what a dickhead
would enter what is essentially: Battle of the Bands. He was probably trying to help them escape with a shred of dignity
one is truly seeking DIGNITY
i'm not into insulting people on the internet, but what an utter utter bellend.
I read that thread too late to really follow what was going on.
going on which band got the most likes. CG and Cementimental entered their noise band. hilarity ensued. their band was miles in the lead, then Shed 7 deleted them.
The whole thing was just for wacky 'THIS'LL BE FUNNY' larks, in spite of the protestations of those involved.
Shit gag reaches a fair conclusion = the internet wins.
...as if it's been a big industry secret that has gone undetected for years... UNTIL NOW.
If it was a gag - it was a shit one; if it was to make a point - it was a shit one.
If you did - fair play.
you're part of the butt of the 'joke'
Even CG isn't really seriously serious.
if you knew very well what was going on? You deceitful thising bastard.
why did he this your post when he probably knew what happened before it even happened?
Also because apart from Rick Witter I've never bothered to learn the names of any member of Shed Seven, you Britpop-loving bastard.
And besides, I couldn't give a toss.
Haven't an opinion on something isn't directly proportional to caring about something.
I quite like Shed Seven, as it goes. Fair play to 'em.
they're usually trying to convince themselves as much as anyone else.
Not that i care or anything.
As a fan of Shed Seven/Oasis, do you pretend to like Slayer/Mastodon?
It was kind of shit but okay.
He was at Uni. Shed Seven were playing at his SU. His mum posted the 12" to him. It snapped in half. He phoned her up crying. Shed Seven walked in whilst was crying on the phone to his mum. He then gave Rick Witter a blow job to cheer himself up/get them to sign it for him.
cheer one up?
you guys were all pretty horrible (compared for insance to noise scene cohorts who were relatively tactful) and it's pretty much your fault we got deleted rather than winning and, as we were fully prepared to do if neccessary, discussing it with them politely and agreeing to not play if it seemed too unreasonable.
what he is saying is that you lot came across as really try hard sneering bellends who went over the top by trolling a very easy target in the most smug way imaginable. A bunch of 20-30 somethings acting like self satisfied teenagers.
Basically equivalent of this http://drownedinsound.com/community/boards/social/4273496
But I think it's a bit 'selective' to act like it's any surprise that happened given CG comes on here and trolls the fuck out of people all day long. A little of the 'boy who cried wolf' and also a little 'payback' (Mel Gibson reference for manbearpig, there).
All in all, though, I know no one really cares a great deal about this so it's okay.
Who's Paul Banks?
what a P(ussy)D(icking)A(rse)
Does he? Which branch?
I'm just disappointed.
You may like the band but lets not kid ourselves, you just wanted to troll their gig. You would be a terrible support act but seemingly all that would matter is you'd have some shabs and bants at their expense.
and people would be amused/confused/upset/interested but mostly appreciate it at some level.
Trollishness online aside we are serious about our noise and having played many gigs at least as inappropriate-lineup as this if not more so (eg hippy juggling performance stage of a psy trance festival) i've found people who do not want or expect to go see a noise band are usually on the whole very receptive of my music and I've had way more compliments and slightly annoying "wow that was crazy! have you ever considered adding... you know... BEATS to it?" conversations than insults or upset.
Sometimes it's much more fun to play to an unsuspecting audience than the Nth tuesday night dalston drone gig with the usual noise scene suspects and bunch of chinstroking hipsters.
we didn't JUST want to troll their gig
He has swagger and class. I like swagger. He, along with Ryan Gosling after seeing Drive are my man-crushes.
Just sayin' I like his Proco Rat.
I stand by what I said though!
They retweeted me. Abuse followed.
Note: I didn't @ them, it was just a statement. They must have searched for their name.
