Minutes of the Misery (or: "How The Futureheads' First Day got played 6 times during one show")

...only to be surpassed by Kings Of Leon's Sex on Fire, which got 7 plays.

Ladies and Gentlemen. The first nightlong edition of 'Friday Night Indie Disco' was on last night. Some of us may have hoped that during a ten-hour long programme, the playlist makers could find the time to smash in some of the more eclectic stuff, that we miss so badly. Maybe a video of James Yuill, some Los Camp! or at least some Baddies (who were not only on 120 Minutes, but also ruled the Myspace Chart lately). Oh what a bad disappointment. The new MTV TWO would rather play the same video seven times within one ten-hour-show than show us something fresh and new.

  2. That's disgraceful, it really is. Bland ain't the word, what with the ridiculous amounts of repetition, and nothing slightly out of the ordinary for pre-2000 music, suggests MTV2 have finally lost the plot. It's been a long fall, but they've finally hit rock-bottom.
