Numpty has to be one of the best insults in recent times, it's all encompassing. Works especially great in a Dublin accent, 'you f**kin numpty.'

Is it just me or have people tended to go a bit overboard with 'Towers And Clouds' by The Immediate? I do like it but some reviews have called it one of the best Irish debuts in recent years. Plenty of good Irish acts around that haven't been mentioned in this thread..... - The Chapters - Dry County - The Flaws - Jenny Lindfors - The Prescriptions

soviet filter recorded the best demos i've ever heard, with no money. they had the songs but had absolutely no co-ordination or organisation in their set up. still the tunes on their two demos bit the arse off anything i've heard from the immediate or many of the bands mentioned on this threads. delorentos chakras hybrasil bleedin bleedins (even tough in the states mnost of the time) boss volenti (great live) channel one the urges....are a few more.....

the immediate aren't managed by paul mcguinness! he may be coming onboard for licensing in europe but they're quite ably managed by that guy who manages berkley... (s**t.. whats his name?) anyway - immediate album has ambition, ideas and if they were a little better with their internal editing they'd have an amazing set of songs, but unfortunately its not cohesive or consitent enough. i checked out the things after being recommended before and i thought they were great live, but didn't have any songs. i suppose every band has to have one great song: eg - director - reconnect humanzi - out on a wire etc...

My Polish Cleft = Probably the best Irish song I've ever heard. They coulda been an Irish Wolf Parade.

This topic is very funny in its irony. It's the typical Irish Begrudgery coming out in everyone. Case in point: I really like the Immediate Album but it seems that most people in here have gone off them because they are getting some good press and are tipped to be quite big. I personally think they are going to be very big because they are still very young and have the talent to write a catcy song with some depth. Other cases: (I don't personally like them) The Frames - everybody seems to hate them Mr. Ricecakes - Went big abroad - hated here I can see this happening soon to Bell X1. On a completely separate point, I heard that the Humanzi album is terrible but I saw them live last week and they were quite good, don't know whether to get the album.

I'd agree with you. It's a solid enough debut, but a bit ragged. Shows promise, but a long way from the finished article. Ps. It's called 'in towers and clouds'; think the promos had the name misprinted on the cover.

Rice Cakes isn't hated because he's successful. He's hated because his music is turgid bland w*nk AND because in every interview he whines about how awful it is being successful. And I personally hate him because he's banging Renee Zellweger. Who I fancy. So there.

Christ, the ole Irish begrudgery line. This is a myth, it doesn't exist. Irish people are not more susceptible begrudgery than any other nation. Everytime someone doesn't like a few bands etc, someone will come out with the extremely tiresome and whining "typical Irish begrudgery."

Eh, then you should also hate Kenny Chesney whom she dumped Ricecakes to marry, that is if RC actually banged her in the first case, and please no more hatemail, its getting very tiresome and I don't reply to it either
