Default Re: Glasvegas - Terrible band

I agree with Bo - very samey, which is a pet hate. Still they're tight enough, including the drummer, which puts them ahead of bands who are sloppy but delude themselves that they can play flash.

Interesting that the drummer has an approach that blends Meg (big fat simple cymbal beats) and Moe Tucker (playing a deep drum with her hands instead of a kick drum with her feet). When Moe played with the Velvets she had a kick drum on its side on a stand.

Chris, I agree it's pretty ordinary music but not as bad as you make out IMO. At least she's not a machine (another pet hate) and it's always good to see a woman thumpin' the tubs :)
