Are you a fan? Have you heard their new stuff? Seen them live a couple of nights ago and it was one of the best gigs I've ever seen!

Personally, and I know this wasn't directed at me, but I think they peaked with Gentlemen and have been kind of up and down since then...mostly down.

A band I always meant to spend more time with but never did.
Shows? All of em.

Yeah I think Gentleman was the best of the album's they made in the 90's, however I think there new album is just as good in places.

Same as Frank, here. They had a great single in the early 90s played on mainly college radio stations here in the states, called "My Curse". Really liked that one, but didn't dig into them any deeper.

Will check it out. They definitely had a bad patch before they broke up, and I have not been racing to hear this album, but will check it out.

A friend of mine is a lifelong fan. He explained it to me as "They're my Waterboys". I still know very little about them.
