Because i think deyz GUD.
aomething like www.myspace.com/wearetheapronfamily or something.
Would you like them if they were dressed like NME clone kiddies (ie. shaggy hair, blazers, drainpipes etc.)?
If you or Thommo had found out they dressed like Razorlight and the NME liked them, I bet my shoes you wouldn't like them as you do.
from what i can see on their myspace, they wear jeans and tshirts, like nme bands do
you're actually stupid.
Its like wishpig music. Its only appreciated because its so bad.
Would you invest money in them, thommo?
And i happen to like quite a few bands NME likes, thanks. i don't even know what they look like 'cos my computer hates Myspace (and i don't blame it).
i could, by the same reasoning, ask if you'd be so reactionary to them if i hadn't endorsed them.
Yeah. The only reason I think they're shit is because you like them.
Don't flatter yourself.
but i'm still not so sure you'd be so swift to jump on them as "wishpig music" if somebody else recommended them.
ps. i have shaggy hair, blazers and drainpipe trousers.
seeing as you gave them a chance and all.
wishpig music, i tell you. It doesn't sound like Less Than Jake at all.
yeah, sorry man- I checked out two of their tracks on Myspace...that chaotic shouting/unmelodic thing is a bit 'now' and it doesn't float my boat really...too much like style over substance
i like it.
And style is there for a reason, i.e. to be stylish, but i'm not basing me liking them on that, as i still don't know what they look like.
I don't know what they look like either.
What I meant was their music is empty, lacking in substance, and is just a posturing racket made by post ironic twat scenesters- or at least sounds like it.
Its all concept and no talent.
Maybe they put on a good live show, I don't know...
agree, i dont mind this however.http://www.myspace.com/thewombatsuk.
If i am, perhaps misguidedly, relating 'no talent' with 'they can't play' or somesuch. Or even 'can't they write a nice song'?
Anyway. i like them. You don't. Let's leave it as that, i have peanur butter on toast to eat.
yeah, its cool I didn't want to bicker about it...really...
However, the no talent thing I was on about referred to their 'songwriting' skills, not their musicianship. If they were playing good material in that ramshackle way, it would be cool as fuck, but they aren't...
sometimes i want 'proper' bands writing 'proper' songs and sometimes i want bands to just make an excellent racket.
is what i think Aprons do.
aah fair enough...put like that- I still don't like it, but I do have bands that do that for me...
they are that good. That "Pretty Little Head" song just sounds annoying, and the riff in "Drive By Fruiting" has been done before a bit too much. They do sound a bit too much now, it's all a bit irritating. Live, they may be rather entertaining but on record it seems like this will only be put in the limited listening pile.
but really nothing new or exciting...
But it's just me !
You're in The Aprons?
as they were causing so much debate.
I wish I hadn't.
to be honest.
Not that i posted it just to irk you or anything.
Or maybe i did and i'm bluffing.
Or maybe YOU SUCK.
Or maybe i suck?
Or maybe we all suck. Collectively.
Really? I was just about to type how they reminded me of Bearsuit, only even more shit.
I admit, I thought they might be good, 'cos Wrightylew doesn't like them, sadly I'm with him on this one...they are fucking rubbish
