Bookmarks: Some stuff to read on the internet - Harvey's Rabbit

Teenage Kicks remembers Harvey's Rabbit, and wonders what became of them:

[S]uddenly they were the darlings of the NME. The future looked rosy. Then the syndrome kicked in with a vengeance. Two singles and two years later, they finally made an LP, The New Spiritual Vacuum, which the NME (again) characterized as 'a timeless, zeitgeist-free world of scruffy suits and grey skies; of marginally fierce attitude and chipper, slightly chummy tunes shot through with deadpan grace.'
And that, apparently, is all she wrote: their website still lists that LP as a new release, twelve years on.
