[JAAN]: What about the Kaise cheifs, thir branded as the next Blur
[octopus009]: I say they are quite a fun group but not nearly as good or as stylish as Blur once were. I say Bloc Party is the next big thing in Britpop...exce
[JAAN]: damnn straight blur were amazin. Damon Albarn had a go at Pete Docherty. PD is overated thouhg. A band the magic numbers are actualy quite good.
[octopus009]: What about Pulp? Jarvis Cocker is a terrific front man and a brilliant songwriter I think.
[JAAN]: I was about to mention the pulp. I was gonna buy his n hers, but bought a eric clapton tab book instead. I dont like the album different class at all, but some of thier lesser poppy songs are brilliant
[octopus009]: I disliked His n Hers..but I do believe Different Class to be a classic album.
[JAAN]: Have u heard of the tears
[JAAN]: They are prety cool, but the super furrys and the manicas are wales best exports
[octopus009]: The Tears...the old Suede front man/guitarist took that one up, yes?
[JAAN]: i find there album rally cringe inducing, if the lyrics arent write in a song i'll reject it like i do to he killerss or the pixies. Im not fussy i realy like weeezers new song
[JAAN]: does anyone find the introduction of coffe and tv reallly hard to do on the guitar, there are some weird subtle probally improvised ryythms used
[octopus009]: Yes it's really hard! I Can't figure it out..I think No Distance Left to Run is kind of hard.
[JAAN]: yep very distinctive idiosyncric rythm. Who would u say are the modern day equivelants to blur, probally weezer. are pavement any good, for me american music is bad and berefet of originality
[octopus009]: Pavement?! BAD?! Pavement is single handedly one of the most original and talented groups in american history! Buy anyone of their albums and you will see.
[JAAN]: im sure pavement are good cause i've heard a lot of good things about them! Are devo any good then
[octopus009]: They are a very witty and very catchy New Wave group..I don't have an album of theirs but I've heard a variety of work from them and it had all been good. Do you like The Bravery? I find them to be a sort of Smiths rip off..in a good way
[JAAN]: really i quite ate the bravrey and the killers i find them lame retrogressive and chessy, especialy the bravery, killres are better musically but there lyrics are kringe inducing
[octopus009]: I would have to disagree there..because their doing exactly what acts like Blur, Oasis, Pulp, and others did in the 90's...which was looking back to their influences
[JAAN]: No but this emulates them, blur were a true melding pot of specific influences and genuine talent and cruicialy innovation
[octopus009]: Indeed, but then again there are bands like Metro, the Bravery, Bloc Party, The Killers, Franz Ferdinand, and more...who make great records and still have that retro alternative sound
