Itís quite hard to find MP3ís on a band called ĎThe Musicí.

Especially if the album is also self titled.

But I would recommend you give them a listen. Itís a nice mix of good instruments and a good voice.

I donít have the CD on me, but I think itís track 6 Ė turn out the lights.

That song is really good.

Cool. I'll try to find that song.

Man, the whole album is good, but I cant think of the song names.

The People is also one to look out for.

Let me go try find a website for them.

The MusicÖ

Should be fun!

I know itís something co.uk or something.

Iím South African, so that probably wont work.

Umm, the best I can find is lyrics.

I donít know if it helps you find songs.

If I remember ĎThe Peopleí got a bit of airplay, so itís good one to start searching for on Kazaa or something?

The Music Ė The People


Hey Monday morning,
See what you're missing,
I can't live my life like this boy,
I said hey little lady,
see what you're missing,
I can't get enough of your love,

she goes...out all alone and out on her own (x4),

how many times do,
I have to say this,
your match is a light for me babe,
I said hey little lady,
see what you're missing,
I can't get enough of your love,

she goes...out all alone and out on her own (x4),

all alone (x6),

the people (x3), change the way you live now,
the people (x3), change the way you live now,

i googled "the music " "take the long road" and got a fan site, and went to links and it got me to the official site

i love the first two songs on their album and can't listen to the rest of it

I tired, with different results, but with 'The People'

Which is hard to do.

I fucking love them.

How can these fun loving guys NOT bring you quality music?

Only the first two songs? Pity you feel like that, there's some real gems in there.

the words "the music" and "the people" probably appear way more often than any other combination

i mean, any web page with those two phrases anywhere on it come up

I am aware of this.

Thought I'd try take a chance.

I couldn't remember any other names till I saw the list.

Then i tried to remember some lyrics, which is why i found the other side.

i've heard them before, not too bad at all. but their singles all look pretty much the same with the concentric circles. that gets a small thumbs down in my book. but yeah, worth a listen i suppose, even on 56k

Yeah, I think they're trying to do that intentionally. The band called 'The Music', the albums and singles and everything all basically look the same with those rainbow CD things.


And yup, I did get your PM.

Will try find out exactly, but as far as I know there have been no South Africa specific releases.

I worked in a CD store for a long time, and never heard of any different releases from the normal ones.

They do print them here, Virgin South Africa or whatever though.

04-23-2004, 04:48 AM
yeah i know they're trying to keep them looking similar but i don't think i works that well. i'd say the series of idlewild singles with the black and white photo sleeves did / does the same thing much better. meh.

yeah i'm just looking for south african pressings, have heard of machina and GH south african pressings just looking for info on any others. thanks a lot

As far as I know all the top ones were done here. Except maybe Gish.

Try um, Kalahari.net for more information?

Singles: Take The Long Road And Walk It & Getaway - both amazing tracks IMO.

Other notable tracks: Turn Out The Light & People.

Hey.

More input.

With a name like Twat are you from the UK, and is that why you have an interest in them?


Turn out the light is probably my favourite song from them.

But itís not the only good one, at all, in any way.

Twat

Haha, sorry to be brief - I'm at work and sometimes don't get chance to elaborate.

Yes, I'm from the UK. I heard Take The Long Road all over the radio at the time and I saw them play at Reading either this year or the year before (I forget...) They're good live, that's for sure.

I wouldn't say I love the album, but it certainly does have its charm... the tracks I listed were my personal favourites but (for a change) I think the singles give a nice indication of what is to come from the LP in terms of their sound.

I recommend people check them out though, of course, they're not going to be everyone's cup of tea.

Kudos to The Music for avoiding being the NME flavour of the month though, unlike The Strokes or Jet or someone...

Eh. I don't get the big deal about them. I saw them open for Oasis in 2001 and thought they were terrible. However, I have to admit that they were much better when they opened for The Vines last year.
