the brit awards were last night (kinda like british grammys). cat power lost to nelly furtado in the international female category. bob dylan lost to justin timberlake in the international male category. I hate the scissor sisters more every time I am forced to hear their cloying pop hits. I can’t tell snow patrol from take that, which means no matter how hard I’ve tried I will never be british. I know both acts have had ubiquitous (and hugely mediocre) hits in this country. I can tell lily allen from amy winehouse, but I am still not convinced that either is gonna change the world (lily’s dad is really good in bbc’s robin hood, I have to say). in 2007 music seems like a very, very sad and bland time for music indeed. I was in topshop yesterday when “how soon is now?” came on and that was surely the best song I’ve ever heard in there. does anything from now even come close? I ask you? anyone?
