Glad you don't like us.

Was there anything productive about the negativity for local bands who spend all their time doing something they love or are you just a moron??

There are bands I have seen and don't like but I don't hide behind a username and slag them off. I have respect for them coz they do what they do and usually with passion. I wouldn't tell them I don't like them.

Show some respect!!

Bollocks to that. If you can't take criticism, don't be in a band.

Obviously the originator of the thread should be able to back up his comments, but spare us this touchy-feely "respect" crap.

Its just my opinion on the bands, nothing personal. If a bands local I feel I can say if I don't like them as much as if they were a national one. Every band will get criticism good or bad and while I may not like whatever band your in Im sure there are some out there who do and they might even state so on this thread.

My list would be made up of bands that I want to like and sound great on paper but turn out to be a tad lack lustre... I will avoid open criticism however, far to many folk bands just can't take it on the chin and learn from it or just not give a shit that someone doesn't like them...

But you will hide beind a username and call someone a moron for not liking your band.....and not even mention which band it is he dislikes that you happen to be in.

i like you. cos you're a fucking idiot.

I would tell a band I don't like them if I didnt like them....because I don't like them.

I would also tell a band they were shit if they were shit....because they are shit.

Respect is for girls. and fucking idiots.

please tell me you're a girl. that would be amazingly perfect.

Do you expect him to say he likes every local band. Saying you 'dislike' a band isn't exactly slagging them off. If he said 'this band were fucking shit and they should never be in a band in the first place' then fair enough. But he has been quite reasonable.

If you are gonna react like that you are gonna have to either

a> Stop playing in Aberdeen - cos there are gonna many people who will slag off your band

b>Learn to live with it.

What kind of stuff do Dedalus play? Asking due to the obvious name link ;)

that's a different spelling of Dedalus though. the greek mythological version is Daedalus whereas Dedalus got their name from a James Joyce book called portrait of an artist as a young man. the lead character being called Stephen Dedalus.

they're a post-punk band who do a fine line in noisy pop music. but i may be biased as i used to be in the band.

While I don't think there's anything wrong with stating a dislike or like of local bands, I do think there's something quite pointless about just providing a couple of lists without any explanation. If my band was in either list, I think my reaction would probably be a shrug of the shoulders, which is unlikely to start any debate, unless somebody in the same room as me asks why I'm shrugging my shoulders. Even then, it'd be a rubbish conversation.

WTF?

He just said he didn't like your band. He didn't say you were shite or wankers or anything out of order/aggressive in the slightest.

Take a deep breath and learn to accept that some people don't like what your band do, it could as simple as they don't like the genre you guys play or whatever.

PS: Read what AK Martin said :)

A list of...Likes and dislike..

I like discussion with a point or a thread with a reason.

I dislike daft!

(This thread will head in the direction of a discussion about something though, it may make it, it may not, but we'll no doubt get a giggle).

So somebody says they don't like yr band, it's not like they've just shat on yr rug or something... You can't expect everyone to like a band, but then again a thread like this was always going to annoy people.
