HIGH ROTATION = HIGH REGURGITATION
everywhere I go recently it feels like the same 'ol shit.. the song remains the same.. the same 'ol regulars spun with apparent irony and in-joke knowing by the too cool for school dj's.. night after night.. venue after venue.. the same 'ol songs.. over and over.. that feeling of deja vu with different decor but the same dickheads.. the song remains the same and the boredom sets in.. boredom leading to twitchiness.. leading to anger.. leading to pidgeon english yoda philosophical debates.. leads to wanting to smash all those records and laugh hysterically whilst I torch the place.. can't escape the shit.. coz the shit's everywhere.. joke waaay beyond the joke now..
yeah.. I'm talking about this big wacky early 80's new wave revival thing.. and yeah, I like this shit.. don't get me wrong.. I really dig the Bloc Party, the Interpol, the Killers and Franz Ferdinand.. I've bought the CD's.. I've funked out to 'em.. I've even traced back to the oldskool classic stuff.. the New Order, the Specials, the Clash.. digging them icey cold synths.. them jagged 2 tone spidery guitar riffs.. keyboards worn as guitars.. the robot drumming.. it's a damn cool vibe..
but I'm starting to get seriously bored with all these venues just now cashing in on it.. and, now it seems.. everywhere you freaking go.. tragic aneorexic pale white goth nerds with their floppy hair, skinny ties and uber fashion victim nerd attire are dancing away in their epilectic flocks to DJ's attempting to be all cool and ironic, playing their JOY DIVISION, HUMAN LEAGUE, DAVID BOWIE and DURAN DURAN with gibbering enthusiasm.. seriously.. where's the fun in it if it's played to death everywhere you go.. just coz it's "SO HOT RIGHT NOW"..?
it used to be fun when this stuff was a rarity.. and just one or two venues played this stuff exclusively.. and you'd stagger into them all hammered at 3AM.. and laugh at how dorky (and oh-so-cool) this shit wuz as ya did your worst Breakfast Club spastic flailing arms dance.. only to fall over on numerous attempts.. piss y'self larfing and get thrown out by the bouncer.. yeah, back then it was fun coz you KNEW it wuz wrong.. and all the posers were busy thrashing something else..
but now.. every fucking venue is trying to do it.. and all the poser kids have latched onto it and strangled the life out've it.. and instead of how FUN it is.. it's all about how COOL you're not.. and everywhere they're doing it.. and you can't fucking escape it.. and once again, a perfectly silly little underground movement gets ruined by the copycats.. and now you can't get a fucken gig anywhere unless your yet another skinny tie / jangling 2-timing chord / wailing off-key / skinny drug casualty 80's revival band.. and it totally shits me.. where's the different venues? does it all hafta be this shit? nothing but punk venues / 80's new wave venues and dickhead top 40 RnB / commercial hiphop house venues?
people who only like one type of music over and over drilled into their brains.. should fucking get their head's checked..
*yawn*.. when's the next new thing coming? coz I'm bored shitless of this one already..
