...a bit smartened up for that bigger picture eh?
they are signed to matador and are releasing a new album/touring in the next few months
anyone remember Amen playing the NME tour in 2000/2001? lol
being the JJ72 uber fan I am
all of 10 people watched them at t in the park. i imagine it might be slightly more next year.
this is almost making me want to buy nme
Can't wait to see them again in Oxford Nov 10th.
WWHHHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! (in an overloud and increasingly camp wail)
a bit cheesy!
They're a band with fuck in their name. That's all edgy and exciting and must make them really awesome and rock n' roll (in the same way Vines' Fuck the World and Babyshambles' Forever Fucked were billed by the NME as anthems for a generation a la Smells Like Teen Spirit purely almost entirely becuase a band was daring to use the "F" word.) The NME has a history of lapping that shit up so why would be odd they're doing it again?
PS Please note the above isn't intended as a criticism of Fucked Up or a reflection of Fucked Up's music. It's just I suspect Fucked Up's music isn't really the reason they appeal to the NME.
the article. then question motives.
why weren't holy fuck or fuck buttons or selfish cunts on the cover then? they have naughty words too.
Holy Fuck or Fuck Buttons aren't really far enough into their careers to get an NME front cover yet.
and pleased for them, although i feel a bit funny about it all.
theyre good though, and better than anyone else NME would put on the cover. and the singer is a really nice guy (throwing in the fact that i met him once there)
i guess it's cool they're on the cover and not Kings of Leon or some such crap but it still leaves a bit of a funny taste in my mouth. I'm sure the press will forget about 'em soon enough.
They are too good for nme :(
although I'll be interested to see what the readership figures for this issue are like
but shit, he cuts his head a lot.
I think its a great cover!
Why aren't Muse on the front cover?
but surely this is just going to have the same effect on issues sold as godspeed you black emperor did a few years ago...
everyone remembers that issue. At least they've done something that's going to confuse the newsagent browsers and Oasis fans.
Let's not buy it
that fucked up isnt going to be what people see on the newsstand anyway, as there's some free thing with the magazine so chances are there'll be a plastic cover.. they'd NEVER go for such an un-commercial cover otherwise
by the sounds of it.
another wonderful picture here:
Do we know who the photographer is yet?
credit to the NME for going back to the simple, image based, front cover style that looked so brilliant in the eighties, instead of the lurid heat/nuts/zoo copycat extraveganzas they have become accustom to.....but i'm sure that shit will be on the bag if it has got one.
so piss off NME.
