Well, it's true. Granted there are a few exceptions but at this point we notice the godless Marketeers creeping in on the market. Pop would soon fall, followed eventually by the other genres.

I wish Music was as simple as it was back then, but instead we have so many useless types of music types (Emu Fuck Fire Goth rock?) and these corporate whore bands who, quote a popular dead comedian of the early nineties 'suck Satans cock'.

Emu fuck fire goth rock?   laff

Who are quoting Bill Hicks? Corporate whores shouldn't use quotes that are strongly anti-themselves.

The mainstream scene has always been shitass horrible, but the less known scenes were pretty good throughout most of the 90s.
And of course, Jeff Buckley released his album in '94 (followed by a bunch of really magnificent posthumous demo/live releases).
What kind of music do you actually like?

On-topic: Are "The Britz" the same as "The Brit Awards"?

Nah, the guy isn't Bill Hicks. He didn't suck for one.

Also, Juliet thinks that using Z is trendy. It's not.

Actually, Bill Hicks was the one who did the "Suck Satan's cock!" bits... About MC Hammer and Vanilla Ice among others. What makes it so horrible is that, apparently, evil mass-marketed bands adopt a thing that is really an aggressive insult towards themselves as artists. Just like when MTV aired Daria, a show that was insulting much of the MTV base of viewers.

Matt Lucas actually looks quite a lot like Gary Barlow in that picture  laff

Four of my favourite bands won, yay!   big grin There's a few winners I disagree with though. I would have liked to have seen Jamelia win an award.

I can't wait to watch it on TV tonight, I heard the Scissor Sisters' performance was excellent.

Speaking of which, I belived Simon Pegg (   love ) presented an award to them:


Quite disappointed with Alex Kapranos' new haircut though...  frown

Tweek: The awards took place yesterday. It's only being shown on TV today though.

I'm glad that Keane got those 2 awards. They deserved them IMO.

The whole ceremony was not as good as I thought it would be. The best performance was Scissor Sisters' Take Your Mama, with the Jim Henson puppets in the background (singing watermelons!)  big grin

Other stuff:
- When best rock act was announced, the look on Alex Kapranos's face was priceless...
- Again, Kapranos's reaction to when Keane (yay!) won best album; he was just stood there in disbelief...
- Jake Shears screaming "OH MY GOOOOOD!" for about a minute...
- The fact that the audience was practically dead because they were waiting for the bland and awful Snoop Dogg and Pherell...
- The Bedingfield's duet was just weird.
- I did like Lemar and Jamelia's performance of Addicted to Love though  smile

I'd don't think I'd seen Chris Evans on TV since TFI Friday back in the 90s...

Gutted Joy Division didn't win the Brit 25 song award.  But what were they gonna do?  Dig up Ian Curtis so they could perform it?

I watched The Brits last night.   love Scissor Sisters and  Franz Ferdinand were the hottest band ever! Even Robbie was hot   love

I like Scissor Sister’s performance at the start especially with the sinning watermelons. That was cool. I also like Franz Ferdinand’s performance too.

I love the look on Robbie’s face when he thought that when Chris Evans announced the real Gary Barlow and Howard Donald from Take That are going to present an award. Then Robbie has a relief look on his face when it was Really Matt Lucas and David Williams as Gary and Howard. Robbie’s speech was Brilliant  “I was always the talented member of the band. What ever I did whatever I said, I didn’t mean it, I just want you back for good. This is my 15th BRIT award. Thanks to the media for their wonderful support and my boyfriend Jake from the Scissor Sisters”   laff

Bad Stuff: why does Joss Stone have to duet with Robbie singing Angels. She has spoiled the song and she can’t sing. The Bedingfield's performed was shit, I think all the Mcfly boys should get a haircut especially the one with a mullet, Oh my god! And when did The Streets won for Best British Male? Are they meant to be a group?

Robbie Williams started singing it at the end of his performance...Plus, there must be some other "classic" songs from the past 25 years that could have been nominated. I'd seen the whole shortlist beforehand (it was 25 songs from 1977-2004), and I can't see the "brilliant" appeal of half of of them.

Joss Stone can't sing?! She's a hell of a lot better than me, and I'm only two months younger than her.

The Streets is just the moniker Mike Skinner uses. I think there are other people he often has up on stage with him, as there was on the show.

Excuse me but Angels happens to be Robbie’s huge hit and it also made him become a huge star. So don’t call people stupid just because they bought his single.

I'm starting to wonder if Dance music is just being passed off as a 90's thing, and now the media are trying to pretend it no longer exists. Of course there will always be crappy Ibiza dance and flavor of the month dance, but I'm talking about established dance acts here, the kind that win awards at events like this, or used to anyway...

The media seems to be slagging off nearly anything new by a successful act from the 90's, and in particular Dance acts. Prodigy's album from last year received just 2 Stars from Q Magazine, the very same magazine which awarded their previous album (released in the 90's) a full 5 Stars! This wasn't a one off either, as Q Magazine have just recently given 2 Stars to the new Chemical Brothers album, and yet the very same Magazine at the end of the 90's gave their album the album of the year award! And yet both these albums still made number 1 in England. It's not that they're bad at all, it's that the critics are rubbishing them because of their own flavor of the month antics! Magazines like Q and NME love to do this, and then they overhype all the new stuff like The Streets and Keane. Of course if The Streets make it through to the next decade then it'll be slagged off in favor of what's new then. Quite pathetic really.

Just because the critics are badmouthing though, doesn't mean to say that the public agree. Prodigy made number 1 here in England in the albums charts for 2 weeks last year, and The Chemical Brothers new album made number 1 just the other week! So dance music from 90's acts is still popular now, but the critics are being such asses that they won't give it a chance, they'll just slag it off, and then not even have a category for best dance act at the Brits. It's not as these dance acts are receiving low nominations either, it's that they’re not even getting a chance now because the category has just gone completely!...

I wasn't surprised that Robbie got the award after all most of the peops that vote are going to be of the generation that grew up with it. Personally I wouldn't have voted for it either but there you go.

Radio 2 Listeners (The Ken Bruce show to be precise, yes I listen to it, so what...*runs off and cries in a corner*) voted for the best song of the last 25 years. So I think all the people that voted for Robbie were Mums and Housewives.

Nothing against Robbie, but I think that Joy Division was a much better song. I loved the Boomtown Rats at the end, that's all I watched of the brits.

Good point. And don't worry I listen to R2 too.      wink

I listen to his greatest hits album a lot and "Angels" is a very good song but I still don't think it's the best song of the last 25 years. I didn't watch much of it either just the acts I wanted to see winning picking up their awards.
