K, most of you might only know them from that Iris song,but are there any fans of their other stuff on this site??
I've got that dizzy up the girl album and its brill. Just wondering, does anyone know if they are still together or what? I tried to go to their website but i keep getting cut off from the net when I do (my computer is fecked!)
I think i saw something bout "Gutterflower", is this a new/old album or single or something?? They're really good :)

    I've copied Dizzy up the Girl from a friend, and I :heart: it! Slide's my favourite song, but I still like Iris - the only one I'd heard before I got the album.

    So what other stuff have they done? Anyone got another album to recommend?

    Gutterflower was the last album they released. It was pretty boring to be honest and did not live up to their previous work.

    Iris is a beautiful song so I will always respect them for that, but they're a bit samey and dreary for my tastes.

    I don't think they have split up. They're on tour with Bon Jovi in the US this summer.

    They haven't split up (yet) but they're thinking of calling it quits soon apparently. Although they are touring in the summer like bumblebee said.
    I think Dizzy up the Girl were as good as it got to be honest - I didn't particularily like any of their other stuff. As much as I love Dizzy, there's only so much whimsical wailing I can take.

    Thanx for the replies! I dont think i'll bother spending money on the Gutterflower album then. Might actually get the calling's one instead like the-macca suggested. Gonna do some serious shopping tomorrow :)
