Justin Heazlewood makes the Hottest 100

By johnboy - 26 January 2011 21

One time Canberran Justin Heazlewood (aka The Bedroom Philosopher) just got played as part of the TripleJ Hottest 100.

This is his effort “Northcote (So Hungover)”.

Any other Canberrans making the list this year?

Spot on.

I’m thinking you’re missing just one word ‘derivative’

as in Music these days is terrible/pretentious/repetitive/boring/derivative/crap … how long can it keep covering itself?

The point is, exciting new music can’t be found on JJJ (apart from the occasional gem).

I am, your argument is invalid.

Perhaps Thoroughly Smashed and co think the early 90s was a renaissance period for music? This song puts up a credible argument against that line of thought in more ways than one: http://www.abc.net.au/triplej/safran/mp3/university_elevator_music.mp3

Seriously, that crap is classed as music. I remember why I stopped listening to JJJ in the mid 90s now. I will leave it for the ‘I am so classy, be an individual and be like me’ crowd. The same ones who call those dodgy sculptures around town ‘art’ and hang around Kingston and Manuka.

Back in my day all the music we listened to was grounbreaking/wild/legendary/classic.
Music these days is terrible/pretentious/repetitive/boring/crap
Kids these days are lazy/stupid/naughty/disrespectful.

I enjoyed this muchly. Hipster scum, die the lot of you.

Indeed, nothing is as good as it used to be.

“I’m So Postmodern” is a cack, though.

I actually saw the very last Easybeats concert. It was pretty wild.

Triple j is complete rubbish.

Agreed. Either I’m getting too old, or the music they play on JJJ these days is 90% crap. Listening to the hottest 100 today I was struck by how mediocre a lot of the songs were.

Just to test this for myself recently I listened to the first few Hottest 100s and sure enough, today’s JJJ is more or less terrible in comparison.

The Easybeats. Lobby Lloyd and the Coloured Balls. Billy Thorpe and the Aztecs. The Masters Apprentices. AC/DC. Redgum. Goanna. Australian Crawl. Etc…

And this pretentious shite. I listened to it in disbelief, and then made the mistake of clicking on the “I’m so postmodern” clip thinking that it had to be better, and came within a hairs breadth of breaking a window so that I could obtain a shard of broken glass with which to stab myself in the heart and end it all.

This is a sad, sad day for Australian music.

I think you might have missed the point.
