What music did you like when you were my age? I want to compare and contrast, as it could be interesting.
anything remotely 'Britpop'
These Animal Men
which I used to buy purely because of the label without having heard them)
the Postal Service on Sub Pop?
i liked blur, oasis and pulp and beck and dj shadow
not fifteen today, I just couldnt think of a good title.
have some birthday cake
are 13 candles on that cake.
Way to ruin my most important birthday of my entire life.
clash, gang of four, the specials, mission of burma, sham 69... nirvana, the pixies! god, i was so cool!
The Divine Comedy
The Beatles (especially the Blue album thingy)
General 60s and 70s cheese
and Musicals (Cabaret and Chicago).
My favourite colours were Red and Black.
My lucky number was 2.
it was 1992 and I would be just going into high school... it was pre-metal phase, and the metal phase was pre-indie... so things like de la soul, early blur, happy mondays, now compilations, whatever was in the top 20... Michael Jackson... Guns N Roses...
is 15 not a bit late for going to high school?
I can't really remember what age I was when I went to high school actually. It's back in the misty dawn of time. I'm old these days, y'know.
high school doesn't really mean anything in the UK, (unless brainlove is talking about going to school in the US..) so it depends on which system you're under - if you go to secondary school you start at 11, if you go to upper school you start at 14.
went to 'High School' as well. It's a West Midlands thang.
can't believe you're only a year older than me. I always thought you were a uni student.
I thought you'd been 15 for ages
I was into:
Jimmy Eat World
Red Hot Chili Peppers
clutch (i think :S)
kiss (yes kiss!)
red hot chili peppers
queens of the stone age
at the drive-in
At The Drive-In
not much different to now
Wings, then The Damned, Sex Pistols and Stranglers
it was 1996-1997 ish though, so:
and every other Britpop type thing you can imagine, really!
I had a Jamaican child minder when I was younger so I listened to lots and lots of Reggae, hence britpop sort of passed me by.
By 15 I reckon i'd got into hardcore, stampin ground and silly stuff like that.
..it was along, long time ago.
cos of starting to go and see bands:
at the drive-in
and cos of radio/big brother etc:
happy days :)
and it was only 5 years ago. I think I liked Radiohead...I remember recommending the Super Furries to someone, so I suppose I was just as excellent as I've always been.
the requisite britpop bands (absolutelt bummed oasis) and also some shameful commercial hiphop see: bad boy records/cam'ron (how else was i going to get in with the laydeez?). :(
i also really REALLY got into nirvana during my GCSEs, to the point where if i lesten to nevermind now, i'm instantly transported to my little bedroom, where i would play crash team racing and listen to nirvana instead of revise.
i never wore one of those ghastly black hoodies w/ yellow nirvana smiley face though. far too cool for that.
leafed through some old stuff ('spring cleaning', apparently) and I've found my Top 100 Singles of 1994, 95, 96, 97 and 98. All hand typed on a typewriter. There's some great stuff on those lists :)
God, I was a sad child.
what were you into, Elvis?
The internet was but a dream, and we didn't have a computer at home - not until I left for Uni in '98. I also liked the romanticism of sitting at my desk, looking out of the window at the street below, and the click-click of the typewriter and changing the sheet of paper.
to think of my top100 singles of any year...
I was a sad child. I may type them up and post them here for my landmark post. Because I was not only a sad child, but I am a sad adult as well.
the DiS sad club !!!
will you be sixteen?
i think !
you gallic fool.
The Verve <---------still am
I wasn't interested in music at all actually. I was a videogame nerd, I only bought my first album when I was 16.
i liked interpol
all new york bands. i dont think us brits have come up with anything to match any of those albums when they first came on the scene.
name some british bands that have come out since the strokes that have dont the whole post punky, spiky guitars, dancey beats better than any of those bands. thats right u cant.
and they piss all over The Strokes.
You never said matched these bands in a tightly defined sub-genre.
I'd say that Bloc Party and Editors are better than the Rapture or Walkmen, but I'm not a huge fan of any.
Better british bands, concurrent with those, and off the top of my head:
Hope of the States
I get your point though, Strokes and Interpol were both exceptional debuts.
those two are tied as my favourite albums ever. both came out when i was develpoing a real passion for music.
