Re: The Drums?

Nah, from my experiences,in the 80's, people who were more into mainsteam stuff just thought of you as 'weird'. Not 'indie'

Re: The Drums?

I notice on this thread that some people have talked about the way 'indie' once meant 'independent' and it got twisted to mean 'white blokes with guitars'..well, very true that is, but i suspect that now you don't even need to have 'the guitars'. I think 'indie' is now viewed by the clothes you wear...

Re: Song suggestions: a mixtape about mixtapes

I think it probably started in America, and has taken over...a bit like McDonnalds (McCruelty - YUCK!). Not that i'm anti-American. But i am anti McDonnalds.

Re: Song suggestions: a mixtape about mixtapes

'mixtape' must be a very American thing? We here in Blighty, always made 'compilations' and still do.

Re: The Drums?

Having never before heard The Drums, and watched a bit of one of their videos,(my best friend, i think it was called, the one where the idot singer climbs in a window) I, as a completely un violent person, would like to rip the legs of each and every one of them. Horrible, 'wacky' and arrrrrah...jus...

Re: The Rosehips

Back in the day The Groove Farm played many shows along side The Rosehips, and I for one can safely and honestly say that Ant, as well as every other Rosehip was completely sound. There was no arrogance there at all. I could quite easily list you a number of indiepop bands from around those times wh...

Re: Big Pink Cake Summertime Special Sat July 2nd Bristol

Just got back from the Big Pink Cake Summertime Special, which was ace. 2 negative points. 1. the sound guy could have tried to be a bit interested (didn't even bother to soundcheck my stuff, was too busy nipping outside to smoke & chat on the phone! )... and 2. I didn't like the rest of the buildin...
