nah jokes. Black people can't do songwriting innit lol
when he said black people can't do songwriting
Wolf Like Me
Even though it's produced by a white guy
the main one was black. and 6' 6. they've broken up now and he's joined the chicago bulls
has he really joined the basketball team?
dude apoligised for standing on our drumkit when we played with them once in a very bashful way. i find it weird when really tall people are shy.
when he's laying he looks insane. he didn't join chicago bulls, he's in a band called o children now
he's really nice. though he is one of those people who has a fixed expression on his face and a really monotone voice, he could be telling you something really funny, really sad or whatever and he'll always be the same.
his brother played in the NBA about 10 years ago.
Bono Must Die were shit though.
did you ever see him stand next to fred macpherson when he drummed for ox eagle lion man? i have never seen two mor different looking people together
i've never seen him play with Ox Eagle, though he told me he got kicked out because Fred couldn't take the fact that he used to date Peaches Geldof before him. This however could be a lie.
that is 2 men of 6 foot 6 she's been with. i think him and fred are friendly? bono must die played ox eagles single launch. i like fred a lot
and sung on a Desert Sessions album, so i don't take everything he says too seriously.
I've never met Fred but i hear he is really nice from a friend who has known him since primary school. He dates the 17 year old from Ipso Facto now. THE BAND THAT I FORMED (sort of).
true story. are they 17!?! how did you form them?
the rest are 21/22
i knew Samantha (bass player) from previous times when she played with Theortical Girl and my old band played with them a few times.
Anyway they needed a drummer, and i knew someone who looked exactly like them and liked all the same bands and played drums! So yeah i didn't form them, but i found them the most perfect drummer ever. Do i get credit for it? No, they spin some yarn about finding her on a bus tapping on the window or some shit, i dunno. Besides, "oh we found her through a friend" or something doesn't sound as cool so i can see their point.
I love them really, i hope they do get big and famous, though they are part of this post-horrors scene that's quite popular at the moment along with the likes of Hatcham Social, Electricity in our Homes and i guess the afformentioned O Children so sadly my cynical head reckons they'll be lucky to get an album out on an indie label before splitting up.
They've all got boyfriends, sadly. I think Samantha is teh hottest lolz!
samantha looks like she's actually from the 30s, she's grogeous. is cherish the keyboard player? theyre drummer is amazing, she goes mad live. i saw them play with ox eagle at the hoxton bar and grill, and i kept watching her. and that might be where fred met cherish. omdz indie power couple!
i think they'll get bigger then most of the southend bands, because they're all HAWT
i want answers. always thought they were shit but it would be cool if he did!
i was joking because he's black and tall
HOW COME DEY GOT DA MOBOS BUT IF WHITE PEOPLE HAD DA MOWOS DEYD BE RACIST
white people are generally derided when they try to blatently rip off "black" music but the only "popular" alternative is to play music which has been shamelessly appropriated from "black" music from years ago, unless you're in an oompa band or some shit.
that are influenced by the way black people sing. that always sounds super lame
I did a laugh out loud, but I usually hate these sorts of posts. You win.
Any music which has an origin anywhere is allowed in.
they award all music! of all genres! including "urban"
We truly are not worthy!
what black people are.
who are you arguing with? i don't think many people were looking for white power on DiS
and i dont think thats right and you should be ashamed of yourselves.
"mobos aren't racist/mowos would be" thing
i think the communal DiS stance is that we're sick of being backed into a corner by the black community and we just want our culture to be recognised and celebrated. also, i want to see more white people in high powered jobs
but srsly, someone give me an opinion :(
because black people are a minority
they have their own awards show to celebrate their culture in white society. if there were MOWOs it mould be the majority of people and shut out a small amout of people
theres nothing worse than grown men wearing cowboy hats
if you look i described the MDC patch on the back, and the fact is levis and has badges on it and jacob from converge has a similar one.
....but, this is how rumours get started, rumours become stereotypes and when you repeat stereotypes enough they become FACTS!
these kind of things can lead to me deciding wearing it was never a good idea, and at the moment i am rather fond of it
err...what I mean is, stick to your guns...wait, hold on.....
youve made an enemy tonight, pardner!
thinking about Audioweb!
which is obviously the real answer :
at the indie rock show. One of my favourite indie pop track of music all time, written by black man Sean Padilla.
At every single show, I am the only one who looks like me; the only sign of melanin in one big sea of ivory. My FUBU shirts and Tommy jeans…their bowling shirts and dirty Vans…I look just like a thug amongst the dressed-down Pavement fans. It shouldn't even matter that I'm the only black guy at the indie-rock show. I stand in a crowd and still feel alone. Some loser at the Mercury said, "I just want to let you know Jay-Z's at Austin Music Hall. I think you're at a different show" (that's not funny, man). Everyone is standing still (nodding heads and folded hands), looking at me like a freak because I have the nerve to dance. I ask my black friends to try out something new and come with me to the show; they're so reluctant to go. There's more to music than rap and R&B, but they say rock is a white man's game. I know Chuck Berry wouldn't feel the same. I told a white friend the opening band was "crunk." He didn't understand the slang. He asked if I was in a gang. I wonder if I will live to see the day when I see rock bands on BET and black girls dance to GBV…and I wonder if white folks who like Jay-Z often feel as alienated as me.
