They were good, weren't they?
they should really stop being hipster folk fags and get back to playing to no-one at Brooklyn Waterfront:
always sounded a lot more boring/normal sounding indie ish to me, couldn't get what all the fuss was about.
WHERE DO YOUR TROUBLES GET YOU DOWN, HOW DO YOU EVEN SLEEP AT NIGHT?!
Strangers in our House is great too though.
I could never really get into their final album (struggling to recall what it's called)
last album was called The In Hour. It had a couple of decent tracks but was ultimately a flawed, early incarnation of what would become Woods
I remember mentioning that on here once and someone replied incredulously 'But they tour here all the time!!!'
By 'all the time' they meant that they'd played the Hoxton Ferret & Spam Dagger twice in 18 months or something.
I got into them about the same time as their last tour happened, there is a video of when they played Cambridge which would have been the show I'd have gone to and its incredible:
(this is one of my favourite live videos on the internet)
only ever saw dodgy punk bands like Goober Patrol there though
but House of Cats above is fucking brilliant.
Can't wait to get stuck in to their discography. :)
but thats great to hear. They seem to be one of those bands that went dangerously unnoticed at the time but pretty much when anyone does discover them its a total revelation for them
Listened to it once, and I absolutely love it.
They remind me, in a way, or Elle Milano. Which is good, because Acres of Dead Space Cadets is one of my favourite albums.
just listened to IWBAN due to this thread, still great
well that and as a distribution forum for LOLcats and nob jokes.
here's some other highlights:
Bury A Flower: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rgBqTR0Fdpc
probably the band at their poppiest, the 7" version is really good as well and led to the kind of recording they used for the last album and Woods.
Paint You: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iq5humx6v9M
which follows Bury a Flower and is a total barn-stormer, and:
We Own, We Sell: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3dipzuEYKpQ
a highlight from the 3rd album
it must have medicinal qualities because today was rubbish, yet I arrived home happy.
AND DONT YOU LET US FIT IN, LET US FIT IN MY SOUL!
and I Was Born At Night is making studying okay. I owe you so much for this thread.
but whatever, share the love, right?
UNWOUND, Jawbreaker etc. etc.
but seriously check out those bands
also Repetition for Unwound followed by Leaves Turn Inside You
