    Any of CW's Queen-apologists care to comment?
    Yeah not going to bother. Queen aren't Queen without the King Queen. Queen.

    Only just realized that the Nick Cave some CWers seem to really enjoy is the same who wrote And The Ass Saw The Angel. Absolutely loved that book so am tempted to try out some of his albums.

    You know, I've never read that book. I even have a copy of it around somewhere, just never got around to it. I've heard it's pretty good though. I'd be surprised if it wasn't in fact, given the author.

    Read it about 5-6 years ago when a Cave fan lent it to me. Apparently made him depressed/cry all the time. Didn't quite have the same effect on me, but still a very very good story IMO and a must read.

    Public Enemy - By the time I get to Arizona. Honestly love these guys so much, listening to rappers these days they're main "beef" being **** like "haters whispering behind their back" and having their rides pulled over by "racist" police every time they go out I miss guys like PE who would rap about **** that was actually important.

    Brilliant group, love their stuff so much.

    Yeah hip hop these days is a bit of a joke, primarily to sell stuff. Mind, it's probably a good thing these guys have nothing bad in their lives to write about!

    There's tonnes of good hip-hop around.

    Yeah, was just about to say. People who say hip hop is crap 'these days' are just not looking hard enough imo.

    Applies to everything Nick Cave has ever made. Including the moustache.

    I thought it was a rather good book, even leaving aside the fact is was written by a quote-unquote "celebrity"; I mean Cave's obviously a cut above your normal sleb turned author, but it's not his primary field of artistic expression anyway.

    Not an easy read & in fact pretty bloody heavy going at times, but it does touch on a lot of Sir Nicholas's pet themes: murder, scripture, redemption & anal rape.

    "as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."

    Though I agree with this, I would point out that people who formulate such an opinion are not entirely wrong to do so, because their really is a lot of garbage gansta rap type stuff which gets into the mainstream.

    First off, nice work using the metric 'tonne'. Woefully underused, in my view.

    I'm referring more to pop hip-hip. The same 'not looking hard enough' argument really applies to anyone who says any style of music is dead. There's plenty of tight polka around too just as there's some killer jazz rock around (*cough* my band *cough*) if you look hard enough. The stuff which is getting the most exposure, though, I don't find terribly inspired.

    That's a terrible way of quantifying it though isn't it? Saying a whole genre is a joke because of what is played on Today FM with Kyle Sandilands and Andrew G, or whatever the **** radio is like these days.
