Same with TOPY and all that stuff - very slightly dabbled when I was about 16 but house music saved me from that shit. I like Psychic TV and Throbbing Gristle but GPO was a fuckin lowlife really. Far too much sketchiness in all that stuff, including Coil.

It's your apostrophe being in the wrong place that leads to the joke.

WRONG

they made great music but using that taped sample of a nonce "mucking about" with a kid and all the Thailand stuff and the Love's Secret Domain video? it don't sit right with me...

I am prejudiced these days though, as most people I know who bought heavily into all the "occulture" do what thou wilt vibes seem to have either died or gone mad/fully isolated/fash etc

Yes that's very similar to me, IIRC from other posts you've made in the past I think we're very similar ages (I'm 36). It was kinda the punk of my generation in the sense of being the fashionable ugly noise and moral panic, which is a bit sad but at least it served as a gateway to a lot of much better music.
Yep.

Echoing your feelings about SOAD and Slipknot. Slipknot are adorable. They seem so scary but they're all so sensitive. I think I've seen about three videos of Slipknot crying.

Mate. Feed. Kill. Repeat. was great though. They had absolutely no idea who they were and ended up doing jazz funk.

Probably shouldn't bring up that I never left my Coil phase and I think their noise music was genuinely accomplished.

yeah I meant the music. I haven't really looked into the dodgy stuff they might have been up to.

My gateway was being a Kerrang reader. I'd end up buying CDs from the dregs of nu metal like Hed PE  and The Apex Theory based on charitable reviews.

if it wasn't for nu metal, I don't know where I'd be today. It was a very short trajectory from listening to Britney Spears to raving about Heartwork by Carcass, and Limp Bizkit were an integral part of that journey. Perhaps the most important part.

I HATED Beckham after France 98. Would probably have gone to an effigy burning if there'd been one in my area. Now I wish he'd done a Rooney bollock stomp on that diving cunt on his way off.

Yep. I was one of those guys who had that album before Slipknot became a massive thing. Nobody ever believed me.

I'm in my late 30's now, so that nu-metal era was a thing for me too. Also a gateway into better stuff.
I don't mind SOAD, Linking Park but the rest of it makes me cringe a bit now.

I had the unfortunate situation of hanging around with a guy who wore a Fred Durst style red baseball cap backwards who thought 'rolling' was an amazing track rather then the subpar rock/pop trash it was. And I sometimes used to wear those baggy pants with massive chains on them. Ah well.

Penn and Teller now accept global warming is caused by man, and Penn is a vegan for the sake of animal welfare.

He did it for health reasons (part of an extreme nutritarian diet, and I think he liked to make it very clear he wasn’t vegan for any ethical reason. Not sure if he’s changed his tune, but it’s for health first and foremost.

But Penn in general is bullshit.

NME and Melody Maker’s Britpop hype (although was only in my mid teens at the time).

Voted for Tommy Sheridan’s Scottish Socialist Party in the second vote for the regional lists in Holyrood elections a couple of times - I’m not sure that fairly lukewarm endorsement counts as ‘buying in’ mind you.

A while back when I still lived in Aberdeen a friend in our group, who had since moved away died. A cars worth of us wanted to go to his funeral and the two brothers in the group had parents who lived a short drive away from the service (Manchester) so they kindly put us up. Their nan lived directly on the route so was an ideal stop-off point for a quick toilet/tea break.

Which left us all stuck there for a bit, with her catching up with her grandsons and doting over us while being on our best behaviour. Which leaves you scanning the room out of boredom. I noticed some old sony speakers with the spare cones but couldn't find the hifi. Then I spotted the amstrad em@iler in the corner and couldn't stop staring at it. I'm sure I saw a router in the hall as well, what was she doing with it? It was like a limmy sketch, it bugged me, but obviously I didn't want to mention it.

Yeah he changed his tune, if you Google Penn Jillette ethical vegan you'll see a few articles plus a Joe Rogan interview.
