Art Brut (and The Streets)

So much for 3pm. I had to struggle to get here by 6pm today. Oh well the world won't stop spinning.
It is already starting to irritate me the amount of conjecture and petty chatter regarding Michael Jackson; will he have a career; won't he have a career; is he guilty and got away with it; is he innocent and the victim of personal vendetta by the D.A; is he a weirdo with a fucked up face who really deserves none of this attention.
Ok I made the last one up but it's the most realistic in my opinion. Fuck CNN ABC BBC news 24 and Mr Jackson. Fuck 'em all.

That's better.
Now, Thank you to David for bringing this band to my attention. Never before heard of them and so I listened with a completel;y open mind.
did I like them?
Hmm. I have to say the jury is still out. They are quite punky which isn't a bad thing but they do have the unfortunate likeness to 'The Streets' whom have become one of my pet hates over the past year due to the amazing lack of talent voiced in the lead 'singers' erm..poetry.
The Streets are proof, if ever we needed any, that the general public will buy anything if it is marketed in the right way, I.e.with a matching irritating ringtone and a 'cutesy' lead singer who speaks/sings/talks of 'stuff you can relate to 'n that innit'. Bollocks.
So Art Brut. They are not The Streets and are not in the same irritation league I am glad to say. The songs are definitely entertaining and they get ten out of ten for originality but I do have a feeling the entertainment will not last and then I will be forced to refrain from listening to them again. Ever.
(Sorry David).
I'll let YOU decide.

Enjoy. Feedback would be great as I'd love to hear what others think of this lot.
More soon.

I avoid that nonsense by just not watching any television. News off the internet is better because you can pick and chose what you want to actually look at.

I'd like to request some Peel sessions in the future if you come across any.

Kudos on your blog thus far.

Yes. I should avoid television I suppose. I can't stand it but, as the PC is in the living room and my g/f may be watching it, I still get to hear it :*(
I will have a look around for any peel sessions soon ok.
thanks for the vote of confidence!
