A MAN is insisting to his children that he is still relevant because he loves music by new bands such Arctic Monkeys.
Nathan Muir, who is 53, regularly updates his record collection with albums from cutting edge artists such as The Fratellis, The Libertines and The Zutons.
Muir said: “I take pride in staying up-to-date with the latest trends in the world of music. Just look at this new Hoosiers t-shirt I’m wearing.
“Whether it’s kicking back with the latest Kasabian CD or trying to find out when Razorlight are next touring, I’ve definitely got my finger on the pulse.”
Muir’s teenage daughter Charlotte said: “I know it’s a cliche for teenage children to find their father pathetic, but I actually have reason to. None of my friends’ dads are learning songs by The Kooks on their acoustic guitars.
“When I talk to him about actual contemporary music, he sort of glazes over. Trying to describe how Lil Nas X became successful thanks to TikTok virtually sent him catatonic.
“And when I stopped talking he just put on I Predict A Riot by Kaiser Chiefs and muttered ‘Sound of the future, that.'”
