ZZ, what do make to Plan B? He's been absolutely slated for his "acoustic grime" everywhere, with it's "sub-Eminem" lyrics. And yet, and yet- although they become somewhat predictable, his lyrics are brilliantly crafted, I love the way he's talking all this disgusting shit in neatly crafted metre and rhyme. I think he's incredibly talented, actually, but not putting it to best use, yet.

I was talking to Tim, that bloke who used to be in Orlando, and he had a very succinct summary of Plan B- "he certainly knows how to swear".

I like the fact that he undermines his own amorality and keeps doubling back on himself all the time - therefore very similar to Eminem's outlook; you have to listen to and absorb his stuff on several levels.

My initial feeling on first hearing "Sick 2 Def" was: what a bugger that Johnny Cash isn't around to cover it. Can't really recall hearing anything like it before, except maybe "Autobiography Of A Crackhead" (and will SOMEONE do something about getting the SUAD back catalogue out on CD again plz?), but this goes further and actually did put the shit up me, which I guess was his intention.

Haha. What a fantastic point about Johnny Cash.

Yes, of course, he keeps doubling back on himself, makin you aware of how deliberate this amoral delivery is. This sounds tediously post-modern of course, but it generates some moments of real frisson. Sick 2 Def, his story of a murder told backwards, ends with that line "and he puts the CD back in the case, there's a picture of me on the cover"- that's a great little moment that. I can't say it put the shit up me as such, but I did have a certain "don't go there" feeling which is pretty rare these days.

People of OTF, I quite recommend searching out and sampling some of his Plan B's stuff. It's weird.

FOr someone who considers himself "Down with the kids" I'm terrified by how many of these bands I have never heard of. Go on Crusoe, be honest. You look up obscure titles and post them here knowing full well we'll be baffled.

Current listening for me

Depeche Mode - John the Revelator
Feeder - Buck Rogers
BIg Black - Kerosene

But mainly I listen to albums.

hobbes - my shameful secret is that I've only ever heard the songs I list for these bands - about one song each. Ask me to name an album or anything else they've done and I'd be stumped.

Ha, indeed. I read back what I'd written today and it's very hamfisted.

It's a great track though.
