Whitehead Bursts Onto Music Scene – Pus Everywhere
What makes an uninteresting TV host think he should pursue a singing career? Who the hell knows, but the unfortunately acne-esque named, Axle Whitehead thinks the world (or at least Australia) needs its very own half arsed Chris Martin, by releasing the single ‘I Don’t Do Surprises’ from his forthcoming album ‘Losing Sleep.’
He is right though – the song is no surprise. It’s the kind of general radio friendly steaming pile of disposable commercial tripe that few people, who aren’t either giggly 16 year old girls or 45 year old women entertaining hopeless toy-boy fantasies, will bother with.
Is the Australian Recording industry so insecure about itself that it has to wait until someone is in the public eye enough that they will ‘risk’ a recording contract?
Have some balls and get out to the pubs and clubs of this great brown land of ours and have a look at some of the kids that leave a pint of blood on stage every Friday and Saturday night, then roll the dice and sign some of them!
I don’t fucking care if they’re pop singers or boy-bands or metal heads or dance acts or hardcore punks or whatever – but don’t insult our collective intelligence by constructing and force feeding us manufactured flavourless music by ‘artists’ without the runs on the board.
