It's the NME-approved, Lex-baiting fusion of grime and indie!

Here's The Rakes and Lethal B delivering what can only be described as a 21st century version of "Radio Song": http://youtube.com/watch?v=Xe6coqAoDC0&search=rakes%2022%20grand

Here we await all the other fantastic songs that this genre will obviously cough up.

Hey Dom, why does Stylus fucking such so much now?

Peter Mark Such (born June 12, 1964 in Helensburgh, Dunbartonshire) is an English cricketer. Such was bought into the Test arena in 1993 as a replacement for John Emburey but despite taking 6 for 67 on debut only played an initial 4 Tests before having to wait 5 years before his next appearance.

Do you think England has any chance of keeping The Ashes? Me, I think they got no chance in Australia.

I don't think that's a bad piece given what she has to work with, ie something not yet justifying the word count it's been given

That article succeeded in winding me up the tube this morning. So many bizarre assertions. Nice to see them spell Wiley's name wrong also.

(A couple of pages before, a caption informs us that the film Short Cuts is based on the stories of John Cheever!)

I knew the only way they could make Lex like his second-favourite style of music (grime) would be by meshing it with his favourite (indie).

edward o (edwardo), Friday, 5 May 2006 09:49 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

okay that lethal-bizzle-and-rakes thing is not as unpleasant as I imagined it being (i'd never heard 22 grand job before), it actually kind of works once you get over the original horror. It's better than Plan B with his guitar doing acoustic grime. :(

rappers talking about nipple-sucking to Bloc Party singing about a girl using her breasts.

wtf.... "using her breasts"????? "nipple-sucking"???

ambrose (ambrose), Friday, 5 May 2006 10:26 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

'using her breasts' is code for, i don't know, titwank.

as for grindie, "fire" has got guitars in it, its probably the best grindie tune

ambrose (ambrose), Friday, 5 May 2006 10:30 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

the idea of bloc party singing about titwanks amuses me.

I always read it as "grin-dee", which makes it sound kinda like a clown.

I havent listened to this but everything I've read about grindie makes me cringe. Just the name for fucks sake...

Lovelace (Lovelace), Monday, 8 May 2006 13:47 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

Is this not just taking the worst bits of both genres and mashing it up, instead of the good bits...?

gekoppel (Gekoppel), Monday, 8 May 2006 23:31 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

Yeah, all the great bits of grime and haircut indie are being ignored in this.

Dom Passantino (Dom Passantino), Monday, 8 May 2006 23:33 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

Sarcastic! No I mean there are really good bits, but especially the kinds of indie bands Statik has got really don't fit at all... it just ends up tending towards the yob end of the spectrum in both genres... (shoutyness- the eastlondoness of it all...) rather than intriguing poly rhythms or whatever finesse actually hooked some people into grime in the first place...

gekoppel (Gekoppel), Monday, 8 May 2006 23:41 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

Yeah, but the whole idea is to give grime artists who's sale figures won't stretch to them being able to buy a new juicer (ie, all of them) a chance to piggyback some indie bands of various successes to higher sales figure, it was never going to be the most thoughtful and in-depth and revolutionary of genres. I mean, it's gonna be yobbish and populist and REAL MEN DRINKING BEER AND SHAGGING BIRDS and Lethal B and the Rakes just going "Garlic bread? Garlic? Bread?" at each other for four hours.

Surely the grime/indie crossover should have been called "Brrrap Your Hands Say Yeah".

Was listening to "The Avenue" earlier on, Roll Deep should have done a guest verse at the end of The Fray's "How to Save A Life", that'd be a single of the year contender then
