"The Hottest Record In The World Today!"

I'm afraid Richard Ashcroft has now forgotten how to write songs that are even half decent. I'm actually embarrassed for him, and for Chris Martin who oh so recently called him "the best singer in the world." Maybe at one time, but now he's as gay as James Blunt. Have a listen to his new single "Break The Night With Colour", with a grand introduction from Radio 1.

Monkey Talk

I'm not quite sure what I think of Arctic Monkeys, they didn't blow me away at bower, but I can't say I hate them (I know you're disappointed). Unlike CYHSY, DoP, WAS (and all those bands I hate) Arctic Monkeys are kids (not 30 year olds pretending to be kids), so they deserve a little time to make some mistakes and figure some shit out before I jump on them for sucking. When I figure out whether or not they suck, I'll be sure to let you know... in the meantime, do some reading...

ATT: We Are Scientists, Please Go Back To Science School


Everyone always complains about girls not being honest, not saying what they mean… so I’ll be honest, maybe even blunt and say exactly what I mean… I HATE We Are Scientists. I hate them a lot. I may even hate them more than I hate DoP… and trust me, that’s a lot. Right about now you’re probably wondering… “MC, why do you hate WAS?”… its simple really… I hate them because they’re terrible, pretentious, snide, little hipster bastards and I wish I could shove their jagged little guitar lines and their 16th note hi hats down their throats until they choke on their own shitty music. God damn it! I guess they didn’t get the memo I put out to all bands… for all of you not in bands (or for those of you in bands that SOMEHOW didn’t get the memo) I will publish the memo below:

MEMO:
To: All Bands
From: Manhattan Carnivore

WE DON’T NEED ANYMORE JAGGED DANCY BANDS. PLEASE CEASE AND DESIST IMMEDIATELY, OR I WILL BE FORCED TO GET YOU DRUNK, BREAK YOUR GUITAR OVER YOUR HEAD AND DRAG YOU HOME TO YOUR PARENTS HOUSE IN THE SUBURBS AND SHOW YOU TO YOUR MOTHER AND SCREAM INTO HER WRINKLY FACE, “YOU THINK YOUR SON IS DOING SO WELL MOVING OFF TO NYC, WELL LOOK AT THIS!!! THIS IS WHAT YOUR SON HAS BECOME! A USELESS DRUNK IN A JAGGED DANCE BAND. I HOPE HE’S MAKING YOU PROUD.” THEN YOUR MOTHER WILL FEED ME A NICE HOME COOKED MEAL AND THANK ME FOR BRINGING THIS TO HER ATTENTION, ALL THE WHILE SHOWING ME EMBARRASING HIGH SCHOOL PHOTOS OF YOU AND THEN SHE WILL PAY FOR MY TRIP BACK TO NYC. SO, DO THE WORLD (AND YOURSELF) A FAVOR AND STOP!!!

Ok, so that was the memo… now back to WAS. God, they’re fucking terrible! Here’s a lyrical sample of their terribleness (yes, terribleness is a real word):

Lyrical Sample of WAS Terribleness:
The day you move
I'm probably going to explode
It's true, I'm probably going to explode
Oh oh oh oh, woah oh oh oh oh
You'll pray for proof,
I'm probably making this up
It's true, I'm probably making this up
Oh oh oh oh, woah oh oh oh oh

Because my body is your body
I won't tell anybody
If you want to use my body
Go for it, yeah

I was almost about to analyze those lyrics to explain to you how terrible they are, but then I realized that there’s really nothing to analyze and that anyone with any sense what so ever will immediately understand how terrible those lyrics are… but if there is any doubt… just go listen:
http://www.wearescientists.com/music/s_nobodymove_hi.php


WAS have successfully blended hipster jagged guitar dance punk with emo. Congradu-fucking-lations lads, this combination equals an appalling mess that can’t quite be considered music.

And who the fuck do WAS think they are having an “advice” section on their website? Kids you’ll get better advice from the guys standing outside a methadone clinic than you will from WAS, for Christ’s sake, just listen to their music..(I know its painful and I’m really not advocating listening to WAS, but just listen for a second)… see… its terrible, you can’t trust guys who make terrible music to be giving you advice.

My advice to you: DO NOT LISTEN TO WE ARE SCIENTISTS.

My advice to WAS: QUIT.
