am i out of touch here..?
why is everyone talking about junior senior (obviously not on this website...until now)? are they/ is he any good? should i go see them/him on may 9th?
i lOve them lol....i have an article in Q about them if u wanna read? i really like the poppyness of it....it pure pop tack with a funky beat
oh my goodness hehe.....it's so good! the vid is pants tho lol, but they're a silly danish pop duet....it's a comedy song, i like it,
but then we all know i have no music taste
no, the videos quality!
i like the song, its on every radio station (including xfm) imaginable, every music tv station and the albums getting great reviews - apparrently its different to the single, and a bit like the avalanches
i haven't been convinced so far...
yes its everywhere - and i've been dancing to it all last week!!
but until recently (i.e i just read this thread then went and search for it), didnt know the name of it!!!
its soo quality!!!!!!
jsut kazzad it!!! - wicked!!!
sam, dont think its your thing, could be wrong tho!!!
its good good good!!

[Edited on 30/3/2003 by dunnerz]
i don't think it's sam's cup o tea either. i put it on the RED playlist ages and ages ago and it's only just becoming big!
you put it on the RED playlist? you should be ashamed of yourself!!!
stargirl - wheres your sense of fun???
obviously not with junior senior. funny that.
it got taken off the red playlist before release though, i got it back on there!!! and i'm not ashamed of it!!
good for you tom. i'm sure you will be rewarded in heaven.
get off your high horse mirella
That song is f*cking annoying, i hate the whole concept but the song is so catchy and that makes it so annoying!! And the video is a poor mans white stripes!!
ok. i downloaded it. and y'know, it's alright. i hadn't heard it before... is that weird? so anyway, i can see the avalanches comparisons. i think i will go to see them, it was going to part of a brief trip to cardiff to visit my friend...the mooney suzuki are playing the next night.
aww it'll be a fun night sam! let us know what they're like...it's hard to judge on one song!
do you like the avalanches - i listened to the album at my mates house - it really liked it, might go and purchase it
the avalanches are cool i really like
shake your coconuts
this band get better!!!!!
...and rythm bandits
gonna go buy the album tommorw - tis good!!
expensive day tommorw
glaso tickets on sale!!
oh yeah.....i can't afford one yet. not even sure if i'll be in the country...
It's a good pop song, I'd much rather something like that was in the charts than pop idol wank.
Aw, people aren't blindly following Mirella, she's upset now
There's an icon for that, you know
i don't use them.
Just bought the album - how wicked!!!!
really really good - seriuosly - its all dancy, but its not all poppy stuff.
would recommend it
Move your feet video
james recommends it... run from it.
its better than half the shi*te u like!!!!
james, do you even know what i like?
well, i'm judging my the fact i only knew 2 songs from the set u and sam played (and both of those were his i think) - i assumed u played the
stuff that you liked ?????? - and well, it was quite, errr, well, boring!!!
[dont get too hyped up - im only joking with ya!!! - and i did only say half]
That's it James! Don't take any sh1t!
i may have to borrow that from you james!
right. so that means i only like the equivalent of 45 minutes worth of music. being as that's how long our set was, and consequently you're aware of half the stuff i like. or is this maths too above your oasis-loving, lager-swilling intellect? *cough* in the loosest sense of the word "intellect"...
A little less nastiness please **stargirl**...
Not all the people who like oasis are stella swigging monkeys im sure, but anyway, I liked the video to that move your feet. It reminds me of animations I made in deluxe paint 3 on the amiga. ahh
sorry, but its a term
its not really ment to be taken literally
or cant your alchohol free twee intellect work that out?
sorree, i forgot that not drinking damages your brain cells.
well obviuosly if you forgot, then not drinking cant be doing u much good !!
you're right, you shouldn't get involved.
spade hole dig
david sneddon, tatu, christina aguilera, gareth gates all very good acts? i think not.
