well, playin nottingham social in february, so guessing there is a tour.
enjoyed seeing them live a few years ago. Killers were shite though
did not see this coming. winner!
(and, lest we forget, a major label deal)
i was very 'meh' about their stuff anyway. were they any good live>
i have a spacky keyboard and spacky fingers.
But they wrote a terrible, terrible second album and it all went to total shit. I feel pretty let down by this band considering how amazing their first album was. Rarely have a band gone from a 10 to a 1 in my estimations.
really? maybe i'll give them another listen then.
it really is.
I saw them play at the 100 club a few years ago, and they were very good.
I didn't hate Pawn Shoppe Heart as much as you obviously did - I thought it had some good songs. BUT the production reminds me of why I never listen to Nevermind - the production is completely inappropriate for the type of material they were recording. It sounds terrible - big and clean.
It's ok at best. I saw them at (what was) the Dingwalls and Jack White was watching (before they scrapped obv.) i said hello to him, he was the most uncomfortable person I have ever met - he looked like he needed a massive poo just cos I wanted to shake his hand...
Anyways, at that gig, the Datsuns came on with the VBs for the encore, which meant there were 8 musicians on the Dingwall stage! Hooray!
(that I know of).
