    @Legionreturns bonkers thread
    I think bonkers was about 4 pages back. We're now firmly in "it's the kindest thing to do" vet style territory ;) 
    Yeah, but at least we have established my bass playing is awesome.

    Apart from GNR - theirs is awesomer

    Well, you're better than that Freddie Poussin bloke in The Darkness, I'll give you that.  He's shit.

  • I've not heard this track before (I spent 2003 asleep, not sure if it's related), not sure who the band are but seems a fun little song...

    @dopesick - I deleted your post above.

    If you've got a problem with a thread or post, then flag it.  Adding  a post that is just a crude insult to the OP is not appropriate.

    Also, this isn't socialism...

    There's no problem with this thread at all.

    We have a right (in my country at least) to play favouritism...
    This is not about equality...

    This is about freedom.
    The freedom to say you don't like a band.
    The freedom to say why you don't like a band.

    You have to remember though those who question the thread..; It's Freedom over Equality.

    That's why we have this thread.

    The freedom to not like a band, and the freedom to talk about not liking a band.

    I am so sick of local (I mean it, it hurts, they're local) Local Dub Step people my age getting a break, local rap, but when you write a rock song, it's not going to get signed because rock labels are pop labels today.

    I'm from Thornton Heath, we're getting people get signed all over now, but not in rock.
    Whenever I try I get turned down.
    Why should I change my art when they can just sign me?
    You should have made this the OP instead of waiting five pages, then we would've known from the off what you were upset about.

    Concentrate on playing your guitar and enjoying your music, being signed comes with its own pressures you may not even be ready for.

    Are these the same dudes who get all possessive of their wives when you want to sleep with them? (the wives) if so they are just rotters huh.

    So basically you're upset because no-one is loaning you money to pursue an obsolete business model in the hope of getting a job that no longer exists!  



    The rock band entrepreneurial dream has had its day: get over it.

    This is about freedom.
    The freedom to say you don't like a band.
    The freedom to say why you don't like a band.
    True, but after the 847th time of saying it it tends to jar just a little bit.

    The other thing to do is look at the young musicians succeeding thanks to social media and youtube?

    You could also just go on x factor of you want to be a star?

    Well.... you could go on X Factor if you want to be on telly for a few weeks, have every shred of creativity beaten out of you, have a minor Christmas hit with a cover version, then be quietly dropped by Syco Records before ever releasing your album.  But everyone will have forgotten you by then anyway.

    Mmmmm.

    But then I'd get celebrity this, and I'm a celebrity that, and features in the mags, and maybe a spin off TV show on a satellite channel that no-one ever watches.

    15 minutes never lasted so long.


    Or was spent so wastefully.

    Yeah, true for some of them.  And I guess that is being a "star", by modern standards.

    Has to be a band? Cos I struggle to hate bands - artists on the other hand... Akon. Fuck me. That "Lonely" song with the god awful high pitch auto tuned voice one of the worst things I've ever heard!

    I think the only rap artists I've ever been able to get into is Eminem, and Goldie Lookin Chain (because they're just so damn funny!)

    I think it was already established that the Rolling Stones are the UK's answer to GnR.
    Axel came along strutting his stuff, and a couple of guys called Mick & Keith sitting in their flat stood up and said:

     "I bet if we tried really hard we could copy that exact style of music" 

    And thus.. The UK's answer to GnRs was born.

    True Story.

    Blimey I hadn't read this when we were talking about it in the indian @Bridgehouse @Alnico @Phil_aka_Pip !
    I used to hate Morrissey's voice and songs and by extension The Smiths but I occasionally get a bit nostalgic when I hear one now.  And I quite like Johnny Marr's more recent stuff.
    Anyway there were a few LOLs in this thread so cheers for that.

    I saw Crazyhead at the Town and Country Club in the early 90's. Wasn't their bass player called Pigman or something like that? Great band (but not as good as The Darkness)!
