What a fortunate position to be in. Far better to 'discover' an old band and have the whole back catalogue to indulge in than hear an album by a new band and then have to wait 2 years for the disappointing follow up.

I was dragged kicking and screaming to see TFC in Wolverhampton a few years ago, I really didn't want to go, I'd been put off by a stupid NME cover in the early 90s (I think Norman had his trousers down!) and I never gave them a chance. That NME cover had made me think they were part of the Pop Will Eat Itself, Wonder Stuff thing that I didn't like. Anyway, suffice to say the gig changed my mind about them. See them live first, then start buying the records.

......and don't listen to people who tell you Thirteen is no good.

indeed... i only discovered them about 3 years or so back, with howdy & then a top leeds festival show. TFC arrived in my life at the same time that the strokes, white stripes etc were getting famous - i know which i prefer. and the man's right about thirteen, it's a great album...

13 is bland, TFC-lite. Never liked it.

The flat and muddy sound mix doesn't help much either.

bah. it's up there with bandwagonesque, though obviously neither of them are all the way up there with grand prix / howdy. fair enough comment about the mix, but there's some cracking songs on there.

Oops, my above comment makes it look like I agree with the Guesty, which is wrong. There's plenty of gems on 13, it just feels like you've got to peer through the mirky mix to find them.

i could go for weeks without even a sniff of, erm, fannies. :cry:

some weeks though, I get to take out a hard stiff one, slide it in and twiddle the knobs for a bit until it makes me feel good. :D

I have all their albums, though I rarely listen to them these days - can't remember the last time I did, in fact. This is normal, surely?

I listen roughly every 10 days or so. I usually go for Howdy or GP or 13. If I have a lot of albums by a band I tend to listen to their most recent effort most often.
