finally someone brings the vitriol; I was getting worried.

(my secret reason for starting this thread - wondering whether my uh dislike of this stuff is reconcilable w/my penchant for "duff euro-rapping" or whatever (tho haha none of the ppl who listen to DHT/GT!!!/whatevah that I've met have ever, ever given anything disco-&-beyond the time of day))

extreme animals are definitely influenced by the cheez-e trance. lotsa epic synth breakdowns/washes.

well I don't think I've actually heard a single other artist mentioned in this thread, so I don't actually know if Cex is comparable or any better or any worse, but when I first saw him DJ and he was spinning DMX and M.O.P. instrumentals at indie shows, well it was pretty refreshing 4 years ago. and I don't think he gets enough credit for the fact that he went from a gimmicky live show where he pretended to rap and freestyled on silly topics, to actually writing full verses of fairly serious rhymes and becoming an at least slightly above average undie MC. but he quickly moved onto something completely different, so whatever.

My local record shop is claiming that the new Gravy Train album sounds like the Shangri Las singing Peaches. This sounds oddly appealing.

Well its definitely preferable to Peaches singing Shangri-Las.

It's a bit garage rock and bit rubbish, and I used to have a lot of time for Gravy Train!!!!.

i like hawnay troof's enthusiasm. but it's kinda empty enthusiasm. it's like watching kids who've had too many red bulls playing air hockey; kinda fun for about a minute, then really really dull.

xbxrx are the sha-na-na of hardcore. i assume that's the point, though.

wow, i'm pretty sure i SAW gravy train (!!! i guess) back in 2004 or thereabouts, but i remember almost nothing about them. certainly don't remember them being offensive enough to merit the kind of reaction they got here, but hey who knows.
