I'M WITH STUPID, TOO

Scored this for 10p in the Lifeboat Station shop in Exmouth last year:



It's a great read. It combines that breathlessly bitchy/gossipy Smash Hits vibe w/ a 'knowing' de/constructive take on the world of eighties Big Pop.

I think Chris Heath did the recent Robbie Williams book too.

I don't care what anyone says, 'Being Boring' is up there as one of the most poignant songs of the nineties.

I used to love PSB for years. Their version of 'The Streets Have No Name' is one of the few records that made me laugh out loud ('Eat Yerself Fitter' is another one). They were being arch and ironic before anyone else was, and they even made Patsy Kensit sound good. Now everyons's being ironic they don't seem so cutting-edge. I haven't bought anything of their's for years, though the new album had some good reviews.

Yeah, "Being Boring" is lovely.

And "The Streets Have No Name" is a Hi-NRG hoot!
