Back when the entire Pitchfork editorial staff was getting their name tattooed on their knuckles, Canada’s Arcade Fire were about as threatening as a group of CPAs. (Although there were a lot of ‘em.)
Now with a new album to promote, the Neon Bible band are mad as hell and they’re not gonna take it anymore. The indie bed-wetters have only gone and challenged U2, Oasis and the Rolling Stones out for a rumble. Our money’s on the Stones. Ronnie has a mean right hook. Whined frontman WIn Butler:
"In the UK there’s this kind of rock star competition. I don’t know if U2 started it, or the Stones or Oasis, but a lot of bands think in terms of: ‘I’m going to be the biggest band in the world. F*ck all those bands who’ve got no ambition.’ I think that’s a total crock of sh*t."
No one has told the Stones about the invention of the telephone and nobody cares what Oasis thinks, so they were unavailable for comment. However, Bono quickly set up a thinktank with Angelina Jolie to campaign for the recognition of crocks of sh*t everywhere.
