This is what alvvays said on 6music
still not quite as obnoxious with as the " all caps, all consonants*" groups. none of them will look nearly as cool as XTRMNTR.
*except when they include one because the shortened word is not immediately identifiable.
Churches would be lost in a sea of churches, while Chvrches is very specific.
Because they're CVNTS
Sickens me Clive (Cliue.)
Back in 2012.
They were called Churches right then. Here's the topic: http://drownedinsound.com/community/boards/music/4410279
19 August 2012, baby!
Struggling to find the thread but I'll have a trawl through my PMs and see who it was.
What a hero she is, would've never heard of Churches (or CHVRCHES as I believe they're now called) were it not for her. Thanks wishpig!
Being a damn stubborn dude, I actually searched the whole DiS forum to see who really mentioned Chvrches (Churches then) first.
The band released the first single and announced their presence in May 2012 and my topic was opened on 19 August 2012. THERE ARE NO MENTIONS OF CHURCHES/CHVRCHES ON DIS BEFORE MY TOPIC. I'm actually the one that introduced Chvrches to DiS and I proved that.
"Yeah there was! I remember sending them a pm to say thanks for sharing".
On PM it doesn't count. It must be public (introduced to DiS, not to your pal). If you remember X, doesn't have any value without a proof. Where's the topic?
Maybe you should try searching the forums using Bing?
It would be interesting to find out for sure if it was wishpig.

As you can see my topic New talented band: Churches is first all the time. Find any solid evidence that Wishpig was first and I will recognize that he/she was first.
So you're not likely to find her on Alta Vista (little reference to The Streets. Did you like it?!?!)
You know, it's okay to be wrong about things from time to time :)
yep. it was definitely wishpig. 100%. shame all of her posts have been deleted. you'll just have to take our word for it, deep-blue.
"You know, it's okay to be wrong about things from time to time :)"
I'm not wrong this time. You don't remember what you ate last month and you remember insignificant things from 4 years ago? Gimme a break. You're just trolling right now.
No evidence, no case. I was the first one and I proved it. Case closed.
all of 'shpig's posts were deleted
so you haven't really proved anything
isn't an insignificant thing to remember
Which if I've understood it is black metal fashion for teeny-boppers
the first band to do this: SEO
all the rest: lack of originality
It I discovered chvrches
with his useless comments. We're cursed!
What kind of shitty topic is this, anyway? What do you want to achieve with it? Why asking "Why do so many bands now use the letter V in their name as a substitute for another letter" when it's obvious that the reason is to be Google friendly? Next time, stop asking stupid questions, pal.
your tone is antagonistic
I'm nice to nice people and antagonistic to antagonistic people.
asked her how it was going and then immediately internally thought: "probably great, obviously"
music website Drowned in Sovnd? Bet she said "dunno who that is pal."
You vgratefvl jerks.
Still no edit function on DiS. It's 2016, ffs.
who are a different band to Chvrches. not sure who introduced us all to Chvrches but they've had a lot more staying power.
Maybe you're legit ignorant. In any case, Churches is the former name of Chvrches: http://i.imgur.com/moCJng6.jpg
So, if you don't understand that, Churches = Chvrches.
like Battles and Battle
derp-blve probably thinks Grimes are Grime hahaha
