Pot calling the kettle black?
they're the most tedious band around at the moment, and the worst thing is, thanks to the nme and their ilk, they actually believe they are cutting edge. if i wasn't in such a foul mood right now, this link would make me laugh my balls off...
releasing a new album on 13th October?
i'd be facsinated to discover what the Kaisers Chiefs think are 'boring', then i might buy them a big mirror as a birthday present and write "boring" on the top of it
but an awful lot of their interviews lately have sounded like coke-talk...
unless you mean coke zero, they seem far too bland to go near anything which might give them street cred.
"didn't seem to be enjoying themselves" and were "going through the motions".
Which is fair enough. The Kaiser Chiefs (though yes musically a bit pants and boring) definitely seem to be having a lot more fun with what they're doing than a lot of bands.
but i think the fact that they have so much fun tends to paper over the fact that, as you pointed out, they're really not that good.
when they first started doing what they were doing, although it's obviously influenced by Britpop, there were one of only a few bands doing that kind of thing. And now everyone is doing that kind of thing.
So, although they're at the forefront it's everyone sounding like them rather than the other way round.
Obviously they now need to follow through on this weird, fresh and radical album though...
that is all
(as everyone else has said and will say).
Ruby ruby ruby ruby ruby!
To the same tune.
"Singer Ricky Wilson said some bands 'didn't seem to be enjoying themselves' and were 'going through the motions'. "
even if their albums do bore me a bit.
I really can't understand the hate,most of the so called DIS favourites couldnt put on a live act to save their lives.
But kaiser chiefs have wowed me every time iv seen them. They were better than Radiohead and sigur ros at rock werhcter and both those bands are amongst my favourites.
So yeah boring on record, entertaining live.
were enjoyable live, but i think they're very clever in that way, because a lot of their songs have these 'aaaaaaaahhhhhh' moments in the middle, or terrace chant vocals, which are obviously designed to go down well in a live setting. as you said, the albums bore you. this is because musically they're very average. they just make a little go a long way live. i don't think that should protect them from the mauling they deserve
that sums up what i think of them quite nicely.
They put huge amounts of effort into their live concerts.
It really isn't just their anthemic music. It's their on stage attitude.
I like them, they are a ray of light in the shit storm which is the popular indie scene. (not sure what that is mind, but Franz Ferdinand would be the only other decent band in it.)
Argh I might as well give up. This is DIS after all.
it should be noted that Luke Pritchard recently accused the Pigeon Detectives of something similar.
am i right? am i right?
to be the 'indie scene' pretty much says it all really
it's supposed to be about how lonely and utterly dreadful being alive is, and that there is no hope out there.
just like a Ryan Jarman interview, "i'm not going to name names." no, i'm just going take a cowardly and very general swipe at the slew of bands who we sound exactly like. pathetic. pots and kettles you fat ginger turdburglar
should we expect lots of brass?
Flirt with brass and later rue it
outside of a HMHB SONG
A singer who runs around on stage like a loon does not make KCs a good or innovative band. Ruby has to be one of the laziest pop by numbers, repetetive piles of shite of recent years. Culd this just be another example of Ricky's hilarious comoic genius. He can't poosible hae intended people to treat this as serious coming from him
album is produced by Mark Ronson, then I'm afraid there gonna sound like everything else thats shit and boring.
produced a lot of great rhymefest stuff to be fair. but he's sort of in a bad place production wise now with his coffee table classics..
This field intentionally left blank.
The Pigeon Detectives lash out at The Metroes as being "bandwagon-hopping cunts", The Metroes lash out at Burial for "showing his face just like every other fucker, the bandwagon-hopping cunt", popular music continued to eat itself and somewhere, a small child overhears Ruby by the Kasier Chiefs on the radio and starts crying blood.
