End Times Are Upon Us

By che - 19 April 2005 8

In an occurrence that is possibly signalling the end of times FM104.7 and JJJ both have the same feature album for the week, The Cat Empire – 2 Shoes.

What’s Your opinion?

The J’s have been well bought no question.

But they still play a more interesting mix than the commercials.

Having said that with their patina of cool JJJ have lead a whole generation down a garden path and stunted true alternative culture.

Why are you surprised? Considering JJJ as alternative is a joke. Look at the hottest 100 winners. The last ones on an indie label were the Whitlams *aaargh*. They were followed by Offspring (Sony)MMM boys Powderfinger (Universal), Mix 106 favourite Alex Lloyd (EMI), QOTSA (Interscope), Jet (EMI), Franz Ferdinand (Sony). How alternative is that?
Solution: Listen to JJJ only late nights (Roots, Fenella, Punk)and tune into 2XX, RRR on the web,
webradios and of course Insatiable Banalities on Riot-act (good job Johnboy and Nigel!!!) to find real alternative music.

I can’t stand the Cat Empire. I bought their last CD, hated it, and flogged it off on eBay.

I know its a bit of a stretch for Canberra related stuff but FM 104.7 are ours even if everything is handed to them from afar.

And there was no way I was putting this under “Local Music” so don’t any of you other buggers change it on me.
