Re: Comet Gain

New York was great. It was insane seeing them play a sold-out show to 500+ people. I was very proud of them!

Re: girl groups

I was just watching the tragically shortened DVD of the Peter Cook & Dudley Moore show Not only but also... when right at the start of "Episode" 4 up pops the girl group Goldie and the Gingerbreads singing the original version of 'Can't You Hear My Heart Beat'. Needless to say it was ace. Well worth...

Re: McCarthy

My friend Jason and I put them on at the Jericho Tavern in Oxford, around the time the McCarthy at War EP was out. They were jangle tastic and I seem to remember the singer played a Vox Teardrop guitar. Ameilia Fletcher ran up to my friend in Our Price, where she worked, and told him that she was ex...

Re: Flying Nun

what you're referring to is more accurately referred to as 'the dunedin sound', flying nun also put out (very significant) records by bailter space, the dead c, headless chickens, garageland, the d4, the 3d's, amongst others and they can't really be described as 'indiepop', not really be anyone's i...

Re: Flying Nun

The Able Tasmans played the Thursday before last! For the first time in maybe ten years! The show was listed only as "Humphreys and Keen + The Puddle", so it was a brilliant surprise. They did "What was that thing?", "Grey Lynn", "Hold me 1", "Angry martyr" and "The theory of continual disappointme...

Re: Felt/Denim/Go Kart Mozart

Stains On A Decade is a compilation of the singles. I do agree it is a bit strange, though, taking tracks from various EPs and singles seemingly at random. But I like it. There were some compilations released back in the 80s as well - one called Goldmine Trash which includes most of the mega hits f...

Happenstance was the club Steve Drew and Ben Clancy did. Scene of CG#1's last and CG#2's first shows. I have a tiny picture of that last show somewhere. We all look quite jolly considering!

Good grief. I'd forgotten about Syndrome! The first time I went I saw Lawrence sat on the floor with a plastic bag. That was my first night out in London too.

Another one of my favorite places is Giant Robot ( http://www.grny.net/ ), also in the East Village. It is an art gallery / store that has consistently amazing art and wonderful things I don't need but buy anyway. Right down the street is Fabulous Fanny's ( http://store.fabulousfannys.com ), this wo...

Eyes front: this is a Kinks thread! I love all of those little vignettes. My song of the moment is Two Sisters , which starts off all Baroque Pop ends up feminist Neo-Realism. Or something! What tosh I talk! I love Village Green , but I think Arthur... and Something Else are my favourites. David Wat...

Re: Close To The Edge by Yes...

Before we started making sweeping (and, ironically, quite cynical) judgements about people based upon the music they listened to, seeing ourselves as better because we liked music that was distributed differently? This sort of self-flagellation seems to be getting commoner and commoner in the indie...
