I'm in Broomhall (the less dodgy bit i'd like to think). Yeah i've tried to cut my facebook groups down to ones that aren't just completely pointless, without much luck really.

Did you make it to the hundred reasons leadmill gig last wednesday? Was a good a night, didn't think too much of the support though.

yes i did, and i agree, second ones especially-singer doing the whole faux american accent thing.
Hundred Reasons were pretty good, theyre tight as hell these days-although sad they didnt play breathe again. I was wearing a hundred reasons shirt with the kill your own hologram in red thing and a million dead hoodie, and i have blonde hair on the slight chance that that rings a bell!
Been to these:

haha yeah the fake american accent made even more hilarious by the fact he actually had a thick welsh accent!
erm, there was a blonde guy next to me but he sounded like a northener, hope you enjoyed yourself anyhow.

Er...hello. Is this thing on? *tap tap* *feedback whine*

I'm James, I'm 25 and from Taunton in Somerset...aka the backside of beyond. I play bass guitar and sing, although have difficulty doing both at the same time (or seperately, come to think of it). I should be in a band but I'm not. Instead I spend my time listening to and watching other people doing what I would do if I wasn't a lazy fucker. Some of my favourite bands include Smashing Pumpkins, Sahara Hotnights, Thea Gilmore, Kent, New Order, Depeche Mode, Rammstein, Echobelly, Sarah McLachlan, Megadeth, Elastica, Hundred Reasons, Doves, Ladytron, I Love You Baby!, The Charlatans, The All Janet, The Soundtrack Of Our Lives, Idlewild, Isolation Years, Lene Marlin, The Goo Goo Dolls, JJ72, Placebo, Muse, The Raveonettes (can you see a pattern yet? No? Good, I like it that way)...oh and I kinda like some band called Million Dead too, even though I arrived a bit late on the scene, and only managed to catch them live once (Bristol Louisiana 16-09-05 - absolutely blistering gig, where Frank proved that there is no need for a microphone...just shout louder). Oh yeah and I only have Harmony No Harmony. At first I wasn't so keen on the "post harcore" sound, but Frank's lyrics kept me listening, until eventually my amoeba of musical taste expanded and absorbed another genre. I lurked a bit on the MD forum, but didn't see much point in joining as everything was about to come crashing to an end. So then I found Frank's acoustic stuff, and as always the lyrics are superb...I'm already a fan of shouty loud acoustic music so I found it much easier to love. If he didn't make proper records etc he'd be the world's greatest busker.

These are two great artists/bands that I'll probably plug the hell out of if I don't see people mentioning them on the board, so have yourself a listen now...I don't want to end up as a fucking spambot, but can't help myself sometimes. The first one is a passionate shouty folky acousticy solo artist called Zoe Konez...she's fucking amazing live (and has a Z at both ends of her name...how cool is that?)...so much energy, and a brilliant guitarist...she also plays electric in a couple of bands (The Turner Prize and Badgers Are English Bears) who I think would appeal to MD fans if anyone's allowed to be one of those anymore.

Oh yeah, and Frank, if you're ever in Hastings and looking for a gig, you're welcome to play Zoe's "Listen" Acoustic Night at The Rooms. Or just tour with her. Yeah, that'd be good. Anyway...

The second is another must-see live, especially if you like distorted guitars, screaming, harmonies, finger-bleeding fretwork (but never wanking), psychedelia...they hate comparisons, but if you like Pumpkins, Pixies, Sonic Youth, Nirvana...that sort of stuff, you'll know where they're coming from.

So then, that's an introduction to me. And other people. And if you think that was long, you should see my...




...goodbyes.
