    Ex-members are now playing as the new band called "The Everlasting Yeah" and will be playing at The Half Moon Putney on Thursday May 12th to promote their debut album “Anima Rising”. I saw them live recently and they sounded brilliant!!! Do not miss it!

    I used to love this band back in the day. Funny how I'd not bothered with them for a while. I forgot how great they were.

    This lot take me back. Them and the Wedding Present were the first bands I got into outside the charts. The beginning of a fantastic voyage. Big decision would be such a huge hit now. The first three albums still sound terrific. Great live band too.

    These guys are fantastic! I've never really listened to them until now. I've always loved their name, my favourite name for a band, it's great. Can't believe it has taken so long to hear them. They deserve loads more recognition and plays....

    I saw their last London gig in 1994 when I was 17 and still have the T-shirt! A lifetime later, I'm still a fan and looking forward to seeing them play again. Come play in Oxford, guys! Last of the last of the true believers :)
