I'm well going.
I like the klaxons. I imagine datarock would be quite fun live too.
were great when i saw them live at fabric, tis a very good line up by the NME.
Oh fuck right off.
I would like to go to this, though it just screams Hoxton really. And Peaches is that night.
There's a full article on 'The Change of Scene'.
I thought it was a parody at first.
Having a laugh? I can't beleive it's that popular. I don't want the general sale lottery.
way to kill 3 bands already.
oh, the NME, you do make me smile.
They make such a loud noise - good for scaring bears.
now you've put the whole station in jeopardy.
they can smell the menstruation
whats the klaxons album like anyone?
That's all you get. For now. I know I shouldn't get so excited but this band make me WET.
live band. I reckons. I lvoes them. And I would quite like to see if Datarock piss me off live as much as the album did.
Shitdisco can fuck right off though.
Although I have been meaning to check them out.
Seen them live a couple of times now, each time has been absolutley mental. It helps that they play each song at such an increased pace. "The Bouncer" is one of the finest opening songs you could wish to hear at a gig.
But the album left me cold. I gave it 4/10. Or rather, some reviewer fella gave it 4/10. Pfft.
And NME will obviously look for any tedious link to make a genre out of two bands that like to smile and dance a bit.
Good work piggy.
are amazing. fuck yer mum.
to put out a single normal record buyers in the rest of the country can buy yet?
but i bought it off their label's site. and there were still copies the week after it was officially 'released'.
The idea makes me want to slap children in the face. It's at the Koko, right? It probably finishes at 10pm so Club NME can go on.
is gonna last about 2 weeks. The 'scne' might be over by the time this tour actually takes place...fuckin hell. Skint Records will be doing a tour next, in that nostalgia like way that New Romantic 80's bands are seemingly endlessly plodding about on.
The only difference is that it won't be in stadiums but in grotty satellite town nightclubs instead....
Klaxons, ShitDisco and Datarock....hot damn! They sound like fuckin parodies of what an internet fanbase driven band would be named. This whole thing is so fuckin 'current' that no actual substance seems to be required.
For any soul who actually mourns TOTP, there's no need. The NME tastesetters will have you changing your mind about your new favourite band as quickly as the download chart changes these days anyway. Is there any difference between putting on a once-a-week snapshot show and what the NME secretes on a weekly basis. Bollocks to all this, i'm off to listen to Underworld.....
a fucking multiple entity?
he's just quite perceptive
if you were a regular, we might have swallowed the rant. this kind of makes us cunts.
I would have only not done that if it was Prole_Art_Threat. Because he would have DESTROYED me.
But the name seemed familair anyway. Sorry if I caused offence or tainted your view of DiS but your whole post is undermined by the fact the Klaxons rulez.
5 months remaining on their "anyone giving a shit about them" tenure...
who cares AT ALL about longevity?
I'll walk away knowing i'm fighting a loosing battle with this one. Still, i stand by my opinion...
Thanks for the lively banterand i'll try to post more regularly and in more positive manner (where applicable!)
If people stopped being so scenster/anti scenster about music then it may be enjoyed with less preconceptions or self-awareness. Its my number one gripe about being in to music. Ill admit I myself doubt stuff that I might like from time time, and im sure everybody knows what im on about. Isnt it always been the same thoughâ€¦.for example if you â€˜saidâ€™ you were a real â€˜punkâ€™ at the time it would have been uncool to be into some thimg that retrospectively may be amazing â€¦like Buzzcoks or something. Personally I like klaxons and they referance something that holds fond memories and there kind of anti neck neck-a-chief, so good for them. Does any of that make sense!?! im a bit srtonedâ€¦. i still go raving
agree i think the klaxons are a pile of shit.
He talks a lot of sense to be honest.
but no need to be so abrasive, and more importantly - why does it matter if the 'scene' is gone in two weeks? scenester types will have fun while it lasts, and people who genuinely like the music will go on liking it.
I know nothing about Shitdisco and Datarock, but in regards to Klaxons, it isn't as if they are jumping on the bandwagon of "the scene". If there is a bunch of bands "pioneering a scene" (I hate myself for saying such thing, but you get the jist), then why should they be vilified about it if NME want to put them on tour and big them up? It is the NME's job to make the public aware of such trends as the largest selling weekly music publication. If they see something they can market they will do. To me the Klaxons are refreshing. The whole 'nu-rave' thing I cannot stand, the whole bandwagin that goes with it I cannot stand. But it is here for the next few weeks/months wether we like it or not. And excynic sums it up perfectly in his final sentence.
wasn't long ago they did there crappy little features on panic, academy is and fall out boy. all will be forgetten soon when, I don't know, they latch onto Metronomy or something. It'll come.
