it IS a competition and FF won.
end of thread
*FF seemed great from what I saw on TV though.
despite seeing both and thinking both were great.
FF looked a pile of badly executed drainpipe trouser toss on the Telly. Blur weren't far behind, I thought the days of hearing shit like girls and boys, country house etc were over. Sadly I was wrong.
they sounded like broken machinery.
i'd have thought that in the 6 years since i saw them play one of the worst gigs i've ever witnessed (Nottingham Social, 2003) they'd have finally learnt to play their instruments... clearly not.
It's amazing they won, what with having only one song.
with the exception of Dizzee, who was phenomenal. They were great! I wished they'd shown some more (any) of the good stuff from the dance tents.
when people constantly use the 'cant play their instruments' lark.
id totally forgotten about ff tbh but thought they put on a great show, the bassist has some groove and the lead guitarist has some nice quirky chops.
but FF really can't.. well, can't play their own songs correct, in time and tune with eachother, it seems. to me at least. made it sound like an angry cement mixer, and it was no different in 2003... or during their legendary 2005 performance at the brit awards.
