Really interesting piece on Channel 4 about the diversity of the Brit awards. https://www.facebook.com/Channel4News/v ... 9/?fref=nf
Always thought it a load of bollocks but this year, it appears it is especially so. There is a petition #BritsSoWhite but surely it should be #BritsSoShite. Coming from the funk, soul sister side of the road, I find it laughable that no acts from popular but less mainstream genres are ever included. I don't like grime music – as my boys would say, you ain't sposed to, bra – but they are mighty enthusiastic about it and seem to see it as a form of protest to listen to it. As your man says, he doesn't shop in Selfridges, this is the voice of Poundland, albeit a tuneless, artless, disembodied one (but maybe that's what my mum would've said about Billy Bragg when I was 16...).
What say yous? x
