Some bands are born to be shite, some aspire to shiteness, but very few (apart from Coldplay), get to announce their utter shiteness to an unprepared and gormless world.

I give you the View. Think of them as the hideous offspring of Supergrass and the Libertines and you won't go far wrong.

I am, however, prepared to give some credit to the numpties in two respects:

a) they come from Dundee, home of Rockstar games,
b) they've been banned from every Travelodge in the United Kingdom.

For those of you haven't sampled the delights provided by Travelodge, I say don't even think about it. Nylon curtains, a plastic fantastic bathroom sourced from a Kowloon coolies underpants, a 'continental' breakfast at £6 per crossaint, miserable gurning acned staff.

I could go on.

They (The View) ARE utterly awful, aren't they? I can't believe how they're being touted as the most brilliant new act for 2007 when they are simply rubbish.

They're a bit like The Proclaimers with longer hair and more band members.

One of their lyrics tells us "I've had the same jeans on for four days."



Travelodges are shit too.

I'm no stranger to Travelodge - we have them here, too. I'm married to the World's Cheapest Man, so I've seen (and smelled) many a hotel room that would make a cockroach shudder and scuttle off. "But, dear, it was only $19.99 a night!"

Travelodge is on the ritzy end for us.

I should've married a rich man... sigh.

The places we stay don't even have a lounge area, much less a band. :-p

Why the "Y" in New Orleans (pre-Katrina) was such a bargoon...

Roaches the size of Buicks ...

The lead singer wears women's raincoats with the sleeves rolled up. Twat.

The thing about Travelodges is that everything inside your room seems to be made out of that completely flame-retardant (and comfort-retardant) material which is the closest you might get to sleeping in something ceramic aside from the bath.

Couldn't burn one down if you tried, I'm sure.
