Listening Post

There are two kinds of people in the world: People who think that Robbie Williams is the coolest motherfucker in pop music and people who suck.

Here's his brand new single -- Bodies.

I grew up in Germany in the early/mid-90s, when Take That fever was in full swing. Those that weren't there, really couldn't understand...Robbie was always my favourite.

When I left Europe to go to a Bible college on top of a mountain in Georgia, Robbie and Billy Corgan adorned my walls.

He was always the bad boy, long before he went solo. I never kept up with him post TT, except for the occasional headlline-making scandal (like that video with him losing his skin).


If you like pop music, I recommend Take That (Relight My Fire, Pray...).*

The gangstas reading this might prefer some East 17. Ha!

*as much as I could sensibly recommend such a thing

Personally, can't stand Take That, but have undying love for the Robbie. This seems better than the stuff off his last album, thank Christ.

I met him when I was 16, standing in line for his show outside the TLA on South Street in Philly (hands down my favorite venue in that city). He poked his head out a window in his tour bus, looked down at me and said hello. There were pictures.

I just love him.

I was lukewarm (at best) on everything following Sing/Swing, but then along came Rudebox, and that shit was unexpectedly kind of a mini-masterpiece question mark. I didn't even know he had new stuff coming out.
