MUSIC! Never Mind The Buzzcocks, BBC2, 10.00pm

Never Mind The BuzzcocksSo, the dust has settled on Mark Lamarr's chair and the erstwhile King of Popworld, Mr Simon Amstell, has taken over the reins at Casa Buzzcocks. He's been in residence for one week, and let's cast our eye over the messageboards and see what people are saying.

Bungle began with the simple yet potent "he was great", and raspberry called a certain not-reprintable-on-a-family-website quip "brilliant x infinity". groopie was similarly effusive: "I love him. He had no shame in his Girls Aloud jokes, although he really should have chosen Dougie as his favourite member of McFly as everyone knows that is the correct answer", despite common knowledge stating that Harry is the best member of McFly, though that's not under discussion here. It wasn't all sunshine, lollipops and rainbows, however: since I said something incredibly articulate that I shan't repeat here for fear of seeming immodest, and LoveMusic echoed: "It wasn't as good as i had hoped. I am going to be moany also and say that i didn't find Simon's jokes about the use of c* funny."

So there you have it, folks. The word, not at all literally, on the street.

(Don't worry, we didn't forget the Veronica Mars update. It's here.

About Us

According to Marxist theory, cultural forms such as opera, classical music and the literary works of Shakespeare all fall under the heading of high culture. Low culture refers to a wide variety of cultural themes that are characterised by their consumption by the masses. We might not be Marxists, but we do know we loved Footballers Wives. If you do too, you'll know what this is all about.
