Posted by Anonymous | October 15, 2008 9:33 PM

i don't understand how daft punk would do that.

i love daft punk, stop ruining their image by being a (horribly vague) jerkoff.

please, enlighten us.
"listen to some good music" such as....
everyone in those pictures thinks that fiasco is making good music.

Posted by Anonymous | October 18, 2008 10:45 AM

Just because it's loud and abrasive, does not make it bad music. We've been over this countless times, write it down this time.

Honestly, listen to something more than the first 5 seconds of Oh You Horny Monster and tell me that it isn't a brilliantly composed song. Because it is.

Posted by Anonymous | October 19, 2008 1:25 AM

Fiasco are annoying little brats. I cant think of a worse band. AWFUL MUSIC.

Be gone little boys!

Posted by Fiasco Sucks | October 19, 2008 3:28 PM

what makes them annoying little brats? what makes their music awful?
you obviously seem to have some sort of grudge against them.
I and I'm sure many other people would personally like to hear an explanation of what exactly you're talking about.

Posted by FIASCO RULES. | October 19, 2008 4:16 PM

I saw them last night at Cornell opening for the White Mice, they both destroyed!!!
Fiasco are really dedicated performers.. some of these commenters obviously have no idea what they're bashing.
The drummer played sooo heavy and with just one bass drum pedal, like Zach Hill or something, it was unreal. The guitar player is seriously out of his fucking mind, he was beating the shit out of his guitar as he played it. And then after the show he just sat down and started playing classical pieces at the piano and shit, it wasd completely INSANE.
Just listened to their record this morning and all I can say is... Bravo!!! The future of good music!

Posted by BR | October 19, 2008 9:43 PM

"what makes them annoying little brats? what makes their music awful?"

They walk around like they're above everyone else. Theyre a bunch of fucking hipster snobs who think they're so "out there" and hip. In response to the second question, their music is awful because they can't play their instruments at all. It's just a bunch of stupid noisy bullshit.

Posted by Anonymous | October 19, 2008 9:48 PM

fiasco is amazing. FUCK YOU, YOU IGNORANT ASSHOLES.

Posted by Anonymous | October 19, 2008 10:12 PM

they're honestly not that great. what makes them so amazing?

Posted by Anonymous | October 19, 2008 10:13 PM

Arrogant?

They're all like little fuzzy kittens. All very sweet young men. And they have a ton of friends! Such a warm community.

See? Now don't you look like an asshole?

SUCK
MY
PENIS.

...what? they don't walk around like they're above anyone else. it's three really nice guys. their success does not seem to have made them any less humble and just cool guys - i'm friends with them and it's really not like that at all.

and that doesn't inform the music, either. i hate to take from the great big book of rock review clichés, but whether or not you LIKE the music, you try to play this shit.

Posted by Kabir | October 19, 2008 10:15 PM

Dear 9:48 PM,

You, in fact, are a bunch of noisy bullshit.
Please never comment here ever again, as you are making yourself look like a complete chode.
Good night.

Oh yeah, and Fiasco are fucking hardcore. They spastically rape your ears and then slowly tickle your asshole in the best way possible.

Do my eyes deceive me???
Is there really a fucking bitter asshole saying that Fiasco can't play their instruments?
Brooklynvegan commenters, you continue to show that an overwhelming majority of you guys have shit for brains.
Even if you hated their music, you cannot deny their technical skill.
Eat dick.
Fiasco is hot.

Posted by fuck these stupid fiasco hatin bitches | October 20, 2008 8:13 PM

they use some CRAZY alternate tunings, i can't even begin to describe how cool this band is. the guitar player is a genius

Posted by nic3 | October 20, 2008 9:38 PM

they really are not that great i saw them recently at trash bar! it was pretty generic i'd say, not worth all this hype.

Posted by Anonymous | October 20, 2008 9:40 PM

"the guitar player is a genius"

and a stud. i touched his back while they were playing! omg so fine.

Posted by Anonymous | October 20, 2008 9:45 PM

Exactly how recently did you see them at Trash Bar?
I'm very skeptical of this claim.
I believe it to be false.

Posted by Anonymous | October 20, 2008 11:12 PM

they definitely didn't play at the fucking trash bar. whomever said that is either being subtly sarcastic, talking about another band called fiasco who sucks, or is simply a cocksucker, trying to tarnish fiasco's good name.
they may have played there, but it sure as HELL wasn't recently.

Posted by pete | October 21, 2008 7:06 PM

I guarantee you, in a couple years they'll be huge. Going places, those guys are.

so yeah, clearly if you're hating on fiasco, you're hating on banzai and runtime error.

WE A FAMILY YO. YOU HATE ON US, YOU GOIN DOWWWWN.

MADDD DOWN.

Posted by M 2 da A 2 da X | October 22, 2008 7:04 PM

all those bands are overrated.
especially fiasoc.

