If you want to listen to something miserable and Scottish, reach for the Arab Strap? Amirite?
I guess. But they're totally different beasts really...
Glasvegas aren't bad they're just being over played, they don't deserve all the hate they seem to be getting on DiS lately. Just because they're in the charts now, nobody gave a shit before...
Klaxons were the most obvious example of this. If you look back on threads circa 2006, there is much postive feeling towards them.
Yet, when they won the Mercury, this success was totally belittled.
Not saying there ever was much positive feeling towards Glasvegas on DiS, but commercially successful bands (esp. UK ones) get an often subjective rough ride round these parts if you ask me.
...and yes, I know most commercially successful UK bands are superficial dogshit anyway, But I think Glasvegas are far more passionate than all the NME skinny-jeaned cockwits.
pisses me off about this site. Glasvegas are hardly shit, whilst it ain't the best record I've ever heard, it really does have some good moments.
I didn't even say they were shit, I don't mind that FORGET YA DA HE'Z GONE song, I just think Arab Strap are better at being Scottish and miserable.
GO GO INTERNET!

they were shite 2 years ago when they done crap rock-a-billy libertines sound alike shite, and they are shite now they are ripping off the jamc
