Wow, an actual opinion, free from juvenile remarks. Who do you find interesting Lyra?

So Scott, you've never delivered an opinion with a 'juvenile' remark in it? Teach us this talent.

when you're trying to comunnicate with a 5 year old it sometimes helps to talk like one ......... dipshit

jump on the typo ... i'm sure you're itching to

scott, Wednesday, 15 August 2001 00:00 (13 years ago) Permalink

Ned - i noticed in an earlier post you didn't care much for ATDI's hair , after looking at your picture on your site, I'm not sure you could criticise anyone's hair with any authority.

what do you think, style maven?

scott, Wednesday, 15 August 2001 00:00 (13 years ago) Permalink

I think Ned's locks are very cool. Indie-boys with afros can suck my ass, though.

My first post sure started this thread off on a good note, didn't it? Anyway, I am personally sick of music like ATDI. I'm tired of vocalists that sound constantly on the verge of pinching a big loaf. I'm tired of absolutely BLAH lyrics, empty sub-Cobainisms that say nothing but are supposed to be insightful. I'm tired of unjustified stop-starts and time-changes. I'm tired of seeing people grunting against their guitars like factory workers. And most of all, I'm tired of indie-boy afros.

Hmmm. Attacking someones hair. Is that a TOS violation? If only our blasted admins weren't sleeping. Stupid time zones. Anyone with an afro looks pretty silly, but sub-Dischord white boys look especially ridiculous. Besides, Ned likes Sparks and Motorhead and AR Kane and the Young Marble Giants, so he's got my vote already.

This thread has reached the point where I'm wondering if Scott's not just playing us for suckers with his uber defensiveness. (I'd have to admit it would be pretty funny if that was the case.) The only other explaination I can figure is that the guy with the 'fro is related to him.

Jess, Thursday, 16 August 2001 00:00 (13 years ago) Permalink

See Tom's note above. It's true, some people have been pretty dismissive of ATDI on this thread. I don't think this excuses your petulant posts, Scott. Maybe you should take Tom's advice and stay out of threads that you can't help but become upset from reading.

Also, I wish people wouldn't try to egg on an obviously already-petulant poster. Who cares? It's not worth your time.

So let me guess you all got turned down for your respective positions you applied for at real magazines. Subsequently must have all made your own ever-so-indie lameass websites so you could get your overblown opinions out to the handfult that would listen....Am i getting warm?

Okay, it's time: I'll organize the pool. It's US$5 a head, and I'm going to be generous and go for "fifteen." This leaves ages from eight through 18, tops, for the rest of you.

This was probably covered already in the 70-odd posts to this thread, but WHY does Scott keep replying to himself? People that reply to themselves = dud.

I'm not replying to myself dumbass, i'm replying to you....

people that can't think of anything else to say, so they harp on some minute point = dud

Oh. Well you still end up looking like a schitzo derelict that got his hands on a netzero account.

sadly, another drugs overdose, in rock music.

Jim Ward, [only 27]
http://www.dotmusic.com/news//May2003/news29560.asp
Jim Ward, guitarist for At The Drive-In, sometime member of The Mars Volta and lead singer with Sparta, has been found dead at his home in California.

DJ Martian (djmartian), Wednesday, 28 May 2003 14:45 (11 years ago) Permalink

Ummm... dotmusic is wrong.

Mars Volta Member Dies

Jeremy Ward, sound/vocal manipulator for At the Drive-In offshoots the Mars Volta and De Facto, died of an apparent drug overdose in his Los Angeles home on Sunday. He was 27 years old. The Mars Volta had just returned to L.A. to rest between legs supporting Red Hot Chili Peppers' North American tour. Jeremy was the brother of Sparta frontman/ex-ATDI guitarist Jim Ward.

Reformation talk: http://www.nme.com/news/at-the-drive-in/45300

The only thing more surprising than this prospect, I'd say, is that of scores of self-important retards making out like it's somehow their fucking business if a band chooses to get back together to play their own music. Pretty sure that won't happen though

That's right on the cusp between amazing and unwatchable. I gave this one big points in the metal poll, has eff all chance of placing though I'd guess.

'Enfilade' is a great song. I didn't know it was so embarrassing to like ATDI back in 2001.

Shin Oliva Suzuki, Tuesday, 3 August 2010 23:13 (4 years ago) Permalink

That Arcarsenal performance is still amazing

underneath the moon and the stars (Whitey on the Moon), Wednesday, 4 August 2010 07:26 (4 years ago) Permalink

RoC is good, and Enfilade & Catacombs are particularly awesome (the dub middle 8 in Enfilage = wow, still), but yeah, Ross Robinson totally lost the really fucking wild, live but bizarre edge that Vaya has. I still dig Vaya out quite often and play it.

Captain Ostensible (Scik Mouthy), Wednesday, 4 August 2010 11:01 (4 years ago) Permalink

I hardly play Vaya, I really like Relationship much much more. But In/Casino/Out might be my favorite ATDI-record. Still love this band dearly, and I'm glad I got to watch them live at their final show (@ Vera, Groningen in 2001).

did anyone watch that '250 episodes of later with jools holland' on saturday? It was basically showing classic performances. At The Drive In's amazing performance consisted of jumping about , doing crazy stuff and stealing the other acts' furniture. The next act on was Robbie Williams who began his act with about ten seconds of silence before he said "Can my mate have his chair back please?" It was pretty funny.

cajunsunday, Monday, 13 September 2010 17:06 (4 years ago) Permalink

timely revive -- been listening to these dudes a lot lately. I don't really get the hate for Relationship of Command's (admittedly glossy) 'modern rock' production (especially now that we're almost 10 years removed from that sound dominating the airwaves); if nothing else, it makes the crunchy moments really fuckin' CRUNCH, no?