Two young girls kissing is always a good act in my opinion. hmm. I can now watch it in public without fear of prejudice. What do I mean, of course it is about the 'music'
and they aRe richer than us......hehe
in life there are facts and opinions. many would argue that music is a matter of taste, therefore opinion. but those people would be missing the fundemental fact that good music has always, and this includes in pre-pop music years/eras/epochs, relied on talent, technical accuracy and ability and, possibly most importantly, originality. therefore, you're all wrong... so very wrong... and that's fact, not opinion.
well i cErtainly feel enlightened now...thanx
*pokes out tongue*
sticking your tongue out is very rude......did u're mother never tell you that girl
[Edited on 1-4-2003 by mojo]
she will learn to like i too......wait til she leaves uni hehe......she may even come dancing too......*shock horror*
no. she won't. and nothing i listen to is shambolic. what did you have in mind when you said that?
Lots of stuff. Moldy Peaches aren't technically good at all, Ballboy and stuart murdoch can't sing, etc etc therefore by your definition this makes them bad because they're not technically accurate.
moldy peaches are original. stuart murdoch can sing! he has an excellent vocal range.
yeah, just a shame he can't hit the note.
Original doesn't mean good. If someone farts in a bucket, records it and sells it, it doesn't make it good. The mistake people make with stuff like Autechre and Aphex twin- no one else is doing it so it must be good- no, it's b*llocks.
"Originality consists of returning to the origin" - Antoni Gaudi
some aphex isn't that bad. i like gaudi too
no, but then beethoven didn't become a musical legend for copying mozart.
Aphex Twin is just taking the piss. Examples? On his 'new' remix record some of the 'remixes' are just squiggles he had lying around. He couldn't be arsed to remix, so when the courier came round he just gave them a random tape. Cue lots of beard scratching "Hmm, yes I love what you've done to it, complete opposite to what it was yadd yadda yadda"
quite randomly a minidisc copy of the junior senior album landed on my doorstep today. and it's great. hooray! it sounds like a cross between primal scream and aqua. no, really.
and you're all wrong. about everything.
i want the album...... *sigh*

music isn't all about talent technical ability and such muso wotnot
its about entertainment and dancing and fun (and maybe helping to spread a message but not al the time)

Spicy chicken is most scrumpcious.
well i was lazy if you want the full lyrics to Get up and Go
then go to
if you can be asked
i would never argue about spicy chicken flavour tom! i don't like chicken ever!
umm i hate to be annoying but theres the point
sometimes i get the impression that you think everyone who disagrees with you is wrong, and all music you don't like is crap
no offense but it seems like a very weird way to veiw the world, if everybody likes a piece of music and enjoys dancing to it, then there must be something good about it
music is for having good clean fun
your just jealous coz you can't dance .... go on admit it hehe
[Edited on 3-4-2003 by John]
all music you don't like is crap
*nods* of course! that's why i don't like it!!
it seems like a very weird way to veiw the world,
so it would make sense to say "yeah, it's amazing, but i still hate it!"????
if everybody likes a piece of music and enjoys dancing to it, then there must be something good about it
there is no piece of music that EVERYONE likes... and if you hadn't noticed, the majority of people who buy music in this country like gareth gates and christina aguilara... so, according to you, that mUst be good.
It's actually possible to appriciate music even if it's not to your taste.
I think I have the best taste, but then i would- it's taken me ages to build up a big collection of music that's personal to me and my style. But I can still be objective- if I like something that i know isn't really very good, I can tell. Similarly if I don't like something that people I know do like, I can tell if it is good or not, even though it's not to my own specific taste.
[Edited on 3-4-2003 by Matt Paradise]
yes it probly is, i don't like the money making aspest of it and some of the lack of ethics shown by parts of the music industry but i have
nothhing against it in terms of the style of music
just because i personallydon't like a style of music it does not make it crap
as i've said before if gareth gates did everything for charity and spoke out on worthy causes on the odd occaision then i wouldn't have a problem with it, its just the money spinning of pop that i don't like
pop when its done well is some of the best music ever, just look at the smiths
if i hear good music i like it. if i hear bad music i don't like it. i don't say "ooh, it's really good
but i don't like it" because that's so male and illogical.
i don't think that where the money goes affects how good the music is.
yes. obviously matt. you're so right all the time. i forgot i can't have an opinion if it doesn't match yours.
no matter how much sense it makes. and that for voicing it if it doesn't correlate with yours i'm closed-minded. thank you for reminding
[Edited on 3-4-2003 by **stargirl**]
I dunno. i always thought that it was possible to listen to something and think 'ok so i don't really dig that track/album/whatever but i
can appreciate where they're coming from & some people might like it'. it might be sh*te to one person but that may not necessarily make
it universally sh*te... might just be me though, fair enough if that's the case.
