Any fans on here? I'm off to see them on sunday night
they've sneakily become one of my favourite bands. I love how funny they are, both in their lyrics and on stage. I've seen them a few times and they've generally been brilliant. The only exception was at last year's Wales Goes Pop, where they gave the impression of all having fallen out on the journey there! Hope they've made up again now.
I love that sort of lo-fi punk indiepop stuff, This Many Boyfriends and The Cribs are other great ones like them too. (I always thought The Cribs were a rubbish landfill indie band and only recently listened to them and realised they were amazing).
I always kinda like the cribs, then i went along to see them with a couple of friends last year and it was one of the most fun gigs i've ever been to! :)
and they put on a poor, poor show (supporting Superchunk a couple of years ago).
Hope they're better now!
one they were fantastic
one they were fine
one they were ferry bad
but this thread has made me realise it's about 6 years old.
'In Loving Memory of...' and 'In The Court of...' are properly good, regularly find myself revisiting both. None of the material since floats my boat at all, especially the new record.
always been slightly let down by everything after
+ a bajillion indie points
I like the first album but it sounds so flat compared to that first EP.
replaced with better songcraft and stuff sure, and things like Tanks and Diana's Hair from the album are still great, but they were best at their roughest
They remind me (very vaguely) of the likes of Supergrass and Ash - starting off scratchy and energetic but struggling to transition into 'maturity'.
