Re: Next Gig you're going to...

Beck is doing ONE UK show this year (outside festivals) and he picked a location 40 minutes from me, in a decent venue. Got my tickets, thank you very much! :mrgreen:

Re: They're kind of pathetic

Reni is definitely a bit of an enigma. I remember that in the early days he was quoted as saying that for the band he aspired to 'the integrity of Echo and the Bunnymen and the bank account of Wham!'. He seemed to have no problems with bands that made it big (like Van Halen or U2) while the others l...

Re: They're kind of pathetic

As others have noted, I was merely repeating was Shaun Ryder said at the time. Which Ian acknowledged with a wink. No cattiness at all. I'd like to add that I don't have this romantic idealistic view of the Roses that some people have. I don't care why they got back together. My personal opinion is ...

Re: What are you listening to right now?

I haven't listened to much new music lately... well, at least not by new people, though I do listen to new albums by artists I already know (Beck, St Vincent, First Aid Kits, Father John Misty...). But apart from that, I've been re-discovering old favourites. One of the perks of getting older is you...

Re: They're kind of pathetic

I seen the one with Alex James, basically saying the record company wanted them to have a baggy image which was complete with their drummer mimicking Reni on their video. But yeah the next album the record company man basically told albarn his material wasn't good enough and then he came back with ...

Re: They're kind of pathetic

Tangential to this... has anyone else seen the last episode of "Hits, Hype & Hustle: An Insider's Guide to the Music Business" on BBC4? It was all about the 'reunion'. No Roses in the programme but plenty other bands speak about their experience, their motivations to reunite or not reunite, those wh...

Re: What are you listening to right now?

Mozart eh? Wow in the total absence of anything new from the Roses camp, we're casting our nets quite far and wide! I was listening to Mozart before the Roses came on the scene... Blame it on Milos Forman ;) Enjoying First Aid Kit's new album. They are the kind of band that is brilliant at what the...
