I think a combination of the songs & the performance being uninspiring.

The performance did nothing to grab your attention , the music was just your average bland white boy guitar pop that was nothing out of the ordinary. They may as well have turned the jukebox or had a pub covers band on rather than have them there.

I'd say that the Chiefs showed more promise than Hard-Fi with their initial release, which had a few strong-ish tunes. Their follow-up was a grave sonic offence. Would you not agree with point 1, tho?

The Kooks had one song that was kinda decent pop - "She Moves In Her Own Way". The other radio hits I've heard were poor attempts to match the good qualities of that song.

Alas. Arctic Monkeys stand alone as the most talented and consistent bunch of so-and-so's in the current England-based Britpop scene.

I hate the Kaiser Chiefs for duping me by making 2 really good singles & releasing them first therefore making me think all their stuff was that good.

Oh how I was wrong.

I accepted Kaiser Chiefs for what they were on the first album but as you say the second is awful tat. What was point one sorry? lol

These New Puritans show a lot of promise. The album is nothing like the singles and they have an experimental streak that is bursting to get out.

Add the Wombats to the shit list too.
