Well... the jeniferever site is www.jeniferever.cjb.net but they're acyually Swedish.. so I don't know if you want to take them down maybe?

Also, this thread should be a sticky.... a great resource.

Also, another band to add. thisGIRL are an ace band from where I live, released a stunning album (Short Strut to the brassy front) on lockjaw, as well as having stuff released on Fierce Panda before being promptly dropped. However, they are starting to get more attention again, and could end up being big.

www.thisgirl.co.uk

At the risk of sounding like a bad music journalaist, they have an emo/emocore sound with a twist....

Andrewbiles
01-15-2004, 04:28 PM
Ah, Sweedish eh? I just took most of the bands I could see on the thread and jotted them down onto the list.
ThisGirl are terrible man, I don't know how you could like them. Apparently they've changed over the last year or so, but I remember seeing them doing a thing for Trouble tv (along with Not Katies and some other crap bands) and it was one of the worst songs I had ever heard. I downloaded a few like 6 months after that and they were no better so I completely gave up on them. A friend went to see his mates band play, who were supporting ThisGirl, and he also came back saying they were crap, so I've completely given up on them. I'll add them to the list though.

Maybe its my home basis.... its kind of compulsory to like them round here lol. Nah, but yeah, I really got into them, their sound is kinda wierd to me, and i wasn't so keen at first, but it definitely grew on me, just had to get into it...

Andrewbiles
01-15-2004, 04:52 PM
Ah, each to their own I guess, just not my cup of tea.

Andrewbiles
01-15-2004, 06:40 PM
Wow, I've just been on a great little run of new Brit bands.

Cyrus (www.cyrus-online.com), not the best of bands, quite heavy with some nice parts. 'Fifteen' is quite a good song, through the first minute I thought I'm not going to like this, but then the vocals turn good and the song is actually really good. Worth checking out, I didn't listen to the other one they have on their site.

Through Silence (www.throughsilence.com) have not been around for ages, but have a kind of Thrice style to them. Very good music though, it goes really quite melodic in parts and excellent band, I've downloaded all the stuff on their site and I'd recommend 'Lending a close hand' the most out of them. Definately worth checking out, probably going to be big if the rock music trend stays the same for a little while longer.

One Word Answer (www.onewordanswer.com) are supporting Through Silence in Brighton on the 6th of March, which I may consider going down to see having friends down there at Uni. It's quite a typical pop punk song that they have available on their site which is a bit of a shame, I was expecting higher of them, but for pop punk it's not bad, worth checking out.

Pitchblend (www.pitchblend.com), the site doesn't seem to be working right now, probably being updated, but they've been bigged up by magazines like Kerrang before, so worth checking out I should think, especially as I saw something about a free cd on their site!

Lastly is a band I have yet to hear, but have ordered the cd so I'll tell you what they're like soon, Beyond All Reason (www.beyondallreason.co.uk). They've been played over Radio 1, Funeral For a Friend have name-dropped them and apparently 8 record labels are after them! There's 2 tracks available for download on their site, but in Windows Media format (which I don't like) so check them out too.

Andrewbiles
01-15-2004, 08:40 PM
Ken & Barbie hell, the Pitchblend site is up now, and I've just gone downloaded a couple of their songs and it's amazingly good stuff. I'm suprised that they're not a lot bigger already. I really recommend you check them out, there's 4 downloads and you can request a free promo cd! I stupidly didn't see the labels/managers/zines part where you get the cd, press clippings, biog and photos, but I don't know what I'd do with them if I got them anyway. Definately a cd worth getting people, even if it's not usually your favourite type of music.

andrew, the razorlight song is Stumble and Fall.

Andrewbiles
01-16-2004, 07:24 PM
Ah, that's quite a good one, quite catchy

buzzlikeafridge
01-16-2004, 07:45 PM
woo! my band made the list!
whats listed is the mp3 (most of them being bad quality site) at http://payola.dmusic.com, but the official site is currently at www.geocities.com/payolaband/ (stupid .tk address doesnt work anymore)

anyway yeah, probably one of the most exciting bands ive heard for ages that are on the list are peace burial at sea. the songs downloaded off their site kick and i cant wait to get the album when i can spend cash again!

theres a local band that people talk a lot of called the New Lev Yashin, who are pretty good, not usually my style, but i like them and their musics pretty good. www.thenewlevyashin.co.uk

if you live in the Middlesbrough/Stockton area you can catch our big gig at the Stockton Arc on the 28th Feb. It's a small chance that any of you are though... :rolleyes:

keep those brits coming!

Woahly crap, people must be desperate!
I was just looking round ebay again for the Franz Ferdinand 7" that I have (thanks again Buzz), and just take a look......
http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=2588906460&category=27347&rd=1
That's insane if you ask me

EDIT: I just thought I'd help you lot become as clever as me. Although this has now made me in debt by about 60, Domino Records are still selling the 12" vinyl and cd single of 'darts of pleasure'. The 12" was 4.90 (including p&p) and I just thought it was a genius idea to buy one now while I could when they're selling on ebay for 18. The 7" copies are now unavailable and so rarer, but the people on ebay seem not to have brains at all. In a few months I may be selling all the Franz stuff that I'll have on vinyl (which'll be everything by next month), and this will hopefully amount to a lot of profit. So I thought I'd help others to get in on it by going here http://www.dominorecordco.com/artist.php?artist=171
It's not a definate earner though, but it seems it's ok at the moment (fingers crossed).

Andrewbiles
01-18-2004, 02:05 PM
Again I return........
Eastern Lane (www.eastern-lane.co.uk) they supported The Libertines back in November I think and they've had a couple of releases (an EP, an album and single(s)). They've got one song on their site worth checking out called 'Vena Cava'. They're on the same label of British Sea Power as well so I hope that sways some of you.

Strangely the FF promo album is selling cheaper!

I told you the people on ebay are dumb, I mean they're still selling them on amazon for something like 8, why pay 21!?
I'll check out that Fusion lot tomorrow at some point I think
:cheers:

p.s. There's the 12" going for 18 on ebay as well and 4.90 on domino records, how f*cking dumb! I might buy one of all of them, or 2 so I can keep a copy, and sell them on.

Well it's good if you're selling something and just put *RARE* in the title, people seem to bid stupid amounts. I can't wait till they allow me to sell :D

Andrewbiles
01-19-2004, 11:21 AM
I just checked back on the ebay status' and the cd (with 23 hours left) is going for 36.02! the 12" (with 8 hours left) is going for 21! and the 7" (with 2 days left) is going for 13.50!
I think I may have to invest 5 in the cd as well in a couple of days. that's like 70 for all 3, and bought for like 10/15. Some people are so f*cking dumb it's unbelievable

01-19-2004, 12:55 PM
wow, andrew.... that list must of taken you ages to do.

some top notch bands on there :)... ill take time to check some of them out. ;)


and ill post some links, if i find any.....

but you've probably posted them all anyway :p:

Andrewbiles
01-19-2004, 01:20 PM
Yeah did take a while, but ah well, not much else to do at the moment. Thought it may be useful as well. There's only 4 bands I don't have the sites for now so if you can help it'd be great, but if not, don't worry. If you can think of new bands as well, feel free to post them

i think you forgot to put Coldplays website up.

www.coldplay.com

Andrewbiles
01-19-2004, 08:55 PM
Added Jonny boy, but I didn't forget to put them up, I just figured they were big enough for people to already know their songs quite well and be able to find their site pretty easily, but ah well, they're up now anyway.

