GREYHOUND REVIEWS????

KO 22 Aug 2006 14:57

so i am a regular at indie initiative, at least i get down whan i can... point is i saw the vedettes on fri 10th and thought they were something great and thay got a really bad review. now i know everyone can have their own opion but someone who slags off a band cause the singer put on a british accent and doesnt stop and think that he might actually be british(which he is)doesnt deserve to say anything cause he must be very small minded. and that goes for all the reviews that night. also oasis were told they sounded too much like the beatles.... look how far they got.</title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div></title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div>

G'day KO,
I wrote that review, and while I can appreciate that you might disagree with what I wrote, I don't understand why you would say things that are fairly plainly untrue.

You claimed that The Vedettes "got a really bad review". Meanwhile, here's what I said about them:
"The Vedettes didn't have much of an audience, which is a shame since tonight was their EP launch, besides which they played some really solid songs. Two of the band members bore a freakish resemblance to members of Oasis, with rock star sunnies featuring prominently. Circumstances were rendered weirder when the lead singer came out with an English accent, and the band proceeded to play eerily familiar Brit-pop. These chaps had some good and genuine talent, but they need to forge their own path."

I don't understand how that could come across as a "really bad review." I actually rather enjoyed their set, after I got over the phenomenal similarity between them and Oasis in terms of their music and image.

If you read closely, you'll also find that I never claimed that the singer put on a British accent - that was an assumption.

Finally, I find it rather frustrating that you would take your disagreement with what I had to say about one band and generalise it to "all the reviews that night".

I feel I can explain myself - can you?</title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div></title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div>

all im saying is that is that yes, they may be like oasis but every single band in the world dresses like and sounds similar too their influences. for example if you see a band that has keys, flutes, violins and dress like nothing you've ever seen... have a look at who their idols are and im sure you wont see too much different. it just so happens that because everyone knows oasis that this band gets the tag. reason i said it goes for all the review is because of "Circumstances were rendered weirder when the lead singer came out with an English accent". to me i think that comment shouldnt have been written but i may have been blowing off a little steam with my "all the reviews that night" comment. with the "bad review" thing i do think it was. it sounded as though you were having a go at them. sorry if thats not how you meant it to come out but thats how i took it. in a way they are actually doing something different bring back brit-pop, i mean all you hear these days is indie/dance bollocks and average pop/rock.</title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div></title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div>

My opinion,
I must admit, the review written wasnt really a slagging! Anyway, he's there to write a review and his opinion is welcomed, that's the whole point... However, being in a band myself, it's never good to read anything negative about your band, no matter how insignificant (or your mates band or whatever). But that's just the way it is! If you cant deal with it, choose another job. Not every gig or cd review will be glowing....
Anyway, we all know Oasis went to America and totally fucked up. Who cares when you go on to rule the "rest" of the world. As for The Beatles, Decca rejected them before George Martin saw them.......
As for the Vedettes, I listened to their Myspace. I happen to love The Beatles & Oasis. The stuff sounds similar but who gives a fuck. I dig the stuff and they're cool songs. You guys do it well, keep rockin.</title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div></title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div>
