i just feel like the vines are just perfect. i mean, i praise craig for doing what he does, concidering his i don't want to call it a disability, cuz it's not, but his minor issue. it just blows me away how amazing people can be, no matter what they do, where they come from or who they are. this band has words that changed my life and my point of view on things. i just wish i had friends to share this with, ya know?

Awh, yeah, I know that feeling all too well. Craig has such a beautiful soul and the way he expresses it through his music and melodies is just enchanting. I'm lucky, I converted my best friend into a Vines fan so I can talk to her about them but it always saddens me how hardly anyone knows who they are. They deserve so much more.

yes, however, i think that as i don't *know* the vines as people, only as musicians playing music, i have a feeling that they are comfortable with their fan base. it's not too over whelming to where they'd get mobbed wherever they went, but it's not small enough to say "why play anymore?" you know? and the fans they have love them so damn much. and i think that over powers anything!

That is very true, yeah. I think this way is good because they can go out and play shows and know their fanbase is loyal and understanding of their situation.

yes. i can't tell you how crazy my all time low show was. for being a poppy band with 14 year old girls screaming, the crowd was fairly RUDE. if people are there because of the music, they will not be acting like such animals, they'd just be greatful to be within 100 feet of an amazing artist.

To be honest, I came by The Vines in a rather odd way. I was searching Youtube and I came across Weird Al Yankovic's Angry White Boy Polka. I thought it was entertaining the way he lampooned and belittled Nu Metal in the song so I listened a couple of times. Then I started searching up these other artists in the video. The first one I looked up was The Strokes, which are still one of my all time favourite bands. And then I gradually got to The Vines' hit song Get Free which I was obsessed with for a month or so. Then I bought Highly Evolved and was completely blown away from the the diversity and versatility of The Vines' songwriting. The rest is history.

I got into them at the beginning of this year actually, Im a bit younger so I all but missed the hype they went through (the only thing I remember from then is "Ride")
Anyway, we got BDO '11 early, and one friend suggested we go watch The Vines, so we did, and the gig was amazing! It was something like 11am and I hardly knew anything about them, so seeing Craig get so into the music and just watching the band perform as whole was brilliant for me, and totally unexpected! They were my favourite show from that day, and I'd only every heard one of their songs! Watching the guitar get smashed up was pretty rad too haa Smile

Oh That`s soo cool Smile, I wish i could see them..ok, to be honest i started listening to them this year..and i got into them because of Alex Turner, yeah hahahah, I've read that Craig was an influence for him, so there was a while that i kept the band's name in my head..and one day that i didn't know what to listen to, i remembered them, and that was it, i completely lost my mind Razz

From the first time I heard Winning Days I became totally addicted..I have seen them play 12 times, and often have travelled to other parts of Aust for their shows.. I have a huge collection of their memorabilia from all around the world..But my most prize possesion in my collection is one of Craigs Guitars which is fully signed by all four band members and Slightly damaged, But..I know how that happend and I Wouldn't have it any other way Very Happy

The year was 2002, and i heard Get Free for the first time. I was instantly hooked. I went out and bought highly evolved, loved the whole album, and the rest is history.

One of my top 5 favourite bands for sure.

I wish they'd come and play in Canada sometime soon!

It was in 2002, I was 18, when I bought Highly Evolved. I fell in love with it ever since day one. The artwork, the music and the whole theme of the album. There was such an amazing feeling in the air around 2002 and 2003 when great bands like the vines and black rebel motorcycle were just coming out.

And now with Future Primitive the vines have totally blown me away once again!

I'm from Germany and there not many people know the Vines.
But in the end of 2007 I bought a game named Flatout 2 and one track on this game was Don't listen to the Radio.
I loved that song since the first time I heard it.
So I bought there best of album and loved it too.
Today I also have Melodia,Future Primitive and the other songs.
I hope they will play again in Germany some day.

It was in 2009, I was searching for a good band similar of The beatles on a website and The Vines was in the list, so I went on youtube to ear and I listen to Get Free, 1969 (live at bid day out, what a performance!) and the song who make me love The Vines so much was Winning Days ! Such a good song, then I immediatly buy Highly Evolved and Winning Days, since this time I listen to them all the time ! Very Happy

Same here! ... I was like 17 (I feel ooold haha) and after hearing Get Free on the radio I was hooked and got Highly Evolved, Get Free single, Outtathaway single CD 1 & 2, magazines, etc...

I think I'm less obsessive now haha but It´s been almost 10 years and they're still one of my favorite bands and love every album that they put out Smile

it was in 2002, back then I didn't really take notice of bands as such, but on one weekend, watching video hits and I saw "Get Free" for the first time. When it was finished I was pretty sad, I wanted to see it all over again and I promised myself "One day, I wanna play music like that" That was when I started remembering songs and band names so I could discover them a bit more later on. Now I got all 5 cds and got a few of my friends into them Smile (Mum still thinks Craig's a nutbag but I've told her he's off the bong now Razz )

I can't believe I was 13 when I first got into The Vines. Feel really old right now. Sad

I liked a band called "el bordo" before.
they made a video and put him in youtube, and someone commented that it was very similar to "ride" ... then i watch the video of ride and I found it are identical, and I became fan of the vines.

was in the 2008...
