The View's Kyle Falconer is too drunk to perform, and yet people seem upset
I’ve never really understood the fuss made about The View. Singer Kyle Falconer has one of the least pleasant voices I think I’ve ever heard. Even when he’s in tune he sounds like he’s not, which in a weird way I suppose is actually quite a talent.
Heard their recent song “5 Rebecca’s” (errant apostrophe alert) accompanied by the video this morning, and heard/saw precisely nowt to alter my opinion. Anyway, it seems Kyle might be keen on hastening the end of the band judging by his shenanigans recently.
Having previously had his collar quite literally felt by the fuzz for carrying naughty powder, Kyle recently got himself so blasted on booze juice that he was unable to sing his ghastly songs.
You’d think that might have cheered up some of the poor blighters who’d foolishly parted with money to listen to the band’s aural cack, but no – it seems some people were actually upset at not hearing him sing.
Apparently he managed to dry-heave his way through a couple of tunes before the lead singer of support band The Law stepped in to cover singing duties.
It doesn’t show a great deal of respect for your audience when you turn up off your cranium, and when you’re a lightweight indie-pop band who got where you are by pretty fortuitous music press backing, it doesn’t look especially good for your prospects.
I was going to post the video for “5 Rebecca’s” below, but the versions I’ve encountered have the embed function disabled. However you will gain a similar sense of excitement from watching this video of paint drying:
