Six by Seven

I've searched and can't find a Six by Seven thread, which seems something of a travesty. One of the best live bands I ever saw, and damn they had a way with rage and misery.

They shoulda been huge, right? Or is the heroic failure kind of the point?

European Me was so good that it just eclipsed everything else they did for me.

Damn - it was the SixDotSeven in the what done it! No matter.

At one point I was a 6x7 completist but Olley has put out about 100000 records from his own weird mailing list over the last five years and I only have one of them

Love & Peace & Sympathy, the last 6x7 record proper, really grew on me though

I'll admit to falling by the wayside after The Way I Feel Today. Something about late autumn always sends me back to them.

Will give Love, Peace & Sympathy a go.

oh there have been loads of good things between TWIFT and L&P&S! I might have to resurrect my best-of

04 and If Symptoms Persist... both extremely worthwhile as albums for a start

Would happily take a best of!

They actually did a best-of but mine's way better. Will repost soon

o god okok - but i'll need to find where i wrote it down

imago, Friday, 11 January 2019 22:11 (two years ago) link

ok found it. this pre-dates Love & Peace & Sympathy and I'd definitely have something from that on here but this was the 80-minute behemoth I came up with

it doesn't have anything from the actual best-of on it, but really only So Close and Catch The Rain would have been on mine - they're a band of deep cuts

All I Want From You Is Love
European Me
Sometimes I Feel Like...
I'm Gonna Try
My Life Is An Accident
Bring Down The Government
Requiem For An Oil-Spill Seagull
Slab Square
Get A Real Tattoo
Oh! Dear
Overnight Success
Let's Throw Some Mud At The Wall
You Know I Feel Alright Now

Nice one, cheers. A few there I've not heard. Top 5? Mine are probably fairly canonical:

My Life is An Accident
Oh Dear
Get A Real Tattoo
Something Wild
One Easy Ship Away

First album is obv alltime and second one is vital Punk Fucken Rock, I have the next few but it seemed like diminishing returns and I bailed at some point and sitting here today have no particular desire to revisit those or check out the EIGHT MILLION albums since. Was it Bowlie Weekender one of youse gave me the "TWO AND A HALF DAYS IN LOVE WITH YOU" badge? I wore that shit for years then handed it off to some Pretty Young Thing who doesn't speak to me anymore. Still wearing that same coat btw and it instead has had a Life Without Buildings badge since whenever and I'm pretty happy with my life choices.
