Did anyone see Chapterhouse at the Truck festival recently? Are there anymore gigs planned?

I've heard nothing more is planned for now. If you're a fan, you'd be better with seeing it as a one off thing and then get surprised when they announce something bigger...

for a "classic shoegaze band", I thought Chapterhouse were pretty unremarkable.

I lump most "classic" shoegaze bands in that category.

I love Chapterhouse.  It took me years to get into the second album, Blood Music, but now I think it's fantastic.  Ahead of its time I reckon.  Some of the early b-sides are lovely too; feel the same, in my arms.  Still one of my fave bands.

I only know "Whirlpool" and the song "Mesmerise"... I like "Autosleeper" and "Falling Down", but the rest of the album is somewhat boring.

Their first record is pretty decent, has some good songs. I second the Breather love; That's a great song. Falling Down is cool, Treasure has that really cool riff at the end. Fun album, I've heard little off of Blood Music because Chapterhouse never kept my interest that long.

I might catch major heat for saying this, but I still prefer them over Ride, who I think are extremely overrated.

Ride is pretty over-rated, but not bad. Chapterhouse is pretty unexceptional. Nothing that either Ride or Catherine Wheel didn't do better.

Only thing that Ride did that was pretty solid was "Nowhere". Even "Going blank again" wasn't that great, in my opinion. I like a few tracks off of "Carnival of light", but that's it.

I hate people who hate "Tarantula". It's brilliant!

Never heard that one. Wasn't that their last LP?
