every one "hit" wonder should start calling themselves by the name of teh song in question.
nearly 1000 people have heard it, you mean ?
(and ive seen them live twice)
AND it was cross promoted with and in the soundtrack to brit-shit-flick Black Ball.
this month !
But they were offered a second-album deal by Barclay ( part of Universal )and didn't take it so they're quite 'big' in France...
why i know :(
i might go then.
Can't believe this thread get so much replies...
the bloke from dodgy (nigel?) leaving the band?
dear lord, i thought i'd travelled back in time. played a whole load of other mid-90s indie "classics" as well.
I'll admit I haven't heard it for, ooooh, about ten years, mind...
...pretty much my favourite band of the time, but they managed to bury their genius (pop melodies for the indie sector without turning into Ocean Colour Scene) in so much superfluous publicity bumf that put people off (the press adverts, some of the videos...)
If they had ditched the forced 'cheeky chappy' stuff they'd be far better appreciated today than they are - it saddens me when people use them as a symbol of 'the bad old days' but I can understand why it happened. They deserve better.
Incidentally, I think it was Andy rather than Nigel in the band though...
I bought a cd of theirs thinking it was an album by 'The Mass', who are a metalcore band with a saxophone player. So it was somewhat disappointing. So a name change is a fine idea.
that MASS were great. Went to see them twice in London and walked away each time singing their songs without ever hearing them recorded. I bought their album too which is fantastic.
The new stuff on the Hey Gravity page sounds fantsatic.
just before i went to sleep last night, and i dreamt about m.a.s.s.! i was trying to figure out which guy left and is now replaced by a girl, ha ha..
i've seen m.a.s.s. a few times, one of which was in croatia (!!) .. they're lovely people, and justine is a nutter ha ha
