The Bleeding Obvious

Following a bout of ill health, the long suffering Morrissey left a recent concert just two songs in after being bottled by a crowd member. One fan provided this insightful observation:

"If there's ever a singer who would not take kindly to a bottle being thrown at him, it's Morrissey."

NME blames The Strokes for indie culture

In a new blog on the NME website, Ben Patashnik gives his opinion on apparent sacred cow, "Is This It" by The Strokes. Lol at this:

"it’s The Strokes’ fault that indie discos, for practically the entire decade, have been full of unimaginative Topshop-humping geeks in skinny jeans, shirts and skinny ties. They allowed a generation of sheep to ‘go indie’ and unwittingly doomed guitar music into being a going concern for department store buyers rather than, y’know, something to believe in."

Patashnik may be oblivious to the irony of his article, but the abnormally insightful NME readers are brutally aware.

Jelly writes:
"The NME can't have their cake and eat it too. Pretty [sure] they were responsible for about 95% of the hype surrounding the Strokes, documenting their every move and hyperbolizing it? If you want someone to blame, Ben Patashnik, turn around and look at whoever is giving you a paycheck. The Strokes didn't ask for the hype, and I'm pretty sure they didn't want it, so stop punishing them."
