where's the barrel with the fish?
this reviewer has written a LONG piece about a band he detests. Why bother?
BUuuuuuuuuuuuuut for The Enemy I'll make an exception
just completely hilarious
And anyway, this is just another example of DiS/the Quietus/any other publication that slates these kinds of bands, being no where near as alternative as they want to be, or as they think they are.
Fuck the Enemy, they're just derivative SHIT. I'm super alternative i'm going to listen to THE NATIONAL instead!
Fuck off, sunshine. My mum would like listening to the National. It's not cool, and certainly nothing to be arrogant about.
We're not exactly witnessing the slaying of anyone's sacred cow. Still, great read nevertheless.
and not even to the extent they made a song that sounded a BIT like Common People, no, they actually rewrote common people. Amongst others
ALSO I don't care if my Mum likes The National, I don't listen to music to rebel... I'm not 14
The single 'Saturday' follows through like a worryingly moist bottom-brap.
The Quietus have been posting some proper shit lately for some reason :(
Pointless to have a go at such an easy target. And the prevalence of half-arsed wet flannel tat that passes for praiseworthy by loads of people on here nullifies the validity of the 'hur hur legerndry review' angle.
(And how come no-one has piled in and linked to pitchfork's 'proppa legerndry takedown' review yet?)
I would sell my first born child to be in a band where I could just RANT about everything I think is shit about modern existence, and sell shitloads and have a fervent fanbase at the same time. It'd be absolutely fucking brilliant.
Yeah their music sucks but I'd love to be in their position. Love it.
