Hard-Fi = Dumbasses

Posted by Rall at 14:32 on September 12, 2007

Now I know it’s been around a little while in the ‘music press’ but now I’ve actually seen it in a shop, Hard-Fi’s new ‘non’ artwork is even more retarded than it sounds.

They appear to have decided that artwork = pictures, and have claimed to be not interested in that arty stuff, (or ‘We don’t need some airbrushed band shot just because it might be expected. Fuck that. This is about the music.‘ to be precise), so now their… well their cover art just says ‘NO COVER ART’.

I almost hope that it’s them being ironic, but I don’t think Hard-Fi have a collection of brain cells expansive enough to waste on irony.

Surely if they did have half a brain and really wanted to ‘break the rules‘ they should have avoided it all together and not had a cover at all (I’d like to note here that if you [mistakenly, who’d buy it voluntarily?] buy the album from HMV, you can get limited edition slip cover!), in fact why not go the whole hog and just cell the CD without a case at all. At least that way I’d have no wasteful packing from my new set of mug coasters.

Idiots.

Mercury Prize 2007 – And the winner is…

Posted by Bob at 22:24 on September 4, 2007

The Klaxons – WHY?! Better than the tripe that won it last year? Not much… They decided to wreck the podium when collecting their award, you think they’d know how a microphone works…i.e. don’t put it right in your mouth!!

The Klaxons - Myths Of The Near Future

I was hoping for Bat For Lashes, which is one of my favourite albums of 2007. Saying that, I’m always weary of the bands I like winning the prize due to ‘the curse‘ and all… so lets hope The Klaxons aren’t affected by it…
