somehow I feel very powerful right now.
...I think. :)
I stand corrected! Didn't realise the budget was that big.
"IT'LL probably still make more..."
Like, it's probably still make more than, say, Shaun of the Dead did. And then it'll probably kill it on DVD sales.
who thinks this is a pretty bland interview.
best review I've read for a while.
pretty much DiScredits any review.
unless this album is mind-bogglingly amazing, they're gonna get it in the neck from critics and fans alike.
haven't read a single thing about this that doesn't start off 'Foals, remember them?'
but, hey, live by the sword of hype die by the sword of hype, I guess.
bumped into their manager at a gig the other day. prompted me to get Finelines out of the mothballs.
though, somehow, it doesn't sound quite as great as it did when I was 17... ha.
now THESE on the other hand: http://www.morethings.com/music/elton_john/elton_john-110.jpg
that blog on why they've split is absolutely spot on. should send a chill of recognition down the spine of everyone who's ever been in a band.
tsf have been a huge fave of mine for a couple of years now. live, they were monsters, and their new songs were really starting to get scary.
curious to see what they all end up doing.
yes in a big way.
and you don't even like these guys!
i've been sat here for the past couple of minutes reading and re-reading all your ill-informed comments.
listen closely to Timbaland's music and put your petty indie prejudices to one side.
i'm not one of those people who mindlessly goes 'Timbaland's a musical genius'. He's made some pap that he just did for money.
but, hell, he's made some amazing music.
and, yes, he made that music for money too.
i really hope that unsavoury, misogynistic tirade was at least semi-ironic.
if not... good God.
don't let the bastards get you down.
saying that, you guys all hate me for not hating Keane, so I guess it's swings + roundabouts.
why by something you have very little intention of ever listening to...?
this is how the lady sold 10m copies of the last one.
do we think will pick this up by mistake?
in the week when Scissor Sisters were outselling the entire Top 40. Combined.
that's gotta hurt, especially considering that he basically created the SS.
if you'll excuse the pun.
really gutted i couldn't make this, but glad to hear Mr. Spaceman's back.
that loads of people could have conflicting opinions about something as open and shut as a band's 'best' song?
and it's obviously the version of Fake Plastic Trees from 'Live @ The 10 Spot'.
Timbo's already made two of the best albums Jacko never had with his new best mate Justin Timberlake.
JT's first album, amazingly, was largely derived from songs The Neptunes offered to Mr Jackson.
that is all.
tonight. Camden. that's where i'd rather be...
and that's where i'll be.
that would have been so cool.
producers in this genre and more like ideas-men who have legions of grunts doing the actual engineering without ever getting credited.
i mean, Pharell, P Diddy, etc. employ people who just go through CDs and sample sounds for them, for example.
got to this one a bit late, but...
man. the list of questionable bands you like appears to literally be as long as my arm.
i know you're probably trying to shock people and stuff, but you really need wooden ears to refer to Cobain as a 'talentless wanker' with any kind of conviction.
for clearing that one up.
"We think the same things at the same time, we just can't do anything about it".
If that isn't a big f__k-off pop hook, I really don't know what is.
i quite like their new single.
i'm going straight to hell.
these kids being signed by somebody by early next year.
along with PopShop, they're about the best unsigned band around.
or does that dude on the right from WAS look like Dick Valentine from Electric Six...?
and, Mr. Diver, you bring laughter to my day once more.
oh, that's why.
i think Oasis has doomed the DiS boards to the same Groundhog Day that plagues their music.
the tightest band they've ever seen.
i always feel quite sorry for any other bands they play with (I've played with them) because they shame all and sundry within about a five-mile radius.
still haven't gotten into them on record, mind...
one of the best bands around, signed or unsigned. especially live.
really hope it happens for Gypsy this time around 'cause Querelle were f__king magic too.
what does "For a band like Scissor Sisters, it makes all the right moves, and surprisingly, a little more" mean?
a little more what? a little more desperation to break America?
a little more desperation to sound like a 90s remix of a 70s Elton John track...?
their 'rave' in Hoxton Sq. was secret, it would appear.
i remember Wayne Coyne saying once that even after the Lips signed to an indie, they were basically one van theft away from splitting up.
i'm sure you're a lovely person, but right now I am consumed by, y'know, anger whose motivation is unadultrated jealousy...
i DID suggest last week, in response to the 'Left' review, that a third album was by no means inevitable.
be nice to me - this does not happen often.
this is hella late in the day to post a news story.
