Hmm. Very much like the Fall. Not bad.

Half this album sounds like Skinned Teen WTF! These guys have totally missed my radar until now but I think I really like this

good band but let's be honest, this thread would not exist if not for DFA endorsement

i'm loving this but it's so odd and funny them being associated with DFA. there's osmethign about them that reminds me of ikara colt, a lot better. anyone remember the No Name "scene"? Yeh these dudes could have slipped right in.

Good in small doses, tedious over the course of a full album.

One way to improve the album-listening experience is to shout questions back at the stereo, so it's like:

Hamworthy Sports and Leisure Center
WHAT IS THAT??
is a sports and leisure center
WHAT DID YOU SAY IT WAS CALLED?
Hamworthy Sports and Leisure Center
IS THAT A HOSPITAL OR SOMETHING?
is a sports and leisure center
OH, OKAY

The Youtube comments for their videos are hilarious- I don't know how something this innocuous can provoke SEETHING VISCERAL HATRED in so many people, but it does. IT ARE NOT REAL MUSICS, THEY JUST RIP OF THE WHIT STRIEPS

Hobnail boots!
BOOTS? WHERE?
On the escalator!
THAT'S A TERRIBLE PLACE FOR HOBNAIL BOOTS! NOISY!
Beeswax, beeswax
WELL THAT MIGHT MUFFLE THE SOUND A BIT
Down the radiator
THAT'S WHY YOU SHOULDN'T LEAVE WAX ON HOT THINGS!

Oh god, now you've got me doing it...

this just sounds like a not-terribly-good Fall to me

They have all the little signifiers for "arty" neatly lined up, paradoxically making them really trad.

Bodrick III, Tuesday, 22 January 2008 00:43 (nine years ago) Permalink

i like it

This is a good record.

Does it sound like the Fall? Keep meaning to listen to this on Spotify but have not yet done so.

curmudgeon, Monday, 13 February 2012 14:48 (five years ago) Permalink

i played this a lot over and over again at first. it seemed to make the humor of it grate a little. maybe better to let it sound surprising from time to time?

Just listening to it for the first time now -- great at four songs in so I'll take that as a sign.

Underrated band.

The record didn't hold up very well for me, but they were pretty entertaining live.
