Cannot stand this aggro white boy shit or anything like it. I need to listen to more Sleaford Mods.

it's fool's gold. But some of the rhythm section isn't awful.
I had to deal with a bartender singing all of the lyrics at me upon first listen , so that didn't help either.

I think this is where I'm at with them now too, having revisited the albums. Some songs are better than others, the highs are fairly high, but some of the lyrics and delivery just bother me (though to be fair, some are pretty good too). The Dropkick Murphys choruses.. ugh, completely ruin some songs for me. I'll probably stick some of the better tracks on a playlist and move on. But they seem like their hearts are in the right place and I'm happy they're out there doing what they want and that people seem to really like them.

IDLES are a band of confounding levels of quality. Complete waffles. Maybe I'd catch them live some time if in the right mood, their shows look fun.

Jesus Lizard for young trendy British people who have never heard the Jesus Lizard. Lots of contrived antics.

Crap.

I'd say that sounds kinda not crap.



I know very little of this band and what I've heard doesn't sound much like Jesus Lizard. But I'm here because I saw a bit of their Glatsonbury set in which the vocalist was visibly moved by the reception they were getting (and playing there, I guess) and while he was standing in a middle of the stage all teary eyed and unable to sing his wife ran to the middle stage to hug and kiss him and that was so utterly sweet and touching I'm 100% comfortable voting NC based on just that.

I don’t understand. He was crying to the point that he couldn’t sing because he was so surprised/ mesmerized that the audience liked what he was doing?

Gratitude? Emotion? That's nerd shit! What an asshole!

They're not doing anything mindblowing but seem like they've got their hearts in the right places. I'd still take em over the endless stream of noise rock bands that folks here seem to love. At least they can write a memorable song instead of thinking their guitar tone will make up for it ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
