a dark day for music.
they are Codeine Velvet Club now. They did a cover of I Am the Ressurection that is worse than anything the Fratellis ever done!!
jamming screwdrivers in my ears.
The fratellis also suck balls. That guy sucks!
as far as I can gather
They annoyed the hell out of me. I hope the new project bombs too.
the witch is dead.."
They didn't do what the Kooks have been doing, pretending they have some kind of musical future.
Got to kind of respect them for that, in a way. Respect them more for not inflicting our ears with their shit any more, though.
its apparently cool to not like them tho
FUCK YOU FRATELLCUNTS!
coming across as very bitter people
anyone would think you were new to DIS
If they were a small time indie band who still made songs as catchy and enjoyable as them, this thread would have a totally different tone...
Shame that The Fratellis were neither catchy nor enjoyable then.
Hey, it's an accusation of snobbery! Never heard that before when slating a band that's in any way popular.
even if you didnt enjoy them, you have to admit that theyve done a few catchy tunes? surely their catchiness is not really up for debate?
but AIDS is also catchy.
I didn't find them catchy, just mediocre.
or do you disagree?
I think it's because most people posting in this thread thought they were dreadful
youre pleased cos they wont make music anymore? theyll FINALLY drop that gun held to your head, forcing you to listen to them?
A shit band that were pretty popular disbands...of COURSE Dis was going to react this way. Part of the fun.
anyone would think you were new to DiS.
One need only look at the related artists on Spotify to realise they belong to that side of modern music which really is 'dumbing down rock music'. I don't think there's a lot of people here that belong to the 'Hey fuck it, it's catchy, unpretentious and completely inoffensive so we'll let it slide' school of music enjoyment. The Fratellis might not have been holding a gun to my head but they were still pissing in the pool.
that can be very very good. making it more primal and visceral and stuff. not that im saying the fratelli's were this mind... i dont think theyre any dumber than any other music, and it certainly wouldnt matter if they were.
for instance, retard rock;
anyway, i appear to have a totally different opinion of music to some people here. if there is some music i dont enjoy, i dont care about it. that said, as soon as animal collective break up, i will splurge my collective hate jizz all over this site.
They are so bad they make me angry!
rock music has always been pretty dumb, they have certainly been out dumbed many times before and since
I'm sure they had their fans who enjoyed their music. Oh well.
They'll both be distraught.
Popularity is a sure judge of quality...
I used to work for a company that dealt with the promotion of these cunts and their shit music. Also, we did Air Traffic, One Night Only, Brinkmann, and a few others who had tons of money spent on them and are now longer not around.
Only Mr. Hudson and The Enemy to go...
Fratellis did actually do a decent cover of All Along The Watchtower, but it was really just a straightforward rip of Neil Young's version. And their own stuff was shite.
There. I said it.
Rarely listen to it now, but when it came out, I liked them quite a lot. Second album was dull, but the first one had some good pop songs on it!
BUT they sold over a million albums so bitterness is probably a very apt word in this thread
i thought this might get maybe 10. you have to hand it to them, that's an achievement in itself
...and I don't think.
that's good then.
i felt like a gringo...buka da da da
but I'm not pleased they've broken up, it can't be nice for the people that did like their music. Bands breaking up is never a good thing.
