NO, just NO
pissing on a memory of former greatness from a vertiginous height
I don't like it
i missed 2 reruns of family fortunes to listen to this shit the other night. NOT impressed. i reckon the real RA was killed in 1996 and replaced with this idiot.
McCabe & Si Jones now - The Black Ships...
He really does have one of the best singing voices I've ever heard. Wasted on the dross he's applied it to the past decade
I was shuffling off to see The National when The Verve kicked off on the Pyramid stage, so I thought I'd stick around and watch the first couple of minutes. An hour later I was still there, and more than anything I remember thinking how great his vocals were. Most people have some deterioration between recordng and the stage but if anything his sounded BETTER. One of the most unexpectedly great performances I've seen...
Wasn't it? Unless this is a fun little gag...
He was good once eh. Storm In Heaven and Northern Soul are mighty fine albums. What was their comeback single called? Truly awful song.
Yes - widely regarded by critics and music lovers alike as a truly awful song.
and 'Sit and Wonder' is immense but then the album tails off rather spectacularly into Ashcroft's usual bloated ballads and some unfinished jams that are okay I guess but well, it's not enough, is it? Still, high hopes for The Black Ships when the album surfaces (meant to be this year I think.)
Another 'Black' band to sit in the iTunes list along with Black Angels, Black Mountain, Black Sabbath, Black Acid, Black Lips, BRMC, Black Strobe. So they'll be doing the 'Black' thing with some added Wooden Shjips vibes but without the silent 'j'. Possibly.
No Black Velvets in your i-tunes list? I jest...
