the crowd looks bored out of their fucking minds.
why are they getting any press at all?
they insult other bandzzzzzzzzz
I always think of their name as joe jong and the jong jong jong
I think it is a marked improvement.
Joe Lean and the Just Fuck Off And Die
has decided to pump a load of money into marketing them?
I rather like the new Young Knives song. It's dead catchy, shame nearly everything else they have done is shit.
... when they haven't even released an album yet?
Unless they have, and I'm just so apathetic towards them I haven't noticed...
but i'm guessing they soon will be, seeing as their on the same label as Razorlight, The Killers not to mention the hugely talentless One Night Only.
and what the hell were they doing selling out my 900 capacity student union the other week?
I saw a picture of them in NME. They look like cunts.
the pigeon detectives not long ago. Would you like any further information?
a detailed thesis on why bands like this are in anyway popular.
Whenever I ask my mates who like the Pigeon Detectives I get replies along the lines of "cos arcade fire have like 20 members innit"
'intelligent people like the arcade fire innit'
maybe try asking god
I'm guessing they are targeted at younger kids of today. However i did see their tourbus outside the joiners and couldn't resist drawing a schoolboy penis in the dirt on it.
they have one due for release on 21st April. One fellow says, and i quote, "If the albulm is half as good as the singles I have already heard we're in for another gem. I have seen them live and they are pretty amazing."
I can't wait
if i kill the jong jong jongs, no court in the land would convict me!
that Joe Lean, but not his jang jing, was in Peep Show?!!?! Is this true?
is there anything this little man can't do?????????////////
he can't sing!
sounds like you're saying Joe Lean is ok.
they are obviously shit but its just a bit pathetic to go on about it as if you are something special for hating a shit band.
Look at me im well indie ive never listened to kaiser chiefs... whoop de fucking doo
the "new indie" attitude revolves around poptimism and saying "actually, i quite like that song by *uncool hate band of the moment*"
did i mention, i actually quite like one of the Pigeon Detectives songs? And that Joe Lean one with the writing on the body video? Perfectly reasonable imho
just like what you like.
And yeah one pidgeon detectives song is actually alright, another one is complete wank but that is besides the point
these people are just liking what they like, disliking what they dont like, and being confused when lots of people like what they don't like.
It's not indie elitism, it's just an opinion, get over yourself.
and im not the one who needs to get over myself. its those who mock others for not listening to neutral milk hotel, and listening to something like joe lean instead.
dont pretend all these people are purely confused as to why a band are popular... its clearly not the case.
i dunno if yr directing this at me, exactly, but the point of this thread was to highlight that the audience really wasn't enjoying the band - so if the band's audience doesn't like them, who does?
just more at threads slagging off bands we all know are shit. Ok the first few times might be interesting,but when you get to the 50th thread about it and people arebeing dickheads its a bit annoying
Maybe some people hate the mainstream to be cool.
But it's perfectly understandable for someone to hear a song, dislike it, and wonder how so many people can like it (when, they know in the back of their mind it's probably because Radio 1 have repeatedly drummed it into their ears).
I agree with you in that no one really has the right to preach about what music is superior, but can it not be the case that people can innocently have contrasting opinions to the masses? Especially with respect to something so contentious as music.
that the drummer from joe lean and the lead singer from one night only are brothers. They are also both in bands signed to vertigo. Oh and they also have rich parents.
I can easily imagine that someone with rich parents would have a brother also with rich parents.
The whole JL&TJJJ thing is interesting, I think, because there is only one outlet giving them hype (an important one in the scheme of things, but one nonetheless) and everyone else openly hates them. The Guardian music section has run five anti pieces in the last three months - and they don't even sell a lot of records. I wonder how much of this weekly anti-Lean thing is more Look At Their Stupid Name! currency that doesn't apply to, say, The Metros, the first band in some time I've wanted to murder every member of.
