Birthday Competition!

June 26, 2009

To celebrate my first birthday, I thought I’d have a small competition. The prize is a kindly donated Man Rock 81 T-shirt,  signed by the bestest manrockers in the universe. In ALL universes!

The task to be tackled is…

A misguided whippersnapper says to you ‘Manrock is shit’. What would be your finely crafted, well honed reply to their woefully uneducated stance?

This demands some degree of subtlety – ‘Fuck off, arsehole’ just won’t cut the mustard.

To enter, leave a comment below. The result will be announced on Friday 10th July (barring disasters, like an attack of furballs) and T-shirt dispatched forthwith.

    Have you ever actually listened to Man Rock? Witnessed it first hand? Actually been there up close and personal, taking in every beat, every chord, every breath? If not then don’t knock it until you’ve actually given it a bloody good try..
    Is it the fact that the guys in the band are lithe and dressed in tight jeans or lycra? Is it the fact that they have hair, lot’s of it? Does that scare you a little? Relax, these guys are guys, manly guys, who are so in touch with who they are that they are not afraid to stray from the norm. They are comfortable being who they are.. Can you honestly say that you’re comfortable in your own guise, or do you think you have to prove yourself and be some kind of macho man?
    Relax a little, live a little, be open minded, you never know, you just might enjoy it..

    i would start by melting some faces by either singing or playing some hot leg, playing would be best given my singing is not in the remotest bit delightful….. then i would walk away smugly knowing there is another convert who was obviously just too shy to admit it, failing that i would fix the person in questions hearing aid as they were obviously having problems with it

    Well my aurally challenged ‘friend’ obviously u have never sampled the delights of MAN ROCK, man rock is the musical distillation of all that is man and i will think u will find that it is the greatest genre of music ever created for your listening delight, there is no sense of opinion with man rock once u hear it u are hooked for life, its a drug really (but a good one) so i think you should refrain from verbalising such thoughts until u have had the sheer pleasure in ur ears that is red lighr fever by hot leg, thank you, good day n keep rockin’!!!!

    Well of course you would think that. After all to fully appreciate the full magnificence and splender of Manrock you need several things. The intelligence to recognise the genius that is Hot Leg and Justin Hawkins amazing voice, as well as a well developed sense of fun and the ability to really enjoy life and the incredible assault on your eardrums that is what Manrock is all about! Unfortunately however………………….

    No. No to your prejudice. No to your lecherous detestion of true self-expression. All that Manrock represents, nay, all that Manrock IS can be found within our dearest moments of collective experience that is life.
    Who are you to say that the tumultuous vibrations produced by the Leg are no more stirring than the deepest thrashings of the cerebral cortex? How can love, hate, fear or any other jangling neurological impulse stand up to vicious drums, 16 blissful strings and the voice of a crazy-ass angel? I have stood on the frontline of splendor and you have not. Therein lies your fallacy.