Boom Boom Satellites
Fun Lovin Criminals
oh and Sleeper...loved Sleeper
Nightmares on Wax
Send No Flowers
i was listening to
Sisters of Mercy,
Anti Nowhere league
to simple minds too..
Why did you have to make me remember that...
I listened to
I won't talk to you anymore...
other...shameful things... >_<
I discovered Jeff Buckley. On my 16th I discovered Radiohead. I kid you not. I wonder what my 17th will bring.....
Let me know when it is and i will so mixtape your ass with pop goodnes...
sept 12th. quite a while to go but hey, it gives me time to enjoy this years discoveries
but so much has changed since then; some of the bands I still like though
Jack Off Jill
Yeah Yeah Yeahs
Hot Hot Heat
Red Hot Chili Peppers
hmm, now I think about it I probably wasn't as into music as much as I thought I was. I only owned about 12 CDs or something! Becoming 16 was like my turning point.
back when it began in the early 90s.
I liked Blur, Soundgarden, Dinosaur Jr, Metallica, Rage Against The Machine, Sonic Youth, Public Enemy, The Goats, Hendrix, Zeppelin, Disposable Heroes of Hiphoprisy, Living Colour, Fugazi, RHCP, NWA, PWEI, Carter USM....
Hmmm. Not a lot's changed really. I don't listen to Kingmaker so much though
But EVERYONE loves Godflesh, don't they?
that's to the warn...
cos that will bascially be my 15 yr old playlist....except i've never heard of the goats...
Godflesh of course..plus skinny puppy, ministry, kmfdm...
oh...anyone remember misery loves company.
To be honest the majority of the 'good' music demonstrated in my 15 year old tastes are from my brother's record collection (especially pixies, fishbone, living colour, bad brains and..err lou reed newtwork!.
while most of the stuff i 'discovered' from about 11 years old onwards was bascially grunge or crap industrial that i don't really listen to anymore.
situations i will claim that i was into Can since I was a foetus.
So I guess I was into all those bands a year before you.
I was listening to 'times up' today. Some of it's dated terribly, some of it still rocks hard.
dan reed network not lou reed network..now imagine lou going lovers rock...oh he has
but I think it was around then that I liked:
Anything indie schmindie that was on a fierce panda or snakebite city compilation
anything that described how difficult getting a girl to sleep with you
loads of Ride, and then i got really into old shoegazing bands, and erm...Shed Seven
is an interesting read. Its weird how you all liked Oasis, but now people hate them. As understandable as the transition is, its strange how far your tastes change as you get older. I wonder what I'll be into when I'm in my 20's...
But what I've gathered from this is that a lot of you are filthy hypocrites. Obviously, the Uber-Cool ones won't post on this thread and risk their 'cred'. But the amount of shit I've got in the past for liking The Vines, Razorlight and Coldplay etc. isn't really appropriate. Almost everyone loved the most popular rock n roll bands that were around at the time, when they were my age.
To a lot of DiS people's silly 'standards', my current tastes make their old ones look silly.
But yes. Very interesting.
an hypocrite ?
DiS suggests that maybe your musical tastes are more mature for your age, and that's why people make fun of the crap bands you like. I suppose everyone wants you to conform to the whole indie obcurity thing.
This was ages ago. A long while before I'd even heard of Trail of Dead.
am i an hypocrite ?
now i'm sad !
ten years ago oasis were doing something exciting. now they're not. you'll find a lot of people on here still rate their early output, it's just that now they're blaaaaaand.
Its because you dismiss good music in favour of shit. You have this annoying arrogant attitude where you talk with the authority of a 20 year old but have the musical knowledge of a 10 year old.
I was pretty much into the same stuff as I like now when I was 15. Beatles, Blur, Radiohead, Bowie, Dylan.
NOTHING ELSE MATTERED
Daniel on this one too. I was a massive Manic's fan when I was 15.
I was also loving:
3 Colours Red
Loads of Britpop stuff
Super Furry Animals
in 2001 i was WELL into anything produced by DJ Premier, Pete Rock, The Beatnuts, The Alchemist and MF Doom.
And i still am to a fairly large extent...
don't listen to nearly as much hiphop as i used to though.
The Wedding Present
Siouxsie and the banshees
french punk bands that are better left unsaid...
( key lyrics : "salope, je te baiserai, salope, je t'enculerai...")
Surely you weren't even able back then to set up a reminder in your calendar?
