2 FROM 2000











A new millennium. There was talk of people suffering ‘millennium madness’ with the uncertainty of what would the future hold for them. So, how are we all doing then? 8 years into what has become just total madness, not so much a brave new world, more a brutal new one. Both these 2 albums were released in 2000 and appear to have been dumped in the musical dustbin of history , well it’s time to empty it, so here ya go The Closer You Get by SIX BY SEVEN is an aural assault of sonic guitars, laid back almost psychedelic rhythms and foot to the floor garage rock, that sucks you in and spits you out amongst the grease; powerful stuff. The Clash meet My Bloody Valentine, post prog punk rock anyone? Learning To Let Go by TERRIS is a cathartic trip, a breakdown of a record; rejection, drugs and mental illness are all expressed in sheer poetry. The anguish and passion of vocalist Gavin Goodwin is unbelievable, this is for real with emotions laid bare over a post grunge, rave Brit pop groove, like Nirvana meeting the Stone Roses. Awesome stuff . Were both these albums products of some sort of ‘millennium madness’ who knows. Why not try ’em for size here for Six By Seven and there for Terris, or was it the other way round? Enjoy!

Hey man, I just read your comment on my Godfathers -Shoot to Thrill post. For some unknown reason, your comment just appeared very recently. Anyways, regarding your request, my answer is why not, good thing you're asking permission, because others are just stealing them. Some dude stole my Accused post and who knows what else.

More power my man!
