'spear of destiny' and 'theatre of hate' is where its at jase.

There's something wrong with me chemically Something wrong with me inherently,The wrong MIX In the wrong genes, I reached the wrong ends By the wrong means, It was the wrong plan In the wrong hands,The wrong theory for the wrong man,The wrong eyes On the wrong prize,
The wrong questions with the wrong replies. Wrong.

Clown. I'm surprised to be fair.

Elbow

Re: Most Boring, Turgid, Overrated and Pretentious Rock Acts

Can we widen the scope to include electronic acts? Here's some belters:

1. UNKLE
2. Daft Punk
3. Burial
4. The cunt in the Mickey Mouse helmet


Flame away, derps.

Re: Most Boring, Turgid, Overrated and Pretentious Rock Acts

UNKLE have done some great stuff. Some shit too, to be fair, but think they've done enough not to be in this thread.

Re: Most Boring, Turgid, Overrated and Pretentious Rock Acts

We're not strictly talking about the quality of their music, although most of it sounds dated now. Very self-reverential shoe gazing vibe about the act, like it only stops taking itself too seriously to shit and eat. Smile, you boring, turgid lumps, it's supposed to be fun.

I agree on UNKLE and Daft Punk after Homework.

This is a fucking banger, though...

Re: Most Boring, Turgid, Overrated and Pretentious Rock Acts

Interpol are amazing.

Elbow - shite.

Re: Most Boring, Turgid, Overrated and Pretentious Rock Acts

surprising how Elbow finally found main stream acceptance after years of show gazing.  They are as boring now as they ever where.
