Lol Razz yes, they are Razz The lack of scots is explained by the fact that it's impossible to sing in your own accent without sounding like a proclaimer Razz

Well, they had their times... don't know.. it's like with Coldplay. The first album - amacing, second - great and then just a huge landslide. Don't know why. The new one sounds like they've used everything they could from The Beatles.... ;-)

I used to think that, but then i moved away from Liverpool and started to realise that they were actually brilliant. I do think they are still slightly over-rated though. When they're bad they're awful but when they are good they are just the best band ever.

This is going OFF TOPIC...

...and I'm seriously considering cracking down on it. Also I know Guy has seen this thread, so it might be better if it carried on appreciating him, and not appreciating, or dis-appreciating The Beatles. I don't want to seem like I am lecturing or laying down the law, as I am as guilty as anyone, but I do feel that we don't half fly off at tangents sometimes, and it makes it difficult for members to find information.

Now.

Isn't Guy Garvey very good?

Sorry about that. Embarassed

Guy is indeed a genius.

Easily the best lyricist this country has seen in ages.
Of his contemporaries as a singer, only Thom Yorke springs to mind as being worthy to lace Guy's boots.
Interesting guitar style an'all. Smile
