Yesterday I found myself watching highlights of BBC Radio 1’s Big Weekend in Norwich, an annual British festival whose lineup this year included the likes of Taylor Swift, Foo Fighters and Muse. Among those within the highlight reel were the Mercury Prize-winning alt-J, a band whose fame, popularity and credibility I’ve always questioned. I’ve previously dedicated a post to alt-J‘s ‘talents’, and after watching the group perform yesterday, not only can I not fathom why it is that alt-J are even a band at all, I felt it was time for another article.
Then, as these things often do, an absolute gem of a video came to my attention. Some stoners relentlessly taking the piss out of alt-J, in the most incredible fashion. Rather than witter on, I’ll let you sample the incredible video above and see for yourself. I’m glad to see I’m not alone in my loathing for alt-J.
