Like "princes of ladrock" is something to be proud of.
"Razorlight: We crash their secret party."
than dadrock ?
They even pick on Test Icicles.. and what they broke up like 7 years ago?
i'd like them to say something about Prince, or 50 Cent:
"i really respect their work, as an artist"
Because I could get angry with that...
To be fair though, that interview could have been scripted before it even went to press. 'Our new album is top! Mega! We're from the North, except it's not the real North it's Leicester! We hate this band/that band/everyone else apart from Oasis! Have we told you that Liam is our mate!'
Sometimes, artists I don't really like can give good interviews. Kasabian are not one of those artistes.
Prince is untouchable due to his back catalogue and his prolonged influence, where as 50 Cent has "the guns", and popularity of about 45million in America.
Thus, an attack on either of them could be pretty damaging to their carerr, e.g. their attempt at an american tour, so it would be interesting to see them slag him off.
which they won't do.
their comments about test iciicles are gay anyway.
Single of the week is Metric, who aren't really that well known, let's be honest. Second is Tapes N Tapes with their first British single release.
Live reviews of some unknown (in England, anyway) Irish festival and bands.
The New Bands section mentions hella lot of bands that I've never heard of.
too famous imho
Hasn't Bat For Lashes just signed to an offshoot of Sony?
That kind of 'unknown' isn't what I was talking about.
released the 7" digitally via Drowned in Sound digital singles club.
.....makes really nice music.
kasabian are shit, but Bat for Lashes are a little bit style over substance...
She has terrific ideas, and a great stage show, but I find the songwriting a little...lacking
which is an independent run by Chrysalis publishing which hasn't been part of emi for ages.
they also have Sia and Feeder if memory serves.
where The Kooks proclaimed "We're what this country really needs."
When did they change from a magazine that promoted new music, to one that sells shedloads? Actually don't answer that....
every week from 1993-1998. I stopped simply because there was nothing in it that interested me.
Recently, over the last year or so, I've started buying it again, and it's getting better. Slowly. But it is getting better. It gets a lot of unnecessary shit, in my opinion. It's in a position where's it's damned whatever it does.
Also, that Def Leppard review from a couple of weeks ago was funny.
and therein lies the problem.
The shit they are pushing now wont satisfy peoples indie tastbuds for much longer, the scene will officially become 'stale' and we'll see the much needed rebirth of the boy band.
at least those utter twats will be out of a job.
Their review of odessey and oracle also made me choke on my cornflakes. Sounds like Sgt Peppers does it?
Only if you judge those albums both on the fact they have vaguely psychedelic artwork...
ha ha ha ha...yeah, that does sound a bit ridiculous...
what I meant is that itd be nice to see something about proper grass roots independant stuff, rather than independant records released to lend an air of indie cool to a band that has already got a publisher etc
I bought the NME yesterday, and was despairing at how much major label stuff is in there, and how there's barely a hint of tiny label obscurities...
I'm sure there used to be more coverage of seven inches with photocopied sleeves and so on.
