Why is Blade an ****? You've made similar remarks to him before and I really don't understand your problem with him! Hope you sort it out as both of you have provided great links and info about a band we all cherish.
Ta v much for the The Sleepy Jackson info. I've put it up on the Howling Bells Wiki page, and I'll do the Nettwerk compilation album thing too.
Going back a few steps, The Pierces were on Jools Holland (BBC TV) tonight. They were quite good, but unfortunately Glenn wasn't on drums. In fact they didn't have a drummer - must have been a machine.
