THE INDELICATES – We Hate The Kids (7″ Single)

We Hate The Kids CoverSad Gnome Records SG0601: 31st July 2006
1. We Hate The Kids
“And there’s always a monk to get set on fire, and there’s always a crack-head charismatic liar, and there’s always a depth to which you can aspire, and there’s always a teenager due to expire”
2. Burn All The Photographs
“She’d angled the barrel in to her chin, the last of the face cream still smeared on her skin”

‘We Hate The Kids’ is The Indelicates’ attempt to write no less than an anthem for our times. They cast their eyes over the state of Popular music and find it sadly lacking. It’s a song for a time where Simon Cowell unashamedly reduces Pop to a pure commodity, a time where things like passion, depth and integrity are entirely expendable. It slowly builds to the point of bursting while Simon and Julia spit out lines steeped in venom. I would say they have succeeded, this is the definition of an anthem.

‘Burn All The Photographs’ is a solo performance by Julia in the style of Kate Bush fronting Muse. It can’t hope but feel inferior next to an A-side of such quality.
