The Seahorses, the band that John Squire went to after the Stone Roses broke up, anyone here familiar with them? Are they worth looking into?

I've, um, 'sampled' a few tracks by them, one of which was great and one of which was pretty bland, but have not found much out there by which to form a solid opinion and don't want to plunk down the money for an import unless I can be reasonably sure they're worth listening to.

Anyone?

Haven't heard anything by them for ages.

If you are a huge John Squire fan it might be worth checking out but otherwise probably not. I really liked the Stone Roses but I never bothered buying anything by the Seahorses.

I had their first album on cassette. It was ok if you like Second Coming era Stone Roses, but hardly spectacular in any way. There were some cool guitar riffs though.

I'm pretty sure they only ever put out one album, I just wasn't sure if it was worth shelling out for.

I didn't mind Second Coming. Obviously, it wasn't what most people were looking for from the Stone Roses, but I thought it had a lot of solid stuff on it, taken by itself. Squire's playing was always my main attraction to the Roses anyway.

I believe he just put out a solo album not too long ago as well, though I've not heard anything from it.

I just realized that if you include the word 'the' with 'seahorses', another anagram you can make is 'he hates roses'.

I must be bored.
