hmm don’t love this
Not sure where’s best to post this
But just gutted to hear about the passing of Mike Noga
Key member of the Drones best output
Just an all round nice bloke as well, so sad
Very sad news. Only 43, no age at all. Haven’t ever listened to his solo stuff much but what I have is good and I fucking love those Drones albums. Looks like he had a new one due to release soon produced by Alan Sparhawk from Low.
I mean, Tropical Fuck Storm are just fucking GREAT aren’t they?
Excellent emoji work
i’m somewhere between it sounds pretty good and kind of more of the same, hopefully it’ll be a grower though
New album out 20 August.
EDIT: D’oh… Just saw ericVII mentioned this in his post.
I love TFS but this is not my favourite of theirs
wow, braindrops is a lot better than i remembered. dunno why i bounced off it so hard. in a proper drones, gareth, TFS mood now.
I need to get stuck back into them and listen to the albums all over again. I have a feeling I thought Braindrops was more consistent but maybe lacked the absolute best stuff
Very underrated album. Think I prefer it to the debut.
I had a 6 months TFS/Drones bender at the end of last year. Fucking fantastic, all of it.
Increasingly of the opinion that these guys have made the best guitar music of the last 5 years.
My daughter loves them too. Thinks they’re called Tropical Fun Storm. Might be an interesting conversation at some point over the next 18 months.
The guitar tone and the lyrics are delectable to me. Really sort of intensely sensory.
Yeah - the walls of background noise they seem to be leaning into as well just hit all the right buttons for me. Plus they seem to be angry about all the things that I’m angry about and willing to rant eloquently about them over music.
