no sense of humour from the editor there. tosser.
My cat would LOVE that box.
but maybe my ears are broken. It's kinda weird, since I was listening to that song when I clicked the link. :O
I love the way he just tosses it back in the box. What did you think it was going to be? A new bike?
Expect it leaked real soon.
are NME cheeky, album leaking cunts?
Just the look on that guy with the long hair's face as he tossed it back inside, as though Christmas was ruined for him. I think he thought Chris Martin had sent him a new tricycle or something. Anyway, LOL
he comes across a complete toss-pot.
its not like anyone will buy the danana album anyway, so who cares?
and when i was there they had an a cd with a couple of tracks from 'the forthcoming The Rapture album' (pieces of the people we love) and the dude was telling me no matter how hard he tried he could not figure out how to rip them to his computer at home...
that's because a lot of new promo CDs have copy protection that is so prohibitively hench it stops you actually playing the CD on anything other than a prehistoric discman?
They also had the pre release of the last Jurassic 5 album which had no protection on it what-so-ever so i copied that. Pity it was rubbish.
also why are promo copies going out now if the album is like four months away? why not send them two weeks before release? i honestly don't understand it.
you've earned it
to listen to an album a load of times and absorb it. then write a review you're happy with. then get it checked and edited. then get it sent to the printers, and have the issue out in the shops a week or two before the album drops?
maybe 4 months is a lot, but 2 weeks is stupid.
that was just a figure i plucked out of the air without thinking.
actually, two weeks sounds fine to me on second thoughts. i'll stick with that.
Although unlikely, considering the size of the thing
Also, I love how surprised they sound when they find the CD. "It's a CD!".
Quelle surprise, you're a fucking music magazine.
In the clip I saw the staff's reaction seemed to be largely muted indifference, which is kinda what you'd expect given that I'm sure they get fuckloads of CDs via various promotional stunts every week and hoped a large box would have something other than a CD in it.
It was a midly amusing stunt but the NME staff were hardly outraged (or even vaguely pissed off by it). Reading this thread it looks like people feel Dananananakyroyd have shown up the NME in some way but that seems to be entirely in people's perceptions of the NME and of the band.
There doesn't seem to be any of that in the clip. That link was a massive anticlimax.
and the NME obviously didn't think so. That's all I got from it.
I think anyone'd go "fuck it; it's a CD" in the circumstances. I'm sure there seemed to be a couple of people smirking in the background.
Factor in the fact you can pretty much bet your bottom dollar on that this won't be the first time someone's tried this and their reaction makes pefect sense...
they also got all preachy about the environment, thus making them look like MASSIVE SQUARES. Point Danananana.
Someone made a couple of throwaway comments. There is a huge world of difference between that and "getting all preachy". Even by NME standards this is an utter non-story.
if this is people getting 'all preachy' then heaven forfend you actually meet, er, a preacher.
seriously, all you clefts using this as ANOTHER pointless crutch with which to beat NME with are really grasping at straws.
why would you be happy about getting a Dananananakroyd CD anyway?
or are you a fanny? maybe both... i dunno
oh but why the hell are the NME fillming the opening of a box?
I asked for a promo from there label and they told me no :(
SHould I write to the NME and ask for that one?
why do you care?
I've writen about tuns of band for 3barfire and my blog. BAnds big n small n all sorts of genres from dreamy pop to grindcore.
stay in your box, you're only allowed to like dubstep!
I will get back into my modified bass bin with a little bed in it and close the door again...
Conor McNicholas appears to have had his sense of humour bypassed
something akin to the "MORRISSEY = RACIST" debacle.
The disappointment on their faces is lovely though. Like the kids who wanted a Dan Aykroyd CD but their dad got it just ever so slightly wrong.
what is that supposed to mean??
this is exactly what i thought - that looks like somewhere totally devoid of joy. ok so you don't expect it to look like a flaming lips gig or something but ffs, you're the nme! not an insurance brokers! all those gloomy people. one (1) woman laughed.
was surprisingly light?
they would be
