Heard the single 'Demons' on 6Music the other day. First time I'd heard it probably since it was released. Surprised that it was as far back as 1997. A nostalgic trip back to those times. :D

It's a wonderful song, the song that got me into the band in fact.

Yes indeed, I was thinking that when I heard it. A forgotten gem from the 'Britpop' days. I will dig out my SFA albums again some day :D

I used to absolutely love them but for me they turned to shit after Phantom Power. Just so dull.

I object! Hey Venus! and DD/LY were both excellent. If anything, Phantom Power and Love Kraft are their two weakest records.

love kraft has some great gems on it though.
i like all their records but didn't feel dd/ly as much as their others. some really amazing songs on it though...
and i consider out spaced a proper sfa album. every song on there is fantastic (well, i always skip "don't be a fool billy" since it reminds me of an old friend named billy)

Oh, absolutely. All their albums are full of great songs. I just feel that Love Kraft and Phantom Power have several unmemorable tracks in addition, or tracks that I would simply skip, whereas the rest of their albums are much more consistent in that regard.

Haven't listened to Out Spaced or any of the EPs, which I probably should.

I'm very much into them at the moment. Shame they haven't done an album in almost 7 years though, especially considering how fast they used to arrive :(

I never gave much listen to Dark Days/Light Years but I'm really enjoying that at the moment. A return to form sorta record, really. I'm not the biggest fan of Hey Venus, or Mwng for the matter, because I prefer bloopy bleepy poppy eclectic SFA, but those are still solid 7/10 albums imo (and I know everyone else gave them 8/10, but that rating is reserved for most of their other albums 8-) )

It's a bit of fun, I like it. Does silly pop music a lot better than All for One that's for sure.
