fucking really, really awful.
that is all, thank you.
to start this debate again, I think you're wrong. Very, very wrong.
And everyone who posts below agreeing with you, I think they're wrong too.
Had you worried for a second there didn't I?
or use the 'each to their own' argument.
they were just, fucking crap. FACT.
I'd finished watching them I wandered back through everyone in the pub and expected everyone to be all like 'Wow, they were dead good!'. I was genuinely surprised when no-one else liked them, I just couldn't grasp it.
I loved them.
And you can shut up, you like the Frames. A band with one English fan, for very good reasons. You nepotistic Irish freak.
i now feel the need to.
The important thing is, I thought the front two of the Indelicates were captivating and exciting, and I thought the songs were catchily wonderful.
* their singer, the female - couldn't sing to save her life. not even if i was threatening to cut her
* their songs were unoriginal, bland, not extremely well played, uninspiring.
* they sounded like a pub band
* imagine them anywhere else. does it work? no.
* imagine them selling records. will they? no.
* i was pretty drunk when they came on and, i wasn't even bobbing my head
* you were absolutely fucking WASTED. and think they're good. are you to be trusted? i think not.
How someone can sing is most of the time completely unimportant to me. I never normally notice someones voice, except in exceptional circumstances. She sounded alright to me.
Again, originality isn't a major plus point most of the time with me. I like Kaiser Chiefs for fucks sake. The piano/keyboard lines were, I thought, incredibly good. As was the bassist, and the chemistry between the band. They inspired me.
'Imagine them anywhere else' Like where? They're never going to headline Knebworth, no. But for a small band in a small venue, I think it was lovely.
Will they sell records? Who cares. Given by the rest of the public's reaction to them, probably not. But selling records doesn't necessarily make them any better. I would buy them, and I would pay to see them again.
I was drunk. This is your most valid point...
in small venues, who, by and large, would have blown those fuckers out of the water. they were lame.
Frankly the Indelicates made a damn sight more of an impression on me than most of them do. And I was sober on Friday.
I thought they were great. I also thought the downloads I've downloaded are great.
Typically I tend to get frustrated by most bands in I see in small venues 'cos, let's face it, the majority of bands playing small venues are playing small venues for a reason (I should point out I say that as someone who is in a band that plays small venues ;) ). I'm usually the first to get pissed off when I find bands to be dull, derivative, unoriginal and uninspiring. But I didn't feel that with the Indelicates at all.
I'm very much with Bamos on this one. Mostly because he's right.
good. They're certainly not the best new band of the last year or so, but they're by no means the worst. I do like 'sixteen', very catchy.
I'm with Sarky on this one..
The best thing about their set was watching drunken Bamos sing along :)
I'm going to perform at the next all-dayer. Watch me split opinion like the Indelicates with my out-of-tune rendition of Ocean Colour Scene songs.
I thought they were hideously awful, drama schooly nastiness. She could sing, but she'd be better doing Oliver in the west end.
I like the Kaiser Chiefs too :)
I also like this new Good Shoes album I'm listening to. Go me.
what is the point of this thread?
from the last sentence i completely agree
*admittedly this is because Tim Ten Yen isn't a band.
The point of this thread is to indirectly malign you by insulting the bands you choose to put on at gigs. Duh.
BA DUM TISH!
The biggest irony is that The Indelicates really are the worst tripe imaginable and everyone that likes them is mega, ultra, giga wrong.
Is that irony?
it's like rain on your wedding day
Because the person getting married was a meterologist who had forecast perfect weather?
it's called 'being incorrect'.
I liek them and I enjoyed the gig. Others can like, dislike, enjoy, not enjoy as they wish. However, I fail to understand two things.
1) Why is the dislike of them expressed with such force? I see bands who do not move me, some of whom appeal to others. I'm not sure I am inclined to ponder on their music too much and express my dislike with such ossification.
2) The criticism of the Indelicates based on a spurious association of them with theatre and musicals is mis-placed; further, it makes no sense because it assumes a dividing line between theatre and music at gigs.
Although I sort of admire any band that can split opinion as violently as the Indelicates seem to.
I don't really get why their theatricality is seen as such a crime - I thought it was something that set them apart from some of the other acts of the day in a very good way indeed.
are great and were great on Friday. So ner.
Some advice: Lay off the crack.
and I fucking loved them.
