It was between that and 'Lidl, Carling, Primark, Maccy D's, Henry Lloyd and Greggs'. Probably.
I didn't see this one.
They're doing it for the people, not for themselves. Remember that.
"They truly are the voice of the people"
music for my dick, why dont they just fuck off!
bands have been using the word "people" whenever they want to patronise us in a "you're with us or you're against everyone" sort of way...
to be fair that kind of statement is as myopic as the corpse humping press that has built up her matyrdom. They are a band I don't like yes, but I'm sure in there only little minds they truely believe that that is what they are producing.
I think that the main bone of contention for me would be the definition of the word people...
'The View' are the biggest pile of over-hyped rubbish, this side of the Milky Way. Or perhaps that's The Wombats? Or maybe even just 99.9% of all those other bands who tour with NME, and whose members look like skinny little prepubescents. I will always grudgingly listen to music written by young boys who've only just got the vote - they'll have to be really good for me to swallow my pride and admit I like them to polite company. If there's one thing I can't stand more than young s****y bands, that's young s****y bands who make no effort to appear as anything other than a young. The Enemy may actually be alright but I spit on them for being Y.O.O.F.
if that's what they're trying to do, then they're quite entitled to call their album that. Not that I like The Enemy in the slightest, but I'm sure a UK-wide Carling Academy tour in March might go someway to suggest that the music that they make is quite popular. If we disregard it is a bit of a boring album name, it's actually pretty accurate.
would be more accurate
I really hope a band use this as an album title, I'd buy it regardless
more interesting record collections than The Enemy, there's bound to be a few things in theirs that you wouldnt expect.
They're a superb bunch of guys and this parody band of theirs simply superb. A Spinal Tap for the 21st Century, bravo!
*and obviously, by 'Ambassador' I actually mean Chairperson of the Workers Revolutionary Council.
from the people's kestrel.
I fondly imagine that there'll be more laments about the fate of the working man. Perhaps Master Clarke will hark back to his own arduous experience of life in the workforce. I used to have a weekend job at Argos too and believe you me, those 9 hour shifts could feel like the march on Stalingrad at times.
a weasel with Down's Syndrome.
I might plump for the weasel instead, they strike me as a good proletarian species who are always up for a laugh and have little respect for the existing societal hierarchy. Very much the Bedford Rascal of the woodland wildlife scene.
are you suggesting that the soul inherent in the little weasels face(I definitly prefer weasel with downs) as a result of his suffering does not at least have parity with Lady Day or Nina Simone.I don't think either of them had to endure the humiliation of not recieving the pink power ranger for christmas even after they had dropped massive hints and it was on their lists and everything.
destined to be ignored by the classist drownedinsound.com bourgeoisie, you bigoted elitists should all be ashamed of yourselves
We've got another one! Set the dogs on him and throw him on the fire when they're done, there's a good chap.
I really couldn't give a burberry gloved handjob what jobs those chaps from Coventry's parents did or which school they went to, I just don't like it because it bores my ears.
the cries of the proletariat fall on deaf ears
yet they are called The Enemy. They should really make up their minds. Or rather their record company pr team should. and the frontman is like gollum if instead of living in a shithole cave, lived in coventry. So just a shithole then.
i think i prefer scouting for girls
And I heard that they are actually from Leamington Spa, which is quite posh really. I think the whole working class schtick is a bit of an act.
which is even posher. pretty sure they're all from relatively middle-class backgrounds. not that it matters at all.
aunt in the music biz innit? job's a good'un. don't like them at all, but away from here is terrace-chant gold, no matter who wrote it.
Not that I like them enough to buy one of their records but they seem to mean what they sing about (even if it is derivative) and they've got a bit of bite live.
I recently saw them doing "Had Enough" at some festival or other. The singer barks like his knackers are being grated.
...I saw this on TV. I didn't go along and watch.
They'd just got signed, sounded like a terrible Arctic Monkeys rip-off with Oasis chords and faux arrogance. I said to someone the next day "I think I've just seen the worst band ever!", not thinking I'd hear of them again. I did.
Apparently they're well aware this working class indie bullshit is fast on its way out so they're hammering it before bands like these fall off the face of the earth - which it's fair to say, they will do very soon.
