Overpriced band T-Shirts? Bringing bubble mix to gigs? - Frames fans, or so I've heard, haven't been to a Frames gig in a while.

The guggenheim grotto are great, they have a previously released ep called a lifetime in heat which was released under kevin may's name and is a free down load on their website. Neosupervital rocks! As do the 66e. I'm going to the Ballroom gig on Friday just to see them cos I missed the gig in whelans. And yes the chapters are worth all the talk about them. An extremely tight band with great instrumentation and harmonies!

I haven't read this whole thread, but that never stops me from jumping in and stating the obvious. :) Someone made a comment about bands from the States not gaining as much popularity as they did in the 80's and 90's--I think one of the reasons for this is that in the 80's and 90's there weren't as many genres that were popular here as there are today. There's much more to choose from these days--country, hip hop, R&B, pop, rock, nu metal--so many genres it's no wonder there aren't huge blockbusters like there used to be. Someone also mentioned the Strokes--they were pretty popular for a few minutes, among certain crowds.

He certainly does, finally got a chance to see him live supporting Senor Coconut in the Half Moon, Cork. Great electropop and he isn't too proud to actually entertain his audience (whats with the little bicycle though? ). Senor Coconut had a very tough act to follow!

The Ballroom of Romance is a good place to see upcoming Irish and not so Irish music: http://www.ballroomofromance.com

Sorry to drag things back... but just to pick up on what Vandala was saying... Yeah fair play to the Bellies and DR for their persistence. But Juniper were NOT the laughing stock of Dublin - ever. What happened was one journalist - Courtney took a dislike to them and wrote huge amounts of vitriol against them. This never impacted on the numbers of people coming to see them, or sellouts at the Olympia, Mean Fiddler, Music Centre, whereever. It happened to coincide with Damien Rice being unhappy and leaving. What has happened is that those negative reviews have stuck around as a legacy - something which happens sometimes and is perceived by people to be the gospel. Courtney as a journalist lacks any credibility - as bad as Barry Egan. Worse, he is poisonous. Note his one-star review of the new Frames album. He's trying to be the vanguard of a "back lash" against these guys. Bulls**t. In a years time he'll be trying to lick Glen's hole in the same way as he has tried to lick Damien Rice's over the last few years. Sorry bout the outburst but I get annoyed when people understandor perceive Juniper as having been anything less than a damn good young band that have since spawned two brilliant acts. And for up and comings - go Neosupervital, and fair play to Ham Sandwich! JL

Sorry, but that's dingleberries. Crap begets crap, unless you are planting rubarb. And I agree with QsySue. The Strokes are twaddle as well
