. Maybe they'd reached their limit as a band?
I really like them. I saw them a load of times when I lived in Middlesbrough and they were always good value. I still think the mini-album was pretty decent.
They also played one of my favourite ever gigs, the DiS party with Russian Circles a few years back.
I imagine doing the band thing part-time in university holidays must have got a bit wearing after a while. This Is My Ship is really good though and the mini-album had a couple of great songs on it at least.
I was a late-comer to them with This Is My Ship - I know they said the EP was a bit of an experiment, it largely didn't work out - but I was really eager to hear how they'd properly follow up the album.
Lovely little band.
