Weren't The Departure supporting Graham when I saw his gig in Hammersmith Palais in 2004 or 2005? My recollection of them was that of a quite showy band...

I feel like JJ72 were doomed from the start, they were promoted as travis version 2, but then again so were coldplay and they turned out pretty well

Not bad, but I preferred YY28.

They were well promoted, so when people say 'underrated' that's not true, they had quite a lot thrown at them but for some reason they didn't stick/resonate with a large crowd. The singer screeched a little too much for me, if that was toned down maybe they would have been more mainstream but that's purely speculation. I might be wrong but I remember the bassist wanted out of the band pretty quickly and didn't want the fame, so yeah throw loads of cash at a band that didn't want to be famous and what are you going to get
