Default The Nathan Barley generation

Nathan Barley (the fella in my avatar) was a cult tv show that parodied on the 'idiots' of our world. Namely the 'i-pod generation', you know, the twats that follow the trends, or are so ahead of the trend that they are ironically lampooning the trend and are so cool that they take the piss out of the trend before it even becomes the trend. You know what I mean.

It all basically revolved around ironic electro, idiotic haircuts and inventing slang words that barely make any sense (current favourite is 'hench').

Here are some musical culprits

MySpace.com - WE SMOKE ***S - Holloway, UK - Electro / Punk / Indie - www.myspace.com/wesmoke***s

MySpace.com - Does It Offend You, Yeah? ALBUM OUT NOW! - Earth, UK - Electro / Punk / Indie - www.myspace.com/doesitoffendyou

MySpace.com - DAVID WOLF - Tacoma, Washington - Electro / Club / Thrash - www.myspace.com/davidwolfmusic


I mean for **** sake. The last one's default is a bloke with the obligatory skinny jeans and leather jacket smashing a boombox over a deer's head.

I loved Nathan Barley. I know why it was panned in the media , I think it was a little too close to home

Fact: Nathan Barley is my favourite show ever, i think every little detail they put into it is perfect.

Another fact: It's amazing how many people don't get the joke.

Check out this lot though, well fucking futile.