Maybe i've completely missed the point. and i have little doubt that this will become apparent because (1) either there are too many shades of grey or (2) i haven't taken into account protestations of it not being 'hardcore' enough or whatever or (3) it will get ripped to pieces or (4) i'll be invited to partake in a suicide pact.
i really need to go back to bed.

i agree you can think "some people might like it" but that isn't the same as thinking it's good. it's just recognising that some people like stuff that isn't too great.
it might be sh*te to one person but that may not necessarily make it universally sh*te...
it's shiite or it's not shiite. some people may like shiite stuff, but it doesn't alter the fact it's rubbish.
oh well. i tried. my prediction was right though, although i did set myself up for it really.
i'll go back to sitting on the fence again
that's okee greggy. i would just like to know who you think "i don't like it but it IS really good" about.
i don't know, 'cos i don't remember saying that anywhere... -
and that's all i'm gonna say.
feel free to tear it to pieces, if you think it's weak then fair enough and it probably is, but that's the way of it. i can't construct arguments like people like the womb can so it's not too difficult to go through each sentence and analyse the flaws in it (which i have no problem with btw, full credit to anyone who is able to do that). someone else can finish it up if they wish.
because no-one says it!! everyone makes out they're so open-minded, instead of admitting that none of us say "it's really good but i don't like it" because either we think it's good and like it, or think it's not good and don't like it. and i'd love to know what music people say "it's really good but i don't like it" about.
no you were right greg, mirella's reply is just stupid
of course you can look at the music someone else likes and say, 'thats boring to me' , 'i can't dance to it' , 'it hurts my ears' etc but you can't say its shite just because it doesn't fit your taste, thats just silly
i mean i'm not a big fan of the music of south american tribal indians or church music or bhuddist chanting but i can't say its shite because i don't like it can I.
but if you think something is good then you'll like it!!! it doesn't matter what genre it is!! i don't understand this whole idea of thinking something is good but not liking it? can someone PLEASE explain it to me...
i think bhuddist chanting is good, but i don't enjoy it
its easy when you think about it
just drop the idea that you must undoubtedly be right in your approach to life, consider all the angles and it comes naturally
oh my god i sound liek a 50's disney film character or something...
that doesn't make sense!! if you think it is good you must like it. if you think it is good you must like the sound of it. you can't like the sound of something you think isn't good. and if you like the sound of it you like listening to it. and if you like listening to it you like it. it makes perfect sense!!
mirella thers a big difference in saying, 'i personally prefer the styyle type of music to another' or 'i like this music'
to saying 'i hate that music', 'everyone elses taste is shite' , which is basically what you are implying
*busts some kick-bottom hardcore move*
Oh for goodness sake. Who cares? Its music, not politics. There is no right or wrong. THATS THE WHOLE POINT. What happened to music being the great leveller? According to this board, it has done nothing but divide. Not so long ago, poor old mojo 'let it slip' that she liked the lighthouse family, and ever since has been swamped under a deluge of snobbery which the silly sausage has taken to heart, and is constantly making reference to the fact that she is not qualified to have an opinion, and that her music taste is somehow inferior to everybody elses. How can this be true? I tell you now jojo - never again should you apologise for your music tastes. You are perfectly justified to like whatever you do, and nobody should tell you different. I think the Lighthouse family are rubbish, but thats not because I know something you dont, it's because by some cosmic mystery of the universe it just doesnt blow my hair back. We should REVEL in the fact that Jojo likes the Lighthouse family, because she has come to this conclusion devoid of anything apart from what matters - she likes it. I thought that the reason you all came on this forum is to celebrate a shared passion for music, not to pick at each other about irrelevant bollocks.
*thinks tom has a point and she maybe has forgotten about the point of the forum* but john's still wrong that its sole purpose is entertainment not art.
Sweet, yet wrong.
Your all crazy crazy people. But the award for worst post in the thread I think goes to James for thinking that the popularity of Oasis was a good
defense for why his music taste is somehow superior to Mirella's. How I laughed.
