Manic Street Preachers "Peeled Apples" = Ashlee Simpson "La La"
Fucking dreadful record
No they weren't. Tedious MOR muso shite. Just like War on Drugs, funnily enough.
Not a bad thing, but imagine getting excited over Tom Petty. Ditto anyone described as Springsteen-esque.
I think he's just so all-American he's much easier to get into if you're from there.
Same with the Boss.
Are the manics supposed to be hip in this example, no band are less hip.
Actual answer ariel pink
TIMTTMY/Postcards../Send Away The Tigers = unhip
Everything else = extremely debatable
the holy bible stands up i'll give you that, everything else, if the two options are hip or embarrassing would definitely be in the embarrassing category. On balance as a band the could not be described as hip.
Ariel Pink is a good example. Or his mate R Stevie Moore. Both embrace 70s/80s MOR in a possibly ironic way (difficult to tell.)
Just fucking awful.
Think they're New Order, sound like Howard Jones
