The Vines

The Vines

Let’s get this out of the way, because it’s not something we’re too fond of doing. To those of you who bought the issue of NME dated July 23, 2002, please accept our sincerest and most unreserved apologies. Some of you may remember this...

The Vines: Vision Valley

The Vines: Vision Valley

When Craig Nicholls was diagnosed with Asperger’s Syndrome back in November 2004 it prompted a rather queer week in NME Letters central. Sympathetic Vines fans, unable to locate an address for darling Craig, sent in get-well cards and in one...

The Vines: Don’t Listen To The Radio

The Vines: Don’t Listen To The Radio

They’re back! The band who inspired the Arctic Monkeys (fact!) return, sadly sans dreamboat bassist Patrick Matthews but with Craig Nicholls back to the full songwriting fitness of ‘Get Free’. Unofficially on the net (for about a week) prior...

Vines : Winning Days

Well, sting my ring with a McApple Slice, what is everybody’s problem with Vines? Did I miss the meeting of the Grand Order Of Fickle Rock Hackery where Craig Nicholls gave a lecture entitled ‘Why All Your Mums Are Slags’? If you ask me,...

Vines : Winning Days

Vines’ debut, 2002’s ‘Highly Evolved’, is a great record, a bona fide rock’n’roll classic. Up there with Oasis ’ ‘Definitely Maybe’ and Strokes’ ‘Is This It’. A record that galvanised music and announced the arrival of a...

Vines : London Charing Cross Road Astoria

When The Vines take to the stage tonight you can hear a pin drop. Not literally, obviously - it's a cacophony of hero-worship screaming - but metaphorically a thousand ears are straining to get every note out of a gig that has an awful lot...

Vines  : Seattle Moore Theater

Vines : Seattle Moore Theater

Minutes after George Bush announces the start of hostilities in Iraq, The Vines kick off a campaign of their own in the trigger-happy president's homeland. It's just the band's second gig in six weeks and, frankly, they're a little rusty. In...

The Vines/The Bandits : Birmingham Academy

The Vines/The Bandits : Birmingham Academy

Craig Nichols has an announcement to make. Er, except it's less of an announcement than a petulant belch. "Fuck 'Factory'" he mumbles from under his fucked-up mop of hair. Eh? 'Factory' was the song that first brought The Vines unique gifts to...
