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.
would be funny if the 'replace a similar sounding word with ironic slang' joke hadn't been done so much recently.
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).
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.
Destined to fail.
Terrible name then, hasn't aged well either.
Apparently they used to be called Run DMT also.
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.
