Keane are not fans of “mindless, temporary pop”
Story filed by Mikey on May 14, 2012
Fun police Keane have spouted some further thoughts about popular music.
Rebuking the notion of entertainment and “mindless, temporary pop”, LOLigarch Tom mused: “It’s more about the entertainment side of things and less about the music and authenticity. We’re living in the Simon Cowell generation.”
The disdain for Leona, 1D, Sam Buttery ‘et al’ didn’t end there. “Everyone seems to be a product of a TV show,” he went on to NME. “It’s made music quite generic, which I find very frustrating.”
“It’s down to bands like us to buck that trend and fight against the mindless, temporary pop,” he declared.
Hasn’t this man even HEARD of Aidan Grimshaw?
