I’ve spent this afternoon in Birmingham listening to the cities “finest” bands, and needless to say it has been an emotional roller coaster.
But after soon realising that the scene is mainly made up of people who have never managed to get over the fact that they were too late to see Nirvana live, I’ve come to the conclusion that the infamous B-Town genre is just a load of rehashed twaddle.
So here’s a list of 5 things that are better than B’Town, and they all begin with the letter B.
The Beatles – They had an equally as annoying accent, but at least they actually stood for something. If in another 50 years time you’re still glorifying Superfood then we have failed as a society.
Books – Honestly they’re great. You should try reading one sometime. You might actually learn something. Please Note: The NME does not constitute as a book.
Brighton – The other (better) B’Town. It’s got a much more vibrant music scene and there’s no language barrier. Plus it has a coastline, instead of being slap bang in the middle of Britain.
Brit-pop – This genre was responsible for an actual war between the North and South. People even died and stuff. The only negative point was Liam Gallagher.
Blowjobs – Yep, that’s right. Sucking cock is better than listening to B-Town.
