Full Time Hobby FTH013S: 6th March 2006
1. The Days Go By Oh So Slow
"In the grass at Union Square, I touched you're face, pushed back your hair"
2. You Don't Have To Tell Me I Was A Terrible Man
"I'm sending you this note from a northern England coast"
Nightmare Of You sound like an American-Rock version of The Smiths (If you can imagine such a thing). Like The Smiths' songs, these are tales of loneliness and love. But the sound is more akin to The Killers. Even the title of 'You Don't Have To Tell Me I Was A Terrible Man' reminded me of the title of Morrissey's finest B-Side 'I Know Very Well How I Got My Name'. The bouncy American sound stops these from being ranked along side Morrissey's finest tunes (But they come damn close).
Like when The Thrills went to America and brought back a sun-drenched sound. Why don't these guys come over to England and spend some time getting pelted with rain. Hopefully that would erase all remaining warmth from their future songs. Come on guys, come to Carlisle, soak up the ambience!
