Is there? Eh? Eh?
Hopefully the full album will make its way onto there soon. I believe my copy's waiting at home for me.
and the collective shrug and dismissal that's greeted their new album is quite shocking.
Fudge the h8rz.
shame it seemed to get a little ignored..
Defo looking forward to hearing the new one, I like the cover art for starters.
apart from in NME. Haven't heard it yet, but NME hated the last album too and that's still a favourite of mine.
If there's a "shrug" surrounding it, it's that nobody buys records now. A band that once sold a million copies of an album is more likely to sell 100000 now. Take that theory of percentages to a band that sells lower numbers to start with and it's a depressing state of affairs for lots of acts, not just the one.
that they'd get that much less press. In Young Knives' case it's the passe nature of the post-punk revival plus the assumption that they were naturally at their best in 2006.
I thought album 2 was a big improvement on album 1. But this being one of my favourite types of music I am likely to be very biased. I do wish people could just subscribe to the view that something is good or isn't, rather than it's in or passé. Ho hum. (This being aimed at the press rather than the poster above)
with our download culture with very little respect to the damage were doing to future acts. I know this isnt's a downloading debate but I'm amazed at how many people I know, and on this site, who actually understand this and continue to do it.
