Huey Morgan's Rebel Heroes

Album Review

Fun Lovin’ Criminal salutes the legends and skewers the muppets.

There comes a time in every man’s life when he looks at the popular culture around him and wants to vomit through his nostrils.

Huey Morgan has reached this point on Rebel Heroes: The Renegades Of Music & Why We Still Need Them, a 247-page rant in defence of ‘real’ rock’n’roll, whose militant tone suggests the Fun Lovin’ Criminal wrote it after watching a pack of tweenagers twerk to Miley Cyrus’ Wrecking Ball. Morgan’s opening gambit makes his position clear: “Rock’n’roll died with a bang on 5th April 1994, when Kurt Cobain blew his own head off… it breaks my heart to see the direction it’s taken.”
