Cast - Walkaway
*I look forward to some 90s britpop bore telling me otherwise below.
was a good one too.
but they've got bloody loads. Way better than most of the groups they were lazily bundled in with.
Slack Jaw is their best song. Science and Nature is a weird little pop album that I really rather like.
Tastless rubbish all of it but there's a glimmer of somethnig in Animal Nitrate
(Walk Away is fucking shite btw)
the rest of them had 2 or 3 each
I mean the 'good' one
Sleep Well Tonight
London, Can You Wait?
Fucking love Gene.
the good one
which was okay, or Fighting Fit, which was good but they were losing it a bit by that point.
That's the one. The rest really are all turd.
see also Shed 7 - Going for Gold
Northern Uproar - From a Window
Step into my World is sublime.
And SIMW is a great call
Like every other shit song they did.
Which was probably better...
if you'd said What do i do Now?, that is
Otherwise, 3 solid singles = DISQUALIFIED
it sort of adds to the vibe of 'rubbish band bats way out of their league for 3 glorious minutes'
Nice Guy Eddie
What do I do now
and I'm adding Statuesque
Sleeper officially disqualified
I quite like Sleeper. I had no idea. Sale of the Century was pretty good too.
(they may have had some other good songs but I can't remember so let's assume not)
Motorbike to Heaven
On a Leash
You're losing my respect in this thread Hatfood.
Motorcyle Emptiness (manics one good song)
On a rope by rocket from the crypt (not Britpop so VOID)
And maybe the clothes show theme?
then they were still fucking shit. All though the closest they got to a half decent song was Free Me.
but it was all shit.
The thread title says 'rubbish'. Concentrate lad.
was just as soul-crushingly shit as everything else Cast vomitted into our ears. If we re-evaluate Cast now, I think we'll find they were considerably worse than we thought even then.
Love is the Law
McAlmont & Butler
I prefer Me and You vs the World anyway.
which is still shit but kind of utterly insane
(and maybe Blind)
also much less amazing but still pretty good Fireworks and
If You Can't Live Without Me Then Why Aren't You Dead Yet
On and On
Happy Again and
I was pretty much just ignoring the question and playing 'name a song from that era you like' because I was a bit bored.
Not to mention
Bennet - Mum's Gone to Iceland
END OF THREAD
but they had others. They were a lot better than anyone gave them credit for. Journalist jealousy.
The funny thing is, for all the hate that came from the hype, people seem to forget that the first album got really good reviews, and to my mind deserved them.
it was cold in the grave by the time they came along.
(basically the second side of free peace sweet is ok-to-good. 'good enough' is hell on earth)
used to like it, i think.
is quite a nice freakout vamp
we're diving fast here, folks
I like that one.
why am i doing this
Nah. Kidding. They had no good songs.
But Place Your Hands has been played to death at student club nights and was never that good tbqhm
King of the Kerb
Just had to be patient.
But surely Menswear - I'll Manage Somehow?
Let's All Go Together
Time for Boys
and a bunch of others
Sleep was the "really good" one. Average at best, the others.
Back in the game.
by No. One Cup
Ooberman and 'Shorley Wall'
and possibly Hillman Minx and 'I've had enough'
let the thread sleep now
the original isn't so great tbf
Britpop was dead in the ground by then
