The Observer Music Monthly ran its annual poll of the best albums at the tail end of last year and something about it bothered BlackPlastic.
The chart featured such artists as Charlotte Church and, worst of all, Mercury Music Prize thief Anthony and the Johnsons. This in itself did not offend, what was too much is that the readers' list finished off with a mocking list of some of the artists who had been voted for just once. Amongst the tat were Cut Copy. Now whilst BlackPlastic admits that he never got around to voting, that so many people regard Charlotte or Anthony better than the frankly very enjoyable Cut Copy is what is laughable, not the fact that someone actually DID vote for our antipodean friends.
Cut Copy produce lovely warm melody's comprised of elements of Prince, post punk and pure pop. If you like Anthony and the Johnsons more than Cut Copy you ARE actually dead inside. Stop wasting our time.
