Exciting news. Giles Coren has commented on my song about his snotty email. You can see the comment here. At least I’m guessing it must be him. It’s good of Giles to engage in the debate. Except he hasn’t really. Actually there isn’t much of a debate – I’ve sung the song and some people have posted comments. I don’t think he likes the song, but is pleased that someone went to the effort of writing one. There wasn’t much effort into it really – it’s not my best tune, let’s admit it. Actually I just listened back to it and the end’s quite good.
It’s weird that people have posted about Giles’ racist views on youtube – I hadn’t heard about that – anyone got the evidence? I can’t be arsed to do a google search on it right now. Anyhow, it’s always nice to be noticed, even by the victim of your powerful musical invective, which has surely shaken the media establishment to its foundations. He even had to create a youtube account to make the comment and then complains about the fact that his name’s been taken (he has hilariously called himself gilescorenc**t, if it’s him that is). There may just be someone else called Giles Coren, Giles. Odd, very odd.
Lots of love.
