their last ep then...
Yeah, the EP was weak but The Sophtware Slump is an all time classic for me.
that's a shame. I think I'll dig out said record now. They put on quite a good show as well.
they could be great or shit !
I saw them twice and got one of each.
They have been getting worse every release since sophtware slump.
they've been coasting on the same sound for way too long.
interesting they basically split up 'cos they weren't making any money. how successful to you have to be to totally quuit the day job?
farewell album is half decent
They would have made more money. Their last album was depressingly average. Maybe if they hadn't been trying to tailor their music to a record-buying public, their album would have been better and sold more copies. Maybe it was a self-destruct in the face of music commerce.
Maybe maybe maybe.
Yeah, I don't know many people at all who actually make a living at music. Even ones that are quite successful. There are a few though. But I always think maybe they have other schemes they just keep quiet about.
ridiculous how many medium/large indepedent musicians have to hold down day jobs.
I think your right about Grandaddy and its such a shame. Ever since the sophtware slump (which was very good) they've been in creative freefall, attempting to hit a more mainstream audience and losing what made them so appealing in the first place.
may have make a lot more of money if V2 hadn't been obliged to pay a lot to get them...
They still never sold enough records ( even if Sophtware slum was released 3 times in France...)
Add 22-20s to the list.
I never liked 22-20's, but their farewell statement on their Myspace page makes a lot of interesting points about the nature of being in a band, and the pressures therein.
gorra link to that myspace?
How much money do they stil own their record company ?
first two albums were absolutely brilliant, everything from Sumday onwards has been rank-o. Probably run out of ideas.
they probably don't 'owe' the label anything.
that they must have cost a lot of money with no chance now to ever repay their label.
First good band gone in 2006...
