but the music sucks because the keyboards don't have the cold/mechanical sound they had but a wannabe techno sound that it's pathetic for Rammstein standars.

By that reckoning "The The" would be Indie Kings. Awful name though.


Sadly he is not, frankly it sucks that no-one knows The The :(


I know The The. I haven't heard that much by him, but he is good.

Actually, whether it works depends entirely on how serious he is. It is a generally acknowledged fact that the names of goth/industrial etc. bands must be:

a) clicheville (Black Atmosphere, Deathstars, Die Laughing)
b) references to old horror films (Nosferatu, London After Midnight, Carfax Abbey)
c) Awful puns or semi-puns (The Newlydeads, Electric Hellfire Club)
d) Plain wierd (Clan of Xymox, Libitina, Killing Miranda)
e) something to do with the word 'coil' (Coil, Mortal Coil, Icon of Coil)
f) A veiled reference to the nazis (Death in June, Joy Division)
g) Vaguely offensive (Alien Sex Fiend, Christian Death, Blade Fetish)
h) Nonsensical cultural reference (Bauhaus, Rosetta Stone, The Mission UK)
j) All of the above with more k's (My Life With the Thrill Kill Kult, Inkubus Sukkubus, Ikon)

So, really, that could be the perfect name. I mean, part of the appeal of goth bands is their often atrocious names. Then you can use put-downs like "By the powers of darkness, Lucretia, this bands use of cold, distant synthesisers is almost as cliche as their name. I tire of the musings of 'Alien Bats From the Crypts of Zarathustra's sister, Jane'. Let us retire to my boudoir to swoon and read pre-raphaelite poetry."


Which ikon do you refer to? The Australian Ikon, or the British Ikon?

i realise that i am slightly buzzed on coffee in the toliets of a boeing 737 rubbing a wet rock on myself. if you've ever had a similar moment of clarity i think you may be able to relate to the feeling.

DOST THOU! DOST THOU!

For the purposes of the post, it doesn't actually matter. But the Australians I suppose.

I may catch some grief for this. Maynard can come up with a really neat band name, A Perfect Circle, that references the fact that there is a theory that if you can draw a perfect circle, you're crazy but artistically brilliant. So he knows his crap. Right?

TOOL? Someone explain this one to me. Please. I think... genitals... I think... phillips screwdriver.... BUT IN CAPITALS!


Also: Hed P.E.? WTF?

PS: Finding Trail of Dead albums in a record store is always fun. "Is it under A for And? Y for You? T for Trail? I have no clue.

The 'P.E.' stands for 'Planet Earth', I believe, but I'm not sure if that actually brings any more light on the situation...

KoRn is a fucking stupid name. Not only is it mis-spelled, but it means nothing.

Yes... yes it is.

So Hed Planet Earth?... Is it like some pulp fiction space captain Buckaroo Bonzai style all staring into the void as the view of our peaceful green planet becomes more clear. "'Hed... Planet Earth. Make it so."

Because... that's dumb.

Ask a TOOL fan what TOOL stands for and you'll be sure to get you daily dosage of psuedo-intellectual high school philosophy 101 bullshit about referenes to Nazis or some shit.


KoRn fans, ask them what it means, and they'll turn their hat sideways and curse at you.
