Math rock

Thanks to Kenny for the tip-off that semi-legendary Nottingham outfit Six. By Seven are back together. Chris Olley, Chris Davis, James Flower and Sam Hempton, who have featured in a whole host of different projects over recent years (Spotlight Kid, Twelve, Fuck Me USA, Earth The Californian Love Dream), have "buried their differences" and are currently working on new material. No mention of original bassist James Douglas, though - a bit curious, given the importance of the bass to their early sound.

The question is: will it all add up? Things have never been quite the same since Hempton walked out around the time that their second LP The Closer You Get, so it'll be interesting to see if they can pick up where they left off then - intense and angry, while retaining some of the brooding poise of their debut The Things We Make. If they can, then no-one - least of all me - will be complaining about the fact that they seem to be the band that just wouldn't die.

On an unrelated music note, my review of shoegazers Air Formation's latest album Daylight Storms is now up on the Vanity Project site.

Hey, I just wanted to know if the banner over your headline is a safe link? Should I stay away from it? It might be a hacker or something.

You are surely a creative person and your write up is a good enough proof. You created something from your imagination but I loved reading every bit of it. I think new authors should learn a lesson from you. Great man!!!
