What the Dickens is going on here?
"The most stereotypically self-indulgent Guardian wank I can think of, bordering on self parody. Smug, London obsessed nonsense. It’s got nothing to do with anything! There’s people like, dying and stuff. And where are the Arctic Monkeys, anyway…?"
I like a bit o' nonsense like this.
But this one isn't a good taxonomy. Unless someone can explain to me why the fuck each band is in each line
same goes for infographics in general. when they're good, they're very good. but more often than not they're stinky shit that's been cobbled together without any thought and which represents nought.
And think: why have these bands been arbitrarily placed on this tram map? Is there any link between the bands on the line? Why are New Order, Electronic and Joy Division on different lines? Fuck is going on?!
well The Fall were formed in Prestwich which is that stop on the map, so maybe the locations are relevant.. or.. some intern knocked this together.. or something
and the different lines made no sense whatsoever. Think Pretty Girls Make Graves let to the White Stripes or something
scrap the license fee or at least refund the bit that paid for someone to take a tram map and replace the station names with arbitrarily ordered band names.