Everyone listen to Tom. Tom's the man.
*sits back and waits for a backlash*
*walks away, slowly and resignedly*
i wanna dance
Is art not a form of entertainment?
well sort of, but inthink here mirella means it should only be for those who can 'appreciate good art' (whatever that is), whereas i just
beleive whatever music a person happens to enjoy and have fun to is good
[Edited on 3-4-2003 by xjohnx]
Different people appreicate music for different reasons. It's not a science (in most ways anyway) so there is no right or wrong. Oasis are still never going to posess any soul though.
I didnt know mojo liked the lighthouse family !!
Are they still going?
>i'd love to know what music people say "it's really good but i don't like it" about.
I say that all the time and it's almost always because of the voice that I may think something's really good but can't enjoy it, just because I don't like the singer's voice. I would've enjoyed it, with no singing, or a different singer, and so can appreciate that the track is very good, even though I don't like it, because of the singing.
i'd just like to thank everyone who participated in this discussion - it has amused me no end.
jazzy's special mentions have to go to to....
john- for having a fair point
matt - for being funny
mirella - for being on a very high horse - careful now, don't fall off!!!
tom - for being the voice of sense
james, sam and jojo - for being right about junior senior
na its ok, mirellas just joking about only liking music coz 'its art',
guess who likes aqua and uses it as a ring tone
i think you just lost a whole load of indie scene points mirella hahahahahaha
mind you i quite like one or two aqua songs too
[Edited on 4-4-2003 by xjohnx]
john, i don't want to be indie! when will you learn?!
simon is right for mentioning soul. if there's no soul there's no point.
carl, if you say "it's good but i don't like the singer" then you're not saying it's good at all... because you don't like the singer - obviously!
gareth, what high horse? second to tom, i am the voice of reason...
>carl, if you say "it's good but i don't like the singer" then you're not saying it's good at all... because you
don't like the singer - obviously!
Yes I am, I'm saying the melody, beat, everything else about the tune is really good, and I like all those parts, but I don't think the singing's good, and so don't like the whole tune overall. Simple case of 'nice record shame about the singing.' I can't think of any other way to explain it really, except that I don't think it's a black and white case of like the whole record or don't like it, as you seem to be arguing.
I can think of some records where I really can't get enough of the breakdown, about 30 secs, but hate the rest of the record, about 6-7 mins. Maybe I'm not appreciating the art or the soul but I couldn't give a sh1t as I'm not sure I really even know what art or soul is.
okee. in a situation where you "like the song but don't like the vocals", does the song make you feel anything? melencholy, energy, physical warmth?
Sometimes it does, yes all the feelings you describe. At other times though, I just get a kind of infectious desire to hear a song or a part of it yet
it doesn't provoke any of the identifiable emotions you speak of. I just know I like the song, and have to hear it again.
What point were you leading on to?
it's possible to really like a song but think the lyrics suck too.
Urgh, John you've just written a reply in girly pink!
well it felt good, wouldn't make a habit of it mind, you should try it
go tom! He da man!
I used to write in pink on ICQ and MSN all the time a few years ago. The only reason I did it was beause it always pissed off all the "ladish" people who would often remark such things as "Why are you writing in a giiiirl's colour?!!". I was even called a "poof" on the odd occasion because of it. Quite amusing really!
And is your purchasing of women's clothes from charity shops part of this rebellion, Simon?
In no way did i ever imply that indie was inferior to punk in terms of musical style
You can define someone elses taste for sure, but you can't judge it and say its crap purely on aesthetic quality, opinion and taste
do you see what i'm gettin at now?
man, what a bunch of muso snobs you all are (few expections)
woo! go james!
everybody (well i'd say expect jazzy, tom and jojo)
seems like you all fall into either the snob, muso or muso snob catagory!!!
(yes i know i can be a little bit myself) - but recently its got really bad and really anal!!!
how the feck am i a snob or a muso?
i wrote a big reply to this. but deleted it because it made me sound like a muso snob which kind of defeated my argument.
anyway, hooray for muso snobs. if not for us we would be stuck in discussions about oasis all day. instead we get to discuss the finer points of 80s albums. i for one have been thoroughly educated about the former professions of henry rollins. now, if i ever meet him i shall ask his opinions on ice cream.
i'm going to give a prize to the person who can come up with the best henry rollins/black flag/ ice cream related joke.
