Steady decline of my work whilst I write this review

Title:
Rating:
4 out of 5 stars
Heard this band for the first time at the V fest, was an awesome time and these guys really rocked hard on the channel 4 stage. Their explosive antics started the saturday off perfectly, and put many later acts to shame. The CD I have to say though nowhere near lives up to their live gig, but it is still a very well put together album – Steady Diet of Decline.
Having taken their name from an actual town called No Hope in the state of New Jersey – how unfortunate to come from there? You'd be a no-hoper before you even began – this manchester mob attacked the music scene to create a band that sounds a bit Queens of the stone age, and a bit Strokes at times (in a good way). Out of the whole album I have to say my favourite track has to be numero 6 – invaders. Probably the most QOTSAesque, but then I'm a queens fan.
The riffs are to say the least catchy, and to say the most bloody great. The rhythm bouncy and active, with plenty of crash. Whilst the lyrics and singing set off on a slightly discordant and depressed feel that lends weight to Jo Whiley's observation on their possibilities as the new Nirvana. If their success is as big as all that then remember you read it here first, that is unless you read Jo Whiley's reviews online. Yep here's the album cover again. And a final note to say that although the Album doesn't do so well a live performance is definitely 5 star.

Finally online and I find I dont have enough time

Writing about web page http://www.downloads.com

I finally get online after I don't know how many days of thinking of trying, and I find that there is sooooo much to do. Including having a little play around with this. I'd love to give some music reviews, but as the title says – no time, so just see the website for free downloads of music, some unsigned, some you WILL have heard of, and most of them good. Also a little hi to all the Rugby crew, if you hadn't twigged it is I, sideburns! (I got rid of the pic cos it looked awful, I'll wait until I get one of me looking reasonable, and no Gaz that doesnt include the one of me puking)
