edgar prais in NME Radar section...

Recommended Posts

Nice little bit..

Page 22..

'Paul Harris, A&R manager @ B-Unique Records on his unsigned faves of hte moment'

"Casting my net slightly further north, to the sunny climes of Aberdeen, I just got a demo through from three guys calling themselves Edgar Prais (www.myspace.com/edgarprais). If Modest Mouse were jamming with Teenage Fanclub in Rivers Cuomo's basement, the results would bear some similarity to the punchy, crunchy pop these tykes make. I was so excited by the demo, I jumped on a flight to see them supporting our boys The Twang. They didn't disappoint. Seriously, they're one of the most energetic new bands in the UK."

lol - i know what u mean! it's cause they think they are the creme de la creme of the whole world wide music industry. An, also when they blast the twang all over the front page and big them up all the time, when Magazine sales in the West Midlands drop to an all time low, you have to wonder.....

It's not just NME who do that, it's very common and i agree very annoying. I especially hate when band A sounds like band B being hit over the head with Band C.

Nevertheless, a good bit of praise for them, after the amount of times i have seen them and been blown away, its about time they got some national recognition!

why should a band get national recognition just for you attending a gig and getting blown by them?

I feel this statement merits more exclamation marks.

I think you just answered your own question with that statement :up:

Any band that gives blow-jobs deserves recognition
