is it always this ukelele shit?
My second least favourite instrument. After the accordion. There's also some of that thrown in there too.
and he has the worst voice ever.
do you love them despite it? Or is it an acquired taste?
It's hardly recognisable compared with their debut these days.
cos I loved it at the time, I tried listening to No Blues the other day and I couldn't get past his inability to sing.
Maybe it *is* an acquired taste then. I think he's improved massively as a vocalist and even though I still love their early stuff I find it quite different to stuff post Romance is Boring and rarely listen to it as a result.
went to see him live at the Brixton Academy, was one of the most boring, least atmospheric gigs I've ever been to.
Saw him at Glastonbury in 2007 and he was really great, then again at End of the Road a couple of years ago. Crushingly tedious.
Not a fan of the voice.
sometimes it's trumpet shit, or accordion shit.
