Science vs Tanya Round 74

FT + I Hate Music2 comments • 849 views

Regular readers of I Hate Music will know that I have little truck with science, unless I’m using it to blind Thomas Dolby. Science has consistently let me down: I have lobbied long and hard to prove the harmful effects of listening to music but the so-called ‘scientific establishment’ continue to ignore my pioneering work, claiming that my proposals are somehow “unworkable”. This is nonsense: the experiment which would have proved that beheading Lemar is more enjoyable than listening to him, for instance, is absolutely watertight.

Sunny Sidmouth, Regency gemLast weekend, I had the pleasure of a quick trip home to see my folks, and took the opportunity to pop down to Sidmouth promenade, where, I was assured by local friends, a bleddy great big ship had run aground. Had it? It had!

ROD STEWART – “Maggie May”

FT + Popular28 comments • 6,038 views

#305, 9th October 1971

“Maggie May” doesn’t have a chorus. That isn’t necessarily the first thing you notice about it – you’re more likely to pick up on a ringing phrase, or a particular blaze or choke in Rod’s voice, or on the thumped double-beats that kick-start each verse. But nonetheless, there it is – or isn’t – an absence of chorus.

Repo shoes

FT9 comments • 2,557 views

What’s that glow emanating from the box? A pair of Clarks Magic Steps, of course. Slight lack of Timotei waterfall in this particular ad but you get the idea. I love how the only way the wicked witch can get her grubby paws on the magic key is to take on a part-time job in a shoe shop. Also note LACK of trash-compacting foot measuring device.

sweet sweetbread’s badassssss doll

gusgutzHave intended to research and post this since GIBBONS’ TOY STORE burnt down, now several years ago — in the window at the end of this very extremely weird only-in-a-bad-dream wedge-shaped shop, which in many ways resembled a half-open portal into the HELLRAISER dimension, sat two gus gutz dolls, one black one white — “Plush Internal Organs Toy: Gus spits up his innards for inspection, then they tuck away back into his pocket mouth.”

I have never seen them “on sale” anywhere else, let alone in someone’s home.

What Album Covers Are Really Trying To Tell Us: 3: Jamie T – Panic Prevention

FT + I Hate Music17 comments • 9,752 views

After this stinging criticism regarding the secret message on Bad from Steve Mannion, I have decided to look closer at an album that is not even out yet. This way I can discover the secret message, and spread it to you BEFORE YOU ACTUALLY BUY IT. And so Jamie T, all new darling of the London music scene J’Accuse…
