but when it becomes for all it tends to go shit :(I can appreciate why record labels aren’t signing anymore ‘4 blokes with guitars from up north’ thoughIt’s true that girls with guitars get a bad rap though, don’t know why that stupid woman thinks girls look stupid with guitars, especially when there are so many blokes with guitars who look like utter mongs

electro 4 all!
isn’t this just about stuff crossing over to mainstream?

maybe p is right – by sticking to electropop the girls are letting the boys still dominate the guitar thing. musically the thing im looking forward to next year is the new yeahyeahyeahs album – girl singer, new york cool, rocknroll!

that’s true
at least 2 of goldfrapp’s albums are electro, black cherry and the one after that that sounded exactly the same, and they sucked bad, but persuaded people that otherwise wouldn’t have liked electro that it was ok to like it

That is a bit lame. And the reason peaches didn’t sell much was because people weren’t used to the idea of electro in 2000, now it’s been butchered and hacked by the likes of Goldfrapp people are familar with the sound and idea. That’s why girl rock bands don’t get anywhere, people just aren’t familiar enough with the concept. Peaches would eat Lady GaGa for breakfast I think
