Thrash Hits

You Me At Six were commissioned to write a song about a rollercoaster. GTFO.

Hugh Platt is a bitter, old man, but he’s not as clever as he thinks he is. You Me At Six have just confused the hell out of him, for example.

I now this got announced yesterday, and really, given our form at irritating fans of You Me At Six by repeatedly not providing them with the uncritically-positive reviews their fanbase craves, we probably should’ve been on this sooner but someone somewhere in Thorpe Park’s PR department thought it was a good idea to give You Me At Six money to write a song about their new rollercoaster.

In other news, humankind are apparently still the dominant species on planet Earth, which remain the only known object in the entire cosmos where life has been proven to exist.

Back in 2008, around this very time of year, a slew of incredibly hostile and grammatically-imprecise comments were thrown in my direction. The reason? A review I wrote of You Me At Six’s debut album. You can read it here. My personal favourite was from a rather pleasant chap called Stuart Lunken: “You Are a Fucking DickHead!” he wrote. “Im Guna Find Where You Live And Actually Rip Your Fucking Head Off.” (sic) Raaacch made a well-argued point, too – “you need a new pair off ears and a different job cuz your obviosly utter shit at this one” (sic) – while Will made a very reasoned and measured statement: “the writer is obviously a spastic”. To be fair, Natalie, behind a string of misspelled words – or shuld tht b werdz? – made a valid point: “fuck off!!u basically tuk a luk at a foto of them and decided u didnt lyk them, it happens 2 b an amazin album and hes not from fuckin dorset” (sic). She’s right. Josh Franceschi isn’t from Dorset. I got Weybridge (in Surrey, where YM@6 originate) confused with Weymouth (which is in Dorset) – and for that, I can only apologise. Nevertheless, the point – about him singing in a nasally, affected American accent when he’s actually from England remains the same. As does my opinion of the album. It’s truly terrible.
