A Sad Day For Indie Rock
March 27, 2007
Your up-to-the-minute source for all things indie and nothing corporate ever.
It's been a big morning in the indie music scene. For starters, Temptation Station, yesterday's "it" boys fell from grace when they agreed to speak with a journalist from their local paper (the Sheboygan Pioneer). As we all know, speaking to anyone in any official capacity decimates a band's indie cred: even one as credible as Temptation Station.
Another blow for the indie scene this morning: Mars Solaris officially announced that they "kind of like Fallout Boy's new CD." This, of course, marks them as sellouts. Fans were beside themsleves.
"It's just a shame to see a band like Mars Solaris admit to liking corporate, over-produced crap." said Ashley "A-bomb" Bominy, 14.
However, this morning also saw the formation of a few promising new indie bands. Around 9:15 Jeff Azimoff telephoned Rory Peters and set a tentative schedule to 'work out some new stuff.' Azimoff, a former member of D4nceD4ance, and Peters, the current singer for Islip Condition, also discussed some potential names for the new band: &then some, Swimming Fool and Nomadical were mentioned.
Also formed this morning: Camp Automatic four 13 year-olds from suburban New Jersey coming together with the singular mission to "get girls" and "not get beat up anymore." The rallying cry of the true indie musician.
These indie bands are on the brink of selling out. You may want to start denying that you ever liked them now to save yourself the embarrassment when they sign a recording contract.
