Blood on the Wall?
Name some others, go on...
who did Suicide rob? im not doubting it, i just dont know.
I guess just in the riffs and stuff they used, overly-simple repetitive sub-stooges rock n roll type stuff.
it was full of rock and roll references, but i reckon if suicide are derivative, most bands are too.
with joy division i was referring to the brian eno track that they based their entire career on (3rd Uncle).
Have you been smoking crack?
Panic! at the Disco
The Young Knives
& pretty much every half-decent rock n roll band of the last 6 years.
they did a great little thing on Swedish TV a few weeks back;
there's a music program called Musikbyrån that celebrated its tenth anniversary a month ago by having an entire evening's schedule and one of the highlights was the Hives in the studio doing a medley of their favourite songs on the last decade - it was class, especially the bit where they did 65 Mafia's 'Gotta stay Fly'
they also did a rather fine rendition of List of Demands
But their second album had no good songs on it, and their live show lost it's frantic energy and became over-practiced.
but I like their sense of humour and Pelle's rampant white-boy theft of James Brown's stage attitude
I taped the whole Musikbyrån night - I should youTube some stuff - the showed the entire The Knife concert from Copenhagen as well
and loads of other good stuff - like Thom Yorke being nearly beaten up by redneck bouncers in Atlanta while being denied access to his own Radiohead aftershow party
Maybe good rather than great, though.
In the best way possible.
The Beatles 1960-1963
2006 has been my year of getting back into the rock and roll.
Some of their songs are just better than JAMC.
Some a lot more than others though.
Maybe I should have put "heavily derivative" in the title or something...
I wasn't trying to disrespect your thread! :D
