"Screw good taste" - Alfred Jarry
Yeah. Whoever that girl was hosting the show was horribly vapid. Of Meatloaf's 'Bat Out Of Hell': "It is a guilty musical pleasure, which I think we can all listen to without shame." Gah! But Judith Lucy was surprisingly good on Radiohead: "I just want the Gallagher brothers to beat them up."
Stoners. All the voters were stoners. It was embarrassing.
It was pretty stupid, but I did think Dicko managed to cut through the bullshit. His defense of Radiohead and Pink Floyd against the usual charges of pretentiousness warmed my heart, at least. Then again, he is partially responsible for Shannon Noll, which tends to re-chill my heart.A better title for the show would have been "Favourite Albums of 35 Year-Olds Who Own Less Than Twenty CDs and Whose Taste Hasn't Evolved Since They Were 15".
