Lazy Journalism vs New Young Pony Club

When you read interviews with pop stars, one of the most frequently asked questions is: "How would you describe the sound of your new record?"

Why? Because it means the journalist doesn't have to go to the effort of thinking up flowery adjectives and eovcative descriptions of their own. They can just say, "Tom from Kasabian describes his new album as 'very normal'" (note: this actually happened). That way, the musician sounds dense and ineloquent, not the writer. Clever, huh?

Anyway, to get to my point, I recently wrote on Twitter that New Young Pony Club's new material showed not one iota of musical progression from their debut album (not in a derogatory way, for I love their first album). The band's petulant reply is one of my favourite tweets of all time. Here it is in all its technicolour glory.

See if you agree by listening to their new single, Chaos.
