JUST MUSING ON A SUPPOSED BRETT ANDERSON QUOTE FROM TODAY'S SUN
BRETT SAYS AND I QUOTE:
"There has always been cr*p pop music.
I remember when we had all the crap boybands in the 90s — stuff like that has always been around.
The lack of money in the music industry created a crisis.
Record companies don't have the resources to take a gamble, so these pop stars are created by committee."
NOW THIS WAS AT THE HEIGHT OF WHAT WAS BRITPOP AND MAINSTREAM INDIE.
RECORD COMPANIES DON'T/DIDN'T HAVE THE RESOURCES TO GAMBLE?
I THINK NOT …
ANY QUARTER-DECENT 3 CHORD KNOBHEADS COULD AND DID GET A DEAL IN THE 90'S ….
I WON'T NAME NAMES COS IT WOULD BE UNFAIR ON
ECHOBELLY, SHED 7, SYMPOSIUM, MENSWEAR, SLEEPER,
HURRICANE NUMBER 1, RIDE, THE BLUETONES (APART FROM THAT ONE SONG),
OCEAN COLOUR SCENE (APART FROM THAT ONE SONG...HANG ON NAH NOT EVEN THAT SONG)
NORTHERN UPROAR, CHAPTERHOUSE, CURVE, SALAD, ADORABLE, CUD, SPACEHOG,
KULA SHAKER, THE AUDIENCE, POWDER, KING MAKER, GENEVA (SUB-SUEDE - CAN YOU IMAGINE?)
SHOULD I GO ON? COS I CAN AND THEY SURE FUCKING DID
I FEEL SORRY FOR THE PEOPLE WHO ARE TOO BIGOTED TO APPRECIATE THE LATTER
THE WORLD'S A LOT MORE EXCITING WITH A ONE DIRECTION IN IT
AND MORE HEARTS WILL GENUINELY RACE AT A NEW 1D ALBUM
THAN THEY EVER HAVE OR WILL AT ANY SUEDE ALBUM IN ANY TIME PERIOD
SORRY ABOUT THE TRUTH
PLEASE SAY HELLO TO YOUR DRUMMER
HE WAS CONSISTENTLY LOVELY WITH ME
YOURS IN POP
