Hey Neil, Ben Butler is crap, but Jihad Ain't

Stabbs 24 Sep 2003 11:11

Was reading through your reviews and couldn't agree more about the patronising and underwhelming Ben Butler. However, was surprised at the dim review of Jihad Against America! You usually like bands who have the courage of their convictions.

Another view: these kids are fun and have tremendous energy. There is a wicked wit behind songs like "And You Shall Know Us By the Trail of Art Students..." and their anti-US rants. Yes, the sets are short, but its a one-joke band and they know it. Why push the point by playing longer? Jihad's singer and her twin cohorts are probably still refining their performances, but they are doing it with fearless, balls-out bravado worthy of more experienced rock stars.

Watch this band. The gag may not last long enough for Jihad to survive forever in this humorous formula, but the performers in it will doubtless go on to do ace things.</title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div></title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div>

You are right, I was very annoyed at Ben at the time.</title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div></title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div>
