and so it's alright with me
is absolutely bang on
There was a pre-planned stage invasion which took about 5 full minutes for the band to orchestrate only for the singer to order people off stage again once the song was over. There was the fact that they kept having to get their sound guy to come on stage after pretty much every song to sort something out or tune something up. There was the fact that, although Queens Social Club is small in comparison to the arena across town, it's still pretty huge for a first (?) tour so the place was less than a quarter full.
Maybe it was a combination of the above, but there was a really strange feel to the whole thing.
are excellent, which is why the detritus that has followed is all the harder to take. Ho hum.
your thesaurus did you ?
has come out badly here
forgotten that this band existed?
is referring to his cock, you see.
of the picture between 6) and 7) there is clearly a length of dong poking out and touching the bowl. Grow up LC
who the hell sub-edits this stuff?
but the sentiment is there
what's that Dad like? I wanna meet that Dad.
No, but seriously now, take more Dads to festivals and have them provide their insight, that was my favourite bit.
as annoying as his? Does it make people want to punch you until you go limp?
but ultimately one that works more in conception than in practice. I can't help but think it's all a bit samey and dull. I suspect this is going to get very positive reviews as it is an album that gives journalists plenty to write about but, ultimately, it's a all a bit unsatisfying and tune-free
Rosetta Tharpe. Surely.
Although to imagine seeing her mentioned in Elle would be a bit of a stretch I guess.
is great. You've got that all wrong there sir.
There are some great moments, and it is nice to watch this band get darker and weirder with each album, but it all feels a bit samey. That said, Secret Door is one of the best things they've done.
that it's really badly written
"This is the kind of review
that gives this website a bad name"
some on DiS, have a bit of pride in what you produce.
well, actually, it is, it's just how badly written the whole thing is. Pitchfork reviews may be very often self-important, and trip over themselves in an attempt to show just how clever they are, but they at least give the impression of being written by vaguely competent writers. This Twang review is just plain bad.
America is so much better than the UK not only in terms of music but also music criticism. Say what you will about Pitchfork, there's no way this review would have got anywhere near that site.
to pan the poor quality of this review, but to be honest I'm just starting to feel a bit sorry for the writer.
but Ditto really does only have one song doesn't she?
probably without even downloading it first. 'kin ell, it's like the 90s all over again
"time is over-rated"
This is a band that is badly let down by the lyrics and the voice of the frontman. Meaningless, dumb, Oasis-style lyrics are not a good thing by any means, but they're better in comparison to the grating, cod-intelligence of bands like Maximo Park (IT'S GOT AN UMLAUT, YOU MUST PRONOUNCE IT CORRECTLY!). The guy used to read a book onstage for God's sake, what a tosspiece.
can't believe this hasn't been mentioned. The first (?) day had Weezer, The Strokes (mit Jack White for NYC cops), Jane's Addiction, The Hives, The White Stripes. Best. Line-Up. Ever.
