Thought I’d listen to a sampler of recent music. Talk about disappointing. It was about as innovative as a cow.

There were a couple of good songs, some intelligent lyrics, a sense of humour, but most of it was showing off an ability to play an uninteresting instrument. Great: high–quality & instantly forgettable. What’s the point?

My opinion’s not because I’m getting old. My generation was punk. The electronic lads came well after. They were innovative. They did get up in the morning. They weren’t dead lazy.

But, now, dead dead dead lazy. Better produced same same same, same again. What’s the point?

I’d guess this must be one of pop’s barren periods.

Come, friendly bombs, fell this cow,
pop’s not fit for humans now.
