now they were awesome, I guess they have spilit now. Anyone know what the members are doing now?
says they've split. don't know if they're doing anything else.
I <3 them.
i lose you
mbv mbv mbv mbv more mbv
(at least thats what it sounds like!)
i really cant see the comparison to MBV. maybe a few songs are a little similar to songs like 'she loves you know less'.
arent life without buildings summat to do with Aereogramme?
i knew someone was gonna say that.
i was just quoting lyrics from the leanover... im sure she says "mbv mbv mbv mbv more mbv on hifi" or something.
of trying to decode Sue Tompkins' vocal style. Only highly trained stenographers should even approach it.
Really, really great band, yes, and I think they actually split not long after Any Other City was released. Paul Smith off Maximo Park often talks about them as a big influence.
i was lucky enough to catch them playing at spitz once back in about 2000 i think... they were pretty awesome. she hopped around on stage like a rabbit.
MBV MBV MBV Hi-Fi. I put it in a lyric quiz on here a few months ago. Amazing band. Amazing amazing amazing band.
is fabulous, one of those "i remember where i was when i first heard it" songs.
i always though it was "boy you drunk......drunk boy" as oppose to drum and drummer.
the way she threw the papers all around as she danced and sang made me assume she made a lot of them up live?
if it's the one where Querelle supported and I first saw them.
It wasn't as good as the gig I saw prior to that in Undersolos. Very odd, very mad and very cool.
they passed me by at the time, but happened to pick up Any Other City for Â£1, a couple of weeks ago, in a bargain bin. Bought it just because it was on Tugboat, and what a bargain! It's a superb album, well worth a shiny new pound of anyone's money.
last copy of it a while ago.
shiny mental loveliness.
and one of their tracks normally goes on a compilation CD.
I am missing the first single I think, though: Just have the album, Is Is and the IRS and Young Offenders...
was just new town/the leanover, so if you've got the album...
they were a band out of time really - they should have been around in about 1979/80. glad they weren't, though.
it was on one of the Rough Trade compilations. I do love it.
comp this afternoon, that's what made me start the tread.
So wish I had seen them live.
two of them are in Pro Forma. I'm going to see them in Belfast next weekend.
LWB were great!
