whats the beef?
The reviewer is actually from Sheffield...
(I have no idea why I know/think this)
like how do you do it, do you need to have two pages open? i can only see one side of it. fuxake
i did that and it just gave me a border
he's not done them all as replies to the same thing. I've only replied a couple of times (got far less fun things to be getting on with).
easiest way to see all the posts is to search for my username
there are also some funny ones coming in to DiS too https://twitter.com/#!/search/realtime/drownedinsound
My personal favourite fan tweet (so far)
@DrownedinSound what a load of bollocks slating @Reverend_Makers you ever been to a reverend gig? The atmosphere there speaks for itself
a band got a shit review and fucking throw a strop over it? bands like that don't deserve anything. fucking rubbish cunts.
although i suspect you were making a funny
"100 band from manchester that are better than the ting tings".
just a list. totally brilliant
ting tings are from salford.
My life will have been worht living
but I did wonder when reading Hayden's (hilarious) review how long it would take the egomaniac to go utterly bush. what a total momo.
nice to see he's living the life and read the review within minutes of it going online.
bad review, arrogant, doesn't have the balls to address this
reviewer, journalist, reverend front-man, cry
He didn't answer as he was *in the studio*
is this cunt is wheeled out as a "celebrity fan". fucksake. why couldn't he have been a Blade?
on their official twitter today, offering a download of that execrable 'bassline' track
man alive someone is trying far too hard to be funny (and for once it's not me)
Nobody else would have read it otherwise...
god knows what it would take to make me read a music review
Nobody's coming out of this with a lot of dignity. The review is quite funny, in pretty much the exact way the witty, smart kid at school taking the piss out of the slow kid who doesn't get it can be quite funny but t that doesn't make it a particularly impressive thing to do.
But obviously singers who react to those kind of reviews will always look like idiots, as is the case here.
But he won't. Because he's literally got no testicles.
He could've made a HILARIOUS fake account.
Because he's literally got no testicles?
Well, yeah. That too, I guess.
it was pretty funny
used to post on the HotS board. bit of a mug. JUST THOUGHT I'D SAY.
yeah, this Rev guy is a total narcissist. if his music wasn't already awful, I'd encourage people to rip into it anyway. people aren't obliged to be nice and concordant and like your music just because you worked really hard and think it's great. ugh.
I work really hard doing DiS too. If I work harder than he does, does that mean I win (a rabbit)?
putting yourself through the album you're slating.
or time setting up and running DiS.
you already have to put up with a community of belligerent & sexually frustrated nerds, and now some uppity cunt with some music band has the NERVE to criticize your reviews?!
£160 though; not cheap.
reviews 'Sweet Chin Music' by the Heartbreak Kid.
Maybe you should personally do a review of this album. Be fun to see what you think about it.
tempted to live blog it.
And Jessie J http://drownedinsound.com/releases/16079/reviews/4142296
i'm not allowed to admit to loving that Anna Calvi LP now?
This trend of blogs n websites being deliberately controversial to get traffic fucking pathetic and why the indie scene is so fractured
(or assume you do)
who wants some?
I remember when this happened with some Holy Roar numpties and it was lot's of fun. I hope this escalates further.
Can't there be some DiS competition to win something and you have to submit great ways of using the new cd from these chumps. basically, just antagonise him further.......which shouldn't be hard judging by how he has acted so far as clowns like this need to give up.
@crablin just stop tweeting me if you would is all I ask
incredible world-weary tone
@crablin why u tryna pick another fight wi me? I've done nothing to u
I feel an anti-bullying song coming on.
makes me laugh when "journalists" (who are essentially volunteers) squeal when a musician gives them shit back!!! typical bully mentality
I found out the other day that Didz Hammond from The Dirty Pretty Things is a DiS scribe
it seems relevant
Is the indie scene so fractured? I've never heard anyone complain or even mention that before.
WHY DON'T WE ALL STICK TOGETHER TO STOP FRACTURING THE "INDIE SCENE" MAN.
