You think they like Sigur Ros?
I like them.
that makes me think "i can't be bothered to think about your name so i'm not gonna bother with the music"
the name is too kerazy for them to ever be taken seriously
they sound quite good, nothing like sigur rós though. they're playing in reading so i may see them. however they have klaus says buy the record and luke leighfield as two of their top friends so i dunno, maybe they are a bit shit.
Did you listen to 'Put Your Slippers On'? MASSIVE rip-off of 'Hoppipolla'.
listening to it again thats a pretty blatent rip-off
Though it still sounds gorgeous.
I've never been so content and so angry at the same time before.
but granted the name is pretty long.
they make very lovely music. I don't really get the Sigur Ros rip-off thing. Tim's a nice guy. I'm sure it's an accident.
the name gets them noticed, maybe sometimes for the wrong reasons, but all publicity is good publicity apparently.
Sigur Ros thing is pretty annoying to be honest. If you think that fair enough, but to me it's just a lazy comparison. They make pretty music, so do we. That's about as much as I can see. Which bit of Slippers sounds like Hoppipolla?
Slippers might even have been written before Takk was out. Maybe we should sue. Ha.
We'll have to agree to disagree.
about 3 years ago. I want them to get huge so I have a claim to fame.
on possibly the worst bill of all time, and i expected something Foals-ish with their name, but they were quite lovely.
because they are lovely.
they are playing bush hall on the 31st of march, next tuesday, headlining with support from blindfold and glaciers. it is £6 via wegottickets or ticketweb, which is cheap as chips.
that concludes the jag for this afternoon.
