Artist discography


There are moments in your life when you come across that special album that will follow you for life and everytime you hear a song from it, you get nostalgic and remember exactly what you did when you listened to that album.
This latest decade I have endless love for Goo Goo Dolls "Dizzy up the girl", Tal Bachman´s debut and Third Eye Blind´s "Blue".
There are some fantastic pop / rock releases this year but Leeds based Your Vegas has done the best of them all, their debut is like a hits collection taken from a long career but it´s not!
This 10 track debut album feels like Godzilla against the bands that has influenced YV, I´m thinking of The Killers, Coldplay and U2.
I really love the song "Troubled times" from the EP and it´s ofcourse included here but on the full length album, it´s just another great track because "It makes my heart break", "Birds of paradise", "Your vegas" and "Up until the lights go out" are all smashes in the first degree.
Holy smoke, these guys are the Wayne Gretzky´s of modern rock / pop.

Tracklisting 1. It Makes My Heart Break
2. In My Head
3. Birds Of Paradise
4. Aurora
5. Troubled Times
6. The Way The War Was Won
7. Your Vegas
8. Up Until The Lights Go Out
9. I Wish You Were Somewhere Else
10. Salvador

Did you know that?

The Who were originally called The Detours, then changed their name to The Who after a suggestion by Townsend´s friend Richard Barnes. Their first manager, Pete Meaden, renamed them The High Numbers, and they released one unsuccessful single, Zoot Suit, under that name. When EMI dropped them the band sacked Pete Meaden and went back to being called The Who.

It is said another possible reason was because of Peter Townshend´s grandmother, who would always refer to popular bands as "The Who?" mainly because of hard hearing.
