Cannot stand this aggro white boy shit or anything like it. I need to listen to more Sleaford Mods.

it's fool's gold. But some of the rhythm section isn't awful.
I had to deal with a bartender singing all of the lyrics at me upon first listen , so that didn't help either.

I think this is where I'm at with them now too, having revisited the albums. Some songs are better than others, the highs are fairly high, but some of the lyrics and delivery just bother me (though to be fair, some are pretty good too). The Dropkick Murphys choruses.. ugh, completely ruin some songs for me. I'll probably stick some of the better tracks on a playlist and move on. But they seem like their hearts are in the right place and I'm happy they're out there doing what they want and that people seem to really like them.

IDLES are a band of confounding levels of quality. Complete waffles. Maybe I'd catch them live some time if in the right mood, their shows look fun.

Jesus Lizard for young trendy British people who have never heard the Jesus Lizard. Lots of contrived antics.

Crap.
