has everyone given sk a proper listen?
old that probably saw them live 10 times over the years. Live: hit and miss. Also, albums after Hot Rock are generally rubbish. HOWEVER, when on form they're brilliant.
that's why they've had a string of #1 hit singles and albums
i've always assumed they were slightly shouty 'slacker' indie rock (which isn't my sort of thing) but i've probably misjudged them terribly. What song will convince me to like them?
it's totally not
they're slightly shouty at some points but it's mostly just really good guitar music and really great vocals. I'd probably listen to the hot rock first.
thought the rest was a bit meh.
Obviously they weren't a patch on The Organ.
all their albums are good.
except all hands on the bad one - don't really like that one
I saw them at the Cardiff Barfly once by accident. Steven Smith is still a tune.
you just called 'All Hands On The Bad One' and 'One Beat' rubbish.
all-girl post-hardcore (not actual post-hardcore, but with a similar bone structure, as in they sound like indie rock punk rock made after hardcore) with killer melodies and hollered and/or melodious vocals.
just so great.
it's just as good as the others.
they are the absolute best
I much prefer Wild Flag
One Beat lots and lots and lots. It's the only one i have.
and get spotify or something.
on Spotify. I'm just lazy.
