Man, these people suck

Tuesday 27 February (2007)

So, we go to this pub called the parrot because all drinks are £1.50 on a Monday. And fucking Numa Numa comes on, and people go wild. Like Ozzy Osbourne has just walked into the building wild. And I find myself thinking… ‘are people really this shit?’

They played M.C. Hammer too, to incredible reception. In fact the whole night through there was only really two half-decent songs – Smells Like Teen Spirit (clearly so commercial that the M.C. Hammer crowd can enjoy) and some old trance track by Alice DJ that I only really like because I used to listen to it in Jillys (dance hour) when I was on pills.

Are people really this shit? The sad answer is yes. Half-drunken moan, over and out.

    Don’t forget Message In A Bottle! That’s a good song 🙂

    Lol yes i dont think the drunkards give a monkeys. Ive been going out to “student nights” in Newcastle for 4 years, and 2 years before that to Squires on a Monday – youd easily be forgiven for thinking there were only 3 hours worth of songs ever made in the world.
    Some come on and you just drunkenly sigh and shrug your shoulders as you think, for the love of God not again (Bon jovi, Chesney hawks?).
    As an aside i was out on Saturday night at Wiggle http://www.mynsu.co.uk/DisplayPage.asp?pageid=16010 and i wasnt even that drunk by my standards. So the morning after i ask the missus if she can remember any songs at all they played as all i could remember was the Kooks. One song, ONE bloody song, when i was there for 3 hours – i think after 6 years of abuse my brain has cut out remembering the drivel.

    There’s nothing wrong with enjoying cheesy music, especially somewhere that’s £1 a pint. Besides, what else are they going to play? The standard CD of songs-most-people-kind-of-like is alright, really.

    Saying that, I went to a pound-a-pint pub last night,
    and they played the second Hear’say single, Year 3000 by Busted and Prince Charming! The rest was mostly indie bollocks put on by indie people in skinny jeans drinking skinny drinks, and you couldn’t really hear the music because everyone was chattering, but still! £1 a pint!

    You’re right, of course. They have to find a middle ground that, whilst not catering to everyone, at least offends the least amount of people.

    The problem is when people who don’t really listen to music outside of pubs/bars/clubs get subjected to the same repertoire over and over again and start thinking that ‘this is what good music is.’

    I’m a bit too much of an elitist pigdog when it comes to music I guess. But you, for example – a quick look shows me that your top bands include The Beatles, Dylan, The Flaming Lips, McFly, Dire Straights and Pink Floyd. Whilst I’m not a huge fan of (all) these bands, I can at least appreciate your individual taste. I mean, I’ve never heard Yoshimi Battles The Pink Robots in a club at least.
