    So they have returned! I'm flabbergasted frankly; I thought for certain they had split up and not bothered to tell anyone. Turns out they were just on an indefinite hiatus instead. 'Complicity' is a mighty comeback song. New album on the way this year?

    The Early Years make lovely studio work, but to really get them you MUST hear this lot play live, it's an awesome sound.

    i just bought a promo copy of the album from the 3 for £2 section in my local independent record store, sounds superb so far!

    You're really lucky :D Well, I don't think they'll be successful, their music is not for everybody (luckily), but they have a lot of talent that none of other more famous UK bands have today

    Its indeed excellent, but i'm biased because Roger is very old friend of mine. Hopefully 2007 will be the year they make their fortune. Go Mackin