EDIT: Just thought I'd say, you can't buy the Darts of Pleasure 12" anymore, and the Darts of Pleasure EP has stopped being made also. If you missed out, all I can say is..... unlucky.

Andrewbiles
01-20-2004, 05:55 AM
I've just got Beyond All Reason's demo EP through the post, it's good guitar work on 'This September', and overall it's not a bad song, but then track two (the title track, 'The line we draw between'), the screaming is overdone and a little too hardcore style screaming for my liking. I don't think this lot are going to make it huge, but there's a chance that they'll break into the underground a bit more than they have. I'll listen to the next couple of songs and if my thoughts change, I'll write it down.
They're kind of Funeral for a Friend with a screamer sounding like something out of Cradle of Filth (I shudder at that thought).

Andrewbiles
01-20-2004, 08:58 AM
I now have a problem with Domino records. You order something from a place and you expect them to have it right if it says "in stock". Apparently not, now I'm not getting my 12" Franz vinyl and I'm getting my 5 back, ooooh, just what I wanted! :no: :mad: :(

EDIT: Just thought I'd say, you can't buy the Darts of Pleasure 12" anymore, and the Darts of Pleasure EP has stopped being made also. If you missed out, all I can say is..... unlucky.

thats a shame, i wanted that EP :sad: , but ill probably get the new album soon, and i suppose some of the songs will be on there.... i hope [jon crosses fingers] :)

oh, another thing....does it have to be the official band sites, because I bet there probably will be many excellent fan sites out there.

Just A thought.

if i find any good ones, i will add post them, and say that they are not the official website.

Well I've just managed to order the EP from america off amazon, through some company called Caiman (who I've used before and are trustworthy, just a little slow). I'm guessing there'll be a couple more but I'm not sure.
Official sites is easier at the moment due to the amount of sites you could have for one band. I'll add Travis at some point soon.

Bloc Party, kinda like London's Franz Ferdinand, art-rock kinda stuff.... if you like FF, then try it www.blocparty.com They're getting pretty big too, debut singles out soon, one to watch....

Mclusky haven't been mentioned, been around for a while, but never realy made it big. Recording their third album at the moment with Steve Albini, who also produced the previous one. I don't really listen to them... but hey if you like a quite rocky punky thing, there ya go... www.mclusky.net

I must say that I have heard The Zutons alot resently. They have been mentioned before i know, but they are pretty good. Pressure Point is what ive heard, its cool.

Andrewbiles
01-24-2004, 08:17 PM
Yeah, I heard them the other day too, can't remember where. I think they were just mentioned on some programme as being one of the next up & coming.
I got the 'Still Water' EP by Melaton the other day (bought off ebay), and I have to say, they've impressed me again. I still prefer the 'Falling Star' EP, which is more reachable in terms of buying, but this one just proves that it wasn't a one off cd by them. Again only 4 tracks, about 15 mins long, but it's all so great, it's a feel good EP. I seriously recommend them (again) to any Coldplay fans, but think of Coldplays better stuff, 'trouble' meets 'yellow' meets 'god put a smile upon your face' (the only 3 Coldplay songs I can listen to), and it beats them all. Seriously a band to watch out for in the future.

I've got a couple of "new" ones which I forgot to add previously and have just found out about.
Hondo Maclean and Engerica, I'll find their sites later, unless someone else wants to put them down first. But yes..... here's a little about each.....

Engerica...... "Not your average Essex boys, Engenerica are a group of three guys in their early twenties who are a law unto themselves with their musical outlook. Their fierce, antagonistic raw punk sound and exhilarating live performances have created a bit of a stir on the live front and it is these qualities that earned them the support slot for the 80?s Matchbox B-Line Disaster last year. So far the ?Squirrel? EP and single ?Trick or Treat? have been the band?s only releases to date, however it?s likely we will be seeing a lot more of them in 2004."

Hondo Maclean..... "Welsh post-hardcore rockers Hondo Maclean are earning themselves a reputation for being as colourful on stage as their quirky 80?s cartoon character namesake. This will be the band?s first headlining tour since the release of their last EP ?Chasing Angels?, released on November 17th last year and are hotly tipped to capture a far larger audience in 2004 following a host of shining reviews from the UK music press. Mixing death metal and hardcore, Hondo Maclean exude an extreme, chaotic on stage performance, their forceful lyrics delivered by frontman Ben Woosman can be an almost scary experience. Hondo Maclean truly go against the grain and demonstrate an individuality and charisma like no other band of their genre."

I really recommend you check out Carling Guest List Sessions (http://www.carlinglive.com/sessions/index.html) as supporting Hondo Maclean (in London) are Midasuno. If you're looking for a bit of heavy music for the end of Feb, I really recommend that gig at the barfly.

This is the best video I have ever seen from a British band. The whole montage effect of different images over each other is excellent. I really recommend you look out for this video. The best part is when some black liquid seems to explode over an image of the band playing. I don't completely get the whole mosquito idea behind it all, but it's an excellent video. Don't have a clue what the song was like really cos I was so wrapped in awe of the editing. Anyway, look out for it.

Keane, I do not understand this band, I haven't liked what I've heard, but I can't say it's much, the new song seems pretty crap though, just like that Delays one. Urgh they annoy the crap out of me.

my mates band, who i really hope are just about to break into the stream, are called 'Silversuit'.......an english/welsh band, influenced heavliy by grandaddy, the furries, pavement....(jesus, paul is always playing granddady in the car:rolleyes: ).......which means that i really like thier stuff....theyve got i reckon around 16 songs which they are hoping to record, i think theyve done a 6 track..and other stuff, but any way.

they are currently supporting the zutons and dogs die in hot cars around the country at various points, and have been played by peel (who loved them), and apparently by whiley the other day......my mate from birmingham, whos also here at uni with me (paul) is the bassist...so heres my plug, but really, 'JP', is on hell of a talented musician.

