Does anyone like these guys???

 

They are electro-alternative and they are a lot of fun and they are from Scotland but unlike most Scottish bands they are not boring and nor are they self righteous bastards ;-):rotfl:

 

Anyway if you haven't (I hope some of you guys have heard of them) then get to their myspace site and check out the likes of "The Sega Method" and "Sexlines Are Expensive Comedy" and let me know what you think!

I hope that wasn't a dig at me in there. :P

 

I don't know why it would be though, I'm not a Scottish band.

 

But yes, I've been listening to DBA for 2/3 years now, a smashin' wee band.

 

My friends band Acrylic Iqon have supported them a few times up here.

Any chance you've got any of their earlier ep's you can toss my way then Ross? :D

 

I heard of them the other year and never thought about them until I went through a bunch of CD's and remembered how much fun they are.

 

And it wasn't a dig at you it was a dig at yer music scene and Del Amitri

Haha yeah, sure thing. If any of them have it that is. Where's Babs when you need her? :P

 

When she's back on later, there's no way she'll ignore this thread so when you read this - Babs, help sort out Lee with the old EPs if you have them please? :)

 

But I like Franz Ferdinand.:crybad:

Ah someone else likes them tooo?? Now we have a thread :D

 

I so want those EP's or any bonus tracks, live, b-sides or anything that I can lay my hands on ;-)

 

FF kinda annoyed me and when I was in Glasgow I went to the record store that was near and opening for a train/tube station and when I went in there I saw a poster with the singer with a cock in his moth and I got a lecture off the bloke from the shop as to why they suck :rotfl: So someone shares my hate.

Yep, if memory serves me right she stays in the same town as one of them. She can correct me if I'm wrong when she reads this, my memory has been a little off of late.

 

I think I had some live stuff kicking about, I'll look into that aswell.

 

Hahaha, was it Avalanche Records beside Queen St. Station? Sounds like something you'd see in there haha.

Avalanche Records sounds familiar it was a great little shop where I spent at least £60 there before I poured the rest of my money down my neck :D Is it still there as I was planning on going when I see the trio.
