Doves

There's some football show or something that has "Pounding" as its theme song!!!

I Doves and miss them. I love bands that are so good that they make me want to cry.

Their football team is losing 2-0 to those awful Man United people though.

Regarding Doves themselves, I'm very ambivalent towards them. They're excellent musicians and have fantastic songs - I bought the Last Broadcast, was blown away, but afterwards I've never really felt like listening to them much. No idea why.

Last Broadcast definitely rates in my all time favourite albums. So many amazing songs. And Pounding is particularly fabulous!

I finally managed to download the subsub album a while back.. it's pretty cool

Can't wait to hear some new material.

yesyesyes...Doves are criminally underrated. I bought Last Broadcast a few months ago and LOVE it. Lovelovelove. It is utterly fabulous. Pounding is spectacular. I love how it builds in the beginning. I'm rambling, but it's amazing.... Caught by the River, while simple, is beautiful. One of my favourites.

I only regret that I didn't discover them earlier? Why did I bypass the Last Broadcast thread here a year ago? Why did I ignore the "This band is fabulous" hype that was emulating from them?

I ended up buying Lost Souls a few weeks ago but haven't really given it a listen because of exams--except for the Man who told everything Next week I'm getting Lost Sides from a friend of mine

Jimi's voice What's going on with them now? Are they making another album??

Let's leave at sunrise
Let's live by the ocean
I don't mind if we never come home at all
Steal the morning
So set in motion
In and out of love
And institutions


EDIT: I can't spell.

I think they're underrated in my house. I don't listen to them enough. But I like them.

no worries. i'm a huge doves fan and i never got into til about a year ago....pretty well around the time they stopped touring NA. that always happens to me. A band tour like mad and i don't start liking them til they stop and don't do anything for years.

they are currently in the studio...have about 10 or so songs demoed. and get this....they are currently testing out a few songs with william orbit. should be interesting.


hopefully they finish soon and get back out on the road.

ps...take a listen to "rise" on LS. it;s my fav.

doves are better than the average brit-pop but they have some way to go up to be an oasis, blur or even coldplay and long way to go if they are to be radiohead, u2 or pink floyd... but they have the talent..

i would disagree that doves have a long way to go to match coldplay.. they've definitely demonstrated a lot more diverse talents.

doves

I've been lucky enough to see them live a few times and to meet them. Great performers and nice people too.
