Hmm, with Strange House being relased on the 15th here in the states, I was just curious as to how many fans we've got of this British Psychobilly import. Thoughts and opinions?

Not a very big fan... No offense to you or anyone else that likes them. I just can't get into them.

bloody awful. they procured a record deal purely because of their image and their music ranges from mediocre freakbeat rip off to just plain sh!t. Plus, their not psychobilly in the slightest.

I think all the above comments are a bit harsh, even if "Psychobilly" isnt to your taste. I find them entertaining in a dumb, mucking-about kind of way. Fingers crossed I'll be seeing them when they support the Gossip & New Young Pony Club in Manchester at the International Festival in July - in the ballot for free tickets.

Obviously one of the most exciting bands to come out of Britain in a while. They've divided opinions, mainly for their image rather than their actual music. I'm a fan of theirs, and Strange House was a bloody good debut album.


And oh yeah, they're the TITS live.

Apologies, I haven't been on this thing in quite a while...

well yeah, I'd say it is definitely style over substance, but i do enjoy their music. Their lyrics are also surprisingly clever-very book smart, I'd say.

I used to like them, if you listen to them you can get used to them. but i feel that the amount of publicity theyve had from magazines such as NME has tipped people opinions with out actually listening to them

Well I suppose the majority of people looked at their hair and thought 'wankers' and pigeon-holed them.

Robert Smith syndrome. Although don't think their music is anywhere near as good...

I have to bump these guys, the new album has recently been released and i was left utterly shocked at how good it actually is. I brushed this band off as a trendy fad; a flash in the pan, but they've progressed unbelievably since their debut. All i can say is Primary Colours is fucking good. Its a psychedelic Joy Division meets Suicide by way of Jesus & Mary Chain


The quite awesome Sea Within a Sea
