God bless those cheeky scamps in You Me At Six. Growing up in the public glare ain’t easy, especially when your Myspace account acquires you the sort of fame at 15 that plenty of old pub rockers are still craving long into their 30s. But in the hermetically-sealed dome of next generation e-fame, every move is scrutinised, and every misstep recorded. Quite literally everyone can hear you scream. Or not of course, because the quintet from Weybridge have always been the poppiest of pop punk acts. Not quite Mcfly, but for a long while not too far short.

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.

Weybridge quintet You Me At Six (or, depending how MySpace you’re feeling, youmeatsix) are most definitely a product of their times.

When emo has become the new chav, and when today’s undemanding pop audiences eschew any depth or feeling in the music they listen to for a self-indulgent fetishism of laboured hairstyles and bands as banal and limpid as Bryan Adams’ recent back catalogue, You Me At Six are the perfect poster boys for their so-called scene.
