was not their debut. they released an EP and another LP, 'Day Of The Great Leap', before their self titled.
didn't this come out like two years ago?
calling it not strong and then linking to a review giving it 9 out of 10 is not the best way to make a point
my stupidly tall friend is blocking my head in that crowd shot
do I get to this house party in sheffield
it sounds awesome
white lies were ace at leeds
so were los campesinos
They're coming to GRIMSBY! They can be added to the fantstic list of bands who've recently played gigs in this town:
Bring Me The Horizon
The Pigeon Detectives
God I wish Fuck Buttons or Rolo Tomassi would come back here instead.
more like going
don't know where that is but i'm doing
i feel mentioning this is important
I was only there to see frYars (who I missed due to my timetable being wrong :( ) but I had nothing to do so I stuck around. I was pretty impressed.
which I wasn't at all expecting
apparently they're huge in scandinavia
We've had Broken Social Scene, Stars, Johnny Foreigner x 3, The Mae Shi, The Most Serene Republic, This Will Destroy You etc in the last few months. Until the Academy opened though there has been a big gap in the market for bands who aren't big enough to play the arena but too big for plug/leadmill/octagon. Now bands won't automatically go and play Manchester instead because they've got the Apollo.
about time sheffield started coming up with awesome gigs
(shame i'm at home for summer and seeing them at latitude anyway)
because it's totally a 10 out of 10 for me. But then I read the review and I can totally get where the 8/10 is coming from.
So overall rating aside that's a really good review of one of the best British bands around right now.
well I never!
is like nostradamus or something
last year I saw TV On The Radio in Brooklyn for free and they were putting bands like Annuals and Dan Deacon on for free every week. I mean look at these line ups
all for free. I wish we had stuff like that in England :(
don't be lazy
i'd give this 6/10 anyway
and maybe play a set on the 'as yet unnamed previously known as the carling stage' earlier on then fuck yeah i'm all for it.
If not then whatever.
THE HOOSIERS ARE COMING TO GRIMSBY AWESOME!!!!!
man why can't Jeniferever or Fuck Buttons come back instead of those tossers?
Kids won't know what's hit them.
time to drag up some of my useless mates from sheffield
I would think they would freeze it and later use it to impregnate women.
I hope this works because then my mate will be able to afford to go to Roskilde and will pay me for the extra plane ticket I booked for him that he no longer wants (the cunt)
I don't think they're playing in london enough...
but obviously yes
get a mega drive and streets of rage too!
even though this is in the easter holidays and I should be back home in Grimsby there is going to be absolutely nothing stopping me coming back for one night to see Johnny Foreigner - for a pound.
And then when i'm actually in Sheffield, The Harley is only 2 minutes away from where I live. Awesome!
best thing they've ever done - even better than pink squares.
Amy is the girl who sings, Torquil is the guy!
fuck you george bush!!!
they're playing sheffield at the leadmill on the 23rd!
I wish I went to see them last week :(
the comments are slightly vague! which is the best vegetarian restaurant ever? how did los campesinos find the gig? I thought it was bloody ace and high fived Tom in the process.
they're fucking hilarious live even if they do play the worst music i've ever heard
