Hate Band Aid 20?
Thursday, November 18, 2004
We do! This farrago of nonsensical styles sloshed together like a bucket of swill is a travesty of the original.
For all its flaws, "Do They Know It's Christmas" was a simple, sledgehammer of a record. Solid and cohesive, a hell of an opening and a rousing chant. Inspired, of the moment and a punch in the face.
But the new single is more like a wet fish sliding over your cheeks. From the initial Dido-pace (and lack of consonants), through the Darkness' twiddly-diddly-look-at-mee-dly, the John-Barnes-rapping of Dizzee Rascal and the final self-congratulatory applause and maracas of a school assembly.
However that doesn't mean we can't support the very deserving charity! Click anywhere on this text and donate £5 (that's £1.01 more than the cost of the single) and salve your conscience without actually having to go out and support this travesty. Then post a reply here confirming your donation and adding some hilariously witty comment.
Let's Feed The World. But not their egos.
Do you hate Band Aid 20's new single? So do we! But that doesn't mean we can't give generously.
