  • Embarrassing dad guardian g2 on fannypack

    Did anyone read Mondays Guardian G2? They're at it again!

    I don't read the music press, apart from the odd Mojo mag about old bands that I find in the bathroom, to me the music press today is absolute shite. So for me, the G2's piece about Fannypack was the first time I've seen anything about them in the UK. And boy did they swallow it whole... Guardian is somewhat like an embarrassing 'cool' dad. Anything musical or youth orientated, usually found in the Guide is written this way. They even called the piece Beastie Girls!

    So far in the US, Fannypack has been met with pretty much a universal pannning, apart from no idea at all opionforming publications such as Rolling Stone... For those who have heard these girls, Fannypack is not Hip Hop. It's Hip Pop, which translates as Pop. The flyposters around town of Christina Aliguera (spelling, I know) dressed all fly, with a hollowed out boombox on her shoulder, barely bumper level, despite wearing pornstar perspex platforms, to a genuine New York Yellow cab, sums up both Fannypack and the Guardian - can't wait to hear your reactions if you've heard them yet...

    I'm sure the Guardian just read the press release that Fannypacks record label sent them - them being TOMMYBOY!!

    WTF?

    http://www.fannypack.org/

    Get in there and knock yourself out - their first single is 'Cameltoe'. Yeah, an ode to frontal saddlebags oft found on leg warmer wearing ladies that like to ride 'em up that little bit higher.

    BTW here's the lyrics for those that dare not venture to the site.


    Walking down the street
    Something caught my eye
    A growing epidemic
    That really ainÂ’t fly
    This middle aged lady
    I gotta be blunt
    Her spandex biker shorts
    Were creeping up the front
    I could see her uterus
    Her pants were too tight
    She musnÂ’t own panties
    There were none in sight
    She walked right by
    The poor woman didnÂ’t know
    She had a frontal wedgie
    A Cameltoe

    Umm Hmm
    ThatÂ’s right
    Uh Huh
    Oh No
    Fix yourself girl
    You got a Cameltoe

    Girl thatÂ’s gotta hurt
    Take some time and adjust
    CanÂ’t you see people staring
    And making a fuss
    Could not believe my eyes
    Had to take a second glance
    Is your crotch hungry girl?
    Cause itÂ’s eating your pants
    Do you enjoy the commotion
    And attention it brings?
    The only lips I wanna see
    Are the ones that sing
    In public putting on
    An X rated show
    Grossing people out
    With your Cameltoe

    Repeat Chorus

    First day of spring and by the looks of things
    These girls done forgot how to dress
    A little too quick to wearin pum pum shorts
    And itÂ’s causing me much distress
    Whoomp there it is yaÂ’ll right in the front
    Everybody come and get a good look
    I can see everything through the panty cling
    Every crannie and every nook
    You better take a quick minute before you step outside
    Check the area thats pubic
    Or youÂ’ll get your panties all up in a bunch
    All twisted up like rubic
    Take these words of advice cause its not very nice
    I wanna put you all in the know
    Girls dont sleep dont let your pants creep
    Watch out for the Cameltoe.

    Repeat Chorus

      I must confess I haven't heard them yet, but I've seen the moaning on Soulstrut. Not wanting to be controversial here, but does it matter whether they're real or not? Run DMC were nice middle class boys but they made great records. I don't think they were any more 'real' than Vanilla Ice, other than they were black.

      Most of what's wrong with hip hop is this endless discussion of what's real and what's fake and keeping it real and yadda yadda yadda. God, it's tedious. There's some great records coming out, that's all I know.

      Personally, I love the beats and production on Christina Aguilera's new single. I think it rocks.

      Records are either good or they're not.

        These guys look dreadful. Dire mishmash of 80's and 12 yr old tweenies. I do a lot of work with music labels and Ive seen some god damn shockers!

        One pop hop artist I do like is Amy Winehouse. She got flack because she is managed by simon fuller but her stuff is decently produced and pretty decent. Check the album playback.

          Of course not.

          But if the Guardian are going to pigeonhole, they really should pigeonhole correctly.

          Nick&#39;s right - it&#39;s Hip Pop, not Hip Hop.

            Is this where hip-hop becomes like white rock circa 1976, all those older brother-types furrowing their brows over &#39;Brain Salad Surgery&#39; &amp; ponderous interviews about double-necked guitar-soloing techniques? Except while wearing Nikes...

              Yes, but Hip Pop only exists as a category among hip hop enthusiasts to separate things they don&#39;t approve of from the things they do. It doesn&#39;t exist anywhere else.

                It&#39;s more the Guardian&#39;s reaction that I was talking about, they really make me laugh&#33;

                    You could say that about any kind of enthusiast, Bill. Fannypack reminds me of A Simpson&#39;s episode, where the studio decides to create an new character for Itchy &amp; Scratchy, a dog, with shades. &quot;That&#39;s great, but let&#39;s make him more Hip Hop. Say 15%&quot; (not a totally accurate quote, but you get the drift&#33

                    I&#39;m not bothered by it, I&#39;m happy with the Hip Hop I like, it just makes me laugh, especially at the G2.

                              Isn&#39;t it strange how virtually any situation in life could be encapsulated by a quote from the Simpsons? They should do a book of Simpsons&#39; quotations. Hang on, maybe [I] should do a book of Simpsons&#39; quotations.
