14 years ago

Postby Nicky » Wed Jul 20, 2016 7:22 pm

Pounding was released as a single 14 years to the day on Friday. Where has the time gone?!

Maybe it was just me, but I was disappointed the single only got to #21 in the singles chart, I thought it deserved better, should have been massive. Though the radio did play it to death!

I keep meaning to post these flashback type posts on the site but life as usual has a habit of getting in the way. Despite the lack of posts on the forum of late, which is understandable. The DMB site still averages 150-200 hits per day which is amazing really considering I haven't updated the site in so long. Most likely helped by the fact when you do a search for Doves music/band you will end up here and not the official site.

Cheers to all that keep stopping by! Hope everybody is well.

I thought exactly the same. With the big success they had with There Goes The Fear I was sure Pounding would top that and become an even bigger hit for them. It did deserve to be a Number 1 record for the lads, baffles me to this day that it stalled midway in the charts. Ah well, still a beast of a tune.

No, sadly. Although now when you visit you see this now:

"Forbidden

Additionally, a 403 Forbidden error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request."

Still sad, but not as bad as seeing some weird Japanese website about fish or whatever it was.

Actually, the official site was moved to dovesofficial.com

Of course it has not been updated since doves.net was lost.
