housemartins to beautiful south.
the fucking idiot.
master of puppets to st. anger
you meant to say norman cook
housemartins to (becoming) fatboy slim
didn't do A Little Time. Or Song For Whoever. Nor did they include Norman sodding Cook and have that fit ginger bird. And for that, his 'descent' is worth it.
so many mistakes in one sentence.
the beautiful south are the most indefensible band of the last century, this century, and every other century.
the most indefensible band in your first post! pshaw.
ATD-I to Mars Volta
i agree with this one.
were amazing at first.
I think not
De-loused is better than anything ATD-I did....
at second as well. FTM is their best.
definitely. it's only amputechture that isn't any good. i have reasonably high hopes for the new one.
you're right Filip.. *sniff*
theaudience to rubbish tuneless pop.
You're looking for the 'Biggest Career Ascent' thread?
theaudience were terrible, 'If This Ain't Love' is one of the best pop songs ever.
all her proper solo stuff is rubbish.
"If You Can't Do It When You're Young When Can You Do It"
Especially after Sunday doing his Brent dance again.Oh dear
circa 1988-9, rabble rousing tabloid baiting party anthems to absolute nobodies (this isn't critically speaking)
Jefferson Airplane to Jefferson Starship:
however this might be seen as an ascent to bamos.
as were the Beautiful South. Paul Heaton = consistently rubbish.
Joy Division -> New Order -> New Order covering Joy Division?
the housemartins had 2 or 3 wonderful singles, plus actually intelligent lyrics. and then... Rotterfuckingdam.
were much better than Joy Division.
oh so wrong
all carried on being shit
some ended shit
Sum 41 actually seem to be making a return to their roots, so I have high hopes, although the departure of Dave Baksh could be a problem.
were the problem in the first place. Horrible band
it was VERY VERY BAD
from The Jam > The Style Council
that's very true.
nation of ulysses
everything he's ever done
can't have been about the money
he runs a recording studio. It is his day job.
weird war is great.
AK-47, Grand Fraud and If you can't beat 'em are all pretty memorable...
he doesn't need the money-so why?
steve albini has never really had a career slump.back track,back track
against making money.
he's done high profile artists before. you clearly have a mistaken impression of him.
out of over two thousand bands.bush is about the only bummer
when did he say he wouldnt do commercial bands?
clearly its usually the quality of the band that defines how good records are that he produces... he can make great bands sound really nice, but he cant polish a turd.
about saying he'll record anyone who wants to make a record.
were the band the jam could have been.
seriously. much better
Wolf Eyes --> Andrew WK
but, yes, theirs has been something of an impressive descent.
Stone Roses yet?
From cool to cunt.
The Smiths to Modest Mouse.
hoping they pull it back with a corker of a third album.
is one embarrassing blur album away from this, sadly.
Damon Albarn could do at this point is beg, beg, beg, Graham Coxon to write with him again.
since the self titled
Sex Pistols > Pil > Reality TV star
had better be an ascent.
From The Wonderstuff to Vent 414 (or whatever the fuck they were called) and the indie rhyming slang phrase for cunt!
Rivers Cuomo of Weezer. That guy had it all and totally threw it away. He could have been as great an artist as Brian Wilson, but he became such an insecure moron that he decided to settle for being a mildly interesting performer.
oh david david
although to be honest that's just from Change to his self-titled.
Talking Heads -> X-Press 2
debut album to the recent shit
but the Darkness' second album is actually good. Yes it is.
Badly drawn bore, portishead (unless they come back with something amazing)M people.
great folky > good rock n roller > okay whingey middle-aged man > woeful evangelist > mumbling twat.
