its official they're mainstream todays edition of the Sun has a two page spread about them and a 5 star rating!!
I didnt think the sun would be into the whole "whinging introspectively" deal. Unless its about tits. Big, fat tits.
Conor Oberst...big tit...joke somewhere
have you ever thought they wernt since im wide awake...top ten album this week...number 1 and 2 in billboard charts with lua and take it easy last year...a first since beatles and p diddy....let alone mainstream, they are up there with the biggest of the mainstream!
getting as much radio play as the biggst pop stars around at the moment..
whos to blame him though, he's paid his dues...made something great in lifted, lettin off the happiness and f&m....now he counts the millions..
unserstand their popularity, but the sun and a two page spread, no doubt polydors deal has helped the PR more than what saddle creek could do
in HMV on my lunch break, still dunno if he is THAT big, the no 1 & 2 was single sales in the US which basically don't exist not there proper chart based on radio and he still hasn't sold out 2 nights at shepards bush which I find really surprising, I really thought he could do 2 at brixton these days at a push.
i can't believe i just bought the sun :|
did i miss all the cassadaga threads last week? :p i'll just do it here - having listened to it a few times now here's my 2 pence:
clairaudients (kill or be killed): nice opening to album, not unlike most bright eyes opener.
four winds: love it, as per e.p.
if the brakeman...: s'alright, a bit boring, a bit a.o.r.
hot knives: pretty good. (i've made love, yeah i've been fucked, so what?...lol)
make a plan to love me: urgh, boring generic ballad. overblown, predictable strings. oh noes.
soul singer..: don't like it, and it seems to always get played live as well :(
classic cars: haven't decided whether this is good americana yet. may love it with more listens.
middleman: highlight. brilliant song, love the lyrics. it sounded darker live so maybe a clearer bass sound would've been even better.
cleanse song: nice, like it.
no one would riot for less: beautiful and haunting.
coat check dream song: s'alright, a bit boring musically (& lyrically?), except for that chanting bit at the end - that's ace.
i must belong somewhere - like this alot, would fit nicely in iwaim. but i still lol at 'leave the cauliflower in the casserole today'!
lime tree - beautiful and rather sad, makes me :'(
i'll shut up now.
a bit disapointed with the viynl peeled the plastic off not realising the cover sticker was on it leaving a boring looking grey album, and the decoder is reall small I thought it would be bigger than the cd one
i've never heard of them
Can this Brazilian Ceiling Wax person be banned from the boards the oasis joke for funny for about one or two threads but now it's just amazingly annoying putting it on every thread.
