That is all.
(The band, not, like, Colin.)
if arse and belly button count...
which is a track I really like.
they REALLY are shit - and not just your average shit either, more like the shit you do when you have had twelve pints of guiness on top of a stomach virus and over-cooked cabbage
Haven't heard them being called Editors for a while.
well I thought it was funny
is this going to be one of those things where i say "ah, they're not so bad, could be worse" and then someone replies with "YES THEY ARE! mediocrity is the worst thing of all" and then we all frown and think about whether we have achieved enough at the age of 22?
I liked Munich.
Am I now banned?
they're not that bad.
I like them. Though Im not sure after seeing that thing that was posted yesterday about how all sparks was copied.
once before they were famous in the back room of a pub, once at truck and another time because i was dragged by a friend.
all three were mildly entertaining evenings. they don't sound that bad if you try not to pay too much attention.
as being overtly shit like say hard-fi ... but theres nothing much good to say about them either
They remind me that the first Interpol album was really good.
That can't be a bad thing.
The other cd that came with their album? Cuttings its called. Some of the tracks on that are better than the actual album tracks.
seem them live and enjoyed it. There are A LOT worse bands to focus your hatred on.
...fucking hates Editors but I'm not too fond of the mediocre mid-song banter on the DIS Radio podcasts.
RIGHT THOSE WRONGS
BITE HOSE SONGS
It takes a special kind of talent to be able to emulate a style of music that was last innovative and exciting 25 years ago and update it so gloriously - simply by adding layer upon layer of delay.
In the world of MIDI, that sound is called Atmosphere.
I was nearly insulted by saying things like that...
Not only are Editors shit, but people who LIKE Editors have the class and intelligence of a spider's piss puddle and are all sexually inadequate.
but Joy division will always >>>>>>>>> editors
for saying Editors were shit !
So I suppose you're right about some of the people who like Editors.
and I quite like it.
umm. they have like two songs which are alright. The rest can leave, now.
"You got editors tickets then?"
I am yet to reply and will never buy them. Ever.
a particular band or artist is like saying you actively hate a particular food.
You dont go on rants about macaroni cheese, for example, (or maybe you do, I don't know) you just don't eat it.
Waste of effort. Be constructive and make better music yourself, if you can.
i actively hate mushrooms.
editors don't really impinge on my conciousness, but then i'm something of a hermit right now, so i choose what i hear.
They were easy to ignore.
Now, though, not so.
That damn awful cover of Feel Good Inc too, blugh...

...I don't understand the point of their existence either.
They're Interpol. Except Interpol are way better at being Interpol than Editors are. So what's the point of a carbon copy of a band (and I'd go so far as to say no band has ever sounded like another band so much as Editors sound like Interpol) that's not as good?
The answer presumably is there is no point.
To be honest they've hacked me off ever since the guy whose name I've forgotten but sings in the band was in the media criticising the JCB song. Not that especially like the JCB song; I just dislike bands that criticise other acts in print without realising or acknolwedging their own flaws.
Nothing special, but good, very MOR.
Is retarded. By that rational, James Blunt is a billion times more worthwhile than Germlin, and George Michael is a trillion times more worthwhile than 80's Matchbox B-Line Disaster. Idiot.
...Check my ratings. I give REM 10. They've literally sold millions more records than Editors so I don't really think my dislike can come down to them selling records.
And yes, 400, 000 own their album. And well done to them for that. But sellign 400, 000 copies doesn't necessarily mean you're any good. And it doesn't mean they're not an Interpol rip-off (albeit a more successful one).
To me a band has a legitimate reason to exist if
a) they're better than anyone else
b) they're doing something genuinely different.
There are far too many bands just adding to the slush pile of "alright" stuff that doesn't really offer anything new, interesting or especially good to the music world. And frankly Editors feature strongly in that slush pile.
And any number of records they sell won't change that.
how can you forget it? it's the simplest name ever!
...If he was called Horation van Zuren III I'd probably never have remembered it to forget!
They're boring !
But really, they are. And so cliched too. "All sparks will burn out"... just die why don't you?
I think I've got (one of) their album and as I recall it was watered down Interpol, though maybe not quite the blantant Interpol rip-off She Wants Revenge is (a band that really annoys me).
To the persistent "Iditers r shit" dilemma.
Don't listen to the album. Turn off the radio. Breathe in. Breathe out. Breathe in. Breathe out. Feels better, doesn't it?
are the only band to make me fall asleep when i saw them live... and before Parsefone says "well you shouldn;t have gone" my mates forced me to see them at leeds, and there wasn't much better on at the time.
Anyway I relocated halfway through to chill out in the dance tent.
I've seen them live as well, at Leicester Summer Sundae. They were alright. They don't inspire hatred, but they fail to inspire much else either.
Now lets go and drink some pear cider!
Are you still at Leicester then?
up to my eyeballs in work though, I'll go back home on Saturday.
apparently we finish a week before you do. :)
Do keep abreast of the happenings in Leicester, there were a couple of good things coming up in May but I'm danged if I can remember.
are playing the Sumo in what might become my official birthday thingy .
Volcano! are palying as well.
sometime in may that is.
iLiKeTrAiNs...hmm. Odd choice for a birthday party?
on May 13th with the 14th being the special day. I can't really do 2 nights in a row though with it being exam season.
I'm calling it the official tom_from_sparks birthday party even if no-one else will!
even as I slash my wrists.
to the tom_from_sparks cause, I like that.
Just remember to have a phone next to you to call an ambulance.
Dull, reheated joy division/interpol.But weren't DIS something to do with them...hmm
mike, you're so like, enlightened
