Then again I listen to Morrissey and The Smiths (who were mentioned in the book Trainspotting), who'd make most of ya wee doss radge c*nts shite a brick if you saw him live or had to listen to his tunes anywhere, so what do I know? :-P Oh, and I'm half Scottish, so I'm allowed to say this shite, likesay ken?

As someone who's a big fan of both and has seen neither live - what an awesome bill. If anyone here attends that show, consider me envious. Must be a dream come true for Waltham as well (unless they've already played with him). PS - Has Andrew ever tried to get Waltham to play Melodic Rock Fest? Considering he's such a big fan, just curious. Though I'm not sure how far they travel to play

All that said (in my post above), doesn't excuse the Brothers Gallagher from being cunts sometimes, though. Just like anyone that rips on Ed for BS reasons is a bloody cunt in my book. Hey, no offense intended...just read...er, interpreted the Scottish novel Trainspotting (loved the movie for years) and all that slang and dialect is still stuck in my head :-) So I can't be held responsible

Agreed...he's not my normal cup of tea and I admit it was a teen who got me into him, but at least Ed seems like a true musician who writes/plays/sings his own songs. And I don't care what anyone says - "Lego House" is a bloody brilliant pop song. So catchy. Maybe its just that human nature thing of people hating anything that's popular or that the "kids" seem to like t

Thanks, Tony. But yeah, that's the same search stuff that came up for me before I made my topic. I see a post from Nick saying how awesome they are, but that's about it...everyone else were mostly just saying how they ordered the CD and were waiting for it to come ::shrugs::

I realize I'll probably get crucified for this, but...::gets up nerve::...any fans of Morrissey here? ::ducks:: Anyone checked out his latest album - World Peace is None of Your Business? If not, its almost the New Year, so just forget this topic ever existed, along with all other unpleasant memories from this past year, ok? ;-) I'll admit, I didn't think much of him when I was younge

Hey, could you link me to some of those old topics here about The Radio Sun? Its not that I don't believe you, so apologies if it came out that way, but when I searched the Noticeboard archives, like I said, I really couldn't find much :-/ Read your interview with Steve - very cool. Cool to see he's such a big Paul Laine fan. As I mentioned before, he and I really do seem to have very simil

Thanks for the reply. Though...yeah, before I posted my topic, I checked the Noticeboard archives for other topics and didn't find much. I think one topic started by a guy who'd ordered his CD and was waiting to receive it, asking Andrew if it had shipped yet or something like that, but not much else. Maybe I didn't try the right search criteria, but I didn't know what else to try besides &quo

Surprised to not see more topics on these guys, since they're signed to Andrew's label. Great Aussie melodic rock/power pop. Debut album Wrong Things Right picks up right where previous band Square One left off musically. Possibly even catchier, great hooks. Lyrics are a little more direct than Square One, less abstract, stream of consciousness quirkiness (which I kinda liked, but oh well).

Yeah, I mentioned in my first post about Noelle's solo electro career. Didn't realize The Organ Beats (you meant them, not Damone, right?) had broken up. That sucks, since I really enjoyed their Goldenheart album...such a step up in terms of songwriting and production from the first one. Noelle's solo work isn't quite there either IMO, for the most part, though "Waiting For October"

Yeah, the 2nd Damone album was great. I liked their other 2 albums as well, though the first definitely had a different style. More power pop, but I liked it. Sounded a bit like the band Waltham (big surprise, since Frank Pino was in both lol). Anyway, I was kicking myself after my original Organ Beats post since I forgot to post any Damone songs for the people who might not have heard abou

Interesting to hear that more than one of you kind of stopped listening after When All That's Left is You and are just now giving them another chance (glad I could help!). Since as I said above, the one thing I can say most about them is they've been incredibly consistent throughout their career. New album every couple years, each one with almost no filler...its criminal they're not bigger than

If anyone feels slighted on Christmas gifts and wants to take a chance on some music, here's The Organ Beats. From Waltham...same place as a certain other band that gets talked about around here ;-) Female fronted rock band featuring Noelle, formerly of Damone. Damone was a band founded by Dave Pino, who also co-founded the band Waltham. Still with me? lol The Organ Beats' latest studio al

