yay or nay?
playing near me soon and I know nothing about them, but should I be persuaded, I might go...
At Stay Beautiful's clubnight. I'm not really a novelty, fun band kind of person, so I'd say save your money for something worthwhile. Unless you love choreographed dancing polka dots.
the prospect of a bargain bin Chalets excite you?
i see where this is going...
well, I'm trying to save money anyway
There are some fans on here. I've been grilled before...
Seriously, to a woman of good taste to another, DON'T GO! DON'T GO!
not amazing, but it's worth going!
its just good pop music, and there's a certain time-that-probably-never-existed charm in their live sets. I'd say check it out.
CHARM?! Bollocks, I was anything but charmed when I saw them.
I have read a few live reviews of them that said they seemed a bit 'disinterested' and aloof. Maybe i just saw them on a good night. But i'd still say take a chance on seeing them.
Really gets on my tits.
support ALL new music/bands, for the same reason you can't support ALL established music/bands. Just because it's new doesn't mean it necessarily should be supported.
Parsefone. Some of the new British bands emerging are some of the most dire crap I've ever heard. In my opinion, British music's going down the toilet for a few moments in 2006.
outta interest, like...
There's the new "Ironic Cultural Referencing" bands that are gonna be pushed like nothing by record labels after the Arctic Monkeys' success. Bands like Milburn, Bromheads Jacket, Larrikin Love etc.
Then there's just this influx of this shite art rock with all it's jangly guitars like Kubichek, The Long Blondes.
There's no originality that's all. I want a bloody Pixies! : D
were absolute shite.
That is all.
are one of those bands that panic refers too. utter crap when i saw them live, there are lots of energetic live and fresh bands about but it doesn't mean all of them are.
i dont mind the pipettes (at least when i saw them supporting the go! team they were ok)
Maximo Park, I think I'm alone when articulating my utter disgust for them.
I am a member that has similar music taste to you. As the statistics show.
We need to make this club official somehow.
I can bake cakes.
As long as your eyebrows don't rattle around like a rollercoaster. Bloody Maximo Park.
Is this like a proper uprising or just a small resistance?
I'll do t-shirts for a small resistance movement but I'm not sure i've got enough for a proper gang. If there is more than say 6, the rest will have to go skins and just paint some rude graffiti on their chests. I'm thinking along the lines of ' Cock, Piss, Maximo Park' or something.
I love a club.
I'm so deadly serious about this I've boycotted all parks called Maximo.
yes i do !
WE HAVE OFFICIALLY GONE INTERNATIONAL!!
Maximo Park Hater Lurkers!
deserves a thread of its own.
as you lot get on your knees infront of me. Then we can proceed in breaking of the bread.
*gets on knees, waits patiently*
It's about time we came out.
Brave step. I'll leave it to you o' wise leader...
Awful, soulless, joyless, contrived drivel. They so desperately want to be 'fun pop' and technically they have all the right elements to be that, but it's totally missing something. It's trying too hard.
If it is a cheap night out, you might as well go. I wouldn't pay more than a fiver for them, though.
but neither of them is as good as thew chalets.
I'd rate the pipettes fairly well though, saw them supporting go team and they were quite fun.
but if it's not too expensive, go !
It might be fun !
some people, my nickname is Pipette.
heard anything by them but their biog is the most pretentious thing i've ever attempted to read.
"LET US write the histories of pop music (the plural has a certain importance). A history at once oral/aural
but not linear or progressive. A history that snakes and twists and turns back on itself, a history of ruptures
and wrong-turnings. But let us not start with The Beatles."
come on. that's the first fucking paragraph!
it's not very funny and it goes on for 2 pages.
since then i heard their christmas cover and think it's boring.
i refuse to debate with someone who doesn't give the fall 10/10.
