HWC are my favourite I think. The first album is just 20 or so minutes of chaos and the secons album is that but with actual tunes

LIKE A PRIEST IN SHACKLES BUILDING BOMBS OUT OF BIBLES

(I think)

I probably need to give it like 7 listens in reasonable succession. I felt Jordan was the more likely of either vocalist to do better on his own, despite loving NB. I really liked the Past Lives album and Nick is a superb musician. Never clicked with the Locust, though

I’ve only heard the Past Lives album a couple of times myself, that didn’t really click but its definitely due a re-listen. I’m not keen on The Locust at all really either myself, much prefer the HWC stuff

They were just the fucking best band ever. Sadly I never caught them on peak form due to members having throat issues (I mean, obviously) but I can’t think of any other group in my lifetime where I’ve become so so SO obsessed with the lyrics, reading them along with the songs into the early hours of the morning until I had them down. And they were always the wildest shit I’d ever seen.

AND THEN THE SONGS RULED AS WELL.

Not much to add except that there’s never quite been another band like them.

Yeah they were my first 'proper’gig , Leeds Cockpit 2007. You could tell they were knackered and ill and I think they were at each other’s throats personality wise too. Still a good show but what I would have given to see them in their prime.

Saw Jaguar Love later on and there was about 15 people there. Johnny signed a CD and was chatty though
