Should I consult the doctor?
Why does loving an undeniable pop hook equate to guilt?
i've just added their album to my mp3 player!
i like the new lostprophets album
bad bad man :P
it's just a shame that the lyrics are utter, utter shit
I like the Automatic - or is that pushing my luck a bit?
nope. just because of that 'monster' song.
and the boy can really sing. and there's something about their love songs i simply can't resist. yep, i like them.
You with the Kooks, Mr Diver with Keane - why is it that people heavily involved with DiS are helping to perpetuate the myth that you have to ask if it's OK to like something or not? Puff your chest out, be bold! :)
I STUCK IT TO THE MAN!!
"oh no, i like something which is a) disliked by a large amount of people and b) considered as mainstream. WHAT SHALL I DO>??!??!?"
this is what you should do: listen to songs that you like. do not obscure your passions for the sake of looking cool.
and certainly don't whine on messageboards about how you like something that's doing well with 'the nme crowd'.
I've basically been saying that for the past million years! BARGH.s
But the Kooks are awful !!!
on this thread are scaring me.
i find them especially annoying as i can't seem to escape them, they seem to be everywhere.
it's because as a doorway or gateway band, y'know those first bands that 'get you' that i'm shocked they're actually not rubbish and that the songs have gone from nigglingly addictive and being everywhere to me feeling like i wanna listen to their album. havent got as far as buying the album tho and i know i'll end up buying something else instead.
just dispiritingly average.
I think they're nicely good.
but write good pop songs. I just wish he wrote better lyrics and didn't sing in a silly voice.
stuck in my head now :(
i've lost track
But their new one is annoyingly catchy....
i must have heard it (involuntarily) about 50 times.
I don't listen to the radio.
on channel 4. Or any channel for that matter...
in shops, on tv, in bars, in clubs... maybe 50 was an exageration but it's quite a few.
well i'm underage.
my housemate has just started playing it...
I've only heard one Kooks song, it sounded like Cast
are sound pretty good to these ears. They're really catchy and manage to be pleasent dispite his obvious lack of vocal talent. Bloody awful live from what I heard on the radio though.
Much like Keane!
whos up for a backlash against the backlash of the backlash?
for both keane and kooks.
"drowned in sound in crisis"
I was going to post this! It's not that I 'like' them per se, but I've found myself singing along to TWO of their songs in recent weeks
I admire your bravery*
*not THE Bravery, you understand
me, only the other day, how much you adore "An Honest Mistake" by The Bravery :oP
You scorpion woman!
it was good.
i think it had speedboats in the video?
i think it was called 'unconditional'.
THAT was a tune.
sean is ready to sell DiS to bob geldof now...
