How come they're such a dislikeable band?
When it comes to The Pigeon Detectives and The Enemy and all their clone bands, I can just sort of not bother about them at all.
But there's something really irritating about this band. Its not their ignorance towards Joy Division and other obvious influences that gets me. It could possibly be their terrible stage antics.
They just seem so assured that what they're doing has impact, and they're somehow a really serious force in modern music. In reality, they're no less boring than Starsailor and Travis. One decent-ish song doesn't save them, unfortunately.
His dancing is horrible + their song and video for 'Smokers at the hospital doors' are worse than My Chemical Romance.
