are back, and im personally very excited.
im guessing people have opinions on the new single??
indie bands about. their albums consist of 50% utter shit and 50% brilliant pop tunes.
the first album is an indie pop gem, but they've really lost it
compare them to mumm-ra hahaha
that so many of their songs are about how much they hate 'scenesters'. Is that a worthy subject?
Some good tunes though on both albums.
the new single is alright but it's a shame they seem to hve gone back to the rubbish production.
watch and wait
brixton academy October
and watch em go in the US
they are the shizzle
got style and charm and tunes
and they do not sound identikit. that is just not true.
new album is ace
ive never been so desperate to hear an album in my life!
"like polished turd" said someone, somewhere.
The one that is trying it's hardest to be a Strokes song but just not quite making it?
Hmmm. I don't mind the Cribs though. We'll see.
might grow on me
The Cribs have produced some of the best
pop songs ever. Brilliant shouty drunk dancing screaming pop GOLD.
Lee Ranaldo is on the new album, so Im
looking forward to it.
There, I've said it. Their debut still sounds brilliant. I don't think I could name another band right now that make lo-fi (ish) pop music as well as these chaps
are shit, no question. As if they could hold a candle to Hold Steady or The Ponys....or even Libertines. No. Hell no.
Like P/F, DiS is mostly spot on with reviews but they fuckin-A missed the mark here.
This band is crap. Is the lead singer still rocking the 13th century monk look?
