fashion - good
music - not so good
you cant just say that without supporting evidence!
seem to be the two most obvious bands in the "genre", both awful. I dont even think the NME talks about Nu-Rave anymore.
(everytime I write Nu instead of New, part of me dies inside)
nu must be the most hated prefix of the last 10 years
There's a new one kicking about for the same exact music, but i forgot what it's called...
I hate the way shops like Topman leap on the band wagon and start stocking up on bright hoodies and t-shirts with crazy patterns on too.
start off as a joke anyway?
is it still 2006?
in 2006 - now he prefers that kevin shields vibe. in 2010 you will too.
i feel like it should have a long time ago,
seriously, though, hasn't this discussion been had on dis / last.fm / etc. at least a hundred times? "new rave was just a topman / NME invention to describe bands that sounded like the klaxons and dressed themselves according to the latest casette playa trends, and it was bad".
so i'm starting to like new rave again. does getting Klaxons to the top of my last.fm charts count as post-cool?
it has to be. You were a loser if you did it before, but now you're just sad.
.... i think i might be sad.
that you just used the words jakes and fannies. If you were to say bam I would marry you. Tremendous words.
:( <--- see
I'm really looking forward to No-Rave.
hahahaha thats really clever
My housemate and I started a No Rave band 18 months ago. Then he started going to electro nights and it fell apart.
kind of disappeared last summer? Now the terms only used by really lazy people who want to describe a band who have a keyboard/synth as well as guitars and drums... or a drum machine instead of drums
If you can find me an exampe of "new rave" being used to describe a band in a review or other, this year? In a non-ironic context, where the band isn't the Klaxons? New rave isn't dead, it never existed. (Like Youthmovies... who the fuck are Youthmovies?)
'New rave isn’t a shallow attempt to chortle at the hil-a-rious ’80s. It’s artists trying to connect with the maximalism of that decade'
It's usually mainstream journalists who use it and it always sounds stupid.
Sorry, I don't have £10. I've got some spoilt cushions that would probably equate to this value, if you'd like to pop over later.
I've been told I'm typical post-indie rave-mod.
ive invented pu-rave
progressive nu rave
it doesnt smell of poo though
Nu Rave was just carrying on from where electroclash left off and was the self-indulgent whims of a lot of art students who go to pubs like the Cat and Mutton in Shoreditch, It'll be back next year in some form or another...Nu Rave was crap through and through...
how about nu-dave? how would that sound?
it was in reference to dad music, UR use of the joke has made me very mad
and its sub-genre 'ACHOO RAVE'
to sonic youth. but everyone is too cool to rave so they sit down around a stereo and discuss the back-catalogue of sonic youth.
IT WAS ALL WHIRLWIND, HEAT, VICKS VAPORUB, WHISTLES, WHITE DUSK MASKS, AND FLASH. WITHIN A WEEK WE KILLED MY PARENTS AND HIT THE ROAD (HEADING FOR A FIELD WITH A SOUNDSYSTEM IN THE WEST MIDLANDS).
the name of the genre when the foo fighters finally change their sound
when people take their shoes off and wear them on their hands and then go to the top of a hill and dance all night to xiu xiu.
+ 10 indie points
so it comes out like "shoe shoe"
i forgot to say that.
it's "shew shew" anyway, i know thise but shoe rave is closer to nu rave. so i win.
toilet samples FTW!
Pioneering act - We Sample Horses
hairy people get smooth...
smooth people get dead ...
(you had to be there)
Held on an ancient Indian burial ground ...
when people try to ban it, a protest.
I'm amazed that's not what the NME called The Horrors.
I WANT TO DO WHATEVER COMMON PEOPLE DO I WANT TO SLEEP WITH COMMON PEOPLE I WANT TO SLEEP WITH COMMON PEOPLE LIKE YOU RAVE
I want to break in, set up a P.A and get everyone in and dancing.
But what should we name it?
Kwik Rave (in and out before the 'babylons' catch on) OR
Rave Save (as if it were nineteen eighty-eight in yo face)
the difference being that the likes of Carter USM and PWEI were doing this well over 15 years ago, the difference being that they did it better, much better.
The clothes were better too, I'd pick Vans Lampins/Airwalk Jason Lee, New Deal jeans and Stussy T-shirts over the laughably embarrassing tat that Topman are selling 'The Kids' these days.
Things are getting worse........
i can't find the right pictures but he has the shapes in bright colours on his tshirts...
He definitely had the look before it was even 'a look'!
even down to the sunglasses indoors!
weren't widely available at the time!
It went down with that guy in Skins.
nothing to contribute to any discussion of nu-rave
is the word nu better than the word pnu?
i thought it was pnu-metal. So why nu-rave?
just wait... there will new-wave-o soon, but like a dullard pronouncing nouveau
