PRE-TEENS have confirmed they detest their father’s music, especially The Pixies.
Nine-year-old Nathan Muir confirmed that he would much rather have Now 86 on a loop during car journeys than any music his dad thinks is good.
Muir said: “I know it makes daddy happy to say how much I love the primal energy of The Pixies, but I’ve very little interest in a fat sweaty man who’s really cross.
“Same goes for The Smiths, R.E.M., Sonic Youth, anything that comes in a special expensive box with loads of CDs and a shiny booklet.
“I just want something I can sing along to that doesn’t give me a headache. Failing that, put Radio 4 on so that every eight seconds I can ask what John Humphrys is talking about.”
Muir also asked for a halt to his father’s attempts at getting him to like vinyl records, threatening to put a gouge in his 180-gram reissue of Bryter Later if he does not leave him to play with his Lego.
He added: “I eat breadcrumb turkey dinosaurs, firmly believe vampires exist and my bed is shaped like a space rocket. I’m not really bothered about ‘analogue v digital’.
“And there isn’t enough Sunny D in the world to make me to listen to Neil Young.”