If you have specific issues then feel free to raise them but don't throw around vague comments like calling everyone snobs.
By not naming names you're just pissing everyone off by calling everyone snobs.
another example of what i mean
i didnt say everyone was a snob - i said there were expections!!!
not everyone is being a snob all of the time......i'm just trying to say (me included) that we are all being a bit arrogant and aggresive towards each other - and not listening and respeciting what each other has to say about anything - and if we cant find a resonable excuse, we just insult the other person (again, me included).
....if you really want names.........
I definitely see where you're coming from James, but I think Simon has a point...
i just dont want to start a war of words!!!
(The last post didn't appear until after I did mine, in case you were wondering...)
>....if you really want names.........
Well come on then, stop teasing and bring them on. I wanna see this thing kick off. ;-)
good covering xjohnx: that was close!
But I don't know how long I can hold back mirella so run boy run! Run as fast as ur little hardcore legs can carry you, phone emo headquarters, they'll sort u out with a safehouse.
xthe edam is strandedx
i'd love the terms "muso" "snob" and "muso snob" to be defined by james...
muso snob = mirella and simon!!
can give u "my" dictionary definition if you want??
there u go!!
and john was right ealier - i used the word snob, where i didnt actually mean it - but couldnt think of a better word!!
wOw what has this turned into in my absence!
just wanna say a few things...
*i do not really like the lighthouse family (that one comment has been twisted and bent out of shape ) for those that missed the comment i think i said that i had a couple of their mp3's on my 'commercial mix' on my pc.....along with other 'happy' stuff, like dido and kylie
*thankyou Tom for being nice (i still see myself as having little opinion, but that's cos i've not heard of any of these random bands so i have no comment)
*if u wanna write in pink go for it
*get off ur high horses the lot of you
*appreciate that we all have different tastes and just cos u don't like someone's music.....u shuld be able to appreciate and understand that they like it and so be nice
*junior senior are great
that's my 2 pence worth for now......think i'll go eat!
aww jojo don't be a pop apologist, just listen to the music that makes you happy
dido has a few good songs
eating is good also...goes off in search of food
i want to be a muso snob.
i know way more about music than anyone (i just refuse to share it with you commoners.)
does that qualify me?
i vouch for the fact that sam knows more about music than anyone ever.
[Edited on 10-4-2003 by jazzy]
music or bands?
bands probably. my knowledge of 'music' is little more than grade 4 piano and a C in GCSE music.
Well you you beat my grade 3
well, then you punks can bring it all on...
i only did one percussion grade: 5, because i needed it to apply for music a-level (and grade 3 piano when i was 10)
like percussion is a 'real' instrument or something.
lol... i could have done music a-level without having done any grade, although I can play piano a bit and drums a little bit i'm completely
ungraded. Mind you, i probably would have failed it, so i did music technology instead. How I miss pissing around on keyboards for five hours a
this uni needs a recording studio
all of the above was *really* random...
i'll "blow my own trumpet"
grade 4 theory
grade 5 trumpet (but never took grade 8, because i never bothered with grade 5 thoery!)
grade 4 piano
but more importantly
played in youth orchestra for 10 years - 4 of which as lead/solo trumpet
played in a semi-pro big band for 2 years before coming to uni
not that i think that it means i know any more than any of you - and i think music grades are pants - the only thing there good for is getting kids something aim for - or proof to their parents that they are doing something with thier instruments - i think if you can either play an instument and got talent, or you havnt (granted there are different levels of how much talent you have) - you can reach any grade u want, with enough deication and pracitce
- hehee - you can tell im trying to do work - otherwise i wouldnt have written so much!
Ok, this thread is a little old now so I can't remember everything I wrote but as far as I can see it is a Junoir Senior debate. Now having never
heard anything by Junior Senior and having absolutely no idea who they are I very much doubt I at any point dissed them. Feel free to prove me wrong.
As for the rest of your points, it just seems that you don't want me to express an opinion on any music that I don't like. If I say something negative about a band that you like then so what? It's just my opinion. I'm sure you don't like plenty of music that I like.
