thats all I can say
you don't think the Violent Femmes are somehow GG Alin, musique concrete or LaBradford do you? They're college rock for FM radio for heaven's sake and are blander than weak tea on a wednesday.
And if I ever hear Blister in the Sun again I will not be responsible for my reactions.
I just don't arselick enough do i?
we've all got different tastes, innit?
i love the femmes, me, but i wouldn't pay for the rest of the kack just to hear 'kiss off' live again...
and that's what makes it very exciting to be alive. I just wish everyone accepted each others opinions sometimes -me included
Can we have a DiS Group Hug now please?
violent femmes suck, prol-e-o is right
That you don't like Violent Femmes doesn't surprise me. I can't make head nor tail of your music decisions half the time. I have to call you a cunt now. I doesn't mean I don't love you any more, or that I want a divorce, or anything like that, but the roasting you just gave Violent Femmes means I am contractually obliged to I'm afraid. Their songs are wonderful (in ways that I can't be bothered to go into because you'll only start talking about something completley unreleated and then expect me to understand). cunt
is the only way forward kevvers.
you mean the 'respect-others-taste-even-though-you-don't-agree-because-it's-all subjective-in-the-end' philosophy I've been following so far is THE WRONG ONE??!??
its just me bein Joe Reasonable AGAIN in a different thread
"lalalala la la la
Oh mah-mymymymymymy mum...
Don't shootshootshoot that thing at me..."
This is ace. Fucking perfect.
Have you heard the basslines?
but that album and only that album. don't listen to any others, they will only bring you sadness.
'...and ten, ten, ten, TEN FOR EVERYTHING EVERYTHING EVERYTHING EVERYTHING!'
Put it on a tiny tape machine at a house party in Manchester one time and everyone is the kitchen lovedlovedloved it and got all excited. It's just one of THOSE albums. That nobody normally complains about :-S
and they were great. Packed crowd of people having a brilliant time. The haters can carry on sneering at anyone good enough to appeal beyond one mile of their own house and a dozen of their mates.
their best track ever isn't even on that album. It's called Never Tell and is on the Hallowed Ground album. They have many many great tracks including Fat, Mother of a Girl, I Know It's True But I'm Sorry to Say, Nightmares, American Music, Nothing Worth Living For and a brilliant cover of Children Of The Revolution.
A lot of people think they are a one album band, but they are most surely not.
the violent femmes' debut album is the most perfect album ever. anybody who disagrees is a cunt.
the rest of their stuff, however...mmmm.
some good stuff in there.
not much though.
more than most bands are worth in an entire lifetime.
...and why shouldn't you, may I steer you to
femmes + shins + cribs = Kid Casanova
and if you do not like them
keep it to yourself,
and worry that you are wrong
because, oh yes, you are.
Or would be.
except mixed with loads of sub-standard guitar music.
