hear one genre of music for the duration of the rest of your life what would it be?
i love gabba!
post-rock comes second
orchestral pop comes third.
now move! go on, get out! corruping the thread with talk of gabba...indeed.
what do you define as a genre?
:( -=sigh=- I'm going back to my essay.
I'd go for 'guitar music'
would cut out quite a bit of stuff, but under half of it, i reckon.
I am so musically ineducated and uncouth.
subgenre of Grebo?
'Radio 1's Steve Lamacq, then the scene's chief journalistic apologist, labelled the Mega City Four/Senseless Things, transit van-dwelling end of the spectrum "fraggle" after the insult, derived from Jim Henson programme Fraggle Rock, hurled by Harlow casuals at their unkempt, short-trousered enemies.
Nameless and shameless, the scene nevertheless had it's own uniform, although not of the kind any military organisation would recognise. It had it's own rituals; Carter concerts were prefaced with chants of "You fat bastard!" (aimed at the group's portly roadie/mascot John Beast). It even had it's own Popstars-style televisual wannabes in FMB, the lamentable subjects of Channel 4's The Next Big Thing (they weren't).
Never deemed "important" - Factory and Creation never tried snapping up the key players - this scene was nonetheless crucial in re-energising such mucky musical arenas as the fleapit gigging circuit, Reading Festival and the indie disco. '
Plus everything this:
Post Impromtu Spazzcore
loves the zutons everyone! point and laugh!
to one genre for any length of time. I'd just get sick of it. Variety is the spice of life!
that doesn't answer the question. stop dodging it!
Catch, Marion, menswear, speedy, elevator suite
...you know the score
Speedy! Another daaaay in the life of riley...
its the new SlowCore
The washes of guitar noise would soothe away my pain at not being able to listen to Shed Seven anymore.
or failing that, British dance bands of the 1930s
get it right Anschul.
or "alternative" always means a crazy amount of genres
you're ruining my thread.
funk. with loads of slap-bass. there.
of DartMoorCore. Who wants to touch me?
If someone is actually able to define what a genre is one day, then I may be able to give an answer.
