Any good? I've decided that 'The Riverboat Song' is really fucking awesome.
Though, yes though, Policemen & Pirates. I know the way of threads is one lover, one hater, one lover another hater but please not here, not Moseley Shoals, not today. Its a really good record with tunes. Let's just agree and revel in the nostalgia. I'm going to listen to it right now with a beer in my hand, cheers guys
of Ocean Colour Scene does it take to change a lightbulb?
to change the lightblub,
Three to ask Weller how it was done in the 60's!
I told this to OCS once at Glastonbury in the signing tent. They told me to Fuck Off.
funny. Thanks for that funny funny little anecdote.
Because when people insult me to my face I take it quite jovially
and he then seems surprised that they reacted badly.
I was making the point sarcastically that when you are directly insulting to people they usually don't respond too well
I would agree with that.
a joke though.
Just a joke.
Don't you ever joke with your mates and piss take?
poor pub rock.
A Wetherspoons pub full of past its sell by date pissy lager and one-rohypnol-from-a-date-rape "blokes".
Obviously OCS need to be mocked because their attitude to everything is so, so wrong, but it's a shame if people can't admit to quite liking Moseley Shoals.
happily admit it but it's piss poor and they are a terrible, terrible band. Plod, plod, plod guff.
HAVE A FUCKING WORD WITH YOURSELVES.
is a big pile of shit.
sand in your vagina?
yes,disliking OCS and their complex lyrics and mystical rhythms is at the heart of our declining society. If only we could all just let OCS into our hearts. . .
No that doesn't work very well.
Sorry I didn't pick up on the subtle nuance of the argument enough for you. Twat.
but I do admit to having given it a few listens when I was 16. i recall rather liking it at the time, but once you've discovered the whole Beatles back catalogue and a few extra Stones tunes there really is no need to listen to this record again.
Nice enough melodies but so painfully derivative in that way that leaves you cold. Doesn't appear to be anything personal on the record.
On an unrelated note I have decided that Big Star > > > > > most other bands ever
i kind of do.
i know all new music can be traced back to something else but when it feels just like someone may as well have done a bunch of covers as they've given nothing of themselves in their own record, it's pretty worthless.
that everything is derivative to a degree but when it feels like a blatant rehash it does gall slightly. In instances like that (that Jet song is a good example) you just think 'why not go straight to the source' rather than waste ear time on ersatz guff.
i kind of agree, and without getting into HUGE arguments this is how i feel about the Hold Steady, i would rather just listen to Bruce Springsteen than some poor imitators of him
it makes you "indier than thou" to divorce away from music you liked as a teenager. it's just reassessing things, innit.
although for some reason i haven't yet chucked my Catatonia CDs...
those Cd's are part of your life and i could never divorce myself of them no matter how uncool a music forum tells me they are.
I didn't agree with everything that Sandee Vagina had to say. Much like a giant baby, Sandee must think the whole world revolves around it and it's opinions and anyone who may not get EXACTLY what it means is WRONG WRONG WRONG. If you just want to read stuff that agrees with what you say why not just get a crayon and paper and sit in your bedroom quietly writing messages to yourself. Then jazz all over it whilst listening to OCS's AMAZING LIFE AFFIRMING oeuvre.
i totally agree with what you say but, you offer no argument you just express your opinions as if they are fact in a really arrogant way. When somebody dares confront you with the same tone you tell me to go fuck myself??
was a joke based on the response of someone further up hence why I said "no that doesn't work very well" I was trying to suggest that just using GO FUCK YOURSELF was useless as a riposte.
Gah! You can "confront" me as you wish but perhaps not take yourself so seriously.
What argument can I present about not liking OCS (this is the most bizarre exchange I have ever had) - I just don't like them. I find their music plodding and dull and very "beered-up bloke in a cricket hat". Do you want me to get rulers, calculators and graph paper to prove it? Perhaps if you find a stranger ranting about music they like/don't like and expressing opinions on a forum distressing to your sensibilities of conducting a well informed debate DiS is not for you. (May I suggest no one recommends Lipster as we may have a Code Red/tears before bedtime scenario). Lighten up. Express opinions! Opinions don't have to be facts. That's why they call them opinions "A belief or conclusion held with confidence but not substantiated by positive knowledge or proof".
i'll be sure to take it on board and not take myself so seriously. Judging by this though, maybe you could do the same? seriously though don't fucking patrionise me.
I just don't like arrogant remarks disguised as "opinions"
get over it.
It's a messageboad not the Nuremberg Trials.
"Don't fucking patronise me". Are you serious? Serious as cancer?
god you're great.
Yes i was serious Don't fucking patrionise me.
my dads harder than your dad.
You should lighten up though - that was a nice try so well done.
i am fine and light and loose and easy going and everything you seem to think i am not.
i am seriously phoning my Dad and Uncle now.
I am sure you are a very nice individual but please don't let a few rants from a total stranger about OCS on a messageboard wind you up so much. I am genuinely not trying to "fucking patronise you". Perhaps you are, dare I say it, a tad over sensitive?
Did your Uncle ever patronise you and tell you not to tell anyone?
OCS are still a massive pile of shit.
that anyone who slags it off is doing so because a music forum says they're uncool?
as i said, it is entirely ok to revise judgement on music you liked as a teenager. it doesn't make that music any less a part of your life, it just means you have some perspective.
jump to any conclusion. I agree with what you said.
I'm certainly not 'indier than thou'. It's a terrible record. It was then, it is now.
I did once have the album after the hype of Riverboat Song. Realised it was shit at the time and soon got rid.
Now THERE'S a band.
who really enjoyed this when it first came out, then went off them.
"Hundred Mile High City"'s alright though.
I loved that record when it came out.
But then I was a beer hungry, indie loving 16 year old who would gobbled up any OCS, Mansun, Oasis, Shed Seven, Blur, Pulp, Dodgy, Weller, Bluetones, Gene, Elastica, Sleeper, Echobelly, Gomez, Embrace... that hit my ears.
Only now we can see which of those bands' albums have stood the test of time.
Hindsight is a lovely thing but there's no point denying your past.
and say which of those bands are objectively good
OCS, Mansun, Oasis, Shed Seven, Blur, Pulp, Dodgy, Weller, Bluetones, Gene, Elastica, Sleeper, Echobelly, Gomez & Embrace. :D
But really, of those bands' albums I still listen to Attack Of The Grey Lanterns, Modern Life Is Rubbish, Different Class and Expecting To Fly semi-regularly.
and most of Blur.
but anything that even MIGHT BE responsible for Chelsea Dagger should be eradicated from all of history.
Brit-rock/brit-pop what ever it was called nostalger latly...
First Mansun, now OCS whats next?
Oh wait I just read them being mentioned...
really are no fun are ya heheh ;)
nostalger I could forgive, but Bluetons ? isn't that a disease that affects livestock !!?
thats bad ass
this is better than the last OCS arguement. Anyone agree ?
is that it has gone a LOT better than the Reef thread.
ago was obsessed with ocs,we just called him ocean colour nick.
