Also my 2nd time, my first having been Glastonbury 2003. That probably ranks as my all-time for any band (and yes I have been to a few in my time, as I approach my thirties) but I thought Wednesday was a great set. London crowds of that size always attract a few wankers, but if you know how to avoid them you can have a great time.
I like the line "In Rainbows was well represented", they played all 10 tracks!
Dice is brilliant. Shame about the rest...
they played the hits on the Wednesday, absolutely fantastic!
Though did anyone else feel the ridiculous diversion to the tube was a little OTT?...
Sad as he used to come across as a good guy. The other 3 all come across as top blokes, I wonder what they privately make of his strange outbursts and cringing monologues...
I'd recommend both of these:
and that is a rather unpleasant hatchet job, but I have to admit the harshness of the criticism did make me chuckle...
Or is it just me???
was out on the 16th (that's what Amazon and Play have it down as)???
it's not really one to watch in the office, unless you want some questioning looks from fellow colleagues!
seemed like a fairly nice guy when they were on Jools. The music is obviously utter gash, but at least he wasn't doing that "I'm cool though I can't string a sentence together" shtick Pritchard is so keen to adopt...
that most people who like indie films (though a horrible badge it summarises nicely) should like."
That sentence didn't finish properly.
It's worth mentioning that the marketing people behind the film have taken a pounding for making it seem like an average teen movie as opposed to a quirky 'Little Miss Sunshine/Royal Tenenbuams/Broken Flowers' oddity.
A good film that most people who like indie films (though a horrible badge it summarises nicely).
The soundtrack has great songs, so if you liked the music in the film it's worth buying (particularly for those who might be unfamiliar with the Moldy Peaches).
Life doesn't always have to be complicated...
All these pretentious wankers getting on their high horses. Yes it is a corporate sellout but as anyone knows that is the world we live in. Radiohead have made some of the best guitar music ever produced and though the majority of people who are fans will own all their albums, you really can't argue with the quality of the songs here.
And if this means more people get to share in the joy of listening then what is so bad about that?
The attitudes expressed here are exactly why people don't find so many great bands accessible and why they instead listen to the likes of Snow Patrol and Keane (massively inferior and mediocre, but sans bullshit).
they are point blank refusing to allow any posting on the issue.
They have clearly taken their ball home...
"Rewardingly, he’s also fully unable to acknowledging of that status"
crown as the biggest credible band in the world is Arcade Fire, third album depending of course.
In case you haven't noticed, they're not English...
To hear how the female artist thing should be done get the Feist album...
(most notably the frequency with which it awards 5 stars to albums), but it does at least try and offer a broad range of coverage that goes beyond the best new haircuts.
I remember when the NME used to try and subvert what was expected, now it's just desperate - does anyone remember Conor saying he's never put Anthony & The Johnsons on the cover because he was "too weird"?
What a fuckwit.
really grows a pair when they do it live, doesn't it?
The Guardian's list.
to be the Funeral of 2007, it's so far come top in Uncut, Stylus and DiS. I can see it also being NME's number one (you know how they like to copy others), while I also think 'All My Friends' will end up giving Jimmy-Boy the overall Single of the Year (Mojo, Stylus again, probably that wanker Conor)...
if the above headline had been for a story from 3 months ago, and had actually been true!
really doesn't do him any favours does it?
As someone who was 15 when those 3 records Mike mentions came out, I can well and truly empathise with his feelings and the fact that someone whose job it is to care about music finds it hard to replicate those feelings of adoration he felt for records such as What's The Story, The Bends and Different Class.
Maybe it's the fact that at 15 you're at the stage where you are really forming your taste, but I also long for the albums that you can just listen to over and over again, albums that stay with you and that you never tire of hearing. There's obviously loads of good music out there but is there much you can do that with.
Maybe it's the choice you get with iPods that also plays a part...
By the way, there are 3 great Oasis albums. Check out 'The Masterplan' to see just how productive Noel was for just over 2 years and how many tracks he pissed away as B-Sides...
The piano loop at the end of Slow Show is the most beautiful thing you'll hear all year...
are now eating their young:
The NME reckons they sound like U2.
505 is outstanding, while Teddy Picker and Fluorescent Adolescent are also pretty great. 8/10 seems fair to me.
doing I Don't Like Mondays by Boomtown Rats also, was used on The West Wing n(greatest TV show of all time).
doing Firestarter by Prodigy, has anyone heard this?
Is actually surprisingly ace.
it was 'High & Dry', apologies, the sheer awfulness made me forget for a moment...
I've ever heard was Liberty X doing 'Fake Plastic Trees'.
I felt like crying...
Spitting venon is the best track, especially the part where it goes from full-on mental to subdued halfway through.
There are many other bands who can give us concise indie-pop songs on a particular focus (if you like that go buy the new Rakes album, which is also ace).
When I listen to Modest Mouse I expect an extended mesh of thoughts, ideas and influences, seemingly a mess but somehow managing to make sense and that's what this is.
Great album, go out and buy it.
This one was pretty fair I thought, basically saying that Mika should signal the end of 'ironically' liking utter shit...
A TOTAL NON-STORY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
sounds like a grower. He's left the best thing for the very end, after 25 minutes of nothing, with 'Cu*nts are running the world'. Top tune, as well as a great sentiment.
