Who likes Artrocker (http://www.artrocker.com/)? cause I sense tension there abouts.
evil auto linkage. http://www.artrocker.com/
What kind of tension?
I don't mind Artrocker. I think the bands they put on are *generally* not 'artrock' but rather trad garage rock (and therefore often dull after a couple of songs).
Tom Artrocker pissed me off with some class warrior bullshit in one of their emails but there you go...
as on many fronts they cover similar ground to DiS, whether this meant the two are competing for readership, and what the general DiS consensus was of them?
as discussed in the big artrocker thread a week or so ago, i really like what artrocker are trying to do.
because they like The Fog Band and supported us when we started playing in London.. I know some people find they are a bit heavy-handed in what they write, but then most indie writers are pretty horrible, aren't they? ;) What tension?
I would read it if it was free (which apparently it is outside of london?) but it's not good enough to actually justify parting money for.
