The Indier than thou
Only likes artistes daarling. Posers who dislike all "commercial" music, eg any band that dares to have to many people liking it. Will only like music if suitably obsure, one of the most annoying traits is liking bands untill they "make it". how is that logical? They still play the same music!
Favorite topic of conversation: How they disliked a band before everyone else.
Spawn rubbish prentenious "progressive" bands such as vichy government and misty's big adventure. Not to mention the scrounge of the indie world, limited edition 7 inches. The reason its limited edition is because its rubbish and no one wants to buy, expect the also limited number of twats who thinks its cool.
Anyway this is making me too angry so I may stop this little series and come back to it at another time, give my blood pressure a break.

Right, new weeks resolution...I will actually keep this journal since im now beyond bored at work...so todays topic is going to be music and "the scene" and precisely how much I hate it.
I talk of this because on friday I went to a brillant gig at the Red Star camberwell, everyone there were a group of the lovelyest people imaginable and it was unbelieving refreshing to be surrouded by normal people at a gig not scensters. There was a band which played jaunty country music with a double bass and violin. Everyone danced a sort of hybriad barn dance with arms linked obvious to the fact their carefully moussed fringes might get messed up. Both the band and the audience were simply there to have a good time and meet people. It was
So time for a quick study of the various sub species of scenester and study what they are in their own ways doing to destroy the music man:
The Libertines Kid: always underage, never actually saw the libertines but are intent on telling you how many times they have met/shagged/been abducted by pete doherty and cohorts. Also prone to outrageous statements such as:
"Artic Monkeys are going to be the next beatles"
Hype merchants in the utmost with the result that good bands such as the aforementioned AM get hyped to a degree they can never keep up.
As well as destroying good bands their fixation with the libs spawn bands such as The Others, Dogs and The Paddingtons. All of which are more interested in telling you how much crack they have smoked than actually playing any SHOCK SHOCK HORROR music.
As im shortly about to leave the workplace (cant stay a minute more than necessary) the next installment will have to wait untill tomorrow)

Wow south London is obviously the hot bed of terrorist activity. There are armed police everywhere and according to the news they keep arresting people and occasionly shooting them.
NO MORE JUMPING THE BARRIERS methinks.
