Paul McCartney - Chaos And Creation In The Backyard  ||| Franz Ferdinand - You Could Have It So Much Better 
Most of my life I have viewed the great Sir Paul McCartney with contempt. I know I know he was in The Beatles! I also know he was that head-shaking irritating little scouse twat that had the audacity to bring out a song so repulsive it makes my hair stand on end just remembering it: The Frog chorus. For fucks sake there is no excuse for such madness. Well, except perhaps 'madness'.
Not too long ago before your very eyes on this blog, I gave him the kudos I thought he deserved after I had listened to some old and rare Beatles bootlegs. His voice was good and he brought a lot more to the band than I had ever realised in the past.
So Paul McCartney=Good Singer.
Good singer or not, he is still that irritating twat -who sang the froggy song- to me and probably always will be. You see his latest album, much anticipated by myself, is nothing short of a bunch of old ideas and the efforts of an ageing hippy who is blatantly clinging on to days gone by and trying to make a bit of cash from a product he has sold and resold so many times it sounds all too familair and insipid straight away.
I recommend you go to any charity shop and randomly select one of his old albums (which you are guaranteed to find there. Why is that?) then take it home and just play that instead.
Paul McCartney, it's a shame he was the one left to try and keep convincing the world just how talented he is or was because erm..he isn't.
Listen at your peril....
