...if dananananaykroyd weren't also in the country.
so they're technically not in this country are they?
so am I, because i swear that isn't spelt right.
Is this like when Tottenham fans proclaim that Spurs are the best team in London?
...and they play at the Bridge.
At least twice a season, yeah.
I knew that would be the reply as soon as I posted that one!!
Cats In Paris
you were DEAD wrong
to be in my profile picture any more
afternoon gig! they're just SO BAD
Twilight Sad and Frightened Rabbit are better.
Johnny Foreigner are pretty shit hot though.
Actually, I should really like them, but I just haven't been able to really come round to them.
but i'm afraid i'd have to agree with the dananananaykroyd comment.
also, i'm quite annoyed johnny foreigner removed 'salt, pepa & spinderella' from their myspace page. they lose 5 points for that.
im in sheffield visiting my best friend (Rusty0403) and we intend to see them at some pub on monday :D
It's the DiS gig. It's going to be ace. Mike Diver is DJing! Fun times.
...INCREDIBLE when i saw them in Derby...best band in the UK though.....hmmmm
a derby friend for me! and he's POSI check out those x's!!!
Aren't they just a spastic less talented version of LC!? I'll wait till their album comes out before ...oh, yeah ...Alex, that's sorta a bold statement for a myspace band, what?
and it's brilliant. They also have a shitload of demos, which are also brilliant. They're brilliant. Like a spastic, I'm-not-prepared-to-comment-on-relative-talent-but-they're-definitely-better-by-virtue-of-being-punkier Los Campesinos!.
Well done DiS.
I don't see what you've changed...
but on my monitor, it drifts off the edge of the page after "better".
but there are other UK bands out there...starting at the top, but this is no meritocracy - they're all incredible:
Favours For Sailors
This Aint Vegas
Gay Against You
4 or 5 Magicians
It's a rich time, everyone should enjoy it. Hey Harold...
they were indeed awesome!
Incidently, we can add Youthmovies to the 'best bands in the country list', no?
Well, surely all bands are 'My Space bands' these days?
I think they're infinitely more talented than LC! (Now there's a band that I really cannot see the appeal in whatsoever).
with this kind of crap.
they are the least arrogant people i've ever met. they have no ego to inflate.
alexei - keep writing great songs.
jesus i'm slaughetered
I dream a day of a tour:
4 or 5 Magicians
Favours For Sailors
rotating line-up. Would be the most incredible £6 a music fan could spend. I think this time has passed.
I've said this a milliontimes and I'll say it again
thats quite the endorsement though
they are cack
The album tracks I've got are awesome.
Sound like China Drum fronted by Avril Lavigne. Seriously, I can't imagine anyone over 16 being vaguely interested in them.
but tubelord are better.
tubelord = best british band right now. FU if you disagree, seriously EFF YOU!!!
But I'm going to see them tomorrow. Maybe they will change my mind.
Hope this makes more people listen to MENEGUAR who they ripped off and are even better.
they are a fantastic band. a lot of people dislike the vocals but i think they're great.
another hit from BSM.
a weird mix of mo*ho*bish*o*pi and the automatic.
think thats a nice way of saying "a bit balls"
didn't see where the hype came from!
and it doesn't disappoint.. amazing production, had me dancing around my bedroom like a maniac.
forgot to put Held By Hands on the list.
J-Fo, Favours, Dananana,
sll great bands. word.
you're getting confused with Vampire Weekend there.
You speak the truth.
If you want to find out that everyone else really, really, really hates your favourite band, call them your favourite band on DiS and even if there's not been a single word said against them previously you'll soon find they lie somewhere beneath Scouting For Girls in the popular concensus.
in the proper order...
was OKish but nothing to convince me to buy their records someday.
But I would like to see them live..
but no. i just don't like it. so my vote for best band in the UK right now goes to Video Nasties.
video nasties are ok...but jofo, dananana, copy haho, tubelord and some others are better.
what don't you like about jofo?
dananananaykroyd is really good, i'm glad you pushed the topic here and made me listen to them, but the others are blah just like Johnny F. i dunno. i just don't like sissy-pop i guess...that whole "i'm a girl!""and i'm a boy!""and we're gonna sing songs to you babbababbbabooo!"
mind you I have yet to see them live.
supported LC and only having heard a few tracks of theirs, i did wonder where all the hype was from as they seemed to just hover over ordinary.
it was only after i started giving their music a chance that they became infectious. what seemed like quite a basic band at first came all their influences in their music and made it much more listenable.
going to see them live again, then i'll decide.
are definitely growers, quite complex for poppy guitar music.
taking everything into account JF are indeed the best British band in the UK right now... I do know of another who may well as good but until they release a record I gonna hold fire...
thanks everyone. no pressure then......
Now why don't you fuck off you jumped up little cunt.
i've heard so far sound pretty great. But as someone said above, they lose points for taking down Salt, Pepa and Spinderella.
they were fucking fantastic at New Slang supporting Los Campesinos!.
'Arcs Across The City' is fabbo.
i want their album plz.
