The New Rock Revolution

1 Conversation

What a waste of space this new music "scene" is.
It makes me sick to the stomach to think that there is probably a really good band out there, doing something totally different from everyone but they won't get the press they need to get big because of all the tripe that is in the music press right now (especially NME).
Ok. I like a few of the bands
(The Vines, The Eighties Matchbox B-Line Disaster and The Libertines) but after that I just don't see the point. I also used to be obsessed with The Hives. They still are the best live band I've seen (and I've been to alot of good gigs) but it suddenly dawned on me that they mean NOTHING to me. They say NOTHING and mean NOTHING. What do they sing about? Not alot.
The Vines are kinda depressing in a way so they're good and 'angsty' for having a good scream to on a Sunday afternoon, The Eighties Matchbox B-Line Disaster are cool because the music is a little darker and they're a bit goth. The Libertines are good to skank to and they do tend to have a bit of lyrical content about life as rent boys and drug addicts which I find very interesting.
Okay, maybe we should respect The Strokes and The White Stripes who did kind of break this scene.
But non of it is original.
If you do have to listen to this kind of music (which I do), listen to the originals!
The Velvet Underground, Iggy Pop, New York Dolls, Television etc.
And I breathe.
Thank you for your time.
