Any idea what they're up to? Transition just popped up, what a TUNE. Would love to see them live again...
Not heard anything for a while though. Quite liked Open Hearts.
There was meant to be some new stuff coming out at the start of the year, but that obviously hasn't materialised yet.
The two albums were good, but not as great as i had hoped they would be.
Open Hearts had some excellent tunes, but the mini-album that complies the two early eps (Transition and A Quiet Life) is the one that i keep returning to. Although i think their best song was Idiot Check from the limited release(?) single.
They always were brilliant live though. Can still vividly remember them blasting their way through a frenzied version of Idiot Check during an encore at King Tuts a few years ago. That was a great night.
They played a few new songs last time I saw them in Manchester last year and they sounded great. Quite proggy compared to the usual dance element to the sound. Really looking forward to it.
they were brilliant at great escape last year
My last fm user name is "latenightbus" as well. I love the Longcut.
Never quite done it over a full album for me. Excellent live though, I much prefered it when Stuart was bashing the shit out of his drum kit, rather than on the microphone.
Got used to his voice now. Wonderful live band. last saw them in Stanford at Mama Liz's Voodoo Lounge in Feb 2012
But I think they had a full-time drummer last time I saw them, lost a lot of the spectacle and tension somehow.
We want to try and book them for Water Rats in London
Soundtracked some good times for me in the mid 00s. Transition, A Quiet Life, A Tried & Tested Method. Saw them a few times when I lived in Manchester proper decent live too
