I speak of course of Ian Brown.

His fans keep on coming to On The Record and having a pop at all and sundry. Boy, Sunday’s gig is going to be SO exciting, if Mary is anything to go by. The second coming, anyone?

I cannot believe the audacity and blatent ignorance of these obvious student “we know what’s cool” types above. Take my advice and keep your lack of taste and complete ignorance to brilliance to yourself until your cheap beer and crap music college days are over and you look deeper into music and discover that Ian Brown is infact one of the cleverest people to enter the music business ever. His lyrics are ingenius and his melodies and harmonies are sencond to none. i’ve been to see Him on many ocasions including Dublin Castle, Hi:Fi, the Ambassador and Glen Eagles in Kerry and everytime I’ve come away with a sense of pride at having being in the presence of a living legend. So when you’ve gotten the hype of the pop culture bands such as the Thrills and the Blizzard (who were better doing cover versions in the Stables in Mullingar) and found some taste in music feel free listen to ian Browns work and appreciate it like you should!

Wow. I mean, wow. Post of the year on so many different levels. For once in my life, words fail me. Over to you.
