    @jjjjjjjjjjjjonj "it's just a complication of previously established idioms" [With snark] Lol yep, welcome to the real world where everything is a remix. The emergence of jazz, rock and roll, or really any other genre is likewise just a complication or reformulation of previously established idioms. [Without snark] what bands do you view as being more innovative?

    band formed around a principle: even though they can play their instruments well the music sucks

    when i hear music like this my tendency is to think of it as "lateral complexity," as in, it's not actually all that innovative or experimental, it's just a complication of previously established idioms. I was listen to 40 Rods to the Hog's Head (I remember talking about Tera Melos with my friend Oscar in high school and him saying, "No dude, 40 Rods to the Hog's Head") and I found it pretty insufferable tbh.

    when i saw them live bassist kept putting his junk near my face and i wouldn't budge because i was in high school and thought it was cooler if i didn't react to him moving around on stage. i think he was making fun of me now tbh
