and this is ok on that front but it seems a bit like reading Dickins or something. Really like trawling through mud. Here's a cumbersome example: "incongruously winsome, quasi-freakbeat jangle" when discribing About a Girl.
Don't agree with all of it but only skimmed read the end and generally, you're not emant to agree with reviews so much as appriciate what they're trying to say.
and I didnt' go because I was tired.
I NOW HATE MYSELF RIGHT NOW
she's just too fucking overrated, over opinionated, over exposed and more importantly.... UTTER SHIT.
Alex Turner looks like a right plum.
to be honest.
but I've only had one quick listen.
That record is a Mercury panels wet dream.
a total copy of Sonic Youth Goo cover? Anyone explain this link?
Sonic Youth Goo:
Well done Gaz me old mucker.
the spotify download is genius. It's the reason why DiS rules over most other music sites.
Ross to promote it? I do hope not.
but Sheryl Crow's version of Sweet Child o' Mine.
Oh and Madona's American Pie.
I was angry. AT THE WORLD.
just seemed to basically say "yeah we're working on shutting down p2p servers and illegal file sharing and you're all wrong to do it, but hey guys, you can see our point right?"
It's more bollocks about the music industry being light years behind what's actually happening. It's why massive "trends" seem to appear in music.... because one band like The artic Monkey's make it big and suddenly labels clamber to sign up a thousand sound a likes. It's also the reason why bollocks radio edits and alike exist. It's all about the money to these guys. p2p and filesharing represents a loss of cash and it's that simple. "Yes, but they're are a business". Agreed, but music isn't about business. At least it shouldn't be. No-one marvels at Lennon's songs and thinks "he must have made a packet on that" or hears Nirvana and thinks "I hope Kurt managed to get all the royalties he rightly deserved for that excellent tune".
Music is emotion and life. Not business. "I hope we're not alone thinking this". Well you are. you know you are. It's been said for years and years but millions. In what other industry is the poduct made by you, that the record complany market, but if you don't sell enough, you are in debt to them? It's bollocks. Ironically, this situation kind of reminds me of BT in the late 80s. It's not until they got competition they had to become a better company, and now, with the record labels finally losing power after 60 years of popular music, they're going to have to do the same thing too.
this is a good idea. Give it a chance people.
but just so there's a log of the issues:
Me going "arrrrgghhghghghghgh" into a microphone for an hour might warrent zero out of ten as it has absolutely no substance or meaning or value at all.
Composed songs with lyrics and melodies deserves more than a reviewer to go "yeah, this muic is like souless or something because you know, it is. 0/10" without even talking about the songs in any detail as to why it might suck or where it's generic or how it fails as a recording.
This review is 100% pointless. In fact, if I was to review this review, I'd be tempted to give it zero, but, realising this is a meaningless, overly opinionated reaction I wouldn't. I'd give it 2. As in number two.
Can we never have a review like this again please?
you don't review something zero out of ten. This is meaningless nonsense.
Way to ruin DiS's reputation as a serious music site.
in the bottom left corner of photo 12.
as they certainly do now, I still have a place in my heart for them. Everything up to and including the black album is absolute genre-defining genius.
Shame about the rest. Even the new stuff isn't up to much.
pleased people are listening.
you know, on account of him being a cock and all.
Not wanting Jay-Z at Glasto isn't rascist - It's 'cos he's fucking wank.
Anyone pulling the race card out is way off the mark. Listen to his music. IT'S SHITE. And as a headliner? Urgh.
Basically the line up FUCKING STINKS. It's gotta happen sometimes but hey that's the score.
Next year they'll get in some big names, trust.
it's exactly what I wanted to know about - It's also pretty inevitable, getting screwed. I see the point they try to make - anyone in their position would take the deal, record the shitty b-side but I don't think they would.
You CAN "stick it to the man" and not record the b-side. You don't get your album but you still "stuck it". You can't have it both ways - the album and the complete artistic freedom.
There was an article in OMM in Jan I think all about how the major labels are dying a death but have had it coming for years. All about, from the perspective of an experienced band manager, they screw over artists and consumers all the time but the internet is ruining them. So maybe they need shows like Mobile Unsigned Guff or whatever to get themsevles advertised.
I dunno, not sure what that's got to do with anything but the overall impression I get from this article is you don't need labels to get noticed and if you enter into a knockout reality tv show, prepare to bend over and take it.
potd you cynical gits.
But 29th Nov I think is.
but I personally think they're tip top.
"ToD: They're TIP TOP"
for users. So you plus on minus them on the basis of their nonsense.
That's a good idea.
Used to think he was a cock until I found out loads more about him. Turns out he ruled.
I played a gig with them in Kentish Town before they got famous.
What do ~I win?
P.S. YOU WERE SCREAMING AT YOUR MOTHER I WAS PUNCHING YOUR DAD.
The Secret Circus stuff was GOOD.
of course. Ah.
one of the only good music shops around. ARSE
a terrible, terrible album.
promoters her to gob off as much as possible to keep up the hype for what is actualyl a pretty lame, transparent little rich girl with a "celeb" dad trying her best to not be forgotten.
GO ON LILY, insult Madonna again. Yeah, she sucks. I'm much rather listen to "Smile" or that song you did with a FUCKING PUPPET FOR CHRIST'S SAKE that something shit like 'Get into the Groove' or 'Like a Prayer'.
Yeah Lily, God you're so hip and happening, what with your weird kooky fringe and the fact you wear trainers with ball gowns in a completely none-thought-out-staged way at all YOU TOTAL CUNT!
They rule I tells ya.
We're right in the middle of all these shite 90s bands reforming - Take That, Boyzone, 5ive, Spice Girls...
And a few more that I can't think of right now.
I guess you gotta just told tight and ride it out. What a crock of shit.
Lots of industry types wanking over shit bland music that's manufacturered in one degree or another.
You'll never a million types of noise / postrock / punk / industrial bands on there. It's like fucking TOTP.
Saying that, Lily "massive gob" Allen is a part of that shit elite so she can whine all she wants whilst her career blossoms from the hypocracy she chats about.
I really do dislike her, the media whore that she is. "I hate Madonna" she exclaims. Well done. Brilliant. Yeah, she's well old isn't she. Down with old people Lily.
but have they got a new bassist yet? How they gonna play eh? eh?
1) Australia - mmmmmm
2) Sensible Soccer - mmmmm
OMG, imagine playinf Sensilbe Soccer in Australia.
Slayer are total no-sellout meeeeetal. And yes, Metallica are so so so so so so so so shit these days, Rooster give them a run for their money.
Hahaha, Rooster... Remember them?
don't buy m a ticket. What was I thinking? Oh shit.
