First of all, this is not an attack of the indie genre of music, the majority is not to my taste, but each to their own.
I have noticed that there a severe lack of men in indie music anymore. Instead we have boys. Indie boys. There is nothing manly about these "males" at all. They stand ill nourished in their tight jeans, tight bright coloured t-shirts (usually pink. ooooo, intimidating) and designer hair cuts. They all look exactly the same but still sit there saying "being indie allows me to express myself as an individual." They know all about, and follow, all the latest trends in fashion and music and celebrity gossip, yet still have the nerve to call themselves non-conformists. It is clear by looking at any indie guy that their balls are yet to drop, and by the looks of most of them, probably never will.
These boys have no idea what men are, and would shit themselves if they ever spoke to someone with underarm hair. I will safely bet none of them have ever done a day of hard labor. The closest any of them would have gotten to sweat is from their hourly masturbating to their own reflection.
Now, I am not a shovanist guy, at all. But I take pride in expressing my masculinity in more traditional ways, such as leaving prettiness, glamour, beauty and the like to the other sex. They are better at it. But I am seeing too many indie boys trying to tell us "I'm so manly I can wear pink neon vests." F*#k off! Men are hairy, lumpy, fat and ugly. We reek of B.O. and are proud. It is what separates us from women.
Take the perfect example, Patrick Wolf.
Now, I have watched the blog below titled Continuation of the love of Ms. Patrick Wolf. To Lesley (who tried to argue against me on several different occasions), no, this boy is not beautiful. He is not a man. You were right in that he would never have B.O., this is because he is yet to develop any form of testosterone.
This is a guy who has nothing going for him in terms of masculinity. A scrawny, punsey little dweeb who has serious gender issues. This concert is not a musical performance but a strip show. Where is the talent? If all you need to draw a crowd is to take off your clothes then I have been seriously lied to. What would happen to real musicians and performers with actual talent and who actually think about their performance technique get their fans by stripping down if they were to follow this lead? What would happen if Kerry King decided he would help his performance by stripping down? I dont think he would have the same respect he has obtained in the music industry (although it is amusing to consider).
Where is the masculinity? I am seeing pleanty of femininity, but nothing that suggests he has any pubes.
Wolf boy is no better then Kylie or Paris Hilton, using their feminine essence and lack of modesty to attract their audience. Where is the imagination? Where is the talent? Where is the f*#king credibility? I am seeing none.
Don't get me wrong, there are pleanty of indie bands with tones of talent. The Strokes are a great example. A bunch of butt ugly guys getting an audience due to song writing ability alone. I think Patrick wolf and The Wombats should take some tips from The Strokes. (Slayer would be better, but hey, you can't have it all.)
In conclusion, indie boys are ghey.
