can't believe jams sold out and went w/ an unironic corporate buzztitle and decided to be inspired by franz ferinand

corporate buzztitle

Mr. Que, Tuesday, 30 March 2010 16:08 (4 years ago) Permalink

oh good, there's enough zinging going on here to cover me too

good looking out, guys! ^_^

looks like "this" isnt happening at all, unless "this" is "a corporate buzztitle"

D'oh for being the only person who likes the cover. It's no New Amerykah pt 2, but I think it's dapper.

ILM cynicism strikes again!

I like the cover

iatee, Tuesday, 30 March 2010 16:12 (4 years ago) Permalink

i would love it, if it werent inspired by franz ferdinand

^^^remembers when indie wasn't dead

Mr. Que, Tuesday, 30 March 2010 16:13 (4 years ago) Permalink

reminds me a lot of lodger : david bowie.

mark e, Tuesday, 30 March 2010 16:13 (4 years ago) Permalink

i believe that was inspired by franz ferdinand as well

max, Tuesday, 30 March 2010 16:14 (4 years ago) Permalink

seriously lj, do you sometimes sit there and think to yourself "let's see, what is the most speciously infuriating thing I could write to make my fellow posters sprain their eyeballs from reflexive rolling" before you post?

STAY ALIVE USING EQUIPMENT (HI DERE), Tuesday, 30 March 2010 16:14 (4 years ago) Permalink

hahaha at Bowie travelling forward in time and being inspired by Franz.

Davek (davek_00), Tuesday, 30 March 2010 16:15 (4 years ago) Permalink

franz ferdinand was born way the fuck before bowie

egregious apostrophising (schlump), Tuesday, 30 March 2010 16:16 (4 years ago) Permalink

Also was about to say it reminded me of Low onwards Bowie, later period Roxy Music and suited-and-booted New Pop.

Davek (davek_00), Tuesday, 30 March 2010 16:16 (4 years ago) Permalink

and his death inspired bowie's nazi period

iatee, Tuesday, 30 March 2010 16:17 (4 years ago) Permalink

can't believe LCD is inspired by Beck

Mr. Que, Tuesday, 30 March 2010 16:17 (4 years ago) Permalink

the vocal harmonies are great, definitely a lodger thing going on

but yeah i'm put off that the shout is "drunk girls" but that probably doesn't matter

goole, Tuesday, 30 March 2010 16:17 (4 years ago) Permalink

the thing is, a certain proportion of girls at any given time are in fact drunk, so ... it's not offensive

how many photos will be subjected to tilted chiaroscuro shops with 'corporate buzztitle' annotations in the coming months

zero

which buzztitle is the most corporate:

  • this is happening, by lcd soundsystem
  • is this it, by the strokes
  • franz ferdinand, by the franz ferdinand
  • smells like teen spirit, by nirvana
  • meet the beatles, by the beatles
  • the fifth symphony, by beethoven

max, Tuesday, 30 March 2010 16:26 (4 years ago) Permalink

also pretty sure Tunde is just b

smells like teen spirit, by Beethoven

I was thinking of making this joke, but then I didn't

iatee, Tuesday, 30 March 2010 16:27 (4 years ago) Permalink

dude missed out on the prized l0u1s jagg3r demographic by not calling his album "ozymandias' labia pt. I: the cum-drops of evermore"

congratulations (n/a), Tuesday, 30 March 2010 16:27 (4 years ago) Permalink

Is This It is such a look-what-a-hip-hyped-new-band-we-are-and-this-album-will-be-huge title. Don't know about corporate buzzkill though.

Davek (davek_00), Tuesday, 30 March 2010 16:28 (4 years ago) Permalink

"ozymandias' labia pt. I: the cum-drops of evermore"

holy fucking lol

STAY ALIVE USING EQUIPMENT (HI DERE), Tuesday, 30 March 2010 16:28 (4 years ago) Permalink

there's surely something offensively platitudinous about 'This Is Happening', isn't there? any album-title you could conscionably add 'yeah' on the end of in regular speech isn't worth adopting imo

oh ok i am lolling

your mind works in such bizarre ways

iatee, Tuesday, 30 March 2010 16:31 (4 years ago) Permalink

ozymandias' labia pt. I: the cum-drops of evermore, yeah?

max, Tuesday, 30 March 2010 16:31 (4 years ago) Permalink

The problem with that proscription is that you can add "yeah" on the end of anything.

xp: dammit max I was about to post that

no not really

goole, Tuesday, 30 March 2010 16:32 (4 years ago) Permalink

guys I'm not sure but I think there might be a song called "yeah"

congratulations (n/a), Tuesday, 30 March 2010 16:32 (4 years ago) Permalink

xpost Come on it's Jams Murphy - he subject to different criteria. Every gesture he makes is filtered through this jokey/sincerity dichotomy. I'd agree if like Sufjan or Lady Gaga called their hotly-anticipated album 'This is Happening'.

Although i kind of see yr point.

Davek (davek_00), Tuesday, 30 March 2010 16:32 (4 years ago) Permalink

the title is fairly crap but i don't think it's worth getting offended over

nakhchivan, Tuesday, 30 March 2010 16:33 (4 years ago) Permalink

this is hoppening

I can't wait until this album leaks. This thread will be bananas.

im boycotting the album on the grounds of it being too corporate

Just remembered that the words 'this is happening' form part of the title of my favourite self-penned poem - I retreat in shame anew
