Entertaining matt,thanks for the link.
Did you catch the end?
Green Mind-good,after Where You Been-bad
J never did anything that was bad in my opinion,the indie elitists think otherwise.
Spoon are`nt that good,kinda Pixies rip off stuff.
Galaxie was better then Luna,and Damon And Naomi are`nt bad.October 5, 2001 at 3:27 pm #58066
I just thought of something,there once was a discussion of indie cred on the local college station,a guy was talking about Evan Dando and the Lemonheads and how he misses the days in the 80`s that punk/indie bands were ugly,not like the 90`s Lemonheads looking like prom dates.He said that was street cred,if you were ugly like Husker Du,Minutemen,etc it was a good thing(not trying insult these guys).
I guess he longs for the days when punks and indie guys were`nt pretty boys,take Blink 182 for a recent example;you think back in 82 Social D would be teen heartthrobs?nope.(they`re still not today,thank God).
Guess it shows how punk/indie rock was screwed by the mainstream in the 90`s after Nirvana went big.October 5, 2001 at 3:49 pm #58067
Pretty hilarious site, looks like I just don’t make the grade in that indie school deal [img]images/smiles/converted/rolleyes.gif[/img] Don’t wear anything orange, green or yellow [img]images/smiles/converted/eek.gif[/img] Black is too LA [img]images/smiles/converted/eek.gif[/img] Hmmm don’t think I will cut down on my bathing habits either [img]images/smiles/converted/tongue.gif[/img] Drive a pretty nice car…black [img]images/smiles/converted/eek.gif[/img] Geez I think they are talking about the bizarro indie world…not the one I am familiar with [img]images/smiles/converted/tongue.gif[/img]
Odd that deal about how bands in the 80’s were viewed as ugly…superficial assessment in my opinion. To me interesting, challenging and innovative qualify in the WOW kinda way before the prom date kinda deal that Evan had happening.
ps I kinda like to think of myself as a sort of clever optimist… [img]images/smiles/converted/rolleyes.gif[/img]October 5, 2001 at 4:10 pm #58068
If not bathing is indie cool then the weirdos in my apt building are huge indie fans!
The clothing thing is dumb,I`m not very fashionable or care much for trendy clothes to have a indie look,guess that`s why no one would have guessed at the music I listened to in high school,problably would have shocked them that I like Sonic Youth,they would never had believed it.
My theory on indie fans and cars:they don`t have them!(I don`t anyway,but that`s ok I walk where I want to go).How much indie rock do you hear out car windows in the summer-where I live-none,it`s always hip hop or dance music.
No dissing Evan from me,I like the LH,the teen idol status was short lived,after the boy bands came around,the girls forgot all about Evan.
I think concentrating on the music is more important then what bands dress,talk,etc like.October 5, 2001 at 4:25 pm #58069
Wasn’t dissing Evan/LH just the superficial beauty thing that you mentioned in your 1st post. Agree the music is what needs to be focused on…kinda what I meant by the innovative, challenging and interesting thing…guess I didn’t make that very clear. Not very clever of me [img]images/smiles/converted/wink.gif[/img]
Don’t know about your car/indie theory, but hey will check some stats and get back to you [img]images/smiles/converted/biggrin.gif[/img] Weather around here is wicked, actually some snow today [img]images/smiles/converted/frown.gif[/img] so glad I have a car… [img]images/smiles/converted/biggrin.gif[/img]

I’ve read that a long time ago.
How do you think I post here and appear so intelligent? [img]images/smiles/converted/biggrin.gif[/img] [img]images/smiles/converted/rolleyes.gif[/img]October 5, 2001 at 4:37 pm #58071
I`m just confused today I guess.
The car thing,there`s not alot of indie fans in this city,Halifax is problably has more indie fans with cars,not like here in the heart of Darkness.
It`s a diffrent vibe in this town,the Haligonians laugh at Darkness(that`s why they call it Darkness,kinda backwards as compared to the larger more sophisticated city).October 5, 2001 at 4:40 pm #58072
Jaron-you also think that Fugazi recorded an album called the wack azz tuba riff record.October 5, 2001 at 4:45 pm #58073
What’s the deal with that cute little smiling guy wearing glasses and headphones? Is HE the face of indie rock or what?October 5, 2001 at 4:52 pm #58074

the [img]images/smiles/converted/rolleyes.gif[/img] in the first post was to indicate the obvious sarcasm…October 6, 2001 at 2:45 am #43869
So, I found this wonderful site for you indie newbies that want to look like experts.. [img]images/smiles/converted/wink.gif[/img]
Well, OK, actually I just kinda thought it was clever… [img]images/smiles/converted/cool.gif[/img]
No, I can’t lie… I studied so that I could look like an "indie rock expert." [img]images/smiles/converted/tongue.gif[/img] [img]images/smiles/converted/wink.gif[/img]
Well, whatever my cause, here it is…
