Girls

Recommended Posts

This band have an un-google-able first album/name combination (despite rating considerably high in the search listing), a shit band name, retro stylings, and a wikipedia article humorously suggesting that their frontman is a member of a Christian-based cult.

On principle I hate their marketing ploy, but they do the Elvis Costello meets fuzz-pop thing really well. I recommend a sly download. They're asking for it.

They are also all naturists. I saw it in one of the tabloids months ago. There's loads of pictures of them all naked on the intornetz. (Also in the tabloids but they put fuzzy boxes over their fuzzy boxes)

I like their name! Also really like the album (though it is pretty overhyped but that's not their fault). And the songwriter in the band WAS a member of a cult!

I have a feeling I'm talking about a completely different band to everyone else. The band I'm talking about are a girl band, like Girls Aloud or some shit.

That story is mad.

The more I think about this, the more I am beginning to think that I read it in the Sunday Sport and it probably isn't true.

the album is ok. the last half of helhole ratrace is still probably my favourite piece though. i wish everything else sounded that epic.

apparently the guy was in the children of god cult? that ain't so epic.

What a shite title

I kinda like what they've done with it - if you have a s/t debut then people will end up referring to it as "the (band name) album" anyway.

Another good thing about this band - the album artwork features photographs of hot girls. Which is a lot better than bearded indie rock types as per usual...

does it have the previously mentioned hot girls?

Yeah, but there's also a man using another man's Johnson as a microphone. So if you can handle a bit of that, it's buried on pitchfork somewhere...

I dismissed them initially as just another No Age-a-like on pitchfork. Might check them out a bit further.

nothing like No Age at all!!! Maybe some aesthetics (self-recording, two piece, etc...), but certainly not musically!

Yeah, I think it was more because there's been a whole raft of "fuzzy, noisy duos" recently, so I think I'd just (wrongly) lumped them in the same lot.

GIRLS is a 4-piece I think. I can't get into them on record, but they might be one of those bands that I need to listen a few times before they click with me.

As a side-note, I loved being recommended both GIRLS and Women by last.fm, it was as if the internet was telling me I needed a girlfriend, somehow. Yes, I'm a big geek.

There are two of them, they have a live drummer and second guitarist though.

That would explain a lot. The only times I've heard them was a live video and of course, that music video.

Yep, i've got such cool stories.
