Re: Is indiepop racist?

I'm going to add a PS here, just because I'm aware how blunt things can sometimes sound on the internet. I agree with 99.99% of the above comments, and if indiepop or any other scene are experienced as exclusionary, as I've already said we should do whatever we can about that, which is obviously mor...

Re: Is indiepop racist?

I can't help but have many seeds of prejudice, misunderstanding, stereotypes, fear and even some kind of feeling of superiority planted inside my brain. I don't want it to be there, but it's there. I'm not sure if that's officially called 'racist'. It probably doesn't really matter either, I suppos...

Re: Is indiepop racist?

As far as confronting racism in indiepop goes, it's very difficult to confront something you never see. Many of us white people seem to believe that if we just don’t talk about or think about race, then we are not racist. Because we're good, well-meaning people. But every white person alive today b...

Re: Records of 2015

Wetdog have announced a third album . It's been 5 years at least. The Erase Errata album is pretty great. Sleater Kinney is good too. Darren Hayman wins for best concept album, obviously. Looking forward to the Sacred Paws EP, Tigercats, and probably others I've forgotten. Also The Hurriers, not ind...

Re: Candy Twist

I often find myself thinking what a great compilation "Nobody's Business" was, and how good it would be if Dennis was inspired to put together a Volume 2. So I've written that thought down on the internet. And I stand by it.

Re: Odd Box

I just called to say how much I'm enjoying the new-ish Wolfhounds album. I know it's a compilation of singles going back a couple of years but the songs (and the band tbh) are new to me. Tunes and lyrics to return to.

Why isn't the Odd Box thread in the Indiepop section, hmm?

Re: Sleater-Kinney!

So what do people reckon? I think it's a pretty good record. Y'know, it sounds like an album released by a rock group. Reminds me a bit of Wild Flag, anyone remember them?

Re: McCarthy

Let's say I have this friend, who already has the 'Enraged..' and '..Wallet' CDs with the extras, the original 'Banking..' CD and the That's All Very Well comp, and needs convincing that the other bits are worth the money in the difficult pre-C***tmas period.

What would you say to him, Daniel?

Re: Venues we have loved (and perhaps lost)

The Buffalo Bar petition has reached 3500: not bad for 2 days! Even if it doesn't save the venue it has achieved something important already: it says to the people who run the Buffalo Bar that we give a shit about them losing their jobs at Christmas, and it registers a protest about the cultural van...

Re: The Go-Go's/Jane Wiedlin/Belinda Carlisle

I've got 'Fur' on cassette somewhere. I bought it probably 15 years ago, for 'Rush Hour' of course, but I remember the rest of it being bloody awful, and never listened to it more than once. You should probably give all albums more of a chance than that, but on the other hand if there was ever a gen...
