I like how he clarifies the quote was "half in jest". So half deadly serious, then?
"Why is nobody brave enough to make a great album? A record that can define a time? That can say what we're all thinking? Seriously?"
i love the idea that people doing underground music are only doing that because they don't have the FUCKIN' GUTS to make generic lad rock anthems.
Enemy-esque generic rock albums aren't the answer either obviously but I don't think it's the cure he's misdiagnosed rather than the problem.
reminds me of some insufferable idiots' response to "my tram experience"
who had a bigger impact on the world - the happy mondays or fuck butons?
probably Happy Mondays
Having a swear word in your band name is the ultimate English middle-class act of pathetic rebellion.
So. Just like last time.
But I doubt he has that level of wit
...is their name meant to be a play on "the nme"?
Because if it is, then they definitely deserve a good punching (in a festive sort of a way of course)...
It's not a bad name for that sort of band to be fair.
that it confirms that this band are somehow still together. How? I really thought they'd finally pissed off...
then someone showed me a story in music week saying cooking vinyl had scored a coup by signing them for their next album :/
Be the best since the Kayas.
With their first scenester/cartoon goth album. The other two seem well liked by most.
he doesnt speak for me.
You BLOODY FASCISTS
was back at House of Fraser Leamington Spa...used to work with him, he was a proper emo, couldn't believe it when he turned up in this lad rock outfit
On a punk revival weekender alongside Barnyard Masturbator.
A different band called the enemy playing. Old punk band from coventry.
Didn't they do really well with their second album??
people who don't see that bands like The Smiths and The Clash won't and probably shouldn't exist again are funny. New standards are being set all the time in (generic term alert) the more 'electronic'-y fields.
