Of the Brit rock supergroups to invade and remain in the States, only three matter, and of the three Muse are the least popular and the best. But what does that say? That Matt Bellamy abstains from Chris martin’s mewling egotism and Bono’s Messianic braggadocio for a plainspeak rock star singlemindedness?
The band are pros, neither in awe or nor indifferent to their surroundings, the set is a jet propelled wonder so good live, you have to wonder if it’s the producer who is botching the job on record.
Morrissey is the same way, he lacks any sense of proportion and everything is on this one huge level of fury: the Queen’s corgi is pregnant, the UK in Baghdad, they cancelled Emerald farm –all well over the top…
Coldplay are the Blue Man Group of rock and roll, they keep on forcing us to participate when we just wanna consume em. Jigga thinks he is Frank SInatra when he is actually Al Martino. Chris will do anything for us, Jigga wants us to do anything for him. And both artists are past their prime.
Sitek is a talented fellow, for his sins he produced the Scarlett Johansen album and Foals album, but both of them are kinda mood albums, and while TVOTR can rock, they can’t rock the same way young Liam can. They aren’t roar of rock and roll Limey style guys
Coldplay managed to muster some energy somewhere in the middle of a years long tour, they went through the motions with the best of them. And if you were a fan who, as Helen Bach noted, had gone to Pizza Uno for a pizza and a beer and who thought of this as big night out, perhaps you bought in.
Well then get a load of this list. Paste is pretty cool but the list its eh.. sorta not what I would have picked. The artists themselves are not to wrong its the placement. Radiohead above Bowie and The Clash?
So Keith Moon, the greatest rock and roll drummer of all time, was a very funny guy. I was good friends with this man who was a bell boy (bell man!) at the Excelsior Hotel in Manchester, and he crowned Moon the greatest rock and roll star of em all. And he would know. He claimed Moon was an uproariously funny guy
An overlong hour song set was more than a taste but even from a distance the band had an excellent dynamic, seldom jamming, always at service to the songs, and with a pretty good leader in Turner, they had problems making an impression.
I’m over the moon! I really couldn’t have hoped for a better start to 2012.”
I knew they were in trouble when Alex Turner got off the dancefloor early and within a year was sporting shades and a model girlfriend in Los Angeles. I mean, it’s his life of course but wasn’t that a little fast by anybodies standards?
“I think there’s a healing process waiting to take place. I think it’shappening now as we speak, but it has to be resolved,” Wood said, referring to Richards revealing details of Jagger’s anatomy in his biography
Liam Gallagher, who seems to never be out of words in order to insult his brother, will play at the Wiltern with his Beady Eye on Saturday, and the LA Weekly spoke with him,… but what else could be expected? Liam talked shit about Noel,… literally!
Chris Marin is well on his way to becoming the weirdiest man in rock and roll, he is a passive aggressive hot mess unable to manage the middle ground between his inflated ego and Public School Boy “Thank you Sir, may I have another” psychosis.
His solo show featured an eclectic range of music from an unplugged two man acoustic performance at the beginning to his full band and the accompanying Dessoff Choir during the second half of the show
It makes sense for bands visiting nyc fto appear on SNL to play a local date in anticipation of millions watching you completely live (well, except on the West Coast). So, dya feel lucky, punk?
Well, well, well, big brother teaches little sqrt a lesson in selling the product! “Wonderwall”!! “Supersonic”!!! Noel can’t sing em great but he did write them…
Let’s face it, there is no one sane on this planet who doesnt love this song
it’s getting better man
non-stop high-energy garage-rock-post-punk
The singer’s voice is refreshing and just completely perfect
They’re artistic but not so much as too annoy.
I now aspire to be a hobo.
I would sever an artery (yours or mine) to see this film
It has the ‘yeah baby’ Brit swaggah infamous
line up of some pretty heavy hitters and there is no pun intended
if the songs work, the set is working and when they don’t, Liam can’t save them
I can totally relate to my veggie brethren here.
Their songs are direct and simple, straightforward but interesting and distinct enough from one to another
a perfect lead off song
pretty piece of product
Good luck with that virginity thing
Will they be coming to the States?
hope he changes his mind
Who the fuck is Art Brut anyway?
It was really an Attractions set
I hope he was this good yesterday
Morrissey: Next Album Complete
The Wombats are pure dance in your underwear around the room singing in to a hairbrush sort of band.
Problem? Yup, you got it all West Coast.
the Wombats had me at hello.
Liam Gallagher is a real treasure
I’m not sure if growing up was such a great idea
