I don't know what mbv sounds like so i can't say anything about that 
comparison, but anyway.  I was at an Eric's Trip show that Sully and Sian 
both opened up at.  I thought that Sully were pretty good, though i do 
have to admit that you can make a vocal comparison between the 
cranberries and the singer.  If you look past that thought, Sully had 
nothing in common with typical alterna-rock, and i thought that having 
Sully and Sian open for ET was great.  I know that I liked that show a 
lot better than the all ages afternoon show that i saw earlier that day.  
Anyway, if people from ottawa don't like sully sucks to them.  I'm sure 
that i'll go see them next time they come through.
