:ban: :ban: :ban: :ban:

God does anyone actually like this abysmal wank? Every fuckin day at work were subjected to Starsailor, Coldplay, David Gray, The 'Thrills' (lol)!!! I FUCKIN HATE IT! I mean come on, this music is the 2003 equivalent of gash folk music like Peter, Paul & Mary. I dont see how any heterosexual male, can hold his head up with dignity and say he likes indie.


These 2 kiddies I work with were talkin about how they saw the Stereophonics on some tv show the other day, and commented on how camp the singer looks! What the fuck did they expect? A muscley skinhead covered in tatoos? Listen to the music you plebs!!!! THIS MUSIC SHOULD NOT BE ALLOWED!!!

:gun:



sorry for the rant, but if you had to put up with this shite everyday, you'd be feeling the pain too

Coldplay is music for people who live with their parents and still wet the bed. It's a load of moany crap :(

Not all indie music is shit though - I used to love it, I still listen to it a lot. I agree that a lot of it is shit nowadays but it's all about older bands like The Pixies (best band ever!), Dinosaur Jr, Nirvana, The Jesus & Mary Chain, Stone Roses etc. :rockposse


Most of the current trendy indie bands like The White Stripes, The Strokes etc. are just a rip off of older bands for a new generation :shake:

Couldnt agree more mate , I used to love the above bands and still occasionally dust off their CDs, but I wouldnt really call that indie, its more er....'alternative rock'....or something......


What I mean is, you can hardly compare J Maskis, Frank Black and Kurt to Liam Gallagher and Damon Albarn!!!

i think what i dislike the most about indie is the people who listen to it. :dynamite: indie kids around here have a tendency to take themselves too seriously.

Haha, reminds me of that "music for bedwetters" comment by Alan McGee (correct me if I'm wrong).

Confession - I was gonna get "Parachutes" (due to liking "Trouble") and "A Rush Of Blood To The Head," but more important things have come along...like CD's by Dom & Roland and Amon Tobin. :D

Gotta have my priorities straight, see?

imo it seems that things that get too commercial (and by that i mean they become a good way of making money) also seem to get worse at the same time...
nirvana, the pixies etc they were huge but i dont think they were created with that as their main focus...lots of bands today seem to be just following a formula in order to be successful so the depth too what they are doing just isnt there :rolleyes:

but setting that aside some indie is abysmal purely because they need to cheer up, sort their lives out and stop complaining. :drums:

Mainly, my problem is that the music and production is terribly simple and thus the weight falls on the lyrics, which I find to be juvenille at best. Plus, a lot of this new stuff (ColdPlay for one) is painfully slow (50-60 bpm).

Dude, I feel the same way about "nu-metal."

That album should be renamed "A Rush Of Wee To The Bed"
Congratulations, you might have just given me a song title! :D

Let's see...after stuffing our ears with tunes around 170 BPM, of course indie music is gonna sound like the sonic equivalent of a tortoise! :lol:

Well, I like slow hip-hop (70-80 bpm). I think the cut-off is around 70 for it to remain tolerable.

And speaking of Tortise, they are one of the great indie bands of all time, check them out on slsk.
