Hello everyone! My name is Kathy and I'm new to the forums, after a couple weeks of lurking and FINALLY coming across the "ATTN LURKERS / NEW REGISTRATIONS" sticky.

I went shopping one day at American Eagle (didn't buy anything though) and they were playing Gimme Sympathy's music video in the back. I remembered a line, found it on Google. If that didn't happen...I might not be here now :lol: I wasn't a big fan of Metric then, just liked a few of their songs and browsed through a few on youtube. Never got to downloading anything except for Gimme Sympathy.

The real obsession started after I heard Gold Guns Girls near a construction site one day when some dudes were blasting it from their radio. I remembered that it was by Metric and started actually listening to more of their music, and I don't think I've touched a pop song from then on. :D I also got tickets to see them in Toronto, hooray!

Did similar things happen to any of you? Not being able to listen to anything but Metric for extended periods of time?

My name is Steph and I am also new to the forums. I basically discovered Metric through figuring out the BSS family tree last summer, and getting into all of the bands related to it.

My dad.
He put Monster Hospital, Dead Disco, and Succexy on my old iPod in 2006 and for some reason I was really drawn to Monster Hospital... I dunno... my fave bands at the time were The Killers and The YYYs and my dad said I should be listening to more Canadian music 'cause his fave band is BSS.
And I've effing loved Metric since!!!

Wait til you end up listening to rairites, like the Mainstream EP or Emily's Cut In Half And Also Double, or especially her solo albums. (Most of the songs can be found on youtube I think, maybe not all of CIHAAD.)

Nah I get that. I love Mainstream EP so darn much.

Into Emily's solo stuff at all though ? ;D That's the most brilliant of allll Metric related things. Well, in my opinion... =P

I do love Emilys solo stuff as well, Doctor Blind and The Bank are probably my favourites.

On Knives, I really liked Our Hell first, but I do like Doctor Blind, Reading In Bed and The Last Page a lot. The Bank is my favorite off of WIFTAGH.

Our Hell was the first song I learnt on Piano.

I'm jealous of all your Piano skills. I can play Reading In Bed on Clarinet... :D
