REASONS TO BUY CD's AGAIN!
music scenes come and go.. sounds flittering in and out like skittering moths only to get burnt to a crisp too close to the spotlight and left to whither n die a smelly mess of drug addled bloated skeletons in a backlash hellhole.. we've all seen 'em come n go.. we've had grunge - effectively killed when Kurt Cobain spray painted his garden shed walls with his head.. further dragged into the abyss by neandering mumbling Pearl Jam albums that sound more like tired folk records than anything worth rebelling about.. we've had that whole wacky big beat electronica thing - effectively killed by every idiot movie trailer recycling the same 5 songs and fatboy slim repeating the same 5 words in all of his songs.. we've had the whole wacky nu-metal thing and well, I need only mention 2 words - Fred Durst to explain that one.. we've had all those idiotic bands that start with "THE".. (wot'ever the hell you call that scene) effectively killed by THE Vines and their rain man twitchy lead singer (we could also blame Renee Zellweger for being Jack Black's potential Yoko Ono.. and y'know.. the last album by The Strokes wuz freaking crap anywaze.. why do you care anymore?)
so.. what the hell are we left with that's new n fresh to be enthused about? I mean, there's no way in hell we're gonna start buying top40 albums.. seriously, every shite top40 rnb / pop / hiphop act is just Michael Jackson's THRILLER album regurgitated.. (coz hey, if it sold a squillion albums in the 80's.. and 80's was your golden age of pop.. why not bring it back from the dead.. and hit us over the head with it AGAIN and AGAIN instead of coming up with an original idea?) and I ain't gonna start listening to Good Charlotte or Linkin Park now..
well.. the latest scene I've been really diggin'.. is this wacky bunch of new bands from the UK and not so new bands from elsewhere doing the wacky thin-tie twitchy-skinny-idiots having an epilectic fit on stage psychedelic robot rock you can dance to type movement.. or wot'ever the fuck ya call it.. yeah.. jangling chords.. twitchy beats.. british style rock you can funk out too.. and dammit I can't get enough of it.. where all other music is starting to get real boring.. this shit sounds fresh.. sure, likely it's just been coughed up from a previous decade (they all are.. if you hunt far enough back).. but I like this shit.. hey, who'd think NME magazine would be right for a change.. get past all those crap overhyped bands like the LIBERTINES and you find some real cool shit here..
seriously, go hunt out these..
some of those names may be familiar.. some, might not be.. either way.. I recommend 'em all.. I'm also digging KINGS OF LEON and WOLF MOTHER lately too (coz hey, call me crazy.. but I dig that early 70's stoner bong rock vibe)
yup, reasons to buy CD's again.. yay!
