You posted a Nothing song, so I'm not going to check the others out.

A bang average band who would have been shat on in the mid 90s but are getting all sorts of plaudits like they're the savior of modern rock.

Case in point.

That's pretty high praise coming from the guy who talks about his own band like he's ghostwriting mildly positive reviews

Yes, TMD is my band but I have first had experience of this, so it's pertinent to me. The 30 people who've bought our latest album have shared that shit and cited Pearl Jam, Deftones and SP as bands who our latest album is infinitely superior to theirs, but no one sees that because they're not interested.

The music industry is the opposite of inspiration for independent bands and very soon there'll be non left.

Any alternative band that put their debut album out post 2007 or isn't a generic shoegaze band with all the right pedals but no songs is fucked.

People are buying Ł60 re-releases of a 1991 Slowdive album but not theirs.

This is some of the most hilarious, self-serving, cringe shit i've read in a long time.

At least show some consideration for the guy that pasted all that stuff just for your ungrateful sorry ass.

You're right, I was an arse. Thank you for pointing that out. Although, resorting to ad hominem isn't cool.

Honestly, the 2 albums by The Microdance are great. They’re everything Smashing Pumpkins fans say they want without being a rip off.

Also be sure to check out “One of these archetypes must DIE” by Liefeld.

If ever there was a genuine compliment, I'd like to hear, that would be it.

Thank you so much, sincerely!

billy can truly be disgusting sometimes.
I don't recall him ever saying anything about her sexuality. It seemed more like he wasn't happy with Nicole using her position in SP to promote her work with The Microdance + The Cold and Lovely.

After firing Mike & Nicole he said he wasn't happy with the vibe and "nicey niceness", and also something that indicated he'd been reading too many books by startup CEOs. Almost a direct quote from "The Lean Startup" by Eric Reis about their next steps being a huge step up and him having to decide who to take with him, who to leave behind, who he wants representing and having ownership of the brand blah blah.

Actually 11 years old with 2140 likes. Still pretty pathetic, but then again, so is the musical climate of the last 10 years, this is why I have no shame in admitting that I've sold 10s of copies of my music.

Anyway, why should I give a flying fuck what people whose prime objective in life is to post more than others on a 90s band's forum think about my music. Especially if they're judging me off a four minute single.

Try Try Try etc etc.

Listen to the album, 'New Waves of Hope', that it came from, you utter fuckpig (not you, the first prick who posted about it, whose name I won't deign to look up) www.themicrodance.bandcamp.com

Also, if you want reviews beyond 'this is pretty good', go here: www.themicrodance.com/press

Is it any wonder the musical landscape has gone to utter ratshit, with cunts more inclined to dis other's music without giving it a chance because they've got a perception that trying to upset people online is a fucking achievement (trying being the operative word) rather than listen to it, in case it might be good.

Yeah, his snarky comments that he posts to give him a boner means he rules so much more than the guy who wrote a 70 minute album with 100 guitars on each song in three days and recorded it in 15.

I wish I could say I'm paying the heel, but this shit genuinely makes me think very lowly of people; hence he is a cunt.

Thank you Incubator for buying both of my albums, properly listening to them and being very complimentary. That shit shows relarive grace on a forum in which most people's primary concern is trying to exalt themselves through criticisising the work of others.
