    Was chatting about SFA the other week actually, after listening to their newish album.

    They are one of those bands that I think I'm genuinely missing out on, but I have never got into them.
    Even after repeated listenings. It just always kinda washes over me, but most ppl who like them are people I'd consider to have good taste, so I genuinely think I may be missing something, but...nada..

    Our generation's answer to the Beatles?

    In what way?
  10. avatar tenrabbits
    What a ridiculous statement. Aye they're a good band and all, albeit much less original than they're given credit for.
  11. avatar tinpot anto
    I agree entirely with what Amz says, in fact it's quite a relief to find I'm not alone in that.

    Though to be fair I could say exactly the same thing about the Beatles which is odd considering the context.
  12. avatar blonderedhead
    I too have never really got into SFA.

    How can they be called this generations beatles though? Wouldn't they have to be massively popular, have worldwide fame and almost soundtracking a generation?
    SFA are more like a band that never really cracked the mainstream, hardly our generations answer to the beatles?

    Like that 'Westlife - the new Beatles' malarky a few years back. Ahh.. all these the Beatles of our generations comparisons always hold up! Let SFA be our generations SFA.

  18. avatar rentaghost

    Worth going to the Neon Neon gig on the 4th to see the DeLorean at any rate.

    No.

    If I remember correctly, the tank was so expensive to run that they had to get rid of it.

    Ahhhh...the glory days of indie record labels and their foolish approach to spending money.
