    Yeah same here. Thats the same thing with his solo stuff too, The production is brilliant and he hides his horrible voice behind it.

    yeh, voice aside, this greasy little simian twerp also acts like a cross between a rasta elder and Mark E Smith, hoping to come across like a dread Manc mystic. Instead he comes across like a chippy twat who's smoked too much weed and read too many badly written self-help books.

    h8rz just don't get it. They aren't clever enough to appreciate his true genius and should stick to girls aloud and other image-driven pap :p

    and where in his massive collection of philosophy books (presumably a collection of Peter Tosh lyrics and one of those Hallmark calendars with little lifestyle slogans for each month) does it recommend getting your cock off and threatening to cut off an air hostess' hands?

    I agree that Ian Brown doesnt have much going for him EXCEPT the dance. :cool:

    When my 3 year old son fell over recently Ian Brown picked him up and dusted him down, before handing him back to me.

    True story, seem like a nice chap

    Yeh, but Ian Brown is really embarrassing.

    so perhaps he could join a decent band in a Bez-style capacity? And shut the fuck up?

    You could get in touch and suggest this to him but he might come at you with a plastic knife shouting "ooh-ooh, I am the mystic monkey man and I've read some situationist slogans". And that wouldn't be nice.

    Although I've heard that, much like old style Daleks, the way he walks means he can't go up or down stairs so that's your escape route sorted.

    no, no, I get it. You fancy him cos of his swaggering monkey dance, and so does rollem, and so does dotcommunist and his mum (although she's had him).

    But couldn't he just do some monkey-swaggering porn and stop putting records out.

    His voice seems to have got worse. I remember seeing a very early live video of the Stone Roses and he was passable. Not a good singer by any means, but at least he was in tune. Well, most of the time anyway. Some time later I heard a live tape from very late in the band's career, 1995 IIRC. Obv it started with 'I Wanna be Adored.' The build-up bit at the start was beautifully played, and then in came Brown bawling tunelessly over the top, which rather spoiled the effect. I can't think he's got any better since and he was no good when I saw him ten years ago, although to be fair to him he wasn't quite as shocking as I was expecting either.

    I dont fancy him, but he's not that offensive, like.

    And I like the swagger dance he does in the Fool's Gold vid. :cool:

    He's a legend.

    care to expand?

    from where does his legendary status derive?
     
  23. mwgdrwg

    From being the King Monkey.
     
  24. El Jefe

    El Jefe .. the Rural Juror

    right.

    That's a rather circular response.

    What's so legendary about being "The King Monkey"? And what does being The King Monkey entail?

    Ian Brown is better than Jimmy Cliff.

    an interesting yardstick. The Monkey King vs creatively bankrupt old reggae hack who's crap live and hasn't made a decent record in nearly 40 years.

    *desperately thinks*

    Ian Brown is better than Neutral Milk Hotel

    an argument so abject and desperate it's not worth the bother. Although I'm sure Jeff Mangan is RUBBISH at doing a monkey dance, so it doesn't all go his way.
