    Grumpiest Fun is another excellent collection of tunes! I don't even mind the re-used Grandmaster Gareth solo tracks... However it seems like most of the humour and fun found on Solar Hi-Fi is now only found on these collections, and not so much on the "real" albums. Shame, but at least they play bits of both at gigs!

    Ta, kinda got that the 1st time you said that :P In other news, they were excellent in Newcastle tonight, though I had to leave just as the encore began. New songs sound excellent as ever! Oh, and the DVD is amazing!

    It's not bad, but Solar Hi-Fi and Black Hole were both so good, that anything since then always seems "meh". Funny Times and Television's People both sounded a little average on first listen, but they've grown on me a fair bit since then... keep listening!

    Wow, just got their new album and I've got too say that it's nothing compared to their earlier albums, what a shame.

    So underrated. I don't know why they aren't more popular.

    Saw them in Lancaster last year, they were on with Kate Goes who I'd gone to see, Misty's were a bonus...excellent band. Loved it. Notice they're on again in October...same venue, will be there.

    Hmmm... I'm sure I've heard / seen "Sir" Erotic Volvo mentioned a lot more than that one incident of "Sri"... but whatever, he's a man covered in hands, he can do what he likes.

    Been lucky enough to see these guys live twice. Totally unique and totally themselves - no-one else does it like Misty. And that's why I love them! EJ

    I can't believe the spelling mistake on the back of Solar Hi-Fi about "Sri" Erotic Volvo (as opposed to Sir) wasn't fixed for the re-issue, and also appears in the bio on here!
