Can someone tell me when they're supposed to be releasing an album, bitte? I can't survive with about... 3 mp3s.
a mini album in Japan. You can get it on ebay and import but I think the full album comes out March time. I'm looking forward to it too.
how long has the japanese mini been out?
was released in October. It contains 5 of the 6 tracks from the singles (DVT is missing).
Dead Man is one of the best songs I've heard this year.
thank you for that comment wrighty; i somehow glossed over this when i got the single, & listening to it now i'd concur, dead man is a great song.
mum's the best song I've heard all year. LOL
The name also makes me think of LongView. Who I'm now not sure exist. They keep rereleasing their first single don't they? If I haven't made them up then i met the singer and he was a nice guy, pissed off with his record company though...
I don't think they are anything like The Music. On the two occasions I have seen them live they've been pretty fucking good. I'm not sure if they will translate well to record but I'm looking forward to finding out. I can't wait to see them live again too.
are by no means shit. Their albums are a bit pointless but live they completely justify their existence.
the clique have spoken.
the longcut are good, and the music receive far more abuse than they deserve, the first album is dandy and their gigs have proved highly danceable for me.
And I've only seen them once.
But they were really good. I like them a lot.
Wishpig's like The Music comment worries me though. I can see what she means, and I hate The Music.
I can see where you could get the music comparison from, and to be honest the songs I'd heard prior (and after) seeing them live I've not really liked. But I did really enjoy their live show, the musicianship was really impressive, and the songs had a momentum and energy to them that they haven't really been able to convert record yet. Plus, great visuals, which Iâ€™m always a sucker for. And trust me I hate the music and the cooper temple clause as much as the next man. And by the way, the music deserve ALL the abuse they get. They are fucking appalling and are easily one of the worst bands ever to come out of this country.
i stand by the music, good first album and a great gig experience. albeit a toss second album.....
Equals shit. End of.
care to actually justify that at all?
are ace live and sound nothing like the music really that's just laziness. It's just really easy to lump bands that have a few of the same elements in common in together and people love to categorise.
Similar vocals and a similar looking singer = more or less the same band to some people.
actually sound very much like The Music!
what i actually thought when i saw them live was that they were like the cooper temple clause if only three of them turned up to a gig.
i imagine they have some potential on record, but not too much.
me. -gen- wholeheartedly endorses the coopers.
are definitely the truth !
'Poll of 2005' form I did on Traynor's thread has proved accurate:
Both bobbygeorge and patricide say the wisest stuff.
i always tend to find patricides comments really thought out and worthwhile, i wish i could express my thoughts that way, mine just come across as gobbledeegook i feel.
