that Gomez are going to split soon. Inside gossip that is.
damn you right to hell. :p
are one of the worst bands of all time. That's just a fact. Try and argue. You can't, can you? That's because they're all shitcunts. Especially the fat one who thinkgs he's Blind Lemon Pie. Mwahahahahaaaaa! Die, fat student scum, die!
well I LIKE THEM. I don't need to construct a fancy argument. Music is subjective; I know what I likes, and I likes Gomez. bamos is with me!
transcends all boundaries. I've stopped WARS with it. You just turn up and play "Bring It On" really loud and all warring sides stop killing each other and jump on the first bus to the nearest University's Music Department.
I saw them play the other week it was good. so ner ner to you :P
I hate my own face too.
i like you too.
I like the way your body looks
Yeah, youre an object!
this board has been fun for a change.
they're not exactly a band that ask for it, I don't know where on earth it comes from. They were overhyped years ago I guess.
Gomez needed a gimmick, maybe uniforms or a wheelchair or something?
that they're inextricably linked to stereotypical students. And everybody fucking hates students.
i never really linked them to students, i only really got in to them 'in our gun' era though. Surely if they all wandered around dressing up in stupid ways (like so many bands do) they would be more 'studentyyy'
No they don't need a gimmick, they're very talented musicians and genuine people. Gimmicks are for bands that can't hold peoples attention by sheer musical talent alone.
they're pasty faced students ripping off delta blues?
it's okaaaaaaaaaay, but i never feel any need to listen to it.
but i pretty much agree with what poor_thing said up there ^^
He went to my school. I just found him on here!
in fact i think i'll go and 'rate' them on my profile, just you watch me!
They were certainly pushed very hard in the beginning as the saviours of music, which they clearly weren't.
But since then they've just sort of withered away without any fuss.
they are eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeewwwwwww
but yet they got played ad-infinitum. Dunno.
A lot of people I've met who knew them said they were annoying/arseholes/etc. so maybe it's just that a bunch of people felt that way who wrote for music mags and stuff?
After all, why did Shed Seven deserve to be slated like they always are? WHY?
this is what pisses me off.
I don't really care too much, I'm not saying they're the best band of all time, they just were bloody great at one point, mainly - at glastonbury 99 with the sun setting on the other stage when I was 12. Though their set at V a few months back was pretty good too.
i just can't be bothered with them
they're the band equivalent of beige....
Where did you hear this inside gossip?
their nephew is hired in to play further percussion in the band.
It's a great album, didn't get into the 2nd one and kinda tuned out after that.
I always found it funny that they were critised for being anorak clad students playing blues styled indie and then The Coral come along steal their schick and get prasied for it. (In the music press anyway)
