Justin Asda

I heard a cover of Radiohead‘s “Just” in Asda the other day, which acidbearboy identified for me as the work of Bark Ronson. This feat of acidbearboy‘s was achieved despite my mis-characterising the musical style as “swing”. Fun fact: Bark Ronson‘s parents were members of Bronsonski Beat [RIP Danny Kendall] and are best know nowadays for providing the earworm theme song to Super Meat Boy.

A complete list of all four known popular musical genres, for the curious:

(I’ve obviously left out manufactured groups like Aphex Twin and that novelty band put together to promote Metal magazine Rolling Stone)
