Dorian Lynskey takes aim at Goldie Lookin’ Chain: I generally think that GLC are harmless shite, Lynskey identifies a more sinister agenda among their fans, of mocking hip-hop via laughing at people who do it badly. This is a bit over the top – yes I’m sure most of the people buying GLC are not regular hip-hop buyers, but my guess is that they’re used to its being around, they don’t dislike it, they’ll have a dance to “Jump Around” or whatever if the opportunity arises. In that sense the band are like The Darkness, who appeal to people fond of the idea of rock but a bit bored by the reality.

GLC get one star, but one record comes off worse in the Guardian this week and nets a rare no-star write up. That album being? Big and Rich.