Silversuit's singer kind of reminds me of the Motion City Soundtrack guy (check out 'Future freaks me out' if you haven't already). It's a great vocal style. I'm really liking what I'm hearing here Courtney, be sure to update when they have an EP for sale, sounds really promising, and playing with Dogs Die in Hot Cars is cool, I'm not really all that familiar with the Zutons, heard one song and they sound ok. Your friends sound as though they could steal the show though, that's my opinion on it.
I would go Buzz, but sorry, quite a long trip for a gig, would consider it if one of my friends was at uni up there but I don't think any are. Hope all goes well with them though as I'm sure they will.

yeah, JP's a talent... a great singer, but also a very good lyricist, and hes enviously talented.....keys, guitar, bass, his vox...jeees....yeah, ill keep you posted anyway....im pretty sure they are planning to release something bigger....although i did forget to mention that the record that has had radio coverage, is called 'beehives'...i think....anyway, thayt had a limited indie release in a few stores...look out for it.

as for dogs die....i heard one of thier tracks, and liked it, and had heard alot about them here and there, and when i saw (i think it was the warlocks), they supported, and i was very, very sorley dissapointed...i really disliked them.......then again, i had the same thinhg with the open and the duke spirit recently who i saw at the louisiana

a random side note......this weeks, and last weeks NME has posters of the white stripes in...at the Bristol Lousiana...which is the size of a small disco dancefloor, and one of my regular and favorite venues;)

01-30-2004, 08:19 PM
I'll look out for the single then everywhere I go. I just searched for them on yahoo and I found a pretty bad review........

"I caught half a set by Silversuit a couple of weeks ago at The Old Railway in Birmingham and I have to say I was far from impressed, they seemed to be a blend of everything I dislike about indie. A band with no songs that really standout, a singer with a less than impressive voice and no energy. The three tracks on here do nothing to sway my opinion.

The first couple of tracks Invincible and Play It Again are rather dull plodding tracks that are performed well enough but simply lack excitement or passion. The final track Spam does fizzle along with a little more urgency and should be used as a starting point for the band. But having seen them live Spam and though better than the rest of the material still needs a little work.

I'm sure Silversuit have the musical talent and I know that they've got an audience for their current style, but currently they're not doing anything to interest me and I hope they can develop into something a little different."

(http://www.sherwoodforest.fsworld.co.uk/rhythmandbooze/bands/Silversuit.htm)

Not good, but I like it, and I consider reviewers to generally be wrong with their opinions.
Cool about the dancefloor, but I can't say I'm gonna spend money on a magazine for that, however, your shop lifting thing could be done, getting caught though and being 18 isn't good.

They are American, otherwise I would've put them up in here. I think they're very much an American band on a small label so I really doubt that they've been on the radio here. I don't know exactly though, so you could've.

Marc Salmon, http://marc-salmon.dmusic.com/ and www.marcsalmon.com (coming soon) is a great musician and has great music, I can see him making it pretty big so check out his stuff on dmusic before you have to start paying to hear it.

Jaded www.jadedmusic.co.uk are a local band for me, and they were advertised in the Gazzette paper that comes through every Friday. Apparently they're entering a Battle of the Bands competition soon to win a Sony record deal and they have a good chance of winning it. The singer is pretty hot as well and only 18 so that makes them even better, in my opinion anyway as they're just like 5 miles away :D They have a few streams on their site, so yeah, take a listen.

I'll shove them all on the list tomorrow at some point, although the Mantra site didn't seem to be working. I don't have a clue how to listen to that Wasted Youth song either at the moment, but I'm quite liking this Short List song ('fortunate misfortune'), it has a kind of ska vibe to it as well. The vocals seem to be pushed at a low level, if that makes sense. It's something I have a problem with as well, that they're trying to just speak the vocals rather than shout them or properly sing them. It's good though, I'm liking it. I'll check out 5 More Minutes later.
No problem with the support, you've made some really good music so there's no reason why the gigs should go badly at all.

EDIT: Oh yeah, thanks Jaded for the cd, can't wait to hear it.

I've only just heard that Vaults song today. The video was gross, with all fat ladies in lingerie, can't say it was something to watch again, but a pretty good song.
Got the Chikinki vinyl for 'Assassinator 13' finally the other day and I love it. I seriously recommend anyone that fancies listening to a little bit of alternative electrorock kind of stuff to check them out.
The Open are the band to watch out for in the Sunday Times' Culture magazine, which if you get the Sunday Times I recommend you have a look at cos it's pretty decent.

That's all for now. All the Brit bands aren't flowing into the lap anymore, hopefully at the Incubus gig they'll have a Brit band supporting, but that's months away now at the moment.

I've had a good couple of days lately, musically and generally, so I'll give a little low down of some of the stuff I've heard (well, only two things, but good in my opinion).
Cherry Falls (www.cherryfalls.co.uk) have recorded their first album and singles so you'll all be able to hear a little from then soon, and they're worth checking out (a band I saw support The Apartment).
Chikinki have created a free dvd, well 500 copies of it, you have to have the e-mail newsletter for it, so if you want it, or want a chance to get one, PM or e-mail me your e-mail address and I'll forward it to you asap.

EDIT: sod it, here's the link, saves me future effort http://www.trinity-street.com/register/chikinki/
TheVinesRule also sent me a Keane one for a 7" boxset or something who's with the same company, I figured it was free, so doesn't matter http://www.trinity-street.com/register/keane/ I think that was it if anyone's bothered.
Oh, and I heard the new Vines song coming back from Bournemouth today and I have to say, it's a bit of an improvement, but I didn't love it.

Andrewbiles
02-11-2004, 04:17 PM
Yeah, it is a nice track Buzz, nicely found, a shame that they're not Brits.
I got Colour Of Fire's 'Cut it' single today, I'm really not sure about this one. Quite hard in parts and just not what I wanted to listen to today to be honest, I may like it some other day, but I don't really recommend Alt & Indie fans check them out.
Got Shouting Myke's 'For Your Pleasure' Ep as well today, and this was good. It's heavy in parts again, but in much smaller doses and has some really nice music to back up the singing, this is worth checking out.
Jaded's demo I've not had the chance to listen to as of yet, seem a friendly bunch of people though from the contact I've had with them. Recieved a nice note with the demo, which I've decided to keep as well, don't know why, just seems cool I think. Apparently a shread solo in the last song which I'm looking forward to hearing cos the lead guitarist really seems to know his stuff, having 11 years of playing experience behind him. Really watch out for this band in the future, or just read my review when I've listened to the cd properly, I'll try get a shortist one done soon and post it up here.

Oh, and the Franz Ferdinand album, got the double disc edition today, strangely exactly the same packaging as the Incubus double disc album. I haven't got round to listening to either of the discs yet, but I'm sure they'll be ok.

02-11-2004, 06:57 PM
I've added the few bands previously mentioned by Buzz on the last page, and also I've added another band that I just remembered.
I was in the Punk & Ska forum the other day for some reason and noticed someone asking for ska bands and it reminded me of King Prawn (www.kingprawn.co.uk). Excellent, more hardcore, style ska music. I don't know if loads of people in this forum would be into it, but if you've not heard of them, just check out a couple of their tunes. I seem to remember they released 'The Dominant View' at some point last year which had a pretty crap video, but was quite a good song.

