Band Revisited - Kaiser Chiefs
Fuck Yeah blogging under the influence of alcohol makes shit mo easier, you don't realise the spelling mistakes you make and you think errthang you type is either really funny or fucking interesting. Anyway now act like I'm a sober nig, week 2 on the band revisited idea and I feel like I've got a really good one to use. The Kaiser Chiefs were never my favourite band but I used to have a soft spot for them and for the purpose of this blog used to will be an operative word.
Singles Never Miss A Beat and Ruby are probably the biggest songs in their armoury, Never Miss A Beat being the song that first drew me to the band, in retrospect I have no idea why but I thought they were great. The albums I was still listening to a couple of years ago were Off With Their Heads and Yours Truly, Angry Mob. Of f With Their Heads being my least favourite of the two but had songs like Spanish Metal and You Want History which for some reason I thought were great, unfortunately listening to them now I have no idea why I liked them cause they're all really boring songs.
Yours Truly, Angry Mob I really liked and again I have no idea now why I even bothered, nothing apart from one song for me is any good, the one exception is that of Loves Not A Competition (But I'm Winning) the lyrics are really great, the music behind it also pretty cool and simplistic to not over roar what is being sung about. Ruby, arguably the most famous Kaiser Chiefs song is the biggest zzzzzzzzzzzzz on the album, "Truly" boring some might say...
So in conclusion I really don't like the Kaiser Chiefs anymore and have very little idea why I liked them in the first place. Maybe this band just snuck under the radar for me and I never really realised i listen to them, either way I don't now and probably won't listen to them again sans one song.
