Om obskyra engelska popband som inte ens finns på Spotify

Chuck Klosterman skriver en artikel på A.V. Club om ett obskyrt engelskt popband som inte ens finns på Spotify. Det är fyllt av ironi och fantasier, och är väldigt roligt. Så här skriver han bland annat om albumet Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band:

It mostly seems like a slightly superior incarnation of The Rolling Stones’ Their Satanic Majesties Request, a record that (ironically) came out seven months after this one. Pop archivists might be intrigued by this strange parallel between the Beatles and the Stones catalogue—it often seems as if every interesting thing The Rolling Stones ever did was directly preceded by something the Beatles had already accomplished, and it almost feels like the Stones completely stopped evolving once the Beatles broke up in 1970. But this, of course, is simply a coincidence. I mean, what kind of bozo would compare the Beatles to The Rolling Stones?

Ja, det kan man ju fråga sig…
