Re: Scouse bands

The stands were great live

From a gig at the cockpit watching shack and these in 2003 I ended up backstage at Leeds and then put on the guesty for Manc a couple of nights after.

Spent the late afternoon early evening in the academy 3 upstairs drinking with Mick and John.. Keane were supposed to be in first, then the stands and then shack. Me, Mick and John were just leaving for a beer at the big hands bar when the tour manager came and said that Keane hadn't shown and weren't coming so the stands would be on longer and so could shack.. Mick said he wanted to watch the stands and so did I so John left and I watched the support band with the main act. During the set which was superb Howie bollocks the drummer and gave him a big fuckin stare... I never noticed what had happened but they were obviously very professional, right as fuck and not in the mood for fuck ups.  I looked at Mick, laughed and said fuckin hell Mick you've got to follow these.. he said, I know, tell me about it. We went upstairs and finished off the rider.. John came back , went in the fridge for a beer and it was empty..  called me and Mick cunts and wasn't happy.  The brothers then racked up three fat lines,  three big sniffs, a group hug, I wished them luck and they went onstage and I went stage front. Blows  the stands away... never in doubt.

Re: Scouse bands

Great story that Scootay smile

I saw the Stands loads of times around the time that 'All Years Leaving' came out. They were my favourite live band for a while. Their  live set was knockout as you say. Seemed to go off on mad psychedelic jamming detours as the set progressed but it was probably well rehearsed. Their drummer drums for Weller now doesn't he?

I could see where people were coming from when they said they were derivative. 'When this river rolls over you' is essentially 'Rain' by the Beatles and this one  here > has more than a touch of 'You ain't going nowhere' by the Byrds but they upped it all several notches live. Talented lad Howie Payne.

Re: Scouse bands

Shit got me listening to them now when I've loads of work to do. I loved this one. Reminds me of being in my early 30s and drinking loads of Laphroig single malt. Lovely song:

Re: Scouse bands

I saw The Stairs at Glastonbury one year on the second stage, first band on in the morning I think. They were pretty good from what I rememeber.

Site stalwart.

Re: Scouse bands

I have to be honest and say I've never heard of The Stands

After listening to the tracks on here I can see why

Too guitar pop for me although I'm sure they're better live......

You are what you repeatedly do. Excellence is not an event - it is a habit.

Definitely a great live band...agree on that mate yeah.

That video for here she comes again is fuckin awful.. what were they thinking?

I liked that crescent album at the time too.

When the coral played at new Brighton in a circus big top... that was some line up

The coral
The zutons
The libertines
The thrills
The basement
The bees

I organised a mini bus for a few of us.

We all had some very strong pills and a great time was had by all.

I stood by the bus handing a ticket and a couple of pills to each passenger.

Lovely

Re: Scouse bands

lol There was a nice little scene going on around the "Zanzi" on Seel Street around then.  I was only about 8 when the Bunnymen used to play Erics so enjoyed what was going on. Fun times.

Yeah there was. But I always think that somethings happening in Liverpool.  Don't know what it is but it's my favourite British city. Always love it there.

I'd agree with that. Used to go over a lot when I lived in Manchester. I always found it a breath of fresh air. Don't know if its the actual   sea air but things just seemed less claustrophobic and heavy than Manchester can feel like when you've not left it in a while. Not been for ages. Been thinking of a day out with the kids soon.
