i dont like this kind of music that much but the reason i started the thread is kuz i think, eventhough keane is a new band that is bearly getting started they play very well thats why i am comparing them with coldplay because they use a similar way to sing just as Coldplay but i am not saying that keane are better than cold play its just that they play and sing very well
in conclusion i think that if they could reach fame in least than a year just as Franz Ferdinand did, Then what could we expectin their (both keane & Franz) next album
They're not on here. Lets face it, the majority of people who like Keane are well...old, or older than the most of us in the music forum anyway. They're a boring easy listening band who are only successful because they've flown in on the back of all these other sub-Radiohead ''indie'' rock bands. Same applies for Snow Patrol, The Libertines, Coldplay, Franz Ferdinand etc etc. They all have the same basic set up and they are all just as boring in their individual ways.
In my humble opinion the only British bands around at the moment that are actually worth listening to are Porcupine Tree and The Wedding Present.
Prime example: Franz Ferdinand are superstars, Coldplay are superstars, Snow Patrol are doing well in the States it seems.
All these shit indie bands (our version of the Emo-Clone wars in the States) with the same sound-different name adage, don't get mentioned here because they're shit. Just because you're on your own liking The Libertines near enough, doesn't raise their credibility.
Radiohead arent even Indie are they? neway doesnt matter.
my opinion, Indie has been sucked into the fad-machine... itll be sucked in, bastardized and churned back out with a million more exact copies, if u wanna like them...then so be it, but recognise that there is alot more worth listening to out there

Why do you assume that because we don't like the oh-so dull British music scene right now we are all know nothing metalheads?
Metal makes about 30% of my musical preference, maybe less. And if you think newer metal is shit and unoriginal, you obviously haven't heard Dark Tranquility, Opeth, Meshuggah or Sevendust to name but four.
Did I say Radiohead were the first? Nope. Don't put words in my mouth. I said all these bands today are sub-Radiohead, sub meaning similar to, but inferior. Understand?
The Wedding Present are the only band in history to have had a single in the top 40 every month for one year, and had multiple songs in John Peel's festive 50's. They are big. Porcupine Tree aren't big because they are too creative and unique-sounding for the mainstream. If only they were to dress up in matching suits and ties, grow their hair into a matted mess, start taking cocaine and playing monotonous retro-rock, they'd become big. Silly them.
metal...long haired black wearing headbangers who disguise their lack of talent by sticking the distortion up full
not particularly accurate and just as pointless as your stereotypical image of indie bands
ive never seen oasis in matching suits...
the british music scene is better now than it has been for years...its just pity that where i live , the pubs are choked up with absolutely pish metal bands with very few bands making it out into a wider scene...snow patrol being one of them...and in fact formed no more than a stones throw from my front door
the cream always rises to the top...
you can also blame the clone wars that every music genre has on the record company bosses...
one company sees a band make it big and all the other companies want a nice big fat slice of the pie
That would do nothing but prove how little you really know.
This so-called ''indie'' is stereotypical in itself. As I said before it's all the same sub-Radiohead boredom fests, if there were some exceptions, and some of these bands were attention grabbing, I wouldn't say that. But there aren't. It's all so despairingly, depressingly dull. And I know, I have friends who listen to nothing but The Libertines and this other band with a female lead..I forget the name now. I've seen shows in various bars and it's flatline music.
would it now...well lets test that theory...i'll google image some of the metal bands that have been brought up an img them onto this post
meshuggah(please log in to view the image)
iced earth (please log in to view the image)
amon amarth (please log in to view the image)
shadows fall (please log in to view the image)
(please log in to view the image)
dark tranquility (please log in to view the image)
it has to be said...some of your choices are hardly dispelling any myths or destroying any stereotypes of the metal genre
this is the reason ive always found it pretty sad that people who listen to metal continuously take the piss out of "fashion victims" for always being dressed the same...when they all look the same as well
stereotypes...yes there are bands in the indie scene that fit the image you described...but dont try and defend metal based on a holier than thou image crusade and preach about them being all the same
You come at the King, you best not miss!
