Do you remember CiV?
album was called Set Your Goals. Poppy NYHC.
Do you remember China Drum? My favourite band growing up.
that Kate Bush cover
Don't ever remember hearing them.
Never mind though - China Drum were brilliant!
Anyone remember the 60ft Dolls? Re-bought their first album recently - it's still as good as it was when I was 15.
who had a really good song called "Stay"? I loved that song.
Do you remember E-Male?
They had rollerskates. And just couldn't fail.
i think you will find.
Got 'so far so good so what' on CD single somewhere.
Do you remember Natural Life?
Kind of a poor mans Levellers. Yeah, you heard me right.
then I forgot my money and my greed ;D
that got cancelled because the pub decided to show the football instead
Women In Technology had maybe 3 good songs on it - rest was crap IMO.
I WISH I WAS A GIRL
But if I was a girl I couldn't drive no more
Cos I couldn't tell the difference between the clutch and the door
I'd get mood swings and I'd have to shave my pits
But I wouldn't really care cos I would have massive tits
"Here come my weather beaten train/ to Lovesville USA"
Cracking they were.
As were Symposium but everyone probably remembers them.
i saw them support terrorvision, they were good. Northern irish if i remember correctly. had a song called vegetable animal mineral.
They had a cover on their 'big' album but I can't remember what for the life of me.....and can't be bothered to google! any ideas!?
In fact I can only think of that and one other song of theirs. Pretty good though.
They introduced 'Rush Hour' by saying "So this to all of you, who when you go home tonight and tell your parents who you saw, tell them you saw JOYRIDER, a group of guys from Northern Ireland who did a cover of this!" BLAM. I went home and said exactly that. The response was "what's Rush Hour?".
think they were friends or relatives of Portishead - really good Manga album art and 30 degrees below is such an ace song - i have the single for that too.
I remember specifically being in a car with an old bandmate, whose day job was as a booker for a live agency, listening to their demo and looking at their promo photos
I wasn't too impressed
the album's now £1.45 on Amazon
Yeah remember them. And Joy Rider.
How about Linoleum? I had their album on cassette. Cost me a whopping £3 too...
or am I confused!?
They were alright though.
linoleum sleeve. GEDDIT? I like it though.
What about Earwig?
One guitar & vox, another scratching & mixing? Saw em at Barfly a coupla times and they were brilliant! Or am I getting confused?
Picked up their album for 10p a couple of years ago.
Bitterscene and Reborn are both forgotten classics!
They were essentially Comet Gain without the frontman, Comet Gain lineups having a habit of changing.
They had a string of about three or four amazing singles in the days of Mark and Lard's graveyard shift. Sore Loser was the most memorable I think.
For no apparent reason their name popped into my head the other day, I have no idea what they used to sound like.
Obsessed with Patti Smith & the NYC end of Punk, but little trace of it in their trebly 1:30 thrashing.
I'M NOOOOOOOOOOOOOTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT TTTRRRAAAAAAAADDDDDDDIIINNNNGGGGGGGGGGGG
Why did you let my kitten die?
wasn't there another all girl band around at the same time?
But not the Donnas
or maybe Kittie
I'm sure at least one of them was called Donna ;)
I'll stop replying to myself now!
blimey, I'd forgotten about them, despite having a little thing going on with one of them for a little while
with coldplay as the support act.
BUT Kolrassa Krokrithandi (their native Icelandic incarnation)? Pretty good!
now half of The Lovely Eggs?
Angelica were great, although it took time for me to realise they were very much only cutesy-pretence and had a steel core to them, though their only proper album, produced by Kat Bjelland, was rubbish.
Irish trio whose album was produced by Royal Trux, and as a consequence was never released.
Terrible name but half dececent band. The singer guested on a Belle and Sebastian single - Lazy Line Painter Jane
Wondered what she got up to the rest of the time...
There was a song of hers that was on a CD free with Uncut. Can't remember when, but I remember liking the song around 2004. Song was called 'Only Love' and sounded like Azure Ray (Who I also loved at the time)
jon spencer's sister muffin's band. had a couple of singles that sounded like elastica then jumped on the late 90s guitar-music-with-scratching bandwagon for their sole album.
Saw them support... someone? Maybe Idelwild, in Northampton? They were fucking ace, to be fair.
3 girl Digital Hardcore/ATR backed band?
I wonder whatever happened to the girls in it? One of them'll probably be at Wills and Kate's wedding or something.
'WHERE'S THE CUNT WHO KILLED MY BABY?' x10
supporting Limbomaniacs and Primus at the astoria. Great gig that was.
saw them a fair few times after getting into them after seeing them support Atom Seed. They also supported FNM on the Real Thing tour, and I think they were also support for the Primus gig at the Marquee
and had Morbid Angel one time (astoria; dismal australian Metallica copyists) and Prong the other (hammersmith; a brilliant combo). I also saw Primus at the Marquee and don't remember them supporting. Then again it was a so very long, long time ago.
Who were almost the house band at The Garage in 02/03, supporting *everyone* who played there. Pop punk shite who somehow opened for Snapcase in 2003. So, in a moment of vindictive brilliance, me and the missus entered the toilets armed with marker pens, scrawled all manner of "fuck off and stop playing here" shit on the walls, and presto, we never had to endure them again at the Garage ever again.
unless they stole it from somewhere else as well.
Empire of the Senseless - great album
Senseless things members went on to various things:
Drummer - Delakota
Guitarist - joined three colours red
Bassist - Vent 414 with miles hunt fmo wonderstuff, then solo album now playing wiht Muse i think
Singer - another band, but didn't really get anywhere, strange as he was the main guy in senseless things.
...but more from finding out about them in the last year or so than knowing about them at the time. I do remember senseless things but mostly for being the band with covers by the Tank Girl guy than what they sounded like.
yeah you remember them. they were great.
Can only remember the track "boy i used to be" which was okay.
apart from TBIUTB, Lonely, Dig A Hole and especially Pulling Myself Together are sublime
opening track of debut album kicked so much ass and is one of the best of its type
I must dig out my CD if I can find it.
The breakdown bit on Fever for the Flava is great.
First two albums were quite good; haven't listened to them for about five years though.
The next big thing for approximately 8 minutes about 10 years ago...
I've just started a thread about Terris and then saw this thread and thought "I bet they're mentioned in here".
Yup, turns out it was about 18 minutes before I made my thread.
There's something about Terris in the air tonight. I'm digging it.
earlier today i got a song from years ago in my head, couldn't work out what it was, and it turned out to be Fabricated Lunacy. Then I got home, listened to it a couple of times, then saw this thread!
they released a lovely mini-album Slowly and Gloriously
and then disappeared off the face of the planet
they were on nude records.
They were quite alright.
The Rock and 555 - great tunes.
What about The Warm Jets? Or Straw?
I had their second album 'Hotboxing', I seem to remember it was ok, don't have it anymore though.
Floored - Still one of my favourite 90s albums
Seem to remeber them being described as if oasis had listened to Black Sabbath instaead of the beatles.
