I'm not really down with telling anyone else what to like or not like, that's lame. If people don't enjoy them, fair enough. There is a gripe, somewhere, though, about people who seem to take it as some kind of insult to listen to something that's frivolous (and I mean that as a compliment to the band). Some people seem unable to laugh at themselves in public, which to me is the point of their set - to break down that cynical reserve that everyone has (lord knows I do) and just get people in a good mood. Over and out.
Shows? All of em.

I loved them in Salisbury - such fun and just great to all have a laugh together. There were some right old miseries standing around though! :D

OK, now that I have actually seen them perform last night I find it hard to believe people are being so snotty about them, they were bloody brilliant, and even my old man was won over (and he is usually a miserable old sod).
I particularly enjoyed watching Nigel dancing, he knew all the right moves, I was very impressed.
And for the record, my favourite colour is purple.

I kind of wish i hadn't started this thread now. I have no wish to put anyone down and it was plain to see that many people really enjoyed them. I guess i was just curious as to what Frank saw in them in the first place. I know i seem to be in a minority so good luck to them in entertaining people for years to come. I guess i just want Jay to support him every tour....... :D

looking forward to them here also. And they're surely not as left-field as Dizzee Rascal supporting Muse...

Ah Dizzee ... I thought he was a great guy, but really by the fourth show I had hit my capacity for bounce-bounce-bouncing.

I've enjoyed the heck out of Koo Koo every time. I think the fact that it's so far from anything I do regularly (aside from occasionally pretending I am a dinosaur) adds to the fun of it.

I had seen a lot of stuff -some good, some bad - written about them, so deliberately avoided You Tube videos etc, before I went on Saturday, though from what I'd read, I wasn't expecting to really 'get it'. I can see how they'd be a bit 'Marmite' but I gotta say, I loved them.

A thought came to me "What if the Beastie Boyes had decided to be children's entertainers is this how they would have turned out?"

If you get a chance to see them, let your inhibitions go, join in and you'll have a riot!
