I was waiting my grandmother having her permanent haircut done, at her hairdresser salon, when I read the following news on a magazine about hairdresser's equipment:

The Lost Prophets are working on a new project. It will be called
"The Lost Prophets - The Last Shit".


Haha, sorry! I had to throw shit on them, they absolutely deserved it.
What a big bag of average crap are they??? Massive!

I don't wanna repeat myself here.. but.. If all these "emowhatever" bands were at least inspired by good ORIGINALS, like MANSUN, maybe today's teenagers were into a very creative movement, inspired by the music of their idols more than just the moves and the clothes...

I mean.. Poor little teenagers, carrying their guitars so proudly, as their "communication guns" against a bad world..
And then? Then if you ask them who are their idols, they would probably say "Good Charlotte"...

What a world..
One thing is to say "I'm in a band and my idols are The Lost Prophets" (or The Libertines, hahaha)
...and one thing is to say: "I'd like so much to play some good rock and my idols are Guns N' Roses" :)

There are not lots of "music foundations" for our sweet blind teenagers...
I hate the "cheap fashionisation" of music today. Music IS not for everybody. Young people, inspired by crappy bands, should do something else, play a sport for example. Not filling the world with chang chang weak music or american wanna be from london "punk shit".

GRRRR

Grrr...

It's not fair to pick out today's generation and say "oh, everything is shit nowadays". There were people around in the early '90's who'd tell you the music scene back then was shit too. You only remember the good stuff from certain parts of music - memory sweeps the crap away.

I personally think Kurt Cobain was an overrated, tone-deaf hick who couldn't piece two decent chords together or write a single original lyric without resorting to stupid discontented-teenage-juvenilia. Yet some think Nirvana were the best thing throughout the '90's.

All those stupid stoners in the '70's ruined the music industry. In the '60's, something was bought and played because it was good. Since the '70's, idiots+hype=success - and the genuinely classic albums from Terry Reid's 1973 album "River" to Nine Inch Nail's 1994 "The Downward Spiral" - they've all been pushed aside while the Ziggy Stardust's and the Nirvana's were lapped up by the idiots. It's the way it is.

Kurt Cobain
You know that he is alive ?
The suicide was a trick to sell more CD.
This world is going nowhere.

Hey!!! I like David Bowie!! And I think HE was the best thing that happened back then! And his style inspired many artists,as our loving Marilyn Manson ( )..
Personally,I like more his newest stuff,but ok..
I never cared for Nirvana,so,that's ok..

Quite frankly, I’m sick of the Manson-Bowie link thing. The only album Manson did that sounded remotely similar to anything Bowie did was Mechanical Animals, but even then it was more Pink Floyd-ish than anything else (“The Speed Of Pain”). And Bowie certainly never made anything like Antichrist Superstar. I’m actually listening to an interview Manson gave way back in 1990. Just a moment ago he was listing the people-groups who had “an effect” on him musically while growing up. The one he spends most time discussing is Charles Manson.

People often bring up the point of the changing images, but Bowie was hardly the first to drastically change his image from time to time. Look back as far as the 1910s-20s, and you’d see how even Billie Holiday liked to mess around with her appearance quite often.

Don’t get me wrong - I do see myself as a Bowie fan too. I just can’t emphasize enough the total overrated-ness of Ziggy Stardust. Scary Monsters and Aladdin Zane are by far the superior albums. Even Scary Monsters-era non-album tracks (most notibly Crystal Japan) wipe their shit all over the majority of the stuff on Ziggy Starfust.

And Terry Reid's "River" is the ignored gem of the '70s. It's one of the most beautiful albums I've ever heard. Comparing Ziggy Stardust and River - there's no contest ...

The Downward Spiral wasn't pushed aside (nor should it have been)....it's often noted as one of the most influential albums of the 90s, especially for the genre.

And what about Ace of Base? Their genius is all but forgotten...

that's so right. i hear so many people nagging about the current rap/r'n'b stuff 13-year-olds listen to nowadays. i get what they mean, but weren't we the same back then? i mean, i listened to charts stuff from 2 unlimited, culture beat or reel to real which sounds crab nowadays if you're honest, but it's still loaded with good memories for me.
still my taste has changed and i think it's unfair to believe that kids listening to chart stuff now will never discover good music!

Not really though. In terms of influence, Nirvana's Nevermind and maybe The Smashing Pumpkin's Siamese Dream had a far superior effect on the music scene back then. And as far as the "genre" thing goes - most people in the industrial genre despise NIN. They'd tell you NIN simplified everything about industrial music. When you listen to Skinny Puppy or Ministry or early KMFDM, it's obvious The Downward Spiral is more pop-based than anything else in the industrial genre. TDS being more pop-based in structure and melody isn't a bad thing - it's the reason why it's so good - but the people who were prominent in the industrial scene during NIN's heyday would tell you industrial is supposed to be the total extreme of pop.

I hear ya Emilianino, I once went to see a mini festival of 3 or 4 bands and one of those bands was The Lost Prophets. I had never heard of them before and was hoping for a nice surprise, but they came on stage and I just had to laugh.

I think the best bands are the ones who dont take themselves so seriously, just do thier thing without any of this posing around.

bottom line is, they suck and thats all there is to it! ; )
