Hey @Robin_Close I think @mrjez has been nicking our records. YES


#6047

Clearly mine


#6048

No. always hated that singing style, utterly horrid.


#6049

Such bias…I think if you listen carefully, you will find that mine is clearly the more superior version

(and that’s a totally unbiased opinion)


#6050

Nup


#6051

What was the other one?

I’ve seen them and really enjoyed it just for the record.

Yes


#6052

The Vines. No contest.


#6053

Wow that’s a surprise. Does the singer lack engagement with the audience?


#6054

4-2

Cheers for putting up a region-friendly video. Turns out I can’t watch your one.


#6055

It was just all wrong. His voice was shocking, and virtually inaudible. The band was all over shop… I think they got thrust into the spotlight way before they should have. They could barely play yet.

Be interesting to see if they improved.


#6056

Other than the singer (who is a loose cannon of the highest order), are there any other of the original Vines left?

Yes to PIL.

P.S. worst band I saw was Big Audio Dynamite, by the length of the Flemington straight… utterly ■■■■…


#6057

I thought it might have to do with the singers aspbergers syndrome but it sounds like that they were all a bit of a mess.


#6058

I honestly have no idea. I dropped them pretty quickly after seeing them live, and never paid much more attention.

I still rate Highly Evolved as an album, though.


#6059

Pop will Eat Itself for mine but U2 for the most overrated big stadium setup at the MCG echo chanber that was awful. Sounded better when we left and heard a couple of songs walking home.


#6060

Listened to U2 from outside the venue at both MCG and Waverley. Sounded great - far better than inside by all accounts. Beers (from our esky) were far cheaper too…


#6061

Oh yeah, Ratcat (who I like on record) supporting The Buzzcocks. Lol, ordinary live band from Sydney come to Melbourne to support one of the all time great punk bands. Lame!


#6062

You did well. Much cheaper and much better sound.


#6063

I never saw Ratcat but heard they never came off too good live once they got thrust into larger venues.


#6064

Well, they didn’t exactly have a varied repertoire, did they? A couple of great tracks, but the very embodiment of a one-trick pony. I was reminded of that fact when I saw them at Day On The Green a few years ago. Very samey over 30-odd minutes… a lot of interchangeable mid-paced, clean verse/fuzzy chorus songs in 4/4 finished by Don’t Go Now and That Ain’t Bad.


#6065

In a recent podcast interview Simon said they started out really trying to sound like Buzzcocks.
