Yeh when i think of britpop i think of the whole 90's blur/the verve era. I cant imagine labelling a band nowadays as britpop.
(im into everything, wouldnt say im a huge hardcore indie fan, but hell im going to reading festival this year!! franz ferdinand, the kaiser cheif..hurrah!)

I think though declaring oneself to be hardcore into indie music, makes one decidedly NOT indie. Ah well. According to the Hipster's Handbook anyway.

Like I said a couple pages back - if you want to discover some cool, new bands, read some music blogs and some worth a shizz music magazines.

The Killers are just as everywhere and mainstream as Coldplay. And I haven't heard about Beyonce in years, certainly less so than some of these "indie" bands.

I thought indie was meant to be obscure shit that adhered to a certain style and sound.

I take indie to mean, good shit, but not appreciated/known by the mainstream.

glad to know there's no bad music being released through independent outlets, and kudos to you for finding the perfect genre. if i listen to bands no one's ever heard of, i'll never have to hear a bad record again! huzzah!

since none of you guys would help me, i tried to make cookies using the track listing for the joshua tree, but i nearly blew up the kitchen. i thought it best that i just return to what i already know how to do.

Yes. youre right.Killers are everywhere and luckily i had luck to hear mr.Brightside on my radio and i am glad because of it.And as for the Beyonce and the rest....i have nothing against Beyonce in the first place,,,but Coldplay...i just feel it is unnecessary melancholy. But that is not the subject here anyway. To tell the truth my mind just ....i couldnt name few mainstream bands to give you an example. Anyone??I feel like... blank!
And as for indie music...i always discover someone new you surely cant hear on the radio or see the video!

Oh, there's bad indie stuff, but, unlike bad mainstream stuff, I am not being bombarded with it. I find the good indie shit and leave the bad shit alone.
