- Way beyond the Rubicon
Yeah, I had some mates who were mad into them who dragged me along and they have appeared at various festivals over the years, honestly they were pretty good every time but i'll never actually go out of my way to see them.I’ve only seen them once at that famous Electric Picnic performance that was the Sex Pistols at the Manchester Free Trade Hall for our generation. They were shit.
I just remember everyone got mad at them a few years ago circa Everything Now I think because they did this pisstake-y media campaign and I was just a bit taken aback by the reaction. Like, HOW DARE YOU TRY AND DO SOMETHING IRONIC, MEDIA MUST BE SERIOUS. Everything Now (the song) is pretty good in a radio friendly bland way. I'd rather them than Ed Sheeran.
