If you’ve ever thought that no one could be so preposterously immature as to actually write a song like Lick My Love Pump, think again. Ginuwine wrote a song called Pony, which features the following lines (please note that these words are delivered without the slightest hint of irony):

If you’re horny, Let’s do it
Ride it, My Pony
My saddle’s waiting
Come and jump on it

Yeah, that’s amazingly puerile, but surely we can brush piss brained lyrics like these under the carpet and pretend they were never written? Surely no band would be even more stupid than Ginuwine and actually cover it. Here’s a lesson for you, never underestimate the depths of stupidity to which a rock band might stoop.

Far’s cover of Pony certainly rocks, and it was downloaded 19,000 times a day on its release in the U.S. But this proves that Far’s idiocy is matched only by the idiocy and shallow nature of their fans. It’s something of a frightening reflection on the intellect and interests of some people in America.

I like this track, it’s got a good riff and it’s laughable. I doubt that Pony’s genuine fans like it for the same reasons and that is a deeply troubling thought

I started out writing for the Manchester Evening News as a freelance journalist back in 2008. The idea that I would be given free access to music and gigs seemed somehow miraculous to me, and I proceeded to take full advantage of the situation. When the M.E.N. decided to constrict its coverage to only the very biggest bands, Simon Poole approached me with a plan to make sure that all the very talented musicians of this world that pass through and/or live in Manchester would not go unnoticed. As the New Releases editor here at Silent Radio Towers, it remains my proud duty to cast a critical eye over the music and reviews that come my way in a manner that is both supportive and fair. Above all, I strive to write as entertainingly possible. Favourite musicians include the Pixies, Bruce Springsteen, Bob Dylan, The Beatles, Mercury Rev, Os Mutantes, The Knife, Beach House etc etc. I'm a firm believer that all genres (except nu-metal) contain music of great quality...
