have signed to rough trade, will they finally make a transition to the mainstream and recognition that they deserve?
will find it tricky to get past 40,000 units.
i mean albums. too much music week.
Loved Appropriation and Separated By Motorways. Any news on an album release date?
i only know about rough trade because i bumped into someone from angular records on friday...
Or is it public knowledge - I mean was it already public knowledge before you started this thread? Sorry, I'm too lazy to check the band's website!
i just remembered about it a minute ago...
but i might be wrong...
but live they are a fucking joke.
good to see they've got a deal at last.
and didn't watch them playing their instuments. The female guitarist was a FUCKING joke. SHe needs to practise how to play, instead of practising how to pose. She had a fat ass anyway.
i noticed that when i went to see them last...
"That is some reaction. Was your puny masculinity threatened?"
More relevantly: some of the more recent stuff hasn't been as deadly, and dunno about going mainstream, but 'Autonomy Boy' is still better and sharper and less derivitive than anything from about 95% of all spuriously praised and hyped up guitar bands of the last 5 years, so there is still hope.....
as for the horrible people thing, well....Ikara Colt were a shower of utter fucking cunts, but didn't do their music any harm. up to the first album at least....
I didn't think I was that drunk though.
horrible horrible people
was fucking awful. and having played with them on more than one occasion they're completely up themselves tossers.
why are they horrible?
what pissed me off was the review in the nme (i didnt but it before you start) it basically said they were awful live but that was ok beacuse they were cool because of it. what is that all about?
they were great as they could only play for 14 minutes and that having a guy with his fingers in his ears was a badge of honour.
i dont really want to start on about them here...as it seems to be somewhat of topical debate. it is i HAVE to add the worst thing i have ever read.
The State Of Music Journalism 2006, I think you'll find (see also 2001, 2002,2003, 2004, 2005...)
came out on good & evil, epworth's label, that goes through 679...but they didn't sign. i would've lost loads of respect for 679 if they'd signed them...
It was only when reading a review of The Streets in Music Week that I found out.
because it's only 50% owned by warners rather than 100%. think warners pretty much leave them to get on with it with regards to signing bands - they just use marketing etc
