"metric, stars, feist and broken social scene" - all excellent bands! I quite like Emily Haines' work with the Soft Skeleton as well, although Metric are probably a better band.

Cadence Weapon is a brilliant Canadian rapper, especially with his collaborations with Final Fantasy (aka Owen Pallet, former strings arranger of the Arcade Fire).
One song I particularly like by Cadence is "Grim Fandago" where he samples the theme from Silent Hill, it's brilliant.

Not heard anything by Soft Skeleton, but I liked that Metric song which was pretty much a ripoff of The Clash :Eyesroll:.

Haha, much as I like to act all indie-cool and diss singles/champion album tracks I will admit that Monster Hospital is Metric's best song...

Alternative/Indy ; TOOL , Akhmed, Eagles of Death Metal, Iggy pop, Qeens of the Stone Age

I hate
Clubbing and it`s music that I dunno what to say about it I`ve heared there are House and otcher crap music as Techno rtc.
I dislike Hip Hop , Rap ,R&B

But I like regge (especially on our Woodstock festival)

These are one of my favorite bands and kinds of music , I am sorry if someone feel unhappy cause I said this things about techno but these are my thoughts and I hope nobody feel bad/sad/etc. because I don`t really care ...

The reason I hate Techno is simple , ppl in Poland that listen to Techno are most of all a rude ppl that are trying to Hunt metal listners, However in some cities there is a pece around those groups Smile.....
Techno listneers are in men cause a bunch of criminals , ex-prisoners and ppl with bad taste of Clothing and for sure they are the grout that makes everything worse for poland. I mean that ppl in otcher countries find poland as savage land of post comunist governament and post comunist ppl . In germany not so long ago in shops near border there was a card sayin "Wach for Polish ppl they Steal goods" or they just say jokes like " Go to poland , your car is already there"
............

I just miss the point did I :);p
Sorry for spam lads , but when I can to show my situation to otcher nations and I have some free time I just write this crap that you`ll say later W** is he sayin bout (saying about).....

So yeah I just saw Justice last night, serious "ohmygodamazing" factors in there.

They were brilliant, I advise anyone to see them if you have the chance. They're easily the dance act of the decade. I can see them being like Daft Punk soon enough.

Flux is quite a tune, even if it is just Bloc Party gone nu-rave, haha.

I'm not a massive fan of BP though, only like the obvious Helicopter/Banquet/Hunting For Witches, couldn't get into either album.

So yeah, Radiohead tickets are apparently going to be £42.50 here, it's a bit harsh.

Flux is brilliant in nightclubs- hopefully it is just a minor diversion because taking one of British music's best guitarists at the minute and subjecting him to simply a 5 note tremolo for a track is a crime! That and the NME was describing how the band aren't all happy with the move (but hey that's the mother fucking 'new' NME).

And have Radiohead announced locations/ dates yet?

The ticket price probably rules me out unless I win the lottery sometime soon but isn't too bad for what will probably be a whole day's worth of entertainment. I saw the last night of MOVE festival 2004 at Lancashire County Cricket Ground and it was incredible: James Maker (yuck!), The Beta Band, The Ordinary Boys (when they were content with being a ripoff of The Jam), New York Dolls and...Morrissey!. My favourite gig. I am trying to persuade my parents into loaning me money for a Bruce Springsteen ticket, because let's face it if you've not seen Bruce Springsteen live then you have no right to call yourself a man!!!!!!

Not a massive fan of Bloc Party, but they're okay.

Yeah, Flux is an indie club hit, but to be honest Bloc Party were always capable of that - look at Helicopter and their remix album, they're so incredibly danceable.

I bought a Radiohead ticket earlier on presale, for Manc.

OK enough of the English fellating each other:

I have deciding that I can now name which "genres" I tend to prefer my music to be from:

(this is a big accomplishment as I'm terrible with genres)

1. "Pop" (I like new stuff. ...)
2. "Classic Rock" (I like old stuff. ...)
3. "80's" (I love the 80's hehe)


On hiatus. Blame holloway.

Well, it wasn't quite a DJ set - that sort of implies that they'd just play some tunes from other bands rather than their own songs. Although it was also a DJ set insofar that they mixed their own pre-recorded tracks live.

It was pretty massive either way! CSS were pretty bad afterwards, in comparison.

I saw CSS and Justice on Friday. Justice were excellent, not so impressed by CSS. Call me crazy but I like my live music to be different than simply listening to the album.

Not familiar with either group (well sure I've heard some CSS and wasn't impressed at all), but I completely agree with you on that point. A concert should be a unique experience, not merely a recycled setlist of stuff played note for note as recorded on the CD. Lou Reed seems to consciously reinvent songs when he's playing on tour (I don't just mean 'oh hai let's play this sng acousatically), so even if you've heard a song you love a hundred times, it can completely blow you away in a way you've never have imagined.

I've only been once, last Halloween. Wasn't that keen. If you aren't already wrecked when you get there (the bar is impregnable), and if you don't do drugs, it's pretty shit.

Crap, I haven't bought the Battles album yet; I really should when I have...umm..money. Tonto is incredible: if Yes were actually a bunch of cyborgs from 2300 I think this is the sort of music they might produce. Well, if the rest of Yes were anyway, I'm already pretty convinced Steve Howe isn't human.

Another "the" band I'm listening to now, The Enemy. It's more catchy indie stuff.

Also, I listen to You Only Live Once by The Strokes ad nauseum. The song was going around my head for about 6 months but I couldn't remember who it was by, nor could I remember any of the lyrics so it was impossible to look it up. I had a brain wave about 3 months in that it was by the Strokes, so I listened to the album of theirs I had but it was the wrong bloody one.

Now I'll never forget again.

At the moment, I'm listening to:

The whole of 'Renaissance: Future Club Classics'. AWESOME album, 3 CDs of absolute tunes. Trust me, this is not your standard club album full of songs that have been rinsed for months, every song is a mix from Renaissance, and every mix is top notch. Well worth a listen.

They'll probably be big over here in 2008 cos they're pretty fucking catchy I must say (I had 'Great DJ' by them in my head all day today...and I haven't heard it in weeks!)

I'm not so hot personally on the last three genres (though I'm sure someone will convert me to Jazz at some stage, I'd best brace myself...) but Wintersun is a pretty good start. What a wonderful album!

And also Holloway, I never spotted that comment about the Enemy ripping off the Jam. My guess is that we probably have another Ordinary Boys on our hands, i.e. relatively strong first album that rips off the Jam, followed by increasingly futile attempts to win commercial success whilst destroying bit by bit any ounce of credibility that they might possess. The Strokes did it too though, minus the Jam ripping off.

Wow, you actually heard that album? I think it's absolutely amazing. What i find even more amazing is how the majority of the album is in 3/4 time signatures.
