in covering stuff amongst the modern taste makers, hasn't there? I think it goes hand-in-hand with the large amount of recycling of fashion and pointless nostalgia which seems to be prevalent at the moment. It's so much easier to just roll over something that has been done before, and you can be assured the cretins of this country will go "aw, that's nice, I know what this is, and it doesn't challenge the original in any way because it is essentially un-challengeable so it makes me feel safe inside".
The current lot seem to think that slowing a song down and sticking an acoustic guitar on it counts as a meaningful interpretation. It doesn't. For the record, these are my favourite covers:
Elbow - August and September
Cat Power - Satisfaction
Arcade Fire - This Must Be The Place
Elliot Smith - Thirteen
pleased with himself
he's so pleased with himself
there's a post post industrial arsehole
that song is in no way inane.
like this album :D
we wouldn't have Little Man Tate
her mouth is resolutely closed.
and, in fact, she doesn't look like she's sucking cock at all.
maybe this'll shake things up a bit. They're unutterably fantastic live.
to push the use of the nuclear solution upon Birmingham into the committee stage
don't understand why they didn't go with Sweet Dreams Sweet Cheeks.
I'm well looking forward to hearing their new stuff.
don't overdo these kinds of articles, though.
how you always manage to crowbar regionalism into every single discussion, no matter how inconsequental it is to the matter in hand, as it reminds me very much of me at your age. I'm from Manchester, I find Gallagher irritating.
that's the one I like.
who are also the good.
she was brill.
them listing contributors need to be whipped into shape!
this got 1/5, Bloccers got 3.
I didn't think you'd actually ask that failure question. She does give good advice though, can't complain
fourteen singles? Jesus H. F. Christ.
that puts Muse as the best British band around.
sounds exactly like Go To Sleep by Radiohead.
I agree with this. There's no doubt Albarn is a nobhead, but musically he's astonishingly creative and inspiring.
Perhaps you should have a cup of tea or something.
more than I thought I would. Damon's lyrics are like Interpol's: either they work terrifically are they're cringeworthy. Nature Springs has got the most sinister use of cockney whistling ever.
the second tower did look like it was blown up from the inside
from the direction of Guthrie
I'd give it 9/10.
they've got some ace b-sides. McGreggor is the best Tom Waits song he never wrote.
he is so funny in interviews.
I think it's great.
I thought this was going to be about our good Koopa-signing friends at Ditto Music. :(