Andrewbiles
02-13-2004, 02:49 PM
Ok, I've had a good couple of listens to the Jaded (www.jadedmusic.co.uk) demo now and I have to say I rate it highly. The lead guitarist (Ed) has clearly got some Joe Satriani influences which is incredibly obvious in the song 'Fly' which is my favourite on the 9 track cd. That's the standout track for me, however through the album/Ep/demo the singing, guitar work, bass & drums are absolutely spot on. The solos are excellent, and the singing of AJ sounds so familiar in sound to someone, but I can't work out who it is. Well, I highly recommend them, they're not a heavy band like a lot that I have mentioned in this thread, and they have 4 mp3s on their site to check out so it's not like it's costly to find a very talented band.

Andrewbiles
02-16-2004, 07:05 PM
Came across this lot via Radio One's website somewhere, Kenosha, (www.kenosha.f9.com), from what I've heard so far they're quite a promising band. They're more of an Alternative sound than anything else I'd say, although 'leave it all behind' has a bit of a pop-punk feel to it. Worth checking out though.

Its MoonSkaEurope so you gotta be European to know them quite well. I was at my local 'pitz - local moshpit ska, punk thing' once (don't ask, for the love of god don't ask) and they were playing and i didn't really think much of them. "Dominant View" sounds alright but the rest just doesn't appeal to me.

But i love the bassist in the dominant video when he does that weird "now now now now". Started cracking up, infact if i saw it i would still crack up. :haha

Ah yeah, I remember seeing all the adverts for the MoonSkaEurope gigs on P-Rock when that channel was still about, none of the bands on that label never made it past them and onto a bigger label. Strange really as most of them were crap.
I don't remember the bassist, I just remember the quite heavy ska they created.

I just felt that I should add this band. They're the remnants of Mahumodo since the singer left and they've created, what sounds to be, a great new to be band. They're called DevilSoldHisSoul (www.devilsoldhissoul.com), they only have a short soundbite on their site so far and it sounds great, nothing near as heavy as Mahumodo, but I'm expecting there to be some hard parts. I really recommend you just click on the web-link and listen to this piece for 30 seconds. I really cannot wait to get my hands on an EP, or go to a gig of theirs, seriously, check them out.

Santa Carla (http://www.santacarla.co.uk) from Liverpool have gained themselves a place of the 'Under Surveillance' soundtrack with 'Mister Operator'. From the songs that I've heard, they sound to have the same kind of influences as Stroke 9, but more funky & more upbeat. It's hard to describe their sound, it's funky/rock/electro/pop kind of sound, it's interesting, but good if you're in need of cheering up. There are a couple of mp3s here.... http://www.kingsofar.com/archives/000341.html
Well check them out, apparently they've had a bit of airplay in the US and Australia already, and have had a few good reviews on their site.

Well no, we havent been in contact with mekong delta guy for a month, so i dunno whats happening there, but a promotions guy came to see us though and he liked it so it was cool.
Yeah the gig went ok, sound was messed up on the first 2 songs but i think the sound engineer sorted it afterwards, and people seemed to like it, but a lot of people seemed to forget us because we were on first & there was 2 more bands on. but still, i had fun, yeah it was good.
Oh yeah and the compare guy called us "sublimely brilliant" :D and this bbc tees guy came to interview us afterwards so there should be an article there.
See some photos: www.geocities.com/payolaband/liberties.htm

Andrewbiles
02-19-2004, 09:05 AM
Cool, BBC Teeside (spelling mistake probably) came and interviewed you?
You have a left hander in your band I see from the photos.
Going first at a gig has to be the most annoying time cos 1/2 the people don't show up till later cos the other bands tell them what time they're going on at. However a lot of big bands like U2 and stuff played their first gigs to about 3 people so crowds will grow.
Glad to hear it went well though.
Who's the "compare guy"?

02-19-2004, 04:17 PM
-yeah they just asked what our names were, influences etc, it was pretty simple but they seemed enthusiastic.
-yeah laws is left handed, and proud heh, but its a ***** when buying guitars & stuff cos he has to pay more or get them converted
-yeah it was a bit annoying, and also the fact that at the end of the night, no one seems to remember you because all the other bands have been. still a lot of people complimented us and we got a pretty positive vibe.
-the compare guy was this phoenix-nights-esque guy, who came on before we played, made a joke and introduced us, but he seemed to really like us, so he's cool heh.
-a lot of people came late so that was annoying, but overall there was less than 40 people there anyway so it didnt bother me haha.

Well it's a good sign that they've taken interest even if it is just names and influences. Next time it may be asking for set list, then autographs and a slot on one of their shows. You never know.
I know exactly how Laws feels. I had to go on a three day search and spent 900 to get my Jaguar, but it's lovely and was well worth the money (well, my parents').
Some of those introduction people can be really f*cking annoying and you just want them to get off, there was one at the Limp Bizkit show I saw, and what a pain.
40's a good crowd for a small-time gig. Anyone from UG show up?
Would just find that quite funny if they managed to make it along.

nup no one from UG came :( Pyr0 was supposed to, but he had to go to some conservative (?) meeting or something. ah well, still had quite a few friends there come to support us. and we got a bit of cheering from the crowd which was cool.
the introduction person was just odd, the sound engineer guy said it was time to go on and we were about to start and he ran on and told a joke about a roof falling on his head when he was on the toilet? then he introduced us, it wasnt annoying, seeing as though he was only there for 15 secs max, it was just odd and amusing.
we have another gig in 9 days or so, on the 28th at the Arc in Stockton, they kind of rent the stage out for decent prices to local bands & give us the tickets etc to sell so we can make all the profits. it should be a bit of a bigger gig, as well expect about 100 people or so, so yeah thatll be the big one. i'll PM you with all the details Tez if you want, the Arcs a big place in Stockton Town Centre, so it's pretty unmissable, long journey though
;) Still...I guess it's only 3 entry so that not bad really! (theres a support/joint band as well).
Hopefully we'll record that one so you'll be able to listen. Should be recording a demo as well at Easter, so there'll be that to look forward to.

Oh and some UK Band News: 22-20s & The Zutons are doing a tour across Britain sponsered by NME supporting new british music. There's shows at Newcastle & Leeds, so I'll definately be at one of the 2 because 22-20s kick. Check out www.nme.co.uk for the full list of dates.
Dogs die in Hot Cars are on at the Empire in Middlesbrough this Saturday, but I dunno if I can be bothered to see them, plus it's a bit annoying trying to get my friends to come along to see a band theyve never heard of. By the way if you got DDIHC's "I love you cos I have to" EP, theyre going for like 10 each on ebay. Woohoo! I put mine on amazon for 8.99 because I need the money & I have the mp3s on the pc!
www.dogsdieinhotcars.co.uk for the full list of dates + theres support by the Zutons (i've decided i'm not too keen on them, but it just happens that theyre supporting two great new British bands), so maybe I'll see what theyre like live anyway!

