MY HEART EXPLODING
LES SAVY FAV
that represent all the major swear words?
I presume Selfish Cunt will be next.
fuck sake. i wish atp/eat your own ears would get over this band.
one of the best hardcore bands of the 80s. meat puppets. :D
and then became a twisted fantastic multi-genre band. but their hardcore stuff is up there with husker du.
i know phil likes hardcore. its better than me saying 'yeah some of their stuff is really cool like early zz top.' which is true but might put him off.
i think you're talking about one of her favourite bands too enthusiastically again.
makes you... what?
I quite like some ZZ top. I have been meaning to investigate Meat Puppets for a while. I've always been kind of put off by the folk/country/neil young relationship they're sposed to have. As I've never really been that into that kind of stuff.
to also largely misunderstand neil young as well..
except probably while I slept my way through the boredom of Nirvana Unplugged.
My old flatmate said something like "The thing about Kurt Cobain was that he was a total genius songwriter...but he had some really rubbish taste in bands."
I agree with the first half of that statement but I've never found out if the second half is true.
and your friend should die swiftish
Shonen Knife. Rubbish.
the originals are so much better its stupid. they were pretty clever convincing him to play those songs too, they made more money from that then they did from everything they did in the rest of their careers combined
i'd much prefer the original lake of fire.
really. I just have a preconception that one day will be tested when I have a full wallet.
if you have even a passing interest in dinosaur jr or built to spill or basically any guitar driven feedbacky stomping 90s alt rock, you're basically just listening to neil young cover versions. good ones though.
I mean, I like Neil Young and he has some great noisy bits in his songs but I wouldn't compare it to Dinosaur Jr. FFS.
you need to listen to more neil young.
J's guitar and vocal styles are blatantly ny influenced.
Where does that leave you. Of course they sound similar but that's not that same as drawing wild lines of comparison.
nothing like neil young. have you only heard harvest or something?
mascis takes a lot more from neil young that radiohead ever did.
he also won't admit it :D
neil song i can think of by radiohead is high and dry. and thats only cos the vocals.
neil young cdr very soon. you will either get it on monday if you come, or i'll post it to you. this man made an hour i'll also do you a copy of some meat puppets stuff.
he made this:
which should at least be enough to interest you!
the words 'this man made an hour' turned up in the middle of that. please ignore.
for teh win
Not that I've been before, and Camber is nearer so I think I might finally make it.
before. neither have dirty projectors as far as i know. or apse.
or glass candy
even played outside of North America before!
It's not fair to judge until more bands have been added. I'm sure it'll be pretty diverse.
havent...dinosaur jr, lsf, bss, iron and wine, ween, eits played before?
Im not complaining like.
I cant decide between the weekends yet.
definitely going to Pitchfork. NO AGE!!!!!!!
is about the pitchfork lineup. but yeh the EITS lineup is very predictable.
people were more curious and interested, whereas with this one they feel that EITS arent that legendary of a band and that the choices so far, though mainly good, are a little unsurprising. but yeh, it'll probably turn out great, as they always do.
EITS may be ONE SIXTH OF THE LINE UP but they are also PICKING ALL THE BANDS. As i said in that thread "They're such uninspired selections, and I hear nothing in EITS oeuvre to convince me that they're likely to pick anything vaguely interesting. Hopefully i'll be proved wrong..."
what sort of bands will EITS be picking?
since you seem to know so very well yourself - enough to write off the entire weekend, apparently - perhaps you'd care to tell us?
is that they wont pick andrew wk.
other than "Alt-rock", By the numbers post-rock and insipid folk-rock. EITS do seem like the sum of their influences, there's nothing in their work to convince me that they might have a burning passion for anything that might coincide with my tastes, aside from perhaps Fridge (because of the Four Tet connection). I really, really hope i'm wrong, and they'll pick The Fall or Skream or something...
you genuinely are writing off an entire ATP weekend after 6 bands.
I'm not convinced by the inital announcement but lets give it a chance.
Shit & shine, No Age and LSF! This is shaping up to be AWESOME!
(preferably someone I've met and like xxxxxxxx).
