it's a great album
but this band are very good indeed
about not speaking about things you just don't understand.
Maybe I'm missing something - is there something inherent to people who work in offices and teenagers that renders them incapable of making reasoned, intelligent observations about... an indie band, now? Moreover, by your attitude, it seems that either you occupy some grand position in life that gives you greater perspective than people under the age of 20 and people with salaried jobs - or you're a massive twat.
Please think about thinking before you post.
P.S. While I'm here, I'd like to reiterate all of the bad things I've said about Johnny Foreigner, whatever they may be.
Hardly seems worth it now, but what the hey: I know exactly what you meant. Indeed, I still do since you've just repeated what you stated (without substantiation or reason) in your previous post; but in a slightly more long-winded fashion.
And my retort is simple: You have failed to understand what I said. To wit: Whereas our hypothetical band member is just a musician (and if he was all that clever, he'd have a real job... or be in a better band), whereas the people who frequent this site encompass a vast spectrum of intelligence: From Oxbridge grads, of which there are a few on this site, to people who have trouble articulating or understanding simple rhetorical positions - like you.
Maybe you still think I'm wrong. Well let me pose a question: What is it exactly about being in a little-known guitar band that makes it so easy to defend yourself against people who, as you and I well know, could be literally anyone?
When you find the answer to that, then - and only then - may you deploy your ad hominem attacks. I'm particularly looking forward to the follow-up to "Moreover, by your attitude, you are boring". Classic.
Or Tom from Editors ;)
I sincerely doubt that they'll ever be one of my favourite bands but their album is certainly an enjoyable listen.
theres nothing really to get, their just big unprententious fun songs
from the stupid names to their twee fey indie looks. No substance whatsoever. They annoy me MASSIVELY.
Don't talk nonsense.
a really good pop band who make the odd jubious line about misfits tshirts and star tattoos. everyone sings from what theyve grown up around, just be glad theyre not from a council estate from coventry.
kind of let down by the vocals though. i find them a bit irritating.
that said, salt pepper and spindarella is one of my favourite songs this year.
though love Salt pepper and spindarella, thats a GREAT pop song
do do do do do do do do dooo ler do do do do do do
that's why johnny foreigner are shit.
I mean, really? Sounds like you havent even listend to Johnny Foreigner... either that or you havent ever listend to the Wombats.
you may need some new ears in that case
the johnny foreigner singer has a more annoying voice.
Maybe more than is reasonable, maybe, but they are definitely The Good Stuff. Salt Pepa and Spinderella should be on every indie club's playlist from now until the end of time.
