One Direction: And don't come back! (Check bottom for credit)

Boy band One Direction have released a mash-up of Blondie's 'One Way or Another' and the Undertones' 'Teenage Kicks'. Wolfgang Bang ain't happy.


So One Direction release a Comic Relief single of Blondie's One Way or Another featuring David Cameron in the video.

And it's mixed up with an Undertones classic to boot.

May they be buggered until prolapse by their Satanic overlords.

This marrow's only going one direction, my idiot meat puppets!


CRITICAL RESPONSE
Rastafarian poet Benjamin Zephaniah described One Direction as "the spawn of Satan" on BBC Radio 4 for ripping off the Clash.

OK, so it wasn't White Riot they defiled but Zephaniah's sentiments are shared by me.

F--king hell, the only good thing that could possibly come from the Blondie/Undertones Comic Relief single could be a rash of teenagers listening to the punk bands mentioned above then defecating fire on all such vacuous paedo-bait pop manikins when they get to the Crass back catalogue.

I live in hope.

Wolfgang Bang
is a former skate punk who dropped the skateboard but remains reliably enraged by various aspects of modern culture. His oaths and verbal abuse still echo around the fashionable Portobello Road area of West London. His hobbies include long-range outdoor drinking, cooking and modern history. He spends much of his time in a hedge with an air rifle, waiting for the rabbits of mass media to pop out of their burrows and graze on the sweet grass of empty promises.
