The one ive got has a weird title, "f#0a" or something like that, has a black cover. Its really good; "lift your skinny fists" is excellent too. I wasn't aware they had split up though

"lift your skinny fists like antennas to heaven" has Storm on it, and is my favourite album. The way I understand it is GSY!BE are on hiatus while some of the members concentrate on the Silver Mount Zion project. Their albums are well worth checking out, too.

I'd say that Slow Riot For Zero Kanada was the best work ever. (the one with the jewish writing on the front + a molotov cocktail inside).

and for me, the first LP (Fainfinityfitivver) is the best LP...after that they started to get far too anal...

buy both on amazon for buttons ;

Well said that man, that would be my favourite by a long way. It helped me get through some tough essay writing sessions a year or two ago

Mum are excellent. I missed them playing Glasgow last April, but made up for it the next day by seeing Explosions in the Sky at Tramway.

Just rubbing the salt in deeper Maxi........ :D

I'd say mum were more like boards of canada than anything...

"twee electronica" (but lovely, not a "bad twee")...

a bit like matmos too, without the icelandic vocals (think bjork on her "girliest" of songs...)

Mum are fantastic, but bugger all like GSY!BE. They have two albums out, the first is light but eery, the second considerably darker. Yeah, more like Sigur Ros, but less cloying.

Mono were brilliant supporting Einsturzende Neubauten a year or so ago. Dirty Three are superb too, especially Whatever You Love, You Are.

Mum - a strange but nice blend of Boards of Canada, Bjork with Matos, Sigur Ros and Four Tet. Very atmospheric in an Icelandic sort of way....

f#a#~ - great stuff' date=' wasn't aware of them having split up either though.[/quote']

According to their brainwashed.com website they're on extended hiatus and haven't disbanded. So no clue at all to the potential for new material or tours any time soon.

Shit, did anyone else hear anything?

Sorry min, I totally skipped past your post without noticing - too eager to add my own ten pence worth.

That sounds like an apt description for the excellent M83.
