Constantines. Absolute choon;
Cutting Pink With Knives
That’s another great shout. I listened to Danse Macabre a hell of a lot. I can’t say it was ever one of my favourite ever albums or anything, but it was one that didn’t seem to get boring. Afterwards I listened to Blank-Wave Arcade (wrong order I know) and it was good but wasn’t quite as compelling. Then I forgot all about them.
Looked them up on Spotify and it seems they had a new album out last year. Who’d have though tit? I guess I’ll have to check out iout now.
Well I can safely say I’ve not thought about them in years, or indeed at all. But I’m really pleased this is a genuine one and that a band really exists with that name.
Slightly less pleased a few seconds into the first song I found on Spotify.
thought about them 5 days ago actually
They were supporting the Dum Dums at King Tuts in Glasgow late 2000, which was one of my earliest gigs, never heard of them again after - think they’ll be the least thought of act that I’ve heard of in this thread at least.
The UK’s answer to Outkast, Big Brovaz
Thought about them the other day. Might put on that album this week. Can barely remember it but I do remember it being really good and a bit before its time
Yep, I typically listen to loads of Midlake every autumn (started a bit early this year earlier today - summer definitely feels like it’s on its way out…).
Found a good “Midlake: where are they now?” article from last year:
Can’t believe Antiphon was released nearly 7 years ago.
The good news is that another album might still be on the cards.
Still hammer their 1st record on a regular basis
Drugstore. First album and singles were magical.
American Analog Set
The Little Ones
Darkstar (either the hyperdubby one or the proggy one)
