… anything that has to be rescued during a financial crisis, because it...– Paul Krugman, “What To Do” - New York Review of Books, December 2008
Easily the most indepth discussion ...
Me: But do you see what I mean?! Name your band Goblin Cock, sure. But if you do, you'd best be bringing the freakin' hammer of DOOM in any given song.
The Alienist: yeah, that song is a bit... i don't know
The Alienist: wussy
Me: Sh*tty is the word.
The Alienist: i mean it's also Sh*tty but i was expecting Sh*tty and aggressive
Me: Sh*tty and ... not the least bit Goblin Cock-y.
The Alienist: the synth in the middle kills it even further
Me: Or at least, in my interpretation.
The Alienist: and not enough distortion on the guitar
Me: Yes. And where's the unnecessary double-bass-pedal action?
The Alienist: they sound like a bad STP wanna be band
Me: Or even something less. Like ... what was that band ... Three Doors Down.
No. Even they rocked more.
The Alienist: yeah, they did oh i got it
The Alienist: they sound like a band that lists The Killers as a major influence, basically a band covering a band that covers another band
Me: A band covering a band that was best when they were covering Duran Duran, but now just suck because they've found their own sound ... which is a bit like STP.
The Alienist: exactly
Me: Glad we cleared that up.
The Alienist: this is easily the most indepth discussion of Goblin Cock ever
The Alienist: I doubt they talked about it this much while coming up with the name
Me: I didn't spell that correctly.
The Alienist: although i did like the name of the next album, Dragonf*cker: an Opera
Me: They are a band who sounds best when the local announcer guy calls them to the stage. "Put yer han's together fer GOBLIN COCK!" After that ... the bar just drops.
The Alienist: yeah, they don't so much not clear the bar as run headlong into it or under it, whichever is more pathetic
The Alienist: ok, so i ran an errand, and the entire time i was contemplating how much goblin cock pisses me off.
you're right, with that name, they need to f*cking bring it, i don't care what they bring, but they need to bring "it". i was expecting Sh*tty death metal, not Sh*tty post-grunge bollocks
Me: Yeah. I was expecting something epic. Either epic as in awesome, or epic as in spectacular failure. Instead, it's just meh.
The Alienist: they trouble me on an entirely unexpected philosophical level
Me: I think I am bothered because the lead singer seems to believe that they ARE actually bringing it.
The Onion Nails It. Again.
