King Cannons heading straight to the top

Postby FC » Tue Feb 14, 2012 8:44 pm

of the generic rock and roll rubbish heap

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=42m7w_syV-c[/youtube]

Was trying to think what the song reminded me of, firstly I thought a bad social distortion...and then it hit me....its bloody chazz rabble. Apparently this is what you sound like when you suck all the soul out of your music and try to write something that you think people will like.

Some more drivel for comparisons sake

I dunno, it has a certain shitty charm. If he reads this, I'm sure you're still wonderful Rob, but Luke has always been a bit of a cock.

He's been the worst part of every band ive seen him in and did the worst speech at the big day out Ive ever seen.
Embarrassing as.

Writing music for people to not listen to while they chat to their friends is hardly something to aspire to.

I always thought Luke was kinda like an easy target for punker than thou types to make fun of. Looked like he's seen a few 'how to dress punk' videos on youtube or something. But never seen him be anything but a nice guy in reality?


That said, this song is abysmally boring.

I guess you didn't know him well enough. I used to find him quite a personable chap back in the HPM days, but he was more dick than not well before he started Suicide Dogs.

Are you just jealous that your roots rock reggae band never took off?

Gotta say Luke's never been anything but a nice person to me, same with anyone in any the other bands he's been in. But seriously, fuck this music. On par with rockabilly revival and folk punk. Joe Strummer's corpse has a lot to answer as far as shit music goes.

Hah comparing that to Chazz is a bit rugged....tunes aren't that bad at all and much better than Social Ds latest effort. Video wasn't the best though. Didn't realise that was Rob! Fella suits that moustache to hell if you ask me.

I enjoy having a giggle at the Cannons, but you guys are mean :(. Thought it was rats as they didn't get a local punk/ska band to open for them when they last played here...but reading this thread I can probably understand why the chose not to :P. Don't really know the others in the band but the Ting brothers were always decent. Talented bunch of people

As cheesy as their original stuff was, I enjoyed it. The new stuff, as much as a like Strummer/Springsteen/ and/or Social D/Gaslight esk stuff, it's nice enough to listen to but highly unmemorable.

Undecided on the moustache, I think he'd pull it off more if it was groomed better, pencil perhaps

Same here.

Agree with Pert about the Springsteen comparison. It's rock music. It exists. Certainly not the same vibe as that Rabble song.

he is a punker than thou type, he did the hard yards dressing like shit for a while before he started up with the whole purple leopardskin and platform creepers brigade.

ive always found him hard to get on with, but thats mainly cos he said on here he was gunna knock my teeth out, lol.

We let the Suicide Dogs record some demos in our basement at the Grove and Luke just acted like a fucking rockstar to us. We were supposed to get beers out of it but we were made to feel like they were doing us a favour by gracing us with there presence. He was always really selective over whether he would bother saying hi in public and stupid shit like that. Never heard anything but thick as pigshit cliches come out of his mouth. Just fucking rude tbh

He was also my Judas in the bleeders saga, and then the cheeky cunt came over with Gemma and co. to see if I was ok later that night. Was a pretty good cunt back in the days of HPM, when they went to parachute and ran around with pirate swords, but I guess he was too young to think he was cooler than thou.

You're all just bitter internet losers. King Cannons are the best supergroup since the Transplants.

I thought these guys had some good songs back in the day but everything they do now is less inspiring and seems more like a rock and roll pastiche. But the alternative radio kids love it.

From my run ins with them, the guitarist, bongo player and bass player are nice. The singer loves himself and is a walking cliche and loves to play the working class hero vibe, the drummer was a creep and the keyboardist is so so. The fact these guys have been around for 4 or so years and haven't done a album and seem to carefully manufacture each thing they do shows it's all about a career.

I had some mates who helped them out with some gigs when they were starting out. The gigs were very small attendence as no one gave a shit about the band then. Anyway my mates found out that the singer was talking shit about the shows to a mutual party a couple of months after the show. Nice bloke.

I don't mind the King Cannons as its something mediocre in a stream of pure shit that gets played on the radio. And Rob is an awesome dood.

Go for it if its what they want to do. I dont think a bunch of jerks in stink bands should be bagging on another stink band so hard, but whateves. That Living End support tour they did in Aussie would have been pretty fun.
