Best-of out this week.
that you need to be wrapped up in to appreciate them. From the outside they just seem a bit 'meh'
But one thing I am sure of is that Roddy's lyrics aren't half as clever as he seems to think they are
Having said that, I do enjoy my 12-track self-made 'best of' playlist.
i think most people realise they were great when they started and then slowly got more boring. i dont know any obsessives...
used to buy idlewild promos from opal music and things like that.
im happy with my decision. me and 30 other people.
i saw them 4 times in 3 days in 2000
I mean, they aren't shockingly bad or anything, in fact their first two albums, and early live shows were pretty awesome, but Idlewild are a classic case of hypocrisy amongst music fans.
Anyone who has enjoyed anything from The Remote Part onwards, please buy some REM albums, and admit that REM are much better.
The amount of people I know who are ardent recent-album Idlewild fans who couldn't give two hoots about REM is ridiculous. Sort it out if you are one of these people, seriously. You are a fan of a reasonably bland bore-core soft-rock band, and are missing out on enjoying possibly the best band of all time.
i can see why people like Idlewild, I personally did not like their last two albums much, but can see why people might like them.
I'm just trying to point out the ridiculous situation that is Idlewild fans not being REM fans.
It's just silly.
but i've run out of money. So unless you can get me in free and I can persuade my dad to drive me back to Brighton tomorrow in order to play a show, then I can't come. Actually this is possible because he might want to come. Hmmmmm.... actually it might be likely.
It is going to be a fantastic gig! I'll see what he says.
and they were an amazing live band ( amazing enough to make me pay for a Placebo ticket... )
A shame they've become so average...
Why was I not aware of tis. Goin see them next week. YAY!
get with the times and have some super-duper fun grandad
Even the tamer stuff of late is still better than half the shit that comes out.
100 Broken Mirrors is still where it's wait.
