i HATE journalism like this. WHEN WHEN WHEN WHEN will it stop?
releather MY upholstery
bet their head grew with smugness. Yes, kill them, Meths.
i used to do it a lot when i was, liek, 17, but it can be funny and generally a perfectly good way of getting reference points in if theyre relevant
and its just irritating when they do it for EVERY band.
Yes Meths! I hate this too!!
Clarkson says things like this a lot.
I CAN NOT STAND these 'decriptions' which tell you absolutely nothing about the music.
It's probably meant to be amusing but fails miserably.
at a show in Shorditch when the dickweed of a promoter thought he was being "quirky and original" putting his witty comparison on the fucking door bigger than our name! Not pleased.
"its like the Sex Pistols on acid"
Like Bjork on a drug-fuelled weekend with Nicky Wire and Art Garfunkel, after being buggered all week by the Bay City Rollers on far too many painkillers.
in the back of Jimi Hendrix's van whilst Louise Wener feeds smarties to the drummer from Black Rebel Motorcycle Club in time with Madonna's 'Like A Prayer'.
with Matt Bellamy dry humping the wheels of Coldplay's tourbus while Chris Martin fights with Nina Simone....kinda thing.
which is only playing because Garth Brookes was sick of hearing Metallica and changed the record before Sammy Davis Jr came home with the chips that Van Halen had cooked in a chip-shop owned by Dr. Hook.
who had bought it from Peter Gabriel who was desperate to sell because he couldn't pay the gambling debts he'd racked up during that week in vegas with half of Dexy's Midnight Runner's and the cute violinist from My Life Story.
the only reason she was there is because Fran Healey vouched for her and because everyone knew she had sex with Dusty Springfield that night at Elton John's party after she was groped by The Polyphonic Spree.
who, as it turns out, where late to the party because, as it turns out, Kris Kross were trying to make them jump in the car park as Talk Talk handed out slices of a badly cooked Badly Drawn Boy.
critically talking, I think this band really need to streamline their sound a bit more. I don't think the NME have invented the "Nu-no-wave-electodream-post-prock-CUNTry-acousto-punk-pop-pop-poppin-popper-sharpy-choir" scene.....although, by the time this thread is finished expect to see "The finest purveyors of Nu-No-Wave....." in the NME listings.
used to describe the Vines as 'like Kurt Cobain doing pot with John Lennon in heaven'.
like Gaye Bikers On Acid on acid
like Sheep On Drugs on drugs
like Animals On Wheels on wheels
...that had the line 'Like Hendrix being whipped by a spunk-soaked t-shirt.' Favourite description ever.
no *****h*** threads (typing this last bit in trepidation)
