I saw this earlier today. This comment particularly pissed me off

Twitter is full of hatred towards everything, Im surprised that isnt trending topic, social media is a great tool to divide and conquer. Thats why is free.

Greetings,

Eh, I've seen worse. But then, the boys can be a bit "catty" at times themselves (especially when they spend time in the company of people who are that way inclined)... so I'm not sure how this is radically different.

Retro. :)

I like the Morrissey anecdote - is that true?

Wow, people who like PSB don't like music??
It's hard not to take the bait.

I mean there's so much substance in PSB's music. So many layers, indirect irony and hidden subtext. References to other songs, other genres. The perfect inflections in Neil's deliveries, matching the meaning of the words. His expansive lexicon and clever rhymes. Chris' hooks and solos.
There's such a high level of perfection and deliberateness with PSB. I can't fathom the negative tweets.

Anyone got a link to the Morrissey/Bennett "Chip Shop Girls" stand-off story?

I've seen artists being hated a lot more. Hatred against PSB is a lot less common than say... Coldplay.

I have a friend who hates PSB because they don't just do bubblegum pop like Erasure and Take That... Which disproves the comments above, more layers than an onion. Mind you, she liked pretty much every UK novelty No.1 from the 70's and 80's so that should set it in context.

Can you really bracket Erasure and Take That together? Computer says No.

Yes. Music for people with no taste, much like the Joe Dolce, Smurfs, Clive Dunn, St Winifred's School Choir, Brian and Michael, et al records she also liked...$h@t

Mark who???
Just for the sake of it, make sure you're always frowning. :|
It shows the world that you've got substance and depth.
