Sums up my thoughts pre-listen, but I'm going to give it a shot anyways.
backed by 1987 fleetwood mac
I think they are based in kilsyth, banton and cumbernauld which are all, spookily enough, closer to stirling.
glasvegas = monday
Metallica came out early - should have been saturday? or Monday?
But they still sold more than glasvegas despite people being able to buy their album from monday.
it's all about the 'street poetry' - sing a song about a broken heart but put in a few references to drugs or fighting.
And the people that are into them are too young to remember JAMC or too old to investigate anything else.
It's bland, by the numbers lad rock dressed up as something else.
of songs that sound by turns like wham, barry manilow, jon bon jovi and some mash up of the dirty dancing soundtrack.
The lyrics are the most disappointing.
We need a better scottish band.
RUN TO YOU!!!!!!!
from ages ago - also called chapter, or chapter or something - it has Johnny L on it too.
It's quite good
unless he actually 'sounds'.
Similar to the way you may describe someone as "oh him, he smells"
or 15 cds
then bone machine, maybe raindogs too.
Then, if you have ears, you'll want everything anyway ; )
I don't care what he plays, i have written the review in my head already, "ace-o!!"
I had a dream last night that the gigs were being announced on the news by Garry Shandling.
I was screaming at him to stop telling people, cos I thought that's even less of a chance for me to go.
I am scotch from glasgow (incase you need to know)
were on the same " The Music show" as you guys.
This can't fail to be anything but amazing......
By being PC or one of those godawful phrases, people are being more judgemental, and worse, missing the point.
Chav to me means nothing. Ned is how we describe them up here. But let's deconstruct that. Ned says nothing about your social/class status, and everything about how you behave.
You work in a typically unskilled job and have a low income, you are defined by society as working class.
You glass someone on a night out cos you're drunk and it seems like a good idea - you are a Ned.
I was born into a working class family, my parents still don't own their house, and I still feel working class. I have a 'better' job than my social standing would decree, and my income is probably about average. I've never started a fight, never got drunk and vandalised anything. I don't feel I have bettered myself and become less working class, I'm just a functioning member of society who has an idea of right and wrong.
I think it's more offensive to assume that Chavs or Neds suddenly decrees you part of a class rather than a behaviour set.
everything I thought when I heard about this. Apart from the vomiting noise i made in my head.
Plus my umbrella has broke and was flush against my face for the majority of the walk up sauchiehall street.
Mike flowers pops
what was that?
It makes the streets sound like Talib Kweli.
Saint Jude's Infirmary
More in hope than arrogance
Lily Allen commenting on The Mentalists (named after the branch of 18th century magicians which gave way to the modern day psychics) " Good music but terrible name, we can see you're a bit wacky on stage we don't need your name shouting about it"
Jo Whiley on some screamo band " yeah i like you guys, screamo is getting really big now with Enter Shakari and The Gallows"
he could at least try and make it amusing for a start.
I've never heard anyone in cumbernauld speak english before ;)
I'm thinking now of the singer saying "god, we nearly crashed there" and that twat scrteeching "and we nearly crashed"
They asked napster to ban the users distributing their back catalogue plus one song nicked from the studio.
As did many other artists.
to have made it into great quotes of our time.
unable to play in time.
dave mustaine really pissed them off by saying that :)
yeah i just don't like slayer that much, they seemed kinda samey.
isn't the frontman.
Also old metallica records = better than anything slayer ever did.
i love the controversy.
cut out and keep cheat guide
I know the target is so big and slow moving that it's hardly hunting, but really....
It makes depressing reading.
Those girls from Totally Frank.
in very good spirits" he was so pissed he thought he was talking to tom waits ;)
is on the 21st.
on one hand i agree with you. The Monkeys don't need (A) this exposure and (B) the money.
On the other hand, who out of the 12 does? The obscure jazz dude maybe?
Then i suppose we enter the argument of why this award, specifically, was created. Is it championing new british music, or just adding to the silent PR? Definitely the latter in this case.
i try my best
more of a glasgow staple really.
although im sure some nedfs will nick his cravat/neckerchief.
i walked past jimmy carr yesterday - he is short and does have a big head
It's like interpol covering arcade fire.
Oh no, wait, i haven't, but im sure they are very, very poor.
I almost feel sorry for him, it's all going to end badly.
on "tango til they're sore"
and we all know that fullerov is wrong.
my heart is hemorrhaging at the injustice.
it might be something like this:
Velvet underground - sweet jane
JAMC - Some Candy Talking
Gloria Jones - Tainted love
The ronettes - be my baby
Al Wilson - the snake
Run Dmc - it's tricky
Lecrolux - the house is surrounded
Le tigre - deceptacon
Metric - monster hospital
bright eyes - let's not shit ourselves
then again, it might be different.
Some of the comments here are disgusting. Especially with recent events regarding a friend of Dis.
I'll travel to see the boss, oh yes....
St Pauli top, therefore he is ok.
be D-10 really
pedant ruins joke
