they just yell and play random guitar noises. they just smell
...but there IS a problem with Blood Red Shoes in that they have no tunes to speak of. They make a fine racket and all, but there is nothing to get hold of. Drummer boy's previous band Cat On Form had exactly the same problem - they hit all the right buttons, but there was nothing there beneath it.
they def got some tunes...
and she def got some looks
because its got a catchy tune... so there!
but there are at least two tracks that BRS have that are FUCKING TUNES. I don't remember what they are but I'm fairly sure ADHD wasn't one of them.
is very catchy indeed
BRS didn't do it for me at all.
Comanechi are ridiculously good. One of the funnest things around.
There's one vaguely catchy guitar riff, but I just don't get why people are so into them. Great performance but nothing sticks in my head at all after seeing them. And to be honest, Pre didn't impress me either.
barbarian. philistine. pagan. bashi-bazouk. vegetarian.
but listening to their mp3s at home are a bit 'meh'.
what's the one where the chorus is something like "65 1.1!"
stitch me back?
Just wait 'til you all hear the new version of 'You Bring Me Down' which is out via DiS Digital Singles Club on November 20th.
Decide for yourselves:
they smell ?
I like their music a lot !
Seen them twice.
He definitely does NOT smell.
And they have some corking tunes, so there. I can't help but sing "I'm so I'm so distracted" all the bloody time.
blood red shoes. the only band to ever add my myspace. geddin'
are a fool.
I smite thee.
you should be reading something that interests you.
It was late when I posted this, that explains the "smell" part, but I still stand by my opinion on their music.
they'll be devestated.
Meet your new clothes.
They have been revealed as the sham that they are, oh my gosh how foolish we all look, what idiots we have been. Thank you for opening our eyes!
And that trowel too while you're about it.
If you don't like the music of Blood Red Shoes then that's up to you. But, why present your dislike of them as a reaction to a supposed hype? Music is liked, disliked or has no effect or the listener.
Only idiots are interested in hype, whether they are idiots who are doing the hyping or those you are responding to it negatively.
Further, to criticise a band's style of music is an admission of your own limted tastes. Such an attitude is incompatible with an interest in music.
They should bookmark this thread on http://www.catonform.co.uk/bloodredshoes/reviews.htm
people not used to traynor + traynor = humour
Save all this shit for a band who deserves it, BRS don't.
a hard-working unpretentious band with a handful of solid singles on teeny labels.
i don't see how they could possibly impinge on your conciousness unless you wanted it that way.
They are a great little band who play great catchy songs. They're not being forced down your throat like the fucking Killers.
wouldent say theyre bad though
says it all really
Oh and BRS are good.
i couldnt take my eyes off him.
and yeah, the girl is hot.
Fastest backlash ever...
Its ok they are gonna come back from this.
first time I'd seen them properly in a while, and it reminded me how fun they are. It's just fun honest pop songs played well and with sincerity. I can't imagine either of them moaning about a soundcheck or what they're wearing either.
To be honest, I find it very difficult to see what's offensive about them. The only explanation I can think of is the fact that DIS, various indie sites / scenes / clubs / promoters have, in the past few months gone a bit crazy over them. Making them seem a bit overrated in many ways. That has got nothing to do with them, so you should just treat the band on their own individual merit.
The haters - you're so predictable.
we hate that.
I was thinking of The Blood Arms. No wonder i could make head 'ner tail of the comments.
The ludicrous part being that haters are always desperate to jump on the latest 'hate' bandwagon in much the same way as the hype bandwagon-jumpers!
"I was first to hate The Darkness!!"
"No I was!"
"I was first to hate Franz Ferdinand"
"I hated them before you'd even heard of them!"
it's only Blood Red Shoes. They played to about forty people at a FREE gig on Saturday. get with it.
now go away. please.
