Any fans on here? Very good live I am told.

Is this Jez and? Super Hans?
Bought it on vinyl the other day.
Nicked a keyboard stand from us when we played a show with them last year. Contacted them multiple times to try and get it back, but they never replied.
but they're good live, SO ITS ALL FINE
More like The Fall I'd say
But really, who wants Mumford and Sons?
'Here’s what the Offline Club promoter said about the band:
They were late, unreliable, erratic, broke things, made a massive racket, half trashed their gear and then demanded early payment so they could go off and buy some drugs, immediately forgetting all about the equipment they’d left behind.
All the things a real rock and roll band are supposed to do really.
They’ll either be massive or in the gutter this time next year. Plus any band that leads a chant of ‘Yuppies Out!’ is alright in my book.'
"Not many people bought The Others' album, but those that did formed Fat White Family" - Brian Eno
micksqualor made a thread on here last year saying its a supergroup made up of the metros and the saudis (no, me neither)
weren't the metros fairly successful, but really bad?
best thing was after they had finished when we were on stange packing up our shit i caught this exchange between one of the guitar players and the basisst;
guitarist - "the song is in Gminor you cunt, why did you not play the minor?"
bassist - "I play bass dickhead, there is no minor chords!!!"
they were really messy technically but loads of fun to watch and though there were a bit raucous they were actually pretty polite and respectful towards us and our gear. I wish them well and i would recommend anyone go see them live, even if they're not a fan of the recorded stuff.
Bunch of thieving twats
that makes you feel sick. when they came to my old local bar venue they immediately demanded booze and lit up fags (indoors) as soon as they arrived. i don't know if it's a bit rock n roll or if they're just stupid children...towers of london or new york dolls?
DEATH TO MUMFORDS!
destroy the mumfords
but I could do without the hassle of working/gigging with them. I imagine it'd be a nightmare.
they were totally fucked & said to the crowd at one point 'it sounds better if youre on ketamine' they had a lovely keyboard stand too
Cuz there's like millions of 'em here.
Determined to try and portray them as some sort of spirit of rock & roll musical marmite when instead they're just try-hard wannabe dadrock.
Hi mankatib, AlbertAlbert, Spunkpillar & ruhrgebeat!
Before their show they had to borrow a snare drum because the drummer had forgotten to bring his. They offered one of the other bands a fiver "in case we break it". A little later they went round again because one of their guitarist had broken a string and didn't have any spares. However, when one of they other bands asked to borrow a guitar halfway through their set after technical failure, they kept schtum, obviously.
Post-gig (they were on 2nd on a 5 band bill) they kept charging through the crowd like they owned the place, culminating in the drummer crashing into, and almost destroying, the projection equipment set up for the last act. When asked to be a bit more careful his response was dismissive, rude and aggresive.
The drummer (him again) was last seen just before midnight sitting on the pavement, apprehended by two coppers and crying like a baby.
And their music is a pile of retro blues-rock wank. Avoid at all cost.
Two of them started fighting during the U.S. Girls set.
and I have to say I think they've got something. (And I'm not just talking about hepatitis C!!!!!!) There's undoubtedly a tryhard element but I think their guitar sound is genuinely nasty and there are some real ideas there. I dunno, maybe I'm just being indulgent towards the first band I've heard with an obvious Country Teasers influence.
You need to try and filter out a band's personal hijinx as much as possible and not let it prejudice you towards the music one way or the other. Making worthwhile music is never an excuse for being a shower of little cunts (which this lot clearly are). On the other hand, I'm sure some of your favourite bands have done worse than turning up without a snare drum and pathetically barging around.
Just heard the new single/video good stuff
is an absolute fucking belter. Very late tune of the year contender.
