Listened to half of the first song and yeah that's not too bad. Is it all instrumental?

Absolutely ace band. They've got the biggest live sound you've ever heard. Totally blew me away when I saw them. I don't think their recordings really don't do them justice when you hear how immense they are live.
Regards,

Jim

the second album, 'one time for all time' is better than the first.

went to see them expecting big things, got well big things all over my face. BUT, they did play for fucking ages and i was a bit tired by the end. nice band though, visuals were fucking top notch as well. someone said they're like youth movie soundtrack strategies, but i've not heard them so i don't know.

An absolutely top band, almost make up for BMTH and The Arctic Oh God They're Awfuls also having sprouted from Sheffield. Newest album has some vocals on, didn't really have any impact on the music oddly enough. Fall of Math will probably remain one of my most listened to albums forever.

Have they gigged near anyone recently? They used to play somewhere in Sheffield at least a few times a year, but I haven't heard or seen anything from them in ages.

The Cure played a 3 hour set that looked amazing the other night. They'd maybe be one of the bands I'd most like to see.

As for 65DOS, they're one of those bands I've always thought that I probably really would like, but I've never really had any desire to listen to them. Even now, reading this, I know I should but I won't.

Seen them a couple of times, and every time I'm really impressed for half the set, and then I get a bit tired of it all. I think i don't have enough patience. They do an amazing remix of SPooks the Horse by Youthmovies, it's much better than the original. I'm not sold on the whole visuals thing either...
