Also want to add that I love the first three records, always will.
Us vs them review but you show passion Sean, that much is true. Terrible first single though, no? And that Olympics track made me laugh when they did it at the Olympic ceremony, particularily the really high, 'I'm gonna Wiiiiiiiiiiiiinnn' bit. Not really that interested in this new one. Fair play if it gets people into them and they go and listen to the earlier stuff, least they aren't completely shooting themselves in the foot in regards to the legacy they're gradually working toward. Certainly not a dull band by any stretch and one of the best live acts I've seen (and I've seen loads having worked at a music venue for best part of a decade)...
not a great review, comparing listening to music whilst sitting on your arse to being at a gig is not a great basis for an argument of whether or not it is accomplished and fun, and this music definitely is. Met the guys before too and they were sweet fellas. Ace live too. Definitely more like a 7/8 out of 10 for me.
absolutely gutted that Baskins are calling it a day, never gigged enough and were under appreciated I think.
It's the Dog and Parrot in Newcastle, not the Parrot... SQUAWK!
no mention of power metal band \m/ here, I am dissapoint! Wow, Marlow and Mr Lynn on here, whatever next?
This band are absolutely amazing, can't wait to see them in September!
haha, class! Best Futureheads video, and in general mint!
DAMN, maybes I'm going to compare every ATP I go to the the 'vs the fans' I experienced a few years ago, I guess next time I should do my homework and listen to some of the bands that I didnt know, apart from a mixtape from a friend, I was disappointed by Pierced Arrows, The Drones, Wax Fang (missed the Prince set) but The Fall, Pavement and Broken Social Scene were worth the ticket price alone imo. What happened during Monotonix set?
yeah cos U2 are great, sic
I reckon it's a good idea, yeah I'd buy it. Would be interested to see what the track listing is though.
why does this photo thread not work? hawayyy!
The journey there, we started off at 6.am all feeling hungover because we were excited like it was fucking christmas or something.
Drove down in an ex-AA van (complete with yellow flashing lights) with a mixtape called 'Start the journey...quietly' which had a mix of Sigur Ros, Elliot Smith with pangs of Melt Banana and Japanese wierd pop. Great journey and so comfortable as I had a captain's chair and an elevated height (VW's are so good for this) Whenever we were in a tightspot on a motorway, I'd seize at the chance to put on the flashing lights and cars would move out of the way, I thought I may get caught by police but that never thankfully happened.
We had a CB radio and tuned into a wierd conversation between to old truckers talking about Koi fish and the ideal temperature for breeding ??!! we would intercept now and then with random swear words or rapping which confused them no end.
Driving the small roads to Somerset was really amazing, nice scenery and a smooth ride, unfortunately the journey back was full of traffic and we were all hungover (one of my mates decided to have a hash brownie for the journey back, consequently he was wasted for the entire journey home) I was mildly depressed having left the festival wishing every day could be like it. The van was sold recently and I doubt my Mini would make it all the way there without issues. I do want to go next year like...
These are really bad like, anyone remember that metal hardcore band who did drum and bass? pitchshifter? they were also horrible shite for pillheads who thought they were punks!
They announced this on your own forum, for shame DiS, nah I'm attending the Cumberland Arms show, it's going to be sweaty and crazy and there'll probably be ukelele players downstairs at the venue. Fo' sho!
This genre was only good because of Capdown, now they're ca putt, this stuff just makes me cringe with embarrassment. Seriously, music for kids to mosh to, but nothing else!
And also, that Paramore band, how horrid are they? cept the ginger minx who sings, otherwise, induces vomit fits and fever.
Parts and Labor
Otherwise spot on I think! wish I could've voted for 6 then Field Music's Tones of Town would've got me vote!
this fucking sucks, one of the best gigs this year was their album launch at the Cumberland Arms, FUCK!
Jo Whiley is a shit eating bitch, I fucking hate her with all my mite!
at their halloween gig, should be a blast! I'll be dressed up as a zombie, with lots of blood/scars. YEAAAH!
are utter utter dog shit, seriously, what the hell? one of the worst band names and worst songs I've heard for a good few years (Hard Fi excepted)
MONDEO POP! hahahaha that's amazing! what a fucking line! this review is spot on!
courtney love's granny
...its like the 'standards' of everything regarding popular artists is to 'have' an album, an album is in theory a concept to a particular theme of the artist/s in terms of time and place and how the songs were written.
It's a bold move but I have to ask, does good music come from simply 'getting it out there' as opposed to having sufficient influence and just being a talented lucky sod in the first place?
Not to say that Ash don't surprise me, they're full of surprises, good eye for melody and a pop tune. I quite like the retrospective nature of the new album, then again I absolutely loved '1977' you cant get a more perfect driving song then 'Lose Control' honestly! (ah Grand Turismo)
yes yes! saw these at leeds fest 2002 in the Radio 1 tent, red ties, black shirts, mint.
the new biffy clyro album, they had one or two good songs originally but taking on the world of pop for them is the first step in losing any creative ground they might have had since 2002.
is a work of art in itself, I'm gutted I missed these at ATP vs the fans, had to do with a mushy sounding Wilco, they are going to tour this new record I hope?
my flat mate said was when he came in and heard this was "is this the pixies new song?" but besides that I love Envelopes, I hope they remain distinctive though...
