A lot of bands splitting in the last couple of weeks, aren't there?
.....................and never will.
on 20th June.
i lost interest when they started veering into ripping off foals territories
Haha that's so funny. Do you realise the irony in what you just said? The bands used to be friends, but kind of fell out when Foals started, errrrr, changing their sound into a Tired-Irie esque direction - more than borrowing from their sound. But you know, genius steals...
They never bettered it, but that's not to say that they were ace at times.
apollo v sputnik was frankly awesome.
Wasn't a big fan of their early stuff, but I really liked the split with Cats x3 and the "Foals rip-off" stuff
At a guess somewhere around 30 times although it could be even more. That was due to me going to loads of gigs when at uni in Leicester and them warming up for/supporting everything as well as being involved with putting on some really good shows themselves (under the Wolf Party banner if I remember rightly). Twas interesting to watch the progress from their first few gigs where everything is a bit shambolic, the progress into becoming a tight and decent post hardcore band and after I left uni the lurch into the Foals rip off stuff!
..bit too trend concious for their own good.Saw tham at a awesome garden party last year.
or something hanging around somewhere, and it was REALLY good. Shame.
think i only saw them after their change of direction, but we kept singing that hook around our house for a while after watching them, usually around dinner time: "I can't say no / I can't say no / To meaty pasta / To hot lasagne"
their impact on my life will not be forgotten.
there always was a close link between both bands. foals were sat in tired iries living room when they found out they'd got a record deal.
in some ways its very sad, the first tired irie line up was frankly stunning live, probably the most promising band yet to arise from leicester. i wasnt mad keen on them towards the end, but sumerian was pretty stunning.
