    I was thinking to myself last night, as I lay in a ditch somewhere, is rock
    and roll dead as a live entity? For instance at gigs, stadiums etc.. you
    are no longer allowed to smoke, crowd surf, be over enthusiastic in your
    dancing, bring your own drink to out door gigs etc.... I mean rock and
    rolls about doing your own thing (right?), so why do I feel intimated by
    over weight bouncers standing close to me, eyeing me up in case I show any
    sign of enthusiasm for a band, and willing to kick out the first kid who
    shows the slightest emotional reaction to his favourite band? I know this has to do with all the health and safety/insurance nonsense, but f-ing hell what happened to rock and roll, baby?


    p.s. I' still drunk, at work. Now that's rock and roll - sort of.

    People who listen to Keane while washing their car on a Sunday started venturing to gigs, thus requiring them to be sanitised from the usual 'kids dancing in their own effluent' that had been the norm.

    Therefore I blame Keane.

    drunk or sober it's a fair point tho.

    The one and only time I went to a concert in the waterfront(been to comedians and the like since, but no gigs) I couldn't believe it when they told people to sit down and not leave their seats. Eventually they let people approach the stage maybe three songs from the end. It was all so choreographed and stilted and just totally sucked the fun out of it for me. I haven't been back to it for music since.

    That's what claim culture has done for us.

    That is exactly why most gigs and festivals now suck.
    People just don't know what to do or they don't have it in their bones like people who grew up on rock do.

    Ah but you see, there are laws now. No fun zone laws like health and safety, the smoking ban etc... things that did not exsist at the birth of rock and roll. The powers that be won't be happy until everything is super duper family friendly and pink and boring, with padded walls and we all have nannies. And rock and roll will decend into some sort of cold play dullness where everyone wears patterned jumpers and says please and thank you ad nauseum.

    The truth of the matter is that as appealing as rebelion sounds to most people out there people are either too scared of the consequences or too lazy to engage with it. In this country people stage dignified middleclass protests with the appropriate authorities notified in advance. It's all a load of wonk and the fact that people say rock and roll ( a genre which has realistically been redundant since punk) is supposedly the way in which people are properly educated about rebellion is just another bag of wonk, inarticulate tossers who know fu-ck all about anything other than coming from London or whatever or telling people to fu-ck off cause your parents taught you manners and you have no respect for them or their rules, yeah man fu-ck rules! woo woo! What a load of sh*te. there's nothing wrong with saying please, or thank you or fu-ck you if you feel it's what should be said. Rebellion for rebellion's sake is all people know about and not about rebellion because it gives you the freedom that people were seeking in films like The Wild One or Easy Rider, not some sh8t from a razorlight album or Pete Doherty maybe kissing Carl Barrat (he's so wild! he kissed a man! What would the vicar say! oh that's right, who gives a fu-ck! Grr!) Rebellion has been reduced to a 15 year old girl and her cool sk8r gang crashing the mall on a weekend (not during the week, that's the time for school). Yeah what am I trying to say. Oh yeah, rebellion doesn't exist because most people don;t see the point of it other than to get in people's face about something they probably don't really give a toss about either way.

    The point I was making was that these things don't usually happen at all (especially the air guitar one :roll: ), but they are used to stir up a frenzy of safety-conscious handwringing that is disproportionate to the level of danger involved.

    I'm not sure whether the school-marm tone is warranted on this occasion man. If you stack up the numbers of all the people who attend concerts and festivals against the amount of deaths caused by participating in the above mentioned-activities the number is very small indeed and should not therefore be used as a weak excuse for curbing those activities.

    You're kinda proving my point :wink: :-D

    I wish people would stop driving like dickheads and claiming for everything.

    Maybe a municipal racetrack would be a good idea? The bad drivers with stick on drug dealer bodykits and dump valves could go there to get girls and show off, and maybe then they'd fuck off out of the cinema car park. (joking, but the more i think about it, the better an idea it becomes).

    You should set up your own show then, DIY ethic and all that. £10 at the door everyone brings their own drink and crowd surf to their hearts content.[/quote:1432d5d64b]

    Why would I go to that trouble, when I can just be a cool rebel and say: "Rules? What are they? That's something other people do."

    No wonder none of the people on this board are making musical waves with this attitude.

    Rock'n'roll is a mindset, it doesn't matter how your music sounds. You could be coming off with the softest damien rice songs and still be rock'n'roll.

