Insult of the Week Day

From the Guardian's "Sgt. Pepper Must Die!," a series of interviews with rock celebrities slamming the most overrated albums ever. Here's Billy Childish, "prime mover of British garage rock," dishing Sgt. Pepper.

It sounds like it took six months to shit out. The Beatles were the victims of their success. This is middle-of-the-road rock music for plumbers. Or people who drive round in Citroens - the sort of corporate hippies who ruined rock music.

Me-OUCH! Of course, it would have more bite if anyone knew who the fuck Billy Childish is.
Two stars our of five.
