how i hate the irritating humourless haircut mockney twats on E4 music....
but who is truly the worst?
this morning. She was really, really bad.
but which one is baddest out of a bad batch?
but nah ah'm bahck and it's like so rahndom
she isnt even a looker ffs!
not quirky enough to be quirky therefor making some sort of awkward void where her personality should be
What is she to be drawing a living wage ahead of people with ability?
Our very own South East London 'It' girl Zezi Ifore seems to have tried it all before becoming an E4 Music presenter extraordinaire. Having dropped out of Oxford in her first year and moving back to the capital ‘because London seemed more fun’, she’s already managed to fit in editing cult fashion magazine Super Super, DJ’ing as part of the Coconut Twins (who count Lupe Fiasco as a fan) and starting a Myspace revolution without even realising it, all before her 23rd birthday.
And now here she is: appearing on an E4 tuned TV screen near you, interviewing artists, bigging up her favourite new acts and genuinely causing as much trouble as humanly possible.
To add to her ‘I’m dead cool me’ credentials, whilst partying, making songs up about biscuits and dancing to Whitney Houston, Zezi works in A&R for a massive music publisher. She’s also one half of DJ duo ‘Zapotecsoundsystem’ with our very own Nick Grimshaw. Expect them to pop up at wedding receptions and bar mitzvahs up and down the land; as well as the big hair and big mouths, they’ll be the ones getting on down to Whitney’s Greatest Hits.
So what Zezi doesn’t know about music probably isn’t worth knowing (or maybe it is, just to annoy her). And that, plus her appetite for the biggest bling we’ve ever seen, is why we think she’s great.
Fucking hell, they're not even hiding it any more!
the worrying thing is though that some of these people will oneday go onto fill the roles left by Steve Lamacq, Marianne Hobbs, Paul Morley, Stuart Maconie et cetera.
man's a cock
But my main point was that todays new blood are tomorrows elder statesman.
paul morley >>>>>>>>>>>>> this lot
but let's not kid ourselves that Morley is some sort of smart, interesting and talented writer with elegantly expressed opinions, unbesmirched by hype or sycophancy. That would be silly.
the same was probably said of Muriel Gray and that young kid who co-presented The Tube for a bit.
It's just that I was hoping for something better, maybe one of them will surprise me but it just seems that the whole media is dumbing down and that even though there are more channels to reach people, to reach certain niches, its the same bands that everyone in the media are championing.
Succintly put. I'll remember that one.
what a dreadful blurb. Another victory for We'll Make You Out To Be A Smug Cunt PR Consultants Ltd.
she worked for Super Super magazine, and The Coconut Twins are tragically bad as DJs.
Is the media so clueless as to hire novelty new rave idiots because they don't have a clue what's going on? It seems Nathan Barley *was* a documentary
or a description of their output?
in which case it makes it slightly better... although still fucking evil
her first two albums are genuinely awesome. She's no smartarse namecheck for deadeyed media spawn. FUCK THEM
wouldn't think this if you were in the main room at Chalk while it was still there, watching people dressed like her dancing ironically to I Wanna Dance With Somebody.
they ooze the same vapid irony over brilliant and shit artists alike, not having the confidence to say 'this is good, that is not'. Everything ends up covered in the same mediocre slime.
it's a wanker problem
but I'm referring to the element of London that is Media Wanker Central.
just not as many
Plenty of wankers, but none in the media as far as I'm aware.
in it's purest form.
is an ambassador for 'use a condom'. i don't think i need to add more...
I was going for a morrissey homage, but now everyone thinks I like nick grimshaw.
i have never even heard nick grimshaw and he fucking annoys me. thankfully his stature isn't high enough to yield a fruitful google image-search yet.
george lamb, he continually mispronounced my band's name and seemed genuinely shocked when i gave him a blank look after he shouted "wappen" at me.
he also had grey streaks in his hair, which was quite satisfying to notice.
is clearly the most irritating. How he even got a job at 6Music is beyone me (and pretty much everyone)
that to be a music presenter on TV in 2008 it seems a pre-requisite to know fuck all about music. The list is endless, I am not a massive Joy Division/ New Order fan but seeing Rick James trying to talk to Peter Hook about music on those JD Set shows is just painful for all involved.
Even that Tim Samuels guy on the Culture Show, which whilst it has dumbed down slightly hardly patronises the viewers, seems to just like what the producers have sent him along to see.
Surely there must be someone out there who can do a solid link to a camera, look half good and name more than one Smiths album out there?
admitted he'd never even heard of jeffrey lewis before doing an interview and covering a gig ?
oh, i hate that guy
