bands who 'don't pretend to be anyone else'.
I love this idea that if you exaggerate how very normal you are, make a virtue of your abject banality then you're being honest. but if you dress up and put on a show and run your mouth off a bit in order to be entertaining then you're a big old phoney.
all musicians are performers too. anything beyond standing motionless on stage is some form of artifice. a song is a beautiful lie.
