who was shittest?
buying the melody maker with them on the front even back then.
unrelated I just looked at your profile and I know you in real life
although should we bump into each other again please dont mention king adora especially if I'm with my friends
King Adora had a couple of good singles and were otherwise rather bad.
gives you any type of song you want as long as its bland
and i feel fully qualified to comment, seeing as i uh own the full back catalogue of both artists...ahem...
However, while I cringe at admitting to having both King Adora albums, I still love listening to Easyworld...
the second KA album. LOLLERAMA. It has its moments, though - Asleep and Fear & Loathing are pretty good, even though they do sound...er...exactly like Suffocate. And the less said about 9 Inches Of Pure Malice the better ("it's gonna make you go wow!").
The second Easyworld album, however, is great. A bit dull in parts, but still one I dig out from time to time.
This Is Where I Stand remains a fixture of my top 100 albums.
Vibrate You does not.
the only thing 9" of malice gives you is a couple of good lines to slip into (hehehe) any conversation about cock...
TIWIS is fantastic.
Nothing KA ever recorded really deserves being regarded as more than amusing.
at least easyworld had 'bleach', which, daft as it was, was a good tune.
have we gone back in time ten years?
is a perfect pop song.
and morally upholding.
so King Adora.
I grew out of king adora what feels like a long long long time ago.
voice is feckin annoying! Easyworld had some pretty cool tunes though but i always preferred King Adora.
i really really really really hate Easyworld, i merely dislike King Adora
its basically a question of whether you like average indie pop that verges on being a bit boring, or average indiepop that verges on being a bit terrible.
but everyone needs to embrace average, otherwise what will we judge greatness by?
and let's face it both Easyworld and KA were a cut above the pigeon detectives/hoosiers/plain white ts etc...weren't they?
on the insanely ugly man from the pigeon detectives
he could be in king adora!
both had their bad moments.
If I had to chose to listen to one album right now, I think I would chose King Adora...
i remember the song you and me.
my favourite band for a few months at the turn of the decade. Not sure why. Probably because the only alternatives at the time were Coldplay, Travis, Limp Bizkit and Papa Roach I guess...
although I liked jj72 and muse a tad more
