(Starpulse)   You've never heard of this rock duo who are obviously having so much trouble selling albums that they've called out Katy Perry for "selling sex to children." If there was only something they could do to increase sales   (starpulse.com) divider line 88

skepticultist: I've heard of Crystal Castles. You must just be a farking square.

And I would totally bang April Glass before Katy Perry. Goth chicks are way hot.


They are but not the one in TFA.

Saw them about a week ago in L.A. They're definitely not my cup of tea, but judging from the crowd they have their fans.

WHAT? You mean this album cover wasn't meant to make you think of the deep, insightful lyrics and soul-moving, expertly-composed music it contains?

Why would ANYONE thing she's just using sex to sell albums?

Same here. I enjoy their sound quite a lot. My coworkers...not so much.

It's okay though. They tend to scatter when I switch over to The Knife.

guy_smiley: I'm a guy who's typically into electronic bands with hot chick singers, but I recall looking these guys up and not being able to listen for very long. Hmm.


Same here. I gave them a listen when someone mentioned them to me. I could only tolerate about 3 mins of it. Tuneless crap.

Aeonic_Blue: Best live shows out there, too. Alice Glass is farking insane. I've seen 'em four times. Most people would think it's hell. Dark, distorted, screeching, strobes. Had her spit vodka all over me once, and she's kicked me in the face. I've also managed to feel up my musical idol three times, because that crazy biatch crowd surfs and let's herself get violently molested every time, all the while hitting people and screaming shiat you can't remotely make out into the mic.


Well that sounds healthy.

I can't take a band named "Crystal Castles" seriously. What, are they going to release a split 7" EP with "Marble Madness"?

Actually, all the old Atari arcade machines sound like hipster bands:

Paperboy
Xybots
S.T.U.N. Runner
Klax
Blasteroids
Vindicators

TFA:

Rockers Crystal Castles have launched a furious tirade against Katy Perry, branding the pop star "evil" and accusing her of "selling sex" to children.

The dance duo is astonished at some of Perry's risqué concert routines and tour merchandise, and has slammed her for wearing her notorious 'cream-shooting' bra.

Marching band are adamant the I Kissed a Girl hit-maker should be more responsible around her young audience and blame her for "sexualizing" youngsters.

Whamolaist Alice Glass tells NME magazine, "I think a lot of (pop stars) sell sex to children. I think a lot of kids are more sexualized now than they were years ago and I'm not sure it's a coincidence. Like f**king Katy Perry spraying people with her f**king d**k, her f**king c** gun c**ming on f**king children. And little girls, like six-year-old girls wearing a shirt with 'I wanna see your (pea) cock' on it."

Timpanist/conductor Ethan Kath says, "On the merch (merchandise) for that (Perry) song Peacock, the 'Pea' is on a different line so you don't see it. She sells it to f**king children."

Sand adds, "It's f**king evil. Don't prey on vulnerable people like that. Don't encourage little girls to get dressed up, to have cupcakes on their t**s to get people to lick them off, 'cos that's what you're insinuating."

It's impossible to see a live concert anywhere other than a bar, yet kids keep listening to music. It's a scandal, I says!

Who buys music based on album covers anymore? The last time I saw an album before listening to it was like 1996. Everyone buys online.

CAT! Some people really hate them.

No, actually it's cum.

I get artist/album art displayed with my MP3s. You should look into that. It's pretty rad.

Aeonic_Blue: Oh, I've heard of Crystal Castles. I wouldn't expect most people to like them, but then again, this is a site that waxes farking poetic about the farking fossilized remains of Rush fer chrissakes. Nothing on this earth sounds like Crystal Castles, and the fact that pretty much everyone I'm antithetically opposed to absolutely despises them gives me the warm fuzzies.

Their new album drops in twelve days. I salivate at the thought.

Best live shows out there, too. Alice Glass is farking insane. I've seen 'em four times. Most people would think it's hell. Dark, distorted, screeching, strobes. Had her spit vodka all over me once, and she's kicked me in the face. I've also managed to feel up my musical idol three times, because that crazy biatch crowd surfs and let's herself get violently molested every time, all the while hitting people and screaming shiat you can't remotely make out into the mic.

How many Katy Perry fans have had her ass in their face? Yeah, that's what I thought.


Was this you?

Katy Perry songs are acually pretty good............when Boyce Avenue does them
Link

I could leave her feeling unsatisfied and take a nap.
 
2012-11-01 07:16:18 AM
I've never heard of them but they have a pretty damn good point.

Oh and this:

Mystery Vortex: Well, to be fair, Perry *is* a talentless coont who relies on gimmicks to sell any of her "music".

 
2012-11-01 07:22:00 AM

uknowzit: Uh Yes I have heard of them and have two discs.

So they stole Atari Teenage Riot's bit then eh?

Lulz. The only time I ever had somebody actually tell me to 'switch the f*cking station' was when Fever Ray rolled over on Pandora. Guess it was just too much. These are guys who live for Fossil Rock and Bro Rock. I told them it was revenge for flooding the office with Limp Bizkit.

Gee, I wonder why I'd rather have kids listen to Katy Perry than this class act...

fark yeah!
 
2012-11-01 04:09:02 PM
Just to further prove Subby wrong, I also can vouch for Crystal Castles putting on a good show... And I wasn't even groping Alice! Their first album is certainly not for everyone, but I love the robotic/trippy/goth techo sound that it has. Unlike any other band, that is for sure.
