I've dealt with Keane before on this board. I think the words chubby, mummy, Students' Union and shot were involved. Those words still stand, but now with 50% added venom at no extra cost to the consumer.

I remember being at a friend's house party (a friend whom I was interested in bedding at the time) and Clap Your Hands Say came on and I asked "what's with the bastardarized Daniel Johnston meets Bob Dylan" (trying to show off my relatively cool music knowledge).

And she said they were her favorite band. Should have bit my tongue.

I can't think of any specific examples at the moment, but anyone who sings like their balls are being held in a vice needs shooting too.

edit - The guy from Shudder To Think is one example, although he does use his voice in an interesting way sometimes, so I may allow him the chance to run as fast as he can for ten seconds before being shot at by a one-eyed man with shaky hands.

My friend looked after them at their record company for a while, so i used to have to lie and tell her that i liked them, when i think that they are as boring as a coversation with a brick wall.

ok, but they are not indie now. I assume they were quite crappy before the major treatment too, but now those bands are just unbearable.
p.s. Avril Lavigne started as indie because she sang in those country fairs?

Swing the Statue. But try and download it for free or on the cheap, as she is an acquired taste and I wouldn't want to be responsible for putting a CD in someone's collection that they absolutely hate.

Also noteworthy is her contribution to The Bridge: A Tribute to Neil Young, which has the advantage of having quite a lot of other decent stuff on it if you don't like Ms Williams.

Ha ha, don't worry, there's no need to answer, luckily...
I just happen to have a not very precise idea of "indie". But that's ok.

Ah, the whole indie/mainstream thing is lame anyways. The bigger labels have been passing off their subsidiary minor labels as indie for years now with all too much success.

Plus, I never liked the self-built indie glass wall.

Yeah, I think T&B meant "indie" in a good way, not the modern emo-wannabe-blah blah culture or the post-u2 kind of radio friendly pop, he listed quite good (to an extent) bands with shitty (in his opinion) vocals, not crappy bands. You know, with a decent "attitude", "indie attitude".
I have no idea about the meaning of this post.

Thanks for that, her music is great, and i can defiently hear the similarities she shares with Newsom.
I just streamed 'Musings of a Creek Dipper' and thats my favourite so far.