And Guetta is our generation's Thatcher
bassline single review
Literally every reviewer loves this album. The one place that didn't like it now won't shut up about it. Go figure
Yeah, we've still not gotten to the bottom of why the site is doing this :(
An actual lyric from the album. Yes, the year is 2012.
@amazon album of the week 8/10 Daily Star, 4/5The Independent, 8/10 Zoo,4/5 Glamour 'its a riot'NME . Get it here
well, if Zoo like it...
Might mellow the guy out.
Sean Virgin vs The world
in the same way Falco says it. You know the way; brimming with disgust and loathing.
they could go for a pint together.
'Reverend & The Makers and/or Cast'.
I'd hate to see him after a 1/10!
pretty watertight defense he's got too.
@seaninsound 3rd line of 1st ever song "to cook and to clothe and to clean and to screw is not the sum total of all she can do".
He's just started rambling about the depression of a peer
Sean Adams ?@seaninsound
in sheff they all say r8 (as in 'raight gud' as in 'that is really good')
for his insightful views on the Eurozone and the Greek coalition government have regrettably gone out the window?
He'll send you a shit in a pizza box soon.
...On libellous ice.
i mean does it lower the opinion that right minded people have of him? doubt it.
& even so, the simple defence that sean genuinely believes his statement to be true will allow him to continue skating away without fear of the ice breaking
not that i'm taking the metapor too far
according to wikipedia WHICH MUST BE RIGHT he has a first from Sheffield... must have smoked a fuck of a lot of dope since...
he dropped out of uni according to this interview - http://www.pennyblackmusic.co.uk/MagSitePages/Article.aspx?id=4476
he apologised for calling you a c**t which I wouldn't have done if you'd have called me sexist. Lower your eyebrow fool!
surely the reason you called him sexist was the gay abandon he was throwing cunt around with?
Or you can search in the search box.
you are following me. :D
how was your trip?
don't go away again
I've no money left now anyway.
mate they gave the new enemy album 0/10 someone's taking the piss they are a joke site
just because i spelled laura mccure's name wrong a few times
Funny since I mentioned taking folk to court not one of the trollers has messaged me! interesting factoid
Can ice be libellous? News to me, innit.
If he's expecting his band's usual brand of lad rock to go down well with today's critics he really is out of touch with current music. Either make a virtue of being unpopular with smart ass bloggy types types or can it.
Annoying and creepy whenever anyone over the age of 30 uses abbreviated text speak.fuck off M8......
their music is bad
*sits and waits for response*
it was meant for revered and the bad music makers
but that review is brilliant. "A step-aerobics dance track" really made me smile.
You've got to love a really well written bad review.
if I was The Reverend I'd be using a few lines from that to advertise the damn thing. Y'know those stickers you get on the front of albums with quotes from reviews, yeah? Just imagine one of them with:
"Mashed-up music for mashed-up times, so hold your hands aloft and unite as one. In. Rev. We. Trust." ~ Hayden whatshisface, Drowned in Sound
"A Berlin Wall of sound collapsing through your speakers. Drop this in your Grandma’s crib and give her some cheap pills to munch on, ‘cos this is as real as it gets." ~ Drowned in Sound
"It’s indie-step. No it’s indie-rave. Nah fuck it, it’s the Reverend and The Makers and they’re back after a three year hiatus. Can I get a hell yeah?" ~ Drowned in Sound
etc. Just neglect to mention the score and you're sorted. Much better than whining on Twitter.
" "I'm not giving these bedwetting blogs any more free traffic." "
he's done his research.
Presumably The Rev, or an over-enthusiastic fan, or a fan under instruction from The Rev, has gone pretty big in trying to co-opt the wiki entry into the R&TM PR machine. With a similar level of subtlety to that new album title.
'Late in 2005, fellow Sheffield band Arctic Monkeys released their debut single, and McClure was hounded by major record labels, reportedly offering him sums of up to £150,000 to make an album like Arctic Monkeys. McClure declined the offer, and decided to do everything his own way, managing to sell out The Plug in Sheffield twice, a venue with a capacity of 1,000 people, while still unsigned.'