02-20-2004, 07:13 AM
Haha, Buzz, you know you can still buy the Dogs Die in Hot Cars cd for the one you're selling for 5 off hmv.co.uk
I would say buy a couple and sell them all over amazon/ebay to try and gain a profit, but it's risky, especially as eil.com have priced theirs lower than yours!

buzzlikeafridge
02-20-2004, 03:50 PM
yeah we'd love to do gigs further afield in places like bristol...but basically we cant yet cos of transport issues...i mean laws will be driving after the summer so we could probably get around easily then, but until then we have to depend on lifts or hired vans/drivers, which would be quite expensive. Also, we're doing gigs up to easter and also recording an EP at easter and then having a break from playing live (still practising) until the summer because of exams etc, but we're hoping to do a lot of gigs during the summer, so we could be going pretty far afield then. But we could be playing Leeds soon, we've been offered transport and stuff to do a gig at The Fenton pub, which we could take up.
As for the Dogs Die In Hot Cars CD, haha people on ebay are such mugs! still i doubt youd get much more than 5 on amazon for it, if you put the cd on for 7.50, amazon would still take like 2 off anyway, so i dunno if the 50p is worth it!

F<c>uck me.....

Just got back from Youth Movie Soundtack Strategies and 65 Days of Static gig.... fuc<c>k me they're good....

Youth Movie Soundtrack strategies were supporting (its an alternate headline tour and it was 65 days of statics hometown gig... so...), and they were ace. Everything I've come to love about them, beautiful songs, beautiful melodies and brilliant bursts of aggression and noise.... they played a new song too which was ace... it builds to a point, then stops, and th entire band just stand about singing this wierd dodgy little thing (a capella! thats the phrase...), then they just go nuts with it.... fuc<c>king ace.....

Then, 65 days of static were on... inf<c>uckingcredible...... I'd heard a few mp3s, and thought they were OK, but nothing could prepare me for how good they actually were. Within thirty seconds of starting the 'frontman' (in quotation marks because they don't have vocals... but he was kinda the frontman....) was tearing about the stage, jumping off the drumkit, leaning on the monitors, just a mad blast of arty noise terrorism..... Unsurprisingly, the rest of the set didn't have quite as much energy, but was still brillinant. As a band, they have superb dynamics, and they use their laptop and samples really well, truly adds something to the music..... they'll be playing soemthing, and it'll die down till there's just the samples going, then they'll suddenly explode with mad arty noisy goodness... truly an incredible band... really hard to categorise... i'd probably call them post-rock electronica or something... but with a healthy dose of hardcore energy.

I think their website is already listed in this thread... listen to some mp3s, but if you can, get to a gig... the mp3s really don't justice either their live set or the rest of their recorded output.

ALthough i spent about 20 quid on merchandise in the end, which was shocking really, a YMSS t-shirt, the YMSS cd.... two 65dos cds..... some 65dos badges......

Seriously, anyone who claims that modern music is crap, or stagnant or whatever has to listen to these two bands. Their minds will be changed.

02-20-2004, 08:46 PM
Haha, your review makes me laugh. Sounds interesting though, I kind of visualise 65 Days of Static similar to Mars Volta. I didn't get round to downloading their stuff when you mentioned them before, but I will, but if they are like Mars Volta, I'm not sure that I'll like them too much.
Sounds like you had a good night watching them anyway, I'm suprised you managed to get all that stuff for only 20, that's bargains!

I wouldn't call them Mars Volta-ish really.... they're.... i can't think of anyone like them... they've got some totall electonica dancey things (good electronic dance, not mindless trance) and some totally full on post rock noise trashathons..... and then the gentle post-rock buildathons:p:..... they're just cool, like I siad the mp3s on the sit don't do justice, they're good, but not as good as they're other material... their drummer is really incredible.... and surprisingly it actually works when they have all wierd laptop glitchy drum clicky nonsense going on whilst he's drumming, its just insanely cool... :p:

Yeah, the closing date for demos is 28th of June, so you'll have chance to send in the EP you're doing.....

Also, I'd definitely recommend sending your demo to all the webzines etc you can find.... www.rockfeedback.com www.drownedinsound.com Channel 4 Planet Sound (check page 357 on tuesdays for the demo section), do all that kinda thing, because people do read these things, and a lot of bands who've got great reviews on these things have gone on to big things.... both the 22-20s and Hope of the States had reviews on PS early in their career, got their first major press in them, its well worth doing.

Two days after my b/day that closing date is.
I think Hope for the States first press was The Sunday Times' Culture magazine. They were mentioned in that about 8-10 months ago now before anything was heard of them and before their site was properly up. It bugged me that did. I just thought I'd add that in, so maybe send something off to The Sunday Times, like a cd and a few gig dates because they put in a new, small band every weekend.

They have a few live mp3s up on their message board (http://pub64.ezboard.com/felementforum62947frm2.showMessage?topicID=68.topic), and releasing a single at some point this year through Seeker Records (who I can't find).

a large gig considering how well known the 22-20's are known, and how well known the support are, especially when compared to so many completely unknown bands, who would have completely shown up ddihc

Anyway, I'm completely loving Future Kings of Spain right now. Everything I buy by them is well worth listening to over and over and over. Just got to get their album next.
Oh, if anyone wants Franz Ferdinand's 'Darts of Pleasure' cd EP thing (5 tracks, 'Darts..', 'Van tango', 'Shopping for blood' and two home demos) for 11 (inc p&p), feel free to PM me and send me the money.

Personally I'm not gonna rush and buy it like you've done, maybe cos I'm yet again poor, but I don't love the track overly much anyway, fortunately. It's a strictly limited single though, whatever that means, but it'll probably still be on sale in a month or two.
Anyway, I'll add them to the list as I don't think they're already on there.

I felt I should add Johnny Truant (www.johnnytruant.co.uk) to the list as well as I hadn't realised they weren't already on there, and they're playing a place called Free Butt a week tomorrow in Brighton and thought it was too funny not to mention. A pub called Free Butt, how odd, and it doesn't even appear to be a gay pub.

The Bombjacks (www.thebombjacks.com), my friends band once did a gig with them at ULU (Something London University, quite big, Alkaline Trio play there and stuff) and apparently showed them up, but The Bombjacks are the bigger band and have made it to Japan and stuff. How do these Japanese do it? They seem to have the best taste in music, although I've not heard anything by The Bombjacks, just they seem to know everything first. Anyway, yeah they're pretty big underground, having stolen members of Capdown and Skirtbox to do some recording and stuff, maybe a band worth checking out.
I added some hardcore sounding Brit bands as well to the list, don't really expect anyone to be overly bothered about them so I won't blabber on about them. Check them out at your will.

Seven Stone Lighter (www.7stonelighter.com), basic emo stuff from Scotland really. Just sound American like every other "emo" band. I don't like this emo term at all anymore, it's f*cking sh*t, who in hell came up with it?! Anyway, yeah, they're a small Scottish band, only really check them out if you're in an "emo" mood, it's pretty similar to everything else you see on the tv.

