I agree with you though nic fit. I've got friends who hate bands and singers because of who they are and not what they do. Or because they are popular.
I say bring on the Merzbow and JoJo split release. (Though to be honest I find Merzbow's solo work quite iritating.)

Hell, I've got Zu and A Short Apnea cds next to "smash hits from the 60's" on my cd displayer (<---how do you call them?).
Liking something does not necessary imply an "objective", "artistic" value in the thing liked, it's just a feeling, a sensation, a matter of taste or even plain fun, after all. Like watching a Bergman movie followed by Toxic Avenger. One can enjoy both, even if they are on totally "different levels" from an objective pov.
nah?
porky summed it up pretty well in his post:

* replace "her" with band/artist name of choice.
sorry for the rant. have a nice day!

o no i totally agree, i listen to the beatles, beach boys, ramones, stones, van morrison, and tons of hip hop just as much as wierder louder stuff, but something like mia which is being advertised as "radical" is much harder for me to buy into, therefore people who listen to more "out there" music allready id think would have a hard time buying into mia's stuff, if that clears it up a little bit

I totally agree. I listen to Mouthus and Simian Mobile Disco, Double Leopards and Franz Ferdinand, Death Unit and Radio 4, sometimes in a row.

I wasn't aware that anyone had said that M.I.A.'s music was radical. It's pop music - the first album is bloody good pop music, and, for pop music, is bloody radical. The second album is nowhere as good as the first, but if someone gave me a choice between listening to that or listening to Wolf Eyes, I'd take the M.I.A. any day.

I like her production and ecletic use of international sounds and beats. Even her little rebellious renegade persona fits it to and her non talented vocals not to mention she's not bad looking. But where as some LPs need several listens to get the full picture and grow into, hers quickly looses its luster and gets put aside. In fact it just gets annoying after too many listens. She's also a complete idiot after having read a few of her interviews or quite possibly mildly retarded. I don't really even know if she's sure of what she's trying to represent and she wines alot in almost complete gibberish. So to sum things up she has terrible fashion, talks too much, looks good, dances poorly, is pretty annoying with nice beats. The perfect recipe for a hate fuck.

it's not about her being pop, it's about her being crappy, untalented pop.

i much rather listen to paris hilton's album, sure it might not booster my indie cred but at least half the songs are good and the other are so embarransingly bad they are a riot of fun.

This music is supremely annoying.

are you sure you are not talking about mya?
 

M.I.A. has, like, a "slow" song per record.
I'm not trying to "persuade" you to like her music or anything, I just want to make sure we're talking about the same person , becuz I'm totally with you on this R&Bullshit thing, but I don't think M.I.A. has anything to do with that kind of music (except maybe for a couple songs, but it's a quite stretched link imo).
