GOOD new music is going unheralded because nobody will admit to watching Later…with Jools Holland, it has emerged.
Researchers found that despite a general eagerness to brag about discovering new music before ‘the herd’, admitting to staying in watching Jools Holland is seen as a major faux pas.
Sous chef Wayne Hayes said: “I saw Foals on it the other night playing a great song.
“But if I put that on Facebook, people wouldn’t think ‘This guy knows great music’. They’d just think, ‘What a poor bastard. Staying in watching Jools Holland.’
“He must be unemployed and single, and he can’t have Netflix either because if he did he’d surely be watching something on there instead.’
“I’d never have sex with him.”
Hayes added: “Somehow it’s cool to say you watched something about people baking cakes but if you say you stayed in and watched a programme full of live music you sound like someone’s fucking dad.”
Waitress Mary Fisher said: “Jools Holland’s show has some really good newer bands on it, sprinkled among the ageing blues-rock musicians and obligatory boogie-woogie piano.
“Not that I’ve ever seen it of course.”
