Not sure if this has been mentioned before but are there any hold steady fans on here?

Seeing them for the first time tomorrow night, can't wait!

I quite like the Hold Steady, I can see how Gaslight fans would, it's kind of similar.

I actually got into their catalog backwards (Stay Positive first, then Boys & Girls, etc.) so maybe that helped with the instant obsession with them. All I know is that in less than four months they've climbed to 1320 plays on my last.fm which is kind of a lot.

I got Boys & Girls when it first came out, because I heard the name about a lot. The vocals really put me off at first, but they've totally grown on me. I need to check out their other stuff sometime.

I'd start with Stay Positive, as i think that's the most accessible. Then Seperation Sunday is really good, probably my favourite now but took me a while to get into it.

yeah, i wasn't able to get into this band til i listened to Stay Positive, but i went back to Boys and Girls, and it's a lot better. SP has some of their best songs, but BaGiA is a lot better overall, with some very good songs on it as well

I'd say get Boys & Girls In America first, it's a bit more direct than the others, even Stay Positive. After that though, once you're hooked, Separation Sunday will become your favourite album. Ever. It's astonishingly good; lyrically incredible (they are, in my opinion, the best lyricists out there at the moment), tight as hell, dense, intelligent... christ it's a good record.

I'm a big THS fan too. These two bands are keeping my faith in rock and roll alive.

I must mention Almost Killed Me their debut album. It rocks in a very similar way to Sink Or Swim (only with some classic rock style solos)

Brian could do a real number on their tracks Most People Are DJ's and the ballad Certain Songs. And THS would rip We Came To Dance a new one (in the nicest possible way)