'For the fans
Jon McClure puts on an acoustic gig in the car park of most venues. These sets normally last between 30–45 minutes and this is the type of thing that McClure is becoming synonymous with amongst his fans. He also invited fans to a "backing singer evening" to help record vocals on an upcoming single. He is heavily involved in the Instigate Debate group, and offers to carry out private gigs in fans homes to anyone who contributes.'
leave him be all you lot, he's bringing music back to the masses. Integrity totally in tact,
get him down yer house Sean for an intimate affair and cat_race can bone his mrs
like, fucking phenominal: It's from another galaxy of shitness.
Cannot be unheard
i don't get it
it's a bad review
he's so inspired, just writing about what he knows
lay off him sean
Is sean refusing to give him his own messageboard or something?
@seaninsound so court then yeah? cos your not calling me sexist and getting away with it
as sean refers to himself
that sort of thing doesn't fly here.
I can just see it now:
Rev: Judge, this man called me sexist
Judge: *Blank Stare*
Judge: Get out.
The Reverend's dialogue reads like some drunken, steroid munching, meathead who's not happy with the way you've looked at his woman in the pub. Yet all you were trying to do was scope out where the toilets are.
*Turns to Count Chocula on front of cereal packet which he is using for roaches*
''Let's go ahead and file a 'suit, Count''
*Falls asleep sat upright*
as, according to his lyrics:
I bet that your son's got more uncles than most/
who's this strange man eating frosties and toast/
I bet that your son's got more uncles than most/
introductions at breakfast, frosties and toast
Lionel Hutz: Reverend, I don't use the word 'hero' lightly, but you are the greatest hero in rock n' roll history.
(I have a long memory for shite TV ads)
Criticising me for liking Soundgarden
what a chump.
the issue here isn't gender. It's one of class. Of sneering middle class bloggers laughing at working class tastes yet again
@Reverend_Makers Total Class Album Guys!Start to Finish! At Least a 9/10 and that is just on first listen. Tickets bought for Edinburgh Show
Retweeted by Reverend&TheMakers
be so fucking funny :'D
But I'm scared because he doesn't like women. (or so Sean sayas)
It's because I'm a woman isn't it.
@seaninsound Shut your face dork, haven't you got a website to re-configure and some sheets to dry, your site gets 1/10 ?#bedwetterindiedork?
If Foley didn't hate me. I would offer him my womb for his children.
IN A PUB
IN THIS PUB?
At least give me that. I don't know many people in Nottingham.
but I live in Edinburgh and he works here. Only me and foley. We don't take to other humans too well.
I did not know you had moved though. Makes sense now.
I'm off to buy a hat!
if cat_race sees this post. I'm off to get some popcorn and ringside tickets.
you're getting confused
He was all over Dino in the morning thread the other day. All. Over him.
His love for foley is new found I think
You just say "court, then?" and then you go down the nearest court and just have a bit of an argument in whichever bit of the court is free at the time and then a judge says "alright break it up lads" and makes one of you give the other some money and then you go for a drink?
I'm from a working class upbringing and I despise this *Let's all act like bells listening to REAL MUSIC with GUITARS singing rhyming couplets about CRISPS or you're a sneering middle class person*
missing out on all the action :(
fling him some crumbs and watch him gobble them up!
What a hero
it's all a bit Alan Partridge.
cos i really wanna say something about the racist sexist ugly fat murderer that is the reverent guy but i'm not sure if i would get away with it.
when my mothers one?
and see his reaction if an artist got all hissy-fitty about one of HIS reviews.
I probably woulda been a bit more reactive if I actually penned the review...DAMN YOU JESSIE J!
or clicked the report this user button
I'm nice. I really am.
I'm cringing my face off but I can't stop looking
he was doing that all last week too.
must be my fault.
as if there's only one person who writes the playlist at Radio 1. Making this faceless tormentor female is probably his latent sexism coming into play again I guess. He just can't help himself, the cunt
omg foley is blocking me on twitter
BECAUSE THEY SOUND NOTHING ALIKE
'Oh raight', it's a Sheffield thing innit.
alternately begging to be played and slating them
