alot. what were the supports like?
the look rad. I think converse nicked Kurts ashes to draw attention to their new line.
the album is whack, and whats more we all knew it would be.
Blue and Pinkerton are both good, but they both came out years ago.
their relevence to modern weezer who essentially are a spent force is pretty obscure in my opinion, its like they could be two different bands.
Are going to make a shitload of money if they set up their own label.
and..........they are better than radiohead anyway.
however i wasn't cool.
amazing. i've changed my mind. i like radiohead now.
i'd say the £15 entry fee had alot to do with that. They see to be bigger in London than ever, even people who i work with who know nothing about music like them now.
Plus its early days for the record as well, they will do well on the festival curcuit.
'its better to be rubbish than mediocre'
if they album had just been BAD than that might have earned a better review. I think Kev's point is just that the album is 'meh'...and therefore deserves the minumum score.
that the record has been successful on a number of different levels, and it is certainly not a 'dark time' for the long blondes or whatever is alluded to in the review.
that said, the kooks are FUCKING SHIT.
the vast majority of reviews for the record have been very positive, even this website gave the record 8/10. Its done quite well sales wise too. crawdaddy? gigwise? I'm sure the blondes won't be losing sleep over that one.
and their album got amazing reveiws, 4 out of 5 stars in most places. The only place is saw a 'lukewarm' review was in NME.
that the whole thing seemed to be about the show and now the show is over the label don't care about the band anymore.
That is sad really. I think the best thing they could do for their credibility now is slam the label and the show like they are doing.
best of luck to them.
i met an A&R rep for universal about 2 years ago and she hadn't heard of any of the trendy bands of the time and said she only liked the killers and the feeling. weird.
with white rose movements roadie's once.
he is from the midlands, he has a well spoken midlands accent.
to the rumour that rivers play's up his 'crazy' image in some sort of attempt to be like Brian Wilson, Phil Spector, like a crazy pop genius.
It could also be that he hasn't been on tour for ages and he has regained some of his sanity.
either way, really enjoyed this interview.
MCR would be an outsider bet. Maybe R.E.M, Although they might headline one of the nights at glasto.
believe the hype it is massive.
Jack is quite shy but he is a lovely guy if you can get past that. And a big arsenal fan too.
Please please please let it be bad brains.
I'd like to disagree with everyone who says 'oh they are just doing the same thing as millions of other bands'. They are better than all those bands. stronger songs. thats why they have become successful. Big Up Gallows!
stupid people. but still people.
is the coolest member of klaxons.
is possibly the uncoolest person I can think of.
wow! I like Gallows, but it's strange how this year's number one is almost the complete opposite of Beth Ditto,last years number 1. I just hope Gallows are intelligent enough not to buy into NME's obvious plan to push 'nu punk' as some sort of fictional scene they have made up to sell to the kids.
I had a dream that i became the new drummer in W.A.S. I think i'd do a good job.
cause my mates are much fitta.
that was a bit harsh. I'm sorry for calling you a knob, but still....
shut up about hitler you knob. and grow up. I don't think killing 6 million jewish people counts as it being 'just his opinion'. And i don't think the holocaust should be compared to something as trivial as your opinion on music.
In yer face!!!! she is obviously punk rock to the core. hahaha.
i don't think liking the sex pistols makes you 'sound credible'- quite the opposite in fact. Her accent is no more fake then say Ian Curtis' accent or Amy winehouse's accent. Amy winehouse tries to sound like a black american woman!!!
is a lovely lyric. who gives a shit about what 'class' she comes from. I can't think of one vocalist who sings in their 'natural' accent, its all varying degrees of putting a different voice on.
she seems like a good person, i think people are unduely harsh on her.
i actuallly quite like it. it sounds like the wedding present.
for Andy Burrows solo record.
i thought they were dropping the disco beat thing? Matt Tong is an amazing drummer, they should make more of him.
I just wish they'd stop writing shit songs about each other.
I've never heard of any of the music you listen too!
he has a wicked blog. I love when emo kids blog about how messed up their little lives are. 'no-one talked to me today'. legendary.
The people dancing in the video are good.
these guys are fucking genius. can't wait for the EP.
sorry. couldn't resist it.
i actually quite like that.
had to quit music completely because of tinitus (constant ringing in his ears).
how punk rock is that!!!
their band name to 'Quorn'.
Stinking fucking hippies.
Do you think that Gallows will pave the way for similar bands to bag major label deals and if so do you think that is a good thing for the UK punk scene as a whole?
I like their fluffy hair. the cheeky chappies.
still as popular as ever hahahaha.
at worst he has had a full time job for 2 years.
however, i suspect he finished school when he was 16, fucked about in college or on the dole for a year, then the enemy got signed.
what the fuck does he know about the working class grind?
fuck.....Lostpenguin are on the bill, so i might even be PLAYING. wooohoo.
