Jimmy Urine's All Pissed

Mindless Self Indulgence's lead singer noodles on and keeps it real

Urine goes on and on about how unoriginality rankles him. And he can afford to talk, as MSI possesses the ultimate peanut butter-chocolate combination (a comparison Urine wholeheartedly concurs with).

"It's been bugging me lately. Black Rebel Motorcycle Club sounds like the Jesus and Mary Chain; the Sound sounds like Blondie — and I could keep going on and on — except without the songs. It's like they've studied one band and said 'Let's rip off the sound they have, but let's not have any good songs.' I think the press are really the one to kill on that, because the bands are probably just like 'I really like Blondie,' but the press is all of a sudden like 'Oh, they're geniuses coming from another world.' And I'm like, 'Yeah, a world of, like, ten years ago — what, did you fuckin' sleep through it?' I'm sorry, but I still listen to my Joy Division records. I still have those 12-inches, and I'm going to sell them on eBay at one point."
