what a great stereo selection.
is probably the worst NME ever.
Why the fuck would they let Mark Beaumont edit the Letters page?
are you still buying this dross?
are any of the enemy capable of writing?
sounds a tad....well, rubbish?
if only because most of the people who hear about it will go "sorry, Farrah Fawcett said what?"
Dont support NME,
Its go so down hill since that man who looks like a rat took over,
The writing in that magazine is so naive and soulless, it nothing to offer a music fan.
I was caught up in passion, sorry.
are a great band and deserve to be on the cover
It is indeed no good, and don't buy it anymore because it makes me actively annoyed.
start a thread of names,
like a petition, to get rid of the nme.
Like when kids get people to sign there petition for a local skatepark or something lol.
its like reading 'heat' magazine.
It's a shame.
with bands and stuff. i wonder if they print stuff about kerry katona?
and how her Johnny Borrell share a twix.
sorry to end the "nme is shit" train.
youre just saying that to be controversial
you like about it?
by kerry katona.
"as soon as i tried it i was hooked" declares kerry, who this week spoke out about her addiction publicly. "johnny told me it would be okay, nothing too; y'know, intense" she pauses and looks to the lights above my head, her body language showed that she was trying to be strong, but the occasional shake in her hand said otherwise. "before i knew it i was on 5 a day, and then 10, and then i couldn't even leave the house."
kerry has spoken publicly for the first time about her addictions, and the involvement of johnny borrell was somewhat of a shock to his fans. "jonny ain't done nowt" testifies amy, 17 - one of johnny's many superfans. mr borrell has refused to make a statement to indieheat about his apparent involvement in ms katona's addiction and eventual breakdown.
in indieheat this week, read all about kerry's "dark times", how she struggled to cope with an addiction on a day to day basis and how her friends and family helped her through this hell. she talks to indieheat alongside her supportive new boyfriend john imgoingtosellmystory smith.
A++++++ would read again :D
just dont like coz its mainstream and anything mainstream must be shit and scares you. sometimes i worry for you lot on here.
i like harry potter; that's pretty mainstream, right?
not harry potter, music i mean surprisingly...
in all fairness, i probably would see a lot of the bands the nme covers. it's just the way they report it that annoys me. it's more about the people in the band than the music, and has been for years.
you'll find most of the people on here will call it shit. When it's good, has some credibility or originality, people will say they like it.
I've never known someone to actively and thoroughly live a life of anti-mainstream, that's one of the worst arguements possible.
seems like a competition to name the most obscure band and claim they are amazing. the courteeners are a good band with a quality album, the reason you lot dont like them is because they may be seen to be a bit 'trendy'. thats obviously the reason because they clearly aint shit. so dont give me that bull about appreciating good mainstream music.
svenrokk being negative about the courteeners in this thread, do you?
that mainstream music gets credibility when due, and some of it obviously doesnt is all im saying i dont agree with. just using courteeners as an example seen as tho they were this week!
i checked and turns out you're wrong, and they're shit, and we're right.
tough luck eh?
but there was one negative post about that band here. the majority of the negativity was towards the nme and the standard of its journalism. using them as an example was probably a bad idea as they've not got a lot of hate off these boards. if you wanted to win the argument about DiS users hating the mainstream you could have come up with a better example. also, they're not exactly mainstream are they?
jamie_summer's post (and the one below). ha!
Because they do give Manchester an awfully unrepresentative name.
with the balls to right 'im a morrisey with strings' deserves credit
If anything, that line comes across as sheer arrogance without any substance behind it.
That thing they did on Hollyoaks was beyond excruciating.
most people here arent fans of lad-rock types. NME on the other hand cant stop touting bands like the enemy, courteeners, kasabian, reverand and the makers etc as revolutionary.
Plus what everyone's said about the gash writing.
IF YOU CAN'T STAND THE HEAT...
Maybe he works for NME,
and we've just ruined his life.
Sorry Good Sir.
i would take a job there, because i would get rid of most the bands they write about. i agree that they big up too many shit bands. however, there is substance behind bands recently like foals and the courteeners. if they were more underground and not in nme im sure you lot would like them.
I dont have a problem with the bands NME may represent (well some)
I just find the magazine to be soulless and uninspiring these days.
When a music magazine stops writing about the music and instead writes about what famous people were at a gig that week, its no longer a music magazine of my interest.
