I love this band so underrated they blow The White Stripes and The Strokes away.
Anyone a fan.
average. I've seen them quite a few times over the years; they are a good live band.
they might actually be my favourite band at the moment. I'm a big fan of the Lust Lust Lust (the album) in particular. The new one doesn't have their best tunes but the production's really nice.
Sune Rose seems to have had a hand in the new Dum Dum Girls stuff - they share a manager I seem to remember.
I've said on here before how I think they're often seen in the same kind of way as Clinic (and maybe The Fall, too?).
They definitely have their own sound that you'll tend to take to or not. The original blueprint of both bands was head and shoulders above most of the sludge around them. It has stood the test of time pretty well. But they're seen as not really coming up with anything groundbreaking. That's a little unfair, imo. And almost every album since has added a new twist or layer to the sound, and been refinement on the previous one. Most non-fans would have to concede that their first and latest albums are easily distinguishable. As BMS1 said: great live. I suspect both bands have a solid core of loyal fans who have only grown to be bigger fans as time has gone by and the initial bubble of hype fans has fallen away.
I'm a big fan of Clinic too. I have no problem at all with the idea of bands that start with a great idea and then stick with it and refine it.
I also love how you can play somebody one of their songs and if they like it, they'll like them all but if they don't, then don't bother.
Been in my top three fave bands for mearly ten years now.
