Long Since Forgotten - Standing Room Only

Genre: Power Pop
Producer: Ed Rose
Artist discography


Long Since Forgotten from Syracuse,NY released their debut in 2002 and after touring relentlessly for 2 years-the band has continued to win fans across the country but also matured in their songwriting on their new album "Standing room only".
Heavily influenced by British bands like Manic Street Preachers,Suede and Travis-this nice quartet spiced the music with some powerpop harmonies and my thoughts go directly to similar acts like Copeland and Denver Harbor.
I like the silent and smooth vocals,in these screamo emo times this is an odd thing to hear coz for some-LSF?s music could be filed as Emo if they hadn?t this type of vocals.
Not all the 12 songs hold the same quality but the moments that are good-are even more uplifting....not a bad thing at all.

Did you know that?

The name "Minus the Bear" comes from an in-joke among the band members, referring to the 70´s television program, B. J. and the Bear. "A friend of the band had gone on a date,” explains singer-guitarist Jake Snider, "and one of us asked him afterwards how the date went. Our friend said, ´You know that TV show from the ´70s B.J. and The Bear? It was like that... minus The Bear.´ That’s the straight truth."
