    okay! well ...i have to admit, i really like what i've heard from the thrills, and i didn't expect to. i thought it would be annoy me(i hate when irish singers put on really forced american accents),but in spite of myself i like it. looking forward to hearing more. what do you think?

    Saw them supporting Doves in the Olympia..not bad to be fair to them....but kind of have that 'singin in an American tone' thing going on...why do people do that??? Some nice mellow harmonies..bit Beach Boy's ...but all in all a little 'light-weight' as it were...kind of like the theme tune to 'Three's Company'.... ha ha ah aha haha...

    what did you think of the gig? very short set(about 8 3-4 minute songs), and some guy behind me kept shouting "go on the flaming lips!" all the time. (maybe he had a point).

    I didn't enjoy the gig myself. I don't know why exactly it just left me cold. PS That was my mate behind you then, he has some mental problems.

    yeah, they're ok i suppose - i got that beachboys/west coast thing too - but i get the feeling they're modest enough lads and if they're playing the music they enjoy then fair enough... but i think there's better bands closer to home. but thats just my opinion.

    I don't even think it's an Irish thing or not an Irish thing - they aren't bad - can play their instruments and carry off their 'sound' well enough live - there's just nothing too exciting or new or diverse about it. The stuff they are releasing now would probably do a lot better if they waited til the summer - cos it's kind of driving in yer car on a sunny day kind of stuff. Just think it's a little bit one dimensional to be honest.

    yeah, to be fair they can play a decent tune alright - just feel the vocals are a bit lacklustre - holding back or something...

    I saw two of them eating kebabs in abrakebabra there a while ago. As soon as they left the Thrill was just gone. Sorry.
