Re: The Pains of Being Pure at Heart

Hi All, I realize this forum may no longer be active (or, more rightly) interest in The Pains might - er - be lacking. But I wanted to share a small trove of old PAINS merchandise (concert posters, t-shirts, and other ephemera) that may be of interest to those of you who may still lurk here. If anyo...

Re: The Pains of Being Pure at Heart

Just dropping by to let you know we have a few dates coming up in the part of the world where most of the people on this list live. Apologies if it seems unseemly, spammy or incites a reaction of "why do you occasionally post in the Pains thread on Anorak? You Jerk!" All valid critiques-- October 14...

Re: The Strict Rules of the Polite Society - Tonight!

If you are ever in Manila, this night at Cubao x is absolutely amazing. Heard a bunch of el records, felt, rocketship and so much more. Plus everyone involved is epically lovely!

Re: The Pains of Being Pure at Heart

Hi, First off, it's totally fine if people want to write on the thread that we're shit. That's the whole point of forums like this, to discuss the various "shitness" or "not-shitness" of indiepop bands with other like minded folks around the world. And while I try to use the 35 seconds that anyone c...

Dearest Anoraxics, It's been a while, how goes it? While a few of you we saw at NYCPOPFEST (goodness, we were bad at Cake Shop) and sporadically in London, Berlin (Anders) and possibly Glasgow (we also played an incredibly terrible show there, I hope Collin or Pat Nevin wasn't in attendance), I thou...

Dream Diary

Is there really no Dream Diary thread on Anorak? They are an excellent, pristine and sincere indiepop band from Brooklyn that seems more in keeping with late 80s Creation and Sarah than what your prejudice might presume based on their place of residence. http://www.myspace.com/dreamdiarylovesyou The...
