Mournful Congregation make me feel like I'm being crushed by the weight of the oceans. In a good way.

Funny that nobody (almost) here ever mentions The Smiths.

Or...maybe not so funny.

Not that I'm a fan of her music but the popularity of Lana Del Rey makes me thinks "Is this what it was like for people to see The Smiths on Top Of The Pops?"

I think The Smiths have made some good music only they're (Marr especially) legitimate dickheads.

I've heard a few people say Anathema's Eternity is very cathartic for times of low moods, but never tried it myself.



Fell in love with that album when I was 16 when it dropped. The sheer emotion in its roughness is brilliant.

Any love for Esoteric?

What's my problem with the Smiths? Not that they're whiny; I plenty of whiny stuff. Not that Morrissey is a complete whopper; I like plenty of musicians who are equally unsympathetic.

They're just such obvious charlatans, that's why. There's no way Morrissey really feels as bad as he makes out; if he did, he wouldn't reduce everything to plummy-voiced cabaret and secondhand bathos, and the constant nudge-nudge wink-wink. He's an end-of-pier entertainer. Robbie Williams for students, just like New Order were Wham! for students.

This is perfect. Post of the year.

I did see Esoteric in '95 - they supported some or other band (could have been COF) & were prob the first experimental band I saw. My local librarian gave me a CDR of their 2nd album. But I didnt get into them.

Funny, that's my favourite thing about The Smiths. They're in on the joke of course, otherwise it would be unbearable.


I guess, but there is something oddly humourless about Morrissey's humour: he has always given the impression that he either thinks he is, or wants to be treated as, the only person who has ever used irony or self-deprecation in lyrics.

Give me Microdisney any day of the week.

It's the same silly argument that we hear from the outside which opines that aggressive music makes for angry people. It's obviously not true. I mean it can be, I suppose, but for most of us it's got it's uplifting qualities.

Same with "sad" music. Nothing better than an evening of doom and slow riffs or bleak soundscapes to bring out the good feels. SHAPE OF DESPAIR is the most prominent example I can think of. Some of their shit is meant to be miserable, but they never fail to make it all better.

Absolutely. I was in a bad way the other night, messed up over something and nothing, and I went for a walk with Lustmord's The Word As Power. It's hardly cheerful, but the mood it generated dragged me out of the doldrums.
