“She never loved me, why can’t anyone?” asks
Craig Nicholls, lead singer of The Vines, in “Get Free.” Well
Craig, the answer is simple: you suck!
While some people are more entertaining when under the influence of drugs
or alcohol, Nicholls has been known to lie, offer incoherent ramblings or just
space out during interviews. Rumour has it that he is so spacy because there
is always “beautiful music” playing in his head. Well, if that’s
the case, why don’t we ever get to hear any of it?
OK, so some of their recorded songs aren’t too shabby, but if you’ve
ever experienced The Vines’ live show (poor you) one can see that Nicholls’ need
to feed his ego overshadows the need to play music properly, or worse still,
sing in key. At least when Britney Spears performs she has the decency to lip-synch
to over-produced vocals to save our poor ears; she also doesn’t make
such hideous faces.
Nicholls should take his Kurt Cobain wannabe antics to the extreme and just...
no, that would only garner more fame for such an undeserving and untalented
