"I'm not sure whether I'm metrosexual, retrosexual, or all mouth and no trousers, but somewhere in here there's a man." Hiding behind a complete fucking cunt.
it's this level of depth and range that qualifies you as a broadcaster, commentator and host in the music industry huh?
as a 15 year old boy Dave Berry never imagined listening to Al Green, Kool & The Gang and Neil Diamond. That was until they featured on the motion picture soundtrack for Pulp Fiction, tracks by Al Green, Kool & The Gang and Neil Diamond were broken up with 'sweary' dialogue from the film. Listening to the 'sweary' monologues peppered between tracks by Al Green, Kool & The Gang and Neil Diamond made Dave Berry feel very naughty, it still does to this day. Royale with cheese.
for anyone who uses the word "tosh" in a comment
because when I think MAN I think Ed Sheeran
QUICK GIVE ME SOME IRON GIRDERS TO CHEW ON WHILST I LISTEN TO ED SHEERAN
however it is noticable that his beatles choice indicates that he has added this through reading polls and stuff and other celebs likes (which sometimes rate this as the best albumn ever) as every fule kno (or real fan of the beatles) this is not even the best beatles albumn.
i'd have to say that the Best Of is.
are just a genre skimmer cunt.
its dated terribly
They are albums every MAN should own.
like Lost in Translation, or Spirited Away.
now there's music for real men
"The illiterate belches of a cloth-eared peasant, perversely astonishing in its sheer banal predictability. Dave Berry embodies everything that is wrong with modern music. And I bet his clothes are crap as well."
Wanna team up and make a 5? As a 5 we could surely crush most of DiS!
I have Sarge Peppers (this one is not technically mine!), Dummy and Youth and Young Manhood.
So we're only a 4.
I just sent him this list and asked if he could confirm that he was/is a monumental thundercunt in real life.
Confirmation was swift.
As Body_In_The_Thames mentioned is thas the range and depth needed to qualify you for such a position.
Fuck me, what a monumentally shite list!
e.g. Alex Kapranos' favourite albums of all time
I'd Have to Say... 'The Best of the Beatles'
He makes a pretty solid argument for choosing it.
then check this out. Beyond parody.
"Hopefully you will get a better idea of my life over the next few weeks with a quick trip around my guide to modern living for the metrosexual male. Along the journey we will be having a look at some of Spencer's favourite things: adrenalin sports, fine-dining, luxury travel, fast cars and some even faster women"
but I'm assuming it's just 10 copies of Big Black's 'Hammer Party' surely?
(Yes I know it's a compilation, not an album).
'Emergency & I' by The Dismemberment Plan.
although to be fair to the lad Berry, this was #11 and narrowly missed out to Sheeran.
it never clicked for me before. really enjoying it now though. cheers, thanks for listening.
your life just got incrementally better.
I reconnected with it a bit this morning, felt good.
I'm gonna have to buy all these albums then
The Ideal Crash - dEUS
Siamese Dream - Smashing Pumpkins
Superunknown - Soundgarden
The Meadowlands - The Wrens
Return to Cookie Mountain - TV On The Radio
Boxer - The National
Gentlemen - Afghan Whigs
[self titled] - Tom McRae
Black Sheep Boy - Okkervil River
The Closer You Get - Six By Seven
I reckon you'll like it.
Actually, I should have put 6/10 - I've got cookie mountain somewhere on a computer or something.
Still never heard boxer though!
Superunknown, Siamese Dream, Gentlemen, Meadowlands and The Ideal Crash?
Which one is for special cuddle time though?
And the Smashing Pumpkins are the only band on that list to feature any female members, I think.
Yup, you're a proper MAN.
for any future lists I make?
End of list
that got themselves a job at the Telegraph just so they could troll the music board.
(a) He would've picked Daydream Nation and said something like, "Yes, it's harsh noise. But a man can handle harsh noise."
(b) He'd be more likely to get a job at the Guardian for trolling purposes.
in the article praising Samuel Smith pubs (http://www.telegraph.co.uk/men/thinking-man/10345637/In-praise-of-Samuel-Smith-pubs.html) that it's a good night if you've not argued with a policeman or soiled yourself.
Proper Sam Smith's pubs are great because they aren't full of Londoners revelling in the notion of paying less than £4 for a pint
She's clearly more manly than I.
It would be every Oasis albums, five copies of each Beady Eye album (because Liam Gallagher is more of a man than Noel), any one LP by Ted Nugent and whatever one is the most misogynistic Limp Bizkit album.
He goes and does this.
but i can't understand why any attention is being paid to this.
gotta respect that
no kasabian on the list! outrage
after Pocus Whiteface's Reals
