This is quite a good article from yesterday’s Independent on Sunday:
The only thing I wonder is why has it taken the mainstream press so long to cotton on that the world is being sold wave upon wave of generic identikit shite? It’s been thus for many years, with NME churning “best new band in Britain” claimants almost weekly – all of whom have one tenth-hand idea between them.
Still, hopefully the indie-cattle are tiring of being forcefed tasteless straw. Maybe mainstream music is about to get interesting again. I’m not holding my breath.
