I get asked a lot about what other bands I like.
I know that this is largely because I spend so much time huffing over one particular band - like a creepy pervert - that people find it hard to imagine that there's anything else on my MP3 player. But yes, I do like other bands. Lots of them. So let's try a bit of give and take.
I'm going to post a bunch of bands, and songs, that I love very much and would like other people to enjoy. Afterwards, I would like people to listen to, and comment on, these songs, before themselves following suit and posting some songs of their own selection. Because experience has proven that we need rules to control the fun, and in order to prevent this from turning into another thread where everybody silently posts their youtube history at each other, these here shall be the guidelines.
- Babbling about previously posted songs, whether you've posted your own or not, is strongly encouraged.
I like chatter. However-
- Before you post your own selection you must listen to, and comment on, at least four other songs from other posters.
Make an effort to hear as many as possible, but at least four. And read old pages, lazy-asses. It's all about the exchange, people.
- Songs must from youtube, and be embedded.
Use the following format, please.
[B]Band Name - Song Name[/B]
[YT]Youtube Link goes here[/YT]
I like this band because they remind me of all those murders I did, etc.
- Post your selections in reasonable sizes.
Don't post in bits and pieces all over the thread, don't post a giant impenetrable doom block.
- Please throw in a quick comment with each video to sell it to us.
Why you like it, trivia about the band, where you heard it first, whatever. Just something to spark a conversation about it.
- One song from each band. ONE SONG FROM EACH BAND.
No more. If somebody else has posted from a band and you think you've got a better song or better version to recommend them, that's fine, just don't pimp the same band endlessly. It would be nice if you could pick something unexpected.
- Play what we wanna hear, yo.
I'm looking for great songs and bands that you love, and think we might have overlooked unfairly. But they are not necessarily your favourite or the best; nor the most obscure. Just good stuff that you think deserves to be heard, and great stuff we might have missed.
Please bear in mind that I'm going to listen to every single song that's posted here unless I've heard it before.
By which I mean "Please don't post shite."
So here goes.
