Untitled[edit]

This page was listed on Wikipedia:Votes for deletion in May, 2004. The result of that discussion was to keep the article. For an archive of the discussion, see Talk:The Herd/Delete.


I removed this segment from the article:

A different band "The Herd", featuring Peter Frampton and Andy Bown (later of Status Quo), existed in the 1960s.

I don't know enough about this group to decide whether it should be a footnote on one of the above linked pages, or warrants its own article. -- Chuq



i just deleted info under the heading "singles" that said "we get around" is a herd single. this is not true, urthboy, a member of the group, created this track totally independant of the other artists and although the initial author referenced this fact, by placing urthboy in brackets after the fact, it still has no place here i feel, such information clearly belongs on a seperate page pertaining to urthboy, a link to which placed on this page.

removed links[edit]

I removed the reference to "Coal to Coast jobs" website in "Controversy" section. I don't think this is relevant to the article, and is separate to the festival. Kathodonnell (talk) 01:54, 18 February 2011 (UTC)

sleek geeks show song[edit]

I changed this entry "Recently the group performed a song about recycled water on the ABC's Sleek Geeks." to specify the dates to make the article clearer as "recently" reflected time of article creation (perhaps?) rather than an enclyclopedia entry. references below. note some are forums/blogs, but they reflect the date of the episode & link The Herd to this episode. ABC Sleek Geeks website also lists final episode "Water" airing on 7th February 2008, though it doesn't refer to The Herd specifically.

post by superciliousness "It was fun to watch Sleek Geeks tonight and have The Herd put together a track on reverse osmosis and the recycling of waste water. Quite silly. Brilliant." 06 Feb 2008

summerland album announcement[edit]

I've reworded this section, to remove the part about the announcement. the album has been released, which I think is more important information. the announcement section (I think) makes the article sound more like a press release, so removing this part to stick to the facts for WP entry. keep the original text here in case someone disagrees/would like to revert. I've kept the references.

In March 2008 the Herd announced that it was releasing its fourth studio album, Summerland, in May, 2008. The first single from the album "The King is Dead" makes reference to Australia's change in government with John Howard being replaced after 11 years as Prime Minister by Kevin Rudd.[1] In an interview with Triple J, Rok Poshtya advised:

'We just finished recording the new album on Saturday. So we're mixing it for the next three weeks. And it should be out like April, May. And we'll have a song to various radio stations that matter in March hopefully.'[2]
