Hi and welcome to my site, this site was set up after I realised
How deep a hate I`d acquired from listening to, well, dodgy pop music.
Mentioning no names, apart from STEPS, THE BEAUTIFUL SOUTH, BOYZONE etc...
these so called type of `bands` should be stamped out immediately. They
irritate thousands everyday by playing their manufactured, badly written music
with no meaning lyrics, type of music.
Then they come along and ruin good old songs, e.g. Under the Bridge, and
for some strange reason people buy it time and time again!
Or is it so strange? No, I donít believe it is. All of these groups
are force fed onto the consumer, through
1. Continuous airplay on crappy radio stations.
2. Massive advertising.
3. MOST importantly of all, the fixing of the music charts.
If you go to a music wholesaler to buy music for your store, youíll find
that there is a very limited amount of music available to you. And as
there are only a few wholesalers, you have little choice but to buy pop shite.
Now Iím not saying ALL music with shallow lyrics is crap, but the bands mentioned
above, write shite lyrics AND music. One of my favourite bands (Jamiroquai) donít have the
best lyrics in the world, but they are so amazing musically accomplished and soooo
funky! Just enjoy music, proper music, its one of the best things in life!
Anyway, thatís the philosophy of the site over and done with, now a bit about me :
My nameís James White, born where I still am in West London, England.
Iím 18 and have just finished studying A-levels at a college in Hammersmith,
The CDs I listened too while making the site were:
Jamiroquai - Emergency on Planet Earth, Return of the Space Cowboy,
and Travelling without moving.
Radiohead - The Bends and Australian Tour EP.
Third Eye Blind - TEB.
Skunk Anansie - Post Orgasmic Chill.
Sting - Brand New Day.
Plus a heap of MP3s Iíve got.
Anyway, enjoy the site, and if thereís anything you hate, or wrong, then tough.
Nooooo, only joking, just E-mail me, I love criticism, so do it now!
