Happy Mondays frontman Shaun Ryder has said the current music scene now feels alien to him, and the artist he only gets involved with is children’s TV character Peppa Pig.
“I don’t get involved with the music scene any more,” Ryder has told The Guardian. “It’s just alien to me. For at least the last four years the only artist I’ve been involved with is Peppa Pig. I’ve not had time to do music or listen to new music.”
“I’ve got an 18-year-old at home that blasts stuff out. I’m growing old because I just think he’s fucking daft. He’s into all that [adopts rap voice] “Getting dough, getting fed, got dollllaaaaaar, got more dollar, got biiiiitches” You know all that? Terrible. There’s me, a real old fart aren’t I? You’ve just got to let them get on with it, though, haven’t you?”
The Happy Mondays confirmed earlier this week they now plan to begin work on a new album – the first for the current reformed line-up since 1992 – following a successful reunion tour back in May.Just Published:
