The worst crimes in music


Recommended Posts

Same here, love them and had tickets for their Dublin gig before all this shit happened. John Taylor and Nick Rhodes are amazing musicians and I even like Le Bon's voice. John Taylor posted some great bass guitar walkthoughs on Youtube during the pandemic if you've not seen them. But Christ, they really don't know their way around a cover at all do they.

Not sure if this counts, but I got sent this earlier... Yoko (predictably) shits up Chuck and John playing together, so Soundman cuts her mic :lol:

It's a wide open goal for embarrassment if you YouTube search anything Yoko.

The next "Cats" has been announced. FML. Which part of the globe will escape this, I need to go there on release. I mean it reads as utter shit (below). Olly Murs surely has the lead part in the bag, along with stunt work by James Corden

 

Robbie Williams biopic to be directed by Greatest Showman's Michael Gracey. Filming of ‘superhero narrative’ of one of the UK’s most successful pop stars slated to begin in the summer

 

https://www.theguardian.com/music/2021/feb/23/robbie-williams-biopic-film-greatest-showman-director-michael-gracey

 

A biopic film about Robbie Williams is in the works, helmed by The Greatest Showman director Michael Gracey. In an interview with Deadline, Gracey said the project, which he has co-written, will begin production in the summer. It will tell the story of one of the UK’s most successful pop stars, who shot to fame with boyband Take That before a wildly successful and occasionally rocky solo career.

 

Including two albums with Take That, Williams has four of the 60 biggest-selling albums in UK history, more than any other artist, and, while US fame largely eluded him, he is hugely popular across Europe.

 

Williams’ music will feature in the film, and he will rerecord his songs to match the film’s emotional arc, according to Gracey:

 

"All Robbie’s songs will be resung, for the emotion of the moment. If in his life he’s in the depths of despair, he’s not going to sing a song as cabaret flamboyant showmanship; it’s going to be broken, a cappella, stripped down, because that’s where he is emotionally. In moments of pure joy, you’ll get songs sung in this whirlwind of hysteria."

 

It is unclear if Williams will appear on screen, with Gracey adding:

 

"As for how we represent Robbie in the film, that bit is top secret. I want to do this in a really original way. I remember going to the cinema as a kid and there were films that blew me away and made me say as I sat there in the cinema, ‘I’ve never seen this before.’ I just want the audience to have that feeling … It’s this fantastical story, and I want to represent it in its harsh reality all the way to these moments of pure fantasy."

 

Gracey describes Williams’s story as a “superhero narrative”, calling him an “everyman who just dreamed big and followed those dreams and they took him to an incredible place. Because of that, his is an incredibly relatable story. He’s not the best singer or dancer, and yet he managed to sell 80m records worldwide.”

 

Eleven of Williams’s 12 solo albums have reached No 1 in the UK, the most recent being The Christmas Present in November 2019. He has been awarded the most Brit awards in history, with 18 – twice as many as Adele and Coldplay who are tied in second place with nine each.

 

Williams – who has four children with his wife, the actor Ayda Field – has suffered from depression and substance misuse issues during his career; he is now sober. He recently lamented the British attitude to alcohol, saying in 2020: “The thing about drugs and drink is the delusion. In the UK and many places, it’s as natural as breathing … you leave school then you go to the pub and that is it, and then you drink. We don’t need any of that stuff.”

I mean he’s not wrong is he.

He is relating to his own experiences around addiction, he doesn't speak to me or the majority on having a drink in a pub.

Yeah but I think the point he’s making is that it’s normalised, heavy drinking, or binge drinking, a few lines here and there, when in fact it can lead to addictive and abusive behaviour.

What is she actually doing there? I can't quite make it out but she appears to have four CDJ thingies, is playing a shitty trance techno track, there is no evidence of anything being mixed just a track playing. I'd have had more respect if she'd just stood back with her arms folded nodding to the beat.

It sounds like one of those tunes Limmy knocks out on Twitch. I think the unit in the middle is an effects thing though isn’t it? She seems to fiddle with it during particularly abrasive bits of that video.

 

I seem to get targeted a lot of these type of videos whenever I venture into Reels. Very attractive people posing behind a bank of 16 CDJs which they’ll occasionally spin back to the delight of 80,000 people on an abandoned airfield in Holland. The popularity of that brand of dance music seems to be perennial by this point despite not changing at all for about 25 years.

Like Louis Cole and DOMi do (excellently) here:

 

 

However this excellence has no place in this thread.

I was going to say - DOMi is fucking amazing (and JD Beck)

 

They are incredibly talented, but I find they wander off into jazz noodle zone a little too much for my own liking.

I'd probably drift off if I was listening just to the audio, but I'm just transfixed when watching them perform live

That El Combo track is a bit of a heater. It runs out of ideas quite quickly but I don't see the problem with it at all. Whatever that second thing is sounds like an untuned radio being thrown down the stairs at a forced labour camp.

Burned Mind made a good soundtrack to my millionth run through Resi 4 back in 2005 or whatever, but most days I'd probably rather listen to that frog alien thing.
