heard the second half of "Battle Royale"
So i really shouldn't have posted this
then didnt post.
but now i have. when i probably shouldnt.
"Battle Royale" is one of their songs: http://www.myspace.com/doesitoffendyou
sounds quite good really.
are a band. "Battle Royale" is a song by this band. Hope this helps.
..and to me it just sounds like bad music for a SNES game.
I thought people got bored of "Yeah, so, instead of using proper synths, our tunes sound like GAMEBOYS! How freakin' cool is that! It's like, retro and that! I like japanese stuff in general, though. Animé! Robots! Hilarious!" in 2005.
just like the frantic sample cutting / panning aspect
and so haven't gone out of my way to hear anything else
ROCK - keep listening and listening
but i've never heard them, no.
Should a band's name matter? I'm not sure. I'm comfortable enough not like Panic! At The Disco cos the name annoys me. If, however, they were to change it to Panic At! The Disco?
just sounds like the same electro-rock thing that everyone seems to be doing right now. not bad, but not massively interesting. danceable though.
in the latter stages of 2005. I always quite liked them, but was amazed when they turned into a viable live act.
It's only quite recently that they have actually written any new songs.
for a band who can make a sample of someone belching/hurling a perfectly viable 'hook' in a tune. Weird Science = whee.
they were actually very good - surprised me.
Tremendously good fun live, put on an excellent and energetic show for such a small band.
didn;t realise that there was a special ending, as the track finished and i was still waiting.
i like their other stuff though, so i'm not a total h8rr
and wasn't too fussed with it, just sounded like a load of British kids trying to be a generic tune on Ed Banger.
But even though Battle Royale seemingly fits my description above, I really like, especially that last quarter.
But now it's gone to that track Doomed Now? Which is just a bad Daft Punk tune with some boring guitars. Sigh.
or at least what I had heard on myspace in the past.
They were fucking awful at Leeds in the summer though. Was really looking foward to seeing them but I had to leave after 2 songs. They were atrocious.
