I just bought Kate Miller Heidke's new album, Curiouser. And there is something that annoys me. Curiouser is sitting around number 3 in the Australian charts at the moment. Everyone is saying how great this 'new' artist is.
Um. No. Actually, she has been around for a few years now. The only reason that she is currently popular and getting airplay is: one of her songs was used on Neighbours.
Ugh. Why does decent Australian talent only get exposure in conjunction with decidedly indecent Australian soap operas?
I like to pay out Americans for the fact they live in a country full of stupid people. Sadly, rather like swine flu, stupidity seems to be a worldwide pandemic...