I've got to say, Marc Salmon's site is up and running and I really really recommend you check out some of his stuff. It's all beautifully done. Also added a Scottish band called Toy to the list, but they just sound American and average really, you should just check out Marc Salmon.

Duke Special: www.dukespecial.com, saw this guy supporting Aqualung on Monday when i went with Pyr0 to see them, and he is pretty good. Very lo-fi, most of the songs are just him and a piano...and he has a gimmick of playing a grammophone to play backing tracks on stage (kind of makes him look like a street busker!). It's really odd cos the guy has dreds, black eyeshadow on etc, but he plays really fragile and nice songs, completely what you wouldnt expect. Met him afterwards as well, nice bloke.

Bit of a Payola update: we played the Arc in Stockton last week and it was huge, looots of people there, and there was a stage invasion on the last song! people jumping around & stuff it was awesome. We're booked in to a studio in hartlepool to record a debut EP on March 20th, but we're going to have to reschedule because it's a clashing date, but I think the 21st is free anyway, so we could be recording then. Eitherway, we're hoping to record a 3-track demo out of it, selling the cds for about 2.50 each. I will probably sell them on my account on amazon if your interested in buying one and I probably will make 1 or 2 songs from the sessions available off the website. Upcoming confirmed gigs are:

Thursday 8th April
Liberties, Middlesbrough
Battle Of the Bands Weekend, 30 minute set

Saturday 10th April (*NOTE* Is being rescheduled due to promoter's date's clashing, so will be on another day, i'll keep you posted)
Leo's, Redcar
w/ Shallow Dodgems, Coolio Lasagne & Xanda

We've got quite a few gigs in the pipeline though, so I'll report back when we confirm some more.

I think Matt (TheVinesRule) or Courtney mentioned Duke Spirit (I'm guessing that's who you meant as the link didn't work) a while back, I'll check though.
As for your EP, I'll buy one off you when you have it done, also, if in a year you want any music recorded/mixed/mastered semi-professionally for free I should be able to do it, if you want. I'm gonna be (hopefully) taking a course in Kingston for music technology that I have to learn to mix/record and everything else for with a 26-track desk and using pro tools and I'm told it's free usage of the recording equipment for the students at virtually any time, including weekends. So yeah, if I can afford to do that course then I'm going to do it because I've got in.
I'll still buy one off you though when you get it done, glad to hear that the other gig went well.

I streamed 'Kill me' cos my computer's pretty full and it was a really nice song, 'Let you down' seems a bit more Coral like to me, starts off in the style of 'Skeleton key', still good though. I wish I got tickets to see Aqualung. Was that their seating tour where there was no standing space available? I think that'd be well cool to go to, suits the music so much more I think, I would still like to go even if it was standing though.

Really, really good band, heard them on Peel ages ago, to be honest, can't remember what they sounded like, other than it being good... i think it was vaguely laid back post rocky kinda stuff.... can't properly remember to be honest, but they were very good.

Also, how shi<C>te are the ordinary boys? I hadn't listened to them properly until i heard their new single yesterday... its really, really not very good..... the singer has listened to way too many Ian Dury records to my ear.....

Andrewbiles

I'll add Lapsed Pacifist to the list :cheers:
Just listened to 'Burning', it's not fantastic, the screams are a bit odd, but it's probably one that could grow on you.
I don't actually mind that Ordinary Boys song, it's the only one I've heard from them, but it's not bad.
Another band, The Boxer Rebellion (www.theboxerrebellion.net) now they've got some good music. I recommend you check out 'Palisade', got a nice funky intro bassline and it's just an excellent song. They're touring this month and the start of the next as well, so you could check them out if you want that way. They're supposedly going to be the next Brit band to become the size of Franz Ferdinand, supposedly. (I thought I'd write 'supposedly' twice just incase you missed it the first time).

EDIT: The Boxer Rebellion website is soon changing to www.theboxerrebellion.org

Tears in X-Ray Eyes (www.tearsinxrayeyes.com), one man band from London, I should think he gets session musicians in for live performances, not one of these people with the drums on his back. Really laid back music, reminiscent of The Thrills kind of style (from what I've heard so far).

The Aqualung concert was the full band standing one, we were standing up, which was cool, but i was stood infront of a bass speaker which wasnt very good for my hearing afterwards! still a good gig though :)

Well if I decide to accept the course I'll tell you if I actually get good at the whole recording/mastering thing.
Any idea how much money amazon takes off you when you sell something for around 15 on there? Just out of interest cos I know you've sold/selling a few things on there.

My Favourite Co-Pilot, they've changed their name to Stories and Comets lately, but there's a 4/5 gig they're doing with Days in December and Cars as Weapons in London next week. I can't find their site just yet, but I'll add it when I do. My Favourite Co-Pilot are quite emo though, check them out if you want to....

Was it a band called Two Tone Karma? This is the closest I could find http://www.camera1.free-online.co.uk/ygg02feb.htm Look like that?
A few streams here...... http://stage.vitaminic.com/main/two_tone_karma/all_tracks/
Can't find a homepage though
I know what you mean about the rating things, people look but don't rate, I honestly can't be assed with it myself, but fair dos if you can.

EDIT: Ok, I'm clearly the biggest dumbass ever now as their site was linked on that vitaminic page (http://members.lycos.co.uk/twotkarma/index.html). There it is. I can see your relation with them to radiohead after this one song ('541'), sounds pretty good, not the best recording, but quite a cool song.

Got my free Chikinki stuff this morning, very exciting, I was expecting just a boring crappy dvd with a load of rubbish on, but instead it was a great promo dvd for 3 of their songs. Plus, they slapped in a 1/500 vinyl with the remixes of the new song (which aren't especially great, but, free!) and a nice round sticker.
The vinyl remixes aren't as good as the actual song, but the fact is there's only 500 in the world and so if they ever make it big, it'll sell like hot cakes. The ink on the dvd was still not dry and so I've got black in all over my fingers and the sticker was just a bonus really.
Check Chikinki out if you haven't already, they've got a new single out Monday ('Like it or leave it') and so there's no excuse not to really.

God, another Sat night at home, how depressing, but watched 'Battle Royale 2' again tonight. Didn't like it much the first time I saw that, this time wasn't so bad but gets incredibly boring after the first hour, and the first 20 minutes seems basically the same as the first film to me. It seems they've cut bits off the dvd as well from when I saw it in the cinema at the end of last year. (watch the first one if you can, you won't regret it)

Anyway, another band......
Firstborn (www.firstbornmusic.com). I was expecting another heavy band when I saw these guys advertising their gig with Days in December on HWG's site, but they're suprisingly soft. 'Last week' is a beautiful song and 'One deed' is a bit heavier, but still a song really worth checking out. They're on a small tour with Make.Her.Cry in May which starts in Luton, and somehow ends up in Yeovil! Anyway, they're worth checking out, so do.

