I'd like to cancel Van Morrison, please.
Never mind the 'outrageous' song titles, but the new single may be the most objectionably awful piece of music ever written,...


While the album touches upon the romantic sentiment and late-night warmth that people love him for, the overriding theme is a straight-talking commentary on contemporary life. It’s a stance that informs ‘Dead Beat Saturday Night’ as it addresses lockdown life in matter-of-fact style: “No life, no gigs, no choice, no voice.” It also surfaces in the barroom rock’n’roll of ‘Where Have All The Rebels Gone’, which bemoans the lack of real independent thought, so often replaced in the modern age by mere posturing. And as for Morrison’s views on social media? They are summed up on ‘Why Are You On Facebook?’.

I got my brother one of these for xmas last year




I remember making these cut out cardboard dolls of the Weetabix skins when they'd evolved into break dancers.


Weetabix featured hugely in my upbringing

Only made it a minute in. That's fucking terrible stuff altogether.

Read a comment recently where someone said that Van Morrison has lived through a bunch of civil rights movements and never wrote anything about them but then releases a double album of protest music when he's asked to wash his hands.

Maybe a couple of them are non-binary and being ironic post modernists?


To be fair, if I had to deal with that many Weetabix, I'd shit myself. I think anyone would.
