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

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.

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

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.

How's your swagger?

Absolutely terrible. Does anyone have the number of a good swagcoach?

btw I have never raised a fist in anger but the closest I've ever come close to glassing someone is when I played one of those gigs where you just get three random unfitting bands thrown together on a wednesday night in Leicester or whatever. Making small talk beforehand with the guitarist from one of the other bands, who could have passed for most of these fuckers in the thread what kind of music he played, and he just leaned back on the bar and drawled "rock n roooooll, man." ffffff

actually I'm quite interested to hear about your brushes with landfill

The most startled looks I ever got was with the proggy post-metal band I was in that tuned down to G, I don't think people were expecting something that heavy lol. Otherwise sorry to disappoint, most of my musical forays have been quite vanilla, occasionally I join a band because I feel like I ought to be doing something but I rarely find anyone with interesting taste. Increasingly resigned to the idea that if I want to get something out I need to do it myself and throw it up on bandcamp to be ignored.

Or I could become like a sleeper agent with one of these landfill bands, gradually twist them around to my way of thinking so we end up playing a mix of Gentle Giant and Liturgy with the swagger of Forgotten Spell.

Also when I was quite young I was kicked out of a metal band for playing too many notes, that's gotta get get me some progge points

"I’ve always had a band or been a singer. It’s like a disease. It never leaves me."

the guy from the famous apostrophe free Mikes Carpets tv advert nails this whole phenomena.

“I started my career on the markets and in the early days, when I was out gigging, that supported my income. Nowadays I play abroad a lot, such as in Majorca from time to time.

“I do early rock ‘n’ roll – and a lot of Rod Stewart for obvious reasons!”

Anyone interested in him expanding on these "obvious reasons" should listen to him speak about his extraordinary life as a guest of Batley History group.

He has the swagger of Charlie Mullins. Possibly a thread there on business owners from around the UK still trying to look like Rod Stewart ca. 1975.

a mix between the Irish showband scene and Gaelic folk music with the stagger of Ronnie Drew. Sorry for thread abuse, but those suits the insipid venture scouts + Alarm tribute band are wearing make me hanker for the old pisshead tramp style suits that were much more de rigeur in the 20th century.

That song/those people are awfully corny for sure but that is probably the best thing on this thread. It would be one of the better Eurovision rock songs in fact.
