    Do you remember this band?

    I realise that it's a long shot, but I wonder if anyone can help me with the name of a band.

    They were on the scene around the same time as The Automatic (What's that coming over the hill...Monster) and I used to confuse the two of them.

    They didn't last long, probably had 1 hit, but I saw them in the Liquid Room around 2005/6 and they were good.

    The lead singer climbed up to the balcony during the gig and I think he and the female in the band were an item. I've a feeling that they split up which put an end to the band.

    I just can't remember their name.

    Madness, as you know, is a lot like gravity. All it takes is a little push.

    They're still around for what it's worth - no idea what they're like these days but they released their latest album just last year I recall.

    Yeah I realised that.

    I don't know what made me think they'd broken up. I was probably confusing them with The Automatic again.

    The lead singer and the bassist were a couple, they split up a while ago. Also the drummer has changed, so could be either of those 2 things.

    The Subways are still going strong, Josh Morgan the drummer left due to family reasons but they're still gigging.
