If I had not known Comus to be such a douche before, it would have been so much funnier. HOWEVER, I can still show this to people and laugh my ass off.

What that they think you're an utter ****? Judging by some of your other posts i'd imagine that that effect would be a regular thing for you.

You've just been allowed back after you made comments like this, don't push your luck.

The next one means you're gone for good.

Fair enough but others HAVE made similar comments in this thread, just because i have been banned once or twice before doesn't mean that my remarks should be flagged up more than others.

Those have been dealt with as well.

How did I miss this? I dont know whats funnier Comus' fake album or that fact that some of you were actually offended by it. I think it's brilliant, the first thing Comus has done that I actually liked.

And as such the usage of the word indie is now, and probably always will be related to the sound of the band, rather than the actual label that they're on. Which is a shame, because it means a lot of bands that don't adhere to that certain sound will probably be ignored.
i agree with you entirely, and honestly, i would call any music released on an indie label "indie" it gets me pissed off that bands like the white stripes, death cab, coldplay, the decemberists, oasis, etc. are considered indie on any level. most of them released music on indie labels originally but all of them are now released on major labels. even radiohead isn't an "indie" band (although they will always be special in my mind because of their releasing in rainbows for free). out of the four bands that you were making fun of, i only consider two "indie" (NMH released by Merge and Animal Collective released by Domino). radiohead makes alt/ soft rock and so does MGMT. indie, like punk rock and every other retaliatory music movement (except for new age and avant garde) has been whored and commercialized.

my only point is, don't hate on indie people for liking this stuff because there are a lot of really devoted fans out there.

pitchfork does not make an indie band popular. ITAOTS had a very small but devoted following that has slowly grown since it was released 11 years ago. Pitchfork may have helped slightly but to say that the entire indie system is based on pitchfork is just wrong, you are overestimating pitchfork's influence a lot.
