This may be one of the most terribly written articles I've ever seen slip through the proof-reading net! For a start, there's the number one cardinal sin - apostrophe abuse:
"two community member’s"
Then there's what seems like an absolute refusal to use commas, resulting in some of the clunkiest sentences I've had to suffer in a long time.
"Kath and fellow Castle Alice Glass were also previously accused of having nabbed artwork from artist Trevor Brown for the iconic battered Madonna image they’ve previously sold en masse to oikish adolescents."
But regardless of that...
Vocals: John Garcia (Kyuss)
Guitars: Matt Pike (Sleep/High On Fire etc)
Bass: Mike Dean (Corrosion of Conformity)
Drums: Dale Crover (Melvins)
Honourable mentions would go to Juan Montoya (Torche) on guitar and Dave Lombardo on drums.
Although Les Claypool takes things up a notch in the "woo look at me, I can make a bass sound slappy and shite" stakes.
Slap bass. It's just wrong.
that T in the Park is more about drinking vast amounts of Buckfast and fighting than seeing good bands.
My impression was that the other festivals were considerably more civilised, if a bit bland.
So yeah, moral of the story, don't base your impressions of Scotland just on the arseholes from T in the Park.
Negative creep is an awesome song. I remember covering it with the first band I played in when I was 13 or 14 :D
Just go on other websites instead? No?
It's bloody excellent!
Not quite as good as the first two albums, a bit more accessible and less outright sludgy, but still really damn good.
So eh, buy it, right!
I'm very jealous of people in the US though... first they tour with The Sword and Stinking Lizaveta, and then tour with Boris! Come to Britain dammit!
Went looking for this at lunchtime, but with little success :(
Desperately hoping they're gonna be playing over in the UK some time this year!
Watched this last night and had lots of very naughty dreams... :)
But surely they should be bowing down, honoured to be in the company of the wee purple soul man?
PRINCE > pretty much everything.
Fucking and Fists the wrong way round. Wasn't sure what was going on for a minute there.
Would be straight on the web and ordering up cheap taiwanese tele copies to keep on the passenger seats of their porsches.
Sounds like where Iron Man lives :D
"He was turned to steel, in a great magnetic field"
...alias Neil Lennon?
although I managed to completely overlook them for years.
Thrones, Earth, Harvey Milk, Battles and Black Sun... all mega good.
I'm tempted to take a wee jaunt down the M6 for this one :)
Just buy Reign In Blood and be done with it. Less haircuts there too.
First of all, there was Idlewild - they were my first step into the worlds of alt-rock and even punk (bearing in mind I first caught them around Hope Is Important). Listening to When I Argue I See Shapes will always bring back memories of being on a bus in Germany on a sunny school trip, and the first time I ever got drunk.
Secondly, there was Black Sabbath - I remember my mate telling me about some of the artwork in his Dad's vinyl collection, and listening to various old Sabbath Records just completely amazed that for the most part, I had only thought of them through Paranoid's perpetual inclusion on "Best of dad rock" compilations.
I think Sabbath were my biggest gateway to the stuff I'm more into now, stuff like SunnO))), Melvins, Boris etc.
Mind you, the more I think back, I think Rage Against The Machine might have been responsible for some of it - certainly challenging myself to learn all the songs from the first album when I first got a bass left an indellible stamp somewhere on my brain.

Glasvegas really are regarded as a bit of a joke up here in Glasgow.
And here was me misreading the title thinking you were gonna be dragging some indie bands round the Outer Hebrides.
Supporting Sunn0))) and Boris in London, and they were amazing. Now really looking forward to catching them in Glasgow, as well as having my first chance to check out the new Stereo :)
is quite interesting.
Probably because everyone up here is aware of how much of a joke they really are.
Bloody Great... YES!
Bänds with umlauts in their nämes.
More umlauts for 'Ö8!
it's the opportunity to read about stuff a little bit left of the mainstream that I can't really get the chance to read about in many other publications.
The fact that interviews and reviews etc. are usually pretty objective as well, and not just a big arse-kissing event about the bands' haircuts as happens in some of the larger magazines.
And it's not TOO "indier-than-thou" either, which is nice.
this will be a good album, and I'll be a very happy guy. Yeah.
"Radio 2 is the Daily Mail of the airwaves"
gutted + 1
just too easy!
Surely they must've seen that one coming a mile off?
April the 1st already is it?
Eagle-Eye Cherry? Come on...
it's still a bit of a shit name.
The mother was on crack?
