Not been very good has it? Only Nothing Lasts Forever to add to the list of classics
It's been horrible! *sniff* There've been a few decent songs, but mediocre doesn't cut-it. I dunno what happened....
How come nothing as off-kilter as Broke My Neck...how come nothing as furious as Heaven Up Here...nothing as unsettling as Porcupine...
I'll tell you: it's because Mac is writing songs like Nothing Lasts Forever over and over again. Meh. That new single is so fucking awful I'm thinking of changing my username!
You're joking but that's the last beautiful moment Will and Mac have had. I dig that record.
Saw them supporting (I think) Boo Radleys in 1995 and they were certainly a lot ballsier than the latterday Bunnymen stuff.
Admittedly because they had the sense not to play much post-97 stuff.
I really like Rust incidentally. I don't expect anyone to agree with me on that. Including Ian McCullough probably.
just ain't what it used to be. And what it used to be was a thing of wonder.
surprise no one didn't mention this sooner. What the hell happened to his voice, not all singers improve with age but Ian seems a shadow of his former self, in fact he's like a different person.
Cos when he sings the oldies live, he still sounds pretty great.
because he sounds like a firm candidate to appear in an anti-tabaco add campaign
don't sweat it, they're still the best.
I mean I honestly have no idea about their albums or overall work or anything, but In the Margins was released after '97 and that song's lovely.
