i pressed enter.
why did i do that?
But they come across (the chick at least) as quite unpleasant people.
stole whole songs by chiptune artists
play terrible 15 minute sets
threatened to get partyshank thrown off all their other dates together because "they're ripping [crystal castles] off"
refused to let any other band into their dressing room when they played in york
make terrible music for scenester shitbags
FOR THE LADS!!!!!!
she has one of those weird model noses that make me feel ill, i just think the equipment line has a perverted/rustic charm.
When confronted they said they didn't realise it was theirs, even though at the time CC didn't own a keyboard stand.
Or are you making a funny?
They were never that good in the first place. They rip off chip tune artists and god knows what else.
but they're definitely unpleasant people. This matters less to me nowadays somehow.
poorly written, poorly mixed electro that rips off pretty much everything of that genre before them, as far as the whole nintendo electro goes there's much better out there than them
she is amazingly hot though, I reckon Ethan's been grooming her from an early age waiting for the right time to tap it
I can't understand why everyone thinks she's so hot though, she looks like an deep-south inbred boy in drag.
only heard the album a few times and kinda like it.
By sounds of it she's nice and controversial which is a bonus.
with an attitude and a bit of charisma, people are going to be forever swooning over them, Kim Deal was never amazingly atractive and look at how many indie boys go on about her, not nowadays obviously, she's seen better days
they steal things...but have the gaul to accuse others of stealing off them
"THEY STEAL STUFF!"
"THEY ACT LIKE CUNTS"
just makes me like them tonnes more.
so its pretty funny. but i don't think they do it to rile people up, i think they're just cunts. intent is everything
man, either listen to some dance music or shoot yourself, i mean jeez. people chattin shit about them reinventing electro, nigga you ever been in a club in yo fuckin life? get the fuck outta here
can do it in 2 minutes...
but you can;t look hot in 2 mins....tha's where the rest of us fail
surely not other artists*?
*i will concede that partyshank are fucking horrible, but point stands.
And they don't give a fuck, meaning they're pretty punk.
Not very punk rock at all.
It's pretty much is
He was in Weird War after all...
Seriously....you should read his history of the birth of rock n roll...it makes sense
I don't mind the Not Giving A Fuck attitude, but I think a line has to be drawn somewhere otherwise Towers Of London would epitomise punk today, and then we know there's no hope...
of their scenester appeal. Also, the best tracks are when Alice Glass isn't screeching over the music. What did she actually contribute to the album?
For fuck sake...the whole defence her scenester fans built for her rests o nthe fact SHE HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH THE MUSIC.....otherwise she is also responsbile for stealing the music....she herself and the other bloke says so.
He satrted the band after a sreies of failed nu-metal bands....made the musci ..then brought her in to sing.
You can't have it both ways
I'll stop now
suggested, so I'll refrain from calling you a moron.
She's great to watch live, but as most of the music (or all) is I assume created by the guy, then what does she offer? Nothing lyrically, and her vocals are screechy. Good live, though.
Through the wall he threw me,
I knew he'd never hurt me,
Daddy watched me sleeping
Praying for you silently
Daddy's love makes me whole,
without it I am so secure,
The only girl he'd ever hurt
The one who smells so pure.
that their album cover has a picture of two people who look RLY COOL.
it's not hugely innovative (but how many albums are these days?) but there are some insanely catchy tracks on there.
but it doesn't really have much staying power, so It's sort of slipped from memory
still pretty swanky when crimewave comes on at club nights though
The albums got a lot more minimal songs than I had expected given their image.
but they come across as quite nasty people.
But embarrassing try hards
unimpressed but maybe ive just had my fill of electro stuff
