comes out on non-specific date in 2014
"give us money to finish this"
but just call it that, innit
just do one of those pledgefund things
That trailer was bloody useless and almost bereft of sound - this has to be one of the most work-shy bands in existence! Someone please tell Som that he blew it and just go back to the day job already
christ it must suck to be you
I realise that a lot of my posts have come from this negative headspace, which can be traced to endlessly scanning online for a new my vitriol album...that never came...*sobs bitterly*
But clearly not. I doubt they've even written it tbh.
I just want grungy shoegazey pop songs goddamnit!
Really good ones, from what I remember. I'd say I'm feeling tempered optimism, with an overarching sense of "eh, something's always better than nothing".
Also it's only Som and Ravi left in the band with Ringo Starr's former burlesque dancer granddaughter on bass and another guy on guitar. Kind of like their obvious idols Smashing Pumpkins then, really, but on a smaller scale.
and moodswings i think was probably the best thing they did back then, was so psyched for a new album when that came out. testament to them that people care at all this many years later. don't expect it to have the same effect on me but there's no reason it wont be as good. that said, seth will be missed.
now THERE'S a first tier shoegaze act...
how can they afford to be working on a record for fourteen years? Surely they've all gone back to actual jobs or something by now? It's so bizarre.
third tier shoegaze with two ok singles, and that's about it
Has never listened to Finelines
Didn't grab me.
I'm not going to pre-order something over six months before it can possibly show up on my doorstep. Three months tops. As said in this thread before, no-one would begrudge them a Kickstarter style project.
They've got new tour dates towards the end of the year. Will expect a single or EP around then.
I *love* how this is still the official MyVitriol site.
Looks like it's been knocked together on FrontPage in 1997.
and riding the mbv bandwagon
coke t-shirt couldn't be more mid-90's if it tried
but saying myvitriol (of course).
They were £4 and you got a free poster with it.
magnificently awful merchandising
And it did.
Thank you all for emailing in. We have some news for you :)
We are recording our new album over summer and felt it would be in the spirit of rock ‘n’ roll to have all you lovely people involved from the start. This week the pre-orders go live for the NEW ALBUM via an exclusive page which will be the portal leading up to the release of the record early next year.
Those who pre-order will get access to exclusive content, limited & one-off experiences and we’ll be posting photos, videos, demos, blogs and anything else we can think of along the way.
MV will be releasing a track in October and to coincide have announced fan shows around the UK:
Oct 22 BRISTOL Fleece & Firkin
Oct 23 MANCHESTER Gorilla
Oct 24 GLASGOW King Tuts
Didnt pre-order though :|
was clearly written circa 2007
That's pretty small for them. Halloween after party if you're willing to drop another £15 on top of the £20 ticket.
If you get the lyrics to a song written down (£29), can you send them back if you don't think the handwriting is neat enough?
they're just running a bit behind schedule
FFS. Get 150% of Kickstarter, start cancelling dates...
but no one ever sees the person.
In all fairness, I really like Finelines so I like that they're doing this, it reminds me to listen to it.
Played loads of new stuff, seemed in the most part heavier. Totally front loaded the set with new stuff. Due on stage at 9.30, came on at 10, to a restless crowd, played til half 11 by which time 2 thirds of the crowd had left. Still using the finelines backdrop, still trying to shift their awful merch (including the myspace t shirt). Apparently recording the album next month
Not sure if I enjoyed it or not. It wasn't helped by the couple in front of me who seemed to be acting out an episode of Skins
Have they been gathering dust for the past however many years then?
Finelines is excellent, one of the few albums from my teeens I still rate really highly.
Odd to think theyd be about 5 or 6 albums in if they carried on at a 'normal' pace.
I am somewhat lacking enthusiasm for this gig, I'm not sure why as I like them live (I'm actually a bit poorly). Your review has done nothing to encourage me to go along.
They were very good. Charming, even. The new stuff is great and the old stuff has been given a bit of a shake up. On the strength of that I'd recommend it
Loved it. Good blend of new and old. I havethe setlist somewhere in my bag if anybody wants to see what kind of thign they're doing (although I believe the list was a bit different from Bristol.)
London city lights clip…
War of the Worlds
The Gentle art of choking
It’s so damn easy
Under the wheels
Windows & Walls
Kohlstream -> cemented shoes
Spirit Still Remains
Ode to the Red queen
Taprobane -> losing touch
The agonies & the ectstasies
Alpha waves -> Always : your way
Tongue tied –> C.O.R.
Good to know they're still putting on a decent performance, I am very intrigued in how the new stuff sounds as I loved Finelines!
As everyone is saying, let's just hope they actually bring out the bloody record now.
a number of people (myself included) have actually paid for it now. Before it was their prerogative.
Plus the new songs.
