Yeah you do.
That one album was awesome. You can't buy it anymore :(.
Loved that band. Saw them live countless times.
Both albums are great, and the ep.
Miss 'em. David Ford's solo stuff never really grabbed me.
Or just give me it?
I CAN'T BUY IT ANYWHERE FFS.
I did the exact same search a couple months ago and got nothing back.
This is the best day possibly ever.
It's This Is Where I Stand that I want.
And It's out of stock. :((((

worth the risk i reckon. it's such a good record.
Hundredweight, Bleach, Trying Not To Think. Brilliant. First band I ever saw live too, fact fans!
the album was the EP with better production.
Didn't like the last double album, it was wimpier.
Went to see them after second album, and they only played try not to think and junkies off of the first. I was very sad.
The album version of bleach was definitely better but loved the stylophone action on Better ways...
Did any one hear their cover of 'Hopelessly devoted to you' of grease fame? It's awesome, in a ludicrously over top kinda way.
In Pog form
I loved this band though. I saw them supporting King Adora in 2001 maybe and they were GREAT and then I saw them about a million times.
Also, this review is pretty classic for ANGRY FANS COMMENTING: http://drownedinsound.com/releases/3567/reviews/8905-
Saw them play with Seafood, Crackout and all the lost greats! Awesome live band, Dave Ford had such a powerful voice. They were ace up to the first album (which was not bad) the second album was pants and the solo stuff was not my cup of tea. I'd love to see them reform. 'Better Ways To Self Destruct' was superb (the song and the mini lp)
but their live shows, as you say, were always utterly brilliant
'Snow Patrol are an awful, pointless waste of space and Easyworld are fuck all as well. Why don't you waste your time arguing over good bands? Go check out Kasabian for example.'
Being a particular favourite.
Kasabian were only just about to release Reason Is Treason.
first time i saw them.
King Adora were properly shit weren't they?
Yours for £29.99 each, deal?
Anyone want to buy any Mansun EPs? Or the first King Adora single?
at the time it used to go for £50 on eBay.
last year I sold ALL my Rachel Stamp singles (six or seven CDs, 1 7") in a job lot auction on eBay for about £7
I have the SPANK single. What a funny band.
This thread means I'm going to listen to them on my way home, well done Xylo (you can borrow the CD as a reward).
