Re: Is indiepop racist?

Re: Is indiepop racist?

I have never witnessed what I consider to be discriminatory behaviour amongst the people who attend gigs in this genre and am confident that it's less prevalent than in wider society , but this is purely anecdotal. Also, the bolded doesn't matter. Who cares if it happens amongst our friends less th...

Re: Is indiepop racist?

I'm not sure it's statistically valid to draw this conclusion based purely on the discrepancy in ethnicities between indiepop fans and the general population. You could argue that it's more racist to pose the question, as it overlooks every other factor that may be correlated with whether or not a p...

Re: Leicester Indiepop Alldayer 2014, 22nd March

Bands were good, Simon is a good bloke, managed a game of pool amongst dozens of guitars. Can't ask for more than that but did get more than that! Thanks all.

Re: Mascot Fight

Sean, I'm sick of this- you're rarely on here except to post about your band.

I know that ***NEW ALBUM NOW ON SPOTIFY: http://open.spotify.com/album/7DCnJKNVf2hpoK2DZ3qIbe*** but you're getting a bad rep.

I'm going to the Albert Hall, which I hope is named after Mr. Albert Hall or I'm less interested.

Re: 08/06 - Crackle!Fuzz!Pop! All Dayer - Power Lunches - LD

We (Themakingof) might actually change our name as none of us have ever liked it.

More pertinently, that's a cracking line-up. Looking forward to it very much!

Re: The Deirdres!

Plans & Apologies single launch. The other three bands supported and Check This Pecker did live VJ stuff. I turned around at one point whilst playing and saw a projection of Donkey Kong Jr spinning round, as if skidding on a banana skin. Nice.
