I just don’t understand or like any of the New York Manhatten 70s bands :x
Velvet Underground & Lou Reed are the ONLY exception
But I just don’t get The Ramones, New York Dolls, The Stooges, Blondie, or Patti Smith.
All my favorite English bands rant and rave about them and I’m just like ??!?
I feel like I’m missing something?! lol What is everyone hearing that I’m not?
I feel similarly about punk, I have some appreciation for the 70s english punk scene, definitely more so than the 70s manhatten bands… It was fantastic when I was 15 but I just can’t deal with it anymore lol maybe I’m getting old idk.
Like I went to a ska concert last night and a violent mosh pit happened and it @#$%ing crazy and I got pushed a millon miles away and there was people crowdsurfing and falling and crushing people. I had not been to a show like that since I was a teenager haha I’ve seen some punky bands in my day though and was similar to that. but damn. I don’t miss it at all.
I just have so more appreciation for melody, style, the jangle and master musicianship. Johnny Marr, The Edge, Jimmy Page, Mick Ronson, Marc Bolan have ruined me for music forever.
Just a reminder that boots cosmetics were stopping their line on the red lipstick that Robert Smith used back in the 80s so he literally and desperately went to every boots in the uk and bought every single one they had left.
I had a project to make an app design layout for my graphic design class
naturally I make a concert/band app. duh.
but it accidently& Inevitably became centered around Johnny Marr & The Smiths lol
like for the tour tab it’s Johnny Marr’s tour dates, the music tab shows Johnny Marr’s new album that you can pre-order & listen to, the promo tab with interviews is Johnny Marr, the music video tab is a screenshot of “Easy Money” by Johnny Marr, and even the background on the main menu and login is The Smiths.
guess what I’m wearing for the presentation/critique? my johnny Marr shirt lol
ALSO I just had an assignment to illustration 3 pieces of art based on a SONG
petition to start a classic rock fandom convention called ClassicRockCon where we all cosplay as our favorite musicians and shit and buy band merch and fan art and have kiosks for mods and rockers and hippies and there’s a bunch of vinyl and vinyl care kits and battle of the bands and old rockstars come for expos
I call them concerts lol
But yes please I will still sign this petition because that would be perfect
