For me it has to be Seasick Steve. Loads of people going on about how wonderful he is.

I can hear the guitar playing is good, but otherwise he just sounds like any other "dang doggone, mah babee done left me an' mah dawg died" tedious country-blues artist.

All those bands like Franz Ferdinand, the Zutons etc.

Oh,and the arctic monkeys.

WTF is seasick steve though?

UnquietDad · 19/11/2008 15:16

He's a beardy guitar-strumming bloke in dungarees.

He sounds like someone I would not get.

Well, I've never heard of them, so they must have left some corners of the market unpenetrated.

Everything. I'm getting old. [Potters off to listen to Def Lappard]

I also can't for the life of me see any reason for Kanye West. A woman I work with, who is about my age (late 30s) and otherwise seems like a fairly sane human being, was getting terribly excited about going to see him the other day. I just looked at her in incomprehension. I wanted to ask "do you actually listen to his... stuff?" but I thought that would sound silly.

UnquietDad · 19/11/2008 15:55

Moondog - have I missed something? A joke? Steve Reay and Seasick Steve are two different people.

how bizarre.
i have no recollectio of writing reay, nor do i know of this person

I am totally with you on Seasick Steve. What's more he appears to be taking over Radio 2 - I'm sure he is on the Radcliffe & Maconie show at least once a week.
The only thing I like about him is the title of his album.
