ASBO for crap taste in music

Okay, so she was also playing it too loud at all hours of the day and night, but I like to think that those who gave out the ASBO also wanted to make an example of her for playing crap music.

Our daughter bought Sandi Thom's album at the weekend...

Can parents issue ASBOs?

I have a recurring daydream where I am a music taste law enforcer and get to pull out my bade and arrest/beat pained listeners to Keane, Kaiser Chiefs, Coldplay, Shed Seven, Charlatans..............

Interesting missing 'g'. At least I didn't typo the 'd' for a 'b' too...

Owh! Well you know our record collection better than most (still buzzing from the delayed reaction time it took hyper-cool-music-loving Chris to spot it wasn't your CD collection in the dining room), but it would be wrong of me to duck your remarks. Our catholic (very small 'c') tastes have enjoyed amounts of Kaiser Chiefs [though we still don't own any of their tracks] for some mindless tub-thumping singing-along. Shed Seven I will let you have [even though I know Patrische will beat me for it (with proviso that he is right about S7 v Oasis)], but The Charlatans? Hmm. Tricky one this. I loved them dearly in their early baggy period when they were basically StoneRosesLite. I saw them live at Trent Poly (or was it Rock City?) and danced so hard my belt fell off (don't ask). Of course, it was all downhill from there and their migration to being Primal Stones wannabes did nothing for me.

Coldplay? I offer you the Mitch Benn response.

(BTW - took me several reads to work out where the missing 'g' was... I thought for ages you meant to type 'blade'!)

OK, I will merely give cautions for listeners to The Charlatans. In my day you see most Charlatans fans were in to them because they kinda sounded like Oasis...

PS - no way am I allowing you to call your own music tastes catholic. I'm sure all Charlatans fans also have Pere Ubu and Einsturzende' on their shelves...
