Who's the worst sort of music fan?
robluvsnic & Loui_Tacceh
This is the music board - no place for wanton vulgarity.
second wave > first wave
and elitist pricks who get excited by owning something 'exclusive'.
but are just indifferent. Passion is a beautiful thing in any guise.
just a shame that people (and a cow) have suffered because of it. That's not so cool.
I get the impression there is a lot of indifference amongst people here, and they use cynicism as a way to feel better about this.
Not all of them but the 95% of them that wear Pretty Green, have hair like Liam Gallagher, drink shite lager and piss in cups before launching them into the air at gigs. They probably don't listen to anything other than Oasis, Kasabian, Stone Roses, the Beatles and the Jam. Maybe they might branch out and listen to the Verve or Paul Weller.
Especially if they had big sideys and won brum brum bikey races in France lol
... thank God I didn't as they seemed like the types of people who thought music began and ended with All The Small Things.
Cunts one and all.
Or New music to them?
makes it their life's mission to 'educate' you about them
and he replied 'i understand his tastes haven't progressed as far as mine have yet, but i really do hope for his own sake that they do'
Did the other one ever catch up in the end? It's hard knowing other people whose tastes have not progressed as much as your own. If music taste was on a Top Trump, I'd have 100. You'd think that'd be great, and if life was Top Trumps, it would be. But life isn't Top Trumps and instead it's incredibly lonely.
I wish everyone else would catch up :(
nar, my friend was the one that was being berated by someone with a superiority complex when it comes to TASTE
such personality trait ensures an INSTANT DISLIKE from me
like a lot of people who say that are wont to be
the people that tend to do this only care about albums that were well-recieved by a certain circle of critics (in that needy, seeking-validation-becase i'm-too-scared-to-have-contrasting-opinions way), and regard them as being the music people SHOULD like.
i'd rather prefer someone telling me i'm an idiot because i don't like some band that they're really passionate about and have idolised for years than telling me i'm some sort of out of touch freak for not caring about whatever tim hecker's just put out.
'real' music fans wouldnt do that, guys. they're all about the music.
oh man, i can't believe that! he is so good and so important. you should immediately get yourself listening to harmony in ultraviolet. what he has done for programmed music is...
I'm never usually one of THOSE pricks, but... I mean, what the fuck is wrong with them? IT'S BLOODY PRINCE!
1. Cannot accept it if a band changes their sound
2. Accept everything a band does, even if it is shit
3. Cannot accept that other people might not like the music they like
4. Think other people's music taste is rubbish just because it isn't to their own taste
5. Think their music taste defines them
the spoofer's remorse
Think I'll just be a spectator.
thought I'd saunter back in a few hours later all 'oh you guyyys :D' but now I simply feel hollow, antagonistic and spiteful - everything I set this thread up against. WOE
Then TBO posted
Foals fans to seem to be largely twats, unfortunately. (I'm not denying that I'm a twat myself, I'm just a different variety.)
down with the thing.
with the sickness
especially if you've been reading them for years and you read a good aggregate of reviews.
Far worse than the Oasis/mod pseud Gallagher heads.
guy at a house party 'djing' Bastille on Spotify
can't even do that live, let alone use serato
Ads blaring between songs.
STOP LISTNIN TO MA MUSIC (after a track by Labradford) LEVEL CROSSINS BRUV
sean isn't a music fan
And when you play them a song by Youthmovies or something say "Well, it doesn't do much." *RAGE*
We are the worst.
love - when what they really mean is:
I love hip hop ----Jazz-----drum and bass -------breaks ----------trip hop-------r&b
I love Mod music----60's rhythm and blues------northern soul-------the Jam-------
Basically they don't love all music. They love music that is part of the same family..
Drives me fucking crackers.
Where they suddenly go off the principled, innovative music they've been listening to up til that point and act like they're doing something really clever by liking whatever every fucker and their mum is into because they heard it on a mobile phone advert. Normally coincides with getting a girl/boyfriend.
I think they're saying that they're well into music and it's their biggest love.
and it will be my last
music of the future
and music of the past
the music of the present is total shite though
I just didn't write my post very well.
For instance, party I went to a while back. One of my mates friends was down for the weekend. I'd not met him before - really nice guy, so I'm not having a go at all. He had the full on Pretty Green ensemble - Liam Gallagher haircut, silk scarf, skin tight cords and chelsea boots.
We chatted quite a bit and I can't remember why but we got onto music. He said that music is his main love - I asked what sort of stuff he liked, and he said 'everything really'. When I asked for specifics, every example he gave was of the same ilk, regardless what time period they were from.
Same thing with loads of guys I know from back home. They've always been B-Boys, ever since we were at school. They sort of slap each other on the backs regularly for having such eclectic music tastes, but if you ask them what sort of stuff they like, the most diverse would be afro-beat.
Well aware that I'm making myself look a cunt here, but it just annoys me. I don't dislike them for this fact, just think that I've got a far wider range of music in my collection, and have a far more eclectic taste in music - but don't proclaim it to anyone (except on threads like these, indirectly).
Pretty conceited examples to be fair - I'm not expecting a load of this's from people.
Just a couple of instances that have happened to me that have annoyed me a tad - like I say, I like the people and a lot of them are friends, certainly wouldn't get into an argument about it with them.
That's one of the craziest posts I've ever seen if you are
Thats what I said and meant everyone.
ADMINS! I'M BEING BULLIED
because that's not how websites work
And by that I mean I love every single site on the entire internet
I don't think they make 220g vinyl for non-bellends
Y'know, the folk who rush to the front and stay there. Terrible sound, most bands look like shit, why bother? It's not really about 'the music' is it? It's about the iphone video and a dream of being fucked in the tour bus.
Not to say I don't like to be down near the front of a gig, where it's always acceptable to dance, but right at the barrier is about the most cramped place in the room. Silly beggars.
As I say, 'most bands look like shit'. Who cares if you can't see the whole stage? If you're moving/jumping/dancing/staring at your shoes does it really matter? I just don't understand why people would go for somewhere with a better view but poorer acoustics rather than the other way around.
THE SHOW'S OVER
the ones follow bands around the country to see every show on the tour and all that. Proper scary people.
particularly when commenting on Ed Sheeran or Jake Bugg vids on YouTube
now my 2 dead best friends, THEY had taste in music. Really close to mine. And I hate most everything.
Usually self-satisfied bores who feel superior to every other music fan because "all music is folk music, essentially". Bollocks. Can't stand progression and can be found sitting on deckchairs eating a picnic right down by the front of the main stage at Cambridge Folk Festival.
Usually come in the form of early-retired older couples whose kids have flown the nest. They would have renewed their marriage vows quite recently and will probably be looking at "doing up an old barn in the South of France".
Usually pleasant people but don't become friends with them as they will suck you down into their world of bland genteel mediocrity where you find yourself buying a new Saab or Volvo every year and your wife becoming obsessed with cushions.
conflating a few different types of people there. They sound like they deserve it though.
woah! The boards are really losing their touch
