AT LAST A DECENT BAND.....
has anyone else heard of them ?
Are the 476,354,812,137 bands that came before them rubbish?
I'm not sure why anyone thinks I'm gonna listen to a band because they're "decent" though. "Really fucking brilliant", probably, "decent", of course not.
well maybe if you listen to it..... you might like them
a) there's someone trying to do a shameless surreptitious plug of them. Good bands have the confidence to not need to do that.
b) You seem to be implying they have a song called "Wam Bam Thank You Mam". Nobody could use a song title that obvious and not be derivative shit.
I will listen to them and give them a go, and admit if I'm proved wrong, but I wanted to post this first because I'm so sure I'm right.
They are of course derivative as fuck. Not shit, admittedly, just an utter mediocrity that sounds like so many other (better) bands that it's not worth anyone's time or attention.
a) Why the fuck do these people bother spending time and effort if they're bring absolutely nothing new to the table?
b) Given they sound like every other middling indie band of the past seven years, how the hell can you be saying "at last a decent band". They sound like all the other ones.
I don't mean to be so vitiriolic (I'm a bit ill today so a bit moody as a result) but I stand by everything I've said, even if I wouldn't normally be so open about a new band I've never heard of. But seriously - unless they suddenly dramatically improve and find their own voice they're just wasting their own time and everyone else's.
Seeing as you're JAG'ing for both of them I can't help but tar them with the same brush...
eats lights, becomes lights are quite good though...
and your idea of good is ?
artists that have a healthy mix of experimentation and melody and know how to emote and intrigue and challenge and hold your attention.
And in my opinion both this lot and hot melts FAIL on all counts - I feel robbed of five minutes of my life for listening.
not the finished article by no means but i can see potential....
better than the majority of the decent bands your all going on about
what is actually actually classed as being above a decent standard?
if the music industry wasn't in such a decline due to the vast amounts of music being flung at ppl these days bands like this might have a chance.........
problem is..... theres like a million other bands your need to search and listen to first before you get to one worth listening to.
