You're the one damning everything indie so you'll need to tell me.

No I'm not

Where have you got that from?

I just don't know what it means or what it sounds like: the term gets bandied around a lot but doesn't seem to mean anything

That explains oh so much. Somehow I suspect you are not including Rory Gallagher in the bracket.

I said 'most' or was it 'much'

Anyway do you know anything Gallaghers career? 'On The Boards' came out in the late 60s

Despite its source, this does a decent job of explaining indie: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Indie_rock

Started as 'independent' (non-major/non-mainstream: 'home-made' attitude) and has been appropriated as a broad genre.

Lost me there, mate.

From memory in the NME Indie Charts they nearly always had Daniel O'Donnell as number 1 album as his distribution was independent.

Adele.

Phil Collins.

The Cocteau Twins.

Rap.

R&B.

The Killers.

Widdly-wah guitar solos

Singers who go '2-3-4'

Rhyming 'baby' with 'maybe'

Song titles that are the first line of the song - just lazy.

Pop songs that go leaping for the chorus within 10 seconds of the song starting.

Justin Bieber.

Any line that ends "... oohh, yeah"

Any line that begins with "I say.."

Snow Patrol (aka 5h!t Patrol)

Muse.

Rush.

Doof-doof-wicky-wicky 'Council' House as heard in max-power cars.

London Hipsters.

Geek rock (Band of Horses/Grizzly Bear/Of Monsters and Men)

Foals.

Bands who introduce the band at gigs - "on drums..."

Singers who hold the mic out to the crowd and shout "Sing it". No, I've paid £40 to hear you sing it you #####.

Any blind/deaf/paraplegic/90-year-old/aboriginal/native american/tribesman sat in a chair, wearing a hat and playing a bl00dy stick on 'Later' with Jools Holland.

'Later' with Jools Holland.

Privileged children of cra@p rock stars being cra@p rock stars.

David Guetta.

And Adele.

A great list. Not 100% in agreement, but 95% ain't bad. Especially for the two mentions for Adele. and the one for Muse.

Sounds about right. The original indie chart was pretty much all 'alternative' acts of one form or another but by the mid 80's it had mainstream stuff, providing it was independent.

I'd hazard a guess 'You Suffer' would get your vote as their best work.

Multimillionaire singers like Bono, Annie Lennox and Chris Martin asking us to dip into our pockets for charity. No you do it.

Having said that - Bono.

Musicians that get involved with political issues. Leave it to the politicians, or if you are so passionate about it become one.

Why? we all, supposedly have the liberty to get involved in political issues, why not rock stars? or actors? or RL players?
