I'm finding it difficult to bring myself to care very much...
first album was spot on... b-sides were great too.
second album was good/bad in places.
new stuff was god awful.
so i'm quite pleased 'jj72' is over... and good news that the singer is starting up a new project... he's got a top voice.
I remember getting the first album on the basis of two or three live performances but it seemed to have been produced by an incompetent who'd never seen them live. There just seemed to be zero energy in it.
Maybe it sounds better now. I might dig it out again if I can face the almost comical nature of the lyrics to 'snow'. :D
It's hardly grammatically incorrect is it?
It just... does.
But then sometimes it is important to add the up, because many a time I have seen a message board thread saying "so-and-so split" and got really worried for a second, before realising they were talking about a split single.
haha, no WAY!
i liked their last album
has been recorded and finished for about 18 months now and still hasn't come out..
That sucks. What label were they on? I'd check but their site offends me.
a sony offshoot.
greeny has gone on a number of times in the past about the band and the label didn't get on in the "vision" for the band.
they did a download single from the album last july and a proper single last september and it went nowhere. rumours were then that the label would shelve the album if it sold poorly.
so i'm not surprised by this, as it probably gets him out of the contract.
I love how wikipedia:
has that Janice Joplin gag that did the rounds :D
album two is better than one!!!!
their first album was great, the second had its moments too.
as draining and fighting a losing battle inevitably must be, that's a shit reason to break up.
posted soon after the thread?
WHO SAID THEY READ THESE BAORDS, ROFL ETC.
missed out the:
but still sad news.
Will the third album be released someday...
after the inevitable fan campaign.
that there will inevitably be a fan campaign now release their third album. much like the one for Mansun's aborted fourth album.
never sold as much records as Mansun and there shouldn't be that much fan remaining...
I listened to it constantly when revising for my A-Levels. I haven't listened to it for years, I might just do that now. They were brilliant, weren't they? Weren't they?
Sometimes good ? Yes.
And really boring live...
had some really good songs on it. Also some crap songs though... I never heard the first album at all except October Swimmer.
