I'm not being a thick-eared idiot here, am I? They are tripe, right?
and I kinda like it. Hmmm.
maybe <abandon reply> would have been better
being a thick idiot!
I guess they're just one of those bands that are gonna divide opinion. Personally I think they're great. I saw them last night at The Social and they were really good. Fair enough, they may not be the most original, but they've got tunes aplenty, and that will do nicely for me.
the latest release isn't as immediate as previous singles but good. Much better than the pigeon detectives that everyone was creaming their pants about last week.
theyre very ok. theyre songs are reasonably catchy.
And they stole the title of our fanzine for one of their songs. Oh the fame.
lead singer annoys me.... and the music bores me....
We supported them recently and they were average at best...and not very friendly either...and their shoes were only OK.
Did anyone read their live review on here? Quite amusing, worth a read! :)
with rumble strips in leeds. so then i'll know.
Didn't really like the DiS review given about the EP. Hope they can keep up the good output so far.
theyre deliberately NME-generic, but i think their arrangements and lyrics are inventive and interesting enough.
i thought your review was a bit harsh, but they are acquaintances of mine and Bloody Good Blokes and such like, so i may not have the least biased opinion.
..the point in your review about why they should be boring. Just the same as everything else. So now they're yesterday's news. That all makes perfect sense.
But I can't help but really REALLY like them. They're just somehow better than the other bands that sound like that. The songs are SO catchy.
i listened to their myspace and it's not very good. But well produced songs would probably sound better.
Decent, better than 4/10 or whatever you gave them anyway.
I have 2 of their songs and they seem slightly better than the usual NME razorlight libertines stuff.
Come to think of it I saw them a year or two ago. Don't remember anything about it though.
And they added me on msn. Which is nice :)
