Because everyone who works in telly is still a tosspot.
wearing denim on denim, with the denim jacket buttoned up.
and mimed "Place Your Hands". Their one bloody song that anyone knows
never realised how public school he was
I couldn’t agree more. Institutional bullying. The problem was, I was used to it. That’s what an all-boys public school does to you.
you're Will from TFI Friday? I am slightly, but not very, surprised.
they go for the 40-something nostalgic viewers.
the 40 crowd obvs
no young folk will give a shit
same as all the indie reunion gigs ooooooooh
tmi TFI tbh tbf
Can't imagine it'll be as successful as before. Whatever you thought about it all it did capture some sort of zeitgeist of that whole 90s Britpop/Cool Britannia thing. Now it's what? A ruder version of the One Show?
I might watch it.
Are Shed 7 on?
but oh fuck http://www.nme.com/news/liam-gallagher/86004
nailed it tbf
if she was a burger aye
There's that fucking dreadful live album out too. What the hell.
with a very few exceptions that might as well be called 'The Worst of Britpop'. Jeez.
'Jumping Jack Flash - Shed Seven'
that track listing is like a heavenly view of what Britpop could have been if it was all just proper bands and non of this London middle class nonsense.
best band in the world
to be talking about this.
I know it's going to suck, but I'm tuning in.
Makes me remember fighting over the remote with my little brother who wanted to watch Thunderbirds instead.
Was that not the R1 breakfast show?
Is Shaun Ryder going to be on it?
after reality tv paid to have his teeth fixed.
I imagine Louise from Sleeper could use the work though.
I know it was Britpop heavy but I remember Slipknot's performance being one of the most exciting things I've ever watched on TV. Must have been 13/14, everyone at school and scouts was buzzing about it. Pretty sure I taped it and watched it over and over again. Not even a big metal fan, just thought it was amazing.
Yes, I went to Scouts, I'm fine with that. Best years of my life.
Was never a big fan but that performance was so exciting and made Chris Evans look spectacularly old.
Evans left half way through so the rest of the episodes had a different guest host each week, including Donna Air who called At The Drive In "Rolodex Propaganda" and yes this is an excuse for me to post the video of 15 year-old me headbanging once more
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Terry_and_Gaby_Show which I watched a lot instead of going to college. BRING BACK THE TERRY AND GABY SHOW.
were they wever on it? idk. ey remember when Wiiiiilll did that Universally Challenged thing one half term? wasn't that at Reading Uni? idk? I can't remember.
"TFI revival is a nod to 90s nostalgia."
Can anyone top that in the stating the blindingly obvious stakes? I normally can't stand the people in the comments who say, "I can't believe someone got paid to write this" but...sweet fucking christ.
Nowadays because body shaming is out of order
is an utter cunt.
probably one of the worst people I've met.
but I was nervous and messed it up so they didn't give me the job... and THESE WEIRD POINTLESS ONE-OFFS IS WHAT YOU GET INSTEAD OF A ROSCOE AND MARLON SERIAL DRAMA
Red Wedding every episode
first i heard about it was yesterday, that's some guerrilla promotion
by roping a bunch of black women singers along to beef up the lacklustre vocals and simultaneously add a bit o' the ol' soul. (To smooth off a layer of britpop shame?)
At least Primal Scream had the decency to get that schtick out of their system dead early on in their career.
The one from 16 years ago?
from the album they squeezed out at the scrag end of their career as a functioning band. tonight fits the template set back as far as then. theory holds up.
(don't get me wrong, i've always had love for the blurs, but they're solidly sat in the heritage band category.)
but I'm struggling to see it.
Or, to put it another, appropriately 90s way: Sick Boy's Unifying Theory of Life.
First you have it, then you lose it and it's gone forever. All walks of life.
"Beautifully fucking illustrated."
but surely you could have got this off your chest in Alt.Blur back in the day rather than saving it up for now?
Shoulda just got them Vamps on instead of Weller and Tom Jones.
(I'm enjoying the wander down memory lane, for fwiw, in case anyone is picturing me as grouching to the max over it all.)
Top of the Pops
Hitman and Her
+ Crystal Maze
+ The White Room
crystal maze is making a comeback too
(nb: link is un-buzzfeedy and actually quite interesting)
I've tried to make a gif out of it, can someone do it better please? http://imgur.com/eHu5nsC
Narrative/talking heads: Alex James, Jarvis, Keith Allen, Princess Di, YBAs...
Soundtrack: Elastica, Charlatans, Chemical Brothers, David Holmes, DJ Shadow...
The chronology is all over the shop, too.
No mention of Björk, Prodigy or Radiohead either.
[MsWza: "Or alcopops!"]
the did spend 10 minutes talking about Tango adverts.
Couldn't even take any joy from Toby Jones getting snubbed because it was by prize cunts Alex James and Keith Allen
wouldn't want any more TFI comebacks though. I had been drinking also.
'Did you catch any of TFI?'
'Aye i did, really quite enjoyed it, but worked as a one off, and i was pretty half cut'
and in spite of being deeply cynical about the whole thing, I couldn't help but succumb to wave after wave of intense nostalgia about the whole thing.
Chris Evans is a berk, of course, but he doesn't half have a gift for warm, populist broadcasting. Just reminded me of how much fun it all was first time round.
The 90's eh.
all of them
and then we had 45 minutes of Lewis Hamilton who must be one of the blandest rich twats I have ever had the displeasure of listening to. What the fuck was that?
but he at least showed himself to have a nice line of dry wit (previously, I'd thought he was just a vacant shill with the charisma of a walnut).
I liked his bants about asking Chris Evans if he was looking to buy the global television rights of F1.
(other than a sweaty little man removing a helmet or shaking some champers). I fucking hated him. He looks about 12 as well, the tax dodging twat.
And the bands.
A robotic, insincere weirdo. His relationship with Shirtslinger was the cringiest thing I've ever seen. Two people with not a shred of real feeling between them.
yeah why the hell did they have him on for so long?
I have j=admiration for Hamilton's talents, but as a person, I can't bear him and I will not forgive him for what he did to Nicole.
(not being entirely serious, but maybe a wee bit)
but then I was probably bang on their target audience.
back for another 8 shows
So anarchic and you genuinely do not know what will happen next.
Just 9 hours of Chris Evans watching F1 in his pants while Ocean Colour Scene feed him grapes!
