Default Re: Just ranting about "Fast Food" style bands (the kind im in)

There's two issues in this thread. The sub-genres I'll leave to you guys.

But I think the heart of the issue was touched on by Mike. There is a clash of musical direction and you're feeling your creativity stifled in favour of a 'generic formula'. As for what to do.....my experience tells me that if it's ain't happening, then it's unlikely to change.

I like this:

I think if you get out and try to set up with some more likeminded people, you'll be happier for it. Seldom do bands work when they are stretching themselves in different directions. Musically, it always helps to be on the same page IMHO. That doesn't mean you have to have the same influences and tastes....but it does mean you all want the same end result (and I don't mean riches and fame :-) ).

Very best of luck to you. I'm pretty damned sure you're gonna make the right call whichever way you lean, mate. ;-)
