I was interviewed by him for newsround, he's aces.
That ain't no indie band thats a pretty boy band yeuk
this is the proper term
who was in Throwing Muses.
Ermm.... chappy from The Boo Radleys...
Christ I think that might be it.
God is indie a racial ghetto or what?
Yes, I know I've misunderstood the whole point of this thread but... am I the only one to have woken up at 3am and thought 'Christ, I have about 50gb of music, how much of it is made by black people? What is cause and what is effect here?'
The Cure (Head On The Door era)
"you love that bluesy growly singer bloke"
Hmmm. I think she thinks Tom Waits is black.
That would mean that he 'whited up' for his film roles and cover shoots though. Which would be odd.
I was quite disappointed to see that Silver Mt Zion finally put a picture of themselves in their new CD. Up until then I could at least say 'for all I know Thiery Amar etc could be black'.
I'm thinking about this too much aren't I?
;-) ps Above is meant with loads and loads of sarcasm.
i've never had this trouble with my friends...
no doubt you'll all be saddened to learnt that there isn't a thread about 'Random white people in rap acts'!
What's the trouble, anyway?
If you don't like music that is predominantly made my people of a certain ethnic group, so what? I don't really like bhangra, but, I'm not losing any sleep over it.
I doubt there are any chats going on in Peckham right now where earnest black liberal types are chastising themselves for not owning any post-hardcore.
trivial issues like this is the absolute perogative of the white liberal!
I demand my right to sweat over the fact the one and only hip-hop CD I own is by the Beastie Boys! Fight. For the Right. TO be liberal!
It would be interesting to have competition for the 'best album with a long title that mentions millions in it' top slot.
Do you actually think like this? Do you live in a cave? Is indie exclusively for white people? Is there an indie register you have to sign up for? Seriously go back to marrying your cousin because most people dont have time for your backwards, inbred ways.
I don't think anyone here's been racist (except tongue in cheekly). The message seems to be 'isn't it odd how indie music is predominantly made by and listened to by white folks, even when almost every other cultural barrier has fallen'.
what with all the poinful threads on here.
insideous isn't it
and not the disproportionate number of black people in indie bands.
There are also a disproportionate number of good indie bands to how many bands there are.
for white people!
good band/dude idk
in the hands of a big black man is one of lifes true joys
then I realised that I'd written them myself three years ago.
Maybe we do know who was supplying all the crack.
Hmmm casual racism is funny ^^
Does it really matter? Not something I ever notice with band's tbh.
...'scratch a liberal, and find a fascist'.
Nice of you to make the forum unwelcoming for black people (or any other non-white people for that matter) - however ironic you think your messages come across.
Some pretty ugly posts in here.
git it tae fuck.
