Fat Freddy’s Drop

by noizyboy on March 19, 2009

So, Simon Sweetman’s live review of Fat Freddy’s Drop (he really, really didn’t like them) seems to have touched a nerve amongst some in the Wellington music scene. A few (actually, quite a lot) have come out in support of Sweetman – says Josef…

the perfect music for the iPod generation who wouldn’t know good music if it bit them in the ass.

And Hugh…

Thank goodness someone has seen the elephant in the room and had the courage to say it like it is. FFD as individuals may be talented, but the group sound is noise and inutterably boring. And the incessent chirping about how good they are is the ultimate sadness. Well done Simon

But, likewise, the FFD supporters are also out in force. From a guy called guy…

Your douchery has no limits. FFD are awesome. Regardless of what you think. You.. not surprisingly are not.

And Seb says…

How about realising the success they have had. They must be doing something right for them to do as well as they have. You just have poor taste in music.

So, what do you think? The Drop, hot or not?
