On a Noose

By Towers Of London

For once, believe the hype. This is the sound of the bile-spitting hellcat of hatred being thrown into the dope-addled cooing pigeon pen that is British indie at present. I dunno quite how they've done it but TOL have taken the potent fury of the Damned circa "Neat Neat Neat", added in the attitude of Iggy Pop and the riffage of prime time Wildhearts and created something downright amazing here. Watch out Kasabian, The Killers, Babyshambles and all other third division nowt-to-say no-hope whingers, your grave diggers have officially arrived.

What the hell? Why the comparisons to loads of random bands?

Because they are the bands curently making the front pages of the popular music press I guess...

Is it possible to like music made by bad people?

Dave: but the suggestion that those bands should be, in effect, more like Towers of London is proposterous. There is no similarity.

I didn't interpreted his comment that way. It made sense to me.

Lewis - what I'm saying really is that it's good to have a band with a bit of excitement back in the charts, something which in my view the three bands I've listed have precious little of for all their column inches. Guessing you're not in agreement but it's just an opinion mate.

Sam - fair enough, I can't say I'm particularly familiar with any rumours about the band, all I've really had to go on with Towers Of London so far is this here single. Which I happen to think is brilliant. And, well, this is a music 'zine and not a personality 'zine. So I'd have to say the answer to your question is a resounding yes.

They sound like twats to me, trying to get column inches to promote the music (which is a poor form of the crap that should have and did die long ago) Don't like.

Andy: my problem was more that you didn't state it as an opinion. *shrugs*

Also, I don't know how you can say that three successful, established acts have 'no hope'...

Last words from me on this subject - surely it goes without saying that all music reviews are based on opinion rather than fact and should always be interpreted as such? Also, while said bands may be successful it still doesn't stop them being "no-hopers" in a musical sense imho. Guess we just ain't gonna agree on this 'un are we?
