Whoever you and coldstorage are fans of.So continuing on from the ‘96 thread who’s got the worst fans in music? My personal picks based on seeing all of these play multiple times.
Belle & Sebastian - like a bed wetters’ convention
Pet Shop Boys - have a small but dedicated minority that follow them around causing aggro down the front at gigs. Chris Lowe is a bit of a gay sports-casual icon which I guess is where it comes from
Kraftwerk - been told off for dancing or more than one occasion
If you’re looking for something new to listen to, based on what you normally listen to, you might like my friend’s band Western Settings. They don’t have a “New” album but might be new to you. They just toured Europe with Nothington. Toured with Swingin’ Utters last summer. Have opened for Lagwagon and Strung Out. I think they’re awesome.I have been listening to as many albums from this year as possible. So far I have been disappointed. I'm about half way through the all the albums mentioned in the 2018 music thread.
I really think I have been disappointed because most albums are outside of what I normally listen to. Which was why I decided to do this in the first place. I wanted new music.
Also listened to frizzle fry while drinking last night. I love that album.
coldstorage wrote but did not post said:Ppl are gonna think it’s some post hoc trolling hangover from the 96 thread but my number one w/ a bullet has always been: propagandhi. I can provide expert testimony I have been fighting the good fight on this for 20+ years. Just the sight of a T-shirt stresses me the fuck out.
You get the already unbearable hell of the ahistorical pop punk cultural solipsist that loudly thinks classic punk and hc is tuneless trash, and therefore has no shame commandeering the historic term for their new toothless bubble gum iteration. Then, hit it with a delusion of political sophistication and innovation multiplier, dress it up in some terminally unfunny humor... and when it gets to the back of the catalog you king it with some watered down back nine of life poor mans "prog" that leaves em babbling utter nonsense. Like it’s not mystifying when a band that sucks starts sucking more, happens every day.
Ever had someone giggle about “ska sucks” and then pivot into some srs business consternation face singing along to “I question the Boy Scouts shouting war”? and then turn to you with a straight face on some “kinda makes you think” tip? It should be illegal.
Finding out someone you love is a fan is like stumbling across their stash of home made beatiality porn. I’d rather sand my toes off then endure one more conversation.
Just in the wild though. Have found all the fans posting here utterly lovely exceptions to the rule!
IMO, ymmv, LYMI, etc.
thats not bad at all. though, you seem to me to have a bigger problem with their fans than the bands music.Took a spin through my billion open TB windows on my phone and found the orig draft. Apologies in advance for the already used content in subsequent posts.
It looks like it's from their cruise event. As usually happens at those kinds of events, people get really drunk, someone dresses up, and something you can only respond "WTF?" to happens.
Rush - 2112 Pretty obvious I suppose
