Scott and Charlene's wedding https://twitter.com/shellzenner/status/260151472568807424
is a pretty awful name. in terms of album titles yeezus has to take the biscuit.
Especially as he used to be called Run DMT which is about a billion times better, and some bro-step bellend forced him to change it (even though he was using it first).
would be funny if the 'replace a similar sounding word with ironic slang' joke hadn't been done so much recently.
the appallingly named - Scott and Charlene's wedding and Merchandise. Almost guaranteed I will like them and so my work colleagues will find much hilarity when they ask me what Cds I have just bought or who is the band I am going to see. They still titter about Half Man Half Biscuit's name about 9 years after I first mentioned them
you can never be huge with a name like Ringo Deathstarr. Not that it is necessarily their intention I suppose. Also any band with swearing in the name, or AIDS or anything offensive. The thing I always think of is how do the members of Fuck Buttons for example explain to their Grannies what their band is called?
He's now called Stay Positive (formerly Stay+), which would be fine, but in context it's clearly a reference back to AIDS. Not sure why he was so desperate to associate himself with it tbh.
saw people go on about it on fb
makes me wince when I see it.
but still not good
and he sounds exactly as the same suggests- terribly earnest and, y'know, shit.
so maybe his other stuff isn't as cringey, but there is a certain earnestness about his lyrics. Not exactly Frank Turner levels i guess, but still a bit much for me. He's like the musical equivalent of those really shit 'mumblecore' films from a few years ago.
Destined to fail.
Terrible name then, hasn't aged well either.
Apparently they used to be called Run DMT also.
