So glad that these EPs have now been reissued.
It's got to be one of the best records of the year, surely. I adore it.
Absolutely nothing wrong with 'Ancient Melodies of the Future'.
You might like him, but that does not him a non-cock make.
But Harrington is a cock.
Me me me! Let me be second. Now if I can just find someone to have the honour of being the first one to reconnect their heads to their bodies...
Why the fuck did none of you see Do Make Say Think? In my opinion they were head and shoulders the best band at the whole festival and NONE of you has commented on them.
'You, You're a History in Rust' is a great record. I think it's maybe a slight step back from the more experimental bent DMST showed on 'Winter Hymn...' but that's no bad thing, necessarily.
But, let's face it: the best record ever in this sort of instrumental rock genre ("post rock" is a misnomer) is still 'The Burden of Hope' by Grails.
So then: the final nail in the coffin of my interest in DiS...
Why 'Relationship of Command' inspires such admiration is beyond me. I used to think it was OK, but have come to realise what utter wank it actually is. It drags painfully, becoming almost unlistenably boring about half way through.
And Bloc Party. Oh dear.
As Parsefone says, no Wilco and no Sufjan Stevens.
*shakes head in pity*
Goodbye, once great website.
Repetition and rhythmic rigidity is the point of their music. People don't bag dance music for being repetitive. Battles are just dance music for the avant-garde-post-jazz-rock set.
