power pop * punk * emo * indie rock * shoegazer
Knowing nothing about this band (and only vaguely remembering the name) -- if this disk of demos and b-sides is any indication of the quality of their *released* material, I've been missing out!
Absolutely you have! Dive into their third and fourth albums, "Holy Bible" and a "Design for Life" and go from there.
Hello, excellent blog I've recently rediscovered after a few years being away. So much I missed out on. If I could make a request, is there any way you can repost all of the I-Rails material that you have? I recently discovered some of their songs, and would love to get a hold of it when you get the chance. Thanks much!
Will try to refresh the I-Rails links soon.
I absolutely adore some Manics stuff, but find myself really cold on others. In this matter, I find their strengths are as an album band, and thus their b-sides, while occasionally interesting, are more miss than hit. But having said that, I've got the Lipstick Traces b-sides and covers collection, and the b-sides are almost uniformly better than than the covers, except for the McCarthy one. If you can snare a second hand copy of the Simon Price biography 'Everything' (which goes up to This Is My Truth), you must, an amazing story.
