An aesthetic transformation of man into ubermensch that has left middle England behind completely.

I thought the NME had conceded that white guitar music is utterly awful and were trying to ride the Stormzy SlowThai bandwagon

Untouched by the evolutionary pressures of the dating app market. The optimisation of human flesh

I bet this band has 'searing' lyrics about contemporary Britain.

"This one's for you Boris!
What did you do? Boris!"

The rest of England going around with Dubai tans, plucked eyebrows, biceps like grapefruit

The shameful fact is I went through a phase of dressing like this - polo shirts, skinny/torn jeans.

What saved me, you ask?

1. Weed
2. Enduring 'indie discos'
3. Ecstacy
4. DN FUCKING B

I think this was inevitable for people of a certain age - even at my most resistant to "indie" I still had the mid-00s student guy uniform as did every guy I knew. I'm still continually amazed that skinny jeans stuck around and didn't become a passing trend the same way boho chic or tan chinos did.

Anyway I got saved by:

1. techno and house and disco
2. going sober, staying in depressed and not going to "indie discos"
3. discovering warehouse parties

But I still have residual fondness for some of this era, really. There is a lot to be said for a house party at 5am when someone puts on the Soulwax remix of The Gossip and everyone in attendance is a certain age

So much racial self-loathing in this thread. Luka did you play guitar music in your youth? I can only assume this level of antipathy is personal
