Heh, reminds me of Child Pornography, who released an album called 'The Beatles'.

It's quite a catchy tune! And I like how it's dead short. But I'm not pegging them as a band to watch or anything. It's probably a fluke. They stink of the Industry.

is that the rah rah rah one? i've heard two songs. i thought the first 30 seconds of one were alright, then i lost interest. the other tune didn't pick it up again, i'm afraid.

i'm reliably informed that they're 'the new menswear' in terms of their industry contacts and how they're getting so much press, so looks like you've got that bit nailed on

incidentally, i liked menswear

Soemone from menswe@r was at the Star and Garter when I was DJing on New Years Eve. He wasn't Johnny Dean. I played Daydreamer at about 3am to a surpisingly good reception.

brother, the band that give the vaccines a thin patina of alrightness



it's a bit like watching a wound fester, their promo pics suggest a band that need more bran in their diet

Image

they describe their music as 'gritpop' (presumably in the sense that's it's profoundly irritating)

it's sort of embarrassing that a man called tim jonze had to make me aware of them by telling me, the reader, how bad they were and that I then went and checked just how bad they were and they really are as bad as mr jonze says they are, probably worse

http://www.guardian.co.uk/music/2011/ja ... asis-jonze

that links worth a click just to see the band doing a really bad impersonation of the inbetweeners in yet another gloriously naff promo pic

paul lester on the other hand gets himself into a right muddle while attempting to fill copy here and sound enthusiastic (it's a living, I suppose): http://www.guardian.co.uk/music/2010/oc ... nd-brother

as you're all young and up with the latest trends I'm sure brother is old news but I'm rather 'delighted' to have them wafted under my nose so I can exclaim, 'gor blimey, mister, my eyes are burning, what an eggy guff!' and laugh in a vigorous but ultimately empty way

Many years ago -

- standing outside a venue in Northampton. A guy sidled up and said:

"What time are Serious Thrush" playing !!

Fine work.

I always wanted to call a band Various Artists, but that question mark is just taking the piss.

the bass player from my old school band suggested we name ourselves ...And Many More so we could go on compilation albums

in the end we called ourselves Nervosa... and later Auto-Da-Fe, all at his suggestion

it was only when he suggested we call ourselves Dreschd that it finally occurred to me we should really stop letting him pick the names

so we split up and i joined a band called Fuzz-Wah

THE END

It's not just cos I personally dislike the band that I hugely dislike the name, it's cos it's a fucking terrible name. Lookimakemusic. Surely, even people who like them (which seems to be everyone round these parts) must've notice it's a fucking shit name for a band.

EDIT
Does that sound like I dislike them as people? I didn't mean that, I don't even know them.
I am struck speechless by the nape of your neck.

I quite like what I've heard of them on that internet, but yeah, I've often thought I can't stand the name.

Speaking of good band/bad name combos, have we mentioned Evans The Death? I bloody love Evans The Death. But even the members of Evans The Death think it's a bad name.
