i did a music degree, now i work in a call centre...
hampshire county youth band, to be precise. which band were you in wendy?
they knew exactly what they were doing with their first album being very catchy, upbeat, not putting the early singles on it, so they now hold a strong position and are able to release an album which isn't so immediate. haven't heard it but this review makes me want to, which few reviews manage.
the worst internet promotion idea of all time. unless i see a raving review of this album, i'll forever remember them as 'the band that tried promoting an album by playing it on fast forward, complete with all the skipping a CD would give'
incredible. very slow moving organ, deep slow, eerie vocals. it's terrifying! but my god, it's hilarious too.
even if they're half as exciting as they were before they'll still shit on the rest of the indie bands from their time. and the songs are still bloody amazing.
i love run, WALK! they're really good live as well
as it happens, Under The Sheets is a great song. on Jools she was absolute shit. still, well produced pop star not being that good live, hardly a shocker.
i am guilty of this, the bus can be a loud and annoying as fuck drone of noise so i turn up my MP3 player. after xmas i intend on buying some good headphones so i can listen at a more sensible volume.
just imagine if it actually got to number 1. that would be great.
it won't happen, but if it did it would be amazing. but i'm not gonna support a pointless and stupid cause.
i think i'll hate this
but will certainly be checking them out.
Colour were one of my favourite bands, saw them several times including their final gig. was a brilliant show, Blakfish were brilliant too.
that sounds like a cracking gig
i stumbled upon Maps at Reading '07 while on my own, caught a few songs and was intruiged. 6 months later i picked up the album and i liked the overall sound, but not that many tracks really grabbed me. but I Dream of Crystal sounds amazing. i'm very exited...
i shall go grab this straight away
that would've been fucking brilliant
i read PC Gamer magazine obsessively. Seeing the name on top of this piece made me smile, safe in the knowledge it would be a good read, even tho I haven't read anything by Mr Gillen in about 5 years.
due to the amount of shit being uploaded, people need a direction to the gold more than ever.
think about how many shitty live youtube videos there are of a bands new song before they've put an official version up.
and now for a very very small price any bunch of idiots can record their music at good quality and upload it. that's why myspace is such a shit way of finding new music.
how the hell did it manage to get 2/10 ? the writing suggests it deserves a 1/10 or 0/10. are there really any parts that boost it up by a mark or two ?
surely there are plenty of others you'd want to change looking back ?
it's fun to look back and say aah we cocked it up, oh well !
1. be amazing
2. don't get your music out to too many people at the start of your career. eg. Kings of Leon suddenly exploded into the mainstream with their 4th album, if it was their first album that had done that i'd be intruiged as to where they'd be right now.
fucking stupid title.
Led Zep aged 6/7 that really opened my eyes but i didn't start buying records myself due to lack of money. my mates first album was Led Zep II at the age of 7 which he is very proud of.
then i guess it was a combo of Linkin Park and Sum 41 getting me more into guitar music but then The Darkness came along and i got really into metal, mainly through reading magazines.
and my music collection just expanded really, i don't when i first got an album buy a non-charting artist but i basically stopped listening to the radio in year 8/9 i think and that was when i started exploring for myself (even if alot of it was poppunk haha)
i defo didn't just copy everyone else.
i'm taking my friend to see him as a surprise cos i missed her birthday.
by quite how shit this band are
the rapping made me laugh
i could make a better album with just me and a triangle.
still fucking love the libertines
but i don't give a shit about the two of them playing together, if they got together, wrote some new songs, released it, esp. with the rest of the band, THEN i would be well interested, but for now this is about as interesting as warm pint of carling.
10 out of 10 sir
about the need to be 21 till the article pointed it out haha
makes me think of hanging around (meaning smoking a massive joint) with my best mate at home when i had fuck all to do and no money
comes across as a pretty safe guy.
i wanted him to be a prick so i could dislike his band and him as well
of course this article comes across as being a bit snobby, that's what happens when you try to put down anything that's successful and shit at the same time
wrote a massively long thing then closed my window unintentionally
my points were:
a) they were very good but didn't blow my bollocks off, which i expected, i don't know if i am bothered enough to go see them again, maybe i shouldn't big up these things so much.
b) the great skua with that video was incredible which made me not really bothered that they didn't play Lately
c) i really must get their b-sides cos Rock in A and Spirit of St. Louis were amazing, and i hadn't heard them before
d)i swear they played How Will I Ever Find My Way Home ? ?
e) Binary_Star - you think BSP are bland ? i can think of no one more the opposite
f) jmags is correct
g) and i reckon their set got more and more exiting as it went on, so slightly a shame they played Lights Out For Darker Skies 1st.
