What a load of shite, television is not particularly good anyway, but fuck me!! EastEnders has got to be one of the worst things I have ever seen. I don’t watch it but if my missus has the telly on I sometimes find myself observing the utter nonsense & being pulled in and experiencing the perfetic shambles of a soap.. Did I say soap? Haha soap is meant to clean you, this stupid depressing boring load of shite leaves you feeling depressed and suicidal there is fuck all clean about this soap boys and girls!!
Okay so it’s been on our screens for years now, not sure how many and I’m certainly not going to Google it. So let’s say 20 years or whatever, arsed..
How the bloody hell has such shite lasted so long? Seriously what’s all that about? Are you all nuts? Or am i just missing the crafted scripts and superior acting skills, am i the mad one? I think not!
I’ve been thinking back to when I was younger and it was on and it’s the same old nonsense. Everyone fucking hates each other, they batter each other, rob each other’s babies, sell shit in their market stores, threaten to set the Michelins on to them and then have a pint in the vic.
If that Albert square was a real place would I fuck want to move there, would you? Murders, rapists, drug addicts, prostitutes, thieves, con men, plastic gangster/mechanic/ cracks heads , baby swappers, hit and runners, everyone shagging each others husband/wife; you name it the squares got it.. Surprised they haven’t had a terrorist attack yet. oops best watch my mouth, don’t want to offend anyone (honest). However I am massively offended by the shite choice of prime time television offered to us hard working citizens of the united fucked up kingdom, is this all we are worth?
There is only about 20 houses in the square and you’ve got all this to contend with..
Every time I’ve been around the house watched a bit of an episode it’s the same old bollocks, someone’s having a badddd time, blow the bastard place up… Why doesn’t someone make a happy soap? give people hope and let them see that life is not all that grim, i don’t watch much TV at all coz its basically shite and unfortunately brainwashes a lot of gullible people but i tell you that that program has to be in my eyes one of the most degrading insulting piles of shite ever to be witnessed by my eyes.. Each to their own, you may disagree, personally i couldn’t give a fuck…

The Sums – supporting The Real People 17-08-2012
IT WAS a Friday night and a legendary Scouse line up was appearing at the Lomax. Shaun McCoy went along to enjoy three enthralling sets in a venue were the music is literally in your face.
First on stage were Orange Room, a 4-piece who merge together the styles of Oasis, the Beatles and the Who, into their own brand of indie rock. They started with Noise & Confusion a punky/indie number with a sharp riff and the southern US drawl of singer Lee Peers. Just Another Night Out was filled with vocal angst and tension accompanied by very rhythmic drumming and powerful guitars.
As well as the heavier edged indie material the band toned things down with the transcendent I’ll Stick Around an early Who/Beatles-esque catchy tune with a more laid back tone and sweeter harmonies. They are a commendable support group on what is an intimidating bill featuring two of the city’s finest groups – the Sums and the Real People.
The Sums strike while the iron is hot with a classic Smaller track Is, which Noel Gallagher originally played lead guitar on. Then they’re straight into the ferocious Vegetable – Digsy’s starkly passionate lead vocal is one of the best around. He may look like a bantam weight but he has the voice of a heavy weight. From seething passion to the more heartfelt Small Smile with fine harmonies from both Digsy and bassist Chris Mullin. A majority of their set features songs off their recent album If Only, plus a few new ones thrown in.
The Sums are a stylish outfit with plenty of depth in all departments – vocals, bass, drums and the slick lead guitar of Lee Watson. The big man has got such a powerful delivery of psychedelic effects and howling solos. They finished with a more rousing version of Who Cares, which is one of ‘the’ modern classics in my book.
From one classic incarnation to another – The Real People, lead by the inspirational Chris and Tony Griffiths. They opened with 20 Seconds, a track that sets the pace for an exhilarating set the audience lap up with fervour. The atmosphere whips up more into frenzy as the band delivered classic track after classic track such as People In the Telly and the sublime I Don’t Belong which is a vintage indie ballad by anyone’s standards.
You can see why the Real People have been such a big influence on other bands like Oasis in the Beatle-esque Some Things Must Change. The Griffiths brothers are great harmonisers and create anthemic tracks that know how to hit the spot. The Real People are one of those bands who attract new and younger fans all the time while consolidating their loyal cult following built up over the years. They have an array of songs to satisfy their audiences like the majestic Ocean Child showing a more laidback melodic approach. The encore featured three more crowd favourites including the Kinks-like toe-tapper Rayners Lane. Here endeth the lesson.
