The Alliez really annoy me

Actually disappointed you had to do a write up on a band that follows the Sublime paradigm. For god's sake musicians, get over the Sublime type-casting. I wish Bradley Nowell were still alive to beat you and Pepper down for imitating his soul, presence and vocal stylings.
Also personally glad Kate didn't write this article, she has retained her credibility by not covering a flash in the pan copy-cat band.
There is truth to the fact the this generation has been dumbed down musically. The Alliez are exacty that....nothing new to offer other than being sorta-local and cool.
To quote Ynez at the end of the article, "Because when these guys make it big, we'll all be bragging that they're from Maui, and we saw them first"
---Think not, I'd be ashamed that they'd represent Maui when so many more awesome musicians live and work here, although they aren't hip, cool, 'in', sexy, rad, seen at the parties etc.
This is a rant on their music, not the boys personally. They are cool dudes really.
