The Adorable Appreciation Thread.....

Post by zhivago » Fri Dec 22, 2006 2:17 pm

my favourite band of all time...it's been at number one since 1993! :)

I love all the stuff they've done...and most people like their first album"Against Perfection" best...my fave album though is "Fake"

I just love the film noir vibe of the whole record.

I remember "Homeboy" blasting on the PA in a long-defunct club in Prague when I first moved here.

I've never heard of them - is there anything you'd recommend checking out?

I remember vaguely hearing that the lead singer has a new band at the moment .. or is that old news?

he got a band together a few years back, with his brother...they were called Polak...and IMO were nowhere near as good as Adorable...and they didn't really sound like Adorable either.

their first three singles were pretty cool though :)


he's actually now going solo...his album should be out very, very soon  8)

there's a Simpson's episode where Krusty's crazy former sidekick Bob is living on the lam in Italy and has a wife and kid. The Simpsons show up and he tries to kill Bart for the tenth time and his liitle boy keeps screaming "Vendetta! Vendetta! Vendetta!"

Bob says "Isn't that Adorable!"

it cracked me up!
