Who got the FREE tickets? There's still some seated ones available.
anyone else tried? any other places to get them?
if its free
let's go and ask Satan if he'll let us in.
an anti-Coldpay response was always going to follow wasn't it?
Beats a pot-noodle and a wank on a Monday night... <insert hilarious witticism>
if you're looking for people to get excited about Coldplay you are probably (with a few exceptions) on the wrong site.
I would genuinely prefer your stated alternative. Even without the wank. Even without the pot noodle.
I'm sure there are plenty of fellow DiS members who enjoy them.
I was only trying to help them out by letting them know that there were free tickets available.
and i for one appreciated the heads up. a free ticket to see them bash out some old tunes, and some of the few good new ones, is a pretty good deal really. and its on a monday, what else would you do on a monday? oh wait i know what MrScadenSir will be doing.
arent allowed to like coldplay, its uncool because more than 100 people know who they are
to realise that i am right. People take every oppurtunity they have to list as many obscure bands as possible, and are just pretentious as fuck.
Recent news articles on Metallica, M.I.A, Portishead and Beck (all of whom are established acts with a huge fanbase), features on My Bloody Valentine, Mudhoney and Elbow (once again, all big bands), as well as a huge backing from DiSers for Radiohead. There's very little pretension here when it comes to music.
that obscure, and you're just really thick and dont know much music? thats another option.
are about to be hit ....
People who like Coldplay are the product of trans-generational incest.
Dissers abandon bands they previously liked as soon as even 2 people have heard of them (including members of the band itself)
Winding people up on the internet is better than working.
You like Coldplay-fine.
You don't like Coldplay - fine.
You can't take it when people on, let's be honest here, a mainly alternative-orientated website slag Coldplay - fuck off.
Bringing out the big, bad F-word at such an early stage. Saturday detention duty for you, sir.
he's off to hell, its free y'know
The devil (unlike Mr Martin and friends) has all the best tunes.
I quite liked those Chicken and Mushroom pot noodles.
and the pot noodles aren't great either.
Is there no stopping this juggernaught of humour?
If it could be any pot noodle you liked, and a member of the opposite sex bringing you off...
Well, I'd turn down better bands than Coldplay for that kind of offer ;)
but each to their own right?
I think what gets peoples' goat is the tone of some of the posts that reek of "oh, how desperately uncool, someone likes coldplay (sweeps asymmetrical fringe to one side), atlas sound's new side-project with panda goatbeard is clearly superior, and only i've heard the exclusive leaked demos from www.pitchwank.cock
People like coldplay, they write pleasantly lilting atmospheric soundscapes that are musically and intelligently put together. GET OVER IT
People hate coldplay, they write turgid bland shitfests of songs for student bedwetters. GET OVER IT
The amount of negativity on the music board does wind me up a bit, particularly when said users don't ever contribute anything positive, but at the same time don't start crying if someone on here says Coldplay are shit- it's bound to happen.
I think its a bit unfair to accuse users on her of being overly negative (not in all cases, but in most cases). For example last month there were a whole spate of people posting about the Cure, rediscovering them, seeing them live, getting into the back catalogue. Barely a bad word spoken (and the Cure, lest we forget, are a pretty 'big' band).
But yeah... Coldplay are part of the reasons why sites like this exist. Whatever 'alternative' music means - dubstep, indie, grindcore, ambient, hip-hop... whatever:
Coldplay are an example of what it is an alternative to.
My comment was aimed towards the new users who come across as a bit slow on the uptake. And I'd never deny the amount of positivity on these boards (see the minimal techno thread), but I find it annoying when people come on here to slate other people's tastes.
I agree with this man^^^^
If ALL you do on these boards is slate other people's tastes then yeah... that's just stupid. But you can't expect it to be a total love-in all the time either.
There must be hunderds of forums in which you can express your love for Coldplay and find like minded friends, but here it's a bit like wearing an 'I love Rushdie' T Shirt in Tehran. Accept that people will not agree with you.
People have different tastes and all that. And yes, perhaps a topic on Coldplay isn't going to generate hundreds of 'OMGZ AMAZING!!11!' type responses (although they are a band that have been mentioned in the news section enough times). All about the balance innit!
Liek, sooooo geddoverit
I'd love to go and see them.
version of this thread. Cool.
i've just realised Grumpy Old Women is on BBC2. I'll get the chicken and mushroom in and a big box of kleenex to hand.
Bring on Greer, Hancock and Widdecombe.
Anne Widdecombe is just beautiful.
(so i've heard)
also find Anne Widicombe attractive.
You heard it hear first folks.
