You obviously rate them highly and I haven't heard any of their music yet.
And The Pixies and The Fall are two interesting bands and I wondered if you agreed with the comparisons?
And, incidentally, why aren't the Flaming Lips in your top 5 U.S. bands?
Well i know this will lead at a second revolutionary war but I've never actually heard the Fall. The Pixies influence I don't really hear, then again maybe I'm tone deaf.
The two big singles were:
Wolf Like Me
Staring At The Sun
They sound very different and I was going to write a description but I just couldn't do it. Give it a shot though. The melody of SatS is dark and beautiful, while WLM is more of a package deal. Im interested in your opinion.
