The Brits Travesty

Firstly, Happy Birthday to xionin. Hope you're enjoying yourself today.

So, will I be watching the Brits tonight?

I bloody well hope not, but I'm visiting my mum and she has very poor music taste (Gareth Gates? My ears!), so there's always a chance. I have no idea who is nominated, but I bet Eighties Matchbox B-Line Disaster aren't up for much. Damn.

As a music lover, I have been blissfully unaware of the charts for many a year and only the odd piece of shite masquerading as a pop band ever penetrates my music censor (set to 'alternative').

I'm hoping Courtney Love will turn up and be embarrassing. She's always a good bet. (I suspect she's still on the run the states though).

Please, please, whatever deity is listening, spare my ears tonight or let someone with some actual talent, rather than some record company's Karaoke puppet(s) win.

I'm not holding on to a lot of hope.

I am alone at home with a fifteen year old girl, so I am doomed to watch it. Shudder!

For some reason we sat through it although no one in the room actually liked any of it (except Muse and Duran Duran) - it's amazing how often the mute button was used. How boringly vanilla it all was, where was the scandal? Where was Javis Cocker ehen you need him?

Bring back punk, please!

Staying well away, although my taste is becoming depressingly mainstream. I'd like to see Annie Lennox get best female artist - but she won't. And maybe the Coral, or maybe Radiohead, or Feeder (I've developed a strange liking for Feeder), but they are up against Stereophonics... Otherwise - it all sounds like a load of rubbish.

My son likes *shudder* Busted. But he's only 7.

At least Busted have guitars, there's hope for him yet - but he'll need his ears changed.

I was hoping The Coral would win but no.

They didn't? Bummer.

No. Them and Goldfrapp woz robbed!

i find that things like that are sometimes better with the sound turned down and a good CD playing in the background.

btw...thanks for the birthday wishes. ;]


Didn't get the oppotunity to drown it out, although it could be said that it already was with a triple chorus of "WHO?" every time someone new was introduced.

And someone I never heard of murdered The Lovecats. They'll never be forgiven.

Hanging would be too good for them.

It's a serious point though. I feel like my music collection is being raped.

believe me, it's happening on both sides of the pond.


Yeah, because it's cheap and requires no talent as long as they look good in a mirco-skirt.

Thankfully, I didn't see it. Heard on the news though that The Darkness (WHO?!!) were up for no less than 4 awards.

As a music lover, I have been blissfully unaware of the charts for many a year and only the odd piece of shite masquerading as a pop band ever penetrates my music censor (set to 'alternative').

I realised very early on in life that if I wanted to cut back on my levels of frustration, I would never listen to the charts if I could help it. A resolve I've stuck to doggedly over the years. As a result, I am blissfully unaware of most of the boybands, girlbands, kiddie bands and rubbish bands output -- much to my colleagues' bewilderment, I am genuinely unable to hum a single bar of Gareth Gates' latest offering, or name anyone who was in Idols.

And someone murdered The Lovecats, you say? Burn 'em in effigy!

Burning would be too good for them!

This La la land where music is decent, is wonderful isn't it? I'm too scared to stick my head out the door!

Unfortunately, The Darkness are familiar to me. They hurt my ears and aren't funny.
