Re: At The Drive-In reform (maybe)

Not really a big ATDI fan, but I don't see any problem at all in reunions, if It's a band I'm too young to have ever seen, then why not? I've seen a few of my favourite bands (unbroken, trial, disembodied, shikari, my bloody valentine, slint, the mob, ink and dagger) at reunion shows and they all smashed it.

You don't remember me...........do you.

Re: At The Drive-In reform (maybe)

I think when big bucks and egos are involved its a totally different story.

you still bore me...

Re: At The Drive-In reform (maybe)

firm believer in the opinion that i didn't write their records, therefore it isn't my call to say "a decade later you can't play these songs even if you want to genuinely just for a laugh". people have such a fucking weird sense of entitlement about music.

that refused dvd is properly shit though.

This a thousand times!

According to Wikipedia Cedric is now a Scientologist.

Re: At The Drive-In reform (maybe)

Cool I am excited about the chance to see them, they split up just before I was starting to go to shows.

They never made a big fuss about splitting up, it was just announced one day that they were going on hiatus (or was it indefinite hiatus) and that was that. I can see why people wouldnt want to go, it wont be the same as back in the day, but I am definitely curious. As long as it isnt really expensive like some of the ATP things are, I could only justify My Bloody Valentine for those prices

I don't think anybody is instructing them with what they can and cannot do. That'd be a bit silly.

On the other hand, laughing at them, and openly not giving a shit is totally fine.

Re: At The Drive-In reform (maybe)

not really aimed at anyone in this thread, or what i was getting at, but whatever. basically my point was people always kneejerk about reformations being the worst thing in music, when really it's not your call that 4 or 5 people 400 miles away fancied playing some songs potentially once or twice. it's not exactly peter hook doing 'unknown pleasures' by himself, is it?

i loathe the stone roses and don't care they've reformed, i'm not looking for a medal for it though. in saying that, i would wear that.

Re: At The Drive-In reform (maybe)

Its an odd one. Possibly something in the "punk" mindset about being affiliated, or taking something to heart. Like in the case of refused making so much hay about disassociation and not wanting to participate as reasons for the breakup, then apaprently disregarding it all. I think it's fine to make fun of them for something like that. I'm not fussed personally, but I can see why people might be up in arms about it. I guess if you identify in something, then you feel betrayed a little shade perhaps?

At the Drive in though, who cares. I assume that as with refused, they'll be looking at bigger venues and payouts than the descendants were, and they did pretty well.

Re: At The Drive-In reform (maybe)

A lot of people who claim not to give a shit really seem to give a shit about not giving a shit.

Re: At The Drive-In reform (maybe)

some give a shit that the reason its being done is shit and others are too shit to see it.

you still bore me...

Re: At The Drive-In reform (maybe)

Who knows, maybe they'll be able to recapture some of the almost mythical integrity being bestowed upon them by the non-shit-givers that they apparently had back in Jools Holland days?

Re: At The Drive-In reform (maybe)

maybe it was Jools who put em up to it too???

Perhaps he's dying to reachout to the late-20's early 30's market (the now grown up who liked ATDI first time round) for ratings and to teach them appreciation of his boogie woogie piano accompaniment? He's hoping to join in and show you all just how fantabulous he really is....

you still bore me...

Re: At The Drive-In reform (maybe)

Were they any good back then?

Zero tolerance on reformations (apart from Coalesce who happened to be really good).

on a related note, both to coalesce and band reunions, it seems casket lottery are playing again, where's the thread for that? :  http://lambgoat.com/news/17516/The-Cask … Sleep-Recs

correct.

Still conflicted about this, but in a non cliche way also, hearing ATDI on Lamaq live had a pretty huuuggee influence on my life, seeing as it got me, and quite a few of my pals into punk rock and showed that there was a lot more to punk than Mohawks and terrible ska, which was all over the place at the time. Say what you want, but for kids my age (who are the ones losing their shit on facebook every other status) there were kinda "our band" way before we were aware of scenes and stuff I guess. The step from ATDI even at their most pop to mid 90s emo and Fugazi and stuff is minuscule.

They did also, for better or worse, make being "spazzy" and "pop" cool. (worse)

My god you are boring. Give it a rest.

I take it you were born listening to judge in one ear and youth of today in the other I take it?

Re: At The Drive-In reform (maybe)

not quite... you shouldnt make assumptions chump.

give what a rest? I was merely stating 3 truths from recent observations. If you found a correlation in there, well done. I know i did and its a useful way to acknowledge a painstakingly obvious difference in tastes. No woopee.

The only diss in there was of that fuckwitt Steve Lamaq who can't complete a single sentance without using the 'er' half a dozen times... How did he make it onto the radio? obviously not for his taste in music.

you still bore me...

Re: At The Drive-In reform (maybe)

Yeah it's true that ATD-I will probably be enjoying some fat wads while smoking blunts, sipping brandy and buying stock with Refused.

But then there will also be a bunch of people having a seriously rad time at the gigs too who probably don't care.

And, as history has shown time and time again, NOTHING will stop you lot wanking on about it all on here.

So all in all another situation where everyone emerges happy, no?
