i hope they record their heavier stuff from the Secret Chiefs tour and that. maybe i should sign em....
there was an awkward transitional period (they wrote a straight pop song called Yves-Saint Laurent, didn't really work, and it was on an album with stuff like this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UieoXKU_Rx0 which I kinda dig but yknow) but if this is them now then cool, let's see if they can integrate the weirdness better
some of the songs are amazing, like 'stars spell out your name' and 'avajibber', but it ventures into that forced weirdness you mention.
whose name I've forgotten
B&WM has its moments - quite like the one about the swan - and 'marmalade' has a nice tune - but yeah it's wayyyy too kooky for its own good
but then didnt cos it's ridiculous that two people would be using that capitalisation.
anyway, i am very confused by this and i dont think i like it
i really like it. not sure i'd want more than a couple of tracks on an album in this fashion but its more focussed than 90% of their stuff.
got it in me head this morning i has.
used to bloody love them live
i've seen A.p.a.T.T live twice and they weren't. they're all scousers right?
and aye, saw ex-easter island head (with aus i think?) at union chapel. lovely band.
