Band called the Editors on Jools Holland tonight


Recommended Posts

Now I totally accept that I am way out of the scene when it comes to current music so it comes as no great surprise to me that I have never heard of them and I am fully expecting people to tell me that they are already pretty big and that I must have my head in the sand.

However, ignoring all of that, my point is that I liked them a lot and was wondering if anyone else either knows of them or has any of their material. The lead singer sort of reminds meof a cross between Ian Curtis, Stuart Staples and David Gedge and as far as I am concerned that is enough to qualify as great!

I've just heard two songs by them. Blood and some new song they've made. They're quite good. Not really my kind of music though.

As for the lead singer sounding like a cross between Ian Curtis, Stuart Staples and David Gedge. I have no idea who those blokes are but you might be right icon_confused.gif

Wierd voice though. Unique, in a good way. icon_wink.gif

Jools Holland is the only music show I make sure I watch - I have to say that Paul mcCartney's first song (can't remember what it was called) just proves that you can get to a pointin music when you can churn out any old sh*te and people will still take you its good. A definite case of Emperor's new Clothes.

Mod - maybe because you know I will listen to any music which would drive most other people to cut their wrists icon_wink.gif

HSK - He had a stunning voice - always refreshing to hear a band that is vocal lead.

Well. Reading through this thread, I've heard of Paul McCartney, and I've heard of Ian Curtis - I've still got a couple of Joy Division orignal vinyl releases. Unfortunately I've not only heard of but I've also heard Bjork. Apart from that I'm lost.

Stuart Staples - lead singer of a band called 'The Tindersticks' and also has a couple of solo albums - The Tindersticks, for me, are the finest band in existence just now (although their existence is in some doubt)

Tindersticks - City Sickness


Tindersticks - Travelling Light


Stuart Staples - That Leaving Feeling (Mini Loz loves this video for reasons that will probably be obvious - remember he is only 3)

David Gedge - Lead singer of the Wedding Present - Thw Wedding Present were a fabulous band, in particular the George Best album but also may other great albums as well.

The Wedding Present - Brassneck


The Wedding Present - Everyone Thinks He Looks Daft (live)

Ah the Wedding Present, I've actually got 3 or 4 of their albums (including George Best Plus), mp3'd from an old eMusic subscription. Got some Cinerama too somewhere. There you go, I knew a little bit more than I knew I knew.

technically, they're actually called Editors (no 'the').

Pretty good band, with a few top tunes -see 'Munich,' 'All Sparks' and 'Blood' from their first album and the new single, which is what i'm guessing they played on Jools Holland..

I am not going as far as saying what I head was on a par with 'Unknown Pleasures' but then again I only think the two styles are marginally comparable - Ian Curtis has probably just about been dead long enough for there to be space for someone to squeeze their head in icon_wink.gif
