I now want them to burn in a plane explosion.






Not really, in case someone jumps down my throat. But we could be two or three more mentions of the name away from that changing.

When you make music as great as they do, they could call themselves “The Stool Samples” and I’d still love them.

On the topic of terrible band names: I spent eight years ignoring Ladytron because that's a really shit band name, and have spent the last six making up for this.

This is good.

Giving the whole album it's from a spin now.

My avatar on here is Lin-Manuel Miranda. Granted it’s from his other musical, but that should be a strong hint at how I feel about Hamilton.

I’m at the stage where I just want to go listen to Biffy Clyro so I can confirm that I hate them as much as I hate hearing about them. Autocorrect hates them and wishes their name was Buffy Clark.

I'll be honest, I thought your avatar was Jesus Quintana from The Big Lebowski (but since it doesn't really exactly look like him, I thought maybe that spinoff idea finally got made).

Nice! “Again” just hits you hard. I find the rest of their material hit or miss but they have some good tracks in there for sure!

That’s why I made an iOS keyboard shortcut and just type “Biff” and it spells out the whole name.

I want to believe the origin story that the name is a spoonerism of a pen that was an item of Cliff Richard merch, i.e. a Cliffy biro.

Speaking of Cliff Richard, sure he's a joke but at times he had the good sense to get The Shadows as his backing band and they are basically gods to me.



I'm not even joking. Pretty much the whole reason I am such a music fan. My grandad introduced me to them and I spent my earliest years "borrowing" all of his cassettes. I still have some of them around the place. We lost him last year and at his funeral the soundtrack was pretty much just The Shadows.

One of these days I'll get around to nailing Wonderful Land on guitar.

I have no idea what you’re talking about, but I didn’t expect anyone to necessarily know who it was just as I also didn’t expect cobbler to know the name of the guy who wrote some music he heard while moving furniture the other day.




I like the music from Hamilton and In the Heights about as much as mikal likes Biffy Clyro, though.

I really don’t know what to make of how it corrects Biffy to Buffy but when i intentionally typed Buffy it changed it to Buddy. Something about an elf?
