*downloading*
i like allergies though, cos it's so frantic and random and flaily. simon likes the drums in the "people who've been teaching you have been taught wrong" bit.


...& lol at josh & eddie vedder.

i like the demo one better. the guitar pattern is cooler i think.

my sis was dancing to WDIWWIHG which is strange (she was also dancing to clarkesville yesterday.. :shock: ) so i think it has her approval. obviously because she didnt know it was DUMDUMS. josh sounds reaally costello-ey with his 'h's & that. it feels kinda slow though.

ooh. they're absolutely wonderful :) i didn't recognise Josh's voice at first in WDIWWIHG, another of the many voices of Joshua Doyle.

wdiwwich is one thats going to grow on me i think.i like how josh has tried different vocal styles in the newer material,i think theyre more emotional somehow because of it.maybe thats just me
anyway got to listen to the other two before i can give my opinion,i lost allergies off my computer and cant rememeber it too good but i love umsci so will be good to hear this version

It's a shame the songs never made it really, all the songs have much better lyrics than the early stuff... with proper production and mastering and stuff they'd of been amazing.

As they stand they're still fantastic though...

Sketches for what would have been... perhaps it's just me but i love these kinda unfinished demo things, you can't help but wonder about what could of been...

I can't get WDIWWIHG to work? I clicked save target as, as normal, it started to do the downloady thing then after about 5 seconds both time I tried said download was complete, so I've opened it and it only plays a 7 second clip :cry: '

I love them. WDIWWICH is really relaxing i think. Josh sounds great :) and Stuarts vocals too...
Ship is of course beautiful :)
Allergies....i think i like it. it's very different. I've had it on cd for ages and i know i really liked it at first but i dunno...i think i still do.