I don't really think that grades prove much about musical talent. I don't know whether the higher grades are much different but for the lower grades that I took it was just a case of knowing how to play scales (you didn't even have to know why the scale you were playing were played like that), knowing a few arpegios and playing a song that you had been practicing for weeks so you didn't really even need the music infront of you. Having said that, I'm not claiming to be very musically talented.
what did noel gallagher say about music grades
i remember it had the phrase 'and now we're the biggest (insert expletive here) band in the world' in it
none should care mind
[Edited on 13-4-2003 by xjohnx]
I dunno about talent, that's a matter of opinion (and I don't really want to regurgitate old arguments), but Paul McCartney couldn't
(and as far as I know, still is unable to) read music at all, but he's a reasonably accomplished multi-instumentalist (he played all the
instuments on his first solo LP).
I like that kind of self-sufficiency. Just think how much money you'd save on session musician fees if you just learned to play it all yourself
I've got no idea what John is going on about...
If you can sing and play guitar then it would be pretty easy to play bass to a reasonable level. The only other thing you've then got to learn in order to make a basic record is the drums. I've never played the drums myself but I can't imagine it would take too long to pick up the basics.
i was joking, noel randomly mocks his music teachers for no aparent reason, he didn't get a grade four or something. To be honest i wasn't
really listening to a word he was saying
its generally just rampant egotism
you need no musical talent to be a great band, just look at punk.
and eric clapton is a git anyhow
peace and love
It depends whether you define musical talent as the technical ability to play an instrument or the ability to pen a nifty pop tune. I would probably
say it lies somewhere inbetween the two.
hmm...if Noel donated a penny for everytime he's made some reference to Oasis being "the biggest fucking band in the world" then he would have probably paid off all third world debt by now...
[Edited on 13-4-2003 by Simon Dyson]
its harder towrite a really good pop tune, think about it
more people write the stuff so it takes more to stand out
musical talent and artyness are overated
I only said pick up the basics, not be a pro! I've spoken to people who said they picked up the basics really quickly, so I guess it can be done. I'm not saying I necessarily could though, coordination has never been my strongest attribute
thats my problem too!!!
Hopefully Mirella will be bringing up her drumkit next year so she can teach me. Should be fun!
simon, you can pick up the basics really easily, but you can also make a great song sound shite with bad drumming. or you can make an average song sound great. people underrate drumming. and yes sam, i think you'll find percussion IS a real instrument, and requires a lot more versatility than anything else. james, i was principle percussionist in my county orchestra.
this is true, bad drumming does stick out like a sore thumb, you can usually get away with the old 'fat finger' syndrome on a keyboard
(hell, i've done it enough times ) but one or two dodgy beats out of time
and it shows. I wish I'd carried on playing the drums. Which is why I'm gonna learn bass instead. Great logic.
Perhaps it's like most musical things: easy to learn, difficult to master...

whats the difference between a drummer and a drum machine?
you only need to punch info into a drum machine once
How many drummers does it take to change a lightbulb?
Just one, so long as the roadie gets the ladder, sets it up and puts the bulb in the socket for him.
How can you tell when a drummer's at the door?
He doesn't know when to come in
How can you tell when the drum riser is level?
Drool comes out of both sides of the drummer's mouth.
What do you call a drummer that breaks up with his girlfriend?
How many drummers does it take to change a light bulb?

To translate what the drummer says.
A new customer walks into the new store on the block that sells brains. There are three glass cases, each containing a nice wet quivering grey brain. The first one says "Astrophysicist", and it costs $10. The second says "Avon Salesman" and costs $1000. The third says "Drummer" and costs $10,000. The customer is confused, and questions the salesperson.
"I don't get it...why would I want a drummer's brain for $10,000 when I can get an astrophysicists' for $10?".
The salesman replies, "Because it's never been used."

>people underrate drumming.
Yeah, definitely it is underrated in indie music, and under-used. If I was a drummer, I wouldn't want to be one for an indie band.
er. that drumming thing was a joke. i just thought it would start a nice little argument. seems i was right.

i'm trying desperately to remember the drumming terminolgy my friend taught me. 'something triplets'. hmmm, what was it?
