In the latest edition of the ever essential Record collector mag, they have a section on the most overated artists/bands. Naturally in order to cause some fuss and get the poison pen letters mailed they have gone for the likes of The Smiths, The Clash, Beach Boys, and Van Morrison, rather than the obvious Oasis, Stone Roses, Manics, and U2, which wouldn't cause nearly as much fuss.
The comment on The Smiths, is the tired old, 'music to commit suicide to'.
Anyone biting ?
Still at least they have got The Fall and The Byrds in there so it ain't all bad.
