any half successful bands doing the same thing right now, apart from the few who are immersed in the constantly ongoing yet constantly non-mainstream garage rock revival scene.
comedown, though, really.
and they've been rubbish since bohemia.
at HMV today, too.
waited till the late afternoon, during which time we got free hash and ketamin. so the ride back was very pleasant as well. devendra banhart, a bump and a smoke.
AND no queues and no mud.
they were the best band i saw at glasto (apart from leonard) by a long long way.
DiS does have a nice range of writers.
anyone who said that this was a predictable piece is silly, because DiS are usually rather moderate to shite albums (see - foals and Bloc Party).
shame. i\ll just go back to listening to 'dandy's rule ok' again.
there must've been about 6 in the last few months. STOP IT!
four and twenty
the most heavily psychedelic of all of their albums, i was worried they might water themselves down after DIG! or go all electro after 'We Are the Radio'.
great review, just what i was hoping for.
take that back!
you obviously haven't heard the right things.
just figured that as i couldn't see it in the editorial que/it hadn't been reviewed in the week of release it would be forgotten!
i wasn't mad before, though, i was more or less joking.
wasn't the new brian jonestowbn massacre album reviewed? when it would clearly go rather well with the large and fantastic interview.
and it's a fantastic record! psych doesn't get enough attention on here. instead you prefer to publish another bloody futureheads review (we don't need another one)
on DiS these days, and alot of it is definitely not 8/10
i want some more really really damning reviews, braver journalism!
i guesshe just got kinda pissed off with that DiS interview being his last of the trip. i guess he had to do alot of interviews and recycle the same subjects.
a cunt and a king. a musical genius and a shit talker. a refreshing amount of self belief and a true outcast.
and he's totally genuine.
should be put at the start of the article really.
as should be the name and background of the author, for clarity's sake.
i think they make good songs that are slightly eccentric in a nice way and slightly poopy in a nice way and slighty rocky in a nice way.
not groundbreaking, but i like it.
how he just seems so bitter and cold when all the music is so jolly and happy.
is available for free on their site.
fuelled by amphetamines and MDMA...
and it kinda shows on the album, some of it could do with some more work (well, the pre-release, release back in september suggested so)
definitely their most spaced out and dark record yet, really looking forward to buying it and seeing them again.
and yeah, i love and hate anton in equal measure. occasionally a brilliant and coherent man, other times a shit spewing, violent, angry bastard.
he still makes great records, though.
it's integrity has probably suffered from the cynical marketing and affiliation with fox.
i'll probably end up seeing it, though, obviously.
trouble is, films like this, and soundtracks like this (as mentioned in the review) are meant to sound personal and intimate, but you know that every other fucker will listen to it.
it was nice listening to and performing 'anyone else but you' with my girlfriend when it was not well known and it was personal.
call me elitist, but i think this music is made more special by an amount of exclusivity.
teenagers don't like to be pigeonholed, and this product seems to put us all rather neatly into the 'indie' hole.
i resent it.
sounds pretty wild. i still enjoyed reading it.
but i expected nothing more. he must get so bored of these.
PAH! i stopped reading after that.
partly because i was offended (due to my undying love of psychedelia) and partly because i don't need to be told that the new dead meadow record is good, as it obviously is anyways!
but moved back to the USA recently i think.
that's weird, because i'm on the toilet right now and i do in fact have some things on show.
with all the fuzz on the vocals and everything else.
fuck that's a bit rough aye?
bit samey. but good. even iff the singer was totally fucking wired, it added to the effect.
they're almost certainly better an album on, though, right?
i'll check them out.
the joiners is fucking TINY! ??
i rather hope i can attend
you guys waaaay missed the boat.
:( <--- like that
is definitely in bold.
i wouldn't mind putting some beef up HER backside.
whatever they do, they wont beat it.
Ash and Idlewild are just bands from most DiS writers' teenage years and so only get half decent reviews because of the nostalgia factor.
then again i've always found Ash exceptionally boring.
what a man. i went to see them play in Winchester, it was incredibley good, this tour looks set to be sweeeet.
you're wrong. this song is boring boring boring. just so moderate and forgettable. has none of the traits that made bloc party famous and all of the traits of rubbish radio pop/indie/rock music.
as it's a single it would be foolish to discuss it or judge it within the cntext of the album. i don't wn the album so this just sounds like a dirge. NEXT.
, it's brilliant. really good progression, but still so raw and technical.
very well written article. i was thinking to myself 'this seems a bit good for Diver etc.'
good work thommo!
