To be fair to them, I quite liked 'Hot Fuss' when it came out. I was much younger though. An ex dragged me to see them in Lansdowne Road around that time and was amazed at how bad his singing was. He was atrocious. He made Ian Brown sound like  Aretha Franklin. 


God's Children- The Gutter Twins

Just started his book the other day, although I got distracted by others in the meantime. It's fair to say there are a few stretchers in it, but I can tell it's going to be enjoyable. 

That 'Saturnalia' is a very decent album. It tails off a bit at the end, but there are some great tracks. Afghan Whigs, like Lanegan's band, were two of the more creative and interesting bands from the grunge scene. It's probably even a bit unfair to shove the Whigs in with it.

Tricky- Hell is Round the Corner

Maxinquaye is still an unbelievable album. It sounds like it could have been released yesterday.

I like the three singles, but the rest of it is sh*te. A nothing album. I'm a bit annoyed I bought tickets for next year before it came out. Don't get it at all.

I tried to listen to that live thing they did for it too and it just bores me. A few people I know hate them for their lack of any attempt at originality, which I think is unfair on the first album but spot on for this. I would go as far as to say that it's awful! I think they got a bit carried away with themselves, but they are the critic's darlings so still got praised 

I was asked the other day to pick one song that you would want deleted from history and I picked 'Bloodbuzz Ohio', just ahead of 'Californication'. 'A Lucid Dream' is running them close now. LOL

Nah regardless of what you will say, you're doing this on purpose. Every song ever written and you land on these two?

Yes. It's a personal choice. The most pretentious awful lyrics of all time or the worst band I have ever heard? What the f**k is a 'Bloodbuzz'? You have no idea how much  I despise The National and their worst kind of hipster fans. Give me Bon Jovi or The Spice Girls any day of the week. f**k it, even give me that 'country and Irish' stuff my Grandfather listened to on a Sunday morning or Nickelback or Vanilla Ice or even Phil f**king Collins! Anything but a hipster mumbling illogical lyrics that are just so deep, man!
There's a restaurant here called 'Vanderlyle' after a 'The National' song called, and I sh*t you not, 'Vanderlyle Crybaby Geeks'. And my partner really wants to take me there and can't understand why I want to petrol bomb it over the name.LOL

I could go on all day about these ****s. It seems Baldie is the first person I have met who likes them who I don't think should be sent to a gulag. 

And the Red Hot Chili Peppers are just the worst. They were the favourite  band in school of anyone that didn't really like music. They released the same song about fifty times, but that one that mentioned above seems to have followed me around my whole life. Despite being sh*te, it is continually on in parties and houses and turns up on playlists are when some troglodyte gets to the jukebox first on a Friday night and makes you reassess your life choices. Nick Cave absolutely nailed it about them, but then that's a genius who knows how to be musically pretentious. A rare gift.

I get that some people might hate The Birdie Song', or whatever, more. I don't. sh*te novelty songs have some sort of place and purpose and they aren't pretentious wank. Coldplay or Athlete are bands I can go months without thinking about or being reminded of, but I can't walk into town without being reminded of the aforementioned ****s. And no doubt I will be talking to someone in a pub or whatever again soon who will suddenly feel the urge to tell me how some pretentious wank of a lyric made them change their life and become a ****. It happens way more than it should

Now, I need to wipe my arse.

That's quite a Sunday morning rant.

Those two songs still outrank much of the utter dirge there is out there and i would much rather listen to them time and time again than say "livin on a prayer"

Ive seen the National in concert and i will admit, failed to be enthused. Mind you this was the day after a heavy Liam Gallagher gig. I do like some of their songs i.e. The system only dreams in total darkness which lyrically doesny make much sense at all but either does a Whiter Shade of Pale or many lauded songs.
