I love it. The bit where it all starts going 'ba ba ba' mental at 2.16ish is fucking brrrrrrrrrilliant.
I did once get a round of sambucas in for everyone at the bar because I met a girl called Dawn Stairs.
In an office equivalent, this song just made me put the kettle on.
I used to have a regular customer in my old job called Ernest Crimes. I would have bought a round of sambucas if I had been in a bar at the time.
Had their 1997 record on tape I think?
Loved the opening track 'Restriction' best but can't find it on Youtube alas.
However this bad boy is!
God, that literally just took me back about half of my lifetime and reminded me of my terribly ill-conceived Manics matching bright blue painted bedroom walls. I did love 'Everything Must Go' a bit too much back then...
I think I had a Linoleum T-shirt.
Is there ANY piece of Britpop detritus that passed you two by?
You should see me walking out to bat in my Spare Snare cricket helmet and Dweeb thigh guard.
Dweeb and Spare Snare. Great memories!
A Matchbox Toys '18 Wheeler' 18 wheeler?
A jar of WI-endorsed, homemade Honeycrack honey?
I have the record which came in a........ lino sleeve. On A Tuesday and the non-LP single Smear are both classic. Twisted was also a great tune which was used in the closing credits to Linda LaPlante C4 student techno-murder mystery Killer Net.
at the end
Who were ace.
That is not very good...
a bit plodding. Much better than before but not that good.
she does. congrats all round
it's like she went into a studio, decided she wanted to sound 'edgy' then listened to 'Date with the Night' a few times. Still, it's better than Owl City...
I meant to add "with the receeders who aren't too shabby either"
"The Receeders then took to the stage at 9.30pm. There were three members in the band and Kate was the only female. Well this was a pretty impressive side project I really enjoyed the set. The music was slightly heavy and a bit punky. The set up consisted two people on electric guitars and one person on the drums. Kate had a guitar that had Ella + Maisy on the front. Well the set was 7 songs but only four songs were sung. The night started off with Sha La La. The song itself was pretty strong and some of the lyrics get embedded in your head especially the Sha La La’s. Kate sung the majority of this song. The First One and then Don’t Tell Me were the following two songs they were really good especially Don’t Tell Me. Now for that song I have still got the way Kate was singing the lines Don’t Tell Me in my head. The New One was the next song and they said they wrote this the other day. This song was another short track and the guy who was on the electric guitar sang most of this song with Kate joining in. It was a nice powerful song which got the claps at the end. The final three songs of the set were Sha La La, The New One and The First One."
EAT SHIT, LUKOWSKI.
It's just shockingly derivative, the spoken word element sounds so self-aware and contrived it's beyond cringeworthy, the yelping might as well just be sampled from a YYYs track and the end doesn't sound edgy, it just sounds like she's having a breakdown. I guess she can pretty much get away with anything and people will just think she's some sort of 'common' avant-garde genius.
It sounds like a 90s girl fronted indie group. Reminds me of Garbage more than Yeah Yeah Yeahs. I'm sure in interviews promoting her new record she'll be saying she was inspired by the likes of Suede, Blur, Elastica, Garbage or if she's trying to be wacky stuff like Salad, My Vitriol (ha) or the aforementioned Linoleum in a bid to gain indie points.
Saying that it's just one song, the rest of the album could well be her doing piano ditties and this is just out there to throw everyone off. We shall see.
I prefer this to what I've heard of the first record, but that's not to say I like it.
Everyone's bloody love over Girls Aloud. Silly British Pop..
Are you sure now?
features one sentence. I'm all for simplicity but that's fucking lazy. C'mon, this is really obviously terrible.
However, Sun Ra is genius and this is not.
but that song is 2 seconds and this is 3 minutes.
Plus, this song's a crock of shit.
and is one of the most amazing songs ever created
and really liked it
Bernards doing a good job
it's 'im from the Cribs on guitar having listened to this again. Doesn't sound like Bernard's style.
but i can't quite put my finger on why i do.
sounds like elastica to me.
i love the "do wah doo" video
I miss me some Kate Nash/Paul Epworth Kate Nash
