scroll down to "Performers with a straight edge ethos who don't play hardcore punk"
Nothing to do with me but highly humorous...
apart from the drinking. And the smoking.
I don't know how to do that kind of thing but it's made me LOL.
but I can do you a Wikipedia page if you like
wasn't me guv!
I'm quite flattered cos all the would-be emo kids who my little brother knows call themselves "straight edge". I'm not vegetarian either. Is orchestral jazz straight edge?
and immediately thought, my moneys on restllessboy, then i read later on in the thread that he is the only one who denys it....seems like he thought he was the most likely suspect too.
though why I would have thought of calling bobby straight edge I have no idea.
also how did bobby find it? googling for his own name no doubt.
the vain whore.
We are also listed on last fm under "straightedge bands"! Fantastic! I'm going to use this to turn emos onto loungecore and modern jazz!
Yep it's far too old now...
just felt like saying it.
I'm enjoying the word 'cunt' today. see my profile.
The damage is done.

one of the straight lines on your sharp suits.....perhaps brainlove or wishpig, or maybe they're in cahoots (sorry I've always wanted to use that word)
i love when people mess with wikipedia good-humouredly in a way that might actually be allowed to get past editing and doesn't, like, fuck up anyone's doctoral thesis or anything.
though anyone who relies on wikipedia for such a thesis is damn silly really.
