what ever happened to that POS waste of instruments ensemble called Magik Markers. Back in the day, I wasn't able to post in this forum without some little twit telling me how jaded I was for not thinking Magik Markers wasn't just the hippest thing, etc......

Just curious, I haven't seen shit about them in a while....

only thing I can figure is that they've tightened up their act, hooked up w/ a major label and are producing hits under the name "Black Eyed Peas" or something very similar? it WAS destined right?

EDIT: I love this band now. I said some things about them in the past that upset them, but I always respected them as people, for going out and doing what they did, and I think I made peace with them a while back. I just wasn't into their music, and it felt like every day someone on here would say they were "THE NEW SONIC YOUTH!" and all that... I mean, they were a very confrontational band, proud to be hated, and such, seemingly; really violent and running into people and yelling in their faces, which just kinda annoyed me with that whole act. But many years later, I actually think they're quite cool. I've matured a bit, and I think they have too. It really bothered me that they took anything I said personally, at any point, because I was just doing my usual self-depreciating asshole schtick. But I see them in a new light now, this thread actually made me listen to em again.

...Actually maybe one of my favorite bands now. They just don't give a fuck. They're just messy as hell. Just complete abstraction. I love that. One of the best bands ever! I'm not even kidding. Digging the hell out of em now.

Beyond the shoegazey Grace Slick sound of "Taste," I could never hear the attraction outside of the idea of guitar skronk abstraction.

the band is pretty different now, they have John Shaw of Apostasy Records playing bass(also a member of Son of Earth which also includes Matt Krefting who has a solo album on ecstatic Peace!) which has "tighten things up abit", Elisa actually plays riffs and tunes her guitar, Pete has a cool synth and is a mad man on drums, there good i still like them in a different way as opposed to their early raw improv sloppy noise routine... they are still on drag city.

that reminds me about the pedals i need to make for them.

Pete seems to be working with his Spectre Folk project more - as a full band they're pretty good - more psych rock than free spazz.

I never really liked their early stuff but was converted to fandom after hearing Boss, then i heard Balf Quarry and stopped caring. simple as that.

Their one of those bands wen you go see a band live and you see them as support act and your only thought is that's kinda cool their opening.

^^ the way I seen it

admittedly, the only bit I'd seen of them was around the time they just got exposure (via thurston I guess). I'm sure lots has happened since, some good, some bad, I don't know..... I just think in regards to interest in them.... sure, they're quite the spectacle... as far as music, I don't think I could call it music. So to say, I had fun with them at a show, and their music is good are two separate realities.

Last.fm, etc. There are people who genuinely like them.. pauly, batreleaser, !@#$%!, but I doubt they listen to em much. Their early stuff was... tolerable... in a druggy, messy, ugly way. The later stuff where they wrote songs... well... Pete's certainly a good drummer, Lee plays a cool riff on Body Rot. That's, hm.. that's about it, right? I think they were victims of their own INSANE press, which made people react against them. I mean, when you've got people calling them "the new Sonic Youth", "the next Yeah Yeah Yeahs", or when people said that Markers were helping bring no wave back, stuff like that.. I mean, come on. Look at Wavves. I think people reacted so strongly against Wavves because all the hype thrust upon him, when he wasn't really doing anything particularly interesting or special (I dig quite a few of his songs though), and then people were extremely happy when he burnt out. This band simply released a ton of albums that sound exactly the same, just these long ugly jams, and then somehow were "the next big thing", for no apparent reason. I think that's why, initially, this band fell into the love-it-or-hate-it camp. Now, I think they mainly fall into the "indifferent" camp for most people.

Being a bit older and wiser than I used to be, I can appreciate this band a bit more, and I certainly respect them for going out and playing these jams and whatever, I just never saw the big deal; their music never communicated anything to me.

i think im with you there cooley, theyre not the shit-you-up band that the internet said they were. But they are a welcome addition to anyones soulseek profile.
We all love a chaotic group with a girl singer who screams that we all want to sleep with

Actually, I should say, I stopped thinking about the Magik Markers after people here stopped complaining about other people mentioning them elsewhere.

So 'no such thing as bad press' is right, in this case.
