sounding GOOD to me
Reminds me of that feeling when I heard that session of 'Arming Eritrea' at SXSW a few years back.
This was one of the really good new ones live too.
getting me very excited for the record. Shame it's not such good quality audio, but the track still shines through
I wasn't as keen on Polymers. This is better. Excited.
so they can collaborate with The Horrors and make a song called Sheena is a parasite and a t-shirt salesman
Mclusky had stayed together. I really like FOTL, but it isn't quite the same.
but I generally far prefer FOTL. Songwriting wise by miles. There was a rawer and more spontaneous sound to mclusky recordings from 'Do Dallas' onwards and their youthful enthusiasm / slightly competitive frontmen meant their live shows could often be very fun, but I'd rather listen to either FOTL record than a mclusky one.
Having said that, the mclusky Garage show is still up there as one of the best things I've ever witnessed.
In short: Both are awesome and I eagerly await a new record.
Single 12th March (I think).
Mclusky are one of my favourite bands but with FOTL being almost as awesome I've never really wished they didn't split up.
I fucking love this. Can't wait for the album. I loved Mclusky too, especially live - and would probably say their brighton freebutt show with Jarcrew back in the early 00's was one of my favourites ever - but on record definitely prefer FOTL.
Fun video too.
I wasn't hugely keen on E.P, although it did have it's moments, but this has completely wet my whistle for the album. I've been in a complete musical depression this winter, nothing new has really grabbed me, so this is needed.
It featured 3 songs that also didn't make the cut. They were loads more 'scuzzy'...
The second guitarist is the one that Falco described as a "fucking maniac" in one of their blogs I seem to remember. Looks about right! :D
called Strange News From Another Star. I reckon they might be up your street, Shucks.
and by the end of their set Falco had passed me on the way to the bar with a look that suggested he'd seen too much. I could understand.
