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 (five 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.

yeah, I thought about F. Perry right after posting that !
Let's say, out of the sport world (otherwise you have Lacoste, etc).
As for these brands "phat face, sean john, roc-a-wear, ivy park...", I must say I don't know them... (except roc-a-wear but is it a big brand though ?)

These celebrity brands always seem like vanity projects to me and I wonder if they really make money out of it.

AlXTC from Paris, Wednesday, 3 April 2019 11:07 (three months ago) link

lol my husband has a nice coat (non parka) from there. neither of us had any idea it was anything to do with a Gallagher.

tbf there could be his face literally wallpapering the shop and he wouldn't have noticed.

Twisted Wheel have more depth than some critics gave them credit for: “I was getting compared to Dylan, Cohen, Donovan before Twisted Wheel then we became a band and playing those same songs then getting called lad rock,” he says. “That’s bloody bone idleness to be honest. They try and destroy you people. There's a lot of jealously out there. You normally find people who are instigating stuff like that are out of bands who aren’t getting anywhere in their own band.” Brutal.

Based on a cursory listen to their 2012 single 'Ride', they're mildly preferable to Greta Van Fleet.

pomenitul, Friday, 14 June 2019 13:53 (one month ago) link

Their latest, 'Nomad Hat', is vaguely listenable. I don't hate the stuff, possibly due to some lingering exoticism.