    I suppose in a town like Belfast it's more important to look like a Post Modern wánker than to produce or say something useful to the world. And look how far thats got us.

    :roll:

    Yes, because not following rules automatically makes you cool and ZOMG ROCK AND ROLL. Let's bottle it.

    You need a beer.

    I also agree that hurting other people is cool.

    Not only that, but shit music can be made up for with shenanigans.

    Furthermore, doing stuff other people classify as "rock and roll" is right.

    So, things we've learnt:
    Saying please and thank you and general manners isn't cool.

    Wearing whatever clothes you want, including stupid jumpers, is frowned upon - better not do this.

    In music, how "rock and roll" you are is directly proportional to how groundbreaking the music is.

    When "rock and roll" people have spoken, everyone else who doesn't agree is "uncool" and probably "wrong".

    The Libertines are a great band.

    Going to gigs = shit if you can't crowd surf. Why even bother going? Waste of time if you ask me.

    You'll get compared to the citizens of Nazi Germany if you don't follow the rules of a privately run venue etc. Godwin's law etc.

    Thank god for the internet, eh?

    I'm going to hurt you feelings by saying "fuck off" - it is the "rock and roll" thing to do, ergo the right thing.

    :lol:

    Fúck you too brother! (rock'n'roll meaning ofcourse)

    How the fuck can Damien Rice be rock and roll? He has too much facial hair. Rock and Roll starts and ends with sideburns. Get it right or be a laughing stock.

    tell that to these guys.

    I will. Got their phone number? You gotta admit though that their version of Viva Las Vegas was very pale in comparison to the cleanshaven (except for sideburns) Elvis Presley. Point made.

    The rebellion thing is all balls.

    My problem with the lack of rock and roll is people rarely know what to do at gigs that do rock now.

    Like at fu manchu I has sandwhiched between a row of guys not moving in any way in front of me and a load of boozed up loons trying to push each other over behind me.

    Clearly the thing to do was to shake your hair around.

    Valiant Thor that night were one of the most rock and roll bands I'd seen for ages but they got very little support/reaction.

    I feel a bit stupid banging my head on my own on a vaguely empty dancefloor, the rock should be about connecting with your fellow hairs even though you know it's all stupid anyway.

    True enough, people don't really know what to do at gigs.

    Although, I won tickets in the Katy's Pub Quiz to see Lez Zeppelin, and there was one guy up at the front who was rocking out more than I have ever seen another human being do.

    Fair play to that fellow!

    Yeah I used to have hair down to my ribs and it's great to really rock out to really good band, the only problem are all these teenyboppers standing there giggling trying to do the cabbage patch. Nothing wrong with people who like their dancing and like doing it well but when they're standing there trying to make you feel like your spoiling the night by getting into the music, that jars my weasel.
  75. avatar sheriffjohnstone
    Well I couldn't give a flying F&*K what anyone else is doing. If I want to dance/ bang my head / jump about like a loon, then I will and I do.

    To anyone saying the band was brilliant but no-one was doing anything. I hope you walked straight up the front and did your thing.Otherwise what are you talking about?
  76. avatar The enfant terrible
    Fooking right I did. I'm a trained dancer. I made a fooking windmill with my hairdo and the teenyboppers screamed and wailed as their cabbage patches disolved and they turned to clay and crumbled into weeping piles of unmentionable gunk and their parents had to be phoned to come and collect them.
    One parent at the scene was heard to say "they haven't cried so much since top of the pops was cancelled", as they carted their whimpering mess of a sprog out in a wheelbarrow.
    And what did I say? Not much, I just shrugged and said "What was I supposed to do? The band rocked."
  77. avatar sheriffjohnstone
    Good man. :D There's nothing worse than "Iwas gonna get up but no-one else did".

    Getting up and making an absolute git of yourself is what really makes a night out for me. Of course this is usually accompanied by girls in victorian dresses shaking their heads and saying "oh, who is that oaf, he's ruining the ambience of this rock quartet - someone please remove him at once. God redeem us, us poor ladies can but hardly see the stage".

    I do do my thing on my own but I always feel really exposed without anyone else around doing it.
    I'm shy by nature so I need alcohol and others to truly bring out the Great Spirit of Rock in me.

    So I end up only getting into a wee bit, unless I've just used 3 minute miracle then my hair will go crazy with little or no effort from me :smt035
