PILOT – January
You think I’m going to do twelve months of this crap, you’ve got another thing coming.
All that said though, January by Pilot is a godawful piece of shit which does deserve a singular bashing. I think many of us cou[…]

THE COMMODORES – Easy (Like Sunday Morning)
What are the Commodores talking about in this record? Certainly in the mid-eighties when the track got hijacked (much like hijacking a hot-air balloon) by the Halifax Building Society the consensus wa[…]

MOTT THE HOOPLE – “Saturday Gigs”
“Saturday Gigs” was Mott The Hoople’s farewell single. Farewell records occupy a special place in my heart, because….well, you can probably guess why, actually. On this track[…]

THE ROLLING STONES – “Ruby Tuesday”

THE BANGLES – Manic Monday
Now this one also goes out to Prince who had the temerity to write this shocker. I’m not saying the all girl group are completely blameless, they threw themselves so wholeheartedly into the pretense of being off[…]

ACRONYM TROUBLE

ACRONYM TROUBLE
I Hate Music is no stranger to dodgy acronyms. The lousiness of DMX’s soubriquet has already been given short shrift. All that said – yet another rapper has wandered into the insult padock, with not one but two acronym rel[…]

GRADE A
I am not going to make a habit of linking to other weblogs. However, this act of heroic civil disobedience deserves all the hits it can get. Jerwin Maximo, I salute you.
