Best band I ever heard. Incredible.
Two bass players = result.
I even liked their second and third albums...and still listen to them. Granted Jon Penney's voice was a little irritating and they had lost the plot by the point they released brainbloodvolume, but I was just getting into Indie when God Fodder first came out and I played it to death on my walkman while my fringe grew longer and longer in admiration. The funny thing is that they are still gigging...
Can't ^This this enough
Dan Dan The Fast Drumming Man, Alex Plays One Bass, Mat The Other,Rat Does The Guitar and Jonn Sings.
one bass for actual bass type basslines
the other for melody lines higher up the neck
then Rat often is just layering texture type guitar over the top.
and thought to myself "I bet there's noone else listening to Ned's anywhere near me right now"
Little did I know that other people actually admit to liking them. Fucking great!
...Neds were fantastic - there was NEVER a live band like them! They were furious! Bit gutted that they are playing all of God Fodder in Birmingham and I can't go! Arse!
I especially love that on God Fodder they use the same chord progression on at least five tracks.
finally got to see them in Sheffield about 5 years ago, up there as one of the best gigs ever!
and it's still brilliant! Saw them at Brixton Academy on my 21st birthday (a long time ago) brilliant. And when they played before Sisters of Mercy at Reading they were great too.
Let's also not forget the best rock band t-shirts ever, fact.
All neds shirts just looked the same, PWEI had a GIANT range of characters and colours and were far less fond of the sleeve print.
A bit like my brilliant old Utah Saints long sleeve that had, er, their logo down both sleeves.
one of my all time favourite bands.
have seen them twice in the last couple of years on their christmas, all five members back together gigs
the one at the astoria in 2008 was amazing. never have i felt the floor bounce that much.
i can listen to time and time and time again without boredom. i could listen to are you normal all day with those basslines. i agree its better and smoother than god fodder.
