I know Bluesfest has expanded over the years
to be much more inclusive of other musical styles,
so I have struggled with my lack of enthusiasm for one musical form, wondered if I was just old and crotchety.
Well maybe I am but I can't contemplate a Bluesfest with any Seoul singers as part ,
it would probably be enough to sell my ticket.


Heading out for the East Coast / Lord knows I've paid some dues gettin' through, / Tangled up in blues.

When you're lost in the rain in Juarez
And it's Eastertime too
And your gravity fails
And negativity don't pull you through
Don't put on any airs
When you're down on Rue Morgue Avenue
They got some hungry women there
And they really make a mess outta you.

I agree no more English acts either - post 1990 they all sound the exact same. All look the same and all write terrible terrible songs. Its the worst breeding ground for music outside of NZ.

As Clive said on the Bo Duddley skit: "Erm, I think it can be truly said that the Americans have, er, their soul singers, and we English have ars-oul singers."

Radiohead formed in '85. No one will remember who Adele was in 18 months. She's the modern day Vanessa Carlton (who?) or that Korean guy above.

Yep.. Psy and his silly song and dance should be a distant memory by next year...

The Nutbush and The Macarena anyone?

Radiohead did form in 1985 but the first single didn't get released till 1992 which is when the wider world will have become aware of them. Adele, like her or not, is a great talent with a good voice. In your earlier sweeping generalisation you also lumped in acts like Oasis, Blur, Robbie Williams, Kate Rusby, Eliza Carthy, Goldie, Roni Size as being unworthy of your approval. I'm glad that this forum has the benefit of your musical expertise otherwise the rest of us wouldn't know good music from bad.

Cheers - Oasis / let's face it every single song sounds the exact same / they may have had 2 good rock albums - two complete and utter tossers, Blur an oasis cover act led by some guy that believes he is uber talented, Robbie Williams first hit was a cover of a wham song before that he was in boyzone, no idea about the rest of them Goldie and Ronnie Size? I remeber Goldie was in coronation street, him and Roni Size are both basically computer program's that would be amazing "live" : plug iMac into speaker press play, smoke a fag. Both known to sell their shows collect the money and then they cancel. As for the 2 ladies at the risk of sounding sexist I don't really listen to female artists apart from the more asexual types like sinead and goldies ex that nutter from Iceland etc, women tend to sing about being in love with men and going to the club etc, I try to avoid that stuff, I like the original English acts that challenged listeners like the Kinks 10cc and the Beegees. Since then all these bands out of England look like mighty boosh extras trying to sound like a cross between blur and oasis.

An Oasis cover act? Anyone who has heard more than 1 song of both bands will see that Oasis and Blur are miles apart in terms of style. Oasis may not vary their style much, but Blur are quite the opposite. The lead singer of Blur is uber talented - perhaps you are not familiar with the breadth of Blur's work, or the music of Gorillaz , or the project 'The Good The Bad and the Queen', the work with Mali musos, or the 'Monkey' opera. All of which are showcases of real talent across a variety of musical fields.

Sorry to quibble, just my 2 cents. Each to their own, but an Oasis cover act? No idea where you are getting that...
