autotune is today's version of lip-synching.
Lip synching is still the main form of entertainment in many a reality show though isn't it? I only watch the cookery ones, so I might be wrong.

Iron Maiden insisted on playing live on TOTP and they were quite a new band at the time

Any band in this day and age who do the forced handclap or crowd response thing live suck. Yes, especially Green Day. Let it happen organically or don't bother, if I want to go to a panto I'll go to one.

I get why people hate Ant and Dec, it's the same kind of smugness that turns people off Lineker.  But they are absolute monsters at their job, unbelievably slick and bounce off each other so well.  I can respect how good they've got at their craft.

Damon Albarn has more talent in his little finger than the Gallagher brothers combined. Just look at what he’s done with Blur and Gorillaz, the man is a genius and deserves his flowers.

(This might not be such an unpopular opinion on here but it is when I’ve spoken to people about the same subject in Liverpool).

This is completely true, although I'm far from convinced about The Good, The Bad and The Queen, they're just a slightly more upbeat Chaz and Dave

I find Albarn an absolute bellend, and similarly don't think that much of Blur's music. But he is talented - as his stuff with Gorillaz proves.

The Gallagher pricks, on the other hand, stumbled on a rich seam of 'right place, right time' and milked it for all its worth. The elder prick had enough material for two albums that seemed great but were very 'of that time' and haven't aged at all well. Everything after that was derivative dung.

I like Pulp, and most of the other bands listed above (agree on the Albarn v Gallagher’s shout). Don’t think Hazell or SDDL will be inviting me and my record collection round anytime soon.

Agree on Albarn vs Gallaghers.

I don't mind Albarn really, don't listen to him much but makes some interesting stuff and I can appreciate his talent. Agree with everyone about Oasis, a few good songs early on but they've been dining out on that since.

Elastica for me…

Although the drummer from Pulp used to live next door to my sister and fixed her car for her a couple of times.

Which was nice.

Suede? And someone upthread was talking about another band dining out for life on two now dated sounding albums? Ultimately, Albarn has produced the more interesting stuff, but he needs to work with good collaborators, which is why his solo albums are so dull and why Blur became less interesting when Graeme started concentrating more on his solo work.

Definitely Maybe is still a thrilling album, Morning Glory could have been even better if Oasis had subbed in their better B-sides, but arguing the toss on this is like replaying a civil war. Damon and Noel came from different places (geographically and thematically) and were both a big part of a hugely exciting time in music and the wider culture. That can be enough.
