has just played the new slipknot single. I am transported back to 2002 and not enjoying it.
she is the most annoying woman ever.
she thinks she is knowledgeable about music/the music industry.
she is not.
It'd be preferable to me if she was merely a fuckwitted identikit T4 type. At least they don't attempt to suggest preferences and theories of their own which are invariably wrong and invariably informed by whatever press release their assistant just read as de facto truth.
(see what I did there?)
I don't care for Jo Whiley so much.
I can't quite figure out why i hate her...I just do. Anyone remember when she interviewed Mark E Smith after he got NME Goldlike Genius award? She asks him a question and his reply is "who the fuck are you?". Hilarious. The best she could reply with was to repeat it back to him, which kind of didn't work because he'd just won Godlike Genius award.
she was half of a wonderful team that did a great job of promoting new and unheard of music back in the early nineties - her and steve lamacq were an absolute joy to listen to back then... so I'm prepared to believe that she has or at least used to have a broad knowledge of music based on that.
What is annoying is that she has pissed it away in favour of being matey with showbiz nobodies and destroyed whatever relevance she had... Steve Lamacq's record label released idlewild's Captian among other things, Jo Wiley has, umm, is friends with George Michael...
reminds me of my friends mum. She used to make her kids wear massive cricket helmets every time they played, even though we were about 8 and the ball was traveling about 4mph.
kick my radio!!
Easily my least favourite person alive, but I listen wen i can as I enjoy how much she annoys me! Actually, the other day they unearthed a worse person than her; the relationship advisor. All her advice was lie to your partner! cheat on them! fuck around!
Was dire and I nearly wrote and complained but it would have made me sound like a Daily Mail reader.
of sending in fake, unspeakably earnest, yet brilliantly middle class changing tracks?
She was begging for more this morning.......it might be time.
One of the funniest things ever.
Just for the record I truly hate Jo Whiley and evrything she has ever done to harm music.
She is a snidey little cow.
I chucked a golf ball at her in rage backstage at Reading 2 years ago. A bit lame of me really!
You tried to kill her?
That's taking it one stage further...
Jo Whiley - Pretentious Bitch.
"Id leave her head on a spear in bowmans studio to warn her about being a total fucking clone of Jo Whiney. As for the slaying, I think give her loads of acid, and put her in front of a decent metal band. She'd obviously run screaming, but the only exits would contain, variously, a drop of about 50ft into a skip full of old syringes and glass, a lake of boiling plastic made from coldplay cds, and a spike lined room containing angry murderous hillbilly dwarves with john peel masks on, and several rabid wolves. All of which would contain giant neon signs reading 'YOU ARE AN UTTER SHITEHAWK'"
interview on You Tube
Her sneering falseness when talking about 'new' bands she has 'discovered', and her way of acting so high and mighty because she once played Coldplay before they were massive.
She can fuck right off.
equally humourless fans/listeners, and I find that highly depressing. I assume they are mainly kids. Kids who will grow up to be equally earnest and humourless as contestants on Deal or No Deal.
should be the sad indictment of Slipknot's woeful new single that it is being played on Radio 1 during the day.
....there is now 2 of them, what with that edith bowman trollop....
but none of them are as bad as Scott Mills...or Fearne Cotton. Annie Mac is a knob too.
then can I put in a word for Colin Murray ? Careerist blagger, friend of the stars and cunt.
and it's largely unwarranted.
Some of the vitriol on here, like she deserves to die for example, is just uncalled for.
I never listen to her myself but I can't see why people would get so angry about her. Is it worth it ?
you seem so worked up if you don't listen to her? Either YOU HATE WOMEN or much like the school kid who kicks their secret crush in the shin in double maths YOU FANCY HER. Lalalala you fancy her. You want to kiss her lalalala.
I like Edith. She's all perky and smiley, and actually does try to play as much good stuff as she can instead of just rattling off rubbish about the ting tings that her researcher's told her. Edith Bowman had Cold War Kids as a record of the week last year and they became one of my favourite bands.
Scott mills though - TWAT. I went on his show inadvertantly once and he was horrible to me. :-(
also knows fuck all about music.
annie mac knows her stuff though and can actually 'DJ'
Scott Mills at least has never claimed to be knowledegable about music!
but now, now. No need for that.
she's not shagging any of The Editors and getting them shoehorned into the screening schedule of every festival they're covering every year.
Stop wanting her to die, fuck's sake, waste of good vitriol.
You know, those people who want to work 'in the media' regardless of what kind and what the focus was.
I remember on one evenisng session Lamacq and Whiley talekd about how they got to their respective positons..lamacq was a well respected joruna at the NME, Jo Whiley got a media hnd and worked in any radio/station/magazine that will have her until she ended up at radio 1.
I do despise people like that.
When I see her on tv with her legs and bare feet cureld up under her I want to vomit...It reminds me of an evening session program when she took her boots off and everyone in the studio started complaining about the smell
I remember at the time of her self named show, her feet were least I say unattractive and I started to call her "Monster munch feet". When she first started tv with Peely I thought she was okay in her indie clothes and Dr Martens, but then she just decided to be the biggest media cocksucker of all time.
Ha, christ. You strange person.
I don't like her at all really, everytime she laughs she sounds as though she's really bitter that someone's managed to amuse her.
try and walk off the Wiley show because the records they were playing before they had their session were so spectacularly shit?
I think that is why he only did Peel shows after.
this is true
She had to explain to him (and these are a version of her words) that her show is a broad church and all musical styles were welcome. It apprently really hurt her as she was such a fan. Or her team of thumbs in the air music advisers had told her to be.
but... not as bad as george lamb!
I used to like Mark and Lard.
The sound is a little out of sync with the pictures and the Jo Whiley bit is at the end but its worth watching it all. I think I remembered wrong what Mark says to her but he still treats her with amusing disdain.
they were throwing a strop about playing on the jo whiley show and I remember reading that john peel had to be contacted swiftly to talk jack into playing, I listened to this at work and you could hear them soundchecking ultraloud while Jo did her links :D First song? "I Think I Smell A Rat" :D
Jo Whiley DID book Nirvana on The Word though, it must be said...
fucking hell mark e smith is a twat
Jo Whiley is a bigger twat
nah, not quite.
is a twat who fronts one of the best British bands of the last 30 years, influence on many of the bands you like.
Jo Whiley is just a twat.
Whiley's husband is the manager of most of the ITV indie bands she champions on the radio.
Nothing fishy about that.
^^ my thoughts exactly, don't listen to her if you don't like her.
Turn off the telly and radio and sit in the dark with our arms folded and not air our opinions.
WTF. Is it really that hard not to listen to Radio One or watch piss poor music shows on Channel 4.
Or are you just being a complete idiot who can find no rationale for moaning about a women constantly that has been done so many times before it is almost like shooting fish in a barrell.
moaning is in my blood. And if something's worth moaning about, it's worth moaning about for all time. Start a thread moaning about people who moan about easy targets. You'll feel a lot better.
As nothing will change and it is a complete waste of time moaning about it. No one ever gives any viable solutions to these moans either most of the time, on DIS too many people moan almost embarrassingly about shit pop indie rock in an almost "higher than thou" attitude when in reality they are just repeating what others have said thousands of times before them and achieve absolutely nothing in moaning about it.
Same with Jo Whiley, it's too easy to complain and it's almost cliched.
Is it really that hard not to read this thread.
someone should take note then. Why do people feel so inclined to voice their discontent if they feel it not to be so cathartic? in a stimulating the bowels kind of way.
radio stations than radio one you berk.
