That's got to be the dumbest thing I've ever heard anyone say on this forum.

i don't think it was a daft comment, my personal opinion is that indie music ( real indie music ) is just shit boring average music that you hear in the local bar played by averagely talented musicians, if this is my personal opinion how can it be daft? the definition of indie music is that it's music by bands who are signed on small , independant labels no? well my personal opinion is that those artist stay signed to small indie labels because they're simply not good enough to make it on a large scale and that's why bigger labels have no interest in such bands. franz ferdinand is an honorable exception.we're treading down the same path we have gone countless times before, that's why we Croatians ( in our infinite wisdom ) have a saying that goes something like this " o ukusima se ne raspravlja"....or " tastes are not discussable"

that is not correct. there are many fantastic bands on independant labels that are on these labels purely because either they havent been noticed yet by the big-hitters, or they might wish to remain independant.

well, you know, what is fantastic? doesn't it depend on personal taste? yes, i would say that for you a lot of indie bands are fantastic, aswell as hookers and expletive deleted, urban and sweet jane, but for me, bands like , most of them are crap. bands like clor, bloc party and franz ferdinand are not real indie because they are simply too good to be indie, i suspect that if they're still on indie labels ( i know franz is but i'm not sure on the other two ) they're doing it because they choose not to go to big labels ( yes, perhapse to maintain their indepenance ) even though they are more than interested, real indie bands are of no interest to big labels.....of course this is all generalisation, i too like some real indie, but it's very rare...
so, do you want the belle and sebastian? i'm more than willing to share.....

By a looooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooong shot, and so are most indie bands. Franz Ferdinand had a good debut, but a lackluster followup, and Bloc Party are boring. Clor I've only heard a few songs from, but they didn't sound all that special.
