why do i come here?
It's Jasmine's profile pic that keeps me coming back for more.
Take that back!
but I find little that interests or excites me. On DiS or anywhere else to be honest. There's so much mediocrity around and so many people who seem to settle for mediocrity (in general, not on DiS in particular).
I'm sure this has always been the case but it's depressing nonetheless, particularly when someone's raving about some band or other and then you listen and it's just like everything that's gone before.
My band interest and excite me although they obviously would or else I wouldn't be doing it.
It's just not my bag, baby. These po-faced bands all have common factors that DiSers dig. And good for them. I like lots of stuff that sounds the same in my own areas of musical interest but it ain't disco-drumming+ guitars + 'questionable beards' as Prole might say...
It's the people on here I like. When they're not trying desperately to be controversial (DiS low-points abound). Cos y'know it's the people wot makes ya aaaand it's the people wot breaks ya...
The website is a bonus (when the writers aren't trying desperately to be controversial)...
Most bands on here I loathe..
since i rarely make a conscious effort to listen to any of it. I tend to have some frame of reference for about 10% of the bands mentioned
and witness people getting uppity? Yeah!
Also I think you're looking to sing in a band.
that i am, ten points for attention to detail!
Could you please let us know what bands you love or even mildly like.
If you don't see bands you like mentioned, mention them yourself. This board does often seem to limit itself to a couple of genres but that is up to users to change.
I don't hate anything (a few exceptions) and by nature, much of what gets talked about is going to be a varying degree of average, but I do respect everybodys passion for music and collectively, we seive through an awful lot of shit to throw up some true gems.
as much new music as i thought I would here, as a generalisation I share a similar stuck-in-an-early-nineties-rut with a lot of people but there's only so much you can talk about around that... however through persistent jags I've heard some people's music on here that i like, that's not a bad thing.
music-wise too. On a more important issue, what is a 'JAG'? Everyone uses this term but I have no idea what it means.
to promote your own band/club night/blog under the pretence of starting a discussion thread.
Man, we're all such pretentious cunts here. we have such bad taste.
Thank god people like you are here to show us where we're going wrong. You're basically enlightened in a sea of idiots.
we really need more sarcasm on these boards! Please try to make more sarcastic posts, I find them really amusing! Thanks!
And Dillinger Escape Plan and stuff then... There's plenty of people who like 'em out there...just prise them out of their shells :)
yeah more hc!
And my world-renowned 0-reply threads !
doesn't mean you don't find some excellent stuff...
Some of my new favourite albums are Lyle recommended...
it's because of you that I found Besnard Lakes... Which in turn lead me to find Odawas...
Also, Hearts of Black Science are very nice...
Not enough love for them here !
but whom is it he found out about besnard lakes from? me, thats whom.
most of his recommendations are 'alright', like sleeping years
But why didn't you start a thread about the Besnard Lakes ( or review the first album for DiS ) yourself and let me beg you to tell me what good new bands I should listen to ?
And the Sleeping Years is GREAT !
And go listen to danish duo Rumskib !
You might like them !
is going down very nicely thanks...
Much better than the shite on the office stereo...
haha, i wasn't expecting any replies, i posted this when i was pretty angry 'cos i have been ill lately :(
i'm just sick of reading about foals, beirut, les savy fav, deerhoof, sonic youth (altho i love them)
the bands that get discussed most that i like are uk ones like rolo tomassi and mmisl and stuff, i'm just being narky
and yeah the people on this board are cool for sure, real mixed bunch
