Haven't had chance to preview this or check it so any mistakes are Scabby's

from the sounds of it so far, no one was able to put their prejudices aside at all

So once again we've managed to decide pretty unanimously that my song was the best? Thanks guys. Your songs were ok, but I guess you'll have to try harder to out rock the mighty Debaser!

er.....or maybe I just imagined that. Good article again though.

I fixed the one glaring mistake...

Oh, talking about LWP1: Does any LWP3ers want a copy of my side? It's been designed with only Mike in mind, but it might be interesting.

I think I've listened to that before, did it have a Moldy Peaches track on it?

Yes. One.

"Itís like foreplay followed by a handshake and a cold drive home: almost fun, but not quite. "

Guy- that comment was touched by genius. I'm stealing it.

I'm surprised the Big Black track wasn't more popular- they were a brilliant band. "Kerosene" is a monster of a song.

Incidentally, I thought the chorus of the Idlewild song went "All I need is a little Dutch Courage", which I contend would have been far better.

You'd be amazed. I actually said something nice about Provost's track, and that buggers belief. Bet he'll hate my last track (along with everyone else) however.

Hey, now a couple of your tracks Laz have actually had quite good reviews :D

I aim's to please. Plus, I was getting bored of just writing "This was crap" over and over. ;)

Dutch courage would make more sense. I couldn't be arsed to google it. It was that inspiring.

I think everyone has been fairly generous towards other peoples. This series has certainly opened my eyes towards a few bands i might not have listened to otherwise....


I might be wrong, I'm reallypissed......

K_G Did you read the parts where I actually didn't hate the country tracks?

Provost Harrison
26-12-2002, 13:27:28
Yes, erm, country tracks...I think I OKed a few of them, but not all of them...

well done :)

but i still have my reservations about the success/point of the whole project, even if debaser really meant it when he said

i think he's in the minority...

Hmmm...

The main revelations for me have been Scabby's Jamaican stuff on LWP 1 and this one. Mainly 'cause I hadn't heard it before. Most of the other stuff I've heard similar things before and know what I like / don't like.

A lot of times it confirms some of my predjudices. Like, I find out a track I couldn't think of anything good to say about was Super Furry Animals which kind of confirms what I think about them from what I've heard previously.

I say "pooh" to that. I've already bought an album off the back of it, and intend buying several others.

Pah. If you were any more wrong you'd need to get "I'm Ricky the wrong boy" tattooed all the way down your love truncheon.

He'd have to settle for getting "I" tatooed.

hahahahaha. you gusy RE SO FUNNY

as far as i'm conerend LWp was a load of bullshit

you might as well have wanked each other off for all the difference it made

if you wanted to prove you all had different music tastes you knew that already, and as far as picking obscure bands to prove how diverse you msuic tastes werre, how pathetic can you get...

what was ther actual point of listen wihout prejudice 3? does anyone know?

Lazarus and the Gimp

It was to get introduced to bands you probably wouldn't have listened to otherwise, in the hope that people might likesome. For just about everyone involved, that happened.

It was also to have massive and entertaining sessions slagging each other off. That also worked.

It was also to play the game "What the fuck is Scabby talking about?". That was a resounding success.

You've only got to look at the tracks selected to see that nobody was going for enforced diversity. We were just looking to include stuff others hadn't heard that we thought was good/interesting. If that's pathetic then slap the cuffs on, guv'nor.

Had you been involved in it you'd probably have got more out of it. As you weren't, why the big bee on your bonnet? Feeling left out?

I've enjoyed doing it. I bet I'm not alone in that, so there's your "point". If it's such a burden to read these things then why not just go and slowly work a spoon up your arse instead?

Funkodrom

Judging by the time of that he was drunk when he posted it.

I enjoyed doing it as well. There are a few things on there I really liked that I hadn't heard before as well. Even if I don't go out and buy anything from it, and I might, I've got a couple of decent CDs that I listen too quite a lot.

The point of picking diverse bands is that it's good to hear something new so you don't want to pick 3 or 4 songs that everyone knows because that would defeat the object. You can't listen without predjudice if you already know the bands and songs.

I agree with Laz though, join in the next one, you'd get a lot more out of it.

Yup, it's gonna be called LWP4: Unite The World. Literally every single person in the world is invited to contribute the most obscure, pretentious record they own to a specially constructed website where they will be ignored or insulted by everyone else.

You bet your arse. I've got loads of killer tracks lined up.

Does, you know, anyone else feel like organising, planning and compiling it? Um.
