The New Pornographers: new music!


They’re too young to actually remember Sigue Sigue Spuntnik of course, who were fucking awful.

You’re perfectly entitled to your opinion on aesthetics, but how are people in their 40’s too young to remember Sigue Sigue Sputnik?

If you look closely, they’re all in their early 30s. Maybe one of them might have been 3 when Degville and his band of painted arseholes were doing their stuff, but you’re right, perhaps it doesn’t matter. I suppose I’m just a bit annoyed at people dredging up crap music that I hoped had been forgotten. I hoped that about Abba too once, but it seems some people still think they were worthwhile. I dunno - I blame the parents.

Well Neko Case is 43, and if a couple of the guys pictured aren’t at least that old I’d be shocked.
