At the Vodaphone Live Music Awards!
think 'we' played with them somewhere -well done!
still unsigned. it's criminal! Hopefully this will give them the boost they need
single on monday
what are you trying to suggest?? ;)
thank you world.
That's good news
that the so-long-awaited album will be pushed back...
find them a little....er...boring live?
but they really can't afford to be any more quietly euphorically exciting or people would, like, DIE at their shows.
now hopefully. I've ordered mine so I want it on 23rd or else!
Anyone else going to ULU next week to see them?
This proves it.
werent that good when i saw them. that was like two years ago, but still...
the band weren't good when he saw them.
2 years ago !
Then that's what he thinks of them!?
And besides, I agree. I've seen em a few times and they're just....plain. Nothing to warrant the amount of excitement shown on this board anyway.
Maybe I caught them on three bad days...
You're just WRONG.
Oh - OK. Just for our information, then?
What was your point in this post?
'New Rhodes won an award. I like them'.
Thanks. Just for our information, then?
I think there are a few people who might have gleaned something more from this thread than an insight into my feelings about New Rhodes. Namely, the fact that they won an award! Some people on here have expressed their interest above!
REGRET your last post! :D
Was stating whether people think they deserve it or not. This is what happens on a forum. A topic is started and then discussed. It's a very simple concept.
Surely, the point of your post was to invoke a discussion.....?
Straight back atchya, err..Cleopatra. :D
I was just trying to get him to elucidate on "this band weren't that good". He was hinting at not believing New Rhodes deserved the award and I wanted him to just say it! It's a bit dull to just put "this band weren't that good". Not really discussion, is it? But if you consider that discussion, then fair enough.
And as Lyle pointed out - he said it was two years ago that he saw NR live. A lot could have changed since then. So really the comment was just a bit vague. that's all I was getting at.
rather than the definitive statement on the issue
I wasn't going to force him... I was just enquiring. Why so awkward??
Apart from The Young Knives and Boy Kill Boy, New Rhodes played 9actually supported) my band two years ago.
BITTER IS NOT THE WORD.
the foggies were much better. SERIOUSLY! so.... sort it out Bobby!! y'know
who actually nominates people for this, and how?
I mean, I'm sure if they just opened it up to everyone, there'd be thousands of nominations, because there are so many bands with just a few dedicated fans...
I dunno, I'm rambling, but....who else was up for it, and how did they get nominated?
ok, to save you the trouble of finding the inferences for yourself, i'll add them in.
this band werent that good when i saw them (so based on that, i dont think they really deserve this, given that there are lots of bands that are unsigned that have been good when ive seen them). that was two years ago (so they may have improved since then), but still... (the fact that theyve failed to do anything of note since then suggest that they havent really improved).
but people win awards without good reason quite often, so it wouldnt be fair to use that as evidence.
The stuff I've heard by these guys was just limp two chord indie drek...that doesn't even sound like it would have been good in 2004, when their record SHOULD have come out
Am I missing something?
is your mum in the band?
it has no right to be good, granted.
but it fucking well is.
