this bloke is great, create quality lo-fi chilled tunes. Why are there so many dissers who think he is crap?
I loved him live, but I got a record of his and I haven't listened to more than five of the songs.
it was because he was as dull as mud when he supported Death Cab. You have so little faith.
Thing is, I ought to like him being a fan of that kind of thing, but I haven't heard the tunes to convince me yet. Exodus Damage is pretty good I guess. What song(s) might change my mind.
I can't stand it. He's more MOR than Moby.
... I caught him playing a solo set, and it was just lovely. He's a really nice guy too, one of those that you want to do well, not some arrogant arsehole who thinks he's the best thing ever.....
also look at his webpage - he gives away tonnes of mp3s.
I was another one of those who only heard of him from the "Bill Gates Must Die" 'controversy', but I've been happy with his output.
and yeah, can't understand why everyone seems to hate him..
I think his music works better when it's just him and the drummer. have faith
Funnily enough... the reason why I went to see him solo, was because when he came back with his band he was supporting Death Cab. They'd have stole over an hour of my life if I'd have gone..... actually thats a lie, as I'd have been on the train home ;)
