Wow, That's A New One

I elicited some angry comments for liking something this time. Strange. You people are fucked.

Anyway, someone named Anonymous, regarding The Piranhas, said:

[...The Piranhas still blow. Who the fuck do they think they are? The William S. Burroughs' of avant-punk fucking rock? The cut and paste technique was boring in print when Billy Boy was trying to pull it off in the first place. So what the fuck makes anyone think it's going to work for music? Dumb fuck art students. Oooh, you guys are so far out. Their shit albums don't even fucking matter, and none of them are fit to even load in Timmy Vulgar's equipment. If I wanted painful listening, I'll refer to Harry Pussy or someone else that is at least rewarding and honest. Piranhas records are nothing but empty poses and fruitless attempts to convince themselves they are relevant. News fucking flash: they aren't. Never were. And anyone who is falling for their starving artists making music line of crap is a bigger fool than that mongoloid man-child the Piranhas call a front-man.]

Hey I'm not a fan of Burrough's either, except Edgar Rice. I rarely care that much about lyrical content (and I try my damnedest not to read a lyric sheet, unless I'm looking to make someone look stupid) so the cut and paste doesn't bother me. As for someone being 'rewarding and honest', uh, I don't find The Piranhas to be unrewarding and dishonest. As for their 'relevancy', they managed to get under this fella's skin, which is good enough for me. I never made any starving artists type comments, so I don't know if the reader is referring to yours truly as a 'bigger fool than the mongoloid man-child', but if he is, it's refreshing to be insulted by someone with a degree of literacy. As for: "The cut and paste technique was boring in print when Billy Boy was trying to pull it off in the first place. So what the fuck makes anyone think it's going to work for music?" - that is wrong. People cut and paste in music all the goddamn time. Both in terms of lyrical content and in the actual music.

Anonymous Pt. II made the following thoughtful comment:

[Oh great, another fucking moron. There's good art (say, The Fall, or Chrome, or Swell Maps) and then there's the bad art for the sake of art barrel scrapings that the Piranhas put out. OOOh, they're so challenging to listen to. Man, they're really doing something innovative. Wow. The sounds of Greg Lowery taking a dump has more artistic merit than 'Piscis Clangor', which is probably the absolute height of self-impressed drivel posing as dangerous and experimental music ever. And I hate the Zodiac Killers. The Piranhas are the poster boys for all you faggots out there who now think they are too cool for garage-punk and have moved on to something 'meaningful' and 'exciting'. Retards.]

First off, it's not my place to imagine the sonic artistry resulting from the cacophony of Greg Lowery taking a dump. Second, this guy's intellectual engine has limited horsepower if he is making a serious claim that 'Piscis Clangor' is 'probably the absolute height of self-impressed drivel posing as dangerous and experimental music ever'. How much 'experimental' music is this guy listening to? Even if he don't like The Piranhas, the field of experimental bands is a a tough one to get through, and trust me on this, there are far worse 'experimental bands'.
