Thanks to Matt Hartley for highlighting the musically illiterate culture that masquerades as hip and groovy music entertainment.

Any basic high school academic analysis will tell you that a repetitive, narrow range vocal melody (rap) against a simplistic, repetitive bass and drums is technically poor and amateurish. Local venues with the ever-growing number of DJs please take note.

Splendour in the Grass merely represents our ever-growing, dumbed down society and music culture, and if alcohol was taken out of the equation I don’t think half these shows would even exist.

    that’s all hollowed out.
