"Johnny's shadow's gettin' longer but he keeps on singin'."
any instrumentals yet?
I hate them.
I hate him especially.
Did you see the stylish kids in the riot
We were shovelled up like muck
Set the night on fire
Wombles bleed truncheons and shields
You know I cherish you my love
But there's a rumour spread nasty disease around town
Caught round the houses with your trousers down
A headrush in the bush
You know I cherish you my love
Oh how i cherish you my love
"Wombles bleed truncheons and shields"?
think that for a second as i cut and pasted.
it always says "wombles bleed, truncheons and shields" so I assume that is the lyric but I think there's a comma in the middle. I don't think he's actually suggesting that if you cut a womble truncheons and shields come out instead of blood.
perhaps they would bleed truncheons and shields. Them and the other things that the everyday folk leave behind.
It's a silly lyric either way.
not picking up litter
"I met a girl, she asked me my name. I told her what it was". Especially when he sings it as though it's the most profound thing ever.
I actually really like the "come back to me" section of "(Don't Go Back) To Dalston". The lyric is hardly brilliant on its own but, when sung repeatedly with desperation, it's actually pretty effective.
and I knew that'd be your favourite lyric...
Much as I'm taking the piss, I genuinely do enjoy hearing the song.
A quite good song. I'll join you there.
"And now your sheets are dirty
The streets are dirty too"
This lyric makes me want to killer man.
This thread depressed me.
q quote of their new album being the best 'guitar' album since definately maybe is the wrongest thing ever said. it's wrong on every conceivable level.
I've started noticing that every time I comment negatively about Oasis I get one or two irate PMs from their fans. Never the less - That Razorlight advert is even wronger when you consider that it suggests that Definitely Maybe is in any way a good guitar album.
Led Zepellin made good guitar albums. Oasis do pub-rock.
Although I'd actually sooner listen to someone else entirely.
[denigrates your musical taste]
Any notions of me having credibility and/or a decent taste in music went out the window a long, long time ago.
[denigrates your mum... but not her sexual ability]
You must not be a fan of anything indie-rock based post '95 if you write of Def Maybe.
Why can't we all love eachother? Zep AND Oasis were fucking fantastic bands.
are a beast of a band. oasis had their moments, for what they were. but to claim the new razorlight and def maybe are the two best 'guitar' albums of the last 12 years is a crime against humanity. even taking into account their unbelievably limited definition oif guitar music, what of the bends, ok computer, grace, or any other actually good mainstream 'guitar' album since the mid nineties. it's just further proof that Q is an atrocity, whose continued existence mystifies, perplexes and infuriates.
Oasis made 2 decent albums in about 3 years. Led Zeppelin have been consistently excellent over 10 or 20 years, depending on your opinion. They've certainly created much better music than Oasis.
Led Zeppelin more or less flogged the same pony over 10 years. Yeah they had some slight changes, but they don't get half the shit Oasis do for being samey.
As for claiming its the 'best guitar album...', that happens every year with something. I bet they called Is This It the same, alongside Highly Evolved and Get Behind Me Satan.
You've just got to get used to how shit the media is.
That's because back in the day Led Zep style was innovative. Having a singer that could sing and musicians that could play helped too. That kind of quality aids innovation.
Oasis' problem stems from the fact that despite forming on the eve of the 21st century, they play music that is not innovative. The musicians that make up the band are not the best in their field. Their singer can't really hold a note. All they had going for them were "anthems" that bought to mind hits by bands that existed 30 years previous and the "attitude" which quickly becomes tiresome.
In other words, Oasis aren't doing anything new, so why bother listening to them?
the massive majority of the bands that I love listening to at the moment.
Interpol, Franz Ferdinand, The Strokes, Death Cab for Cutie, Ryan Adams, Bright Eyes, Trail Of Dead.
None of it is completely original or new, but its fucking good.
every led zep album shows a significant development from the last, except maybe for at the end when they got lazy.
but I accidently deleted it.
'yes i completely agree in every sense. congrats.'
'Yeah they had some slight changes, but they don't get half the shit Oasis do for being samey'
Zep kept on devolping their sound. Zep 1 is miles apart from say Zep3, or Zep4.
oasis releasing a double album where every song shows real variation and brilliant songwriting... and 5 albums into their career
Oasis only have 3 songs:
The big tear-jerker
The big "aren't we hard" swaggering songs.
The one which doesn't quite know which one it is.
The Zep made Physical Graffiti. End of debate.
Led Zep had Jimmy Page, John Paul Jones and John Bonham in the band.
Now the debated is ended.
Whilst they've got Cast No Shadow, they've got Little By Little. Don't Look Back in Anger, Live Forever, Who Feels Love.
The fact is: Led Zeppelin are superb.
Oasis are also superb. People choose not to recognise it, because they absolutely HATE everything Oasis stand for.
and it's nowhere near as good as I remembered. But "Don't Look Back in Anger" is a brilliant song (as indeed is "Live Forever")
they're just inherently average. so average that i can't even be bothered to hate. giving little by little as an example of something comparable to led zep doesnt work for me.
taking quotes out of context / misquoting me aren't you?
He listed the '3 Oasis songs', and they are to what I was referring.
"in the morning you know you won't remember a thing"
the Razorlight gig I went to. So "ner"!
Iron Man's sick of being Tony Stark
And the Silversurfer's lost his silver heart
You can see my secret identity

hating everything oasis stand for
They don't stand for anything. It's wrong by default.
Clouds in the sky? A novel concept.
"Not I" is grammatically erroneous. "Not me" is better.
"I'm johnny english yes I am
I am the best I am the man
