they can't play anymore concerts. there was an article here on UG a long time ago about an illness/disease/whatever that craig has, and large groups of people, stress, etc make him go a bit bananas. look up the article if you can, it's interesting.

I love the Vines. Highly Evolved is an amazing album. Winning days was not as good though. I will be definitely buying the new album as soon as its out.

That's when you know you found somebody special. When you can just shut the f*ck up for a minute, and comfortably share silence.

Only song i've liked was 'winning days'. Though the video for 'Ride' is quite good as well. I hated everything that i heard from the first album with a passion.

Have you seen the video at the MTV awards when the play just after the Hives? He seemed a little crazy then.

I like The Vines, they have a good mix of faster and slower songs. They're cover of Paint it Black by the Rolling Stones is great. I might buy their new album.

I really liked that song "Get Free" despite that low-budget-looking video. And I liked "Ride" because of those damn iPod commercials.

I saw them live on Dave Letterman once. That lead singer, he is either a) a weirdo b) a druggie c) pretentious or d) trying hard. But it looked like a combo of A & B to me. I'm sure falling around during a performance singly badly and knocking stuff over seems like a good idea when your f'ed up.

They're not my thing at all, tbh... Even their singles (which according to some of my friends who loved them were their best tracks) sort of grated. I don't like the guy's voice, and their riffs kind of bore me. In all honesty, I only listened to their first album once through before giving it away... Maybe they're just one of those bands that grows on you.

I don't really like the singles too much at all. Try listening to the slower melodic tracks and the harmonies, it's what i great about The Vines and why some people dont understand them.

Aspergers + Alcohol = No differance.

Aspergers is a form of autism. Basicly it's communication and social interaction problems. It's also proven that people with Aspergers have an above average IQ. Albert Einstein, Bill Gates and many more people have Aspergers, things like alcohol dont affect their behavior any differantly then acholhol and any else.

Highly Evolved is great, but I really, really have to be in the mood to listen to it.
And yet, to me, what is this quintessence of dust? Man delights not me: no, nor woman neither... nor women neither.

I'm gonna post again.

The Vines were one of the bands that I first started listening to when I was getting into music, so I will always like them, or at least have that connection to them. I don't like there music as much as I used to, but everyone once in a while I like listening to them to remember how it was when I first started getting into music.

I never bought an album, but i like the singles.


There are some real gems on Highly Evolved and Winnings Days that you should check out.

The new album isnt anywhere near as good as those two, but thats normally the case.

I love 'em. Always liked them, even with his antics.

Some might say he is average, but he can make some real good music.

Example

It's a shame Patrick left, but it was his choice, and he couldn't take it anymore after what happened at Annandale.

Their most recent record is great. Some catchy songs.

I really got into them when i was younged with highly evolved, got winning days and that wasnt so bad, no way as good as HE but still some goond songs on it, got Vision Valley and thought it was tripe, only listened to it a couple of times.
