because British accents are lame and irritating. End of.
(excluding David Gedge)
that certain British singing accents sound fucking horrible. Mind you, so do some American ones.
I'm looking at you, Molko.
who is fired. SO THERE
name a band with a geordie accent for 2 points
The difference being that Leatherface were and indeed still are fucking great.
Kenickie were shit.
But, I remember them from the time, must have seen them about 5 times supporting other bands and they were DIRE. Nobody thought anything of them at the time, I find it bizarre that various DiS types who weren't around to witness any of it seem to regard them as some sort of British answer to Sleater-Kinney!
PJ & Duncan
How could I forget Venom!!!
Hence the song 'Geordie in Wonderland'
Forward Russia are an exception to this rule
the vocals are an instrument right. OK, so is the guitar. You wouldn't plug your guitar into a stomp pedal with a really shit effect for the whole song would you? So why put your voice into that horrible talking accent but singing?
and DiS will probably come all over their face like they did with JoFo and his american accent
