The English/British Music Scene. by Kid Loco on 2000-05-31 02:21:55

This is another personal thing, prompted by the WormNERD of today, but I was wondering what impression everyone not in England has of the major music scene herein. And, another thing. Buena Vista Social Club? If you haven't heard it, do.

  The most I know about the music scene in England is from Q magazine's 1999 round up, and for all I know that's like getting tips about pop culture from Rolling Stone. Is dick-hop as popular over there as here? (Eminem, Kid Rock - hmmm, is there a connection between these jerk's over-the-top pseudo-masculinity and misogynism, and their surprisingly candy-like names?)

  What was on the Q magazine sum up? If it was stuff like Blur, Stereophonics, Scritty Politti, Macy Gray, Air (Who are French) then it's the one I'm thinking of, which was maybe a fair sum up of popular culture, and critically acclaimed stuff, but there are many un-earthed gems (as always - I suppose) And Eminem and kid Rock seem to be popular with kids who don't know better, and the kind of people to whom Puff Daddy is a god, so not really. Eminem IS no.2 however, in the album chart.

  Yah, that's it - those folks, Texas, Supergrass, Blur http://www.cddb.com/xm/cd/misc/461702a46e1517b52c2e9984cdd12800.html Hey, is NME worth reading these days?
NME by Kid Loco on 2000-06-02 01:57:43  |  Reply to this
  I'm not too sure. It was up to last summer, but then I stopped. I only read Melody Maker now, as it is smaller and magazine-like. NME is large, and inky, which is nice, but I read in a confined area (the bus) so I don't buy. It depends. Obviously there will be bands/artists who you don't know, so it'll take a while to get into, but I think they're both well worth a look in.

  MUSE, I went to see on Saturday, and they have re-instilled my respect for English music. Oh, and sorry if my tag doesn't work, I'm only learning.

  I had no idea we had a fabulous famous French DJ trolling here!

  No, no, I merely use his name to promote his work! If people see it, having heard the name, they're more likely to pay attention, and this is a good thing. See?
