liked the first two releases. But never really went back to them . Third one in a different league I think, brilliant. stands up to repeated listens well. Was supposed to see them in Cork Paddy's night.

“Small change” era waits for me is one of those(apologies for mentioning another band in the lankum thread)


yeah... sorry I did the same thing. I was thinking about a specific track too.

But there's music that I wouldn't listen to twice if it was played at the wrong part of the day. Like, there's music I've heard at 11pm, when I'm tired, and I was working late or something, and I'm semi checked out from consciousness and I've thought it was Scooby-Doo-HUUUUH? record-scratch amazing.

And then I've listened to that same track a couple of days later at the wrong time of the day, and wondered WTF I was thinking, and that it sounds painful and bad.

I guess my brain veers about a bit. But I'm convinced that there's specific times for specific music, and Lankum is not something I like a lot of the time but is something I like a lot late at night when I'm tired.

Or Lynched live... but live is weird. All rules are off. Also I didn't know who they were when I saw them live, so I wasn't expecting anything.

I’ve only really heard them when they were Lynched, saw them upstairs in Whelan’s doing a support slot and they were one of the best bands I’ve ever seen. I’ve actually been afraid to listen to the studio recordings in case it shatters the memory.

I think you'll enjoy the latest one. Lots of drones and extra instrumentation I reckon you'd dig. You'd probably enjoy Spud's interview back a few comments too.

I know the name. I was expecting more fiddley diddley stuff but they're a vocal group.....hmmm it's alright-ish.
I have 3 albums by the unthanks & they do something similar with English folk music. I like that more. I must be a west Brit.
