am I in for a treat?
But this can only end in tears. The last time I went to watch my workmate's band, they turned out to be four balding guys on stools, all aged mid-late 30's/40's, playing acoustic covers of Ocean Colour Scene and Oasis songs.
It hurt my face. There's only so long I can fake smile for. And as a gig review 'you looked taller on those stools' isn't what a band want to hear, apparently...
seeing someone's boyfriend's band is never a good thing, they always tend to be rubbish!
Acoustic OCS and Oasis sounds like torture, why on earth would anyone want to do that..
We didn't hang around for an answer.
(bands being an unsuitable word?), and I can't work out why they'd want to play nothing but covers? Surely that must be the dullest thing ever as a musician? I don't understand some people.
It's kind of like singing along to a track. And you know when you've 'achieved' it.
Also, it can be worth a fair bit of money if you're a really good covers band.
but can someone please listen to this band for me?
forewarned is forearmed and that....
yelping vocals. Sound like the rapture mixed with british indie.
They sound like your standard indie-rock-with-disco-beats band doing their take of Ugly Kid Joe :D
it sure ain't purty.
Funnily enough Ugly Kid Joe cropped up in a conversation in work, I'd forgotten all about 'Cats Cradle'. :-s
i became worred as soon as I heard that they wouldn't list their influences. any band who believe themselves so spectacularly original that they can't list influences are invariably utterly derivative and dull.
i'm actually only going cos there's a really good band called Gindrinker playing first. it's a lucky coincidence that this band^ is on cos I kept saying I'd go and see them but didn't really want to.
That should make up for it.
I'm sure you can find an excuse to leave early - death of a relative/cat/favourite world leader or something.
you're in for a bland evening but not a dreadful one.
Is just wrong.
but I can't look at myspace in work so i can't tell.
Who thought that that was a good idea? I bet it was the art director that did the Millie Jackson album.
of the three of them standing at urinals looking over their shoulders at the camera.
in a non-grotty loo, looking over their shoulder's at the camera like they all think they're fucking Huey from the Fun Lovin' Criminals.
aren't they? I wish I could see myspace...
i'm getting my home broadband back tonight. then I won't have to keep going out and things.
"To headline our second night we were lucky enough to give you C*rd*ff 's finest The H**ds, a band that know how to make sure you have a good time. Working their way through a set that was full of catchy guitar pop, in a similar way to Ash, Oasis, The Buzzcocks and of course The Sex Pistols. The H**ds sounded even better live than they do on record, with a tight, complete sound which will ensure the band have a long and successful career in the music industry."
or is that 'h*pp*ly *v*r *ft*r'?
