I saw this band probably around the same time on the Stephen Colbert show and had the same reaction as Limmy, I couldn't work out whether it was a joke or not. Baffling. I put it down to some incomprehensible American thing. I'm assuming there not successful in the UK?
I suppose it's not just the artists it's the earnestness of the fans as well, like when you see footage of the crowd in these big festivals nowadays and the camera homes in on someone singing along like they're having some sort of religious experience. Totally baffling.
was talking about this with someone recently and theres so many of these people who get famous for this kind of notorious line blurring method acting, unrelated to whatever 'content' it is that they produce, that it feels like thats the only way to be famous now. Actors, musicians, politicians- they feel like a different class now.
Limmy’s seen Burt Reynolds in Deliverance to know the score. Impervious to cringe? Put another way, a ufo clip abroad filmed on a mobile, cut to a nipper switching from his home language to English because he‘d clocked he was being filmed. Subject/object. Inside/out? Schizophrenic flesh? See it with people and their kids, filming them constantly, it’s becoming ingrained slowly. Madness under a still new but increasingly skewed gaze
Now is always your moment to shine
Did you hear Simon Cowell‘s bloated, sweaty, fuck up of a face was masturbating furiously over your passion?
You are everything
You are special
The madness of a developing novelty is a madness nonetheless