Sorry I'm late replying. Had to get up the nerve and come down from the tree...I'm more of a cat person ;-) I have no idea what spotify.to is lol Just kind of stumbled on it by accident when I was creating this topic and I was looking for some way to link the Japanese/leaked version of the album. To be honest, I'm surprised I found anything. I know what Spotify is...yes, its like Grooveshark

Quietdrive recently released their latest album, The Ghost of What You Used To Be. I've seen posts about them here in the past...not sure if any of you still follow them, but just in case, figured I'd post about them here. The album actually leaked this past summer (or that's when I found out about it), since it was released in Japan back then with a different track listing. The US version

Got into this NYC Power Pop singer-songwriter earlier this year. Best known for his work in indie films such as Happiness, American Splendor, and The Tao of Steve (title tracks for each and more). He and indie filmmaker Todd Solondz (Happiness, Dark Horse, Welcome to the Dollhouse) seem to be pretty tight, as Eytan's always personally thanked in the end credits and he even has a cameo in Happin

Brian was also in an alt country/power pop band called The Keepers. Was trying to think of their name when I made my original post, to maybe link some of their music too, but it eluded me. Oh well, better late than never. Think of them as FOW meets Wilco's more commercial side. Don't think they ever had an official release either, but "Baby Tonight" is catchy as hell, demo or not:

Marianas Trench were amazing live. Josh Ramsay is one of the few dudes (at least these days, in terms of "newer" bands coming out) who can sing as good live as in the studio. What I don't get is how a band like Simple Plan (who are a guilty pleasure of mine, don't get me wrong, great pop-rock hooks) or Nickelback (some good songs, but mostly ugh) can come out of Canada and be huge i

Didn't see any topics promoting these guys, so I figured I'd give 'em a mention. Kinda stumbled on them by accident last year. New Zealand modern pop-rock band Paper Plane. Fronted by Nathan King (solo, ex-Zed). The Aussies and Kiwis are near neighbors (right?), so I wonder if Andrew's heard of him/them? :-) Their sound basically picks up where Nathan's solo album "The Crowd" lef

No one will ever have all the artists they want inducted (and all the artists they don't want not inducted lol), its just a fact of life and a matter of personal taste. Def Lep may never get in, since many in the mainstream and many critics as well consider them just another hair band. Or, at best, a "safe", mainstream pop-rock band. I know, its ridiculous, but that's how institution

Oh!!! Forgot to say, but for the lyrics of "Pop 101", that "some things just go together like higher, desire, and fire" line really cracked me up. What a song. Brilliant pop music satire while also just being a brilliantly catchy pop song. But yeah, that line reminded me of discussions we've had here about certain cliched lyric couplets (is that the word?) in "our&quo

Been into these Canadian pop-rockers since 2010. Debut album was ok, definitely their most hard rocking but save for a few songs somewhat lacking in hooks IMO. 2nd album Masterpiece Theatre was a Queen influenced pop-rock MONSTER concept album/rock opera...still one of my all time top albums. Follow-up Ever After drifted more towards pop than rock, but still a HUGE pop smash concert album/rock

Loving this CD. Much better than Hope, which I never really warmed to save a few songs. Faves are probably Garden of Eden, Whatever It Takes, All I Need, and Never Say Never. Was hoping for a bit more of a Rubber, power pop-esque sound based on Andrew's review and certain other comments, but still, I can't really complain. To whoever said that its almost like they've gained momentum due to

Anyone who was into The Crash Moderns or just appreciates great power pop music needs to check this out. Waking Heroes, led by ex-TCM singer Danny Roselle.

Let me take that back...forget "Hopeless". Was kind of kidding. How about "Starlight" (Jesus, originally wrote "Stardust", had to go back and edit lol) by Harem Scarem from their Human Nature album? Now THAT was a monster of a song IMO. Very hopeful thematically and one I could definitely relate to.

For fans of Enuff Z'nuff and power pop/punk music, Johnny Monaco put out an EP earlier this year called LA Vacation. Not sure what his current Enuff Z'nuff status is (he's sang lead and played lead guitar for them), can't keep up with those guys, but I've loved his solo output ever since his (totally underrated lol) Overrated CD from 2007. Excellent slice of modern power pop/punk. Prefer his m
