They act to sum up everything that's wrong with indie pop music, and what it's become.
good name though!
and the front man pissed me off so much with his antics. i really shouldnt player hate, but.....ARRRRGHHHH! he is a nobend
they sounded ok so i might watch them at leeds, but i just get the feeling they will turn out as just another overhyped, 2nd rate indie band.
We shall see.
and really liked "The Next Untouchable" but it went downhill from there, for me. Plus, it really annoys me how the woman in the band does nothing, I swear.
I don't understand why someone's upbringing would make you prejudiced, quite aside from the fact that particular quote was largely incorrect anyway.
Just seems like you have read various cliched sound bites in the supplements and decided you hate everything they stand for. WayOutWest was born and grew from something very special and tiny, it never had any ties to the large commercial aspects of music and it always supported bands they loved not bands that would be huge.
even more rubbish than newspapers usually are. but everyone seems to keep buying them. i dont get why.
Saw them in Bedford... Really don't know why I went to that gig.
That's pretty much it.
music is only for the middle classes! those with money have no creativity!
besides, music is only for the working classes. noone else appreciates it properly.
yeah, fuck off moss. no millionaires can be muddying up our pete! our working class hero!
They have money? My band played alongside them in Shoreditch last year and they had the worst drum kit I have ever played on (Percussion Plus). They were headlining and the promoters treated us like crap so we left in time to miss Cajun Dance Party's set. We sat with them backstage for a while; the band were alright, the drummer was a really friendly chap, but the singer thought he was a rockstar.
as are bombay bicycle club, etc etc
as indie pop bands go, they are quite nice. couple of insanely catchy tunes and this time next year (if not by the end of 2007) they will be massive. They are ridiculously young as well, which helps with the topman musically obsessed world people currently live in. i'm not sure what that means.
I'd probably be listening to them a helluva lot. etc etc.
Hahaha, apparently they are still at school, and they attend my old secondary school. Other famous musical products of the school... er... Joe Strummer, Les Incompetents... I think that's it, as far as I know.
When I first heard them last year I thought Next Untouchable was a great tune, but nothing else has really lived up to that since. I fear youth and a girl in the band who wears pretty dresses will almost certainly catapult them to fame in 2008.
what i was trying to say but done so much more immaculately
