Just added this lot on MySpace. What an amazing, amazing band! Lyrically sharp as a lemon shark!
'whats ryu out of streetfighter 2 favourite english dish?'
punchline: Hadouk-en chips!
I thought it was pronounced hai-ouk-en. God know how many years I have been saying the wrong thing!
it's definitely that d that's the bone of contention.
They're ok. I always put 'that boy/that girl' on before a night out.
great live too
people seem a bit more positive towards them now. first time i mentioned them here they got slated.
but you're a fan of/summat to do with 586, so you and i would mostly be singing from the same hymn sheet anyway, as 586 are the most awesome thing evah.
about nothing in common though, apart from perhaps the cheap-sounding keyboard.
Their frontman rips off JME in a big way. Except his lyrics are terrible. Seriously, SO FUCKING TERRIBLE I WANT TO STRIKE HIM.
Fucking ANNOYING. Go listen to something GOOD.
and he spends a lot of time cramming words into lines that aren't big enough for them.
'went to a gig but nobody danced. everybody was far too cool. all the kiddies, they just stood there. is it the same at the public school?'
is a decent lyric, for me.
10/10 for metronomy, by the way.
To me they're a couple of trendy kids ripping of Grime in a vaugley ironic way, which is somewhat offensive.
They make me angry.
it seems like they're genuinely passionate about it. oh well.
when I saw them.
the irony is in the fact that their indie kids taking the piss out of indie kids in their lyrics, they dont take the piss out of grime, in fact i think they do it pretty well!
that everything people who are perceived to be 'indie/trendy kids' do is somehow 'ironic' - as if no-one on the indie scene can possibly have passion or emotion without adding some kind of superficial or jokey layer to it.
it strikes me as a bit odd.
seen a few bands within the last few weeks on a similar 'scene' and its all been a bit too jokey, but i think hadouken have a bit of aggression in them, i mean theyre not just utter pisstakes
i would agree with what you're saying. to a certain extent they seemed to mean what they were saying, which makes them more appealing to me than someone like bolt action five... i didn't really like bolt action five when i listened to it just now.
i do like both, but for different reasons. BAF make me dance and sing about Knightmare! so yeah theyre jokers, but il let em off for danceability
all in all i dont really like grime/'new bloody rave'/or whatever in general anyway, i just keep feeling compelled to post in threads about these bands!
i hate reviews and reviewers that bang on about genre alllllllll the time, or, like the NME, consistently use and abuse tags they've made up. all it does is create a situation where the reviewer is showcasing their own knowledge of music to the detriment of the uninformed reader, rather than actually enabling the reader to take away any *valuable* information about the release.
blah blahblah blah blah etc.
Hadouken! = mildly irritating.
STOP BLOODY JOKING AROUND!
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAdouken more like
