    I was at the front with the nanas :cool:
     
  4. HABA87

    HABA87 Winger

    A bit of both.
    They've been out a fair bit leading up to Christmas and over the holidays so the lasses have been round a fair bit, "ooh try this, ooh I;ve brought this round".
    Then when they go out there's half empty glasses left for me to mine sweep.
    Not because I like gin - I was actually pretty minging off it years back so never touched it for ages - but I like the early stages of drunkenness and hate booze going to waste. :oops:

    Edit - Ginsters :lol::lol::lol::lol::lol:

    Fair enough marra, I didnt think you woudl tbh, but at least you havent just listened once and binned them. I remember listening to a few singles and thinking "fucks people like these for?" then one evening I had Boxer playing, on repeat, and it just clicked. Same with Joy Division. Never got the fuss either. Now two of my favourite bands (on the flip side some of the bands I used to love have now been left on the shelf).

    Im sure you have found even with a fave of yours Dylan, that some records/songs that didnt initially grab you very much have crept up on the rails and you now love?

    Same here. I just can't see anything there.

    I would describe it as a droning dirge with blinking lights.

    Which is fine. Doesnt mean those that do like them are just pretending. If you name a band you like, and I dont, are you pretending to like them or am I pretending not to like them?

    I only get to listen to albums in the car and I'm only in the car for about 20 minutes at a time. I probably found listening to music easier when I was house sharing and there were different peoples tastes flying in. Very rarely get to listen to any new artists now. I;d posted recently about never having heard of some recent festival headliners. :neutral:
    My fault, I suppose, as I could always go out of my way. Life gets in the way sometimes though.

    ah you really need to be there imho, saw them in a really small venue in Dublin last year and they were superb, the energy he brings to the stage is incredible

    Correct - but there were others that grabbed me beforehand. Despite what a few people on here seem to think, Dylan at least has a change of pace.

    I don't think you're pretending to like them. I think that they're the kind of band that people attach themselves to in order to appear cool or informed.
