Henry Cow?

Everyone raves about Henry Cow.

Why??!!

What am I missing?!

Will I be hit all of a sudden by their alleged AWESOMENESS after enough exposure?

Or do I just... not... like 'em?

It's odd, because they are directly connected to a lot of the things I really adore.

Seriously, I am losing Muso Cred points here... ;-P

Hahaha! Don't worry about feeling obligated to like stuff. There are a lot of bands I should like but don't.

Haha, oh yes. I'm just a little perturbed at how much certain people of my acquaintance care about this issue! At 2 o'clock this morning I was being implored by someone to worship Henry Cow or be forever debased in their estimation! Sheesh. o__O

Example for me: Sonic Youth.

I mean, it's experimental, punk-influenced, and sound savvy. However, I can't say I've enjoyed a full album of theirs. I do like some songs here and there, though.

I've had dates like that. (Not lately, I hasten to add!) Person looks perfect on paper, and turns out to be... a bunch of attributes that don't amount to a whole person that takes your fancy. ;-P

I've never investigated Sonic Youth (big reputation there again - I'm always strangely reluctant with stuff that's 'highly acclaimed'...).

Hehe, I quite agree. Some people are just really vehement about this - I don't know why! ^_^

I thought Western Culture was a good album. Can't say I cared much for In Praise of Learning though.

Well, I'm probably being a little premature here. I've only heard the first two albums so far. Maybe the 'weirder' ones will suit me better! >_<

This journal is not a private diary, it is more like an occasional, imaginary column. Therefore, much of it is on public display. However, if you want to read my occasional attempts at creative writing, my Caution Elf tells me I should only show that stuff to my friends. You know what to do. :-)

NB: If you add me in an unsolicited fashion, please introduce yourself. Otherwise I will probably ignore you.
