tears! simply perfect.
thats just silly
but he definitely isn't the most important
do you party hard, sir?
probably the obesity
or are you just humouring me.
in the sense that I think (or maybe hope) that one day he'll be heralded as the true musical genius of our time. Herald is such a bad word.
Anyway, thread isn't a wind-up. Surely someone agrees with me?
and I actually had a really awesome summary explaining why in the original post. I'm going out now, but I'll repost that when I get home.
Seriously. No-one gives the slightest fuck.
you frigging ponce. And stop listening to vampire weekend!
Herald, go listen to The Wolf and Close Calls With Brick Walls. The Wolf is like, just a huge epic ballad album with layer after layer of tracks. It's pretty much the biggest album I've ever heard. Close Calls is more of a concept album, and he learns to sing on it, too. Lots of experimental stuff, lots of noise etc. You also have fun stuff like The Japan Covers. His old EPs are fantastic too. You're best checking out some of his live show on youtube to really get what it's all about. And read as much about the man as possible, check out interviews, etc. It's all part of the experience. The whole concept and idea, the message, the stage persona. It all contributes to this. An unbelievable artist.
you can listen to all of that on his website, andrewwk.com
It's all streaming there, everything.
but haven't listened to any of this new stuff. Thanks for the tip off.
you mean embarrassing, then yes, he is very "best and important"
who pointlessly lists 100 bands in his favourite music section. How's that newest Clap Your Hands Say Yeah record? Good?
I'm just saying
"So let's get a party going. Now it's time to party and we'll party hard"
Is pretty embarrassing.
using that lyric from that song is pretty embarrassing and predictable, too. It's clear you really aren't familiar with the musician in question so why, exactly, did you feel it necessary for you to interject. Admittedly it's not exactly a disruption to a hearty discussion but you know what I mean. I would ask you to do me a favour and listen to some of this stuff with an open mind, but I think you've already decided what to think. As far the above poster, jamaican_bobsleigh, explain how. It's most definitely "shit" in regards to content, discussion, etc. But considering you seem to be personally attacking me with your comment (I don't know what has offended you), I guess you're of the opinion that MY opinion is shit, not necessarily the thread. In which case, no. The lack of response, in particular positive, from people on the drownedinsound forum neither confirms nor denies Andrew WK's shitness or lack of. So, what are you trying to say? That I'm wrong for being a supporter of this artist? That the lack of engaging discussion is my fault? Or that my making fun of other people for listening to Clap Your Hands Say Yeah and Vampire Weekend is wrong, because, clearly, those bands are better than AWK? I don't know. Maybe you thought that I thought everyone would agree with me. I expected the complete opposite. This thread has kind of gone to plan, though I did expect one or few people to chime in with their AWK love - I think there's quite a few fans on here.
It's a shame you haven't made many posts. I can't really make fun of you without find out what the crap you listen to, can I!?
is like having someone pound your head against a wall with a drum machine while an idiot yells in your ear. What's the appeal?
Didn't he play on Ys?
back up your point, what is he doing that hasnt been done before? i am not questioning your opinion, im just curious to see why you have come to that conclusion
This site's mentos
I think I was being a drunk dumbass. That's me.
myah...relevant dive bar.
and suddenly the Lib Dems go evil, turns out he was the moral conscience of the party!
if anyone has actually ever liked andrew wk or if they're just trolling?
i always got the impression that he was completely shit
Like a plague to all senses.
That is all.
I love Andrew W.K. and am convinced that people either don't get it at all or only stopped paying attention after I Get Wet when everyone decided he wasn't cool anymore. One of the funnest shows I've ever been to in my life was an Andrew W.K. show. I have never seen someone make a crowd so happy and the sense of fun and community in that crowd was like nothing i've ever experienced.
You don't know shit about Andrew W.K. if you don't spend some time with Close Calls with Brick Walls. An eclectic mix of Beefheart, Zappa and weird jazzy, psychedelic rock it's only topped by it's sister album of rarities Mother of Mankind. If he were to continue on this musical path he could end up an even more subversive musical genius then he already is. I also think nothing sounds like I get Wet and The Wolf is sonically one of the loudest, brashest albums ever released. NME gave it a 9/10 at the time though they would backtrack on that now.
I just with this guy would put out more music and tour more. His talents lie in continuing his musical evolution.
And have I just been merked?
