Good exposure for LTA! Get some more decent British bands out there instead of that YMA6 shit.

You Me At Six is far from shit
So a band that relies purely on their lead singers haircut and sounds ripped off from US bands such as New Found Glory meets Set Your Goals meets "witty" Brand New rip-off lyrics aren't shit?

They are the embodiment of Kerrang-pushed horseshit with all the substance of a fucking vacuum. The only reason anyone likes them is because they are British, wear Glamour Kills (albeit it not as well as those dashing ATL boys) and apparently any boy with a nice English accent and pretty hair ticks all the right boxes in both the US and with girls who go to Pulp stores in the UK (a shit version of Hot Topic, you see what I'm getting at here?)

But if YMA6 aren't shit, then bands like Reuben, Rolo Tomassi, Tubelord, Johnny Foreigner must be out of this fucking world.

I pretty much agree with everything you're saying however I disagree that ymas are shit, I think that they're actually good at what they do. There is a lot of bands trying to play on the sound of american pop punk bands floating about the UK right now and yet none of them are getting big like ymas. I think you underestimate them slightly, that's not to say I'm their number one fan but I can appreciate that they know who to write a single just like atl can. Comparing them to Rolo Tomassi, another band who after seeing live I definitely appreciate but don't love, is a bit pointless.
Well I certainly agree that they have opened up the floodgates for a British wave of Pop Punk, what with bands like Save Your Breath, Strangle Kojak etc. getting bigger, but that isn't a good thing. In fact, seeing those guys get big whilst other DECENT pop punk bands like Kyoto Drive aren't, simply because they don't have such a "marketable" image is kinda shitty. Don't get me wrong- they are talented musicians (well, Josh) but the fact that they insist on capitalizing on the whole cutesy emo-boy-next-door shtick despite being over 20 years of ages just makes me fucking rage haha.
