If I saw any of these bands swaggering down the street towards me I'd certainly piss myself... laughing

(slight Walker Brothers vibe from that last one which slightly saves them though)

slamming on the dubstep brakes (snoball), Monday, 22 July 2013 09:31 (seven years ago) link

Well look on the bright side, at least none of these bands will fall foul of a club's 'no trainers' rule. The 'no looking like a complete twonk' rule might be a problem however.

See, I did wonder if that first picture was those twunts Kasabian or just some twunts trying to look like Kasabian... and I still have no idea.

if i knew which one was which i could maybe agree but i can't spot any odd ones out

as i scrape further down the barrel i'm finding that the bottom-feeders usually have one guy who hasn't quite got the look down

the key to having the swagger of Oasis is looking like you huffed too much gas at some point in your life.

Our music is easy to listen to, nothing complicated, just great, positive tunes, obviously influenced by core bands like the Beatles, Oasis, and the Stone Roses. But for me personally, we are all about the songs.

"Yea definitely, the industry’s a bit too squeaky clean, and has been for quite a bit now. Hopefully we can give it a kick up the arse. Especially with The Stones Rose(sic), and Noel Gallaghers new albums sort of taking off quite big, hopefully it will be a big surge and not just one band – a movement bringing guitar bands back. Hopefully we can be involved in that." Tom from The Modern Faces.

Men With Bangs

calstars, Sunday, 21 February 2021 19:54 (two weeks ago) link

I can identify the nationality of British guys in Central Park and the Met by their haircut alone most of the time. You see these guys with really short hair, almost like a crewcut, but with short little bangs it looks SO WEIRD or at least it's uncommon here for men and boys with very short hair to wear it so forward idk... Like when you say "men with bangs" I equate that with moderately longish hair or shaggy hair.

There is a well-established Oasis tribute band called Oasish already (checks: since 2004!) - presumably this so-not-gonna-happen festival could only afford the Oasish tribute band, not the Oasis tribute band.

Does Clint Boon look at that line-up and feel aggrieved or relieved that there is no Inspiral Carpets tribute band I wonder?

i think one of the inspiral carpets actually ended up playing in an inspiral carpets tribute act

groovypanda, Thursday, 25 February 2021 12:45 (one week ago) link

will have to update the tribute band thread tomorrow, but yes, the band reformed in 2011 with the original original singer; five years later the popular-era singer formed a tribute band called Kar-Pets.

ty for that pic

Clint Boon has been one of the earliest & most dedicated baggy tribute DJs, and iirc also ran nostalgia bus tours in Manchester? certainly big enough to keep his ex-singer off the bill if they still hate each other
