Why did they quit ?
and seemed to consider themselves "above" playing toilet venues.
i just think they were being prissy, but if they feel they have better things they should be doing with their lives then fair enough i guess...
like they were thinking they'd already lose a fight...
i just thought the whole thing as a bit of a slap in the face to bands that tirelessly play small venues. and i told them that in a comment on one of their blog posts that was filled with simpering "we'll miss yooooo!" type responses.
to my knowledge, two of them went to university and one of them joined the church of scientology.
but they did get pretty badly burned by The Industry.
SO BAD :D
get to meet Tom Cruise.
Who really wants to come back at point 0 when you were, even for a brief time, in the 'may-become-big' league.
Still can't believe how badly their record label managed them...
I think it was independiente anyway. Whatever. Independiente are shit!
Kinesis got dropped because you're wrong and they actually suck. This is trut so pure.
They were good at one point though. And they Obey and Zyklon B were quality tunes. Then they started thinking that they were the next big thing.
We just think differently.
And you're not nice.
Got fairly done without lubrication and they still work as hard as ever. But you can see how it's a slippery slope, it's difficult to imagine them ever having the same kind of success as with Neon Handshake.
But I saw Oceansize support them and kind of started liking them instead.
But I still have fond memories of dancing along to their stuff on MTV2 and loved Handshakes... to bits.
In fact, I think I'll just give it another spin for old times' sake... :)
