Retracting a previous statement...

On the 13th of January 2005 I posted Busted Are Broken. Due to the upsetting nature of the day some statements I made in haste, without knowing the full extent of what my actions would mean. Having realised recently the terrible mistake I have made I would like to retract the following statement:

"now instead of having just Busted we will very soon have Charlie's new band FightStar... So the music world really is a better place, and I can't wait."

This change of opinion is due to FightStar's performance of "Palahniuk's Laughter" last night on the Friday Night Project, Channel 4 (answers on how to pronounce Palahniuk, in comments please). I would like it to be noted that this was the first time I had ever heard their particular style of "music" and do NOT wish to be linked in anyway to the rise (or more probably fall into obscurity) of Fightstar.

The world of music is not now a better place, they were terrible. I can't put it better than my sister did last night in a text message:

"Dear god fightstar BLOW! charlie split up busted 4 THAT?"

You may not believe it is true, but you really are going to wish Busted never broke up if the teenie boppers back Fightstar....

    Assuming it's pronounced the same way as Chuck Palahniuk, the author of Fight Club, it's like "Paula Nick".

    I actually stopped watching Friday Night Project before Fightstar really played anything as I thought the show to be utterly gash. I've had enough of Jimmy Carr now, thanks C4.

    All I can suggest is take a few minutes to listen to their debut EP and you may change your mind again. In their defense, the Friday Night Project was during the time when they were touring and doing a gig pretty much every day as well as dealing with the press... I'm not surprised that Charlie and Al didn't have much of a voice. For a first time TV performance for a band who were hyped up to the max, I thought they were pretty damn good!

    "/ To be honist.

    Fightstar are better than busted.

    And if you dont agree. Then you should stop living on that 'Pop' dream and get over yourself.
