There's nothing dissenting about treating fans as morons with a hostile tone. It goes against the vibe of the thread. My opening post clearly suggests its a decent discussion about what
makes Radiohead a good or bad band. There's been nobody suggesting fans are idiots and non-fans are ignorant. Complaining about ticket prices is irrelevant. They are popular musicians and have no part in ticket pricing. Calling us dicksuckers is just outright rudeness, and proclaiming yourself as a dissenter
is, at best, rather petty.
It's fine if you dislike Radiohead. We won't launch on some diatribe and scream bloody murder for you saying so. I encourage your opinion. But you don't have an opinion about the music it seems. You just want to taunt the fans, who, so far, have made up 99% of this civilised discussion.
if I summarise your posts, I end up with:
Radiohead are, in my opinion, boring and irrelevant. I detest the fact a lot of people pay money to see their concerts; how dare they enjoy being in a large crowd of people? I'll juxtapose this with my own experiences of less crowded, less expensive gigs, giving the impression that a music fan cannot, in fact, do both things. (If you have seen Radiohead in concert, you clearly have a.) never paid $3 to see another band at a local venue, and b.) never heard of other music). The only thing I have against the actual music is I consider it 'meandering electronic side projects'.
So the only line of that précis that is actually relevant is that last line. If you had simply entered the discussion with that opinion, and not been so hostile, then perhaps a good-natured discussion could have been created. Hell, we could have entered a discourse on the annoyance of high ticket prices, at which point Cypherspace and I could have gloated about the excellence of Glastonbury, and also the fact I saw them for free on Later... with Jools Holland, even managing to spill a drink on Paul Weller's shoe. I might have even said "hey, I've paid £0.00 to see four or five excellent upcoming bands nearly every goddamned week at my local... and I'd still
buy a ticket for Radiohead, because I think it's worth it!"
