actually, those aren't irrational at all.
is totally idiotic
angular makes sense but is overused
but even then it's bad, unless you're Shaft.
George Motherfucking Clinton
95% of his songs contain the word 'funk' in some capacity. Many of them have lyrics where 'funk' fulfils more than 50% of the word count
G.M. Clinton is not bad (though he is BAD)
not when someone calls the new Jamie Cullum album "funky and dancey"
also pronounced "seeeg"
if you cant talk properly, yes
Jo Wiley when she speaks
To the mainstream?
To the mainstream, this won;t reply where I want it, try again...
New Weird America
Freak or Free Folk
I guess these are genres but they really piss me off
That really annoyed me.
Oh fuck it, when that dude said alternative to what
'Visceral', 'fractured', 'math', 'in the vein of Don Caballero'.
i keep reading stuff like "it's the sound of the truth unravelling" - NO IT BLOODY ISN'T.
anything safe to use? Cause i was thinking of starting an epic-angular post-rock band that puts out funky bangers that are like kasabian if they had a clue. We have some chooooooons, you know.
Not so much a musical term, more an unspeakabley shit way to describe a band.
and worse when used where *insert band name* are known to have been users of acid. I can't remember where I saw an example of this but it was most perplexing.
That is all.
I used that word in a review the other day....I felt ashamed of myself afterwards.
that's really bad!
I immediately think of samba drums. Is there a reason for that?
in other news, I see I'm not alone:
as in sophomore album (second album)
stupid meaningless Amercanism
which is a word i've invented and really like
gets used all the time. 'Normalcy' is an Americanism.
it's only meaningless when it's used ALL the time so that it really has no significance. Otherwise, it's a perfectly acceptable term that implies that the album is equal, if not better, than their debut.
it's a word, it's in the dictionary. You're not one of those people who hates it if people sing in an American accent, are you?
of the word 'disco'. Yeah, listen to us talking and singing about discos, let's all have a disco. NOBODY USES THIS WORD SERIOUSLY.
Looking up at my own subject, I also hate the prefix 'post'.
garage...r and b...
both are sickeningly misused- as they are terms for proper sixties energetic shit that have been misappropriated for bad modern turdery
Any given phrasing of how or why a band "CANNOT BE DEFINED BY A MERE GENRE LABEL"
All those band descriptions that are in the same vein as "like Band X on acid" except trying to be witty and imaginative, like "THIS BAND SOUNDS LIKE FUGAZI GIVING STEVIE WONDER A HANDJOB WHILE DRIVING OVER RAZORLIGHT IN A TRACTOR"
that band sound amazing
I love them already.
What the fuck is that supposed to mean in the context of music?
A row of houses?
A zebra crossing?
Built up areas and shopping precincts?
what does that mean!
right now im post-sleep
just cos i did something after sleeping doesnt mean what i do next is influenced by that thing.
suggests beyond rock, thats just arrogance when blatantly that music is rock.
should come with a stamp on it.
used to describe themselves as 'Post-good' when an interviewer was being a prick. Still makes me laugh.
Anything preceded by 'Alt' ie Alt-country. Basically it's country music but you feel embarrassed by saying you like country music so you invented a genre to stick all the bits of country that you like in.
Call it country and just admit that there are some country artists who are really good and there are some who are unspeakably shit, just like every other genre.
I really REALLY hate it when a band is described by describing two or more other bands having sex with one another, e.g. "THEY SOUND LIKE HUSKER-DU FUCKING KYUSS" What kind of a desciption of music is that? Just all of the members of said bands, naked together in a line with their erect penises inserted into one another? Not good at all.
And if they bolt the dreaded "...ON ACID!!!" onto the end then I stop reading. Or I've picked up a copy of Q.
...when used to describe a female vocalist (and it's only ever used in that context). Makes me want to fucking puke.
basically means too long
