Nearly all the early punk bands, The Fall,Art Brut !!!!
some of their riffs are pretty unusual at least
I just can't work out what it is.
they win this thread.
i think he just says 'Urge Overkill' as an answer to something he cant be bothered to answer properly
i read that about Urge Overkill too, but listening to their records they sound like they were decent enough musicians. You can only cover up so much with studio trickery. I think it was more that they were so coked off their tits that was the problem.
Huggy Bear couldn't really play, could they? Not that it really mattered.
the drummer seems to be able to drum a bit but thats about it hmmm wonder where the problem lies.
only band I have seen mime live, true fact
Do you mean person/persons, that simply cannot string 2 notes together with any competence on their chosen instrument, or just bands that can play well enough but dont have the technical skill of say, Led Zeppelin or Tool?
keyboards: Linda McCartney in Wings
guitar: Luke Steele from Sleepy Jackson,
Richard Patrick from Filter.
ok meg can play but she is so underwhelming.
by their technical ability then?
are you basing this on Sleepy Jackson live shows?
Anybody who has seen them live, especially circa 2003, will surely be able to attest.
is true, although they'd improved an awful lot the last time I saw them.
I remember Suede's drummer being pretty bad early in their career.
and Richey Manic on guitar
she is improving slowly mind
But i think with these sort of bands its just that they sound SO glossy and perfect on CD that they can't help but sound naff live
