Scooting around the web for info on the new Arctic Monkeys i stumbled upon some startling heresy that's bound to ruffle a few feathers in the lone-loony bunker. Viz, a quote from Popist patron saint Neil Tennant endorsing the nu indie!

"We are going through a phase where the term 'pop' is used to mean rubbish. But bands like the Arctic Monkeys, Kaiser Chiefs, The Killers and Franz Ferdinand make pop music. They like to think they are rock but they are pop and all have a sense of fun about what they do and have a great look. It annoys me that pop gets clogged up with Pop Idol and reality TV rubbish."

C.f. the apostasy of Poptimist ideological godfather Morley viz. Girls Aloud last year, further evidence of the tide turning...
