Par example; why aren't Zao mentioned in the same breath as Botch or Dillinger?
back in the day...............
to disagree with look see proof, i don't feel they offer anything new or interesting.
but i can understand why they have a following, even if i find them irritating, and good shoes aren't consistently overlooked.
and i wouldn't say good shoes were overlooked. they're kinda seen as a watered down maccabees, which is dumb, because they're a bit better.
Your 'avin a laugh surely.
but those female vocals are irritatingly samey
but their new album is on the same label as BSS so they'll gain some cool points and sell some more albums
i still think Low are woefully ignored.
maybe Blonde Redhead?
blonde redhead have a large following and everyone knows low surely???
at least not people i have met.
are we talking mainstream recognition?
i was talking they have a large following with ppl who listen to alternative music. obviously they do not have a big mainstream following but i wouldn't say they are consistently ignored, i think they are recognized as a great group.
*people if your being picky
The best rock band in the UK right now, and they get nary a mention on any of the sites I visit.
that may be something to do with the speed at which they release things/tour though
They were a brilliant punk rock/skacore band back in the day. Split up now. :(
because Zao whilst a fairly good band, are NOT as good as Botch or Dillinger
but Botch have early material that just sucks and people will argue over Dillinger all day whereas Zao have been pretty consistently awesome. I think they get a raw deal being missed out is all.
are light years ahead musically and lyrically of the majority of their peers, but have been overshadowed by one song.
However, I quite like that they're so under the radar, it makes me feel special!
After the second my interest kinda trailed off...
and they've still got time to make their mark proper, but yeah that's the spirit
next to no exposure anymore yet are still widely loved!
Sunnyvale Noise Sub-element, Sir Alice, My Latest Novel, Songdog, Mary Lou Lord, Maira Taylor, Koop, Devin Davis, Swearing At Motorists, Kelley Stoltz, Loney Dear, Husky Rescue, Gramme, shit I've depressed myself...
they should be regarded as the best, most innovative band going, but no.
I'll agree on *shels.
Caspian don't get nearly enough love either, best instrumental band to exist for some time, yet apparently TWDY are better?
that is all.
...and yes really nice people but was dissapointed with the album which is a shame
super super good
I reckon alot of DiSers would love this band, particularly seeing as one of the band is also in The Mae Shi...
