Japanese Voyeurs. Watch the video below and it's all pretty explanatory.
I actually had the misfortune of seeing them live once and wrote about it here:
England really doesn't need its own version of Avril Lavigne 10 years after the genuine one married and divorced some dude from Sum 41 and turned into a blonde polished white teeth monstrosity. One is enough and may she dither in peace.
Bands like Japanese Voyeurs skillfully make both men and women seem like criminals in music. We have the stereotypical blonde nauseating frontwoman who does the most annoying thing ever - playing fairweather guitar i.e. she can't play and therefore doesn't play when she 'sings' badly as that much concentration would blow her tiny pea brain. You then have the 4 long-haired 'I'm-going-to-wear-a-Kiss-tshirt-to-prove-I-know-about-music' dumb imbecile backing band ie. session musicians who are past it and not talented enough to create original music for themselves.
Dumb? Couldn't have said it better myself.
If you want even more of a laugh, go to their Myspace and read about their songwriting technique. Bands this bad have to be named and shamed for the sake of modern music and for my own sanity.
Grrrl Sounds moving!
