do you trust them?
it's that they're everything that's wrong with "the alternative sound". And all their music leaves me cold and empty and rueing the time i've wasted listening to them. And they generally offer nothing that anybody with any sort of nous would see as interesting, or pleasurable, or even acceptable.
Wait, maybe i don't like Sonic Youth
I don't mind them. Massively overrated in my opinion *can of worms*
but i dont trust people who like Clapton either
I have watched John Mayall play tedious blues shit for two hours. The majority of blues rock can swivel. They r doin it wrong. That 12-bar thing is the biggest cause of lazy/boring songwriting
menfolk are all about killer grooves and widdly widdly wuh wuh wuhhh
you can't deny the manliness
people who don't like Blues, rock.
i don't not like it but i don't like it either
it's just there sometimes like i dunno, dust or something
don't really notice it unless there's too much of it
where does that leave me?
and want to cry.
who likes 'dance music' that much.
dont be daft
It's the older people who lie the drum n bass and other dancing music I don't trust
i feel fine about this
I love Dr. Feelgood, do I get a manly slap on the back– don't spill my pint etc.
it reminds me of the part in Ghost World where Seymour goes to the blues bar and that fucking awful band comes on.
Blues rock is 99% terrible. Songs like 'Mustang Sally' being played by fat old people who nod at eachother during solos. It's like drinking warm, flat coke.
They're all a bunch of fucking losers, though. Speaking of the blues, I'm listening to The White Album again and I have to say "Yer Blues" is utterly stunning. Anyone else share my opinion? Plus, it's more 'Pseudo-Blues', if anything.
I think of Russell Crowe singing in a band, or tedious Doors covers, or Jethro Tull. I don't trust anyone that 'likes blues rock'.
and who's gonna knock them?
has got to be heavy and fucked up though. Groundhogs/Cactus/Stackwaddy sort of thing is fine in my book. Eric Clapton/John Mayall dad nonsense if offensive balls.
Hopefully people are able to make the distinction!
