Mark E. Smith (The Fall) mouthing off in the Guardian,00.html

Hilarious interview.

Too much of what I hear nowadays reminds me of Stars on 45 - they were a novelty act from Holland in the early 80s. They'd string all these bits of music together, like the Beatles and Madness and the Buggles. But they'd use the original backing tracks and stretch them so it'd fit in with the beat and the vocals - which is a lot like what they do nowadays. To me it's laughable. I used to piss myself at stuff like that when I was 16.

Madonna, for instance - spending two million or however much sampling Abba's Gimme, Gimme, Gimme. What's the point? If you spent a week working at it you could whistle a tune as good as that. It's not just her, though, they're all bone idle.
It used to be the case that models attached themselves to real rock stars - Anita Pallenberg and Marianne Faithfull with the Stones in the 60s, for instance - but that's not the case nowadays. That says it all for me. Any berk with a scruffy hairdo and a couple of songs can find an outlet and hero-worship like that now.
