"i think they were scared, scared that we were too funky for them"
horrible horrible bands?
to decide who goes on and who doesn't, how bad must the bands be who are deemed not suitable?
then again I do rejoice in failure
Despite letting some absolute howlers through, most record labels know how to keep the worst of the worst out.
It was on in the background, and the music was just sub-The Enemy bullshit.
And The Enemy are already sub-everything else anyway. But what do I know, I like songs about castles...
The amazing thing about it is that it's just like a real battle of the bands from some regional hellhole where they've HEARD good bands but don't quite understand how to be one.
The thing that makes me laugh most is the total lack of rock 'cool' any of them exhibit. I'm not asking for any out of place posturing, but a quartet of beaming 19 year old girls...it just looks lame
She was an absolute stunner.
Only fame seekers. Talentless bands who can persuade enough music-hating idiots to come to the early rounds of the competition and get them through to the later stages.
taking part in this show see 'Definitely Maybe' as some sort of sonic Year Zero.
Also, have they all got Topman store cards or something?
by how many of the bands (the majority of which are awful) they put through...surely they have to wittle it down at some point?
Finding all these sub-Libertines bollocks bands who all are "we'll-do-anything-to-make-us-famous-for-about-a-year" and will never be heard of again. Its basically XFactor for pub rock bands. Fortunatly the genuinely really shite bands dont go through (so at least we dont have to put up with some really bad funk rock band being the next big thing).
Having said that, there was actually a really good band playing (I think they were called Hijack Oscar or something)
the best bits about this show are..
a) mutya bueno type people that just say yes to anything so they dont look like a bitch on tv..and alex james..who im sure is on a piss take 90% of the time
b) bands from granthamlittlestown that are probably married to their cousin but actually really good..
c)bands that get all pissed off because they rejected..because theyre too funky for earth.."Youd be really good at a bahmitzfa (spelling urgh)" was a particular highlight!
Is anyone else looking forward to a return to a time when the 'general public' only appeared on Crimewatch and Blind Date?!
were so hilarious on this.
And someone else wanted to beat up the judges.
It's a pretty genius show even though at the same time it's awful.
