Robbie Williams, described as the fat dancer from Take That by Noel Gallagher, took to his blog this week to criticize a whole range of bands from the 90’s including Ride, Adorable and Hurricane #1.
In the post he stated (all in capitals for some reason)
“ANY QUARTER-DECENT 3 CHORD KNOBHEADS COULD AND DID GET A DEAL IN THE 90’S …. I WON’T NAME NAMES COS IT WOULD BE UNFAIR ON
ECHOBELLY, SHED 7, SYMPOSIUM, MENSWEAR, SLEEPER, HURRICANE NUMBER 1, RIDE, THE BLUETONES (APART FROM THAT ONE SONG), OCEAN COLOUR SCENE (APART FROM THAT ONE SONG…HANG ON NAH NOT EVEN THAT SONG) NORTHERN UPROAR, CHAPTERHOUSE, CURVE, SALAD, ADORABLE, CUD, SPACEHOG, KULA SHAKER, THE AUDIENCE, POWDER, KING MAKER, GENEVA (SUB-SUEDE – CAN YOU IMAGINE?)
SHOULD I GO ON? COS I CAN AND THEY SURE FUCKING DID”
Andy Bell and Pete Fij were quick to comment on Twitter.
The Sun was also quick to pick up on the story and yesterday (March 22nd) quoted Pete Fijalkowski from Adorable as saying:
“I’ve written a song I’d have loved to have offered to Robbie to consider, but it seems he isn’t my biggest fan.”
We’ll leave you with one of the few moments from Robbie Williams career when he wasn’t attempting to sound like one of the bands on his hate list. Enjoy!
