Fringe - I'll keep it in mind on the Volume 17 comp.
Could never find anything on them...
doiron - gone gone
i'm not really sure how to answer this one
all i could find about Fringe on the net is that they apparently changed name to everstar and that the singer Sophie Clarke is apparently still active around Southampton...
by the ziggens
They supported Jesus Jones once back in 1993 (?) and were amazing. Never could find anything out about them - not a damn thing
like an episode of 'behind the music'
I saw them a couple of times circa '91. They were ace. The singer once told me "we p*** on NIN". His name was Joe Banks. I have a couple of their demo tracks on tape somewhere... Crushed and Kill Hampstead. No idea whatever happened to the band.
And yes, this answer may be 8 years late.... but lets keep the info flowing. :-)
all i know is they're japanese.
A song I heard in HMV one time. It's from the 80s or early 90s. Sounds vaguely new-wave or something, like what Duran Duran might come out with and the only lyric I remember is "...the barrel of a gun".
Every couple of weeks I hover on the edges of suicidal madness trying to work out who wrote this song I can barely remember.
(to see what condition my condition was in) - Kenny Rogers (from the Big Lebowski)
Supergrass did a really good cover of that song.
Andrew Vincent & The Pirates - Bahamas.
The cheeky scamp.
had a song called Barrel Of A Gun...
Holy shit... could it be my journey is over?!
Quick, tell me what the chorus sounded like...
serated guitars going thraight for the jugular
Guster - Barrel of a gun
which goes something like
"4 3 2 1 .. when at the barrel of a gun" and is on their "Lost and Gone forever" LP on Sire Records
Could be. However, I've never heard of Guster and I know for sure that this song has been around well over 10 years, has a chorus that many would know if it were hummed to them and is by a fairly well known band or artist. I just can't remember who it is... Depeche Mode are in the lead at the moment, I guess.
someone who's heard of guster!
They are far superior live than on record, there, now un know somethng about them too :)
But i quite liked goldfly and parachutes back in the day. Lost and forever gone was OK and for some reason I never listened to their later records...
And it's got strings all over it right? I think this might actually be it. Nice one, folks.
study for falling apart.
incredible instrumental jazz punk on the Inner City Sound compilation ( http://drownedinsound.com/release/view/7266 )
i contacted their press agent and everything, and all i could find out was that the name was pronounced "cough cough"
i heard a song by a band called lastdaynohumanvoice and i cant for the life of me find their record anywhere. Dont suppose any of you have heard of these bastards?
ive heard 2 songs by them off Epitonic. 'A Message to all the boys in the back playing air guitar' and 'Cars are turing into beds now'. If anyone could hook me up with any info, please do :D
This hip hop/blues group that had a few songs on Amped on XBox
by Matson Jones
by serenade of martyr. who the fuck were they and what happened to 'em?
A martyr, even.
QOTSA cover by Franco Saint De Bakker...
Big Band style cover, with... well... weird as fuck vocals...
Argh I heard that HMV one too and i have no idea who did it, shazam failed me!
the lost classic of the 90s
Somewhere betwen Folk Implosion and Clouds Taste Metallic
who had four songs to download on download.com (search for them on there), very GvsB, Constantines, God Machine, really really good but alas no more info or released anything, or responded to the message I left :/
They were supposed to release a second album on Lakota.
If someone knows why it never happened...
i contacted the PR man for the comp i found them on, and all he could tell me was that it was prnounced "cough cough" and that they were sometimes called **** ****
oh and that they were a late 70s australian band
For A Love Supreme
I downloaded this about four years ago, loved it so much that I went and The Datsuns album like a div. Turns out I adored The Datsuns album that I accidentally bought and soon forgot all about these guys, who are they? who knows
lyrics of sixth form ilk but musically proper good, grade-a nineties alt rawk. think they're Belgian.
I love this tune. I know nothing about the band.
Got a few plays on XFM back in the day and I bought the EP as a result, but next to impossible to find out anything about them online. This is an absolutely fucking amazing song.
'The House that Heaven Built'
The band never went on to do anything - probably failed to get a record deal and split, but for some reason I still remember the song. Somewhere between Interpol and Hell Is For Heroes, great stuff.
New Faith - Little Death
also on an EP called Stare
probably not the best track by a band I know f-all about but the one that came into my mind first, bought the 12" from a charity shop a couple weeks back on the basis that it had interesting cover art, ended up being a good slice of baggy shoegazey indie from the early 90's*
*obvs that means it's completely and utterly forgettable but y'kno
now I listen to it on youtube it's shit :(
Heard it on Peel a long time ago. They sound like a Sisters of Mercy tribute act. I play it on Youtube every now and again.
I retrospect I dont think its very good,
