Well, that's Two Hours of My Life I'll Never See Again

Part of my advancement into senility and cultural irrelevance involves the acceptance that pop culture will not be as it was. I almost accept this. But every now and then, something happens which churns my guts up a little too much.

This time it's MTV2's decision to drop 120 Minutes from the schedule and replace with some weak-arsed Vintage show or somesuch. The flickering light of the truly alternative is that little bit close to cold extinction. Truly thrilling videos were on that channel; now the early hours can be condemned to the same shit heap that the crayon-scented NME regularly reports on. Music seems to be on the way to serving as nothing but a soundtrack to visiting fucking Top Shop. Maybe that's all it ever was.

As I type, MTV2 is showing The Stone Roses' I Wanna Be Adored as part of their Top Ten of 1991. An admirable tune, which caused a considerable stir on its release in 1989. Foetus-sucking cretins.

Fuck the lot of them.

Your pal, Coc x
