I love them. Do you love them too?
that you may be on your own here Seymour....
poor man's Geneva.
I have to say that the 'big' single 'Long Time Coming' is one of my 'most loathed' and always has been. But when I heard the album I really liked Nearer Than Heaven.
Though obviously not as much as the Geneva track it sounds like from my uni days.
i thought you liked McLusky? YOU HAVE BEEN OUTED! here is your tweed jacket and plaid shirt, now drink your milk.
I just have a fondness for the nicer things in life as well. Hence, I'm currently wearing a Belle & Sebastien T-shirt whilst listening to Atari Teenage Riot.
aimed at theo - check the tigermilk thread a bit down, where his response to someone asking if people here liked B&S was "no, I like mclusky".
THEO IS A PUNK ROCKAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA ;)
And, hey, I have a lot of great tracks and bands in my list of things I love. Bellend and Sebastian just aren't one of them. :-p
Check that bad baby out: http://www.last.fm/user/TheoGB
they will be remembered for one song really won't they - that one on the advert
even my mum would say 'he sounds like a girl doesn't he' - if she'd actually heard it and wasn't deaf/blind
new album is still scheduled for january/february ( last month for the indie loser to get a hit, remember 3cr...).
If all goes according to plan they will get dropped in July !
I listened to the album one week ago and was - once again - disappointed.
3 good songs, lots of shit !
I really like The Delays. Does that mean I'm a cunt? Or they're the cunts? Or Rough Trade are the cunts?
I should stop saying cunt.
album in april, big or dropped in october.
you're a cunt, then I'm a cunt too.
That said, I'm a cunt anyway. And I secretly like Shed Seven, so that makes me a DOUBLE CUNT.
Shed Seven, and there ain't no secret about it. I must be an uber-cunt.
a Shed Seven influence in that single I bought of yours.
all of Shed Seven's first album and most of their second. On guitar AND bass. I used to be in a Britpop band.
Even more cuntish: at the same time, I played bass in an ACID JAZZ BAND. Which makes me a QUADRUPLE UBER-CUNT.
I always wore a Pop Will Eat Itself T-shirt on stage, though.
sure The Poppies T-Shirt redeems this whole sorry debacle to be honest, or just makes you some form of OCTAGONAL MEGA-CUNT. Or something.
(I know it's not octagonal, but what is the actual word for that?)
with OCTAGONAL MEGA-CUNT written on it.
That would rule, hard.
Well I enjoy most of their Best of...
But everyone know's I'm a cunt.
buy one of my t-shirts. I'm having them printed at the moment.
..only have three good songs, but I don't care, because they're three bloody ace songs.
And they weren't that bad live.
britpop band ?
an after-school covers band, called 'Delicacy'. We wrote a few of our own songs but it was mostly just a sixth-form thing. We had a really good logo though, and we did a blinding version of 'Be My Light, Be My Guide' by Gene.
was all about the logo. If I couldn't write it on my folder, I didn't like the band. This did mean that I loved Thurman and Powder though, so it wasn't a steadfast rule.
I'm so wearing my OCTAGONAL MEGA-CUNT t-shirt to both January events...
even like Posh? Great logo, rubbish band. There was a surreal couple of weeks when they were touted as the Next Big Thing 'cause Justine Frischmann had been seen at their gigs, despite the fact that 'Shark Attack' sounded like Bucks Fizz covering the Chockablock theme tune.
Powder were awful. Menswear were ace, though. They even had a @ in their logo! How FUTURE!
I'd forgotten all about Posh. I bought the single. It's amazing how faithful you can be to every word of the NME at such a young age!
Menswe@r were ace though, that's true. I actually remember tracing the logo onto a sheet of paper from the cover of 'I'll Manage Somehow'. I rooled.
Shall we form a Britpop tribute band? Obviously our name has to end in "er" - we could be OCTAGONALMEGACUNTER.
I'll be the obligatory floppy-haired bassist with a fag in his mouth who looks like a cunt.
Make sure you have an easily copyable logo though. And OCTAGONAL MEGA-CUNTER t-shirts to sell to small children.
it should be OCT@GON@LMÂ£G@CUNTÂ£R
Where did those weird A things come from?
MBA guitarist Mat, who can play every Guns N Roses solo note-perfect, would like it to make it known that he's a ROCKTAGONAL OMNIFLANGER.
I be the frontman, the exact midpoint between Jarvis, Damon and Tiny from Ultrasound?
That logo needs a bit of work though ;)
Damon's hair, Jarvis' legs, Tiny's gut?
If so, the answer's a resounding YES.
Provided you sing like Louise Wener.
And by 'best' of course I mean 'most horrifying'.
'Mon the OCTAGONAL MEGA-CUNTER!
But they sound like The Bangles!
*minces away to a dark indie corner*
wasn't big enough to help them sell more than the last Idlewild album or the Embrace album that get them dropped...
Their luck might be that their label doesn't need sells as big as a major.
haven't heard a great deal of stuff, but disliked them intensely live, and don't like any singles i've heard.
Low are only licensed to Rough Trade for Europe and nearly don't get promotions.
The same can't be said for the Delays.
And yes, it's good to see a label that doesn't care only about sells.
Still i'll be afraid if i was in the Delays !
I hope second album will be better than the first.
Like the title of message says, really. I was a bit disappointed with the album but I saw them live earlier this year and they were fab. Looking forward to the new album.
And I love the Bangles as well. They were probably the first band I really got into and I was gutted when they split up.
I think their next album's gonna be a lot better than the debut, now that they're playing around with synthy stuff. The new stuff has sounded fantastic the times I've heard it live. I love Greg's voice too, though I figure some people may not.
Impossibly catchy stuff. The first four tracks on their debut are great. The second half fades a bit, but still I like them.
And before you say it's geographical bias, Southampton also brought you CRAAAAAAAIG DAAAAAVID.
Besides i think a cross between the Byrds and the Cocteau Twins is quite a nice idea, y'know?
took against them because of the antics of their twat keyboard player in his stupid twat hat. Twat.
One person's definition of confidence is another's definition of twattery.
thommo likes them, he's sent me two of their songs on mixtapes now
I heard a song of their on the radio yesterday, advertising, like
that's why i said it, like, four posts up...
like 'nearer than heaven'
it's my shame and my pride. really gorgeous pop gorgeousness.
Long Time Coming is pop brilliance, but I'm not a fan of Nearer Than Heaven. Haven't heard anything else..
. .to be fair, how annoying is that 'wowhoowowow' noise NOW?
anyone want my delays album? I'll swap it for something...
I think I've got an Ugly Kid Joe album you could have.
And 500 Miss Black America albums.
PM me a way I can buy it and have it shipped stateside. Be quick, please, cos knowing dear old dad, he'll want his credit card back before I do something really obnoxious with it. ;-)
I haven't read the thrad, I just wanted to add my drunken tuppence woth. No, it's worth more than that. My dunken bloody fiver's worth innit.
