Alright, so I came across this band named bond (intentionally lowercase). It is comprised of four very attractive women playing classical music with electronic beats underneath. They have been described as “the Spice Girls of classical music.” I can't determine if that quote comes from their detractors or supporters.

But here is the problem, I have been sitting here desperately trying to think of something clever, or snarky, to write about them, but these girls can play. They have received degrees and honors from real universities. In fact, they are clearly more qualified to discuss music than I am, so where does that leave me?

Then while hunting around their website and find this picture, (note I have tried to upload this picture, but blogger just doesn't want to let me right now. I will put it in later if I can, but I am sure you can find any number of pictures to get an idea of what I am talking about) or watch the video on their website (which you should check out because it features the group playing music on pirate radio so that people can dance. the local army then decides that they need to go out and quash this bit of rebellion.) and I want to be obnoxious again. I am at a loss.

I don't know why it is easier to accept music from ugly people, but it is. If it were possible, I would have used my looks to further my career. Also, I hear combination of classical and electronic music and I similarly want to dismiss it. This isn't to say that I am going to go out and buy all of their albums, but I think their music deserves to be discussed on its own merits. I guess this post is a way of announcing to the world that I am a big sexist snobbish jerk.

  2. I "discovered" bond on a trip to southeast Asia several years ago - they were huge there and all over (the very fascinating) MTV Asia, alongside Linkin Park, Pearl Jam, and British too-old-to-be-a-boy-band Blue. At the time, I thought it was just a funny indicator of the cultural difference between our crass commercialism and Singapore's. But who's laughing now?
