...and what are you going to do about it?
They're fun and make smile.
I like them toooo. In your face, world.
This makes three!
Aggressive Alan Whicker.
They've had a couple of good songs, a couple of bad ones. 2-2.
alan whicker. the man's a demi god.
his voice is like a cup of hot cocoa on an icy day. if i liked cocoa.
they write great pop tunes. although, being said, i've never worked up the guts to listen to the album. dunno why.
That they're better than Son of Dork. For sure.
did you see son of dork on popworld? simon kept taking the piss because they'd managed to make Pinner look like an american suburban town.
What's ACTUALLY worse, Pinner or Son of Dork.
Both are dull and predictable and seem to have a lot of crime around them.
pinner at least has a tube station, facilitating a quick escape.
The buses to Pinner go to 'Love Lane'.
It sounds so cosy. IT'S NOT - DON'T BE FOOLED.
i saw a bus going to "fish island" last night. i want to go there.
one of them used to be in that band Stamford Amp. remember them? no, of course not. they were the 'house' band on some Sat morning kids show on the Beeb i think.
like the backlash to the backlash against the Kaiser Chiefs?
it starts HERE.
And where else but DiS would be so ahead of the game?
DiS kind of defines 'ahead of the game' in this instance, seeing as it all started with them.
But yes, I like them too. Not all good popular music has to be brain surgery. It would be boring if it all was, or it all wasn't. I like a side order of Blink 182 with my Radiohead.
Now bugger off and start preparing yourself for the backlash against the backlash against the backlash, tentatively scheduled to hit at 3.41 this afternoon.
72 per cent?
I like them 25%. First three singles I could do without, but The Modern Way is a bazzingly top tune.
The Modern Way is ace - I always forget it's them, think 'ooh, I like this' then realise.
even know that tune, I'll have to check it out.
but I do like them, they make me leap and sing. I preferred it when the lead singer was fatter though.
they are really really good, partly because there are lots of people who *do* love them in the audience and go mental. Slicky basically said it all: 'they make me leap and sing'. I was enthused to dance in front of the TV when they showed a live performance. They are average on record though, listening to their album is more so that you know the songs for future live leaping / singing...
I dunno, I like two singles quite a lot: Modern Way and I Wish I Had Tourettes. They're a bit bland otherwise, though - I get bored trying to listen to the album.
So so far they are a single up on Britney (Toxic)in my book of likeable singles.
are singing I Predict A Riot on Radio 1.
How did that post with no body?
How can they possibly scan "I Predict A Riot on Radio 1" into the chorus? That's just stupid.
They're a very good pop band !
Congratulations. Have a biscuit.
