The Horrors

After seeing some hype of this outfit of late without hearing them I was a bit sceptical, but I heard their new single on the radio last night and I thought it was actually damn fine - very 80s matchbox-esque. Listen out!

Haha,

There's no point in anyone trying to go and see The Horrors, the amount of time Josh alone takes on his hair - they'd never make it on stage!





I used to think I had something to say but my dumb ideologies gave me away.

I haven't heard anything by them. They look boring though.





I often go to sleep with pyjama bottoms, socks and a t-shirt on. When I awake I am naked. This is a popular phenomenon, known in scientific circles as theft. My family members steal my clothes in the night and sell them down the market. I often walk to work and see kids wearing the clothes that only the night before I was sleeping in. It is a disturbing development.

i've never heard of this band, but i'm hopeful they might be good if they're named after the blur b-side!

It's a looooooooong story, but no not (entirely) an inter-club thing. Rhys ('Spider' in the Horrors) has nothing to do with Junk anymore anyway. But Farris, the singer, is one of the biggest cunts I've ever met, I dont know anybody that has a good word to say about him.

Rhys, also, claimed to have invented post-punk once and how dare we put it on a flyer. I still have the email, it makes me laugh every time I read it.

Everyone will have forgotten about them in a few months.

Hi Richard,

Haven't spoken to you for a long time. What a nice
surprise it was to see you refer to me as "one of the biggest cunts I've ever met...haven't met anyone who has a good word to say about him." Hardly fair and I would like to know how you could justify that comment, simply because I've never had
any reason to say anything bad about you or your
club.
I must have done something pretty bad to warrant
what you said, so it doesn't seem to make sense for me not to even be aware of a problem between us. I'm not going to retaliate and descend into a
slanging match, but I would like to understand why you have a problem with me. Faris


Hi Faris,

Fair enough, I'm pleased you haven't gone off on one,
because I do regret writing that. I'm not going to
make excuses, I shouldn't have written it and I
apologise because, no I don't think we do have a
problem personally.

Richard

The Horrors were actually amazing live. Great stage-performance from Faris too.

The Horrors are just different.

Why is everyone being such idots?

I'd completely forgotten about this! Hilarious stuff.

The Horrors had the last laugh, as they went from cartoon pyschobilly to swirling, pysche-pop!

Also lookingforward to LP4 and quite sad I didn't get to go to Truck (which they headlined).
