Brilliant lyrics, fantastic textures, played by a band that was tighter than tight.
I saw them at The Vic in the late 90s.
Bought my wife a sweatshirt which came with the privilege of meeting the band.
Spent 45 minutes talking to Cy, Jamie, & Rupert. (Plus, a couple minutes with Dan.)
My band covered 8 or 10 of their songs over the years.
I've been a big fan since I bought Shuttered Rooms. (That album has Red Skies At Night on it.)
Pretty sure I have all their albums except the one they released last year.
the only other album I have of theirs. Well, besides their first live album....... React(?)... I think it was called. Love the band, just never got around to getting their releases after Reach The Beach. Multiple reasons mainly due to my work travel.
Lost all my albums in a flood. Major hurt that was...... 90% of them were European virgin vinyl too. Yeah, I went nuts rebuying all my favorites while I was there.
