This is the second thing today that reminded me of Cop Shoot Cop. Specifically "Coldest Day of the Year", which I remember from John Peel ages ago:

New album is fantastic. Hope they play here at some point, they must be a riot live.

I’ve been wondering why we didn’t have a thread already

holy fuck at the "Shoulderblades" video; perfect

Simon H., Monday, 30 September 2019 17:57 (two years ago) link

have always strongly & viscerally disliked this lot but who knows maybe that'll change

i think they've progressed a lot from their early work but also this is a band where i couldn't decide if you'd love them or absolutely hate them lj

"shoulderblades" is my music video of the year

american bradass (BradNelson), Monday, 30 September 2019 18:03 (two years ago) link

it won't, I'll leave you all alone

see also: black midi (although given the choice i'd say they're preferable)

the video did seem cool though

I didn’t like Holding Hands with Jamie nearly as much as I did The Early Years. Hope this is more of a return to form at least as far as my ears are concerned

This introduced me to the band.
Don't care if it's a cover, it's fucking brilliant.
I was bummed they didn't play it when I saw them with (still at that point called) Viet Cong.

Loud guitars shit all over "Bette Davis Eyes" (NYCNative), Tuesday, 1 October 2019 04:55 (two years ago) link

WTHTBUMG is still my go-to for when the plane is about to take off

kinda sounds like swans fronted by james murphy?

As I mentioned on the songs that sound like other songs thread, I have decided “law man” is a great cover of Pretty Woman

El Tomboto, Thursday, 3 October 2019 17:14 (two years ago) link

Also they should do a track with the guy from Sleaford Mods

two years pass...

So, why ‘were’ they called Girl Band in the first place?

Kill me.

Yeah, I saw that.

Still none the wiser..

Mark G, Wednesday, 17 November 2021 14:05 (two weeks ago) link

My guess is they thought it was funny. Maybe simply because none of them are girls, but it's always had that undercurrent of lol girl bands are inherently funny, lololol girl musicians amirite? The name itself isn't offensive at all, but when you're placing yourself in a culture that constantly diminishes women then it's good to have a deeper think about your place in it. Good on them, I say.

emil.y, Wednesday, 17 November 2021 15:11 (two weeks ago) link

That's true. But without ever digging any deeper I thought it was probably just the obvious play on and opposition to to the idea of the "boy band".

feed me with your clicks (Noel Emits), Wednesday, 17 November 2021 15:17 (two weeks ago) link

Well, I guessed it was meant to be ironic.

Just, the idea that they had no idea themselves was..

It’s not like waking up one morning and you’ve got a tattoo you don’t remember