We've just been watching 'Panic Room' on dvd. It a really brilliant film, the story is fantastic.

Andrewbiles
03-14-2004, 07:07 AM
Yeah, it's not a bad film that. Forest Whitaker seems to play a lot of these roles now where the film's confined to only a few sets, cos he played the policeman in 'phone booth' as well. I think he did best in 'ghost dog: the way of the samurai', excellent actor though, I wanna see 'four dogs playing poker' next, just sounds funny. Anyway, 'Panic room' was a lot better than I thought it'd be, a lot of people said it was bad when it came out in the cinema, but it is pretty good I have to agree (with you). David Fincher has hardly done a bad film, I mean, 'Fight club' and 'Se7en' have both been classics that everyone's talked about.

It's basically Nanahara (the bloke that won in the first film) has formed a terrorist organisation and the adults send another class to their island to kill him to end the "war". The teacher that died in the last film (Takeshi Kitano), his daughter is in the second one and wants to kill Nanahara cos he killed her dad. The students are all paired up with those necklace things so if one dies (say #14 female) then #14 male's neck thing explodes as well. It's a good first hour, but in the cinema I just got extremely bored and disappointed with the lame ending. I don't wanna ruin it, but it's nowhere near as good as the first. It's only like 7 on www.cd-wow.com though for a 2 disc.

Andrewbiles
03-14-2004, 11:02 AM
Well, going back to the music, two new bands, Marshan (www.marshanrock.com) and Kyra (www.kyraonline.tk). I've stolen them both from people on the HWG message board, but still. Marshan have a bit of a Fu Manchu feel to their song (only full song on their site, 'mind dryer'), also some of the vocals have a bit of a Dexter Holland (Offspring) sound, quite like it though, works well.
Kyra I've not heard yet, they're recording next week so should hear something soon.

On another note, has anyone heard that new Kill Kenada song? It's so much better than their debut, lovin it right now, I can't spell the name of it, it's the state in American named MA that Boston's in, I'm not gonna even attempt it, and then 'murder medallions'. Great song, look out for it. They just shove too many riffs into their music, that's the only problem I've got with them. (I'm jealous that I can't make up so many)

nup i havent actually, and it's funny cos i loved "choke" and keep trying to look for new stuff from them, but their website hasnt been updated since like sometime last year. argh! but i will be buying it when it comes out, is it on mtv2 or anything yet? (don't have mtv2 im afraid!)

Andrewbiles
03-18-2004, 04:19 PM
Yeah, 'choke' was good, 'red & black' (I think that's what it was called) was a bit everywhere for me at first, but grew on me, but this new one is great. Still tonnes going on despite the fact there's only one guitar playing it all, I don't know how they remember all their songs. I saw it late last night on MTV2 and on that NME Top 10 today. They're in a room that I think is rocking, I don't know cos it doesn't show it moving just them getting thrown everywhere, or maybe that's how they play (?). They've got a very distinctive sound though so you'll probably recognise it if you just flip over quickly and it's on. It's getting released in April some time so I'm guessing it should be on things like XFM and Radio 1 pretty soon, if not at the moment. Worth listening out for.
It's bugging me that they're not updating their site as well, there's not really much to it as it has been for the last, God knows how long.

That'll be a good show if you can make it, I'm gonna try make it down if I can find someone that'll go with me. Anyway, the guys from Poindexter seem quite friendly from the tiny contact I've had, their music is pretty decent, it's like emo meets whatever style you'd describe Hitechjet as. Pretty cool, something a little different, I recommend 'Identikit' to take a little listen to if you're going to.

My Girl Sleeps (www.mygirlsleeps.co.uk), I don't have a clue what they sound like yet as there's no mp3s or anything, but they're supporting Hiding With Girls tomorrow night in Birmingham.
Hiding With Girls incidently have a new video available for stream from www.paranoidabouthats.com which at the moment is pissing me off because it keeps flying out of the screen. It's for 'Disasters 1st Birthday' which is an excellent song, and I saw a bit of a preview of the video and it's located in a bar, to be precise, the Rum Runner pub in Brighton.

Selfelt (www.selfelt.co.uk) are on the same label as Peace Burial at Sea (Mekong Delta), play excellent instrumental music, although there's a few samples in their songs ('unlucky (once)'). Mekong Delta describes them as...... "a collection of brothers and cousins, produce a deep, jazzy bass groove crossed with experimental rock. Jamming and improvising they produce sounds similar to those of Mogwai or Tortoise."
Worth checking out, I love the sampling in 'Unlucky (once)', but there's a good bit of funk styled beats in 'Righteous'.
Anyway, check 'em out, and as you're nearly there, and if you haven't already, check out Peace Burial At Sea, a heavy band, but seriously f*cking amazing.

some local middlesbrough bands:

The Hayze- Playing with Hitchijet in London this month Biles! Anyway this band is from stockton and theyre really excellent! Kind of some kind of crazy mesh between The Smiths, Roxy Music and erm... hardcore, from what i've heard. Theyre also superb live, theyre playing a battle of the bands festival with us at easter, probably going to win i reckon (theyve been around the local circuit for ages, so theyre local celebrities! attracting quite a bit of record co interest at the moment!), so be sure to check them out. I've actually lost their website URL so i'll add it when I ask our drummer because he has it somewhere!

Ask My Cat- Not my kind of thing, they play true SKA, but theyre from my hometown of Billingham, and are pretty much legends around here...basically cos theyre crazy and have hilarious lyrics (check out "Yer Havin A Giraffe"). Nice blokes (and girl) apparantly as well, www.askmycat.co.uk

Andrewbiles
03-26-2004, 07:50 PM
I'll keep an eye out for that The Hayze lot then. Hitechjet seem to be getting themselves a nice bunch of support for the London shows, wish I could afford to go along, gonna try saving my money this weekend and go to the HWG gig or a Hitechjet gig (if I can find someone to come along).
Oh, their website is apparently www.thehayzemusic.co.uk but it doesn't seem to be working on my computer right now. Ooh, no, it is....... doesn't say they're playing with Hitechjet anywhere, but The Libertines, Dogs Die in Hot Cars and The Zutons (not a fan myself) all coming up.
I can't seem to get their mp3 page to work though. I'll add them to the list and check back some other time, sounding hopeful for them though.
I'm not a big fan of that Ask My Cat song, I guess it's ok for ska, I like the title, nice usage of C<e>ockney rhyming slang.

Andrewbiles
03-30-2004, 07:24 PM
This thread's not gonna die just yet :D

Loudspeaker Paradox (www.loudspeakerparadox.co.uk), they call themselves female emo, although it's nothing like emo that you expect. It's beautiful sounding vocals and soft backing music. Really nice, check out their only song. I'm sure most people in here will like it a little.

MySweetHeartTheDrunk (http://www.mysweetheartthedrunk.tk), clearly taken their name from Jeff Buckley's unfinished album, but that doesn't matter cos that was still a great album. Recently recorded their debut EP, but nothing's appeared on their site from them since, no mp3s as yet or shop. Maybe one to look out for though.

