We all have them I’m sure, the band where you think, “No, not interested, I have heard everything that inspires them and they are adding nothing, they’re crap and I JUDGE anyone who likes them.”
For me it was The Libertines. Blatantly chancers, hugely over-rated, obviously crap but with decent music taste, I made the choice to just not explore when they appeared, and this was largely due to Pete Doherty. An obvious wazzock. And shagging Kate bloody Moss.
Well, God almighty look at this pic. I hope it posts ok. But these young whipper snappers actually now look older than me. Now I admit I am a guy who always looked old, I went bald in my teens and now, in my mid forties my age is catching up with my appearance. But Lordy, this pic is giving me a midlife crisis; the bands I held in contempt for being young look older than me. Come mother death, take me now.
Is this a normal thing? Had anyone seen their generational divide band just leap over their own age? Is it like policemen looking younger? Younger bands look old?
