Re: non-white members of indiepop bands

i shall repeat 'of course, in the interests of consistency I should state that I do not believe that this makes indiepop racist or anything, as to even focus on the issue of race when it is irrelevant would in itself be a bit racist' REDEEM myself?! for what? thinking that charts and graphs of genit...

race and indiepop

seriously though, it was only an off-hand comment in the feminism thread, but are there any members of indiepop style bands who aren't white? It's been nagging at the back of my head since I said it. I suppose we could count Black Kids. They are a bit indiepop. Or even the very early stone roses. of...

Re: Belle and Sebastian

hi shaun! it's mike how much money do you envisage belle and sebastian actually having though? i'm sure they aren't short for fag money or whatever but making a film costs mad money, even a modestly budgeted one! Most bands, even famous ones, are probably absolutely as skint as fuck for almost their...

Re: Belle and Sebastian

if it's shite, we can always just pretend that it isn't and say it is really good. no one else cares anyway so we kind of get to create our own reality here.

i'm hoping for like ' a hard day's night', the madcap adventures of the scottish inide boys and the girls who rock their world.

Re: gender equality and indiepop

given that most of the bands in indiepop are probably listening to or trying to emulate the great girls groups of the 60's as at least one obvious influence, it pretty much stands to reason...

Re: Belle and Sebastian

a few weeks before bowlie 2 was announced I went on the website where you can ask them questions and asked if they would do bowlie again for the people who missed it. and they were all like 'no, no, nope, can't go back'... but it was probably just a coincidence, like stuart being in trainspotting. a...

Re: gender equality and indiepop

since this thread is derailed to death, let's switch up. do you think there are enough indiepoppers in britain to support a dating site? because i bet half of the single indiepoppers, especially the boys, often find themselves talking to girls and thinking 'well, you're fit, but do you know anything...

Re: gender equality and indiepop

no, I actually agree... but i just feel that of all the music scenes, indiepop is the one that doesn't need any undue focus on politics. it's surely the least sexist. there are MILES more girls in indiepop than in a lot of other genres like hip hop or metal or happy hardcore or whatever, and probabl...

Re: The Whatevers

so yeah, there's going to be a retrospective best of The Whatevers on Bristol based indie label Local Underground, hopefully sometime around September... it's called 'Lo-Fi Infidelity'...and to convince you to part with the pennies, it isn't just the same old stuff you've already downloaded or bough...

Re: gender equality and indiepop

yes, as well as girls, pop music and football, i do also like science and space and stuff like that. not a lot of people kow this about me but it is true. anyway, i am really arguing for keeping it simple. if the music is awesome, who cares if the band are boys or girls or what. you can't get any le...

Re: gender equality and indiepop

no no cloudy cat! i wasn't suggesting that at all. the point is, it didn't matter is tereshkova or gagarin went first, they were both world class cosmonauts and scientists, but by tokenistically making a point of having the first woman in space directly after the first man, just to try and score a p...

having seen 'rocky 4', i never needed any further convincing that communism was a failed philosophy and that only free market capitalism and masculine aggression can produce results
