King Charles “Love Lust”


A picture is worth a shit.  I listened to this bouncy pop song quite a few times on my road trip for KU tour, totally on purpose and I enjoyed it.  And now, after seeing the video, I want to forget this band entirely.  I just don’t trust people with good hair and makeup, that must be it.  A similar thing happened with Interpol: Once they were in the NY Times’ Style section, I stopped being able to take their music as genuine.  Now, I know “authenticity” is not the only, or even primary, value in music, and I listen to and love a lot of artifice.  But while this song makes me bob my head and sing, these images make me want to turn it off.

    That’s good hair? What about SVIIB’s or Kim Gordon’s hair and makeup?

      Definitely good hair on King Charles. I thought about going into a lot more detail on that rant, but opted not to take the time. SVIIB are an interesting example, because I chose to “trust” them and got burned by the pettiness of Disconnect From Desire. The wounds are still fresh!
