Product Description

Product Description

Nottingham s six. by seven, released their first album, The Things We Make to rave reviews in 1998. Five Peel Sessions followed, an appearance on Later With Jools Holland and much touring. The band gained a strong underground following, and released four more albums. Lead singer and creative force, Chris Olley preferred to shun the limelight, releasing internet only albums of wide ranging music and building valve distortion boxes for a number of famous bands with fellow guitarist, Martin Cooper. In 2011, Olley formed the drummerless version of six. by seven, macabrely named The Death Of Six By Seven with long time original member and Hammond Organ player, James Flower and ex-six. by seven bass player, Pete Stevenson as well as Martin Cooper on guitar. Gigs followed and so did five singles and an album. After a wrong phone call to a music shop and a chance meeting in London, Olley found himself having a beer with ex Placebo / Boo Radleys drummer Steve Hewitt. It turned out to be a magical and divine coming together as Hewitt said, There s nothing for it, I should throw my drums in the car and come up to Nottingham and get you rocking again. What followed was four months of rehearsing old songs Olley had written over the last five years, before the band recruited producer, Dan Austin (Massive Attack, Doves, Biffy Clyro) and recorded 9 tracks at the legendary Moles studio in Bath. This July sees the release of what is arguably seven s most accomplished album. Nine songs of pure drumming dynamite, feral guitars, and a string of songs dealing with the human condition and its broken dreams. It s a new start by a band that refuses to lie down and stop rocking. UK Dates: 22nd July Cardiff, Club Ifor Bach, 23rd Bristol, Louisanna, 24th London, Lexington, 25th Exeter, Cavern Club, 26th Manchester, Soundcontrol, 27th Nottingham, Rescue Rooms, 28th Leeds, Brudenell Social Club. Radio : Tracks already been played on 6Music where the album has been selected to be played. Selected spot plays on Radio 1 and 2 and XFM.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great comeback 8 July 2013
Format:Audio CD
I've been following these guys since they released their second album "The Closer You Get," which is their masterpiece. Unfortunately commercial success had eluded them, however with a loyal cult following they were still able to release some great albums over the years.
Now after 5 years they've reformed with a really solid line up, new edition is former Placebo drummer Steve Hewitt, who really brings this album up a notch, in fact the songs here are really strong and probably their most pop sounding record to date. Songs "Sympathy," "The Rise And Fall And Decline Of Everything," and "Crying" could all be potential singles with their classic pop hooks.

"Truce" is the centerpiece on this album, a slow intense burner that reaches a dynamic heavy crescendo - I can imagine this song sounding especially good live. Another song which I keep coming back to is "Colder," with it's poignant ending "But I won't ever give up." The whole feel of this album is one of confidence, the production, the musicianship, the songs. Everything seems to come together perfectly. If I was to nitpick I'd say the song "More" is slightly weaker than the rest of the album. But if you're a fan of Six By Seven I highly recommend this album, it's their best since "The Closer You Get."

5.0 out of 5 stars A must-have album 28 July 2013
Format:Audio CD
Nottingham does seem to be going through a musical renaissance at the moment; there are lots of interesting live bands and singers. Six by Seven are part of this scene, returning as they have with new band members, live gigs (including a Glastonbury appearance) and a tour, and this superb new album.

I saw Six by Seven live in Nottingham (27/07/13) and they were amazing, a true wall-of-sound experience in which they performed tracks from this album and several older songs from previous incarnations too. 'Fall Into Your Arms' is my personal favourite. To appreciate the power and energy of these songs you really need to see them live (Nottingham's Rescue Rooms venue had very good acoustics); failing that you need this album and a decent amp and speakers.

Turn it up!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Stonking Return! 23 Jun 2014
By Keith M TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I was very pleased to learn that Nottingham’s finest Six.By Seven had reformed in 2012, albeit with only Chris Olley and keyboardist James Flower from the band’s original line-up, and augmented (among others) with ex-Placebo drummer Steve Hewitt. But, I guess what I wasn’t (perhaps) quite expecting was for the band to produce such a stonking comeback album in 2013 as Love And Peace And Sympathy. OK, the band’s overall approach i.e. slow-build, with haunting melody and increasingly sonic power, hasn’t changed, but the collection of songs here is, for me at least, second only to 2000’s The Closer You Get.

It’s an album (historically, for me, like most Six.By Seven songs) that is a slow-burner and it would be easy to dismiss many of the songs here (Change, Sympathy, Truce, Standing In The Light, Fall Into Your Arms) with their 'mid-tempo’ pacing as sounding too 'samey’ to really work. But, once Olley’s mood-pieces, melodies and rather poetic (and apparently quite personal) lyrics get to work they reveal something that is increasingly intoxicating (with Truce almost reaching the heights of, for me the band’s greatest song, This Is Not A Love Song). And, although the album is likely to succeed (or otherwise) on the perceived strength of the aforementioned songs (as they make up the majority of the album), the remaining songs show the band do retain an impressive degree of versatility. The Rise And Fall And Decline Of Everything is shot through with Olley’s own (apparently) pessimistic take on superficiality, but shows the man can write as good a straight ‘indie song’ as anyone, Colder, from an amazingly innocuous beginning displays a level of intensity not heard by these ears since the likes of 'Closer’s’ My Life Is An Accident, whilst Crying is simply the band at their most succinct and powerful best.

An album that comes highly recommended – stick with it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant 6 Feb 2014

Every track's a winner, even more so together. My favourite must be "Standing in the Light" for its great engine-room sound.

4.0 out of 5 stars Six By Seven new album 1 Sep 2013
By mobsta
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Although it's been a long time with many other bands imitating their style, this album feels very fresh and totally up to date thanks to the production by Dan Austin. First track sets the tone for the rest which can become a little repetitive in places but overall a very good album.
