ITT: "lolhipstersamiright?"
 
2013-04-23 10:27:13 AM  
When you consider there was something like 135 acts performing at Coachella and that only about 5 of them have anything close to mainstream name recognition, this doesn't surprise me at all...
 
2013-04-23 10:27:17 AM  
So, it's like a hipster version of the FARK Politics tab?

Personally, I was blown away by Gunt and Mrs. Potato Dick.

It's usually more fun to make up band names than to have to sit through them anyway.  I only want to be a musician so I can rename the band at every gig.  I was actually in a band that did this so we could get the same people to show up at our gigs on consecutive nights.

My brother's old band used to be named Tonight's Special Guest.  It was a fun way to mess with people.  Then they signed on to be Vokab Kompany's live band.  He no longer plays in the group due to some personal falling-outs, but it was a fun run while it lasted.   He's featured playing guitar on an epic live jam at the Lightning in a Bottle festival a few years back, but most of VK's studio stuff doesn't feature live players (part of the reason for the falling out).

Anyway...

Dead Monkeys are to split up again, according to their manager, Lefty Goldblatt. They've been in the business now ten years, nine as other groups. Originally the Dead Salmon, they became for a while, Trout. Then Fried Trout, then Poached Trout In A White Wine Sauce, and finally, Herring. Splitting up for nearly a month, they re-formed as Red Herring, which became Dead Herring for a while, and then Dead Loss, which reflected the current state of the group. Splitting up again to get their heads together, they reformed a fortnight later as Heads Together, a tight little name which lasted them through a difficult period when their drummer was suspected of suffering from death. It turned out to be only a rumor and they became Dead Together, then Dead Gear, which lead to Dead Donkeys, Lead Donkeys, and the inevitable split up. After nearly ten days, they reformed again as Sole Manier, then Dead Sole, Rock Cod, Turbot, Haddock, White Baith, the Places, Fish, Bream, Mackerel, Salmon, Poached Salmon, Poached Salmon In A White Wine Sauce, Salmon-monia, and Helen Shapiro. This last name, their favorite, had to be dropped following an injunction and they split up again. When they reformed after a recordbreaking two days, they ditched the fishy references and became Dead Monkeys, a name which they stuck with for the rest of their careers. Now, a fortnight later, they've finally split up.

I don't buy it:  never seeing the interviewer you have no idea that is what she was actually saying.

I laughed out loud at that segment.

A friend of mine went to Cochella.  Next time I see her I'm gonna ask her if she liked Get the Fark Out of my Pool.

Just goes to show that some hipsters aren't there for the bands...they're just there for the free drugs, the drunk chicks flashing their tits and to be seen.

I only listen to bands whose members haven't even been born yet. I was a huge fan of Boom-Boom & The Gherklewhizzes, but they became total sell outs when came out of their mom's vaginas.

Her'es the updated definition:

hip·ster [hip-ster] noun Slang. 1. person who says he's there to see Metric, The Postal Service, Blur and The Stone Roses, but won't admit he's really there to see tits he'll never get to touch in a million years and keep screaming at Modest Mouse play "Float On", like those idiots that yell for "Freebird" at Skynyrd concerts.

No shiat, and they are shiatty actors. They should have acted at least a bit confused rather than totally enthusiastic about the fake bands.
 
2013-04-23 12:07:32 PM  
I'd rather pretend to like a fake band than admit that I paid money to see Gaslight Anthem, the Lumineers, Vampire Weekend, James Blake, or Franz Ferdinand.

I'd love to see Kurt Vile, but he's much more suited to a dark bar than out in the daylight.  It would ruin the mood.  The Oh Sees are cool as well if you like straight up rock.

Also, Red Hot Chili Peppers?  Does anyone want to see fiftysomethings play pop radio tunes?

Isn't Two Door Cinema Club a real band though?

This. I used to be a fan, but they should have called it quits after their last album with John.

If seeing the "Red Hot Chili Peppers in concert" actually meant watching Frusciante and Flea just doing bizarro prog noodling for 90 minutes, then I'd might go.

I forgot how good Flea can be until I heard his work with The Mars Volta.

I like it when everyone likes the bands that I like.  I think it's a way to be culturally relevant.  Don't you like to listen to relevant music?  You should.  You don't want to be irrelevant.

I'm a self admitted old fart, but I only wish this generation would do something to scare and confuse me.   Instead it's just boring crass commercialism and empty marketing.

I lived in Austin when SXSW first started as a way to showcase unsigned local bands since we were so far far removed from the LA and NYC scene.   Now it's transformed nothing more than a promotion and marketing expo targeting the 24-39 demo, as corporations unveil their newest light beer or auto line to a group of bloggers and new media "tastemakers" who only showed up to scavenge for free food and drinks.

I just hit a saturation point in my late teens-early 20's where I would listen to them all the time. Now, I can barely stand any of their songs.

I dunno, maybe you're just cool.  What I mean is, I'm sure that Odd Future scares a whole lot of people - people that you'd never hang out with - people that take Odd Future seriously or actually like it.

I saw them on their last tour and I almost cried when I thought back to some of their shows I saw in the late 80's.

I'm 31 and I'm too old for that shiat. Hell, I was too old for it at 21. I require a comfortable place to nurse my hang overs and a break between drinking events. Plus, my skin can't tolerate so much time in the sun. Plus, I probably like only like 2-4 new artists every decade, so this wouldn't suit me at all.

So stop. No more doing what I don't like.