For some stupid reason I woke up before 8am today. Haven't done that in ages so I didn't know what to do with myself. I came on not too long ago and found another great band.

Future Of Junior (www.futureofjunior.com), great band from Essex. I really just recommend you check out their first track 'Miss Scandanavia'. Really good.
Also this morning, went back to Mark Salmon's site, the music's still amazingly good, so if you still haven't, go check him out.

EDIT: I figured I'd save doing another post for this. Got the new Boxer Rebellion single today, signed, which is a seriously good song. 'In pursuit', really, go check it out. Their video's on MTV2 lately and there's one on their site from what I remember, so you don't need to spend money to hear it.

Hurricane Party (http://www.hurricaneparty.co.uk/). Well I know there's still Darkness fans out there (for some bizzarre reason) so I thought I'd add these guys. Supposedly taking the same influences from 70s/80s rocks, Led Zep, AC/DC and bla bla bla bla..... They apparently wear all the same kind of spandex crap, I dunno, I don't think I'll be a fan of them no matter if they have talent just cos I'll think of the Darkness everytime, but some people may like.

Hmmmm, just ended up on the sh*ttest e-zine thing ever (www.bloodlossezine.cjb.net) and came across a couple of Brit bands on there.
One was Redrising (http://redrising.circa1984.com/) who I have to say are crap. Well as there's only one song to download and none of the parts seem to go together well at all, that's gonna be my basis for my comment.
The other was Lets not lose Mars to the Commies (www.nigmarocks.com). I can't work out if they've changed their name to Nigma or not, but ah well. They haven't got anything up on their site yet, but I hold a bit more hope for these guys than the last lot.

Well, if it actually plays for you at all!
Buzz, I'll add them to the list and check them out later.
Art Brut (http://listen.to/artbrut), you may've heard the single lately on MTV2 and stuff called 'we formed a band'. The first time I heard it I didn't like it, but it's seriously growing on me now. It just seems such a crap idea for a song, but it's worth a listen.
There's also a band called Dead 60s which I saw a video for earlier. Sounded very Specials like style, you know, the lot that did 'Ghost town'. I can't find their homepage though so I'm not completely sure if they're British, but they sound it.

EDIT: Just looked at that Pig Latin site. I really hope they do actually play good music cos their humour is a bit sad, and the fact that they follow it on throughout the whole site, just got boring. Well enjoy listening to them.

I'll add Princes of Monte Carlo to the list and update it again if you can find a site.

Dry Rise (http://www.emulsion.org.uk). I just sat down and watched a bit of Scuzz and there was a show on called 'Demo-lition' where bands send in their demos and then Bowling for Soup talked about it. These lot actually had a decent song, you can download it off their site. Worth checking out I'd say, from Brighton.

After nearly 2 months of waiting I've recieved my Mountain Men Anonymous vs. Teflon Monkey ('as the duck bit back') 7" and I have to say it's top notch. I don't remember hearing one line of vocals in either of the bands songs, but both bands create a very atmospheric feel to their music and I highly recommend it.
There's only 150 that have been made, but I think you can still get them from Big Scary Monsters (www.bsmrocks.com) for 2 or something (including shipping). Seriously, it wouldn't be a waste of 5, 2 is nothing really now is it?
Buzz, I'll send you off the money at the end of the week, gonna sort all my monetary issues out on Friday.

EDIT: Ok, I feel retarded, I just listened to the Teflon Monkey side again and it does have vocals, still I don't think the other tracks do...... I'll no doubt be back to edit again :mad:

Well as bands always say, "we're from Ireland" when they introduce themselves, they don't say which part they're from too often, so I really don't see why it should matter. You're just being awkward because you're from Ireland. I'm sure a lot of other people think the way I do as well, not caring for whether something's from Northern or Southern Ireland, "both" countries are called the same thing, they're attatched to each other, I consider it one country.

You didn't offend me at all, just I'm too stubborn to change things like that. Snow Patrol are on the list already, I'm pretty sure of it.
It's not a list of "best British bands", it's a list of up & coming bands from the British Isles, it's not my fault that Ireland had a fight and had to split into two (not that I know much about Irish history, but I know it's something to do with religion). I may sort it all out at some point, may.

Incidentally, bilesy, i noticed you've ordered the Stories and Comets/Face for Radio split, which reminds me of posting Face for Radio on this threads predecessor..... you better post what the EPs like.... though I don't doubt it'll be good... BSM are a cool label...

It's 2 on pre-order and there's only 500, so I figured get in early, it's a bargain, will say what it's like, although it's not out for over a month yet. There's a new Jennifever one out soon as well.

EDIT: Face For Radio are in the second 1/2 of the list just under Buzz's band if you were wondering if it was up.

TNAS will always have a place in my heart.



BTW which mogwai CD is better: the one with 'youth' in the title, where Sine Wave is track 1,

or Happy Songs for Happy People?

Stupid foreigners eh!?
But you can't blame them for putting it in their own language at the moment as they're not that big in other countries like here.
Pyro, I'd go for 'Happy songs for happy people', but only cos I haven't heard anything off the other one.

heres something random............i went to the paper shop and bought the NME today, and flicked through it as i waited for a mate in town........so he arrived, and we walked down the street and two liver lads came up to us and the asain guy asked me if i had a light, so i (nme in hand) search through my basg for my lighter, and he said...in in that this week, page fourteen.....oooh right i said......show me then....so his mate took it from me, found the page interview and held it up next to his mates face and true enough he had a full page to himself..........then i recognised the lead singer of the zuton's and mr zuton himself and told him my mate had supported them with his band 'silversuit' a little while ago.....dammit, i should have asked him for a guest list place for thier gig earlier....

and thats just an insight into my wonderful life.

I think he didnt want a light really but did in fact want to promo since you had that NME ;)


Cool story...

Mogwai's awesome! I was fortunate enough to see them live a while ago. I hope they come back soon.

The Zutons, ooooooooooooh. Sorry, don't mean to destroy your battleship, but who?! No, only kidding, I know who they are, but I'm really not suprised you didn't recognise them, quite cool to say you've bumped into famous people on the street, although it seems a bit sus that he asked the person with the magazine he just happened to be in for a light.
When he said "I'm in that this week", you should've replied with, "that's nice" or something acting completely uninterested. It's well funny watching famous people's faces drop when you don't honestly care who they are, actually, it's funny watching anyone's face drop with disappointment.

Mint, would've taken shot-put bollocks to shoot someone down like that but it'd be well funny....

Cool story tho Thom, I'm liking the Zutons at the mo as well so woulda been a bit off balance to just bump into them (!) I have a worrying tendency to get attached to cheesy derivative pop-rock :(

Talking of bollocks for a second. There's this Shaolin monk called Zhang Xiao Ju who can take kicks to the nuts and not move. It's amazingly f*cked up.
