Friday, June 23, 2006Art Brut, Top Of The Pops
Art Brut are big in Germany and getting big in America. They aren't so big in Britain because they sound too British for the Brits to take it seriously. To the point...They have a song that goes "Art Brut! Top of the pops! Art Brut! Top of the pops" and as we learnt this week, Top of the Pops is being axed this summer after 42 years on air. It only seems appropriate that Art Brut should get to sing their song on it before the programme goes and renders every top of the pops reference in modern music an antique. There's a petition with over 1000 signatures - please sign and spread the word!
Dear The BBC...
I will be blogging properly again soon, once I've met a deadline for my dissertation in a week! And I don't have a summer cold anymore. Blergh.
