Thread Name: Be Good Tanyas - Over-rated?
Subject: RE: Be Good Tanyas - Over-rated?
O-K, Noddy, you want to keep out good taste and bad taste but leave the rest? (Maybe you should proofread/copyedit more.)
I stand by my remarks with the following addendum: a lot of people with _some_ talent end up making really bad music with it, by the time they have been through some of the processes you describe.
But I think that promoters taking people with _no_ talent and making them musical stars doesn't really happen often. It would be too much work and eventually it gets noticed that it's fake. Remember Milli Vanilli?
Fact is there are lots of people with some talent, good looks, no taste, and the ambition to make it big, and that's who promoters sort through (probably looking at the glossy photos in the promo packages before listening to the music).
However I certainly don't think The B-G-T's fall into that category, and they don't merit cheap shots just because they are doing well. Even if they are overplayed.
