What's going on.
Bit early to call that a succes, no?
Seeing them on the stone roses reformation tour
Those tools with the Bee - Em - doubleyer will probably join them too
Like anyone gives a shit as long as Bez and Ryder are there.
Well, not sure i would call myself a hardcore fan, but i am certainly a big fan! Genuinely great band who came up with a unique sound that is their own. "Bummed" is still a fantastically strange album!
I suppose he is in a way, it just seems a bit weird that a bloke shaking the maracas and busting out a few weirdarse dance moves is what the fans want.
And had a really good time, which was the last thing I was expecting. Shaun and Bez had a really tight, spunky young band that gave the whole thing new energy. Was cool.
and made 2 great albums.
On the other, this reeks of cashmoney.
I mean, a few years back when bands got back together for a tour or record there was a shock of 'only in it for the money'.
I thought it had become so commonplace that the mutual understanding was: they need the money and will probably have great funs doing a tour, we will pay the money and (hopefully) have great funs watching them do it. Every-one's a winner!
I don't be-grudge 95% of bands a little extra cash knowing they didn't get their just deserts at the time of making the music and in reflection of the joy they've given people.
There is a great youtube clip of them doing "Performance" from the Bummed album live on Tony Wilson's The Other Side of Midnight TV show. It is fantastic! Shaun has big massive glasses on and the band are at the absolute peak of their powers.
here is that live clip i was talking about...
