A long time is not a long time at all.

Eight years? That's nothing, you proved it yourself, it went by in a flash.

whatever happened to Turin Brakes? my enduring memory of them is that one of them looked a bit like the guy from Trigger Happy TV. whatever happened to him?
honey pie, i don't know when it started, just stop buying your albums from the supermarket. They only sell records that have charted.

Classic case of the music industry moving the goalposts, so to speak. Ooberman have been victims of that too much.

When you said that you reminded me of who Starsailor are/were. I couldn't stand their music.
