Are there any really good bands that do not use drugs or alcohol?
To be honest most bands don't fill out surveys about their alcohol or drug consumption so it's quite hard to tell. I'd find a band making a big deal out of the fact they don't use drugs or alcohol a bit silly in the same way as it is when bands make a big deal out of the fact they do use those things.
I'm not really clear why it would be important?
Although there are loads of shit ones too.
Some people like mainstream music, those people want to buy that music, HMV sell that music to them peoples.
all be it at higher price point
the Afrirampo and Anika albums, think there's a lot more since they started running FOPP as well. rise is still better though, the one in Cheltenham has a little witch house and chillwave EP section.
and i imagine all your other threads were about silly duhhstep 12"s that nobody replied to, so they don't count
good work, cappy.
There's probably a whole sub-category of post-rehab musicians
Frank Zappa was strongly against use of drugs, even though he drank coffe and smoked. certain members of his bands did drink alkyhol and use various other drugs though
it's been on my to-read pile for quite some time now, but I haven't got round to it. come to think of it, I have a few other books about him lying around I've never read (The Negative Dialectics of Poodle Play is one of em).
Already had a thread like that, it was pretty gay.
If they really do exist I haven't seen them.
bands who don't take drugs: fine, whatever
bands who used to take a lot of drugs, but are now clean: grotesque bellpieces
There's not too many bands I can think of now who do it but I can remember in the mid-90s when every other band seemed well-chuffed with their cannabis or LSD-inspired psychedelia that sounded pretty much identical to every other band who'd written psychedelia on the same fucking drug.
nice one Klaxons
What, was the guy who had a drug freakout at Primavera and just got busted by the cops in Germany TOO OBVIOUS for the joke?
I can barely even remember who he is
doesn't drink alcohol, caffeine, smoke, or take drugs. I see this as reasonable justification to do all of these things.
buffalo 66 is one of the greatest films of the 90s
I even enjoyed The Brown Bunny. The guy is a prime bellm though.
But they broke up ;_;
