good thread for me to remind people that my heroes and (partly) pals Tellison are playing a show at the lexington with the reformed Maple State in April <3
Gonna sees them in aldershot
The Maple State were such a cool band. Joanna’s an absolute banger. I bet they were a good gateway band for a lot of people. They were completely different to other local bands getting press at the time. I probably wouldn’t have listened to, say, Dartz or Meneguar without them.
These guys were around at the same sort of time and were fucking incredible - https://m.soundcloud.com/siryessir/ok
Shit i didn’t know about the guys you just posted, on it now. Thank you!
Yes - I heard Dartz through Tellison, and Maple State sort of as a part of all of that. Just so good and so fun.
This track remains a favourite of mine:
Everyone is talented in their own way
I used to love Tellison but haven’t listened to them in years. But I’m rectifying that as I type.
Hope Fading Nightly is… just kind of unbelievable in how much they upped their game
Start with this
and then cry a bit to this
and if you haven’t heard Wages of Fear then hit this:
xylo’s friends with that guy from Busted!
naw not friends. did a song with him once, but that was him doing us a favour. Tellison, the two singers were in a band with me, and then one of them was briefly in ANOTHER band with me.
ah my bad.
Was sure you had some bigwig connections
i do to an extent but i am sparing about talking about em on here for a myriad of reasons. tell me about YOUR talented pals bam <3
my good friends Si and Dave aka the Hairy Bikers
could you ask them to tone it down a bit please?
Got a couple of mates who write/publish very good and funny poetry, some in various brilliant bands and one who is the singer in a successful and fairly well known indie band.
how come I don’t know anybody famous or successful?
full disclosure: i have never met them
they seem to love life though, hard to knock that
