Nasty me, big fat spammer me!
My title was hardly serioussss was it?!
I'm not really a fan to be honest. I always think, with bands like this, why not listen to the band that they've ripped off, rather than them.
Or comment on it, just dropped a sarcastic headline with a link http://shinyshinynew.com/2013/01/06/haim-band-profile/
That link in the OP kinda (musically at least) reminds me of a more pop punk Los Campesinos!
OMG, musicians' first attempt wasn't great, shocker!
I dunno how old girls are now, maybe 19, and guess what? Tis catchy-as-fuck great.
Go pick on Lana Del Rey or something...cos you're embarrassing yourself.
But to provide further evidence: my personal lord and saviour put out near-shit for several years before Space Oddity.
Art is as much about talent as it is about craft. It takes a minute or two or three years to learn what the hell you're doing.
Haim are clearly on the right path.
Loads of early Bowie stuff is great.
Some of my favourite Bowie stuff is pre-Space Oddity.
Karma Man, In the Heat of the morning, let me sleep beside you, Little boy blue.
So there :)
Surely it's better to be catchy, fun and silly than forgettably MOR?
Sadly my sarcastic headline didn't translate....
Not I, but everyone else!
