The Booze

Here's a really good band that I saw live recently I know most wouldn't be familiar with. It gives me hope that there still are decent bands out there...just not many.

Re: The Booze

my god, could their heads be any further up the rolling stones' asses?

Not saying it's bad, but there's not a shred of originality there.

I hear you but that's just their new album and honestly I think it suits them better than their older music, although I like this a lot too.

Re: The Booze

a little too mellow for me, but some "rock" is better than no "rock".

These guys aren't doing anything for me, but statements like that really rub me the wrong way. If you think there aren't many decent bands out there, then you're either not looking hard enough or you're entirely too picky. I know music is highly subjective and all, but there really is something out there for everyone.

Oooh they're burning a copy of SPIN. They're such rebels.

Agreed. There really is good music out there, you just have to look hard for it.

why should that rub you the wrong way when it's my opinion? I think most music these days is absolute trash not worth listening to. There really are not many bands out there I like at all. I could name you a list of like under 10 at the most. I'd probably have a lot of trouble listing those 10 if I'm going to exclude bands that aren't young anymore as well.

You can say what you will about these guys but they are not playing music that's going to appeal to masses of people. They're keeping 60s rock alive, touring out of a van making next to nothing and I appreciate that. You don't know how many bands these days aren't aware of anything musically other than Green Day, Blink 182 or whatever other mainstream garbage to follow after. It's refreshing to see bands like this.

I'm not saying this as some old man rant either, I'm in my 20s. If that's being picky yeah count me in.

I just don't understand why someone would choose to be bitter about how bad music supposedly is these days when they have the internet at their disposal to discover any number of bands that could strike a chord with them. If you're happy harboring grudges against a couple of goofy pop-punk bands and railing against "mainstream garbage," then more power to you. I'd rather spend my time checking out new music with the hopes that I'll find my next favorite among all the noise. Yeah, I'll end up listening to a lot of total shit in the process, but that's part of the fun of it, in my opinion.

Anyway, I don't mean this to sound totally confrontational or anything. I wasn't trying to put this band down, they just didn't do anything for me. In the interest of keeping the discussion positive, I'll give a peace offering. Since you seem to enjoy 60s-tinged garage rock, I've been really digging King Khan & The Shrines lately. Maybe it'll click with you, maybe it won't.

Re: The Booze

I listen to tons of new bands including King Khan which I'm not a fan of. Honestly there's so much older obscure stuff to discover I'm a lot more excited about that usually because it's mostly quality. I'm not harboring grudges or whatever I just don't like the current music scene, nothing more. Some garage revival type stuff has always sucked, look at the fuzztones or for a more modern band the horrors. Why listen to that shit when I could go to the real deal? It is pretty much an endless pit of music if you really start getting into it.

Re: The Booze

Not bad, but I'll listen to the Rolling Stones for my Rolling Stones fix. He sings like Iggy though.

If there were no more new music released ever again, there would be more than enough music to explore for 10 lifetimes.
