Hello and welcome to the inaugural edition of Myspace Round-Up! What the hell am I talking about? Well, so far my little blog has been a little too gushy about the records i've reviewed so far. The reason being of course is that until people/bands/record labels start sending me crap to review I can only review the records I buy and well, I usually enjoy that stuff.
I'm not sure if this is true for everyone but I get a lot of unsolicited friends requests on my Myspace page. I get too kinds: 1. Profiles of sexy ladies who don't exist and 2. Shitty bands who think that they'll get famous by sending everyone on Myspace a friends request. I usually ignore these band's requests because my thinking is "If they were any good I would've already heard of them". So I was thinking that this might cause a diamond in the rough to slip through the cracks once in a while, so NO MORE! From now on when I get enough requests from bands that want to be my friend, i'll check them out and report my findings to you, my loyal reader(s).
One more thing, if I like the band/artist I will add them to my friends list and if I hate them they fail. LOLZ.
Okay, here we go!
La Muneca Y Los Muertos
Their band name is Spanish for "The High Point Of Our Careers Will Be Playing The Local Stage At Warped Tour." FAIL.
I like PJ Harvey too Penny, but you don't see me making half-assed imitations of her songs do you? FAIL.
This guy is such a fucking hippie he makes The Grateful Dead sound like Slayer. FAIL.
This sounds like every bad Alt-Country band i've ever heard, all at the same time. FAIL.
Imagine if The Goo Goo Dolls made a really overproduced emo record. With vocoder. FAIL.
Goddamn, more PJ Harvey wannabes. These guys are probably the best group of the bunch i've listened to so far but that's only because I like female vox with brit accents. FAIL.
Ever imagined what Coldplay would sound like if they all got castrated? FAIL.
These guys seem like the type of band who would win a contest to open for a band like The Foo Fighters and they'd be totally stoked to party with Dave Grohl and when they introduce themselves he just ignores them and walks away. FAIL.
If you consider yourself a Graver (Goth Raver) you'll totally eat this shit up. Everyone else, you'll just shit. FAIL.
If it were 1983 these guys might be able to get laid. FAIL.
Wow, that was even more tragic than I thought it would be. Not even one winner.
And just remember folks, I tear down other people's attempts at art because i'm dead inside and am incapable of love.
