HOLY FUCKING SHIT BATMAN
and now The Young Knives?!??!??!?!?1?1?
they picked the wrong day for this...
Top popsmiths and funny as fuck.
but I wasn't expecting to be as impressed by that as I am.
Especially the second one, Superabundance, which I always had much fondness for. They dropped the ball magnificently with the third album though. It sounded like a band stripped of its identity and replaced by something wholly generic. I'd like to see this new one signal a return to form for them.
then one day I put it on and really enjoyed it. I kind of grew a bit. Superabundance is their best album.
I much preferred them as purveyors of humorous, spiky little punk vignettes as on their first album. Love Terra Firma but tracks like Up All Night seemed to be trying to fit into the Arctic Monkeys/Rakes mould of laddish songs about going out on the lash. Never heard the third album mind.
Still, they're immensely likeable, good fun live and I hope they do well with this.
was their retort to all that, rather than their wish to join in, but I could be very wrong.
The chances of me being wrong about any given thing is overwhelming.
are really really good/interesting. Looking forward to this. Always had a soft spot for them.
They look really weird when they're not in tweed though.
Hated that "hot summer" tune though.
They've had 2 mediocre albums - the first eps and album were excellent. They must have work as good as that somewhere left int them somewhere!
The Sun will report a Smiths reunion tomorrow, as usual, it'll be complete bullshit. They'll definitely mention that they're 100% confirmed to headline Glastonbury next year.
For some reason I've always got a shit load of time for the Young Knives and I'm really looking forward to hearing how this turn out when they've been left to their own devices without anyone else to water things down.
And the current of the river video is still great: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0rCCJvT6SKM
and I was wondering what happened to them.
Can't believe he's still calling himself 'House of Lords'
