Emo vs Scene

Many people wonder what the difference is between emo and scene. Unlike the question, "Which came first, the chicken or the egg?", this is rather easy to answer. In terms of labels, emo came first. But what is emo and how did scene come from it?

Emo kids are different from scene kids, though it's often hard to tell them apart. For the most part, emo kids keep dark colored hair, usually black or dark brown. Though they are outgoing in their own groups, they are more shy publicly. Emo kids tend to stick with their own groups, are more artistic in nature, and enjoy the calmer things in life.

Scene kids, on the other hand, are much more active. They're called so because they like to be seen and be part of the local music culture. These kids typically attend a lot of concerts. They enjoy music and being apart of the local music atmosphere. They typically support local music groups, indy bands, and a harder variety of emo music known as screamo.

Like emo kids, scene kids have existed long before there was a label for them. As you can call anyone who expresses their emotions freely emo, you could also call anyone who attends lots of local bands concerts, scene.

Many scene kids hate to be called emo. And in fact, many aren't emo at all, even though the fashion sense is quite similar. On the other hand, some emos are scene. What they're called really depends on which label they wish to fall under.

Panic at the Disco's new album is inspired by their parents

The emo rockers are currently working on their as-yet untitled follow-up to this year's 'Pretty, Odd' and say they have been heavily influenced by artists their mothers and fathers listened to when they were growing up.

Frontman Brandon Urie explained: "We were listening to some bands that maybe we had heard from our parents but never discovered for ourselves.

"There's so much music we haven't discovered from 30 years ago or more. We're still trying to pick up on that stuff."

Despite having a gap of almost three years between their first two albums, Brandon promises fans will have a much shorter wait for their next album because they have been working so prolifically.

He added to Billboard magazine: "We have between 15 and 18 main ideas for songs we want to get started. We've been writing non-stop since we finished recording. I guess we kind of lost our anxiety of writing on tour. We never used to do that. We used to think we needed an environment to sit down and create, but we realized all we need is a few instruments and the four of us, just throwing ideas together."

Where did Plushgun come from? The band was started by Daniel Ingala in the cramped confines of his overpriced and undersized bedroom in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. While writing a song on his acoustic guitar, Daniel had an idea: “What if I added some synths to this?” And synths he added, creating a song called “Just Impolite”, which he posted to his Myspace page in early 2007. Within months, through word of mouth, the project spread from one fan to another until it was heard by RagTag Productions, who approached Daniel about using his music in their popular web-tv series, “We Need Girlfriends.” Dan also posted a few songs on OurStage.com, which enables music fans to discover emerging music and rate the music. Plushgun quickly hit #1 on OurStage’s Alternative Rock channel in January 2008.

After writing "Just Impolite," Ingala found himself needing a band name. For this he asked the advice of Stephen Colbert, before the taping of an episode of the Colbert Report. Colbert suggested "The Relevant Elephants." And by that he meant "Plushgun."

When people started to demand live shows, Dan was scared. It was just him and a computer, and computers tend to be terrible showmen. So he asked for help from past acquaintance, guitarist, and showman extraordinaire Taylor Armstrong to bring this project to the live stage, and the fans who’ve caught these live shows are still dancing!

How to describe Plushgun? The songs are nostalgic, poppy, dance-able, and surprisingly deep, not to mention addictive. Whether they are about chasing dying romances ("Just Impolite"), high-school anxiety ("How We Roll") or angst-riddled anthems for a lost generation ("Dancing in a Minefield,") Plushgun tackles these themes with unabashed catchiness in an electrolicious soundscape.

Look for Plushgun’s debut album in January 2009. In the meantime, the 4 songs you hold in your hand will be released digitally on August 19, followed by a video for “Just Impolite” directed by Tyler Shields. But, if you can’t wait until September, you can check out the first video for “Just Impolite” featuring a brawl between Tyler Shields and Rainn Wilson here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ld-YqPs2m3U

You can also download the 'Just Polite' mp3 here.

The Russian government outlawing 'emo'

The Russian government is in the process of drafting a law to make emo and goth music illegal, says the Moscow Times.

"The Duma last month held a parliamentary hearing on a raft of proposed amendments contained in a document called 'Government Strategy in the Sphere of Spiritual and Ethical Education,'" a copy of which was obtained by The Moscow Times.

Among other measures, the proposed legislation apparently calls for heavy regulation of emo web sites and for banning young people dressed like emos from entering schools and government buildings.

According to the bill, The "negative ideology" of emo culture may push young people toward depression and social withdrawal, and the movement carries a significant risk of suicide, especially for young girls."

The Times says "The bill also outlines what it calls a 'spiritual and ethical crisis' facing Russian youth, including the high rate of alcohol abuse, teen abortions and 'negative youth movements.'

Just leave it to the Russians to try to avoid change. Hey, its why you lost the cold war you stupid fucks.

Emo Band Accused of Ripping Off Counting Crows' Artwork

Alphabet Arm, the design studio responsible for designing a logo for Counting Crows back in 2005, has accused pop punk band Cute Is What We Aim For of copying their design.

On their blog, Alphabet Arm wrote:

At the beginning of last year, Cute Is What We Aim For's management contacted us about doing some merch designs for the band. They informed us the band liked our work, namely a design we did for Counting Crows back in 2004 or 2005. After some back and forth over pricing we were informed they were going to concentrate on the merch design in-house and contact us later. We never heard anything back. Just this morning we came across the cover of their new album… coincidence? You decide.

The logos are strikingly similar, as anyone can see with a quick glance. Alphabet Arm has not announced whether it plans to pursue legal action against Cute Is What We Aim For, though it's pretty obvious the studio would have a tight case.

You can read the article and view the logos here.
