This is like Mike Mogis recording Lightspeed Champion's album, I can't work out if that's amazing or shit.
Really really impressed, definitely going to check them out again soon whilst I'm up here.
a seriously rubbish song. It's just so plain and dull, it's like a bunch of 14 year old kids trying to start and indie band with absolutely no musical talent.
with my mate Joe and he loves them and seeing as we didn't know anyone else, I said I'd go so he didn't go by himself. I didn't realise you had to be a die hard fan of a band to be admitted to their gigs these days?
by Matt Bayles there, but I think the vocals sound a bit too 'epic' and not really very much like ¡Forward, Russia! Plus I just don't really like the style of their new songs. I'm seeing them for about the billionth time at Fibbers and all I can say is I'm glad IWACS are supporting.
because it's not as heavy and shouty as A-B Life, but not as reserved as Brother, Sister. And it's easily a 10/10 album.
seriously shit news.
I've had it for at least a year now I'm sure. I love the way the UK Bonus Tracks are just January 1979 and something else (as far as I remember). Absolutely fucking brilliant band though, despite my being in no way religious I still count them in my top 5.
about that picture of Sting...
AMAZING. Especially as I should have guestlist. Yay!
but probably for different reasons
Seriously though, this is actually the funniest news story in, oh, I dunno, at least the last few days.
makes more sense.
Hammersmith Appollo? I've actually never even heard of them. Strange.
I listened to The Burial Plot Bidding War the other day and it is SO good (never saw it live though, I'll admit that now). But I love this album, greatly improves on what they started on Gutter Phenomenon. Nothing will ever beat Hot Damn! though I'm afraid.
Should be awesome. Also, Youthmovies, IWACS and mewithoutYou all on one CD is honest to god the best thing I have ever ever heard in my life. I actually cannot wait.
Funniest thing I have ever heard. Especially as that idiot in the hat said 'na-na-nah' whilst being interviewed by ITV. Oh, the joys of having a brother who watches Channel U.
just because they have a fellow englishman in the team? This isn't a story.
set up a counter-campaign to get whichever Rod Stewart song it was back to number one instead?
is wicked. Then again I love anything involving Youthmovies really.
if only for the first two tracks alone! But the rest is great too.
This will be my first gig at Uni, and what a gig!
I also bought it in HMV last week.
Runners up: Brand New & I Was A Cub Scout.
I think people are putting this band down purely because of the amount of press they're receiving. I think for a teenage two-piece the songs they produce are brilliant.
the single reviews have been unnecessarily harsh, especially on here. 5 for '...Nightclubs', which I think is their strongest single to date, and only 6 for '...Adventures' by a 'contributer' with only 139 posts to date. Both of these songs didn't really hit me on first listen but if they're actually given a chance and especially after witnessing them live you can really appreciate how good these guys are for an 18/19 year old duo, and I think they deserve a hell of a lot more respect and praise for what they're currently creating. I personally love them and cannot wait for the album.
When my parents came back from Rome and told me they were staying in the same hotel as them and my mum had actually MET them my then 9 year old self nearly exploded. Those were the days.
have always run their tour van on used vegetable oil that they buy from restaurants. And they're actually a quality band. What I'm trying to say is, "Fuck off, Korn, you shitty publicity whores."
I didn't even know that was happening! That would've been amazing.
is the best song on the album, IMO. Ignoto was much much better though.
at Hammersmith Apollo on that day...
the solo on 'Take Control' on Maladroit is my favourite guitar solo EVER.
I really can't understand why everyone hates Maladroit either, I think it's a great record.
I've seen them twice before, but this is before I go to Uni, so I might as well get a ticket as it'll probably be my last ever London gig.
And also, in regard to the crowd, what an absolute bunch of cunts.
Except for the poor pretzel throwing bloke of course.
But then he realised his solo career was shite.
I really do love her. Come and live with me Lily, I'll look after you!
without a shadow of a doubt.
Same week as Converge as well, couldn't get much better!
Favourite DiS headline ever.
definitely still shit all over Green Day, even if Crimson was pretty average. And this is coming from someone who owns every single Green Day album.
