Johnny Boy – “You Are the Generation That Bought More Shoes and You Get What You Deserve”
UK Indie pop group Johnny Boy essentially had one shot to shoot, but damn if they didn’t make it count. It was originally released as a standalone single in 2004, but was eventually included on Johnny Boy’s one-and-done self-titled album. The title, quite literally, says it all. It’s an incisive skewering of capitalism wrapped in a trashy-chic, bombastic, electro-jangle pop package. Shame they couldn’t live up to the promise of their opening salvo.
