More than just poor taste

I've always struggled to explain to people why the purveyors of bad music aren't only responsible for a tasteless aesthetic.

Is there a deeper reason why...
  • James Blunt,
  • Keef and Mick,
  • Radiohead,
  • The Kaiser Chiefs
  • Pink Floyd,
  • Coldplay
  • Led Zep,
  • The Scissor Sisters
... or The Corrs should be dragged from their beds by a worker militia and summarily thrown from a high building?*

Well, scratch the bastards and see what crawls out ... every time.

(ta Padraig)

*Only joking. I really mean to say 'be given a jolly good ticking off in the reviews section of all good newspapers.

You're putting the Stones and Led Zep in the same category as the Corrs, James Blunt, and the Kaiser Chiefs? And you have the chutzpah to talk about tastelessness? Jeezo!

Fock me! You let boys in your band and see what happens?

You forgot Franz-fucking-Ferdinand

Well do ya, do ya, do ya wanna
Well do ya, do ya, do ya wanna

Well yes I wanna, I wanna wanna,
Yes I wanna, I wanna wanna introduce the twit Kapranos to the pointy end of a brick.

Did I mention the Kooks should be tarred and feathered?

And I really dislike the Arctic Monkeys.

The Stones? Jagger the Dagger as Mr Eugene MacDaniels - a truly great musician - once said. (cf Headless Heroes of the Apocalypse, which has J the D as aone of its tracks, and just about everything good Roberta Flack ever did, which he produced. Oh, and a little song called "Compared to What" which is worth everything that is by all or any on Paulies list.)

I have yet to plumb the depths of my hatred for Keef and Mick. The very sight of either of the twats, and I turn into my dad. Or the day my dad had a flamethower in his hands and 11 pints of scrumpy in his guts.

Hak. FF? Yes! Kooks ... remind me? Arctic Monkeys? Well.... may have to differ with you on that one. I quite like them.

Did someone say Roberta Flack? *swoon*

The Kooks - they're just so crazy

Paulie said...

I see what you're getting at with The Kooks. I did hear that 'Ooh Laa' on the wireless a few times, and it wasn't the worst earworm I've ever encountered.

Surely they're not as 'last fag and blindfold come the glorious day' egregioius as Snow Patrol though?

That said, I'm not about to go in to bat for them either...

hakmao said...

Funnily enough I was going to mention Snow Patrol - jayzuzmaryjosephandthetwelve disciplesonafuckingunicycle!

Currently on the telly is a documentary about The Who. Did you know that every human being on the planet looks like Pete Townshend if the representative image of said Human is of the Human's visage reflected from the converse of a spoon?

Funny old world innit?

Are you including barrett-era Floyd in this?

Paulie said...

No. 'Piper at the Gates of Dawn' and 'Relics' (and even bits of 'Saucerful..' are exempt from all charges.