Posted by G.K.F.S. | October 22, 2008 7:50 PM

Those bands are not overrated, they all fucking rule.

And Fiasco are not "hipster snobs", they're really really nice people.

Who can play their instruments really well.

I'm really sick of these ignorant people posting idiotic bullshit, they should fucking get a hobby or something.

Posted by jhern | October 22, 2008 7:57 PM

how are you gonna say banzai and runtime error are overrated?
overrated by WHO???!?!
theyre some of the most underrated bands i know

Posted by lsteez | October 22, 2008 8:05 PM

I saw runtime error they were really boring.
really nothing special.
banzai i havent seen
fiasco is pretty sweet ther new alubms really sick
whoever said they coudlent play ther instruments is a fool

Posted by ilovetoskate | October 22, 2008 8:11 PM

FIASCO IS NOT GOOD MUSIC. IT IS NOISE.

Posted by Anonymous | October 22, 2008 8:15 PM

fiasco is good music. it's very well constructed, intellectual music. you're just too stupid and not advanced enough as a music listener to hear that they are actually really technically skilled and are great songwriters. if after all that, it's still not your cup of tea, fine.
but don't call it simple noise. it's much more than that.

Posted by mike | October 22, 2008 8:22 PM

yeah wow they are obviously really good at their instruments- no denying that shit

Posted by Anonymous | October 23, 2008 7:43 AM

INTELLECTUAL MUSIC

you wouldn't understand, dad! it's intellectual music!

Posted by Anonymous | October 23, 2008 8:48 AM

yeah.
intellectual.
as in makes you think, dipshit.
any doubters should buy the record and listen to it all the way thru- quite a mindfucking 23 minutes.

Posted by Anonymous | October 23, 2008 6:54 PM

woah did i actually post that?

Posted by layne | October 23, 2008 7:46 PM

fiasco's playing mad CMJ shows this weekend!!! im so psyched!!

Posted by Anonymous | October 23, 2008 9:38 PM

yeah yooo samme that one under the williamsburg bridge or whatever is gonna be sick as helll

Posted by sam | October 24, 2008 7:02 AM

I saw them at the knit yesterday: holy shit those are some talented guys.
they mix it up so well, with really dance or punk influenced songs, or mathy technical stuff, or a combination of them. drummer is so ridiculous! his arms were flying all over the place, the guitarist has gotta be jazz-schooled, played all these really complex chords and lines.
they didn't seem to be selling records, but I highly await hearing it.

Posted by nicbarlow | October 25, 2008 1:31 PM

"woah did i actually post that?"

layne: only you can answer that question; why would you ask everyone else??
and i was at that knitting factory show as well, by far the best i've ever seen fiasco. every song was a blast of energy.
greatest moment of the night: guitar player "soloing" on the ceiling during steve herman!
anybody else catch that?
if anyone has pics of that show, please post a link!

Posted by Anonymous | October 25, 2008 1:36 PM

haha the guitarist not jazz-schooled, he's still in high school. he's completely self-taught. i asked him who he took lessons from too along time ago and he said that his goal was to never take a guitar lesson. that guy is one of the best players ive seen ina while.

Posted by andre | October 25, 2008 1:41 PM

i dont think they played at the knit last night. i definately saw them at cakeshop, they fucking killed it!!!
unless they did both..?
LOVE this band.

i don't think i posted that. that's why i said that.

Posted by layne | October 25, 2008 10:00 PM

i think you would remember whether you posted it or not, unless you've got alzheimer's or are an alcoholic or something.
anywhoo,
fiasco tore up the cakeshop 2 nights ago, one of the best shows outside of cmj i've ever been to.

Posted by Anonymous | October 26, 2008 10:11 AM

knitting factory show was crazzzzyy as fuck.

Posted by david | October 26, 2008 2:33 PM

if they're already great songwriters at this age, it's scary to think what they'll be like in 3 years.

Posted by mrbailey | October 26, 2008 2:41 PM

they're honestly not that great. what makes them so amazing?


uhhhh have you seen them live, asshole?

Posted by Anonymous | October 26, 2008 9:37 PM

I have been playing guitar for 16 years and I can tell anybody criticizing their musical skill right now: self-taught or not, that guitar player is one of the most talented musicians playing right now. I saw Fiasco at Cakeshop, they have complete control over their instruments. The way the play, you can just tell how deeply into the music they are.
Fantastic band, I expect big things for them in the future.

Posted by jimB. | October 26, 2008 9:53 PM

the guitar player IS DEIFITENLY, 100% NOT JAZZ-SCHOOLED!!!

Posted by Anonymous | October 26, 2008 9:57 PM

who the fuck cares, he's a fucking beast either way.
drummer as well. last time i saw them he mustve broken like 10 pairs of sticks.
mathrock is back and very very noisy!!!
