Well, one. I'm still excited though.
Are they sure it's not the play because I've been caught out by that before
dunno, sucked at the time but in retrospect it was prolly the right time for them to quit. i guess it's 'our side projects didn't work out' time.
and even if any new stuff they may make isn't as good, this will still be a good thing
that's way longer ago than I thought
might be fun
they were never not great on record or live. especially live.

anyone who thinks this is bad news is a fool.
If there's one band who should grow old together, still recording, it's the Blood Brothers. Would love to have seen them develop into an older, weirder, act.
Hated that people thought their later stuff wasn't hard and fast enough. Their last album ended with Giant Swan, ffs. A lyrical, musical, aggressive triumph.
it's more that it became apparent that there were johnny songs and then the-rest-of-them songs. young machetes just didn't seem like a band effort. i'd love to think they've put their differences behind them but i'm just far too cynical for that.
is it lost a bit of the venom that punctuated their last albums, and as mentioned, its a Johnny affair. Jordan gets Johnny Ripper but he seems like a backing vocalist mostly.
plus it has Street Holes and 1 2 3 4 guitars which are a bit terrible.
and im ridiculously exc ited for this.
i hope johnny has reigned in his arty pop side and they realise theyr best playing off each other. jordan was well side lined in young machetes and hes the better vocalist
also crimes isnt the best its obvs burn piano island burn
how they seem to be embracing their older stuff, theres a Kiss of the Octopus lyric on there
at people this weekend.
how good is this
