Re: Dutch Uncles

I wouldn't mind seeing them live to see what all the fuss is about as their album leaves me cold. They make me wish Clor were still around. The bloke from Clor formed a new act called Barringtone. Saw them once a while back and they were 1) really good and 2) basically the same thing. Not a lot has...

Re: Dutch Uncles

Love them. The bass player is responsible for all the music, and he's just made a standalone semi-classical work which is well worth 20 minutes of your time. It's embedded in this interview:

Re: Mares nest dvd out now!!

Amusingly, I think a lot of people who weren't at the Bumming Shed still think that we're all perpetrating an elaborate hoax by saying that the DVD is out!

Re: Public Service Broadcasting

I like them but wonder if they're something of a one-trick pony. I think they'll have to think of a new "concept" for album two.

Has there really been anyone slating it? I've just become aware of what you're doing and think it's nothing but excellent.

Saw them in Bristol tonight and they were fantastic. Every date this week has been sold out - people are finally starting to pay attention!

Field Music

Surprised there hasn't been a Field Music thread on here yet, unless it's a long way down. I could imagine them appealing to - well, most people on here actually. Not as manic as Cardiacs but certainly as unique. Their new album's out on Monday and I can't wait... They're pretty prolific too for a b...

I love it. Nigel Blackwell is more of an angry man than a comedy songwriter, so this is how it sometimes comes out...
