The Guardian Unlimited last week featured a fantastic article about the dull nature of the lyrics in today’s modern music. One of the “experts” referenced in the article is a Lull favorite, XTC’s Andy Partridge, whose particularly pointed words from “No Thugs In Our House” (from another Lull favorite, XTC’s English Settlement) are compared to the bland nothings crooned by Coldplay’s Chris Martin to particularly good effect. Who’s selling more albums today? That’s pretty obvious, but is just so, so sad.
