Got into them just beyond their peak when they did a brilliant sunset set at Leeds. Immediately questioned why I’d let the ‘cheeky britpop boys’ marketing put me off previously. Cracking band.

Was bang into them at the end of 1994 when I taped them in session on Mark Radcliffe - played that tape to death. Was a little disappointed with I Should Coco when it eventually did come out though as wasn’t all that impressed with the songs I hadn’t heard. Got pretty damn sick of Alright by the end of 1995 and, Going Out aside, had kinda gone off them by the time the second album came out.

That said - listened to the 25th anniversary album that just came out recently and loved it and Gaz Coombes solo stuff (even Danny Goffey’s too) is really good.

A very solid 3/5 overall.

The first two albums were so good it’s a 4. After that it all goes a bit McNulty hand wobble

The chord shapes on the song Moving are very satisfying to play.

Good solid 3/5. Probably would give them a slightly generous 7, but a 4/5 feels like too much.

Solid 3/5. Average, fun band with a knack for writing average, fun indie music. See also - Ash.

Love 'em. Had them down as just another Britpop band but a mate recommended In It For The Money and I was completely won over. Just really well done guitar music with a slightly strange sense of humour.

It’s a 4 (four) out of five (5) from me.

First 3 albums are incredible with the usual diminishing returns thereafter.

Saw them in an absolutely rammed tent at T In The Park at Hamilton just after Alright had been released. Remember the look of disbelief on Gaz Coombes face when he saw how many people had turned up to see them. They launched into the first song and the place went MENTAAAAALLLLL.
One of the best gig experiences I’ve ever had.

Gaz Coombes’ solo stuff is really good too.

I think the title track from In It For The Money is the best song they’ve made.

Overdid it with I should Coco when it came out and tired of them. There are great songs on ‘in it for the money’ but I’ve never really enjoyed it as an album. Not bothered with any of their other albums but I love Gaz coombes’ matador, it is a fucking brilliant album.

Has anyone mentioned how Spielberg was going to make a monkees style TV show with them? Mad.

It’s a big 4 from me btw. First 3 records are really good, less so after but still moments of greatness. Seen them a few times and they’re the absolutely ideal 7 or 8pm festival band when you want something you know every word to and everyone’s having a load of fun.

Also, I think if I had a theme tune that played whenever I walked into a room it would be this

Never knowingly ever heard of them. Always get them and Super Furry Animals mixed up in my head despite knowing nothing about either of them.

They’re on the list of things that don’t exist.
