Does anybody else think the Doves (elbow's bezzy mates) are one of the best bands ever? Smile

Nope.

They're OK. I've got all the albums but I don't play them too much.

They alllways appear on websites as similar to Elbow. That's all I can say! I reckon my mate will get some eventually and I'll listen then Smile

I bought 'Lost Souls' in a Woollies remainder bin mainly because of the Elbow comparisons, but was a bit disappointed (in fact, it's on my list of CDs to bung on Ebay).

They're not bad (and as a rockier band than Elbow they're certainly better than the likes of Snow Patrol) but nothing I've heard of theirs really seems to stand out that much. Perhaps I need to give them a few more listens.

Doves are good but some of their tracks are skippable. They don't have the same beauty as Elbow sadly but still another good Manc band. 'Words', 'The Cedar Room', 'Caught By The River' and 'Black And White Town' are my favourites.

Fair enough.

Their last myspace blog mentioned there being two September dates, so there may be a northern date yet...

...but I have a London ticket anyway.

I only remember one time, it was a quite while ago when he played one Doves Demo which reminded me a lot on "You know you know" by the Mahavishnu Orchestra. Haven't noticed any more new Doves Demos and I can't remember missing one show of Guy...
But he played older tracks a few times Smile

Are you talking about this "Demo heaven" thingy when Guy talked to Jimi Goodwin? Smile They played a demo which Jimi had recorded in his kitchen or something if I don't remember it wrong....

Yeah, he's been playing Sea Song a couple of times and I think he played Caught By The River and The Man Who Told Everything not long ago.....Always a nice surprise to hear some Doves tunes on the radio Smile

Yea, I think it was that one. And Jimi was singing a jingle for the "Demo Heaven" Very Happy
