Yeah but now he's made his money so he can't sing about being trash with any seriousness

He lives in notting hill so he should sing about things that affect middle class people, like how he has to pay a higher band of council tax but they still only collect the bins one a fortnight

So i lived on a council estate for the first 18 years of my life and went to a rough school. Now i live in a nice house on a mountain with a view over a marina and beach. Have i lost the right to identify with working class people now or should i have stayed if i'd wanted to have those roots?

Your class is determined by your relationship to power, but income for me as well. So you'd need to tell us more about yourself

I just have zero time for rich musicians earning a living off being something they're not. The arts are dominated by wealthy people, from music, cinema, theatre - they do the lot. With a lot of music now, it's run like politics, it's what music/art school you went to, not what you've got to say or how good you are

Allen, Bastille, Mumsy, the 1% take up more than half of the music industry. And the rest is Brit Schoolers.

Just out of interest Sid, on that basis, what class would you place Marx and Engels in?
