I know what you mean - I just think there are enough new bands concentrating on getting the presentation right without coming up with decent music to match. I know which I'd rather have them spend their time on.
she should be happy to take the blame.
you're right, "Gob-at-ring" took me a good five minutes to work out.
is that their album is promising, and that it does OK but not so well that they become absolutely massive, and then their label lets them make a second. Otherwise they could be washed-up, embittered and working in a Record & Tape Exchange by the time they're 25.
Trigger-happy on the Ctrl+V, but you get the idea.
Yes, and the time and the skills, and especially the money. If I listened to new music based on who had the nicest website, my record collection would be all kinds of shit.
of the chav girls posing in their underwear, I'm really not bothered.
and several people, here and in a thread on the music forum (http://drownedinsound.com/articles/1487956) have said ythat it's a great achievement. It is. Well done to Koopa for making history, if they do get into Sunday's Top 40.
That said, this isn't Record of the Day - most people on here are less bothered by the workings of the industry than the quality of the music. Surely that's what the band would want? For people to listen to the music and make their own judgement?
tell me "I Luv U" is a Dizzee Rascal cover...
So when the Official Chart Commpany says in its press release "any currently available download will technically be eligible for the Official Singles Chart", this isn't actually the case? That's interesting.
Could you explain a bit more about the data uploading? I'd assumed that these new rules would give any band selling downloads the ability to get into the chart, but apparently it's not that easy...
"Only one company in the UK can sort that. Guess which one."
Er... is it our old friends Ditto Music? We've missed having you guys around:
Was there ever a chance in hell that the Fall would be an influence?
reveals that you've previously posted such intellectual gems as "D-I-C-K", "F-A-G", and "G-A-Y", I think you'd do very well to stay quiet.
The look of sheer incredulity on his face is great.
for a limited time there was a choice of which photo was on the cover
it's obviously slowing you down. This article's more than two years old.
so I don't get cross about being away.
Direct debit is your friend.
Just had a look on Amazon and it's got "Thatcher Fucked The Kids" on it as well. Might have to order it.
I only heard him for the first time at the STA alldayer. I'm a MD/FT n00b.
or is that the same song?
What? You are a moron. I asserted that when New Order play Joy Division songs live, they frequently sound rubbish. Unless you're Sumner in disguise, your claim that this is an insult to you is ludicrous.
Branka was telling me last night that We Are The Physics are brilliant. Unfortunately I'm not in Glasgow.
Think they're both still at sixth form.
As for Todd's vocals being "rather too listless", I assumed that the line "am I in trouble? / Darling I apologise" was supposed to sound like he didn't really mean it. I could be wrong, of course.
Why would anyone fake it? If someone had signed up as "tomsmith" to take the piss, the post would have been a lot less defensive and a lot more funny.
This makes me sad.
for personal insults. I'd have given you a sensible answer if you'd asked me like a grown-up, but as it is you can go fuck yourself.
if they want to finish the album.
After all, Assumpta is the mother of all fuck-ups.
Because they quite frequently make great songs sound rubbish. That's why.
Where does she say that they taste like chicken?
That song "Vacuum Cleaner" is actually Awesome.
Surely a lack of consent is kind of implicit...
could fancy his chances in a staring contest with a corpse.
"Rocking Chair" was fucking bobbins, too. Wouldn't even make it onto a Greatest B-Sides compo.
This thread is like some kind of retard magnet.
is going to feel my wrath. I'm fucking sick of it.
I was wondering when you were going to show up here, complaining that Trencher weren't extreme enough for you. Dude, you're so heavy...
I assume the name "Uzi and Ari" is a Royal Tenenbaums reference.
I've read a LOT of total fucking bullshit in my time, but the monumental stupidity of that last line deserves some kind of award...
Pickled Onion are clearly the best.
I just wish the proportion of dimwitted misogynistic fucktards was slightly lower...
