Jimmy - great drummer, really added something to the music, pushed you further than you would otherwise have reached

James - down to earth foil for Billy's ego, added a relaxed vibe to the music

Darcy - girl on bass, nothing fancy but didnt do much wrong musically.


Cutting those people out of the band and replacing them with what seems like your take on god's children has turned you from a creative force into a rather weak and watery Christian band on the fringes of sanity.

and for somebody called ihaguitar, you really have no idea just how bad james sucked on guitar. I cringe when listening to live recordings with james. His playing was sloppy, his technique was poor, and overall he couldn't quite keep up with what Billy had laid down in the studio.

his "relaxed vibe" translated into his playing and it wasn't at the same caliber as billy and jimmy

Well he added something great to the Disarm on Vieuphoria, and his solo album is pretty nice if you ask me.

It is, it's a good listen when you're in that relaxed time is irrelevant mood.

I said it once, I'll say it twice: I don't give a fucking damn who the hell is in the band as long as it sounds good and I like the damn songs, regardless of whatever path or style he chooses to go. If he chooses Byrne, Jeff and this other girl and fuck producers and one song at a time and stupid and faggy spirituality, ok, really, I don't care about it, but I just don't like the fucking songs. That is the problem.

It's not even a problem, it's just what it is IMHO

James and Jimmy both had a distinctive style that made the group what it is. Darcy didn't really bring anything to the table. Although considering how sensitive and effeminate the music was at times I think having a female in the band was a good choice.

I still get really confused when I watch her sing back-up vocals from the Adore era.

yes it's like you want her to be cool and sing nice back up but in the depth of your heart you know it sounds awful

she doesn't sound too bad. its just that constipated look on her face that kind of puzzles you.

it's a comboproblem, lotsa little things add up to one shit-spangled whole
but that's how everything is
you want to believe in heroes and good and evil and stuff
it's just random crap that keeps happening, things bounce off each other and make new things, the whirlpool of the universe spinning around like a toilet mixing up whatever happens to fall in

plus I always thought it was kindof cool how James looked bored when playing, it kindof gave the impression of him being a robot sent to rock. And don't forget the ending of Silverfuck/Jackboot on Vieuphoria, that was fucking awesome!

Darcy claims to have suffered from stage fright at every show.
