Well it has been a while since I last made a post, so I decided to end the drought and post something other than local emo-punk sounds. So I welcome you to The Stills! The Stills are a Montreal four-piece starting to put their own mark on the world, with only one EP and a LP under their belt. Word on the street is The Stills started when they helped a friend in Barcelona score some drugs and in return they received a four-track recorder. The Stills create music citing influences such as Joy Division and Echo & the Bunnymen.

I know a few of you are into Interpol so I thought you might enjoy this post, considering they supported Interpol in the fall of 2003. They have also supported such acts as The Music, The Rapture, The Streets and The Yeah Yeah Yeahs.

The Stills have that atmospheric sound of Joy Division (in a way) with brighter feel. They leave you satisfied but canít help make you feel that they are yet to unleash the full of their potential. Go buy a copy of Logic Will Break Your Heart if you like what you hear!

So anyway The Stills.....


PS. Nullus is staying....go home peoples!

Yay, a channel owned by Rhyder, now there's a server I won't be using in the near future

Also, why do The Stills look like they've been badly photoshopped onto that background? Look at the guy on the left's hair for crying out loud.

Wow, that is poor photoshopping. Maybe it's supposed to be a 'we only kinda care about our image, but not enough to spend 10 minutes on photoshop' look or something...

They have to be pretty cool to use that look. I might even download the songs. The fact that Joy Division and Interpol was mentioned was enough to make me wanna get the songs, but the LOOK, my golly the look!

By the way, I will try not to send any more rambling posts - i will keep them to minimal rambling if possible.

also nullus has decided to stay ignore the server channel bullshit.

I dont think its photoshopped.

They are just being heavily backlit which is making them look like they have been cut from another scene.

It doesn't matter, I just thought it was funny is all.

I'm not your teacher here to give you encouragement. And you've only made 3 posts anyway, schmendrick.

I'll never understand how so much personal drama appears in these here comments. Makes you wonder if and when the comments sections will be used for, oh i don't know, comments about the music that's being posted rather than livejournal-esque displays of personal angst.

It's nice to see local bands (local for me anyway) showing up around here. It's strange though...the Still have what i call the "Sam Roberts" effect going on wherein they've not actually been a huge part of the Montreal "scene", yet use the terminology to makes themselves look cooler on a global scale.

Well-written post though.

mr gast = angsty?

Comment posted by: Edgy at April 20, 2004 03:39 AM

Mr gast, that was very witty, you "never heard of him before but now making posts every second day" loser.

Oh so they use Montreal as cool cachet? newsflash dickhead; nobody cares what you canadian losers think. The Stills are embarrased to be from montreal for good reason.

don't complain that we australians enjoy laying into each other. that's what counts as good fun down here. Maybe you will take your banal, world music canadian shit someplace else. that would make us very happy.

A better question then who is Mr.Gast is who is this Graduate bloke who, without an introduction or an explanation, seems to think himself well placed to decide what Australians regard as good fun and what people want from this website.

Does this Graduate guy want an account to write on this website? If he doesn't he is to shut up from this point on.

YAY SEAL CLUBBING

I think Mr Graduate is a shitstirrer, although why he doesn't direct his bile at perthrockcity instead of the alt mystifies me.
