interesting reaction to Black Kids especially.
insert george lamb hate below...
without listening I assume the consensus was adele=good, rest=bad...?
quite the opposite in fact.
It's as if they set it up just to get on our nerves. The scores (out of 40, even though there were three panellists):
ADELE - Chasing Pavements (24)
BLACK KIDS - I'm Not Gonna Teach Your Boyfriend (19)
TING TINGS - Fruit Machine (19)
FOALS - Balloons (27.5)
DUFFY - Rockferry (27)
GLASVEGAS - Daddys Gone (33)
MGMT - Time To Pretend (35)
Which is quite interesting - until the Sound Of 2008 poll results came out I had no idea MGMT were so widely tipped.
...is it 'best new artist'? Or something else - most likely to sell product / best live act / something?
Whenever I see 'Duffy' I think of Stephen Tin Tin Duffy then realise it's not him being referred to then feel sad.
I want them to follow my around, soundtracking my life.
really cool people to boot. Benefiting from the fact that the write great and emotive songs and there isn't another act like em at the moment.
