Wrightylew is in love with The Libertine. Is the rest of his stuff similar?
Libertine is on Wind In The Wires
hmmm, i admit it does stand out from the other tracks on the album. Not sure about your comparison though. I may need to play ALL his stuff RIGHT NOW to check.
get Lycanthropy. Yay!
But Wind In The Wires is also amazing.
I think all the songs on WITW are quite like The Libertine. Teignmouth is really similar.
Lycanthropy-Weird, poppy and awesome
WITW-moody and dark is the best way i can put it.
I'd start at the start though, get Lyncathnropy :D
but then, your taste is fucking suspect to say the least.
'You have crap taste' says nerd.
'Oh' says me.
i'm not saying your taste is crap, i'm saying it's narrow.
with the time you spend on here i'm surprised you still like shite like the Vines when they clearly take so much from so many better artists.
do you even like music? you don't seem to like anything that doesn't have some kind of pop hook and i'm still unaware of you liking any band that's vaguely obscure despite any amount of prompting.
That was a little hostile!
i can put up with so much, but such blatant anti-intellectualism, even in this most basic form, is so fucking irritating. i've had it all my life and i don't see why i should put up with it.
he's just asked for advice?
it's more a reaction to his absolute conservatism.
this question smacks of "is it all this straightforward?" really. SO FUCKING WHAT?
i don't see why people can't investigate by themselves, it;s hardly difficult with such an obvious artist.
isn't that what this MUSIC forum is for!??!?!
JESUS FUCKING CHRIST!!
Why are you being so fucking Arogant?
was just creating discussion
I'm not trying to defend anybody here, least of all wrightys music taste. But he was trying to find out more information regarding PWolf. He seemed honest in his question and i took it as being honest. Now if this is a continuation of a row from a diff thread then fair enough. However, if not you were the one throwing the first totally unprovoked insults. Wrighty responded in kind.
I really hate the argument 'You like blah blah, so how can you know anything about blah blah' it's a silly and fucking childish row.
If you have a fucking problem with wrighty then keep it to PM. I learnt that lesson a long time ago.
i have, on countless occasions, tried to show avenues of discovery - ie. http://hype.non-standard.net/
it usually goes ignored.
my reaction to this thread is largely borne out of persistent frustration: look: http://hype.non-standard.net/search/patrick%20wolf/1/
it's so difficult, isn't it?
why ask for other people's opinions on a matter? especially when wrighty constantly complains about this board's general taste? for fuck's sake.
Do you mean just Wrighty, or the world in general?
i just mean on a matter like this where it's so easy to find the answer out if you have the internet.
he has a website and everything, is it really so hard? he doesn't respect anyone on here, so why ask the question?
if you want to find out about a band, just type their name into google. However I've done the same as Wrightylew in the past, mainly because I want the opinions of people on this forum. Surely this is the whole point of this place. To discuss music.
changing, he's growing older, spending more time on here, learning more and more music.
This site is a great place to hear about ALL KINDS of music. But we ALL have different tastes. Wrighty posted an honest question on a Music forum were the majority of users like PWolf. I think, and it would seem other concur that wrighty did ok.
I suggest your actions tonight were out of character. He didn't deserve that. You can't beat someone up for not having the same taste in music as you.
I really can't see what those links are supposed to prove. So you can go and listen to his tracks online? Big deal. wrighty came to US and asked US. You gave him a torrent of abuse.
"DiS doesn't like this" etc?
if he doesn't respect our opinion, why ask for it?
i'm fed up with negativity towards music.
two wrongs don't make a right.
Why are you afraid to admit you were hasty and totally OTT*
*Get your camera folk, I'm defending wright!!! ME, MARCOFELLA!!!
and i can't be bothered anymore.
neither can i.
is a pretty accessible track. Check out the track Tristan. It is similar. I don't think you would like his other stuff.
But I think Lycanthropy definitely deserves at least a try, it's his best album in my opinion. It's more electronic-y than Wind in the Wires, but I think the songs are better.
But wrighty would probably like wind in the wires more? It's a great album. The last 4 tracks are magnificent.
and answer th original question: not really.
Seriously though, check out Lycanthropy. It'll be fairly cheap, or you can hear stuff over t'internet (check out i-deserve's link). It is, seriously, one of the greatest albums I've ever heard. No bull.
Are you calling my perfectly weighted sermons shit?!
categorising all of the 'banter' as shit, not your sermons in particular.
With really big feet.
(stop making me blush)
I am the king of public transport. I even resisted McDonalds. It's a small victory, but I feel pride nevertheless. And I'll stop making you blush when you stop being hot.
but pinkstars still managed to tread on them. And she is hot.
(thank you though)
And I hope your foot is still alive bobbytom, sorry. That was easily the most embarrassing that's happened to me all week.
how can you criticise someone else for being aggressive unprovoked then on the same thread react to something completely harmless in that way? Do I not have a right to agree with someone who disagrees with you?
Seriously, you come accross as being just a little bit stupid sometimes marco.
I can just laugh at you, you pathetic fanny.
"I hate you wrighty. I don't care. Go away."
Internet grudges = LOL. Grow up.
Sorry, who are you attributing this quote to?
In a quote. I thought you'd got over all this stuff about hating me and hating my threads and hating my music taste.
Didn't you decide to keep away, or could you just not resist?
I don't hate you or your threads. The patrick wolf thing wasn't anything personal towards you I just don't care whether you buy it or not. I hope my apathy didn't hurt your feelings.
And I agree wholeheartedly with everything i-deserve said. I don't understand why you would want to come on here telling everyone they're cliquey geeks who only listen to obscure electronic music whilst maintaining that the vines and feeder are good bands and then ask for everyone's advice on music. It's silly and immature.
You're so wide of the mark sometimes.
i-deserve-to-be-in-your-band speaks much truth.
RE the thread topic: he's great. I like Lycanthropy lots so buy that. Or don't. I don't really care.
